CIA counterterrorism expert Mitch Rapp is sent on a mission to stop a German industrialist selling sensitive materials to a terrorist sponsor, unaware that he is being set up by forces in Washington who will do anything to see him fail.

Simon and Schuster
When diplomacy has failed and military intervention is deemed inappropriate, our leaders sometimes take THE THIRD OPTION.

CIA counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp falls prey to government forces with an agenda of their own after Dr. Irene Kennedy is named the successor to dying CIA Director Thomas Stansfield -- a choice that enrages many inside the world's most powerful intelligence agency. Her detractors will 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.

The late Vince Flynn was a thriller writer who was prescient on the dangers of terrorism, beginning his Mitch Rapp series in the 1990s. The Third Option was the second publication with two prequels published more recently. In this entry series Rapp is sent to assassinate a German arms dealer who is selling forbidden technology to Saddam Hussein. Rapp is double-crossed and, trusting no one, goes on a mission to find out who is behind it. The Third Option is a classic spy thriller which leaves the door open for a sequel.

This is the third Vince Flynn book I've read. Although I really like Flynn's books, and he is unquestionably a good writer, I was a bit disappointed at the loose end at the end of the book. This was obviously done to continue the series, but wasn't really necessary. You hate to get to the end of an adventure and have loose ends. Other than that, the book is a very quick and enjoyable read.
