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)
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
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.
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.
Wonder if the author got tired and gave up at end? Or the last chapter is lost ???
Otherwise good read until chap 25
Another great addition to the Mitch Rapp series. A great cliffhanger about political espionage and intrigue. If you like Mitch Rapp, you won't be disappointed!
Mispronounces simple names (O'Reilly/"O'Reely???), over enunciating, stilted and terrible characterization all but ruins a good story. Bring back George Guidall as Rapp.
This novel covered a lot of ground and did an excellent job setting up the next one. Not a cliffhanger ending, but a few plot threads left open and a couple of coming changes have me looking forward to the next novel. The four stars on the story are because it seemed that too many things went right for Rapp through the book. I know it would have made the book longer but it would have been more interesting and suspenseful as well to see him have to deal more with Murphy's law.
