Publisher's Summary

Fearless counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp finds himself directly in the line of fire in the latest riveting political thriller from New York Times best-selling author Vince Flynn.

For years, Mitch Rapp's bold actions have saved the lives of countless Americans. His battles for peace and freedom have made him a hero to many, and an enemy to countless more. In the tangled, duplicitous world of espionage, there are those, even among America's allies, who want to see Mitch Rapp eliminated. They have decided the time has come.

Now, the powerful father of a dead terrorist demands vengeance in its simplest form, an eye for an eye, and Rapp instantly becomes the target of an international conspiracy. This time, he must use all of his vigilance and determination to save himself before he can turn his fury on those who have dared to betray him.

Consent to Kill takes listeners behind the headlines and catapults them to the front lines of the global war on terror. It sizzles "with inside information, military muscle, and CIA secrets" (Dan Brown). Vince Flynn mixes military technology with his exclusive knowledge of Washington politics to create a hero that Americans will wish existed outside the realm of fiction.

Right On Vince... Great Book

This was my first Vince Flynn novel but it won't be the last. Consent to Kill kept me interested the entire unabridged time.

His best work to date

Read by Guillan like nobody else can do. He paces this book so that you don't miss a thing and keeps you on edge throughout. It would be a perfect book to convert to a movie if Flynn did the screenplay. I believe it would be on of the best spy movies ever.

Good book

I liked the narrator of the first books but still a great series. I will continue to the next book. It's harder to follow when the voices change.

Where's Armand?

What did you like best about Consent to Kill? What did you like least?

This is one of my favorite Vince Flynns books. I have it with George Guidall reading (performance)..as is most of Vince's books. This narration...is not very good at all...I bought it to see if I would like another voice...I DON'T!!! AND DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS Narrator.

Any additional comments?

Make sure George Guidall and Armand Shultz are the only Two people reading the new book. I'm eagerly anticipating this October. I really hope this Kyle guy can continue with Vince's outstanding stories and The Rapp character.

Fast-Paced, Fast Listen


Being a little burned-out on sci-fi, I was looking for a modern spy/assassin thriller and decided to give Vince Flynn a try. This was a pretty decent story, though all the action is in the last fourth of the book. The writing is okay, what you'd probably expect from this kind of thriller. The character development is just enough to keep the story going. Overall I liked it pretty well.

On the other hand, this was pretty much the first book where I listened to the abridged version. I honestly can't say that I felt like I missed much. It definitely gave the book a more fast-paced feel. I realize too that my comments above, about character development and such, may have been addressed much more in the unabridged version.

Overall, a fast listen to a fast-paced book that felt like it was in fast-forward. I do plan on listening to more Mitch Rapp in the future.
