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.

george guiudall makes this book so nice to listen to he is one of the best i look for him when i search
i pick books because of him
I generally like Flynn's story telling ability. I think he just called this one in. No real suspense or compelling cliff here. Vice please do not become John Grissim!
he was good
Love the Mitch Rapp series!
Couldn't ask for a better narrator for Vince's books
Love all of Vince's books
The fact that it delves deeper into the characters a follower of this series know and love.
His masterfully versatile voice.
The best listen in a long time...George Guidall makes all the characters become old friends. That is what really does an author justice.
There was a lot going on and all the parts came together very well there were definately edge of the seat situations..
They are all great, I have bought books because he read them...
I was so happy to see another Mitch Rapp book come out I was sad that it wasn't 25 hours long....
More Mitch please.....
The beginning of this novel almost lost me. Rapp was too simple, single faceted. He was flat and just not as interesting as he was in American Assassin. But, then something happens about a third of the way through that changes it. Turned out to be a very good book.
2 or 3 of them stand out. Ironically, it's not Rapp.
GG makes them all great. He is perfect for this type of Novel.
The attempt on Rapp.
My husband has loved every one of the Vince Flynn's novels.
He is sad that he has no more to listen to.
The Last Chapter.
When is the next book coming Can't wait!!
I have never read a bad Vince Flynn book yet.
This story is filled with lots of action, and George Guidal is one of my favorite readers.
Be sure to get this one.
The intrigue of the story made it easy to keep on listening.
The narrator is my favorite reader.
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.
I had no extreme reaction.
Easy listening. Entertaining.
The best one yet.
I've listened to them all via Audible up to this one and loved, or at least enjoyed, them all. So that's saying something
"Flynn's last Book Doesn't Disappoint"
The last Man was a book that I didn't want to read/listen to. Not because I thought it was bad, but because I knew that it was the last full book written by Vince Flynn, and in a way I wanted to save it or keep it for some time in the future. Of course there isn't an author out there that would want you to not read or listen to their book, and so I started, and finished it.
I have to say, I think that this was one of the best books in the Mitch Rapp series. I found the storyline to be captivating, with Rapp coming up against a man who's genius is unrivaled in "the company". Joe Rickman, who has stolen, or gathered, the most sensitive of information, that threatens to bring the CIA to it's knees, has come up with a plan for just about every eventuality, going to extreme lengths to fool all around him. What he hasn't planned for, or better to say, what he couldn't plan for, was Mitch Rapp coming after him, with everything he has. This leads to a page turner that will keep you reading/listening from beginning to end.
George Guidall, as always does a great job at bringing the characters to life. I love to hear audiobooks read by him.
I'm happy that this book turned out so well, and I hope that the Mitch Rapp series continues long in to the future.
"Another fast moving and realistic thriller"
Always a gripping thriller writer and true to life in the modern world.
Vince Flynn has a compelling style and this book is a good addition to his library.
"Another book you won't won't want to put down."
It is a pity that Vince Flynn lost his life at such an early age. To think of the best novels he could yet write we will miss those brilliant stories and the out hero Mitch Rapp.
"Rapp @ his best!"
Great story, fabulous narration and as always a ripping good yarn!! Good to see a vulnerable side to Rapp.
"another average Mitch book"
I have read or listened to all Vince Flynn books, this is below average, same old formula, read it all before, come on Vince you last 2 books were brilliant.
