bookshelves: action

I like Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp Character. You get action but the character is more fully imagined than some. Of course it took a few books to fill him out and it seems that he may be somehow distantly related to the Cartwright family of the Ponderosa. (view spoiler)

Anyway, here we drop back and get a prequel (not a big fan of prequels in general, but this one works and I like it). We've seen Rapp's life in the trenches so to speak now we drop back to his enrollment in "government service". Then we launch out and accompany him on his first missions.

No spoilers needed here if you like "actioners" and/or your already a fan of Rapp then I'd say you'll like this one. From his first day and his "personality conflict" (understatement is a wonderful thing) to his first meeting with the "Company shrink" and on to his first "kill", this is the Mitch Rapp "origin story".
