Publisher's Summary

Fearless counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp finds himself directly in the line of fire in the latest riveting political thriller from New York Times best-selling author Vince Flynn.

For years, Mitch Rapp's bold actions have saved the lives of countless Americans. His battles for peace and freedom have made him a hero to many, and an enemy to countless more. In the tangled, duplicitous world of espionage, there are those, even among America's allies, who want to see Mitch Rapp eliminated. They have decided the time has come.

Now, the powerful father of a dead terrorist demands vengeance in its simplest form, an eye for an eye, and Rapp instantly becomes the target of an international conspiracy. This time, he must use all of his vigilance and determination to save himself before he can turn his fury on those who have dared to betray him.

Consent to Kill takes listeners behind the headlines and catapults them to the front lines of the global war on terror. It sizzles "with inside information, military muscle, and CIA secrets" (Dan Brown). Vince Flynn mixes military technology with his exclusive knowledge of Washington politics to create a hero that Americans will wish existed outside the realm of fiction.

    "Another exciting Vince Flynn thriller"

    Ok, so if I say anything bad about this book will Mitch Rapp hunt me down? Lucky for me, I have nothing bad to say. Enjoy.

    Story
    "Highly recommended: Thumbs up!"
    What did you love best about Consent to Kill?

    I listen to audio books while doing other tasks often, and there were several moments that left me stopping my tasks to put all my focus on the story. In other words, great story line. Ending leaves you with a warm very human feeling of understanding that makes you want to jump in the book and give the main character a hug. Narrator, George Guidall was absolutely wonderful. He really brought the characters to life. =) Great read! (=


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    All characters were done very well. Mitch's vocal was done very very well, buy my fav was the french woman. I would think it would be more comical to hear a man do a french woman's voice, but George did very well. Anyone else, I might have focused more on the funny voice rather than the story. lol Great job, George.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No it was here and there for about two months, but story was easy to follow for the most part--so I picked up where I left off quite easily. =)


    Any additional comments?

    I rated this book 5 stars across the board because I just could not think of anything I did not like. I know some people hold high standards for things that are highly recommended, and you should--but try not to pre-judge and hold an expected standard. Just enjoy the new experience with an open mind. =)(=

    Happy readings! =)

    "VERY Entertaining!"

    I loved this book. This was my first Vince Flynn book and I loved it. My plan is to read all of his books (or listen). I am saddened by the news of his death and my prayers go out to his family and close friends. He was an excellent writer and they can all be very proud of the legacy he leaves behind.

    "Boring!!!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Narrated poorly -- story is very boring -- it just wanders all over -- listened for 45 minutes and couldn't take it any more.

    maybe


    Would you be willing to try another one of George Guidall’s performances?

    no


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    can I get another book

    "I am really enjoying Vince Flynn"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I have listened to almost all of them now. I can knit while I am listening and they really hold my attention. I might have to go through them all again.

    "Not the best Vince Flynn book"
    What did you like best about Consent to Kill? What did you like least?

    I'm a new Vince Flynn/Mitch Rapp fan, introduced by a girlfriend who also loves the books. The narrators are good, having to change accents multiple times, and it helps keep the story straight as it weaves around the globe.
    But this is the slowest story of them all, perhaps because its more about Mitch's personal life and less about the more standard terrorist hunt. But it picks up considerably in last half of book and would recommend it as well as the others anyway, taking care to start the series at the beginning and stay in order.

    Thanks, Vince!


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

    He is the best narrator of the Vince Flynn series. Very adept at all types of accents.

    Where does Consent to Kill rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Enjoyed the story, characters and plot. The methods and point of view sometimes make me shudder...but found it very fast-paced and entertaining.

    "Good book with an all too predictable story."

    I enjoyed listening to the book, it is well made, no doubt about it. However I was never taken by surprise or awestruck by the plot "twists". The characters act like their own cliches -- all in all recommendable as easy listening.
