#1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn is back with another nail-biting political thriller that follows the young Mitch Rapp on a deadly mission to hunt down the men responsible for the Pan Am Lockerbie terrorist attack.

For months, Mitch Rapp has been steadily working his way through a list of men, bullet by bullet. With each kill, the tangled network of monsters responsible for the slaughter of 270 civilians becomes increasingly clear. He is given his next target: a plump Libyan diplomat who is prone to drink and is currently in Paris without a single bodyguard. Rapp finds him completely unprotected and asleep in his bed. With confidence in his well-honed skills and convinced of the man’s guilt, he easily sends a bullet into the man’s skull. But in the split second it takes the bullet to leave the silenced pistol, everything changes. The door to the hotel room is kicked open and gunfire erupts all around Rapp. In an instant the hunter has become the hunted. Rapp is left wounded and must flee for his life.

The next morning, the news breaks in Washington that Libya’s oil minister has been killed along with three innocent civilians and four unidentified men. The French authorities are certain that the gunman is wounded and on the loose in Paris. As the finger pointing begins, Rapp’s handlers have only one choice: deny any responsibility for the incident and pray that their newest secret weapon stays that way, avoiding capture and dying quietly. One person in the group, however, does not believe in leaving things to chance. Rapp has become a liability, and he absolutely cannot be allowed to be taken alive by the French authorities. But it will soon become clear that nothing is more dangerous than a wounded and cornered Mitch Rapp.

    " Mitch Rapp is in "Superman" mode as he is extremely perturbed at the los of his wife. Good narration, good storyline. I was thoroughly impressed with both the story and the story telling. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Mcgrogan | 2/5/2017

    " Another good read from Vince Flynn's series. Mitch Rapp kicks butt! "

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

    " A much better effort than the previous American Assassin novel in the Mitch Rapp series. Flynn has spent the last year battling prostate cancer, so any effort from him was a welcome sight. Overcoming a somewhat plodding middle after a quick start, this plot came together nicely at the end and really showcased what Flynn was trying to do with the first AA novel, show the beginnings of Mitch Rapp and what shaped him into the assassin he became. Flynn really pulls that off here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Hull | 2/14/2014

    " An enjoyable read - my first Vince Flynn thriller. I enjoyed the characters and the storyline flowed well ensuring a quick read. I will definitely be reading more of Flynn's books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelli Stephenson | 2/2/2014

    " Actually a very well written book but a few of the characters had some serious language---I always dreaded their chapters. 4 star had it not been for that. The book had me guessing the entire way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill S. | 1/18/2014

    " Typical Vince Flynn book. Mitch Rapp once again saves the world with a little help from Irene Kennedy and despite the pitfalls placed in his way by Thomas Stansfield and Stan Hurley. But a most entertaining read nonetheless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jerry | 1/17/2014

    " Another thriller which I enjoyed reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rick | 1/16/2014

    " Great story. The timelines are a little messed up. This is supposed to be the second prequel, however, some of the technology is too up to date. Still recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Geoff (Scouse) Woodland | 1/14/2014

    " I couldn't put it down - a cross between James Bond & Bourne Identity series, but different. It was bought for a birthday present and I'd never heard of this author. I'd finished it (sadly) in a few days. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rick Kettner | 1/12/2014

    " Was 4 1/2 stars, but I rounded up. Entertaining follow-up to the previous book (chronologically) in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Art | 1/4/2014

    " This would have been well-done, for me, if it appeared as #2 in order. As a prequel, however, I don't think that it's as deep or thought-provoking as his last few. Still, all in all, I enjoyed it and recommend it to my friends. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jp Moholt | 12/31/2013

    " time to wrap it up and move on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 12/24/2013

    " The one thing I can never say about the Mitch Rapp series is that there isn't enough action. My goodness, dead bodies everywhere, but what do you expect when you are reading about a CIA assassin. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barry Mann | 12/14/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joy Dyer | 11/4/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve B. Davis | 9/6/2012

    " One of Flynn's best ever. Mitch Rapp is the best character in thriller's today. I read this during my daily commute and missed my train stop a couple of times. A real page turner that never lets up. If you like action, a good plot, and interesting characters this is the one for you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamela | 9/1/2012

    " Nice prequel to the series. I thought that this had more developed characters then some of his other books with a little less prescribed plot line. A good read when you want some brain candy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barry | 7/20/2012

    " Well written as usual. Kept my attention from beginning to end. Character development is well thought out and believable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg Just-greg | 7/2/2012

    " Not his best novel but to be fair, he was battling cancer while he was writing this one. I'm sure he will be back on top of his game for his next book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 6/22/2012

    " I've read all of Vince Flynn's books up to his newest release. They are fast-paced, well written and do not disappoint. His details are just enough and his characters are multi-faceted. If you're looking for (non-politically correct) political thriller/current events fiction, Flynn is it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve Markham | 6/8/2012

    " I was looking for a good spy thriller for an overseas plane trip and this bad boy did just the trick. It was very exciting and had great characters. Add in plenty of surprise plot twists along the way and you've got a great travel diversion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Scumaci | 6/5/2012

    " Very well written. Book is about early in Rapp's career. Vince has a whole lot more that can be written about Rapp. Waiting for the next installment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 7of9 | 4/25/2012

    " This isn't quite up to the standards of Vince Flynn's earlier novels but it's still a pretty intense thriller. I would have liked to see a few more plot twists though but that's a fairly minor complaint. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 AAN | 4/14/2012

    " The second book in the Mitch Rapp series is a real winner. It's a very exciting espionage thriller that moves along at a brisk pace with nary a slow spot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Teri Moote | 3/22/2012

    " Disappointing. I was a Mitch Rapp/Vince Flynn fan, until this one. My main objection is with all the colorful language. Too much for me, and a new addition to the series. Too bad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Ryan | 3/19/2012

    " This wasn't a bad spy novel, but it's not the same caliber as similar novels from other authors working in this genre such as Tom Clancy. That said it's a decent read if you're just passing the time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Val816 | 2/12/2012

    " This prequel to the Mitch Rapp series does a great job of telling the back story of how Mitch became a CIA assassin. It's an exciting thrill-ride with a surprise ending that you'll never expect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margo Delong | 1/29/2012

    " Great book. I think Vince Flynn is doing a great job giving us the background of Mitch Rapp. He's one of my favorite literary characters, along with Alexander Hawke, Dirk Pitt and Jack Ryan. "
