BOOK REVIEW: CONSENT TO KILL
Consent to Kill is a non-stop trip of counter-intelligence spy work. Vince Flynn has a great follow-up to Memorial Day, which I also thoroughly enjoyed.
Consent to Kill features Matt Rapp, a top CIA spy that works in areas where no one works, if you get what I mean. His job does not exist officially. The story starts with the appointment of a new director of National Intelligence, Mark Ross, who is actually the CIA director Irene Kennedy’s boss. Mitch Rapp does not like Ross; wants nothing to do with him. Mitch follows his own rules, rules that he has to use to dispose of our nations enemies. Ross does not want a “loaded cannon” and tries to reign in Mitch. Irene Kennedy tells Mitch to do as she requests, not Ross!
Mitch has many friends in the spy business, some he has worked with many times before, both for the United States as well as other nations. Mitch needs every one of these friends to assist him in finding and eliminating those terrorizing the United States. Mitch’s wife knows how dangerous her husband’s work is and realizes she has to be careful herself. She is always in danger too, but the code of ethics of spies is not to hurt families of other spies, but this code does not always work, as Mitch finds out.
Follow Mitch on his trips across continents as he follows leads, clues, and his own instincts running down the culprits trying to destroy the infidel Americans. Mitch becomes the hunter at times while he also hunts others that would kill him. Consent to Kill is a book you will not want to put down. While the book is rather large, it is great reading. I know you will enjoy this book and you will feel as though you were actually involved in the action trying to help Mitch Rapp. This adventurous and fast moving story opens ones eyes a to what goes on in the world of espionage and terrorism and how so many are affected by their actions.
