#1 New York Times best-selling author Vince Flynn is back with another nail-biting political thriller that follows the young Mitch Rapp on a deadly mission to hunt down the men responsible for the Pan Am Lockerbie terrorist attack.
For months, Mitch Rapp has been steadily working his way through a list of men, bullet by bullet. With each kill, the tangled network of monsters responsible for the slaughter of 270 civilians becomes increasingly clear. He is given his next target: a plump Libyan diplomat who is prone to drink and is currently in Paris without a single bodyguard.
Rapp finds him completely unprotected and asleep in his bed. With confidence in his well-honed skills and conviction of the man’s guilt, he easily sends a bullet into the man’s skull. But in the split second it takes the bullet to leave the silenced pistol, everything changes. The door to the hotel room is kicked open and gunfire erupts all around Rapp. In an instant the hunter has become the hunted. Rapp is left wounded and must flee for his life.
The next morning, the news breaks in Washington that Libya’s Oil Minister has been killed along with three innocent civilians and four unidentified men. The French authorities are certain that the gunman is wounded and on the loose in Paris. As the finger pointing begins, Rapp’s handlers have only one choice - deny any responsibility for the incident and pray that their newest secret weapon stays that way, avoiding capture and dying quietly. One person in the group, however, is not prone to leaving things to chance. Rapp has become a liability, and he absolutely cannot be allowed to be taken alive by the French authorities. But it will soon become clear that nothing is more dangerous than a wounded and cornered Mitch Rapp.

Put it in the right sequence with the rest of his books
pleasant, good inflections
Short compared to the rest of his books and out of sequence but if you read all the others you certainly knew some of the charcters
I couldn't recommend the abridged version because of the weak narration; charactervoices are sometimes indistinguishable and his French accent is nonexistent.
Yes. Great story lines and strong protagonist.
Not this version...couldn't make it past 16 chapters; it was painful. I'll try the unabridged version.
I think reviews of listeners is important for prospective buyers; I know it is for me.
Flynn has an incredible way of describing action scenes and character traits and flaws. It's easy listening and story telling at it's best.
Do I want to give the book away? The scene in the Paris Hotel room was great. Wasn't quite sure where that was going but in the end I like the way they closed the loop
He uses his voice subtly for character destinction. It makes it easier to follow especially with a lot of quick moving dialog.
Trust is a dangerous thing.
While these may not be as complicated as some of the other Flynn books out there, it's a great listen with fast paced action, psychological development and just enough technical speak as to not muddy the water.
Yes. Well written and catches you from the beginning.
YES. EXCELLENT WAY HE DOES VOICES.
WHEN RAPP CAUGHT UP WITH VICTOR AND REALLY GOT HIM TO CONFESS.
Not another Vince Flynn!
The narrator was flat, unimaginative and forced. Character voices simply were not the slightest bit believable.
The story was weak and formulaic and not imaginitive. Expressions and descriptions were trite at times.
