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.

    "Vince Flynn at his best."

    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.

    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.

    "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
    "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.

    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.
