NRB Book Club: Vince Flynn’s “American Assassin”


American Assassin tells how superagent Mitch Rapp, scourge of the jihadis got to be superagent Mitch Rapp. Surprisingly, Vince Fynn’s prequel to the Mitch Rapp series is more like a Frederick Forsyth (Day of the Jackal) book with its detailed description of agent training, international networks and tradecraft. Of course, in the end Rapp still gets to send his share of terrorists off to find out if the 72 vigins thing is for real.

Editor’s note: A full length review of this book will appear in FrontPage Magazine soon.
