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 VULNERABLE MITCH RAPP!"
    What did you love best about The Last Man?

    There are a couple of things that I really love about this book. The first is that in the beginning it reads kind of like a murder mystery, opening with a grisly crime scene and the question of who dun it and why? For a moment its like watching a good episode of CSI.

    Then there's the matter of the nail-biting action scenes; Vince Flynn usually writes those well, so no surprise there.

    And lastly, my favorite books in this series are the ones where Mitch is happily married. During that time he had something to live for and readers got to see Mitch Rapp the husband. He laughed more, showed a bit more caution in his decision-making and was overall a happier guy. As a female reader, I love to see the my tough guys soften up occasionally for one reason or another. In The Last Man, Mitch Rapp has some moments that make him wonderfully vulnerable and beautifully human. I fell in love with him all over again.


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

    George Guidall is a class act. He has a great voice for this type of book. He has been Mitch Rapp, more or less, from the beginning. He seems to be at a point where he knows the character very well which makes reading him fairly easy.

    Giving Mitch Rapp a voice just makes him feel more real.


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

    I had begun to feel a bit sad for Mitch Rapp for the loss of his wife and unborn child and how it affected him in the years following. Rapp seemed to lived for his work and didn't seem to have much of a life outside of it. I'm not entirely sure that he allowed himself to properly grieve and for a while I thought he would live the remainder of his life alone - which would've been a trajedy unto itself.

    In The Last Man, I felt a profound since of relief and hope upon hearing that Rapp wanted to find love again.

    "Rapp is stil a Bad A**!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. This is a great series but this book stands on it own. As always the narrator does a great job.


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

    Others in the Mitch Rapp series, (I've enjoyed them all!).


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

    Yes. Good as usual.

    "Vince Flynn - the master of suspense"

    Many twists and turns, Flynn does not disappoint! I could listen to it all over again, which would be a first for me.

    I really appreciated how he captures the flavor of Washington, seemingly more corrupt as each year passes. Also, how Washington insiders fail to understand the mentality of the middle east.

    Can't wait till the next Mitch Rapp book.

    Story
    "Another Home Run"
    Where does The Last Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is not my favorite of the Rapp series, but it was another great one, with just enough comic relief to lighten the mood at the right time. Vince Flynn is really hitting his stride, starting with Extreme Measures.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mitch Rapp of course. He losses out on the Top Spot of my favorite characters to only Jack Ryan.


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

    It is his voice. I was reading the books before I started listening to them and George Guidall's voice is exactly what I though Rapp would sound like. It actually makes me not want to listen to other similar series read by Guidall because his voice is Rapp's. It would be like listening to another book read by Jim Dale, who read the Harry Potter series.


    Any additional comments?

    While this book is a stand alone book in the series, like most. To really understand everything that happens, you need to go through the whole series.

    "Great as the rest of this series"

    Flynn's quality is unmatched and so does Guidall's. This series is by far the best of its genre and this book is as great as the rest of them.

    Flynn you're a true genius.

    "In this genre, Mitch is the superstar!"

    All year I look forward to a new Mitch Rapp THRILLER and then I feel let down when it is over. I don't want it to end and this is no exception! I'll miss Stan in future stories.

    "One of the best in the series"

    This is one of the best of the books in the series. There is plenty of action and not a lot of yacking.
