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.

The well written and complex story.
Yes, but time wouldn't allow it.
A must read!
One of the better Mitch Rapp stories and all Mitch Rapp stories are great. Well done Vince Flynn.
One of the better readers in Audible. Good performance.

Three words? You're kidding right?
While the entire Vince Flynn series is wonderful. It truly is a treat to see an author get so far into a series and not lose sight of the characters, the emotion and twists. I highly recommend the series and this book. As always, the narrator George Guidall is extraordinarily talented and a real joy to listen to.
Stan Hurley. What an obnoxiously wonderful character.
AAA+Which by the way is a better rating than some countries! He is always remarkable.
My eyes were wide at the narrative of Mitch Raps rant to the Afgan Local Police. Riveting.
Please Vince, you can have my money... Write more Mitch Rapp books.
Boring! Macho is fine if there is any character development; or any character depth at all. This reads like a pubescent war video game. This was a waste of a credit--I expected more based on the preview. This is not what I consider a mystery, or even a thriller. I am moving on to another book that is actually well written, and will not be finishing this.
This is hands down one of Vince Flynn's best novels yet! It is a great comeback from the last Mitch Rapp book Kill Shot, which in my opinion was a bit of a disappointment. Mitch and Hurley live up to their reputation making this a great listen. I simply could not stop listening. So if you like the MItch Rapp series or if you are looking for a great listen with a lost of action from start to finish then this is the book for you. Warning, those adverse to a lot of violence may find this book offensive. Everyone else, you can't go wrong with this choice.
If you aren't in to the Afganastan fiasco, you won't like this story. I am not and didn't. The whole story revolved around a torture ... which I hate. Rapp was his traditional macho self but spends much of the book on the sidelines from an injury then reappears cured without adequate explanation of how he recovered in a matter of hours. In the NFL he would have been on injured reserve for a couple of weeks at least. Oh well, it is fiction. If you like the Afganastan stuff and torture, you may enjoy it.
There is something about this series that just appeals to me and it has managed to maintain originality and not become formulaic and predictable. I love the political intrigue and action. On some level you wish that people lilke this really existed, someone that could just dismiss the political agenda and get to the heart of the issue in a very direct and sometimes violent manner, which is what makes this series such a pleasure to read or listen to. I am always sad when the book ends especially since I always finish it in a day or two. I find things to do so I can just continue to listen and then can't wait for the next installment.
The narrator as always is perfect, he adds just the right amount of drama without going overboard and is the real voice of this series.
It was refreshing to see Mitch get a little loopy in the hospital and let his guard down, it was a very interesting turn of events.
If you like the series, this entry is definately worth the credit once again.
Vince Flynn is my favorite author. I enjoy CIA or FBI thrillers, and sometimes light reading like Judith McNaught or Cathrine Coulter. Personal information, I became a grandma last year and love it!
I highly recommend this audiobook. Flynn makes the Rapp character and to a lesser degree the Nash character a little different making me look forward to future books.
The plot is fast moving and has enough characters that keep your attention through the whole book. The facts feel real and it keeps my emotions enganged throughout the story.
George Guidall brings the character's alive, especially Rapp. He is amazing.
I wish the book was ten times this length and we didn't have to wait another year to hear the next part in the series... :( Simply awesome.
