The second book in the Mitch Rapp series sees him actually out in the field. Rapp has been disposing of dangerous men in a network of arms dealing and terrorists. To date, he hasn't had an issue with any of his hits, which is unusual. The team wonders when he's going to make his first mistake. That happens in Paris, where he is ambushed with a team of men that come in to the hotel room spraying bullets. Rapp manages to escape but was shot in his shoulder. He thinks he was set up by someone on the inside and doesn't know who to trust.
The first book in the series focuses on Rapp's training and wasn't the best thriller I've read. This one is much better, as Rapp is out in the field and solving problems on the go. With about 50 pages left in the book, I was starting to wonder how they were going to wrap up all the loose ends but they did a good job of doing it quickly without glossing over any details.
I'm looking forward to the next in the series!
