Fun times in Costa Rica. Eco tour and learned so much. Oversees Adventure Travel is the way to go if you want to visit somewhere
Great twist by the author.Had me going huh? What? at the end. Well done Vince RIP
Exciting with international travel, bad guys revealed and colorful characters. Some killed. Some spared. The nucleus of favorite characters remain. All narrators are similar so stop fussing the reading of such great words of great writing/spoken word
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
The White House has been infiltrated and attacked. Fortunately, the president is one of his in one of the underground bunkers along with many other hostages/White House employees. Most of the Secret Service has been murdered and these terrorists are taking turns terrorizing the women with lewd comments and process promises beyond comprehension.
The terrorists are attempting to get to the president so that they can show the world that they are more powerful than the United States of America. They are drilling to get into the extremely fortified bunker in order to get the president.
Who does one call when said situation is taking place? That's an easy answer, Mitch Rapp. He is loosely under the direction of the CIA, but he does his own thing for the president and CIA Director Thomas Stansfield/Irene Kennedy. He will know what to do, how to fix things and get the president out safely.
At the same time, a different set of special forces making plans to rescue the president with the loss of as few lives as possible, Mitch is kind of flying but the seat of his pants and has no use for waiting around. So before any of them can see it, he is gone and en route under the tunnels of the White House to get inside.
I won't try to express the action and adventure because I cannot do it justice. However, I will tell you that this is the first book in which NBC reporter Anna Riley is introduced. Mitch finds himself staring at a horrible scene as one of the terrorist attempts to rape Anna Riley. She is a fighter and she's fighting back but she is no match for this strong animal. At the expense of ruining his whole mission, Mitch Rapp helps her escape.
From then on a party of three, including Riley, individuals tries to come up with the best plan to get to the president before any terrorists can. It is exciting, action-packed, brilliant thrilling, writing by Vince Flynn.
Notes: graphic/extreme violence-including description of attempted rape & strong language
This would fit right into the rated R category, easily.

I always like Vince Flynn's books. However, this was a different reader and sometimes I couldn't tell who was talking because the reader didn't have enough change in the voices. I enjoyed the other reader more.
Absolutely and have recommended series to all my "listening" friends.
Flynn's characters are well balanced.
Sullivan does a very nice job. However, Guidall is my favorite
Much to my embarrassment find myself talking to the characters while listening no matter the surroundings. People have actually responded "beg your pardon" or "you're talking to yourself again."
On to the next title.
I love Vince Flynn but Nick Sullivan is horrible. He sounds so bored and literally put me to sleep. Listening to him was truly painful... Great book, amazing story, please get a new narrator!
Great story, multiple intriguing threads, real thriller...terrible narration. Nick Sullivan's voice has an overpowering nasal quality that just gets worse when he uses alternate tones and accents to represent different characters. At points in the story, he sounds like the squid character from my children's sponge bob squarepants cartoons. Great story, true to Vince Flynn's talent...but I really wish they'd re-record with a better narrator.
