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)
The plot scenario could be played out right on the front page of our daily newspapers.
This pulled me in deeper than I would normally have gone, to the story.
I find myself listening and reading more about the Iranian situation after listening to this ominous story. Having a son on active duty in the military makes it more so.
This was my first Vince Flynn book, but certainly will not be my last. I found myself sittng in the parking lot or driveway just to finish a chapter.
The narrator did a great job with voices and emotion.
Entertaining as any of his other works; if you are a fan of his earlier works, you must read this one as well
This book must have been a left over from another project. Mr. Flynn has omitted his usual character description or context setting. The story is completely linear and only one thing really happened in the entire story. If "fast pasted" is a code word for shallow and simple, this book is really, really fast pasted. The great narration helps to make the audible book enjoyable but it does not compensate for the poor writing.
excellent narration and gripping tale. chapter by
chapter left me interested in how the plot would be woven out. very easy to listen to and kept bringing me back to my ipod.
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.
