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.

    Story
    "Never disappointing..Ever!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Last Man the most enjoyable?

    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.
    Thank you


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    As do all of Vince's books


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

    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


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

    Yes

    Story
    "A story of the realities of war."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


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

    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.


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

    Very well performed.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Definitely. Extreme might be a understatement. Reality is often eye opening and stomach wrenching.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Dissapointed"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't know who would enjoy this . I think most Vince Flynn fans are going to be disappointed


    Would you ever listen to anything by Vince Flynn again?

    I probably will give the next one a listen, but thats only because I have enjoyed his earlier books


    How could the performance have been better?

    The was way to much Kennedy and not enough mitch Rapp


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    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.

    "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.

    "Select Audience"
    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.
