#1 New York Times bestselling author of American Assassin—now a major motion picture
America’s most powerful leader becomes its prime target, a “nightmarish” (Booklist) scenario made all-too-real in this Mitch Rapp thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn.
The stately calm of a Washington morning is shattered when a group of terrorists descends, killing dozens and taking nearly one hundred hostages as they massacre their way into the White House. The Secret Service evacuates the president to an underground bunker—and while officials argue over how to negotiate with the enemy, Mitch Rapp, the CIA’s top counterterrorism operative, moves stealthily among the hidden corridors and secret passageways of the executive mansion, to save the hostages before the terrorists reach the president. But another adversary—someone within Washington’s elite—is determined to see Rapp’s rescue mission fail.

Couldnt finish this one
I have purchased and listened to 5 other Vince Flynn books prior to this one. Enjoyed each and every one from start to finish. However, every book was narrated by George Guidall. He is fantastic and gave each character a unique and believable voice and personality. After listening to the previous books expertly narrated by Guidall, I couldn't bear to listen to this one - didn't even make it past the first chapter. Narrator is dry, monotone, uninteresting. Please, please, please have Guidall do all of your future books!! I'll pay extra...
While the book itself might be a great read, the narrator couldn't keep my attention. I don't know if this represents the narrator's normal speech pattern, but it comes across so unnatural, that it sounds mechanical. It literally sounded like the narrator was trying to read every syllable. Try as I might, I couldn’t establish any flow in listening to the book, because the delivery was so choppy.
Bring back George
Another great story from Vince Flynn, the 3rd installment of the Mitch Rapp series. But I suggest reading it rather than buying the audiobook. Nick Sullivan is a terrible narrator. He mispronounces words, monotones most of the story and when he tries to create a voice for a character it feels forced and off. Unfortunatley he also narrates the 4th Mitch Rapp novel "The 3rd option" which I will just personally read. I was able to make it through the audio version of this but just barely. Please bring back George Guidell!
