"On a mission to hunt down the men responsible for the Pan Am Lockerbie terrorist attack, Mitch Rapp has been steadily working his way through a list of men. With each kill, the tangled network of monsters responsible for the slaughter of 270 civilians becomes increasingly clear. His next target is a plump Libyan diplomat who is currently in Paris without a single bodygruard. Rapp finds him asleep in his bed and unprotected. With conviction of the man's guilt, he easily sends two bullets into the man's skull. Suddenly everything changes. The door to the hotel room is kicked open and gunfire erupts all around Rapp. In an instant the hunter has become the hunted. Rapp is left wounded and must flee for his life. The next morning, the news breaks in Washington that Libya's Oil Minister, three innocent civilians, and four unidentified men have been killed. As the finger pointing begins, Rapp's handlers have only one choice: deny any responsibility. Their newest secret weapon is now a liability, and hopefully he's gone for good. But it will soon become clear that there is nothing more dangerous than a wounded and cornered Mitch Rapp"-- Cover verso.

The Mitch Rapp books by Vince Flynn area always good. I haven't read them in order, so to see the take on the relationships between characters in this book is a bit confusing, especially Rapp's relationship with Irene Kennedy (his boss) and Stan Hurley (his "mentor"). I didn't understand this was a prequel, even though it was written after the early books. No matter. If you like the other books by Flynn, you'll enjoy this too.

Another fast spy thriller with lots of killing. Still leaves a little bit hanging considering it now jumps ahead to the original books written. We don't get a lot of closure with his relationship and the demise of the "friendly" spy on his side...supposedly.

The book is very well written but somehow I had a hart time trying to fit everything I remembered about the main characters (Mitch Rapp, Hurley, Kennedy, etc.) into the "one year" the author keeps making references to. Also, it sounded too much like an echo of Ludlum's Bourne series

A great book with lots of action! It was a little confusing at times because there were a lot of characters, but overall I really enjoyed this book and will look for more books from this author.

An excellent read. The Rapp prequels are terrific.

Another Flynn winner. With this writer you know what you're going to get and look forward to not putting the book down.
