CIA counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp falls prey to government forces with an agenda of their own after Dr. Irene Kennedy is named the successor to dying CIA Director Thomas Stansfield—a choice that enrages many inside the world’s most powerful intelligence agency. Her detractors will resort to extreme measures to prevent her from taking the reins—which makes Rapp an expendable asset. But Mitch Rapp is no one’s pawn, and he will stop at nothing to find out who has set him up.
Hear Mitch Rapp, the CIA's top operative, battle global terrorism in more of Vince Flynn's political thrillers.

"Flynn hits his stride in this thriller about high-end Washington politics...[he] has an exciting, Ludlum-like series going here." (Booklist)
"Flynn's latest thriller...is an old-school spy story...updated with heavy helpings of international intrigue and domestic politicking and betrayal." (Library Journal)
"Fans of Ludlum and Clancy will want to check it out.' (Pioneer Press)
He sounded like he was narrating a science text book.
Vincent Flynn novels not read by George Guidall should be re-recorded by George Guidall.
I can't get enough of the Mitch Rapp series, and this is no exception. My only complaint is that I could not believe this installment ended when it did. I was convinced that I failed to download a segment. Alas, the narrative was at an end. Fortunately, I have already downloaded Vince Flynn's next book. Great series Mr. Flynn!
the narrator is terrable
Transfer of Power because the narrator is also not George Guidell
George Guidell is Mitch Rapp even great narrators like John Lee or Chales Griffin could not pull off Mitch Rapp
Re-do the audio book with Guidall.
Change the narrator to Guidall.
Disappointment. Unfortunately, I paid for this book because I ran out of credits. After listening to the American Assassin and Kill Shot, I decided to start from the beginning of the series. I was forewarned by other reviewers about the poor narration but I was hoping to prove them wrong. My husband listen to the books to keep him awake during long driving trips. But we had to turn off this book because he started to get drowsy.
Any future Mitch Rapp audiobook purchase much have Guidall for the narrator. I hope the powers that be will decide to redo the old audiobooks with Guidall. Otherwise, we will read them to fill in the blanks of the series.
book was great all the way to the non ending. left a big hole, felt like a jigsaw puzzle with the last piece missing.
Any other narrator.
When the end of the book said, Hope you have enjoyed listening to Audible.
I decided to go back and "listen" to a few of the books in the Rapp series that I actually read first time through. It was a good thing I knew the story because if this was my first Audible book, I would have stopped halfway through.
Top operatives like Mitch Rapp should not sound like an elementary school librarian that is scarred of dust mite. However, the worst part has to be the narrator's failure to correctly annunciate the major characters names. It is a good thing Vince created such good characters and a story that kept me hitting the play button on my iPhone. It was also interesting to hear/see how Vince developed as an author when comparing the dialog and story with some of his early works. He will be missed.
Save the money, read the book on this one.
Another good one from the Mitch Rapp series. Unfortunately I could not enjoy this one as much as American Assassin, Memorial Day, or Third Option due to the girly voice of this narrator. It's just hard to hear Mitch Rapp, General Flood, or even Senator Clark in this guys voice. It really distracts you from the story...
Oh, which is it Anna Reilly or Anna Riley? Little things like this grated on my nerves ...
You are the sum of what you read!
I liked this book until I got to the ending. I hate movies and books that don't tie up loose ends. It is an obvious ploy to force me to buy the next book to see how it ends. It's very disappointing end to an otherwise very good book. I did not like Nick Sullivan's voice at normal speed. I needed to listen to it at 1.5 speed. At that speed it was much better.
Get a different narrator.
A different narrator would improve the listening pleasure of this book.
Yes, above all the narration.
Of course, I am a faithful fan
Yes but one written more sophisticatedly like his other novels. Maybe the narration affected my reaction.
I felt I was listening to a very simply written novel by a teenager not a seasoned author. Mr. Flynn can and always has done much better.
There must be a part 3 somewhere. It couldn't possibly end at the end of part 2. What gives, Audible?
Loved this book. Clever "political" thriller revolving around the secretive world of the CIA and the protection of "the Land of The Free". While dirty deeds and treachery are the corner stones of the "Intelligence" world there is a clear distinction made between the " baddies and the good guys" . A thoroughly entertaining yarn not as cerebrally challenging as a John le Carre but more substantial, believable and rewarding than a typical James Bond.
A little too intricate in the upper levels of Washington and not enough Mitch Rapp action! Still a good story though!
"Another great Mitch adventure"
Another fast pace adventure for Mitch, found myself driving the long way home just to be in the car longer.
