Seems like a long wait since American Assassin, but worth it. This installment continues to give us the background story of Mitch Rapp's early days with Stansfield, Kennedy, Hurly, and in this novel much more on the character of Victor who first appeared in American Assassin. The story works as a stand alone, but when taken within the context of the entire Mitch Rapp series, provides more detail on the characters we have grown accustomed to. Mr. Flynn maintains his great story telling and is complimented by the competent narration of George Guidall. Recommended both for new readers and devoted followers of Vince Flynn's work.

Would you listen to Kill Shot again? Why?
Yes, I usually wait a year or two to re-listen to a book, but it is rare that I listen to the same story twice. This one goes on the list though.
Any additional comments?
Vince Flynn is my favorite author. I was sad to see the medical news, and was a little worried about the quality of this book. It was great! This one has vaulted to the 2nd or 3rd on my best of this series (Consent to Kill will be hard to ever knock off #1).

Would you try another book written by Vince Flynn or narrated by George Guidall?
Yes, book good narration poor
What other book might you compare Kill Shot to, and why?
Most from the genre: leather, Robotham, Ryan, Baldaccie etc. - fast, pacey etc
Would you be willing to try another one of George Guidall’s performances?
Yes, but probably only to confirm my dislike for his performance!
Was Kill Shot worth the listening time?
Yes, it was great to listen to whilst doing the gardening
Any additional comments?
This narrator completely spoiled what could have been a good book. He emphasised the wrong words in sentences, took breaths in the middle of sentences and didn't even bother to try different voices for the characters. Overall he was appalling.

Firstly George Guidalls voice lends perfectly to this book he truly is excellent and his foreign accents come across as natural with each character. As I said his voice really adds to the characters but especially to Stan Hurley!
This book has the right balance of what you'd need to keep you hooked and listening.
If you've started on the Michael Rapp series, (American Assassin) I garrentee you won't be disappointed. I've listend to all of them and now re listening to them the second time round which, for me is unheard of! But I've struggled to find another author as good at Clandestine espionage novels. Yes I had read Chris Ryan and Andy Mcnab and I still stand by that.
