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)
Mitch Rapp does what each one of us would love to do and say. He is politically incorrect, socially insensitive, and most of all....extremely effective!
This book takes you into what could be the next middle east crisis currently simmering on the back burner. One of the best books I have listened to in 5 years of being an audible subscriber!!
I just wish audible has more unabridged versions of his book, because the true stories lie in the sordid details, and I don't see what you can leave out and still get the full effect of Vince's insight!
Maybe some of our fearless leaders in DC should consider his common sense, no-nonsense approach to solving a problem that no amount of diplomacy seems to be able to do!
Though a fan of V. Flynn and Mitch Rapp, I was disappointed in this one. Flynn seems to skimp on the characters and go on at length about procedural. Although he takes pains to make some of the Arabs "good guys," in fact, the characters all come off as a bit cardboard.
I didn't expect great literature, but there were no surprises here. Didn't care much what happened to any of the characters, and was bored by much of the description.
Flynn does another top flight job of presenting Mitch Rapp, the CIA superhero/antihero. Mitch is likable and despictable at the same time. Lots of tension that makes for a good read. I finished this book the day the NIE report was released that Iran had suspended efforts to build a bomb. That was a minor part of the book so it didn't really affect the story. The plot was interesting and moved quickly and kept the listeners interest.
Flynn did an especially good job of forcing the listener to think about a topic many Americans are struggling with - torture in interrogation. He presented the issue in a way that made clear the ethical, moral, legal and political aspects of interrogation that goes clearly beyond accepted bounds for many.
Well worth the time spent. I will certainly give Vince Flynn a try on his next book.
Usual terrorist suspects, pretty good plot and good narration. Not unlike many of the islamic terrorist type spy thrillers out there. Like the others in general fulfills all of our dreams to do major harm to the islamic types.
If you are a fan of Mitch Rapp.. you are never let down. Great book to listen too... go Mitch Go!!
Just love listing to audiobooks. Some of my favorite authors are Vince Flynn and Brad Thor
This book was one of my favorite books in the Mitch Rapp series. The characters are very well developed from the last book. So if your going to get into this book I might make one comment, you may want to start from the very first book and then work your way to this one.
I have two favorite writers and Vince Flynn is one of the two. I couldn't wait for this segment to come out since I have listened to all of the series in order.
I think all good writers have a point in their writing career when they hit a wall or least a wall they have problems getting over or around. I think Vince Flynn MAY have hit that point with this book. I was somewhat dissappointed in the flow. In his earlier books there was pure story and no extra descriptions of non-plot items. It appeared to me, at least, that he was more flowery on this book than the others. Clancy was like that. Tom Clancy aways had to exceed the number of pages than his previous novel. Story tellers have the ability to keep you on the edge of your seat with pure plot and thrills. Mitch Rapp now has too be a cold, no emotion character due to the story line. I just hope Vince Flynn gets back to his pure story line plot in the next book. Perhaps I was expecting too much. Flynn has made me expect only the best in his books and characters.
This was absolutely the best pairing of an exciting plot and setting with a narrator who does all of the characters with amazing clarity.
The reader is immediately immersed in the book with total abandon and interest!
Most books here are "somewhat" interesting...this
one is a GRABBER!
