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)
Loved it and cant wait for the next! What a great series.
People complain about the narrator but I think he's just fine.
This narrator is excellent. Each character has their own distinctive tone and quality. You feel like someone is telling a story not reading a book. And as usually with Vince Flynn the
story is perfect, all well intertwined and each end finished with satisfaction. My favorite author.
The various threads of the story are skillfully interwoven, but the story ended too abruptly. I was listening on my commute home and was surprised when the book just ended!
I was bit doubtful about getting this due to negative feedback about the narrator but I am glad I got it. Good story and narration .... Just different from Guidall. You get used to the change in narrator after very short while especially if the last Rapp book you heard was a while ago. I m not going to plunge into Separation of Power whose narrator has worse feedback than Nick Sullivan....fingers crossed. After this one I will have completed whole Rapp series to-date.
I have started the whole series over again and it like fine wine... gets better every time. If you follow the series in order, the only changes is in the Narrator.... Go get them Mitch
This was an excellent story and perfect set up for the next book. Mr Sullivan is a different perspective of Mitch Rapp and it is not horrible yes the other guy gives more layers in his voice but Sullivan is good. I enjoyed this as much as the others can't wait for the next.
Book 4 ends with a requirement you just must keep going. The end to this one is just a sequel to the next. One must know what happens to Mitch. Sign of a spellbinding series. I will continue.
You won't want to hit the pause button. Narration was weak at times, e.g uses nearly the same voice for a frail elderly man and the head of the President's Secret Service detail. DC place names are mispronounced e.g. McLean, Virginia (McLANE) is pronounced like the healthy McDonald's sandwich (McLEE). But it's a passable job.
Mitch Rapp gets caught in the crossfire of politics, doesn't trust his closest allies. So now Mitch must do what he does best.......!!!
I miss George Guidall but Nick Sullivan does a fine job. I've found that if it's a great story it sometimes does not matter who narrates.
