Synopsis

#1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn introduces the young Mitch Rapp on his first assignment, a mission of vengeance that made him a CIA superagent.

Two decades after the Cold War, Islamic terrorism is on the rise, and CIA Operations Director Thomas Stansfield forms a new group of clandestine operatives—men who do not exist—to meet this burgeoning threat abroad before it reaches America’s shores. Stansfield’s protégée, Irene Kennedy, finds the ideal candidate in the wake of the Pan Am Lockerbie terrorist attack. Among the thousands grieving the victims is Mitch Rapp, a gifted college athlete, who wants only one thing: retribution. Six months of intense training prepares him to devastate the enemy with brutal efficiency, leaving a trail of bodies from Istanbul and across Europe, to Beirut. But there, the American assassin will need every ounce of skill and cunning to survive the war-ravaged city and its deadly terrorist factions.

    I have read all the Mitch Rapp novels. This one was as excellent as all the rest. Interesting to see how his career started.

    Action packed from the first word to the fabulous ending. Great read. Gives Jack Reacher a run for his money!

    American Assassin

    I read all the Rapp series and finished with the first book last. Kinda like watching a prequel to a movie. I did it on accident but I think it was a great way to look back and see how Mitch evolved into what he is. Great series to read.

    Mitch Rapp begins here. How and why are explained . I really liked this storyline. We meet several interesting characters and go on an interesting roller coaster ride filled with adventure.

    Another winner from Vince Flynn

    It was good to learn about the main character and see where he came from. Some of the action was a bit unbelievable but one can do anything in books or movies. Glad to see many made it out alive.
