Newly appointed CIA director Dr. Irene Kennedy is the target of an inside plot to destroy her and prematurely end the American President's term. To make matters worse, Saddam Hussein is close to entering the nuclear arms race - something Israel has vowed to stop. With the haunting specter of World War III looming, the president calls on his secret weapon: top counter-terrorism operative Mitch Rapp. But with only two weeks to take out the nukes, Rapp is up against a ticking clock - and impossible odds.
Take another thrill ride with Mitch Rapp.

"First-class political intrigue from a master storyteller." (Booklist)
The narrator, Ken, did such a bad job, he ruined the book. Everybody sounds the same. And they sound bad, really bad. Rather get the paper book and read it yourself.
The three women in Mitch's life are great contrast the schemer, the emotionally supercharged girlfriend, and the deadly ex lover. Really entertaining book ... Never a dull moment try this one even if you don't read the others... If you like adventure you will be happy
I don't write many reviews. Only when a book is particularly spectacular or particularly awful do I take the time. Well, this is one of those times. If I didn't thoroughly enjoy the Mitch Rapp series so much, I would have quit on this one after the first 10 minutes. The narrator is horrendous. Everyone sounds the same. Everyone is shrill. If this guy narrates any others, I'll be skipping them regardless of how much I love Mitch Rapp!
Get the old narrator or a better new one!
At first I was NOT a fan of him for this book. As it went on, it wasn't as bad. He did make Rapp sound like a total jerk but I got over that.
It was interesting that he said Anna's last name as "Riley" ad opposed to "Reely" as the other narrator. I think he got it right!
Great series! If you can get over the changes of narrators you'll be fine. It's very interesting!!
A decent narrator
The story was good as are most Vince Flynn books.
The just has to be the WORST voice I have ever heard on an Audible book. I will make a note to avoid any thing he reads.
The book had merit. The challenge was the narration was a little weak. The plot was run on a emotional and non-tactically balanced. Hope the next one is better.
Justice prevails once again. Good suspense. Some interesting twists and deceit. Looking forward to the next book.
