#1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn (1966-2013) created one of contemporary fiction's most popular heroes: CIA counterterrorist agent Mitch Rapp, featured in thirteen of Flynn's acclaimed political thrillers. All of his novels are New York Times bestsellers, including his stand-alone debut novel, Term Limits. The Mitch Rapp story begins with American Assassin, followed by Kill Shot, Transfer of Power, The Third Option, Separation of Power, Executive Power, Memorial Day, Consent to Kill, Act of Treason, Protect and Defend, Extreme Measures, Pursuit of Honor, The Last Man, The Survivor, Order to Kill, Enemy of the State, and Red War. American Assassin was released as a major film in 2017.
CIA assassin Mitch Rapp is sent to Paris to eliminate a Libyan terrorist. Only his supervisors should know of this operation, but Rapp's cover is blown, and he barely escapes. Certain that there is a mole, he sets off to unearth the traitor while trying to stay alive. This is Flynn at his best, and Mitch Rapp fans hoping for a solid follow-up to 2010's American Assassin won't be disappointed. George Guidall is one of the finest narrators around, and he brings his expertise to this tautly written and highly suspenseful thriller. VERDICT Flynn, Rapp, and Guidall are a winning trifecta; for every collection. [The Atria/Emily Bestler hc was a New York Times best seller.-Ed.]-Joseph L.
