I drive a truck. Audible helps the miles go by. I normally look for LONG books. 30 Hrs+. Latest is the North and South Trilogy. (Still waiting for Heaven and Hell)
I'll ALWAYS recommend anything by Vince Flynn!! He's remarkable in his writing and his grasp of current conflicts within governmental agencies!
Good plot. Well drawn characters. The story moves along pretty quickly and kept me engaged.
I wouldn't have spent the credit on this book knowing exactly what this book was about, I'm brand new to Vince Flynn. I got it based on the other recommendations. I loved everything about it. I'm now actually reading another of his and decided to save the rest of his books for audio, so the narration made an impact. Just Excellent.
Will listen again as the story goes fast and you get caught up in situations that make your mind run.
Rapp is the person we hope is out their defending us.
If you haven't listened to a Vince Flynn or a thriller book - this is a good starting point that will probably get you hooked.
I'm certainly glad this was my first Vince Flynn novel because I love a good story, and he delivered from the start. The depth of his characters, as narrated by George Guidall, gave such a sense of intrigue that I couldn't get enough. I am now a fan, and I highly recommend to anyone who appreciates good storytelling.
I love good history books about WW II, the Civil War, and the Revolutionary War. I like other good books about life and cooking.
The book and performance was as good as it gets in this type of fiction. I loved the ending.
I liked all of the characters. The major characters were all needed for the book to work.
It kept me in suspense all of the way. The women's parts in the book where very good because they where real.
I would highly recommend this book to those that like this type of fiction. It is well written and holds your interest. And Mr. Guidall did the book proud.
I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
Vince Flynn is my favorite author of the counter--terrorism genre. I have never been disappointed with any of his counter-terrorism novels and I have read all of them. He never "dials in" his next book, riding on the success of his last. This story is thoroughly satisfying giving us a fast moving "surprise ending" plot set in current period Afghanistan. It gives us a vision of the complexity of working with challenging allies. As always, our hero Mitch Rapp, "kicks ass and takes names". I also enjoyed Vince's insight on U.S., as well as, Afghanistan inter-governmental intrigue. As always Mitch Rapp satisfies by rooting out the terrorists. I look forward to Vince Flynn's next Mitch Rapp adventure! I recommend highly.
Love mystery, Favs-Clancy, King,
Up with the best!
The description in detail of the torture and attacks
Going to read more of the Rapp series now!
The determined Mitch and his boss and other members of the team, efforts to expose the mole in their mist.
Recognition that the damaged camera left at the site where the abducted agent, was tortured was left with intent to convince team that the abduction was real.
When the FBI agent was sent back to the US, without achieving his goal of pursuing Mitch for misappropriation of funds. Also the scene in the bank vaults.Yes
How closely it mirrored the truth as to what goes on in our government.
