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.

Great spy novel for a long drive

Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Man to be better than the print version?

Not sure

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

Pretty much guessed how the plot would twist and turn based on this author's style but I still enjoyed listening.

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

George Guidall's performance is totally up to his usual standard of excellence.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not really

Any additional comments?

Good for a long drive to help keep alert. I listened on long walks as well.

Confused

I wasn't totally turned off by this story. It seemed to have good bones. I just thought it took to long to get going and when it did it dropped.

Flynn's Best Yet

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it is simply a great read (listen).

Who was your favorite character and why?

Rapp, of course.

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

Director Kennedy's character development by the author was enhanced by Mr. Guidall's outstanding narration.

Any additional comments?

Mr. Flynn is getting better. So many authors seem to rest on their laurels and "phone it in", e.g., Grisham, Clancy. However, this author has built on previous novels and simply gotten better with age. Thank you, Mr. Flynn.

Still the best

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The story is great, the reader is great, and there is plenty of action. In fact, it's hard to make yourself stop when you get where you are going if you are in the middle of a good scene!

What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

George Guidall's voices are always right on. You get inflection in the discussion that you wouldn't have reading with just your eyes.

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

Would have liked to listen to it all in one sitting but we weren't traveling that far! We did get it all done on one trip, but it was in a couple of sessions.

Any additional comments?

Thank you, Vince Flynn, for creating someone this good. Can't wait to see what his head injury does for him in the next book.

Vince Flynn Kills Me

This book had me from the beginning and I was disappointed to hear it finish. George G does a great job yet again. Mitch truly is an Apex Predator and I'm glad we have guys like him on our side in the real world.

Never disappointing..Ever!

What made the experience of listening to The Last Man the most enjoyable?

The Author has increadable sense of timing. each book has complemented the previous. The characters are usually flawless although Mike Nash was a littleout of sync. but that is nit-picking. the book was outstanding! I hope I am reading Vince Flynn's work for decades to come.
To your Health Vince Flynn, I hope and pray for you and your family only the best.
Thank you

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

As do all of Vince's books

What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He has become the voice of this series. He lends personality and life to each and every character. I identify these voises with the books. Anyone else would change who these characters are

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

Yes

A story of the realities of war.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Though it was tough to actually sit and listen to the story, knowing that it either true or based on one such incident or even a general description based on many (rather general) story and their gory details.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Man?

Since I am only half way through I already have enough knowledge and experience to know the scope and possible killings (etc), double crosses and such - I know what to expect and will not be surprised at any variations on a theme.

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

Very well performed.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Definitely. Extreme might be a understatement. Reality is often eye opening and stomach wrenching.

Any additional comments?

Don't be surprised if this become a movie. I would venture to say that the chances are QUITE strong that it will either be on the big screen or on TV. Most likely "Big Screen" material in my humble opinion.

Dissapointed

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I don't know who would enjoy this . I think most Vince Flynn fans are going to be disappointed

Would you ever listen to anything by Vince Flynn again?

I probably will give the next one a listen, but thats only because I have enjoyed his earlier books

How could the performance have been better?

The was way to much Kennedy and not enough mitch Rapp

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I would have a tough time finding any redeeming qualities about the book
