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.

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.
High as I do like the author
As stated I do like all of the Mitch Rapp series
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.
Extremely well written with many twists and turns in plot-not easy to guess as to the direction to be taken.
Yes -all of Vince Flynn's
Typical Mith Rapp with a little twist.
I was interested in the characters and i think there is more to come....
a great voice
Great narrator and gripping story.
Mitch Rapp of course is the best character but the author creates very interesting characters, so they are all important. I even enjoyed the villians!
Narrator is one of the best in the industry. I liked how he was able to give characters different voices and even all the different accents were very believeable.
I read one of Vince Flynn's first books and was not that impressed. It reminded me of a run-of-the-mill action movie where you could see everything coming with your typical plot and could predict how every scene would turn out.
This book was surprisingly good. The story line kept my attention and were enough twist's and turns in the plot to make the story very interesting.
