Improve on the significant half/s
Reviewed in the United States on July 21, 2014
There are 13 books so far in the Mitch Rapp series. I have read the previous 3 + 1. The +1 is Term Limits which is an introduction to a lot of characters introduced in the Mitch Rapp series.
I really love the books I have read so far. Very engrossing, fast paced ( although at some places there is way too much detail into a character's back ground. Characters, that are just passing thru the book and will never appear again.
So far I find the books...., cant put it down type of books.
The reason for the 3 stars is. I really, really, cannot stand the personality Mr Flynn has been giving the females("significant half").
They all start off as strong, sensible women. In this book Rapp's girlfriend is a reporter, Anna Rielly, who originally appeared in book # 3 ( Transfer of Power). She is a White House reporter. is strong enough to get over rape ( when she was in collage, i think), was held hostage & beaten by terrorists in the previous book ( that is how She met Mitch). But now that She is with Mitch, She is a watering pot, is always acting immature, wants to call the police all the time, even though Mitch keeps explaining to Her, its a matter of National security and the local police cannot be involved. Just plain stupid.
Mr Flynn has done the same with Rapps previous Girlfriend Greta Ohlmeyers, in Book# 2, Kill Shot.
The same with another character Congressman O'Rourke's Girlfriend (now Wife), Liz Scarlatti.
And yet the other women in the books, Irene Kennedy, Francine Neville (from Kill Shot) are very likable women.
Mr Flynn got rid of Greta. Hence Anna came along. I seriously hope Anna is gone too in all the future series I plan to read.
