I’m a fan of author Vince Flynn. My husband is a huge fan. He’s gets the latest as soon as it hits the bookstores, then zips through each book. I’m playing catch-up.
At the end of the previous book, a new president was about to come into power and Rapp’s boss, champion, and friend, CIA Director Irene Kennedy, was on her way out. I wondered how Rapp would continue without Kennedy there to take the brunt of the wrath aimed at America’s assassin, or as he’s more politely called: America’s top counterterrorism operative.
As always, there’s a lot of action, suspense, bad guys and killing in the book. Rapp has a lot to deal with in Protect and Defend, from terrorists, Israel and Iran on the brink of war, a new President coming into power, and Kennedy. Things go very wrong and Kennedy is not only in danger of losing her job, she may lose her life.
Protect and Defend was another fast-paced, intense read by Vince Flynn. If you like thrillers, politics, international intrigue, and a character who kills but is someone you’d want on your side, then I can recommend Protect and Defend.
FTC Disclaimer: I didn’t buy this book. My husband did. But what’s his is mine, so…either way, my money was used. I don’t know Vince Flynn, although if he should happen to stop by this blog, Hi Vince, call me the next time you’re in Texas, I’ll make chili and cornbread. Where was I? Oh yeah, the book was not given to me. No one asked me to do a review/recommendation.
P.S. Vince, do you like your chili mild or hot? Remember, hot in Texas is really hot.
