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 have read or listened to most of the Mitch Rapp series and enjoyed all but this one. Too predictable and the ending is really disappointing. Cannot recommend this one.
Loved how the story started, intriguing details and a quick surprise. But, then the build up to a .... dropped ending, where we are left holding for an ending. Nuts!
I love Vince Flynn (RIP). I loved all the books. In the series's except this one. I gave it 3 stars because of Flynn and Rapp. I listened to all the other bulks before this one. I only read it because I was joesin for more Rapp however there was noooooo character development. It's like all the characters were thrown in a blender and they came out with no identity. Do not read this first it may sour you away from a great series. Leave it for last
Bad Midwest accents, mispronounced words, awkward story-interrupting pauses. Just plain bad, especially compared to George Guidall who has read other books in this series.
This is more about Washington politics than Rapp's special talents. It really describes how you can never know when you will be on the other end of the hit list. And it ends on a cliff-hanger, so isn't very satisfying as a stand-alone book. However, if you are into this series, then you need this just for continuity. And I don't know where the years went. Rapp was in Europe in love with Greta, then here's Rapp with 10 years under his belt, and no more mention of Greta. It's all about the reporter from the Olympus White House Has Fallen Down previous book. Feels as if there were about 3 books missing.
