This is the second book in the Mitch Rapp series. I recently read the first one, American Assassin: A Thriller (Mitch Rapp Book 1), and was excited to get to the second one. I have to say I wasn't disappointed! I recommend this one to anyone who might like to follow a spy/assassin around without actual bullets flying past them. Now I'm ready to start in on #3 of the series, Transfer of Power (Mitch Rapp Book 3).
