Publisher's Summary

Newly appointed CIA director Dr. Irene Kennedy is the target of an inside plot to destroy her and prematurely end the American President's term. To make matters worse, Saddam Hussein is close to entering the nuclear arms race - something Israel has vowed to stop. With the haunting specter of World War III looming, the president calls on his secret weapon: top counter-terrorism operative Mitch Rapp. But with only two weeks to take out the nukes, Rapp is up against a ticking clock - and impossible odds.

Take another thrill ride with Mitch Rapp.

Poor character renditions

Reading descriptions was ok, but voices for dialogue were not well done. However, the story line was good.

This narrator has cured my insomnia!!

This is a great series but the narrator reminds me of the old black and white films that they use to show us in elementary school in the 1970's concerning the merits if good hygiene.

Imagine Ward Cleaver just without the bubbly personality.

Worst Mitch Rapp book so far

Plot was horrible, you could literally skip a chapter and not be lost. Narrator made it worse, really hard to get through it all. Read them all so far and they started good but getting into the earlier books it gets really slow.

Reader is whiney.

Very good story, but the reader made even the tough guys sounds whiney and feminine.

Vince Flynn you're my hero! Well done!

This part of the story line was so well put together with all the emotional ties to each of the characters all while dealing with such a national/global issue! Spectacular!

Started slower but picked up

This one started slower than all the other books up to this point in the Mitch Rapp series. It did pick up though and ended up liking it.

For the first hour or so, the narrator sounded to me like he was telling a story to kids, and that style got on my nerves a bit. But like the story, the narration seem to get better after the first few hours into the book and I ended up not minding it at all.

I love the series and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

Reader needs help

When you get past the first two thirds of the book (where every line of dialogue is either screamed or delivered in a pathetic whine) you get treated to the readers idea of nuance which generally equates to lines you cannot hear at all (which is as close as he gets to subtlety or inflection) or accents that drift and waver all over the place. Good novel, good story, terrible delivery.
