This was a great book that I highly recommend. In many ways, I'd say it was almost flawless. Great pace. Great characters. Great plot. ( )

Mitch Rapp as created by Vince Flynn is to the CIA what Sean Drummond as created by Brian Haig is to the Black Court (where special forces members are tried in a manner that the nature of their confidential missions will not be exposed). That is not to say that Mitch Rapp is a lawyer - far from it - but both provide intrigue and respect for the life they have chosen to protect and defend the United States and the freedom we hold so dear. Behind-the-scenes in fictional life reading to global headlines, there is a realism that is one-of-a-kind to the creation of their characters and brings an awareness of the sacrifices of the many national heroes who sacrifice so much and we'll never know their names.

Good read....solid Flynn. I would put this in the middle, quality-wise, of the Flynn books I have read, but that still makes it a good page-turner. Instead of Mitch Rapp, I felt the real star in this one was Irene Kennedy, CIA director, but Flynn saved the best part, and Rapp, for the end. Very interesting dynamics between Rapp and his dying mentor, Stan Hurley, during the last 1/4 of the book. I wish Flynn could explore that more in the next book. ( )

Book description
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.
