    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.

Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    Story
    What did you like best about Mockingjay? What did you like least?

    Best: The story continues. . . Least: Got tired of the "woo is me", it gets too "dark" for me in the city battle.


    Would you recommend Mockingjay to your friends? Why or why not?

    Would have too, because I liked the first two books, but would warn them.


    Have you listened to any of Carolyn McCormick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The first two books. . .definitely not as good.


    Was Mockingjay worth the listening time?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    The concept was shocking, but it worked once you started the first book.

    It's just seven days before Memorial Day, and a spike in CIA intelligence has pointed to a major terrorist attack on the United States. Now it's up to counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp to pull out all the stops. Rapp immediately leaves for Afghanistan, where he leads a special forces unit on a daring commando raid across the border into a remote Pakistani village. Their target: an al-Qaeda stronghold. Rapp and his team soon discover plans for a catastrophic nuclear attack on Washington, DC.

    Guy says: "Flynn's best Mitch Rapp Book"
    "Wow!"
    Overall

    I loved it. . . from start to finish it was fantastic. I listened to the book while I was on the treadmill. Each day I looked forward to exercising just to hear the book. Yesterday I went a half-hour longer just to keep listening!
