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)
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.
A great fan of stories and audiobooks. Good ones.
I loved the first two, and even liked the next two, but I almost feel sorry for the author having to pump these out with a cookie cutter. Can you say 'formula'? Had a tough time getting though it and can see that the ideas are done, gone, finished. How many ways can you shoot a guy 'between the eyebrows" with a suppressed MP3 or whatever. Seems like he got tired of trying to invent muslim names so he turned this story onto itself and someone from the inside the CIA has to kill the hero. But not after, of course, he has to rescue the fair maiden. I guess the superhero Mitch has killed off all the middle eastern terrorists.
But, for all you reading this that have not been through at least three or four of this series, it is great, go for it, just don't OD on Mitch and Dr. Kennedy and become bitter like me. Quit at four, or five.
I wish the motives of the
Anyone else. He has a really amateurish style and is quite stilted at times.
AUDIOBOOK IS INCOMPLETE!
Part two ends without ending the book!
SOMEONE NEEDS TO FIX THIS!!!!!!
I love Vince Flynn - - this is VERY FRUSTRATING
I read this one years ago in print. Now listening to this narrator I find Mitch's fiance is named Anna Really. Huh, certainly lookled like Reilly to me. You learn something every day. Lol
I enjoyed Mitch Rapp's continued efforts to rid America of evil people. Nick Sullivan does a great job of narration.
The way the story comes together. In the end this series never disappoints. Plus I love how the books overlap.
You never knew who was going to make it out alive.
The scene where he breaks into the Director of the CIA home.
He love for Anna
I've never really been a fan of the narration of this series.
I read some of the other reviews before I bought this book. I have listened to several of the Mitch Rapp series and enjoyed everyone of them. Some of the complaints that other reviewers had were in regards to the narrator. I saw nothing wrong with Nick Sullivan's narration as a matter of fact I think he is one of the better readers that I have heard.
I grew up in the era of weekly serials and I loved them. I personally like the way Mr. Flynn builds for a series. The Third Option is fine entertainment and worth the price. Enjoy, I certainly did.
Like mainly mystery and suspense with a bit of chick lit and non-fiction thrown in. Severe addiction going on 10 years to Audiobooks.
You don't know what you are missing. His books are amazing and I am listening to them now a second time around. It saddens me that the world lost such an amazing author at such a young age. I first did the Mitch Rapp series out of order, which you can do...The second time around I am doing the series in order. I am appreciating the development of the characters more doing it in order.
I was surprised to hear a woman's voice announcing that "This has been a recording of..". At first I thought that my download was messed up and that it was truncated. I actually went back and re-listened to the last minute to see if I missed something. As it turns out, all I missed was that the book ended. The book felt more like a murder mystery detective type book as there was no big event at the climax typical of something in the Espionage genre. The last chapter was simply a recap of the bad guys plot to other characters in Mitch Rapp's corner. No big surprises or plot twists. No real Aha! moments. It simply ended mid conversation.
"Another great Mitch adventure"
Another fast pace adventure for Mitch, found myself driving the long way home just to be in the car longer.
