Enter Mitch Rapp, America's top counterterrorism operative. Rapp convinces President Josh Alexander to sign off on a risky operation that will push Iran to the brink of revolution. But when Iran recruits Hezbollah master terrorist Imad Mukhtar, and a CIA effort goes disastrously wrong, Rapp and Mukhtar are set on a collision course that threatens to engulf the entire region in war. With the clock ticking, Rapp is given 24 hours, no questions asked, to do whatever it takes to stop Mukhtar, and avert an unthinkable catastrophe.

"Flynn didn't invent the post-9/11 thriller, but he might as well have....[He] is the best pure adrenaline-charged action writer out there today." (Providence Journal)
As with all his books, this one keeps your attention and leaves you sitting in the driveway wanting to keep on listening.
Mitch Rapp, he finds a way to become an alter ego.
Yes, He's enjoyable to listen to and makes the book all the better as a result.
Better than average, probably a solid 7.5 out of 10.
Mitch Rapp of course.
Listened to American Assassin first. Loved it. Next was Transfer of Power and you wouldn't know it was the same author. Narrator was probably to blame for much but the story dragged along and the dialogue was often lame. Narrator has limited vocal range so many characters have very unreal and annoying voices, unless you like Thurston Howell III. My wife completely agreed. Then listened to this book and it was excellent. Fast paced, very interesting story and well performed. Well worth the time and expense.
The audio edition is very good.
The torture moment
a bit to intense in parts to listen to all in one.
Like I said above a classic vince flynn...I would really reccomend it to all lovers of the genre.
These books should never be read by anyone other than George Guidall. He makes these stories and the characters come to life. Mitch Rapp is so much more than a hero...he is invincible, conscientous, honorable, and ruthless with his enemies. A very fun book to listen to while taking road trips. Engaging.
Loved the reader!
This installment's storyline rates a C+ compared to the previous books. Could have been much better. Superficial character development. Reminded me of empty calories.
The scenes involving the Iranian Minister of Information.
Have come to expect more from Vince Flynn. Hopefully the next book will be better than this one.
Mitch Rapp is an awesome lead character. I don't think I'll ever get enough of this guy. This novel was full of intense action and drama. It was just great!
Love all of Flynn's novels. Thoroughly entertaining with excellent narration. Wishing Vince Flynn a speedy recovery so that his writing will continue.
Purchased this book a while ago, but just listened to it this past week. It is one the best thriller / action audiobooks I have heard out of over 500 books since 1998. Although fiction, it is a gripping story and very pertinent to our times.
For me, this is by far the best book in the Mitch Rapp series. Well written, and packed with suspense and excitement. Excellent in all regards and beautifully narrated by Mitch Rapp himself.........that is .....George Guidall.
I am totally addicted to Vince Flynn's creation of badass, counter-intelligence officer and terrorist assassin - Mitch Rapp. I was truly left wanting more after listening to this Audible download. I wonder how long I will have to wait for the unabridged, Audible version of Extreme Measures, Pursuit of Honor and American Assassin?! Hopefully, they will all be narrated by George Guidall - he's such an exceptional narrator! Even though all of Vince Flynn's novels stand alone well, I prefer to read/listen to them in order, so I provided a list of Vince Flynn's books with their publishing dates for your convenience;
Term Limits (1997) - Transfer of Power (1999) - The Third Option (2000)
Separation of Power (2001) - Executive Power (2002) - Memorial Day (2004)
Consent to Kill (2005) - Act of Treason (2006) - Protect and Defend (2007)
Extreme Measures (2008) - Pursuit of Honor (2009) - American Assassin (2010)
