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.

    "Another winner from Vince Flynn"
    What made the experience of listening to The Last Man the most enjoyable?

    I was looking forward to the next book in the series since I finished the previous book. I pre-ordered as soon as I saw it available and got it the day it came out.
    I like that the references to previous history of the character reminded me of the previous books and it made this book more enjoyable for me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Man?

    Too many come to mind.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    The familiarity of the reader - it would not be the same story with him.

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

    Come on! This is a silly question to ask anyone.


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

    Yes, character well developed, action keeps the story moving.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Guidall I will rate. He's in the top two or three readers I've have the pleasure to listen to and an author has the good luck to have perform his/her book.

    It was nice to get back to the "later in life" Mitch Rapp. To see the intricate relationships on a basis of respect. I listen to this series and hope that the really is someone like Mitch out there working for us.

    "Type of book you did not want to see end."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, and without hesitation.


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

    Typical for a Vince Flynn novel. Most of his books are a great read.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    His first encounter with the civilians in a meeting in country.


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

    The whole bbok was entertaining. I thought the very end of the book could have been a little stronger.

    "Mitch Rapp is back in classic form! Great story!"
    Would you listen to The Last Man again? Why?

    Yes. Can't get enough of Mitch Rapp. Always listen a second time to pickup the details I missed the first time through.


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

    Yes. The situation looks hopeless between the foreign terrorists trying to destroy us and the liberals in Washington getting in the way of the people trying to protect us but Mitch Rapp prevails once more with a vingence.


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

    Great as always. Definitely my favorite narrator.

    "Another great Mitch Rapp saga"

    I have read all the Mitch Rapp books and this one did not disappoint. Another great story from Vince Flynn and another great performance by George Guidall. If you like action, trauma and intrigue you will love this book. I highly recommend the whole series.

    "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.
