The Last Man: A Novel | [Vince Flynn]

The Last Man: A Novel

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.

Publisher's Summary

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 my normal choice of book but a good surprise!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Man to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read the print but I had a hard time understanding the narrator at some points due to his broken accent.


    What other book might you compare The Last Man to and why?

    None I have read.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No - probably would avoid them. I get why they used him but it was difficult for me as some points.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending.

    "Tense and enjoyable thriller"
    Any additional comments?

    This was the first Vince Flynn book I've read and/or listened to. In the mold of David Baldacci, Lee Child (Jack Reacher) and others, the hero is a tough army type with a sixth sense. If you like mystery, intrigue, revenge, twists, this is the book for you. Although at times the story is a bit far fetched and unbelievable, if you like books to keep your attention and are fast moving, then you won't be disappointing. The narrator is pretty good and conveys the different characters well.

    Story
    "Another great Rapp but a couple of odd segments"
    Where does The Last Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not my favorite Vince Flynn (American Assasin is the best) but very entertaining.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Man?

    The ambush when we find out more about the other Assassin was probably the most memorable portion of the book.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    George Guidall is the voice of Mitch Rapp!


    Any additional comments?

    The portions of the book with Mike and director Kennedy seem forces and awkward and the entire premise of bringing back the french assassin seemed odd and forced because of the end.

    "Awesome Well Worth the Credit"

    Awesome book well worth the credit and time. In this title some very interesting things happen to the main character Mitch Rapp and other important characters (Stan Harley) and some new characters are introduced. Don’t want to say much more than this as not to give the story away, but Mitch Rapp remains the last man you want to mess with.

    There are twists at every turn so really pay attention to know who does what and who is on whose side. The Last Man includes modern day facts regarding the technologies used in the war on terra.

    Like mainly mystery and suspense with a bit of chick lit and non-fiction thrown in. Severe addiction going on 10 years to Audiobooks.

    WOW! Vince Flynn delivered on this one. Great plot! Mitch is locked and ready to kill every terrorist in his sight, and maybe even a few who aren't. Not to give anything away, but something happens to Mitch and it is very interesting to see Mitch in this light...maybe a kinder, more gentle Mitch...Great story from start to finish. I didn't want this one to end.

    Same narrator as the past books in recent years. I just love him. He plays Mitch so well!

    Each Mitch Rapp book gets better and better. I like the way Vince Flynn has changed the story line up by switching between young and old Mitch Rapp. George Guidall brings the story to life. Between the author and the narrator, the time flies by listening to this book. Best one of the series!

    "Captivating story from and great narration."
    What made the experience of listening to The Last Man the most enjoyable?

    The story was off and running immediately and never took much time to rest and was extremely hard to take a break from at times.


    Any additional comments?

    Narration was perfect for the story and the characters. You could almost think that the book was being narrated by the main character.

    I drive a truck. Audible helps the miles go by. I normally look for LONG books. 30 Hrs+. Latest is the North and South Trilogy. (Still waiting for Heaven and Hell)
