The Last Man: A Novel | [Vince Flynn]

The Last Man: A Novel

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.

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
    "easy listening, entertaining"
    What made the experience of listening to The Last Man the most enjoyable?

    The intrigue of the story made it easy to keep on listening.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrator is my favorite reader.


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

    George Guidall brings inflection, intonnation, and a kind of music, perhaps a symphony, to the books he reads. He is serious without drama, suspenseful without theatrics, and heartwarming without syrup.


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

    I had no extreme reaction.


    Any additional comments?

    Easy listening. Entertaining.

    Story
    "A great story, explains what is torture."
    If you could sum up The Last Man in three words, what would they be?

    Afghanistan, torture, brave


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rapp, he is determined, smart, and fearless.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    A great narrator.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I couldn't get into sleep after I read the part how Rickman was tortured and was hit in the groin area because he was telling lies.


    Any additional comments?

    First time for me to get an insight on what happened in Afghanistan, what Americans are suffering in that area. Informative.

    Would you listen to The Last Man again? Why?

    Overall, a very good book. The ending was abrupt and actually didn't seem like an ending.


    If you’ve listened to books by Vince Flynn before, how does this one compare?

    This is not as good as the other Vince Flynn I've read.


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

    George Guidall is very good as always.

    Story
    "Great Additions To Vince Flynn Novels"
    Would you listen to The Last Man again? Why?

    I wouldn't have bought this audio book if I didn't expect to enjoy it and listen to it again and again. Much to my surprise, it delivered beyond my expectations and I was pleasently surprised by this short story by Vince Flynn. While not as long as most of his past books, it was more than we could expect given his battle with cancer over the last year or so. It was an enjoyable listen with a good story line that draws you in and won't let you out until the final word is spoken; leaving you wanting yet another chapter.

    More more more.. just one more page before bed wicked fun to read and listen too.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Make it longer.


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

    All of them. He is a great narrator.


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

    I had to break it up into parts as time allowed but if I could I would listen to it all in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Great author, great series. I cannot wait for new material.

    "Another winner from Vince Flynn"
    What made the experience of listening to The Last Man the most enjoyable?

    I was looking forward to the next book in the series since I finished the previous book. I pre-ordered as soon as I saw it available and got it the day it came out.
    I like that the references to previous history of the character reminded me of the previous books and it made this book more enjoyable for me.


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

    Too many come to mind.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    The familiarity of the reader - it would not be the same story with him.
