Memorial Day. by. Vince Flynn. To the men and women who serve. Mitch Rapp stared through the one-way mirror into the dank, subterranean cement chamber. A man, clothed in nothing more than a pair of underwear, sat handcuffed to a small, ridiculously g chair. A naked lightbulb hung from the ceiling, dangling only a foot or so above him. The stark glare of the light combined with his state of near total exhaustion, caused the man's head to droop forward, leaving his chin resting on his chest. He was dangerously close to losing his balance and toppling over, which was exactly what they wanted. Rapp checked his watch. ( Mitch Rapp - 5 ). Within a subterranean room, Rapp and his team discover a treasure trove of maps, computers, files and bills of lading for multiple freighters heading to US ports - all pointing to plans for a catastrophic attack on Washington DC.

Of the fourteen novels written by Vince Flynn, this is one of my very favorites. Memorial Day has it all: Nonstop action, a thrilling plot that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end, and a character that any red-blooded American can get behind and cheer for in Mitch Rapp.

The story opens with Rapp interrogating a jihadist that holds information regarding a a planned attack on American soil. The interrogation scene is far from over the top or gruesome, and likely won't bother anyone with a weak stomach. From that first chapter on, Rapp is connecting dots and chasing breadcrumbs, trying to locate a nuclear weapon that may or may not already be in the country.

Flynn had knack for understanding geopolitics, and wrote a scene where Mitch and some delta force guys rode into Pakistan via helicopter without notifying the Pakistani government. Their target was a terrorist compound, housing a high priority al -Qaeda leader. The scene in general bears a remarkable resemblance to the real life raid on the compound of Osama bin Laden - which took place many years after Memorial Day was written.

Aside from Mitch Rapp, who is at his absolute best in this novel, all the series regular supporting cast of characters have strong roles. The lone exception being Rapp's wife, Anna, as she's conveniently away on holiday while the bulk of the plot unfolds.

Another hallmark of Flynn's writing was his ability to create compelling bad guys that readers love to hate. This is especially true in Memorial Day, as you'll soon find yourself counting down the pages until the story's leading dirt bag comes face-to-face with Mitch Rapp. In the end, nothing about this book disappointing. It's a total thrill ride that will leave you thoroughly satisfied!

I am currently trying to read the Mitch Rapp series in order as quickly as feasible and with that, you have to read Executive Power. Other readers of that will not the pace much slower than previous books and I say that to highlight how much I wanted to get to Memorial Day. It started somewhat slowly since it continued the previous books' storyline, but that was only for a short time. It quickly begins to pick up and like most of Mr. Flynn's series takes off at a lightning pace with Mitch Rapp focused on taking care of business. This book is worth reading, but if you're reading them in order as I am you already know this. What I will add is that the technical detail is wonderful without being over the top as some other authors like to do. You can also imagine, in your mind's eye, what is happening as you read along, again the mark of a great writer like Mr. Flynn. I look forward to continuing the series and although sadly Mr. Flynn is no longer with us, his books are good enough to read more than once.
I recommend this also as a beach read as I was able to get through Executive Power and Memorial Day in a week at the beach. They're great!

Another good book from Flynn. In this one the hero stops the bad guys (Muslims) from blowing up several cities with nuclear bombs. Naturally the last bomb is a problem and takes some rather creative thinking to deal with it. Rapp is a bit over the top with the way he explodes in front of top level people. I enjoyed the books more where Rapp worked alone or maybe with one or two helpers. They are not as fun with the volume of people that are involved as in with this book. Nevertheless, good plot and excellent story telling.

This was the first book written post-9/11 and is still a very good story despite the unfortunate emphasis on torture and abundant PC drivel about Islam:

“[Mitch Rapp] recited verses from the Koran that condemned the killing of innocent civilians.” Yep… all those many verses… that people say are more often than they actually produce them.

Mitch Rapp again: “Have you never read the Koran and wondered how the imams derive such hate from a book that is so filled with peace and beauty?” Well, I’ve read the Koran. I wonder how anyone derives anything peaceful from a book so full of hate – unless they’re really determined to see what they want to see.

The interrogation scenes are somewhat unrealistic in other ways. Jihadis do not fear death (they call it martyrdom), so threatening to kill a captured terrorist is not going to make him break. Maybe Flynn picked up on this in later books.

Again, as others here have pointed out, this is an entertaining story. I just thought I’d get a few things out.

Flynn does it again; the pacing is at times frenetic as events unfold at a breakneck pace- as the title suggests, the plausibility of this scenario is enough to give anyone with a spark upstairs a cold chill. Would we truly be able to counter the attempts that are outlined in this novel?
As great (and terrible) as the inestimable Mitch Rapp needs to be, what's even more riveting is the story as it unfolds. This is the best Rapp novel yet and I am eager to get to the next!

Very good book all the same characters are there from the U.S. Government and a few new ones get introduced along with some deadly terrorists. Flynn does a great job keeping you in suspense throughout the book with his storyline and what Rapp will do and how he will handle certain situations and people. The book is a real page turner and Vince Flynn / Mitch Rapp special If you like his books you'll like this book.
