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.

    Like the story, but too many swear words. try thinking up more sophisticated expletives, instead of resorting to the vulgar four letter types.

    "Another Outstanding book by Vince Flynn"
    Where does Kill Shot rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Matt Rapp series is one of the best CIA story lines. Once you read the first book you are hooked.

    "Good character development"

    A good follow up on the introduction of Mitch Rapp but rather more focus on his external exploits compared to this somewhat predictable plot.

    "Fantastic!!!"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    It had everything action, mystery, humor, intrege, sex, and violence


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    By being so well written


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    He ties in a lot of factual history into his story and his grasp of the Geopolitcal spectrum is unmatched!


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Nothing Guidall is phenomenal


    Do you have any additional comments?

    Vince Flynn is Amazing I celebrate the mans entire catalog! American Assasin would seem to be impossible to top, but he at least matched it. Rapp is badder than "Downtown Lee Roy Brown"!!!!

    "Not Disappointing!"
    What made the experience of listening to Kill Shot the most enjoyable?

    I felt I could think right along with the characters, and say things out loud if needed. I liked that I could listen in the car while I was driving, and also at home in the house while I was cleaning.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Always, Mitch Rapp.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked when the police (Francine) first came on the scene, and were trying to recreate what actually happened in the hotel. Of course, the mini love scene with Mitch and Greta was cute, too.


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

    What if the tables turned, and you might be the next kill shot?


    Any additional comments?

    can't get enough of Mitch Rapp!!

    "Mitch Rapp - survives against all odds"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Kill Shot to be better than the print version?

    Audio books read by George Guidall are outstanding. The best reader I have ever heard in audio. I'll buy anything read by this man. He has the unique characteristic of making the book come alive and not just read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mitch Rapp is one cool agent under direct enemy fire. How he survives in this book is a real page turner.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    THe hotel room where Mitch is under fire from a dozen or so heavily armed men who want to destroy his life in less than a minute.

    What did you love best about Kill Shot?

    interesting story. Just complicated enough


    Would you be willing to try another book from Vince Flynn? Why or why not?

    No. This kind of book is just not for me. It was a bit boring. Hit man out on his own not trusting anybody.

    I would say this for entire Mitch Rapp series. The combination of Vince Flynn's writing and George Guidall's narration is hard to beat. Brilliant story telling.

    "My first Mitch Rapp but not my last"
    Would you listen to Kill Shot again? Why?

    I'd read this again; it's a great story and since this was my first read of a Mitch Rapp series, I've decided to go through a few more of the series.


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

    George did a great job as the raspy voice of the guy that despised Mitch but finally came around at the end; believed his name was Stansfield.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The descriptive ways Mitch approached each encounter with the enemy.

    "Once again very poor narration"
    Would you try another book written by Vince Flynn or narrated by George Guidall?

    Yes, book good narration poor


    What other book might you compare Kill Shot to, and why?

    Most from the genre: leather, Robotham, Ryan, Baldaccie etc. - fast, pacey etc


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

    Yes, but probably only to confirm my dislike for his performance!


    Was Kill Shot worth the listening time?

    Yes, it was great to listen to whilst doing the gardening


    Any additional comments?

    This narrator completely spoiled what could have been a good book. He emphasised the wrong words in sentences, took breaths in the middle of sentences and didn't even bother to try different voices for the characters. Overall he was appalling.

    "Great book, third time of listening!"

    I enjoy the Rapp series, everyone loves a hero...especially when they are not totally invincible. The performance for me was just about perfect, the characters came to life but I such a way I could allow my mind to form its own pictures- unlike other performers who have such strong accents for characters that you can't see them as you wish.

    "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.
