This is another spy thriller book, much the same as David Baldacci. We have our very talented hero, Mitch Rapp, who is better than the average solider, but the only thing is, he never has been in the military. This book is a new one by Flynn, but it is a prequel to many of his other books. It explains how Rapp became the agent/person/assassin he is. ** stop for spoilers*** In this book Mitch is recruited to attend a special boot camp for killers. He and one other person make it through the camp passing. Their first mission is to go and kill an arm dealer in Turkey. Rapp finds out that even though he was unsure of himself at first, he is a natural born killer, and he likes it. So woe to the bad guys, he is on a roll. Another person they target is a banker who cleans money. They get the banker and his codes and drain all of the accounts and move them around so that they will never be able to get the money again. It's pretty fun to watch all of the other bad guys come out of the woodwork trying to find their lost millions. They get captured, tortured and still Mitch saves the day and they are fine. (And of course will be back to save the world another day.)
