After 9/11, the United States made one of the most secretive and dangerous deals in its history. The evidence against the powerful Saudis who coordinated the attack would be buried. In return, King Faisal would promise to keep the oil flowing and deal with the conspirators in his midst.
When the king's own nephew is discovered funding ISIS, the president suspects that the Saudis never intended to live up to their agreement. He decides that the royalty needs to be sent a message and that Mitch Rapp is just the man to deliver it. The catch? America can't be seen moving against an ally. Rapp will be on his own. Forced to make a decision that will change his life forever, Rapp quits the CIA and assembles a group of independent contractors to help him complete the mission.
They've barely begun unraveling the connections between the Saudi government and ISIS when the brilliant new head of the intelligence directorate discovers their efforts. With Rapp getting too close, he threatens to go public with the details of the post-9/11 agreement between the two countries.
Facing an international incident that could end his political career, the president orders America's intelligence agencies to join the Saudis' effort to hunt the former CIA man down.
Rapp, supported only by a team of mercenaries with dubious allegiances, finds himself at the center of the most elaborate manhunt in history. It's only a matter of time before he's caught or killed. Will it be enough to turn the tables on the Saudis and clear his name?

I'm Afraid Mitch Rapp is dead.
First and foremost I RETURNED a MITCH RAPP NOVEL...WOW...even I can't believe it..but I did. The unabridged version anyway. In my mind anyway. Story is eh...and the character of Mitch Rapp is sadly gone for me. The performance is seriously lacking except this abridged version. It's read by the stall ward Armand Schultz. I like Armand and George when they were together reading the unabridged and abridged versions. People don't remember that Armand was the first that they kept on with "The Third Option", abridged version...others have read the earlier novels, and were really bad...I can also remember how excited Vince was when he heard that he landed Guidall. It's a sad day for me. I LOVE this character and the books. George Guidall passed on reading this one and says that "He's trying to lesson his work load?" I am in doubt because I noticed from the last one :Order to Kill" by Mills, George didn't seem to be ..performing, just reading it" I had an eerie sense then...So my question became...Why Scott Brick to replace George? I'll never know. I never liked Scott Brick. I'm not sure why they didn't just promote Armand. And if they wanted to keep Armand there perhaps because he's the main performer for Thor's Scot Harvath, I'm just guessing...anyway...I'm deeply saddened..
I did listen to it...and I did get both copies and in fact I became a Mitch Rapp Ambassador this year and received an early copy of the book and read it..like I said eh..I don't exactly like the way he turned Rapp away from Home and the CIA and also using the other characters from back stories. ESPECIALLY becoming involved with Claudia Morel??? Really?? Give me a break...It makes so much more sense that he would stay in the relationship that was he was developing with Maria Rivera..SHE was in his world or I could've gotten by with Donatella...NOT Morel that is just moronic...she was involved with KILLING his wife...I don't care that she felt bad or was tearful about the whole thing...I'd place money that Vince would have NEVER gone there...It doesn't make any sense..
And choosing Scott Brick? Sorry bad choice in my humble opinion...he has this like breathless style that is so irritating...aside from that the story is stupid with the characters, plot and..I absolutely did not enjoy Rapp disregarding his confidants, and HIS TEAM..Scott Coleman, Joe Maslick, Slick Wicker...etc..for a bunch of ragtags...yeah I know Donatella is in this one, and Both of Mills' characters, Grisha and the other guy..(not so memorable) See!!
anyway...Just not very good just like Order to Kill...I didn't enjoy that one either....Gimme a break a 25 year old punk ...man handling Scott Coleman?? Please.....full disclosure I did enjoy the Survivor to a point..However.It's been downhill since then...
All I'm saying...

Can't have rainbows without rain
I've read or have listened to all the books in the series and this one was my least favorite. Perhaps it was the narration which was okay (so use to George) or the fact that it's further removed from Vince's influence but it seemed rushed and shallow. I don't want to give away details but the new characters are bland and underdeveloped. The ending itself is short and not "Rapp-like". To me the book felt like a deadline was given and the team scrambeled to meet it. It would stand alone as a featurette.
