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 run 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.

I really enjoy Audible and the great choice of books. I like true stories, good mysteries, and books about life events.
This book in my opinion was not typical Vince Flynn. His books usually grab your interest within the first few pages, this book never got mine. I did not care for the narrator, the story or the characters.
I am a big fan of Vince Flynn and have enjoyed all of his books, and I have read all of them. This book was disappointing. I hope this is not a first read for folks, if it is they will most likely not read another book by Flynn, that will be there loss.
Do yourself a favor, do not judge the author by this offering.
Maybe a new to Mitch listner, then they can save the best for last.
I usually like Arman Schultz but this time he was hard to understand. I'd give him another shot only because I know he can do better.
I can't say. I was so dissappointed I quit listening to it after about 2 hours.
Better luck next time.
