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.

No. It is like a circus I enjoyed it but once is enough.
Lots of action.
Too much that was unbelievable.
The Author has increadable sense of timing. each book has complemented the previous. The characters are usually flawless although Mike Nash was a littleout of sync. but that is nit-picking. the book was outstanding! I hope I am reading Vince Flynn's work for decades to come.
To your Health Vince Flynn, I hope and pray for you and your family only the best.
As do all of Vince's books
He has become the voice of this series. He lends personality and life to each and every character. I identify these voises with the books. Anyone else would change who these characters are
Though it was tough to actually sit and listen to the story, knowing that it either true or based on one such incident or even a general description based on many (rather general) story and their gory details.
Since I am only half way through I already have enough knowledge and experience to know the scope and possible killings (etc), double crosses and such - I know what to expect and will not be surprised at any variations on a theme.
Very well performed.
Definitely. Extreme might be a understatement. Reality is often eye opening and stomach wrenching.
Don't be surprised if this become a movie. I would venture to say that the chances are QUITE strong that it will either be on the big screen or on TV. Most likely "Big Screen" material in my humble opinion.
I don't know who would enjoy this . I think most Vince Flynn fans are going to be disappointed
I probably will give the next one a listen, but thats only because I have enjoyed his earlier books
The was way to much Kennedy and not enough mitch Rapp
I would have a tough time finding any redeeming qualities about the book
I loved this story and the character who is new to me. I would've given it 5 stars if not for all the swearing in the story. The narrator did well with it.
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.
He lives the characters, particularly the Americans in the book.
No. This is one I didn't want to end.
I'm so pleased Vince Flynn is in good health, so he can continue writing these extraordinary novels.
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.
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.
No, I now know the plot and the ending
Every chapter left you on the edge of your seat
He becomes many of the characters to the listener
Corruption, deceit, revenge, and murder lead down the road to justice
A great listen
That I had to wait a year to get the next Mitch Rapp Story
I enjoy his books so much I have never been able to choose just one.
YES..I have been listening to George for the last fifteen years and know I will get a geat read.
I hate having to wait a year for the next book
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.
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.
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.
As with any great series of books, I can't wait for the next adventure to be released.
