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.

Yes. This is a great series but this book stands on it own. As always the narrator does a great job.
Others in the Mitch Rapp series, (I've enjoyed them all!).
Yes. Good as usual.
Many twists and turns, Flynn does not disappoint! I could listen to it all over again, which would be a first for me.
I really appreciated how he captures the flavor of Washington, seemingly more corrupt as each year passes. Also, how Washington insiders fail to understand the mentality of the middle east.
Can't wait till the next Mitch Rapp book.
One of the best yet. Rapp is more human and the other characters sre more prominent. I really liked this one.
I have read all of Flynn's books
It is not my favorite of the Rapp series, but it was another great one, with just enough comic relief to lighten the mood at the right time. Vince Flynn is really hitting his stride, starting with Extreme Measures.
Mitch Rapp of course. He losses out on the Top Spot of my favorite characters to only Jack Ryan.
It is his voice. I was reading the books before I started listening to them and George Guidall's voice is exactly what I though Rapp would sound like. It actually makes me not want to listen to other similar series read by Guidall because his voice is Rapp's. It would be like listening to another book read by Jim Dale, who read the Harry Potter series.
While this book is a stand alone book in the series, like most. To really understand everything that happens, you need to go through the whole series.
The Mitch Rapp books are always a lot of fun and this one was no exception. Fast paced and ends leaving you wanting more.
Flynn's quality is unmatched and so does Guidall's. This series is by far the best of its genre and this book is as great as the rest of them.
Flynn you're a true genius.
I no longer live in Worcester. I now live in Brooklyn, NY.
All year I look forward to a new Mitch Rapp THRILLER and then I feel let down when it is over. I don't want it to end and this is no exception! I'll miss Stan in future stories.
This is one of the best of the books in the series. There is plenty of action and not a lot of yacking.
The plot was very good nice number of twists and just great fun for a Man.
Yes he was great a normal.
The well written and complex story.
Yes, but time wouldn't allow it.
A must read!
