Publisher's Summary

The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

At first glance it looks as if Rickman has been kidnapped, but Rapp knows certain things about his old friend that cause him to wonder if something more disturbing isn’t afoot. Irene Kennedy, the director of the CIA, has ordered Rapp to find Rickman at all costs. Rapp must navigate the ever-shifting landscape of Afghanistan as the Taliban, Iranians, Pakistanis and Russians all plot to claim their piece of the war torn state.

With Afghanistan crumbling around him, Rapp must be as ruthless as his enemies and as deceitful as people in his own government if he has any hopes of completing his mission.

    "The Mitch Rapp Series"

    I have never been a big fan of political assassin stories. I find them too predicable. I began reading book 6 of the series only because I had absolutely nothing else to read. My intent was to find something better as soon as I could. About half way through the book I began to notice that the story line was written unlike anything I expected. After finishing book 6, I had to go back and start reading from book 1. I have now read all 13. Mitch Rapp is a paid assassin for the CIA. (I know, just like every other CIA story but don't judge too quickly) He puts duty, honor, and sacrifice above his own self interest. Values that are not often found in D.C. Rapp specializes in going after extreme terrorists and those that protect and aide them, whether home or abroad. He then sets out eliminating them. if you are like me and feel that far too many of todays politicians are self-serving, and do only what is popular to get themselves reelected I would encourage you to check this series out. If you also enjoy seeing wrongs righted and the guilty paying for their crimes, then by all means read these books.

    "Flynn and Rapp At Their Best!!!"
    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    Guidall is a consumate performer who can perform multiple accents flawlessly. He is my favorite reader.

    "The Last Installation from My Favorite Author"
    What did you like best about this story?

    This is classic Flynn. It has everything. And Rapp is at his best. Although it is not as good as some of his other works. Last Man is still a great book. I have listened to all of the Rapp novels multiple time and can't get enough of them. Mitch Rapp is the man that we hope hope is really out there.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did.

    "Awesome!"

    Always so sad to think Vince Flynn is no longer with us. But i loved this book. I just read it again to prepare for The Survivor. I am so excited for that and i am happy Flynn's work will continue. Back to this book. Classic Rapp. Great story with all the little twists you would expect. Great dialogue and characters as always. These books always leave me wanting more and this one is no exception. I highly recommend it.

    I am a registered nurse and a father of four great kids. I live in a rural part of Oregon and love it. I enjoy books, but Sci-Fi Fantasy has allows been the ones I reach for more than others.

    Story
    "The End of the Series"
    Would you listen to The Last Man again? Why?

    Yes, the book was a good ending point for the Mitch Rapp series since Vince has died since this book was published. Don't get me wrong I would loved to have more books in this series but I'm not sure if another author could come in and pick up the series and characters as well as Vince Flynn did.


    What other book might you compare The Last Man to and why?

    As I have said with many of books in this series is just as enjoyable and action packed as Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan series or Brad Thor's Scot Harvath series. Any person who has enjoyed either of these series will enjoy and get addicted to Flynn's Rapp character and his no nonsense approach to how the war on terror should be fought.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    Rapp-Guidall just makes him come alive. I can see his facial features and mannerisms when he is pissed off or just trying to push through all the red tape the government when it comes to getting to the truth. His attitude comes across very well by the way Guidall is able to voice the narrative. Looking forward to listening to Guidall read other authors in the future


    Any additional comments?

    Rest in Peace Mr. Flynn.

    "So Sad to Say Farewell"
    Where does The Last Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    From Book 1 to 13, the Mitch Rapp saga has been everything that lover of this genre could wish for. The loss of Vince Flynn will send painful reverberations through the souls of the many fans of Mitch Rapp and his unapologetic patriotism and sense of duty. Last Man is filled with the up, down, and sideways twists and turns that we have come to love in these adventures. Tying in with previous storylines is a great added bonus. Knowing that we won't have Mitch Rapp to save the day, and George Guidall to bring him to life for us is almost as painful as what Mr. Rapp might do to us if he caught us being all melancholy regarding his departure.

    RIP Vince Flynn & Mitch Rapp - you WILL be missed!!!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Very much so. The story twists on several fulcrum points that invoke imaginative creativity and had me developing possible scenarios in my head, only to find that I had traveled the wrong road.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, and Mr. Guidall never disappoints.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I liked the breaks at certain intervals that allowed me to process the action to that point and try to determine what I anticipated as next steps. This was very much the fine wine, best savored slowly but steadily.
