SUMMARY:
On the front lines of the global war on terror, CIA superagent Mitch Rapp races to save one more life: his own.An eye for an eye: that's what the powerful father of a dead terrorist demands in retribution -- and with his hate-filled plea, Mitch Rapp becomes the target of an explosive international conspiracy. The fearless operative has both killed with impunity and tortured to avert disaster, all in a battle to preserve freedom. But even among America's allies, some believe the time has come to bring Rapp down. Now the hunter is the hunted, and Rapp must rely on his razor-sharp instincts for survival -- and justice -- as he unleashes his fury on those who have betrayed him.

Absolutely my favorite Mitch Rapp Novel of all time! If you have read all the books in the series leading up to this one, it will NOT disappoint. Vince Flynn is an amazing author who was taken too quickly. Read all of his books and enjoy them! ( )

Mitch Rapp is one of the more interesting characters that I've come across in literature and Vince Flynn is an exceptional writer, so I had set a pretty high bar when I started reading Consent to Kill. Of the thrillers that I have read, Flynn has among the more realistic and gritty portrayals. Most international terrorist type novels are more fantasy than fiction. In Consent To Kill an ultra-rich Arab fundamentalist puts a massive bounty to have Mitch killed, bringing out some heavy hitters to participate in his assassination. When he survives the attempt, he is hell-bent on exacting revenge in the most ruthless fashion possible. Mitch is a pretty intense character to begin with, but he takes it to a new level in this novel. There was a high level of violence, so it's not for the squeamish, but it all added to the novel. He hunts down every single person who was involved in the attack, going off the grid. This may be the best of the Vince Flynn novels that I have read and I would highly recommend it.

In Vince Flynn’s new political thriller, Mitch Rapp, the CIA’s top anti-terrorist operative and star of numerous Vince Flynn thrillers, finds himself in an unfamiliar position. Fighting against a bounty on his head and resistance from the government he’s done so much to protect, Rapp must work without any rules or restrictions as the fight is brought to his own backyard. With a bum knee, a pregnant wife and a 20 million dollar bounty on his head bringing a deadly husband-wife-duo of assassins hot on his trail, its up to Mitch to win a game he’s very familiar with; the game of survival. I found Consent to Kill, though fairly predictable and stereotypical as far as the political genre and Flynn’s previous works go, to be a fast-paced and exciting read. Flynn’s hero is portrayed as invincible, giving a slightly fictitious feel to the story, but I still found guilty pleasure as Rapp dispatched terrorists, hired guns and any one else who had done him wrong. Overall, Consent to Kill, though somewhat predictable and stereotypical for the political thriller genre, is a very entertaining read that will keep you up and night plowing through pages till the exciting climax. My overall rating for this book would be a 7 out of ten. ( )

Dedication
First words
To kill a man is a relatively easy thing--especially the average unsuspecting man. To kill a man like Mitch Rapp, however, would be an entirely different matter. It would take a great deal of planning and a very talented assassin, or more likely a team, who were either brave enough or crazy enough to accept the job. In fact, any sane man by definition would have the sense to walk away.
