    CIA counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp falls prey to government forces with an agenda of their own after Dr. Irene Kennedy is named the successor to dying CIA Director Thomas Stansfield—a choice that enrages many inside the world’s most powerful intelligence agency. Her detractors will resort to extreme measures to prevent her from taking the reins—which makes Rapp an expendable asset. But Mitch Rapp is no one’s pawn, and he will stop at nothing to find out who has set him up.

    William says: "A great novel nearly ruined by the reader."

    Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

    I liked that it dealt with current issues regarding computer security and the Chinese threat.


    What about Lou Diamond Phillips’s performance did you like?

    Lou Diamond Phillips does another great job of making the characters come alive.

    Newly appointed CIA director Dr. Irene Kennedy is the target of an inside plot to destroy her and prematurely end the American President's term. To make matters worse, Saddam Hussein is close to entering the nuclear arms race - something Israel has vowed to stop. With the haunting specter of World War III looming, the president calls on his secret weapon: top counter-terrorism operative Mitch Rapp. But with only two weeks to take out the nukes, Rapp is up against a ticking clock - and impossible odds.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Mitch Rapp is a "man's man" Ken Kaliban's voice emasculates him! His high pitched voice turns Mitch into a pathetic whiner. Further, Kaliban has little sense of timing; i.e., he doesn't know when to speak in a forceful way or in a more natural tone, many times feigning anger when the context does not call for it. Particularly irritating is his technique of starting a sentence out strong and loud and then ending it in almost a whisper. Once or twice is okay but he does it with almost every sentence.
    I suffered through the terribly irritating narration only because the story was good and I didn't want to miss the installment in the series. No need for you to do the same: buy the book but skip the audio!
