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)
Absolutely and have recommended series to all my "listening" friends.
Flynn's characters are well balanced.
Sullivan does a very nice job. However, Guidall is my favorite
Much to my embarrassment find myself talking to the characters while listening no matter the surroundings. People have actually responded "beg your pardon" or "you're talking to yourself again."
On to the next title.
I love Vince Flynn but Nick Sullivan is horrible. He sounds so bored and literally put me to sleep. Listening to him was truly painful... Great book, amazing story, please get a new narrator!
Great story, multiple intriguing threads, real thriller...terrible narration. Nick Sullivan's voice has an overpowering nasal quality that just gets worse when he uses alternate tones and accents to represent different characters. At points in the story, he sounds like the squid character from my children's sponge bob squarepants cartoons. Great story, true to Vince Flynn's talent...but I really wish they'd re-record with a better narrator.
I rarely write a review but I couldn't disagree more with what many of the reviewers wrote. As always, Vince Flynn keeps you on the edge of your seat. Seems to me that ending is meant to hook you into getting the next book. I was already hooked and have it ready to go. I don't understand why so many reviewers hated the narrator, I think he did a fine job.
Really good shoot em up cia operative story great characters and plot. I thought the ending was a little abrupt, but I understand it is setting up the next book in the series. If you happens to enjoy the camel club you'll enjoy Mitch Rapp
Loved it and cant wait for the next! What a great series.
People complain about the narrator but I think he's just fine.
