Summary:

A pulse-pounding thriller by #1 New York Times bestselling phenomenon Vince Flynn, as Mitch Rapp heads to Afghanistan to track down a missing CIA agent.

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.

    I love the Vince Flynn novels. Only one complaint: the two narrators I have heard both mispronounce the word short lived. Lived is not pronounced with a long i, rather a short vowel sound.

    I love this the Mitch Rapp series great books very well written never a dull spot. Vince will be missed

  • Markham Rockwell

    Great book. Very exciting from the beginning. However, got bogged down a bit through the middle. Wanted the CIA director character to be developed more. Was hoping she and Rapp might get together. Overall, a very enjoyable read.

    Just keeps you on the edge of your seat! See if you can guess who did the dirty work before the author lets you in on the "bad guys".

    I am such a fan of this series - the twist really shocked me, great book.
