    During the early years of the Iraq War, the US Army was unable to translate initial combat success into strategic and political victory. Iraq plunged into a complex insurgency, and defeating this insurgency required beating highly adaptive foes. A competition between the hierarchical and vertically integrated Army and networked and horizontally integrated insurgents ensued. The latter could quickly adapt and conduct networked operations in a decentralized fashion; the former was predisposed to fighting via prescriptive plans under a centralized command and control.

    The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

    Where does The Last Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Another great Mitch Rapp novel. And it leaves many questions unanswered for more Mitch.


    What other book might you compare The Last Man to and why?

    It helps put the Middle East in perspective.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    The mystery slowly unfolds and unexpected turns show up on the next page.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Good narration.


    Any additional comments?

    More Mitch.

    The action begins six days after a series of explosions devastated Washington, D.C., targeting the National Counterterrorism Center and killing 185 people, including public officials and CIA employees. It was a bizarre act of extreme violence that called for extreme measures on the part of elite counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp and his trusted team member, Mike Nash.

    If you could sum up Pursuit of Honor in three words, what would they be?

    Mitch shares the stage with another CIA agent and we see another side of terrorist.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    This book reminds us that terrorism is a constant threat and it's target is us.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    The right voice with the right inflections.


    Any additional comments?

    We continue to enjoy the Mitch Rapp series. Vince Flynn has found a way to keep each book new and exciting.

    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.
