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.

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
I have read or listened to every single Mitch Rapp book and I love them all, some more than others. I would put this one on the love scale above average but not at the top. The only thing is I don't believe the person reading the story has the appropriate age sounding voice for the characters. It is distracting and takes away from the story and characters.
This book wasn't the best in the series. However all of these books went down like water. I can't get enough of them. I wish there were more. Thank you for the 13 we got!
