Editorial Reviews


"Flynn is a master--maybe the master--of thrillers in which the pages seem to turn themselves." (Book Reporter)

"Flynn has never been better." (Providence Journal)

The Last Man is arguably Flynn's best work yet. Tight, right and dynamite.” (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

"Certainly, The Last Man is one of Flynn’s most complex installments in the Rapp canon to date. And Flynn, master storyteller that he is, skillfully navigates the reader through the twists and turns of the tale to a conclusion that puts the main plot elements to rest while setting up the next intriguing volume." (Bookreporter)

"Flynn fans will not be disappointed. Absolutely first rate." (Men Reading Books blog)

A little over ten years ago, I was given a book by a coworker. He said, "This is way better than Tom Clancy." I was offended, not because I knew Clancy, but because I knew of him as an author that wrote great narrative blended with incredibly accurate, action-packed stories. My coworker was right. Vince Flynn is an excellent author. He has created a main character who is not afraid to have an opinion or take a stand. Flynn's series of books can be read in any order, and it's nothing short of a treat to discover the background of his characters when reading chronologically earlier titles.

Vince Flynn has written another title, The Last Man, which is as eerily prescient as his earlier Memorial Day. As I began to read the advanced copy from Atria Books, a Simon & Schuster imprint, the news of an actual terrorist strike on the US Embassy in Libya hit the front page of every news site and newspaper.

Flynn's uncanny timing unfolds with his go-to main character, Mitch Rapp, as he is called on to rescue a missing CIA agent from a safe house in Afghanistan. While not exactly what was unveiled in actual world events, the author does capture the very real world of secret operatives working off the radar in hostile territories. Irene Kennedy, the only person able to reign in Rapp's destructive prowess, leaves the safety of her office to aid in the rescue mission. Mitch Rapp and his elite crew strike out to retrieve their target from the hands of the bad guys, while elements within the US and Afghan governments attempt to foil his efforts out of a need to hide their nefarious purposes.

Perhaps the idea is not entirely past its prime, but the idea of a kidnapped, US government official being rescued from terrorists is not a new theme in the recent fiction and non-fiction genres.

I circle the date on my calendar when a Vince Flynn novel is due. The wait is always worth it. This time was no exception.

An intelligence asset in Pakistan goes missing from a safe house. Rapp and his team are called in to assess the damage and find Joe Rickman, the missing operative. Rickman is a high value target - he knows names, dates and places and has planned many of the undercover operations against terrorist groups. Director Kennedy fears the fallout of Rickman's capture and resulting damage to her intelligence network. But even before Rapp can launch an investigation all hell breaks loose on the ground in Pakistan.

'The Last Man' is vintage Flynn - Mitch is front and center of an action packed, tension filled story. Things are never quite as they are portrayed. The writing is as good as the story, confrontations between Mitch, Kennedy and the bad guys du jour is worth the price. The current events aspect is so real you wonder how Flynn gets so close to the terrifying truth.

Mitch Rapp is a hard-core agent, the kind of agent Jack Bauer tries to be, and the kind of man you definitely want to have on your side. As we read in Vince Flynn's newest Rapp novel, The Last Man, Mitch Rapp is the last man you want to come after you if he's not on your side!

Flynn's two prior novels, American Assassin and Kill Shot, took readers back to the Rapp's roots, setting up the background for Rapp's career and solidifying the reputation he comes into in the first novel (third chronologically), Transfer of Power. The Last Man takes place at the end of the series, following Pursuit of Honor. Not only does it bring us up to date with Rapp, it brings us right up to date with today's headlines.

Rapp is called in to assist with the investigation of the disappearance of a deep-cover operative in Afghanistan. His disappearance gets the attention of the CIA due to their fear that, if the secrets in this one agent's head were revealed, many agents in the field would be compromised. The whole thing seems fishy to Rapp from the start, and as he continues his investigation, he is targeted by an assassin and gets in the middle of an intragovernmental mess. But true to what we know of Rapp, he overcomes injuries and setbacks and doggedly pursues truth and justice.

Flynn doesn't disappoint with his detailed fighting action, believable political intrigue, and plot twists to keep the reader guessing. I can relate to Rapp's intolerance for terrorist coddling, and his frustration with bureaucratic garbage. Sure, he makes rash decisions, but he's always right in the end.

Fans of Mitch Rapp will be delighted by The Last Man. Readers who have never read Flynn's books will love it and will want to go back to the beginning to read them all. All will wish and hope that the USA has someone like Rapp to call on when we need him.

Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for the complimentary electronic review copy!

Over the past couple of years, Vince Flynn has been filling in the early, or "hidden," years of Mitch Rapp, the covert CIA agent who many of us hope has a real-world model out there. While the recently published AMERICAN ASSASSIN and KILL SHOT told the story of Rapp's origin, Flynn's latest places him very much in the here and now. Rapp is an uncompromising irresistible force capable of knocking any object in his way off its pins. THE LAST MAN finds Rapp in his 40s, extremely capable, but physically if not emotionally vulnerable as he faces enemies from within and without while in pursuit of a security breach that threatens to expose CIA assets to America's enemies throughout the world.

The novel begins in Jalalabad, Afghanistan, with Rapp in the middle of the aftermath of carnage. Such is not an unusual place for him; what is unusual in this particular case is that he is not the cause of it. The situs is a safe house set up around Joe Rickman, the head of CIA clandestine operations in Afghanistan; the house has been compromised, with Rickman's bodyguards murdered, his all-important computer gone, and Rickman himself missing, an apparent kidnapping victim. Irene Kennedy, the director of the CIA, has tasked Rapp with investigating Rickman's abduction and finding him, no matter what the cost.

Rapp is disturbed by what he finds; there are some things that simply do not add up at the scene. He is not entirely sure of what has actually occurred; what neither he nor Kennedy realize, though, is that Rapp is slowly being drawn into a trap, one in which he will be confronted with one of his deadliest adversaries, someone who has cost Rapp more than perhaps anyone ever has.
