Mitch setup Nash for promotion
Pursuit of Honor - Vince Flynn

Mitch considered himself damaged goods.

 

He also wrongly used abortion issue to point out the hypocrisy of the senators on the left. 

 

The beauty of the left is their desire to uphold themselves as the ideal state. Not a bad thing.

 

The settings up of the story is pretty good. How a person could struggle between working in a dangerous job and having a family. 

 

The other part is good too. The bad guys are on the run. The bad guy has an intelligent team mate who prepared them to disappear in the middle of rural America and wait until things die down before moving back home.

 

Fortunately for the good guys, the bad guys are having a power struggle. The over-sized ego has ruined the preparation. Now the bad guys are split into two teams. 

 

Overall, pretty interesting read. It is kind of obvious that Mitch is closer to the hardliner who preferred to treat the terrorists as threat always and eliminated them with any mean.  While the other political values are also closer to the Republican camp. That is the only part I dislike about this. The Republicans are not that detail in thinking and not very good in seeing where the left wing come from. Maybe watching more real news instead of Fox news. 

 

Anyway, still good to see how the other party things.

Mitch being put on trial
Extreme Measures - Vince Flynn

Mitch is going after terrorists. Senators are going after Mitch for his method of gaining information from terrorists. 

 

Mitch goal is clear. He  based on solid intel and go after terrorists so he and his team could stop terrorist attack.

 

The goal of the senator Lonsdale is go after Mitch and Nash for treating captured terrorists badly. Senators seems to missed the point why Mitch did what he did and his goal.

 

So the story played this out. Two cells of terrorists were intercepted and there is a third cell at large. 

 

As Mitch is the good guy in the story, the story seems more right leaning. if there is no oversight, CIA operative would only rely on their ethic to keep themselves in check for not abusing power.

 

Mitch got a lot of empathy as his motivation is simple. To protect lives.  Terrorists who have no problem killing children are not someone that could persuade through dialogue. 

 

Nash story is good too. He is a diaper changing modern man who make sure diaper is change with the same effectiveness as he change ammunition for gun. He still have his family he sorries about, while running into danger. 

 

The story is also told from the perspective of the terrorists. The selfishness of leadership and how little they value human lives. 

 

A bit more political story. Yet it is good to raise this to allow readers to think it through where they stand on this issue and why. As a more left leaning reader, it is good to read what the other side thing and how there could be compromise in time of crisis.

 

4 stars.
