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)
I am pleased to have discovered this writer and reader combination. Vince Flynn is a master of the craft. I plan to listen to and enjoy more of his books soon.
as always...i enjoyed the plot...weaving of characters and the leading up to the "next" adventure.
i compare Flynn's adventure to my other fav author Clive Clussler... i often listen to the works of both.
i have really enjoyed the narrator in each book i listen to with him... does a great job of getting the listener "into" the scenes.
An excellent story based on a possible nightmare situation in this country's future. How long before the powers in Washington put a muzzle on Vince and Mitch.
Heck yeah......Vince Flynn has created a series that is refreshing and more realistic than people would like to believe. This is how modern day wars are fought! We no longer line up on large battle fields waiting for the enemy to poke their head out of a hole. The enemy has learned that they must hide in the shadows and or civilian areas and strike, then run! Mitch Rapp is a fictional character that Mr. Flynn has brought to life but in my opinion is what and how we need to proceed with fighting these terrorists. They have no rules, no moralistic restraints! They simply kill in the name of their God in hopes of furthering their agenda of corruption, power, and to strike fear in the innocent. God bless Vince Flynn and his fictional character Mitch Rapp......I hope there are REAL Mitch Rapp's out there kicking rear end and taking names and taking the fight to these rats that are poking sticks at people from the shaddows!!!!
All of the Vince Flynn Mitch Rapp series.....
George Guidall has solidified himself as the voice and personality of Mitch Rapp......He interprets the words and adds emotion perfectly! Why anyone else would attempt to read a Mitch Rapp book would be rediculous.......
I very much enjoyed the parts where the president and his advisors stood up and told the rest of the world that we were going to bring the fight to the enemy...
Excellent series.....Vince Flynn has created an enjoyable series that appeals to everyone at a certain level. His has expanded his character base and creates emotional relationships between those characters and the reader. I have listened/read almost all of the Mitch Rapp books and am looking forward to more.....
Edge of your seat of Rapp's next adventure!
Guidall's narration brings Rapp into a 3-D force. Excellent as always.
As a huge fan of these books, I feel that Congress should leave Gen. Petraus alone! He was just under covers.
You are the sum of what you read!
This is a tight paced and fully fleshed-out story regarding the problem with solving a problem diplomatically. Sometimes you just need a hero like Mitch that will get things done!
The story did not have a dull moment. Sometimes to adequately explain a situation or political atmosphere Flynn's stories have lengthy narratives. Not in Protect and Defend! It's quick paced and an absolutely enjoyable, suspenseful read or listen.
Completely. The story is just well written. The characters are believable and Mitch is always on time!
I am very impressed by Guidall. Both my husband and I enjoy his performances. So much so that I search for books that he narrates. I can eventually learn to enjoy a reader, but my husband cannot. Guidall is our absolute favorite performer.
Nonstop action and intrigue.
The Mitch Rapp series is awesome. I typically purchase them as soon as they are available. I don't know how I missed Protect and Defend. It is definitely a favorite.
Mitch Rapp of course. Director Kennedy is next best.
George Guidall is excellent! He made the book believable.
If I could, I would've listened to this in one sitting.
I had some problems with the sound in part 2, but I re-downloaded and it was fine.
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.
