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.

    A typical Mitch Rapp story. Not as exciting as some of his biiks


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    He has done most of the Nitch Rapp books so his voice is what you nexpect. He switches characaters pretty well

    No, not really

    "Type of book you did not want to see end."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, and without hesitation.


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

    Typical for a Vince Flynn novel. Most of his books are a great read.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    His first encounter with the civilians in a meeting in country.


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

    The whole bbok was entertaining. I thought the very end of the book could have been a little stronger.

    "Mitch Rapp is back in classic form! Great story!"
    Would you listen to The Last Man again? Why?

    Yes. Can't get enough of Mitch Rapp. Always listen a second time to pickup the details I missed the first time through.


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

    Yes. The situation looks hopeless between the foreign terrorists trying to destroy us and the liberals in Washington getting in the way of the people trying to protect us but Mitch Rapp prevails once more with a vingence.


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

    Great as always. Definitely my favorite narrator.

    "Another great Mitch Rapp saga"

    I have read all the Mitch Rapp books and this one did not disappoint. Another great story from Vince Flynn and another great performance by George Guidall. If you like action, trauma and intrigue you will love this book. I highly recommend the whole series.

    "Not the best"

    Regrettably, the latest Vince Flynn effort is very formulaic and, at least for this listener, lacked the taut edginess of his earlier efforts. Mr. Guidall's narration is good, but can't save the predictable plot.

    "Gotta Love Mitch Rapp"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. Excellent listen. The whole Mitch Rapp series has been great. None of books have been disappointing. Can't wait to get back to the book to find out what happens next.


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

    I really really like the way he deals with arrogant people who are full of themselves especially the politicians. Makes me smile and sometimes laugh out loud.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    George Guidall is the perfect reader for this series. I would be disappointed if someone else read his next book. Guidall is the best choice for this & also Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep them coming Mr. Flynn

    "Another entertaining book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Man to be better than the print version?

    With George G narrating, yes


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

    Yes, but I don't want to give any spoilers from the plot.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The shoot out at the vet


    Any additional comments?

    Great job by Vince Flynn. Amazing given his battle with cancer. From talking a little with was vets, without giving them spoilers as they were reading print editions, fairly accurate book.

    "Always worth waiting for!"
    If you could sum up The Last Man in three words, what would they be?

    Best CIA series


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

    Vince always keeps you on the edge of your seat. This book keeps you wondering about the next move and the plot thickens the farther you go.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    George Guidall is by far one of the best readers out there. Anyone who has read the Gunslinger is aware of that. I will listen to a book just because he is the reader.


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

    Not sure about that. Maybe when Irene shows a different side of herself about her agents that are killed.


    Any additional comments?

    Awesome listen!
