Overall very solid, good read.

My only issue is, as many people have said, that the end send to be wrapped up to quick. There were a lot of questions in my mind. ( )

This is the first book from this series I've read and was surprised to find out that it's number 12. This was good thriller with a bit of mystery thrown in. Rapp is the guy you root for and the one making a difference.

In this one he is betrayed and he is almost killed. Lots of trust is needed in this game, and now he doesn't know who put his trust in. This makes everyone a little nervous. The trap was sprung, and a terrible mess was left in Paris where a foreign oil minister was shot, his prostitute, 4 apparent guards 2 hotel guests and a bell boy. A very big mess and it was all laid at Rapp's feet. Rapp needs to clear his name and find who set him up and take care of business. ( )

Sitting here writing this review is bittersweet. Yes, this was another good Mitch Rapp book. No, it wasn't the best, but unfortunately for me it will be the last. Due to the untimely death of Vince Flynn I will not get to enjoy anymore banter between Mitch and Irene or Hurley, and of course the late great Stansfield. But I digress; this book takes off after the events in American Assassin. Rapp is set out on his own to take down (ok, Kill, assassinated, eliminate, or whatever you want to call it) a list of known terrorist or associates/helpers of terrorist groups. Everything has been going just fine for Rapp, even his love life is looking up, until Paris and now his not sure who to trust or if he should trust anyone. During a routine even easy assassination Rapp is ambushed and starts to think that he is set up. In fact, he was set up just not by who he thought. Using the skills Hurley has taught him Rapp turns the tables and tries to find out if he was set up. Unfortunately, one of Hurley's own men goes above and beyond and tries to take out Rapp. After several tense days, Mitch reaches out to Irene and with Stansfield in tow the whole story comes out and true to Rapp, Hurley, and Flynn standards justice is swift and permanent. If you enjoy spy thrillers then you will like Vince Flynn and take it from some one who listened to all the books and you haven't read or listened to any start with "prequels" and start the originally published series I think you'll enjoy it.

I'm really enjoying these Mitch Rapp prequels. Aside from giving up a backstory on how Rapp became who he is, they are also more unpredictable because young Rapp is obviously more prone to mistakes and doubts than the perfect CIA assassin we know and love. As a bonus you get the backstories of other characters from the series- Stansfield, Kennedy, Riley, and Hurley, seeing them younger and more involved in the nitty gritty of the operations. A few gruesome scenes, but it would not be a Vince Flynn story otherwise. ( )
