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)
The only problem with this audible book is they never finished reading the last three chapters for the download, or there is a part 3 that never got delivered. Tom V.
I'm a fan of the series and thoroughly enjoyed this book up until the end, at which point the novel just stopped with major unresolved issues. It almost seems that the author's intent was to serialize what could have been one fat juicy novel. I even called Audible to make sure I had downloaded the entire book.
Good book until the end. I'm sure I will read the next in the series, but ask the author to be a little more honest with his readers.
Boring story plot, almost feminine quality of narrator (male voice) makes the whole story sound really panzied out. I expect the tone and inflection of the narrator to toughen the character, in this case, Mitch sounds like a panzy through out
Over the years I've gotten used to the voice of George Guidall as Mitch Rapp and was disappointed when I first heard the new narrator. Once I got over that and continued listening the book still ended up being very good. Nick Sullivan did a great job. But what happened to George? Why the change?
I have not read the print version so I cannot compare to the audio book, but I can say that this 4th installment of the Mitch Rapp series is a winner. I started listening when I was getting my audio books from Barnes and Nobel so I got what they had and read the series out of order. Even so, this thriller was so exciting that it did not impact the effect of reading it after later books. I am glad to fill in the story line.
My favorite character is of course Mitch Rapp who is middle aged, but fit, and brilliant. I wish I could think that fast.
I have not listened to this narrator before, and I prefer Dick Hill as a narrator for these books, but Sulilvan held his own and pulled off a reasonably good performance.
I always have strong emotions when listening to Vince Flynn books. After 22 years in the Navy, the ineptness of bureaucracies is all too familiar. Stupid rules that prevent people from doing their jobs abound, and I love it when Mitch adapts, improvises, and overcomes. We have met the enemy and we are they all too often.
Mitch Rapp again fights for truth, justice, and the American way. He has a job fighting enemies, foreign and domestic. It is too bad his character probably does not exist in reality. This triller continues his saga, and it is very well done. A sequel must be in the works.
This was a great story, but very hard to listen to due to the new narrator. Sullivan did not deliver the Mitch Rapp experience that George Guidall delivered in the past.
I enjoyed Mitch Rapp's continued efforts to rid America of evil people. Nick Sullivan does a great job of narration.
Took me a while to warm up to the narrator, but the book took me in so I didn't really notice the change. I like this series, not sure where it will go next with the upcoming death of a main character, but I guess Irene will keep Mitch busy and grounded.
