This writer can't touch Vince Flynn. All the elements are there, but it just falls flat. There's not enough of Irene Kennedy in the stories. She was always a big part of them. There's no denying Mitch Rapp was always a tough and mean guy, but now he seems unnecessarily viscous. It's time for Mitch to recover from his wife's death and calm him down a bit. He's been angry long enough.
