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 bestselling 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?

Not as expected, but Mitch Rapp's profile elucidated authority. Yet, a detailed description of his overt looks (apart from his eyes and hair) had been missed. The novel focused primarily on the Rickman files and although the descriptions of Irene Kennedy, Coleman and the entire team had been impressive, the initial failed mission had been disconcerting. Involving the Frenchman, Louis Gould hadn't been a wise approach for starters; and neither had been the involvement of the Stan Hurley considering his ill health.

I've never read Vince Flynn before and didn't realize that this book wasn't written by him. The book was very boring and I couldn't get past page 49. Whoever wrote this book doesn't know how to grab a reader's attention. Since I bought this book I just threw it in the garbage.

I like the Mitch Rapp character but despite the constant action in the book, the plot was very thin and the writing was not the best

Slow, boring. Lots of political intrigue, but low on action. I'm being generous w/ 3 *'s.

I have read every vince flynn/mitch rapp I could find. Enjoyed them all. Vince Flynn is amongst my favorite authors (Jack Higgins,James Patterson,Tom Clancy,Robert Ludlum). His is a writing style that will be sorely missed. RIP.

Seems to me the publisher is playing games since Vince passed away some 8 months ago. By now, certainly, they must know where the book stood when he passed and must be in a position to decide whether to finish the book and to publish or not. The inferences to my supposition should be obvious to all.

Sad that it will also likely be the last....
