Summary:

It's a gorgeous autumn day in Georgetown. The Democratic candidates for president and vice-president of the United States are dutifully glad-handing voters and the media outside a grand estate where a national-security conference has just been held, bringing together the world's greatest minds to discuss the issues that are threatening the country. It's American politicking at its best. That's when all hell breaks loose.

When presidential candidate Josh Alexander's motorcade is ambushed by a group of terrorists, the nation is thrown into turmoil. Two weeks following the attack, Alexander is carried to victory by a sympathy vote, but his assailants have not been found. On the surface, it appears to be the work of al-Qaeda, and soon the FBI and the rest of the government begin scouring the world for jihadists. But then CIA Director Irene Kennedy and Special Agent Skip McMahon are presented with classified information so toxic that they consider destroying it altogether, as it contains intelligence pointing to some of the most powerful players in Washington.

Enter Mitch Rapp, the one man reckless enough to follow the evidence to its explosive conclusion. His journey takes him through the shadowy world of contract killers, into the darkest corners of the globe, and eventually back to Washington, where the fragile pillars of power are shaken to the core.

    I am about half way through this and it moves right along with its twists and turns, none of which seems at all contrived.....I sure would like to think we have real agents like Mitch working for us in the CIA.

    Awesome book! This was my first Vince Flynn book and I am an instant Mitch Rapp fan. I am going to buy the first seven books today! Alex Cross, Jason Bourne, and Agent Pendergast have nothing on Mitch Rapp!

    Once I got started on Vince Flynn, I couldn't stop. I love Mitch Rapp - he says and does what we would all really like to and he doesn't necessarily have to play by the rules. I keep wondering why the movies haven't picked this series up yet since Clancy isn't writing about Jack Ryan anymore.

    Once again Mitch Rapp does it again! I just can't seem to get enough of that man! A good plot, with good characters. Any book with Mitch Rapp in it ; is guaranteed to be an excellent read.

    I have been a fan of Vince Flynn for a long time now. This book did not disappoint. The action and suspense is terrific. Can't wait for the others on my list to come. I have "read" several of them, but it is nice to listen them being read. Gives a whole new perspective on the books.

    Always have liked Mitch Rapp. He is the ultimate spy, no holds barred, willing to do anything he needs to do to get the job done.

    Vince Flynn writes a good, fast thriller 9 times out of ten. This is Flynn at his best. Satisfying toi the very end, this Mitch Rapp book will not disappoint. If action, up-to-date political intrigue is what yoiu are looking for, with a healthy dollop of justice, served at exactly the correct emperature, this book is for you. George Guidall is an EXCELLENT narrator.

    Vince Flynn and Mitch Rapp keep getting better. I actually felt my pulse increase while listening to this book. The narrator was excellent too. FANTASTIC!

    This book was very fast-paced and interesting from the beginning. It took a little extra concentration to keep the characters straight, as I was going across country while listening to it and had to pay attention to directions, but the reader did a great job and I really enjoyed the experience.
