Fearless counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp finds himself directly in the line of fire in the latest riveting political thriller from New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn.

  

For years, Mitch Rapp's bold actions have saved the lives of countless Americans. His battles for peace and freedom have made him a hero to many, and an enemy to countless more. In the tangled, duplicitous world of espionage, there are those, even among America's allies, who want to see Mitch Rapp eliminated. They have decided the time has come.

Now, the powerful father of a dead terrorist demands vengeance in its simplest form -- an eye for an eye, and Rapp instantly becomes the target of an international conspiracy. This time, he must use all of his vigilance and determination to save himself before he can turn his fury on those who have dared to betray him.

Consent to Kill takes listeners behind the headlines and catapults them to the front lines of the global war on terror. It sizzles "with inside information, military muscle, and CIA secrets" (Dan Brown). Vince Flynn mixes military technology with his exclusive knowledge of Washington politics to create a hero that Americans will wish existed outside the realm of fiction.

Listener Opinions

    " I picked this up at Sam's Club one day just to read while I was waiting for my car to be washed and was instantly hooked. I have subsequently bought most of his books. All very good and give great history on the Middle East and the conflict there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 2/20/2014

    " Like 24 on steroids. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Slopez1022 | 2/17/2014

    " My intro to Mitch Rapp and the CIA Assassin, who defends this country from the Muslim extremists who threaten it on a daily basis. A believable tragic hero, with both strengths and flaws. A must read, Vince Flynn actually interviewed political figures, former CIA Agents, and did extensive research to make this as believable as possible, without compromising our national security of course :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 2/16/2014

    " I seldom read a book that I enjoy from the first page to the last, but this one certainly qualifies. I hope we have a real Mitch Rapp lurking somewhere in our government. I think we're going to need him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 2/15/2014

    " Omg. I can't believe what he did to Anna. I am so disappointed and thought, well hoped, she was really alive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tropean | 2/15/2014

    " In a world where Comedy Central (!) won't even run shows critical of radical Islam, Flynn continues to deliver "novels" that accurately portray who's who what's what in the world of international terror. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick | 2/9/2014

    " This is a good break from 'serious' reading. I like Vince Flynn because he builds the novel around a more conservative approach showing the State Department and the CIA in a light that is probably more realistic than other novels. The writing is concise and action packed and the main character Mitch Rapp is both down to earth and superhero at the same time. It would be interesting to have Mitch Rapp have to kill Jason Bourne but it sounds a little like a comic book storyline. After all how can you pit two 'good guy's' against one another? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Serri | 1/16/2014

    " Typical Mitch Rapp book, good, but not as good as the others. Good to read after Flynn's book Memorial Day if you are working through the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Gronner | 1/12/2014

    " This is my first Vince Flynn novel and it was exciting. I story about a CIA assassin. I do recommend him him you like the spy/CIA type book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patty | 1/10/2014

    " My favorite Mitch Rapp book! This one will tear at your heart but it is one of the best. This one gives you a glimpse into what it would feel like to seek revenge but Flynn deals with it so beautifully. "

    " A better listen "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nowhere Man | 12/27/2013

    " My second Vince Flynn book, which paled at the beginning comparing to The American Assassin, but quickly surpasses my previous VF book. "

    " I couldn't get through this book. The writing wasn't too bad, but it was cliche. After the great Clancy, this sort of thing has been done already. "

    " If you think Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan is too big of a pussy, then this book is for you. Imagine Fox News writing a paperback ... but worse. "
