Kill Shot: An American Assassin Thriller | [Vince Flynn]

Kill Shot: An American Assassin Thriller

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.

Publisher's Summary

#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.

    "BY FAR the best book series to exist"
    If you could sum up Kill Shot in three words, what would they be?

    I want more!!!


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

    All of them. George Guidall is the true grandmaster of book narration. No one does it better than him.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm an avid audio book listener. I listen to all kinds of books from many different categories. Nothing beats Flynn's books - they are simply the best you can find. I cannot recommend it enough.

    "Love that Rapp"

    I have yet to be disappointed by Vince Flynn and his Mitch Rapp series. This one is up to par. I hope the author is on the mend. His health has had his fans worried.

    "Best One Yet!"

    Mitch Rapp is in his best form. From the first opening salvo the story takes off and its a wild ride from start to finish. Rapp is in his best form ever, the story flows fast and cold and deep. This is some of the cleanest writing that Vince Flynn has put to paper! You quickly are sucked in to this tale and away you go. Action from the very beginning and a very satisfying ending. Maybe the best Mitch Rapp story yet!! I put down Locked On, Tom Clancy's new novel to move Kill Shot to the top of the list and boy was it a great listen. I finished Kill Shot last night and returned to Locked On this morning for my morning workout and it just wasn't doing it for me. Vince, you've outdone yourself on this one. It was worth the wait!

    "Skip this one!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Even if you have liked the other Mitch Rapp books, you'll be hard pressed to like this one.
    Once you are past the first big action scene, you have to wait for 8 hours for anything new to happen. Unnecessary history of characters that you won't meet again, a schlog of information that doesn't apply to the plot, restatements, and restatements of how much all the minor characters hate the invincible Rapp. This is an absolutely


    Would you ever listen to anything by Vince Flynn again?

    I'm pretty sure I'm through with Vince Flynn.


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

    I have loved George Guidall's performances in the past. In the correct venues, he is wonderful. He was perfect for the Mitford Series. He was outstanding in all of Tony Hillerman's books. But, good old George is LOST with these French accents! Any time he is out of the good old U S of A, he is out of his depth. I'll listen to him again, but will be careful about the book choice.

    "The sorriest book I've ever purchased!!!!"

    I'm not sure what description would fit best is somewhere between bad story or no story atoll. Very boring, very un-capitalists just a bad book in general.

    "formula"

    Goerge Guidall - like a comfortable old pair of slippers, takes us through some more 'textbook' Mitch Rapp. Not as gripping as some earlier books (actually later in timeframe) and the ending is a bit odd. I'll post no spoiler here, but it seemed tacked on for want of getting rid of it to the publisher... Come on Vince, you can do better.
