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 enjoy audio books while I commute but I'd have enjoyed the last man in either format.
The twist in plot when missing agent is found to have had himself tortured!
Doesn't distract listener
How many will he kill this time?
If your a mitch rapp fan you won't be disappointed.
i absolutely love George Guidall. i started to search for other books that he narrates. who needs tv with George.
Vince keeps knocking out great books, another exciting listen for the daily commute.
Match and his no nonsense ways of dealing with issues
excellent reading, changes voice for the characters very nicely
If you're already a fan of Vince Flynn and Mitch Rapp, then The Last Man will not disappoint. I enjoyed it a lot, as I always do.
I suppose he was trying to make it realistic but I found it so offense I quit.
Not really my kind of book, the reviews were so good I thought I'd try it, but it didn't work for me.
I am afraid so.
He is a good reader, but the story is not my style
No one, other may enjoy it.
Oh yes! Already have! It begins with a mystery and continues getting better throughout the book!
Stan Hurley!! He is probably the best character ever, in any book I've read! One never knows how he will react or what he will do next. It makes the books fun! The voice that George Guidall uses for him is PERFECT! I hope Bruce Willis will try to model his voice after the way George does it! He is great!
Yes, in all of the Mitch Rapp series. He is phenomenal, as always!
During the interrogation of Hurley, when he began barking like a dog. I burst out laughing!!
I only hope we have people in the CIA and our government who are like the characters in the Mitch Rapp series. I would feel so much better about our government if I knew they existed.
Interesting, current, installment in the Mitch Rapp series. Some issues don't flow smoothly, but the book holds your interest and delves into Washington politics. It is well set up for another sequel.
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
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.
