Best CIA series
Vince always keeps you on the edge of your seat. This book keeps you wondering about the next move and the plot thickens the farther you go.
George Guidall is by far one of the best readers out there. Anyone who has read the Gunslinger is aware of that. I will listen to a book just because he is the reader.
Not sure about that. Maybe when Irene shows a different side of herself about her agents that are killed.
The Mitch Rapp character, the intelligence of the story and it's characters.
The change in Rapp's character after he was injured.
I'd like to see Mitch get involved with the fornsic agent he was flirting with in the hospital.
The story is pretty seethrough - but then I have read/listened to a few of these books by now. The caracters is what make this story good. I got really involved with the caracters and could relate to all of them. Some made me really irritated for being so extremly naive and gullible with no critical sense at all, while others intrigued me and made me want to learn more about them. The storyline was pretty basic and one knew the outcome pretty quickly. I bought this book because I was hopeing it would be different - but I was let down there. I also had a bit of a problem with the narrator - his speach was not clear enough for my liking - at the same time his performance matched the caracters in the book. I guess its just me who is not used to this slurry speach.
Good enough but no surprises unless you get excited about the caracters. I would recommend it for braindead entertainment.
I have been waiting on the edge of my seat for another Mitch Rapp installment especially one that didn't focus on the back story and this sure did not disappoint.
Another gripping performance by George Guidall also.
It was great for Flynn to be back on track with Rapp & leave the prequels. Another classic that was exciting to listen to; did not disappoint!
I love all Mitch Rapp books
The only dissapointment is I have to wait for the next book
Mitch Rapp is like Led Zeppelin. Hard, fast and you never grow tired of them. He is the baddest man on the planet and no other writer has come close to capturing a like character like him. DO NOT END THIS FRANCHISE!!!
the irony of the present day political insanity engulfing this wonderful USA being presented in a fiction novel or is it what is really occuring in our out of control political environment.
All of Rapps actions are indelible
yes i have, and consider Mr. Guidalls performances outstanding
I feel it would be a travisity to attempt to put this in a film version,one needs to internalize the statement that Vincent Flynn is presenting.
The storyline is familiar to those who've listened to this series before, revisiting Afghanistan and with familiar characters. The narrator is excellent: his voice, pacing and done are excellent and very suitable for the novel.
Mitch Rapp. Definitely, although, interestingly enough, Kennedy is good too.
Just a good, tight novel with characters I've become familiar with over the rest of the series.
I would not say this is the best in the Mitch Rapp series (my personal faves are Executive Power and Extreme Measures), but the author delivers a gripping tale that had me riveted till the end.
What originally made me enjoy Clancy's Jack Ryan and Robert Ludlam's (now Erik Von Lustbader's) Jason Bourne is the action, espionage, and intrigue. Clancy petered out near the end, obvious farming the series out to ghost writers. Von Lustbader has beautifully picked up the torch from the Ludlam estate and consistantly delivers fun, engaging spy stories. As does Mr. Flynn with this series!
George Guidall, as usual, nails the vocal performance on all the characters in the novel. His voice is Mitch Rapp in my head. It was hard to go back and listen to first three books in the series (recorded before they signed Mr. Guidall on to read the series), they all pale to George.
Most definitely. Kept my attention for the entire listening.
I came into this series on Book 4: Executive Power. I loved it so much, I plowed through all of them up to Book 12, which was the newest at the time. I eagerly await each new novel as they are released.
I went back to listen to 1-3 but really could not get into the pre-Guidall narrators, he is so far superior that the others paled in comparison.
If you love spy novels, this is a must-read (listen) series!
