“In the world of black-op thrillers, Mitch Rapp continues to be among the best of the best” (Booklist, starred review), and he returns in the #1 New York Times bestselling series alone and targeted by a country that is supposed to be one of America’s closest allies.
After 9/11, the United States made one of the most secretive and dangerous deals in its history—the evidence against the powerful Saudis who coordinated the attack would be buried and in return, King Faisal would promise to keep the oil flowing and deal with the conspirators in his midst.
But when the king’s own nephew is discovered funding ISIS, the furious President gives Rapp his next mission: he must find out more about the high-level Saudis involved in the scheme and kill them. The catch? Rapp will get no support from the United States.
Forced to make a decision that will change his life forever, Rapp quits the CIA and assembles a group of independent contractors to help him complete the mission. They’ve barely begun unraveling the connections between the Saudi government and ISIS when the brilliant new head of the intelligence directorate discovers their efforts. With Rapp getting too close, he threatens to go public with the details of the post-9/11 agreement between the two countries. Facing an international incident that could end his political career, the President orders America’s intelligence agencies to join the Saudis’ effort to hunt the former CIA man down.
Rapp, supported only by a team of mercenaries with dubious allegiances, finds himself at the center of the most elaborate manhunt in history. With white-knuckled twists and turns leading to “an explosive climax” (Publishers Weekly), Enemy of the State is an unputdownable thrill ride that will keep you guessing until the final page.
A bit too Captain America
A little too ‘Captain America’ for my taste. The plot doesn’t make a whole lot of sense and the scenarios that spark long series of action seem far fetched at best. Still, it is nice to have a writer highlight the massive hypocrisy of the US relationship with Saudi Arabia.
Changing the Narrator completely ruined it
I have been listening to the whole series and the narrator has been amazing. Then you swap to someone who does a poor job differentiating between characters makes it almost miserable to listen. This will most likely be the last one I listen to if the narrator is the same for the next few books.
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?!!!
I can’t believe the ridiculous decision that the publisher has made to change narrator. George Guidall!! This is the single biggest mistake I have ever witnessed in a book series that I am a massive fan of. It was tough to get used to Kyle Mills as he is simply not quite Vince Flynn, but Vince is gone and this is the only way we fans will get new Mitch Rapp stories. One thing that made the new author somewhat familiar was the publisher using THE SAME NARRATOR! I see now that even this is changed. PLEASE PLEASE RE-RELEASE THIS AUDIOBOOK WITH GEORGE GUIDALL’S STELLAR AND FAMILIAR VOICE. I have way too much trouble just trying to ascertain who is speaking to even concentrate on the plot. I own every single Mitch Rapp novel in unabridged audio and this is the first time I have had to stop listening and await either the release of the paperback printed version or a new audiobook WITH THE CORRECT NARRATOR!!! Please fix this, I don’t think Vince Flynn, if he was still living, would appreciate not approve of this narrator change. Mr. Brick is accomplished in his own right and is great in some authors works. Any Mitch Rapp story, however, IS NOT ONE OF THOSE WORKS!!
