Publisher's Summary

In the New York Times best-selling series' latest installment, Mitch Rapp finds himself alone and targeted by a country that is supposed to be one of America's closest allies.

After 9/11, the United States made one of the most secretive and dangerous deals in its history. The evidence against the powerful Saudis who coordinated the attack would be buried. In return, King Faisal would promise to keep the oil flowing and deal with the conspirators in his midst.

When the king's own nephew is discovered funding ISIS, the president suspects that the Saudis never intended to live up to their agreement. He decides that the royalty needs to be sent a message and that Mitch Rapp is just the man to deliver it. The catch? America can't be seen moving against an ally. Rapp will be on his own. Forced to make a decision that will change his life forever, Rapp quits the CIA and assembles a group of independent contractors to help him complete the mission.

They've barely begun unraveling the connections between the Saudi government and ISIS when the brilliant new head of the intelligence directorate discovers their efforts. With Rapp getting too close, he threatens to go public with the details of the post-9/11 agreement between the two countries.

Facing an international incident that could end his political career, the president orders America's intelligence agencies to join the Saudis' effort to hunt the former CIA man down.

Rapp, supported only by a team of mercenaries with dubious allegiances, finds himself at the center of the most elaborate manhunt in history. It's only a matter of time before he's caught or killed. Will it be enough to turn the tables on the Saudis and clear his name?

I cannot believe you did not use George Guidell

Would you try another book from Vince Flynn and Kyle Mills and/or Scott Brick?

I cannot believe you did not use George Guidell for this book. One of my favorite book series where I am able to get lost in the story with the help of George's different character voices and you changed it to Scott Brick, who I love for historical books, but does not serve as a good narrator for this type of book. I won't order another Mitch Rapp book if George or another similar narrator is not used. I am having a hard time getting through this book. That is a first for this book series. Kyle, you have to do better with your story lines and your choice of narrator. I am sorry.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

See above.

Where is George G. When You Need Him?

While I love Scott Brick ~ he is not Mitch Rapp. The book was a bit slow and plodding and Mitch seemed so indecisive. I'm a die hard MR fan and I hope the series continues but George Guidall is needed and the old Mitch must return.

George Guidall, you were hugely missed!

George Guidall was phenomenal in his Rapp readings. Why fix something that was so far from broken? Bummer.

Great story, horrible narrator?

If you've ever watched the show Friends and remember Joey explaining dramatic acting, then you know how Scott Brick sounds. Joey would stare up and squint his eyes, making a dramatic pose. This is exactly how Brick sounds all throughout the book. It's painful to listen to, unless you speed it up to at least 1.4x the normal speed. That makes it almost tolerable. In short, Kyle Mills nailed it again! Brick ruined the audio version.

Just had to add my 2 cents!!!!

So I listened to this and was apprehensive even though I adore Scott Brick. I'm not sure why the change, I think we all associate certain voices with particular characters. Scott Brick is Jack Ryan & Evan Smoak, Dick Hill is Jack Reacher an George Guidall is Mitch Rapp. So, who ever picks narrators "Quit messing with our heads!".
The novel was excellent. I think with all the previous reviews I don't think I need to restate the plot. Instead I would like to address some of the issues brought up about this book.
I think this is an excellent story, it is very well written and if I didn't know better I would think it was written by Vince Flynn. In my opinion it is that good.
I think the fact that Mitch's normal back up team was not used was a brilliant idea. I realize credit goes to Kyle Mills idea but... this says so much about the tactical mind of Mitch Rapp. He is watching out for his friends and although he put together a rag tag crew he knew who and what he was hiring and in the end they came through for him spectacularly. It's kind of like making Louis Gould a semi hero in Last Man Standing, which was actually written by Vince Flynn.
So, that's probably about 2 1/2 cents worth.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Vince was great. Kyle was good. Scott Brick ends this series for me now. Just can't do it with him anymore.

I just can't get into it with Brick reading. I'm so disappointed. This isn't Mitch Rapp.

Sorely Missed the Voice of Mitch Rapp (George Guidall)

I cannot believe Scott Brick was chosen to replace George Guidall for narration. Hopefully, this is the first and last time he will narrate this series. I’m sure S Brick has his followers but his overly dramatic, breathless oratory does not fit here. There are so many options to choose from: Ray Porter, RC Bray, Jay Snyder, Ari Fliakos or Rob Shapiro.... I think Kyle has done a masterful job keeping the Rapp Series alive and been true to V. Flynn’s characters. It’s sad that the powers that be ruined the audio version by brining in a narrator that is such a bad fit. So sad. Guidall’s Epic voice brings the characters alive and it’s not the same without him- it’s like listening to another run of the mill thriller. Please do Mr Flynn’s legacy justice and bring in a more suitable narrator if Guidall is retired. I can honestly say I will not purchase another Flynn / Mills Audible Book if S. Brick narrates again; I would rather read the next book or re-listen to the past Flynn classics in my library. This failure is 100% on the publishers and producers and you have ruined the experience for loyal Rapp followers. Hopefully, this book will be reissued with a more appropriate narrator if Guidall is not available. Poor. Poor Decision!!!

No George Guidall

I have been an avid listener of all of the Vince Flynn books due to my time on the road and only one other book was read by someone else other than George Guidall and that was Term Limits. Very disappointing that this one was not read as well by him. Did not know if there was a reason for that.

DROP THE BRICK!! We need GEORGE GUIDALL

I have never reviewed anything in all my 20 years of living, but this just HAD to be said.
BRING BACK GEORGE GUIDALL PLEASE!!!
When Vince died we lost one of the best fiction writers of all time; there is no need to loose the best narrator as well. Where Mr. Mills drops the ball, Mr. GUIDALL picks it up. I promise, if you will get George Guidall to narrate "Enemy Of The State" I will REBUY the book. If you don't, I will just have to stop, because even in my mind I can't make the story as good as Guidall can.
Please adhere to my heart felt plea!

So dissapointed!

As soon as I stared listening to this book, I was dissapointed. I can't believe the narrator has changed from George Guidall after he has narrated so many of the Mitch Rapp books. Its like the characters have changed personalities. I have loved all the books so far and have listened to the whole series at least three times. I don't think I can even bring myself to finish this book!

Rapp has jumped the shark

Didn't think it was possible for a story about a CIA super assassin to be over the top; but it appears that Mitch Rapp has jumped the shark!
This outing is too much like the DC's 'Suicide Squad' movie - all pointless exposition and bang-bang thrills that never go anywhere and don't advance anyone's story.
Scott Brick's bland narration and lack lustre character performance really made me miss George Guidall.

Enjoyable but not one of kyles best!

I did enjoy the book as we all love mitchs stories, but just lacked that cutting edge, I expected more from Kyle after following two great books to this one, I’m still looking forward to the next three though Kyle!!!
As for Scott I though he always had a difficult task filling in George’s shoes as he has narrated 14 of the 16 books so that adjustment will always be needed, as George of course is nearing 80 now, so totally understandable as we love George!! One thing on what Scott could get better on the next book, try changing your voice for the characters a little more as I was getting lost sometimes on the characters voices as they all sounded the same!
Still looking forward to what Mitch brings in the next one, thanks again Kyle 👍

One of the best Rapp novels by Kyle Mills

Great book, joins nicely to the previous novel but then manages to mix up the formula for this story. Well worth reading!
