The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.
At first glance it looks as if Rickman has been kidnapped, but Rapp knows certain things about his old friend that cause him to wonder if something more disturbing isn’t afoot. Irene Kennedy, the director of the CIA, has ordered Rapp to find Rickman at all costs. Rapp must navigate the ever-shifting landscape of Afghanistan as the Taliban, Iranians, Pakistanis and Russians all plot to claim their piece of the war torn state.
With Afghanistan crumbling around him, Rapp must be as ruthless as his enemies and as deceitful as people in his own government if he has any hopes of completing his mission.

I have the other 12 books of the Mitch Rapp series and found all the story lines excellent spy thrillers. George Guidall reading performance helped keep me engaged. Vince Flynn was a great writer. I hope to see the Mitch Rapp series made into a TV or movie series.
I have enjoyed every Vince Flynn novel and I was saddened to hear of his passing.
This is a good (maybe not great) end of the Mitch Rapp series. The suspense was lacking at the end that has been present in other titles.
I am a big fan though and I loved this book. Thanks Vince for all the great novels, RIP.
Up there with all of the other Mitch Rapp books - my favorite series.
All of it.
George Guidall is Mitch Rapp's voice. They could not have used another narrator at this point.
As usual, yes.
The Mitch Rapp series was/is my favorite book series hands down. So sad that the author passed away - too young. Too much talent lost too soon. Listen to all of these books if you want a good series. Just know you will probably be bummed when you get through this one and know there will be no more.
this one had a hard time keeping my attention.
story was, to me, OK at best and the narration seemed to run from one sentence to another for hours. it was difficult to tell what character was speaking or when there was even a scene change.
Is My Hero, Mitch Rapp. Even injured, he is still head and shoulders above the next best. I'm sorry we lost Vince Flynn's voice. He leaves big, big shoes to fill. He knew what he knew and there is no one else who knows the same. I will read the next book, but . . .
I have listened to these books repeatedly. While I enjoy some of the other series, it's this series, and more often than not, this book, that I choose to revisit. And I am surprised each hearing brings something new that I have missed.
I must add that I really like George Guidel's performances. I have heard h perform other author's work and he always adds to my enjoyment. 5 Stars
