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.

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.

I started reading the Mitch Rapp series at Book 2 and this one was in fact the last of the series of 13 books and I thoroughly enjoyed each and every one. It is a loss to us who enjoy this type of story that Vince Flynn passed away at such a young age. If you like fast passed adventure which holds your attention Mitch Rapp and his exploits will keep you entertained for hours.

Quite good. No surprises.

There is no surprises but thats okay. It is still better than having nonsense surprises that is forced into the story.. However the plot on greta and her grandmother towards Rapp is so unrealistic..

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.

Excellent introduction to the character known as Mitch Rapp. It is a sad fact that we've lost one of modern America's best authors; R.I.P. Vince Flynn.
