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.
If only Mitch Rapp was as good as picking wives as he is doing everything else. Anna is the most awful woman and he just adores her. Guidell is so good at portraying her huffy self-centeredness. The story is very entertaining even though Anna doesn't get hit by a comet as I hoped she would.
After listening to the last 3 I was ready to hear George again. I didn't realize how ready I was. I'm done thinking "I'm sure I can get through it, the performance can't possibly be as bad as these reviews say". Boy was I wrong. I am new to the audible book world, now I'm hooked on them forever largely due to Vince Flynn and my new hero Mitchell Rapp. Gotta be preformed by my man George though. Enjoy the hrs of entertainment, I did and will continue to. On to the next one now!
You probably aren't picking this book up as your first foray into the Mitch Rapp series...If you are a fan of the series to this point, you know that the narration performance makes a big deal, and George Guidall is back! Oh yeah-and Vince Flynn crafts a fantastic story that weaves thrilling action and suspense whole geopolitics. Couldn't put it down… er... take it out of my ears!
I spend many hours on the road and audible is a life saver! And after listening to over 100 books over the past 2 years I've begun to search for new series that will keep me interested. MITCH RAPP is an excellent series. It has great character development and George does an excellent job bringing the folks to life.
Honestly, can't simply pick a favorite part. Mitch Rapp is easily one of my favorite characters of all time. Don't want to give the story away, so I can just say its great.
Absolutely. I love this series
Narrator is perfect for this series. I heard him when I first listened to American Assassin, and he read it perfectly, not too slow, not too fast, and his voice fits perfectly for the male characters, despite him changing voices too much.
listened to this series first from library downloads which were abridged. Do not care for abridged books but that's all available at the library. The narration however in the abridged was superb and certainly makes this one a poor second. Mr. Guidall's voice and interpretation of the characters is great, but his delivery is just irritating after listening to
Armand Schultz. I so like this series that I want to own them all and will just put up with Guidall, bummer!
