#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.

Stop the madness over the narrator!!!
I have listened to several hundred audio books over the last couple of decades and have never stopped a book just because I couldn't stand the narrator!! This particular narrator is certainly not the best but he is also far from the worst I've listened to. Besides if the book is good enough you quickly get sucked into the story and completely forget about anything else. This is my first book in this series and I enjoyed it very much. I am a huge fan of Jack Reacher and found Mitch Rapp an ok substitute until the next Reacher book comes out. I'm very much looking forward to the rest of the books in this series, even if it is with the same narrator!!
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.
