When diplomacy has failed and military intervention is deemed inappropriate, our leaders often turn to a silent and dark community for results. This is a course of action not always taken by wise and honorable men. In certain circles it is known as

The Third Option

Fresh from retaking a battle-scarred White House after a vicious terrorist attack, Mitch Rapp, the CIA's top counter-terrorism operative, is sent on his final mission. His target: a well-known German industrialist who has been selling highly sensitive equipment to one of the world's most notorious sponsors of terrorism. As Rapp meticulously prepares to take the man out, he has no idea that there are forces within his own government that are plotting to use him.

The conspirators have devised a bold plan that will damage the president and ruin the career of the incoming director of the CIA's Counter-terrorism Center. Unfortunately, they have made one horrible miscalculation: they have chosen Mitch Rapp as their pawn. Their worst nightmare is about to be realized. They have enraged one of the most lethal and efficient killers the CIA has ever produced -- and he will stop at nothing until he finds out who set him up.

With action that sizzles from the opening paragraph and insider details that bring the story to vivid life, The Third Option showcases a New York Times bestselling author who is just hitting the peak of his extraordinary storytelling powers.

  • Gunther Ilse

    This was a great story, left me hanging at the end. The narrator also great.

  • Joe Aliano

    Term Limits is still my favorite, but I still really liked this book.

  • josh lourdon

    Vince and Brad Thor are the best in this genre. Flynn's talented writing will be missed. Hopefully Kyle Mills can carry on his legacy with new books that will contribute to the series and not detract from it.

    Otherwise it is a DEFINITE 5. Love the Mitch Rapp series and this one does not disappoint. WONDERFUL characters, compelling story, great twists. A truly GREAT read.

    I've now read all but one of Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp stories - some audio, some print. I actually read them out of order, having first noticed Flynn with Consent to Kill. It's been quite enjoyable to start with the current Rapp, then go back and see how he and the other characters got to where they are today. I crave Rapp stories and this one was as good as expected. My only regret is that it was an abridged version.

  • Jeff Wesenberg

    Great book, very suspensful and well read. I definitely recommend it
