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.

    "gripping"

    This was very entertaining, hard to stop listening to. No great depth. Good propaganda for Patriot Act fans and those who support the Bush/Cheney doctrine, but if you can put that aside, you'll enjoy the book.

    "A new found author"

    This is my first but certainly not my last Vince Flynn book. He had you hooked from the beginning. He pulls in current events and stories out of the headlines which makes his story all the more real. He does a pretty good job of character development and his story is engrossing.

    "Fell apart at the end"

    Consent to Kill keeps the listener engaged through most of the story. Characters are well developed and engaging. The story suffers from too quick of a conclusion. Over 90% of the narrative is spent on leading up to the central event, and then the resolution of the tale was hurriedly presented. The story would have been more enjoyable if equal time had been spent on the chase as was spent on leading up to the chase.

    "excellent as usual"

    I have read all of Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp books up until this one, and loved them all. His books are the kind you make deals with yourself to stay up longer to read "one more chapter." This was no different. Very exciting to listen to the narration. As usual, the topic is relevant and makes an American wish/hope there is someone out there watching our backs as Mitch does in Mr. Flynn’s books; but Superman does not really exist.

    His portrayal of politicians is so real…sad but true. The few good all mixed in with the magnificent egos. I highly recommend this book, and any of his other books.

    "Outstanding"

    I couldn't "put this down." Mitch Rapp is at his best. The story is intriguing and the characters richly drawn out. The way the CIA is portrayed when taking matters into their own hands for hte sake of national security is not quite politically correct these days but to me this is just a story, exciting in a James Bond style. Pure adventure, on the edge of your seat thrilling, right to the end. Even the main antagonists get under your skin. Don't pass this up if you like spy thrillers.
