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.

    Story
    "Good vs evil, nice & simple"
    What did you love best about Kill Shot?

    Fast-paced story, easy to keep track of characters, good performance.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Vince Flynn always keeps things moving, no dull parts.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    He is a great performer, love his voice for these books.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, it was just entertaining.


    Any additional comments?

    Flynn's characters are simplistic -- black/white -- good/evil -- with no depth. But that's okay and it's what I was expecting.

    Story
    "Enough of the early days"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Well that's hard to answer....... I feel as though Vince has run out of things to write about Mitch. Vince has to reverted to reinventing the early days when Mitch started with the CIA.We have been down this road already.


    Would you recommend Kill Shot to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would recomend it to friends who haven't already been introduced to Mitch Rapp. This way they can start at the beginning of the saga.


    What about George Guidall???s performance did you like?

    I love George Guidall's performance. To me he is the voice of Vince Flynn telling the story. I particularly like the gruffness in his voice. I really lends to the characters he portrays in the book.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Sure.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish Vince would find a new angle to tell the Mitch Rapp story. Or maybe he can come up with another spy for us to fall in love with.

    "A master story teller. Riveting to the end"
    If you could sum up Kill Shot in three words, what would they be?

    Strength, commitment, honor.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Mitch is a wonderful realistic character who will not be manipulated.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His enunciation and emotion in the telling of the story. Well done!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Whats next?

    I always look forward to a Vince Flynn read. Audible is perfect in my car and the excitement with Vince Flynn makes any trip go by quickly.

    "Good second prequal"

    I like the second book in the "where Mitch came from chronicals". Especially enjoyed learning how he became the man he is. Only problem is that I found some inconsistencies with the future story of Mitch.

    Story
    "I liked Kill Shot and it was a very good read"

    In Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp novel, we are taken back to the time shortly after Rapp has been recruited and trained by the CIA as an assassin. Rapp has been spectacularly successful in assassinating members of a terrorist Muslim group who have been responsible for multiple terrorist attacks. When Rapp takes out his next target, a Libyan Oil minister, he discovers a trap has been set for him, and he barely escapes with his life. Rapp is wounded, and the rest of the novel deals with unraveling how Rapp was betrayed. Only a handful of people even know of the "hit" list that was prepared for Rapp, and Rapp begins to suspect that someone in this inner circle sold him out.

    This was a face-paced novel, and as is usual with Vince Flynn, he pulls no punches with his depiction of politicians as duplicitous hypocrites interested only in furthering their careers and lining their pockets. Those who tend toward political correctness would do well to avoid Flynn's novels altogether. His unflattering portrayal of weak-kneed liberals and bureaucrats is continued in Kill Shot, although one of the main protagonists in Kill Shot could best be described as a thuggish Neanderthal who hardly fits the "liberal" mold.

    "The First 3 Chapters Had Me Hooked!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Kill Shot to be better than the print version?

    Since I did not read the book I feel that I cannot comment.

    However, I think reading the book would have had me not wanting to put the hardcopy down.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    For 90% of the book, yes!


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen to Audible while driving so I cannot answer this question.


    Any additional comments?

    I truly enjoyed the manner in which the author wrote the book. I was hooked at the different perspectives written by the main characters. The hook was how the author wrote each viewpoint in one "scene."

    "Great to be back with Rapp"

    I was hesitant to start the American Assassin sub-series thinking that it wouldn't be interesting given everything that's happened to Rapp throughout the years but I was wrong. I've really enjoyed the past two books focusing on the earlier years of Rapp and the story lines kept me interested from beginning to end.

    And let's face it, you can't go wrong with listening to Guidall. He's one of my favorite narrators and his performance makes the experience even better.
