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.

Yes - absolutely
It's a tie between Irene Kennedy and Mitch Rapp. Both were fascinating in how they handled stressful situations and the political back-stabbing.
Same as above.
Gripping from scene 1.
Would recommend to any friend.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
ALWAYS-Mitch Rapp-he is a hero!
Rapp 'toying' with the doctors after suffering a head injury AND when he delivers the title line, "I AM the last man..."
Packed full of adventure and action. The story line is simple yet complex at the same time. I'd have given higher stars perhaps I'm a bit overloaded with this genre.
Note: Strong language
George Guidall is an excellent narrator, second to none, in my book.
As always, you can't wait to continue to hear (or read) the story. You just have to know what happens next... and then its finished and you can't wait to get your hands on the next one.
Yes I would and have to many people, because they are so well written and up to date with the current events in the world today. That's why I find them so interesting, fiction yes I know. But you can't help thinking that he is so close to the truth that it could almost be fact..
His plots tend to do that all the time. With the Last Man it kept me going right up to when they took Rickmans body down and washed it.
This is the first time I have listened to George Guidall and I found him to be a very clear and precise narrator and exciting to listen to.
I have read all Vince Flynns books and cannot wait for the next one. I will be buying all his books on audio because although I have read them, the audio version adds another exciting element to the book and helps fill in parts that I may have missed and with the job that I do it affords me the opportunity to listen to at least ten hours of audio per day which is a big bonus.
Fast paced and engaging.
You never know what's around the next corner, could be someone trying to kill Rapp, or car chase.
I laughed a lot, lots of clever comments throughout, especially if you've read the rest of the Mitch Rapp books.
If you like the Mitch Rapp series this is another great one! Vince Flynn just keeps you on the edge of your seat. Great Narration, Great Story, None Stop Action!
You won't be disappointed.
Right in the middle.
Sort of. I kept listening, but didn't sit in the car and listen after arriving at my destination like I do for some books.
The vet's office
As a commuter, I like books that pass the time between home and work and back. This certainly did that; I never got bored or disinterested.
Have 300 other books in different accounts.
No, but that is only because I never listen to a book twice.
All of it, just having Rapp back is awesome.
Flynn is one of the best and so is Guidall.
Don't know; I only listened to it -- the reader is fantastic and I enjoy the audio version tremendously.
Oh yes -- it surpassed all earlier "Mitch Rap" books!
Don't want to give it away.
The earlier books in this series were fantastic, well written, and kept me wanting to drive & drive to keep listening. However, THE LAST MAN surpassed all of the earlier "Mitch Rapp" books. HIGHLY recommend the entire series; don't cheat... start with the first (chronologically) in the series.... you will not regret your decision to start reading / listening to this series - its phenomenal.
The best one yet.
I've listened to them all via Audible up to this one and loved, or at least enjoyed, them all. So that's saying something
"Flynn's last Book Doesn't Disappoint"
The last Man was a book that I didn't want to read/listen to. Not because I thought it was bad, but because I knew that it was the last full book written by Vince Flynn, and in a way I wanted to save it or keep it for some time in the future. Of course there isn't an author out there that would want you to not read or listen to their book, and so I started, and finished it.
I have to say, I think that this was one of the best books in the Mitch Rapp series. I found the storyline to be captivating, with Rapp coming up against a man who's genius is unrivaled in "the company". Joe Rickman, who has stolen, or gathered, the most sensitive of information, that threatens to bring the CIA to it's knees, has come up with a plan for just about every eventuality, going to extreme lengths to fool all around him. What he hasn't planned for, or better to say, what he couldn't plan for, was Mitch Rapp coming after him, with everything he has. This leads to a page turner that will keep you reading/listening from beginning to end.
George Guidall, as always does a great job at bringing the characters to life. I love to hear audiobooks read by him.
I'm happy that this book turned out so well, and I hope that the Mitch Rapp series continues long in to the future.
"Another fast moving and realistic thriller"
Always a gripping thriller writer and true to life in the modern world.
Vince Flynn has a compelling style and this book is a good addition to his library.
"Another book you won't won't want to put down."
It is a pity that Vince Flynn lost his life at such an early age. To think of the best novels he could yet write we will miss those brilliant stories and the out hero Mitch Rapp.
"Rapp @ his best!"
Great story, fabulous narration and as always a ripping good yarn!! Good to see a vulnerable side to Rapp.
"another average Mitch book"
I have read or listened to all Vince Flynn books, this is below average, same old formula, read it all before, come on Vince you last 2 books were brilliant.
