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.

    Story
    "Predictable plot; narrator good"
    What did you like best about Kill Shot? What did you like least?

    Liked the premise of the story line, however, the foreshadowing was so clear, there wasn't much suspense. You just had to listen and let it unveil.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Character development was good, albeit a bit too lengthy at times.


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

    not sure.


    Could you see Kill Shot being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No. it was a bit like the Bourne trilogy movies, but this was not as exciting or sophisticated.

    Story
    "It was a good listen!"
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, I couldn't guess what was going to happen next.


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

    He brought the characters to life, and made the story exciting. I listened to this during a 4 hour bus ride, and I was not bored. In fact, when people called me on the telephone, I was annoyed because I had to put my IPod on pause!


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

    The confrontation between Mitch Rapp and Victor in the interrogation room.

    Story
    "This was a great story."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    You would want to read this for the realism. The way the characters react is exactly what I have seen in the real world. Good insight.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mitch Rapp


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

    His voice and inflection create the images in your mind like you were watching a movie.


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

    I couldn't stop listening. I usually listen while driving, but I had to bring my iPod with me so I could finish listening to the story.

    "Disappointing Story Line"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the author had improved the story line. Too much time spent on recreating the background on each character. I have read all prior books in the series and this one simply dragged.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Vince Flynn again?

    Yes, because I know he has the ability to write a good story.


    What three words best describe George Guidall???s voice?

    Difficult to understand at times


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, it moved Rapp's story onward

    "Mitch Rapp - I've been hooked since the first book"

    I've read all but the last Flynn and I can go back, listen and enjoy all over again. George Guidall is perfect for the Mitch Rapp character as far as I'm concerned. I hope Flynn continues with the series.

    I am a person that tries and get through 1 book a week if possible. I am Dyslexic so this is really the only way I can get through a book. I have listened to more book in a year than I read my first 20 years of my life. I found the joy of audio books in the early 2000 and have been a audible customer since 2000 or 2001. I have over 490 books in 2 different accounts and listened to 90%.

    For nearly a week, I was looking forward to my next drive in the car, so I could listen to what happened next. Captivating story; satisfying ending.

    "Great "read" and wonderful narrator."

    Great book, outstanding narrator. Great 'road trip' listen with hubby - miles just fly by. Over river & thru woods trip to visit parents seemed to take half the time. Kill Shot is well written, filled with intrigue, and kept us interested for hours (round trip). We now want to "read" American Sniper and experience a real story.

    Story
    "A bit disappointing"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Too much character development for people who do not matter to other books in the series. All that dialogue made the book boring in some parts.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting was probably the action scenes. The least interesting was the storyline surrounding the French detective.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Rapp in the hotel room and his getaway.


    Could you see Kill Shot being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes. Kiefer Sutherland, Vin Diesel

    "Great"
    If you could sum up Kill Shot in three words, what would they be?

    Makes you think


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kill Shot?

    When Mitch Rap finally got to interrogate Victor


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    Everything.


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

    Neither, however I was left wondering about the next book in the series.


    Any additional comments?

    George Guidall can read for me anytime. I just listened to Stephen King (who I find to be disturbing) and Mr. Guidall makes me overlook any negatives.
