Thank you Mr.Fynn for always producing first rate material that is narrated by the master with a voice that make the words come alive, Mr George Guidall.
This Thriller is worth the credits or dollars and has left me waiting for the next Vince Flynn installment

I'm one of those guys that has a very difficult time crying. My eyes were very wet at the end of this one, though. That's how emotionally involved I got with these characters.
"Consent to Kill" was my first Mitch Rapp novel. I could tell I had missed a lot of "history" and wished I had read some of the previous tales before this one. But my limited knowledge of Mitch's past didn't really create a problem. I still enjoyed the novel VERY much.

The whole story centers around this, and is told in a way that's not only (currently) believable, but also filled with twists and turns. My fear is, after Israel takes out Iran's nuke plants, this book will IMMEDIATELY become dated, which is a shame. The story itself is unique, original, and exciting, but I see no way that it will stay relevant after that.
Politics, Torture, and Twists abound in this one, so be prepared. A lot of people complain about the amount of torturing that Mitch does in some of these, more recent books. I think it's completely in keeping with the character and the impossible situations he's placed in.

I've heard a couple of these Vince Flynn stories now and even though I don't think he writes the most three dimensional characters - he's just really good at crafting these plots that just rope you in and never let up.
How come they're not making these things into movies?

Vin..Show More »ce Flynn has been my favorite modern author from the time I first read Term Limits in 1999. I've read and reread all of his books. I've also read Kyle Mills' books which are quite good but not Vince Flynn good, I.and was disappointed when he was selected to continue the Mitch Rapp series. Based on The Survivor I was wrong because Mills nailed Vince Flynn's characters and style in The Survivor.
Vince Flynn was the favorite author of Bill Clinton and George W Bush. The latter said Flynn, through his research, probably knew more about the US military and covert agencies and their weapons and secrets than any other civilian. He did his research. Flynn was also a great patriot.
The Survivor brings back not just Mitch Rapp but a number of familiar Flynn characters such as Irene Kennedy, Stan Hurley, Scott Coleman, Jack Warch, Charlie Wicker, bad guy Louis Gould who killed Rapp's wife Anna Reilly in an earlier book, and Senator Barbara Lonsdale. The nature of the characters including Mitch Rapp is just the same as Vince Flynn created them. (Two of the characters, Irene Kennedy and Scott Coleman, played major roles in Term Limits which was written by Flynn before the Mitch Rapp character was created.)
The plot line and the plot complexity as well as the action and suspense were all true to Vince Flynn. Congratulations and thanks to Kyle Mills for a superb book!
Narration is by George Guidall, who narrated most of the audiobook versions of Vince Flynn novels. The narration, like the novel, is outstanding. Guidall is the voice of Mitch Rapp and certainly Stan Hurley also. Guidall has an interesting 7 minute discussion after the end of the book.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Survivor without reservation. I love this book!
