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.

    "Vince's best yet"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Man to be better than the print version?

    Yes, most likely due to Mr. Guidall. However, it was harder to keep track of the Afghanis and Pakistanis without seeing their names in print.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He lives the characters, particularly the Americans in the book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. This is one I didn't want to end.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm so pleased Vince Flynn is in good health, so he can continue writing these extraordinary novels.

    Would you recommend The Last Man to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend The Last Man with reservation. The author describes the characters' weapons in detail. I don't have any weaponry background knowledge so I found this obsession distracting. Others might find that this enhances the listening experience.




    Any additional comments?

    Foreign names and positions are unfamiliar so it would have been helpful to have a written or audible list of characters to refer to while listening.

    Story
    "Classic Rapp with a poignant twist"
    Where does The Last Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is in the top 10% of all the books I have listened to and certainly one of the most engaging. Fast paced, action oriented and hard to put down.


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

    All of the books by Vince Flynn rank high on the "Action-O-matic" meter, and this story doesn't let Flynn junkies down. You get the action fix you are looking for while Rapp navigates the troubled waters of international greed and disceat that you just find plausible enough to believe. A great mix.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    Mitch Rapp is always a hero, and Guidell always comes through with a strong performance of his character. However in this book he had a large list of characters to mix in, and he did so with a consistency that made the story easy to follow.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Die Monster-die!


    Any additional comments?

    As with any great series of books, I can't wait for the next adventure to be released.

    Not much suspense or action in the story. Mitch Rapp's character is too arrogant to like.

    I have downloaded and enjoyed all of Mitch Rapp series, even the ones with the questionable narrators. This one was superb in places but I was disappointed with the plot that I felt was a little thin and VERY predictable at the end. I do hope that Flynn is not losing his touch. I still enjoyed the plot.
