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.

    "Rapp is back"

    Vince Flynn never fails to entertain. I've enjoyed every journey with Mitch and this one had me just as entralled as the others. George Guidall is also great. My only criticism would be that the story seem to move a little too fast. Vince Flynn usually builds up events a little longer. I like that it really helps you get into the scene. This time I found myself having to rewind a few times because it seemed like I missed something. All in all though this was great.

    Mitch is back and once again he is flexing his muscles. I love Mitch’s no nonsense approach to getting things done that nobody wants to do. Vince please keep writing and will keep reading.

    I love to read espionage and criminal thrillers. My lifestyle doesn't allow time to sit and read so audio books is really an enjoyment.

    "This book Rocks"
    Where does The Last Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of Silva's best books


    What did you like best about this story?

    All the secrets and how they were brought to light.


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

    George is my favorite narrator. He adds so much to a book in how he shows feeling in the read.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Rome is not innocent!

    Story
    "Mitch Rapp Delivers Again!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Tom Clancy, Brad Thor or Lee Child. If you like any of those books, you will LOVE Mitch Rapp.

    One caveat on this book. You really should read all the books prior to understand this story completely.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Fast in the beginning, intriguing in the middle, and all out awesome in the end!


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    I live his style. His voice is rough, smooth, and perfect.


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

    Yes, but I don't want to spoil the story.


    Any additional comments?

    The only issue with Mitch Rapp books is that they end. I wish there were 100 of these books. Vince Flynn books are the kind that I start and I find myself making time to read. I can't wait to hear what happens.

    What did you like best about this story?

    It pulled me through many emotions and expectations about what was going on, and in the end it was satisfyingly complex!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I can't give that away.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    Story
    "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.
