#1 New York Times bestselling phenomenon Vince Flynn’s American Assassin is now available on audio for only $14.99.

Before he was considered a CIA superagent, before he was thought of as a terrorist’s worst nightmare, and before he was both loathed and admired by the politicians on Capitol Hill, Mitch Rapp was a college athlete without a care in the world…then tragedy struck.
     Two decades of cutthroat, partisan politics has left the CIA and the country in an increasingly vulnerable position. Cold War veteran and CIA Operations Director Thomas Stansfield knows he must prepare his people for the next war. The rise of Islamic terrorism is coming, and it needs to be met abroad before it reaches America’s shores. Stansfield directs his protégée, Irene Kennedy, and his old Cold War colleague, Stan Hurley, to form a new group of clandestine operatives to work outside the normal chain of command—men who do not exist.
     What type of man is willing to kill for his country without putting on a uniform? Kennedy finds him in the wake of the Pan Am Lockerbie terrorist attack. Two hundred and seventy souls perished that cold December night, and thousands of family and friends were left searching for comfort. Mitch Rapp was one of them, but he was not interested in comfort. He wanted retribution.
     Six months of intense training has prepared him to bring the war to the enemy’s doorstep, and he does so with brutal efficiency. Rapp starts in Istanbul, where he assassinates the Turkish arms dealer who sold the explosives used in the Pan Am attack. Rapp then moves onto Hamburg with his team and across Europe, leaving a trail of bodies. All roads lead to Beirut, though, and what Rapp doesn’t know is that the enemy is aware of his existence and has prepared a trap.
     As action-packed, fast-paced, and brutally realistic as it gets, Flynn’s thriller tells listeners how it all began. Download and start listening now!

    " It was great to see how Mitch Rapp became the deadly weapon he was. I guess his perfection is sometimes over the top but I guess that was why Irene Kennedy was rooting for him despite Hurley's disapproval. The narrative sometimes got in the way of the action but it was still a great read. "

    " American Assassin is a good book for those with or without military experience. Terms and lingo are defined so that no one is left in the dark on any event. The book seems to be a gateway to many other books that follow the life of "Mitch Rapp". "
