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, definitely Vince Flynn but definitely NOT Nick Sullivan
I love Mitch Rapp. This is my fifth book. The author generally weaves a very tense and compelling story but, like all of us, some efforts are better than others. This was not the best Flynn but it wasn't bad either. It was the narration that just drove me nuts. The ending leaves a little bit to be desired, mostly because it really doesn't end, but normally I would not have regretted purchasing this audio book. I like the genre and I have really enjoyed Vince. American Assassin was just excellent. I think that is part of the reason this was so disappointing. Protect and Defend was also excellent. Again, a different narrator than Mr. Sullivan
Totally inappropriate for these characters or for this genre. Has a very weak vocal range and tries to change characters through inflection. It is extremely lame. His French accent consists of saying "get zee woman" instead of "get the woman". I swear his German accent sounded British. The part where I nearly gave up was the communication between Mitch and his group and a helicopter. To mimic radio transmissions he seems to have just cupped his hand over his mouth. I almost laughed but it was too painful. I have listened to other books with radio or phone communications but those were at least electronically altered, if altered at all. This was much worse. He is also unable to express the emotion needed for this type of story. These are tough, deadly people and he makes them into cartoonish characters by being unable to voice them in a way that reflects that. I swear one guy sounded like Forest Gump!
The problem with all of this, I don't want to just go on trashing the man, is that it totally and completely distracts from the enjoyment of the story. I literally had to force myself to get through it, and the author and characters don't deserve this. Please, no more Nick Sullivan.
Dialog was trite, character development was superficial. Overall, very disappointing follow up to the first 2 books in the series.
Performance was fine. Like Guidall better, but that is just personal taste.
Look for another book to read.
Nope. It is not that Nick Sullivan does a bad job it is just that George Guidall does a much better Mitch Rapp.
He could have finished the book. I was left hanging. I actually went back to Audible to download the missing last chapter and then realized that there was none.
Not as much action but still incredibly well done.
Thomas Stansfield is an absolute statesman that knows what is best for the country and is such a great character to follow.
I enjoy the narrator as well as the story
Rapp takes on the usual bad guy's. The story is very good. Take a look at our judicial system.....makes one wonder ?
Love the Rapp series
Great way to remind us all to think outside the box.
I cant get enough of this series. Some of the people in this series make me so mad & I cant wait for their demise. Mitch is a bad mother & I would recommend this series to all my friends & family. If you like action, this series is amazing!
no, it's a great story but with no conclusion..where is the last chapter?
it's a great plot and I liked the book but no conclusion leaves you frustrated!
great voices, clear tone.
it damn well needs a conclusion!
this is the second Tom Clancy that I recall ends in no man's land. Enough!
I'm a serious Audible Junkie, just can't get enough of this great company.
Everything, great story, Iove this series
Seeing the bad guys get it, always a winner for me.
I love all the techo stuff as well
Ahh that would be a spoiler alert, and I don't want to do that.
Something along the Bourne type series, but better.
Don't want this series to end.
If I were the type to re-listen a book, I would. The story was great and kept me wanting to listen longer!
Only one other. This one compares favorably.
