THE NEW YORK TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER For months, Mitch Rapp has been steadily working his way - bullet by bullet - through a list of the men responsible for the slaughter of 270 civilians, including his own girlfriend, in the Pan Am Lockerbie bombing. His next target - a Libyan diplomat - should be easy. Prone to drink and currently in Paris without a bodyguard, Rapp quickly tracks the man down and sends a bullet into his skull while he's sleeping. 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. When the news breaks that Libya's Oil Minister has been killed along with three innocent civilians and four unidentified men, the French authorities are certain that a wounded gunman is still on the loose in Paris. As the finger-pointing begins, Rapp's handlers have only one choice - deny any responsibility for the incident and race to do damage control. Rapp has become a liability, and he must not be taken alive by the French authorities. But alone in Paris, on the run from the authorities and from his own employers, Mitch Rapp must prepare to fight for his life. AMERICAN ASSASSIN, book one in the series, is soon to be a MAJOR MOTION PICTURE starring Dylan O'Brien (Maze Runner), Taylor Kitsch (True Detective) and Michael Keaton. Praise for the Mitch Rapp series 'Sizzles with inside information and CIA secrets' Dan Brown 'A cracking, uncompromising yarn that literally takes no prisoners' The Times 'Vince Flynn clearly has one eye on Lee Child's action thriller throne with this twist-laden story...instantly gripping' Shortlist 'Action-packed, in-your-face, adrenalin-pumped super-hero macho escapist fiction that does exactly what it says on the label' Irish Independent

It would be really hard to not like Mitch Rapp. In this one, his sanctioned mission of retribution gets sidetracked when he's set up, but he's just too darn competent to die when he's supposed to. His new self-assigned mission? Find out who sold him out and...yeah, more retribution. This one's a lot of fun for fans of this sort of thing, and I enjoyed every minute of it. There's nothing new in it in terms of its plot, but it covers familiar ground in solid fashion and establishes some backstory for Rapp himself, given that it's a prequel type of thing. The ending was a bit abrupt, but my only real complaint here is that most of the bad guys are one-dimensional and stereotypical, but that just makes it easier to root against the slimy bastages, I guess.

This is the second boo...

This is the second book in the series, and tells us part of the early story of Mitch Rapp which was started in American Assasin.Whilst it is the second book in the series it was one of the last ones Vince Flynn wrote before his untimely death from Prostate Cancer - such a big loss! I think I enjoyed this one more than the other two in the series, and am most definitely hooked on the series. If you enjoy espionage books, or action based books - this is the series for you, I can thoroughly recommend it. In this one Mitch has been sabotaged by someone and has to try to get himself out off a tough situation before he is taken out! He is not sure who he can trust, but I'd still back Mitch Rapp any day, not someone to underestimate!

A decent spy thriller, but I did not enjoy as much as the first one, American Assassin. This story is set in Paris, though it felt as if it could have been almost anywhere. A CIA hit goes bad, and the French police, French spies, and American spies are all in the mix trying to determine what exactly happened. Decent storytelling, but a little too vanilla for my tastes.

A much better effort t...

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.

This is the first book...

This is the first book from this series I've read and was surprised to find out that it's number 12. This was good thriller with a bit of mystery thrown in. Rapp is the guy you root for and the one making a difference. In this one he is betrayed and he is almost killed. Lots of trust is needed in this game, and now he doesn't know who put his trust in. This makes everyone a little nervous. The trap was sprung, and a terrible mess was left in Paris where a foreign oil minister was shot, his prostitute, 4 apparent guards 2 hotel guests and a bell boy. A very big mess and it was all laid at Rapp's feet. Rapp needs to clear his name and find who set him up and take care of business.
