Publisher's Summary

Top-secret data has been stolen from the CIA, and the only man who knows its hiding place is dead. CIA operative Mitch Rapp must race to find the classified information in this blistering novel that picks up where The Last Man left off in Vince Flynn's New York Times best-selling series.
Joseph "Rick" Rickman, former boy wonder at the CIA, stole a massive amount of top-secret and hugely compromising intel concerning classified operations all over the world, offering it (and himself) to the Pakistani secret forces. Only his plans went awry when CIA director Irene Kennedy sent Mitch Rapp to hunt him down. It turns out that killing Rickman didn't solve anything - in fact the nightmare is only intensifying. Rickman stored the potentially devastating data (CIA assets, operatives, agents) somewhere only he knew, and somehow, from beyond the grave, he still poses a mortal threat to America.
Now it's a deadly race as both the Pakistanis and the Americans search for Rickman's accomplices and the information they are slowly leaking to the world. Will Rapp outrun and outthink his enemies, or will the Pakistanis find it first and hold America hostage to their dream of becoming the world's new nuclear superpower?

This sure reads like Vince Flynn!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If they like the Mitch Rapp series, or this genre then without question.

Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to all of the Mitch Rapp books and with the exception of three of them the remaining are read by George Guidall. EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE as always.

Any additional comments?

I began listening with trepidation but quickly dismissed those feelings. If I didn't know better I would have thought this was written by Vince Flynn. There are other reviews that summarized the book and I won't bore anyone with my interpretation. I would like to compliment the author on his ability to continue the series with out it having a counterfeit feel. The book was GREAT, the story THRILLING with so many complexities, inner turmoil, action and more. I really like that characters from previous and even early books were included (Jack Warsh sp?) it gave this book a feel of continuity.

If you found this helpful, please indicate so.
Thank You.

Vince Flynn would be proud of this book

The Survivor lives up to the incredibly high standards Vince Flynn set beginning with Term Limits and continued through his 13 Mitch Rapp novels. Vince Flynn has been my favorite modern author from the time I first read Term Limits in 1999. I've read and reread all of his books. I've also read Kyle Mills' books which are quite good but not Vince Flynn good, I.and was disappointed when he was selected to continue the Mitch Rapp series. Based on The Survivor I was wrong because Mills nailed Vince Flynn's characters and style in The Survivor.

Vince Flynn was the favorite author of Bill Clinton and George W Bush. The latter said Flynn, through his research, probably knew more about the US military and covert agencies and their weapons and secrets than any other civilian. He did his research. Flynn was also a great patriot.

The Survivor brings back not just Mitch Rapp but a number of familiar Flynn characters such as Irene Kennedy, Stan Hurley, Scott Coleman, Jack Warch, Charlie Wicker, bad guy Louis Gould who killed Rapp's wife Anna Reilly in an earlier book, and Senator Barbara Lonsdale. The nature of the characters including Mitch Rapp is just the same as Vince Flynn created them. (Two of the characters, Irene Kennedy and Scott Coleman, played major roles in Term Limits which was written by Flynn before the Mitch Rapp character was created.)

The plot line and the plot complexity as well as the action and suspense were all true to Vince Flynn. Congratulations and thanks to Kyle Mills for a superb book!

Narration is by George Guidall, who narrated most of the audiobook versions of Vince Flynn novels. The narration, like the novel, is outstanding. Guidall is the voice of Mitch Rapp and certainly Stan Hurley also. Guidall has an interesting 7 minute discussion after the end of the book.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Survivor without reservation. I love this book!
