Number-one New York Times best-selling author Vince Flynn - “the best pure adrenaline-charged action writer out there today” (The Providence Journal) - puts Mitch Rapp in the crossfire as America’s enemies tighten their grip.
Returning from a covert mission, Mitch Rapp was publicly hailed by the president for his role in the fight against terrorism. After years of working in the shadows, Rapp was caught in the media spotlight - and marked for death by virtually every terrorist in the world. Now a CIA advisor, Rapp is ready to battle terror far from the front lines.
But when a Navy SEAL team in the Philippines is ambushed, all evidence points to a leak within the U.S. State Department. And a greater threat lurks - a ruthless assassin working for the most powerful men in the Middle East, who are bent on igniting a world war. With the world watching, Rapp must hold back the flames of Armageddon....
Take another thrill ride with Mitch Rapp.

"A fast-paced spy thriller." (People)
Flynn's earlier books are not nearly as good as his later ones and this is a perfect example. The plot was a little weak and basically split between two unrelated story lines. The narration was just as good as the later books. George Guidall does an outstanding job.
suspenseful with good detail and realistic characters. Flynn has a keen sense of the difference between politicians and spin doctors and the people who must deal with the real world situations.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
Someone or some country is not telling the truth about events happening in Washington DC.
Who can be believed? The Israelis, the USA's best and most loyal operatives? Are they acting in a trustworthy way? Not really.
Now it is time to find out what the assassin "David" is up to next. Mitch Rapp [a black ops assassin] onto the case. Rapp takes a few flights overseas to see if he can find the mole and/or do away with him.
Once again, former CIA operative most be trusted, even though or especially since he is taking out some of the most notorious terrorists. Will he succeed this time?
Notes: Strong language & descriptions of violence
This would be rated R on the film scale
Stars: five stars across the board.
Vince Flynn was the master of writing, the counter-terrorism, thriller. I've yet to find an author that even comes close.

very well read by George! I am so happy that that last guy is no longer reading these books, thank you very much!!! thank you Bennett for a wonderful story! I look forward to more!
This is a series that I am working my way through, although initially not in the correct order, that I can always rely on for an enjoyable listen. This book was no exception. A good listen that kept me interested through out. Yes the books follow a formula but it is a formula that works for me. Although sometimes I wish there was more variety to the endings.
Superb story & narration
Flynn's Mitch Rapp series is head and shoulders above everything else in this genre.
Guidall is among the top 3 best narrators in the business.
As with all the other in the Rapp series yes.
If you haven't for some reason listened to this series, please start from the beginning. This is the second time I've listened to this series from beginning to the most recent release. Never disappointed especially after Guidall comes on-board.
All his novels seems same plot. All the villains are Muslim fundamentalists. I guess that is the easiest story to write and sell in the current scenario. Also Ralf being so "famous", I doubt how come no other hit man kills him? In reality if he become so famous, I think he is a dead man.
Avid listener...100+ per year for many years. Very few reviews seems I only say something when I am disappointed or elated!
Narrator is fantastic....makes all the difference.
Tone, characterizations, and understanding of the story. He brings it to life!
