This book was acceptable, but nothing to rave about. It had the typical action of the other Mitch Rapp books, and the forced "love interest" of other Mitch Rapp books. It got me down the road and didn't put me to sleep, but certainly nothing to get worked up over.
I made the mistake of starting to listen to this book at about 11pm. Finally turned it off at 4am so I could get 3 hours sleep before the alarm went off. After 5 minutes, you're into it.
I had hoped the book would have gone on for a couple more chapters, but the ending was appropriate and well done.
The easiest 5 stars ever assigned. This is actually a good first read for those new to Vince Flynn. Then do the Vince Flynn books in order.
Flynn hits a home run again! The only thing wrong with the experience of hearing Guidall bring Rapp to life as only he can is that it's just like dining out on a good steak...it's so delicious that you know you should take your time and savor every minute, but just can't help yourself when you devour it like a maniac and suddenly it's over before you know it. Pure genius to take us back to the beginning, Vince. Hold on tight, Rapp fans. Another great kick in the teeth to the PC crowd.

Not sure, someone who liked generics spy novels?
The whole book seems to be about Hurley's temper tantrums. Also I have to say that Rapp is a completely cardboard character. I've rarely read a book with so little development of the main character.
He has a great voice, but he sounds the way you'd expect Hurley to sound (gruff) and so it seems weird for him to be voicing all the other characters.
A few parts are pretty fun.
For those who like Archer, I think the show may have been slightly influenced by this book.
