#1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn's Kill Shot is now available from Encore for only $14.99!

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 conviction 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, is not prone to 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. Download and start listening now!

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 2/13/2014

    " Another spellbinding Mitch Rapp spy thriller. I just wish the author would clean up his language. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robbie | 2/3/2014

    " The only thing that would make Vince Flynn's books better would be more of them! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John L Evans | 2/1/2014

    " Only a fair sniper/spy/assassin story. Predictable retread plot and characters. Would have been great if written 50 years ago, before the story had been done 50 times. Author should stick to action and stay away from trying to portray romance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anita | 1/31/2014

    " Still not thrilled with the whole prequel concept, but if you haven't read Vince Flynn before, you can change the order. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex Daus | 1/29/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meggie | 1/23/2014

    " This is the second part of Mitch Rapp series. The main storyline was action packed, full of suspense and intensity. I loved it all. Mitch is really unique, fresh character. A reader can't predict his actions and decisions, that's why I like him. Vince Flynn wrote an excellent second book, I wasn't bored for a second. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelli Stephenson | 1/16/2014

    " 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 Anne | 1/3/2014

    " Don't you hate it when you get all caught up on an author's series and then have to wait with the legions of other fans for the next book to come out? Four and a half stars for this edge-of-your-seat thriller. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dave | 1/3/2014

    " Thrillers are not really my genre but this one helped make a long busy trip fly by. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rjames1999 | 1/3/2014

    " Another solid Mitch Rapp story. Interesting material on a character that we are all familiar with since this one is in the prequel category. Very abrupt ending had me scratching my head a little but it does lend to some interesting ideas. Recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bkbowles | 12/28/2013

    " Excellent Read!! I didnt want to put it down. As always strong characters and good plots. Highly recommend. "

    " book two in Rapp series after AA. like the others, easy page turner "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 12/10/2013

    " I enjoy Vince Flynn,he's one of my favorite authors. This book traces the early career of Mitch Rapp. A little slow in the beginnning but then it hooks you and I found myself staying up way too late to read "just one more chapter" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vaughn | 11/26/2013

    " Audio version - Narrator George Guidall makes this novel extremely enjoyable. With the last two books, the author is now filling in some of the past history of his hero, Mitch Rapp, and I find it fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Seth Kaplan | 10/30/2013

    " Another fun yarn from Flynn, telling much more of the back story of Mitch Rapp. Rapp continues to be the funnest spy since Jack Ryan. Almost impossible to put this book down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doug | 10/23/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 10/6/2013

    " Not great. Fills in background about Mitch Rapp's early career but certainly not one of Flynn's better Rapp novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cara | 9/19/2013

    " In the intro Flynn reveals he has been fighting cancer. Interestingly, he goes back to Mitch Rapp's beginning year. Mission involved justice for thise involved in 1988 Pam An willing where Terry & her sister's parents were killed by terrorists "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill S. | 7/8/2013

    " 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 Rick Kettner | 6/8/2013

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betsy | 5/28/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nick | 5/20/2012

    " Disappointing. The hero spends most of the book nursing a gunshot wound and hiding. Unsatisfying ending. Flynn can do better than this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff Sellers | 4/22/2012

    " I have yet to read a better author in this Genre "
