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.

Didn't read the print but I had a hard time understanding the narrator at some points due to his broken accent.
None I have read.
No - probably would avoid them. I get why they used him but it was difficult for me as some points.
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.
Not my favorite Vince Flynn (American Assasin is the best) but very entertaining.
The ambush when we find out more about the other Assassin was probably the most memorable portion of the book.
George Guidall is the voice of Mitch Rapp!
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 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!
The way Mitch Rapp was portrayed.
The way it played out
The gun fight at the vet
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!
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.
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)
I'll ALWAYS recommend anything by Vince Flynn!! He's remarkable in his writing and his grasp of current conflicts within governmental agencies!
Good plot. Well drawn characters. The story moves along pretty quickly and kept me engaged.
