The Third Option

Read by Armand Schultz

CIA counter-terrorism operative Mitch Rapp falls prey to government forces with an agenda of their own. When Dr. Irene Kennedy is named the successor to dying CIA Director Thomas Stansfield -- many inside the world's most powerful intelligence agency are enraged. Her detractors resort to extreme measures to prevent her from taking the reins -- which makes Rapp an expendable asset. But Mitch Rapp is no one's pawn, and he will stop at nothing to find out who has set him up.

Another superb addition to the Mitch Rapp series by the late Vince Flynn. After ignominiously discovering the seduction of Vince Flynn’s catalogue only last year (three years after his passing), I’ve since determined to read each installment and look forward to becoming enthralled with each. This, “The Third Option,” is the third in the Flynn catalogue and the second in the Mitch Rapp series and it continues Flynn’s extraordinary talents and painstaking attention to detail. In this episode, we find our hero looking anxiously toward retirement with this, his self-imposed final mission. He’s met and fallen in love with national network news reporter Anna Reilly and he’s determined to put this period of subversive violence, loneliness and subterfuge behind him to start anew.

Honoring a commitment for one last mission however, Rapp finds himself in Germany, surveilling and ultimately removing a rogue German Chancellor. Teamed with two other seemingly benign operatives, something still grates at his instinct: there is something not at all right about this assignment and as his surveillance turns into execution, Mitch is proven correct. During the violent shootout, he barely escapes with his life and must use all his skills to make a clean getaway.

Suspecting immediately that there is a leak in his CIA sponsored command, he returns to the U.S. to angrily confront his leaders CIA Director Thomas Stansfield and Terrorism Chief Irene Kennedy. Once mollified, he sets out to find the leak…also adding to his unbridled anger is the kidnap of his love Reilly; Rapp literally transforms into a kill or be killed personae and Flynn excels with a demonstrative conclusion that of course gives great satisfaction to the reader.

One unturned stone though is the clear misanthropic ending that allows the ultimate villain to live another day…indeed this novel makes no attempt whatsoever to disguise the fact that there will be a sequel and for those hardcore Rapp fans, this is pure enticement.

And so to conclude, the late Vince Flynn succeeded magnificently once more with “The Third Option.” Carrying forward his amazing storytelling talents along with his usual tenacious research and obvious passion for these details, we the reader are again treated with an amazingly thorough and provocative tome. And as I keep telling myself, thank god there are many more like this in the Flynn catalogue.

I'm a big fan of a number of genres, the spy thriller a favorite among them. The best of the bunch aren't the killer machines (tho they possess the skills and gumption), or the bumbling type, but the ex-military, skilled beyond compare types who struggle with juggling their ultra-dangerous calling while attempting to hold onto their humanity and thus avoiding the soulless killer mentality that constantly threatens to overtake them. Fans of Jack Bauer, Jason Bourne- even James Bond, will find a lot to like about Mitch Rapp.
The prose tends to be hard hitting- but intelligent as well. The writer has passed away in the prime of his life, so there are only 13 or 14 novels in which he has written, tho I hear tell of a talented associate who has taken over writing duties. What this means for Mitch only time will tell. Much of the novel is about the set up and the author seems to have an in-depth knowledge of the seamier side of politics and those who play the game. The principal characters may seem formulaic and one-dimensional at first, but I urge you to read on, get to know them. It is well worth it.
When he's not "on the job", Mitch is very much a regular guy, with some truly awesome skillsets and a penchant for cutting thru the typical BS to get to the heart of the matter. In fact, he reminds me most of Jack Bauer, and if you know anything about him or the series 24, you know that is no bad thing.
I could go on, but it is much better (and more rewarding) for you to draw your own conclusions. I'll be here to tell you "I told you so"!

There are 13 books so far in the Mitch Rapp series. I have read the previous 3 + 1. The +1 is Term Limits which is an introduction to a lot of characters introduced in the Mitch Rapp series.
I really love the books I have read so far. Very engrossing, fast paced ( although at some places there is way too much detail into a character's back ground. Characters, that are just passing thru the book and will never appear again.
So far I find the books...., cant put it down type of books.
The reason for the 3 stars is. I really, really, cannot stand the personality Mr Flynn has been giving the females("significant half").
They all start off as strong, sensible women. In this book Rapp's girlfriend is a reporter, Anna Rielly, who originally appeared in book # 3 ( Transfer of Power). She is a White House reporter. is strong enough to get over rape ( when she was in collage, i think), was held hostage & beaten by terrorists in the previous book ( that is how She met Mitch). But now that She is with Mitch, She is a watering pot, is always acting immature, wants to call the police all the time, even though Mitch keeps explaining to Her, its a matter of National security and the local police cannot be involved. Just plain stupid.
Mr Flynn has done the same with Rapps previous Girlfriend Greta Ohlmeyers, in Book# 2, Kill Shot.
The same with another character Congressman O'Rourke's Girlfriend (now Wife), Liz Scarlatti.
And yet the other women in the books, Irene Kennedy, Francine Neville (from Kill Shot) are very likable women.
Mr Flynn got rid of Greta. Hence Anna came along. I seriously hope Anna is gone too in all the future series I plan to read.

I loved this book. Just starting the next one to see what happens with Senator Clark trying to undermine the CIA. It took Mitch a while to find out who his enemy really is and still hasn't discovered the entire truth. The is exciting to say the least. I'm sorry to read that the boss, Thomas Stansfield is very ill. It's a character that I really enjoyed because of his calm demeanor. It's a good thing he has the President's ear. There are too many people who don't like him and are willing to go to great lengths to dethrone him. I'm sorry I started reading this series to late but I'm so excited to be reading it now. I will catch up with all the Mitch Rapp books in the coming year.
