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.

Not sure how to answer this question it is not a video
Mitch Rapp at his best
I have never been a big fan of political assassin stories. I find them too predicable. I began reading book 6 of the series only because I had absolutely nothing else to read. My intent was to find something better as soon as I could. About half way through the book I began to notice that the story line was written unlike anything I expected. After finishing book 6, I had to go back and start reading from book 1. I have now read all 13. Mitch Rapp is a paid assassin for the CIA. (I know, just like every other CIA story but don't judge too quickly) He puts duty, honor, and sacrifice above his own self interest. Values that are not often found in D.C. Rapp specializes in going after extreme terrorists and those that protect and aide them, whether home or abroad. He then sets out eliminating them. if you are like me and feel that far too many of todays politicians are self-serving, and do only what is popular to get themselves reelected I would encourage you to check this series out. If you also enjoy seeing wrongs righted and the guilty paying for their crimes, then by all means read these books.
Its high on the list, I have just finished the entire Mitch Rapp series, and have enjoyed them all
The story raps up nicely in each book
Guidall is a consumate performer who can perform multiple accents flawlessly. He is my favorite reader.
Do not miss this one.
This is classic Flynn. It has everything. And Rapp is at his best. Although it is not as good as some of his other works. Last Man is still a great book. I have listened to all of the Rapp novels multiple time and can't get enough of them. Mitch Rapp is the man that we hope hope is really out there.
Always so sad to think Vince Flynn is no longer with us. But i loved this book. I just read it again to prepare for The Survivor. I am so excited for that and i am happy Flynn's work will continue. Back to this book. Classic Rapp. Great story with all the little twists you would expect. Great dialogue and characters as always. These books always leave me wanting more and this one is no exception. I highly recommend it.
I am a registered nurse and a father of four great kids. I live in a rural part of Oregon and love it. I enjoy books, but Sci-Fi Fantasy has allows been the ones I reach for more than others.
Yes, the book was a good ending point for the Mitch Rapp series since Vince has died since this book was published. Don't get me wrong I would loved to have more books in this series but I'm not sure if another author could come in and pick up the series and characters as well as Vince Flynn did.
As I have said with many of books in this series is just as enjoyable and action packed as Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan series or Brad Thor's Scot Harvath series. Any person who has enjoyed either of these series will enjoy and get addicted to Flynn's Rapp character and his no nonsense approach to how the war on terror should be fought.
Rapp-Guidall just makes him come alive. I can see his facial features and mannerisms when he is pissed off or just trying to push through all the red tape the government when it comes to getting to the truth. His attitude comes across very well by the way Guidall is able to voice the narrative. Looking forward to listening to Guidall read other authors in the future
Rest in Peace Mr. Flynn.
Typical Mitch Rapp but good ending book.
Mitch getting badly injured with major concussion but coming back to himself.
