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)
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
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.
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.
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.
I made the mistake of assuming that Scott Brick would be the reader for this book, as he had for the others I had listened to. Bad mistake. This man was so bad I couldn't even listen to most of it. I love this series of books and have listened to most of them. This reader sounds like a regular person from next door who decided he could read novels...he can't.
No, the reader
Yes, he was horrible
Don't know because he was such a bad reader, I turned him off.
This story line was more believable than the last Mitch Rapp book or maybe it was the reader/actor, I'm not sure. I do know that it was more engaging and help my interest maybe as much as the first in the series; which was by far the best of all I have listened to so far. It seems as if the author has run out of ideas and/or plots to carry the story along.....not so much in this book but in the last few. I can only hope that the rest of the series picks up where this one stops.....at least the actor did a very good job of setting the mood and describing emotions.....hope the next continues or I'm sorry to say but Mitch will drop from my list of reads.
another great mitch rapp book, and the narrator did a great job. obviously George guidall is the king of audiobooks, but nick held his own, I would happily listen to him read the rest of the series.
Not the best story in the Mitch Rapp series but compelling nonetheless. I didn't like the narrator, particularly his attempt at accents. Often times in dialogues it was difficult to discern which character was speaking. Also--huge disclaimer, I'm from Minnesota--his attempt at a Minnesotan accent for the congressman was pathetic and offensive. Like the guy watched Fargo one time and thought it to be sufficient research.
