The Last Man Audiobook

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.

    "Another entertaining book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Man to be better than the print version?

    With George G narrating, yes


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

    Yes, but I don't want to give any spoilers from the plot.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The shoot out at the vet


    Any additional comments?

    Great job by Vince Flynn. Amazing given his battle with cancer. From talking a little with was vets, without giving them spoilers as they were reading print editions, fairly accurate book.

    "Always worth waiting for!"
    If you could sum up The Last Man in three words, what would they be?

    Best CIA series


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

    Vince always keeps you on the edge of your seat. This book keeps you wondering about the next move and the plot thickens the farther you go.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    George Guidall is by far one of the best readers out there. Anyone who has read the Gunslinger is aware of that. I will listen to a book just because he is the reader.


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

    Not sure about that. Maybe when Irene shows a different side of herself about her agents that are killed.


    Any additional comments?

    Awesome listen!

    I'd like to see Mitch get involved with the fornsic agent he was flirting with in the hospital.

    Story
    "Good but no surprices"

    The story is pretty seethrough - but then I have read/listened to a few of these books by now. The caracters is what make this story good. I got really involved with the caracters and could relate to all of them. Some made me really irritated for being so extremly naive and gullible with no critical sense at all, while others intrigued me and made me want to learn more about them. The storyline was pretty basic and one knew the outcome pretty quickly. I bought this book because I was hopeing it would be different - but I was let down there. I also had a bit of a problem with the narrator - his speach was not clear enough for my liking - at the same time his performance matched the caracters in the book. I guess its just me who is not used to this slurry speach.

    Good enough but no surprises unless you get excited about the caracters. I would recommend it for braindead entertainment.

    "Yet Another Fantastic Mitch Rapp Installment"

    I have been waiting on the edge of my seat for another Mitch Rapp installment especially one that didn't focus on the back story and this sure did not disappoint.

    Another gripping performance by George Guidall also.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It was great for Flynn to be back on track with Rapp & leave the prequels. Another classic that was exciting to listen to; did not disappoint!

    "Where is Mitch when we need him"
    What made the experience of listening to The Last Man the most enjoyable?

    the irony of the present day political insanity engulfing this wonderful USA being presented in a fiction novel or is it what is really occuring in our out of control political environment.


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

    All of Rapps actions are indelible


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

    yes i have, and consider Mr. Guidalls performances outstanding


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

    I feel it would be a travisity to attempt to put this in a film version,one needs to internalize the statement that Vincent Flynn is presenting.

    "Mitch is back"
    What made the experience of listening to The Last Man the most enjoyable?

    The storyline is familiar to those who've listened to this series before, revisiting Afghanistan and with familiar characters. The narrator is excellent: his voice, pacing and done are excellent and very suitable for the novel.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    Mitch Rapp. Definitely, although, interestingly enough, Kennedy is good too.


    Any additional comments?

    Just a good, tight novel with characters I've become familiar with over the rest of the 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.
