Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn is back with another nail-biting political thriller that follows the young Mitch Rapp on a deadly mission to hunt down the men responsible for the Pan Am Lockerbie terrorist attack.

For months, Mitch Rapp has been steadily working his way through a list of men, bullet by bullet. With each kill, the tangled network of monsters responsible for the slaughter of 270 civilians becomes increasingly clear. He is given his next target: a plump Libyan diplomat who is prone to drink and is currently in Paris without a single bodyguard.

Rapp finds him completely unprotected and asleep in his bed. With confidence in his well-honed skills and conviction of the man's guilt, he easily sends a bullet into the man's skull. But in the split second it takes the bullet to leave the silenced pistol, 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 has been killed along with three innocent civilians and four unidentified men. The French authorities are certain that the gunman is wounded and on the loose in Paris. As the finger pointing begins, Rapp's handlers have only one choice-deny any responsibility for the incident and pray that their newest secret weapon stays that way, avoiding capture and dying quietly. One person in the group, however, is not prone to leaving things to chance. Rapp has become a liability, and he absolutely cannot be allowed to be taken alive by the French authorities. But it will soon become clear that nothing is more dangerous than a wounded and cornered Mitch Rapp.

    It would be really hard to not like Mitch Rapp. In this one, his sanctioned mission of retribution gets sidetracked when he's set up, but he's just too darn competent to die when he's supposed to. His new self-assigned mission? Find out who sold him out and...yeah, more retribution. This one's a lot of fun for fans of this sort of thing, and I enjoyed every minute of it. There's nothing new in it in terms of its plot, but it covers familiar ground in solid fashion and establishes some backstory for Rapp himself, given that it's a prequel type of thing. The ending was a bit abrupt, but my only real complaint here is that most of the bad guys are one-dimensional and stereotypical, but that just makes it easier to root against the slimy bastages, I guess.

    This is the second book in the series, and tells us part of the early story of Mitch Rapp which was started in American Assasin.Whilst it is the second book in the series it was one of the last ones Vince Flynn wrote before his untimely death from Prostate Cancer - such a big loss! I think I enjoyed this one more than the other two in the series, and am most definitely hooked on the series. If you enjoy espionage books, or action based books - this is the series for you, I can thoroughly recommend it. In this one Mitch has been sabotaged by someone and has to try to get himself out off a tough situation before he is taken out! He is not sure who he can trust, but I'd still back Mitch Rapp any day, not someone to underestimate!

  • (4/5)
    A decent spy thriller, but I did not enjoy as much as the first one, American Assassin. This story is set in Paris, though it felt as if it could have been almost anywhere. A CIA hit goes bad, and the French police, French spies, and American spies are all in the mix trying to determine what exactly happened. Decent storytelling, but a little too vanilla for my tastes.

    I was not expecting that ending, but Kill Shot was still an entertaining read. I'm now looking forward to picking up book three.

    great assassin political thriller
  • (4/5)
    i love the mitch rapp series and couldn't put the book down. it's kindof the second book (or prequel) of the rapp character. it was interesting to see where the characters started. now the one right before this is all about the training and this one takes place right after that and establishing rapp as an assassin. can't wait for another.

    Book Title: "Kill Shot”Author: Vince FlynnPublished By: Atria BooksAge Recommended: 18+Reviewed By: Kitty BullardRaven Rating: 3.5Review: I’m not sure if it’s the fact that I’m not into this genre or if the book just lacked the ‘umph’ I was looking for, but I was unable to really get into it. However, if you are into espionage and CIA hijinks then you’ll very likely enjoy this one. If this is a genre of choice for you I’d say give a try anyway.

    Enjoyed it from beginning to end. I am currently looking to listen to another one of his books.

    Read the book when first published, now listened to the audiobook, both good.
  • (3/5)
    The actor talked too fast. It was hard for names to sink in before he went to something else. This is probably a book that would be better if read than listened to. Then I go go back and forth and figure out the characters.

    Never a dull moment, no useless chatter. All the puzzle pieces fit together at the end.

    Non-stop action!!! Mitch Rapp is a realistic, albeit fictional, hero.
  • (4/5)
    I entered this book after I read it. It started with a prologue, and I skipped it. Last time I read a prologue from this series, it was a spoiler! Hate that. This book reminded me of the bad Tom Clancy Jack Ryan Jr books. Jack Ryan Jr has magic where every decision he makes works out. I don't like it in those books. I am impressed with Vince Flynn because he pulls it off. Good stuff.1,268 members; 3.91 average rating; 1/24/2020

    Interesting but hard to follow with so many characters and alias'.

    The action was good, sometimes bogged down in repeating information.

    Very entertaining full of suspense and action. Very good narrator

    Good follow up to the first one. I can say I’m hooked.
  • (5/5)
    Great book. The narrator was also very good, with two minor annoyances: the word "foyer" appears a number of times in this book (and the book is set in France) but the narrator mispronounced it every time, and he also can't pronounce consummate, instead reading it as "con-summit".

    Mitch Rapp is a badass excellent book well done .
  • (4/5)
    Overall very solid, good read.

    My only issue is, as many people have said, that the end send to be wrapped up to quick. There were a lot of questions in my mind.
  • (4/5)
    A much better effort than the previous American Assassin novel in the Mitch Rapp series. Flynn has spent the last year battling prostate cancer, so any effort from him was a welcome sight. Overcoming a somewhat plodding middle after a quick start, this plot came together nicely at the end and really showcased what Flynn was trying to do with the first AA novel, show the beginnings of Mitch Rapp and what shaped him into the assassin he became. Flynn really pulls that off here.
  • (4/5)
    I'm really enjoying these Mitch Rapp prequels. Aside from giving up a backstory on how Rapp became who he is, they are also more unpredictable because young Rapp is obviously more prone to mistakes and doubts than the perfect CIA assassin we know and love. As a bonus you get the backstories of other characters from the series- Stansfield, Kennedy, Riley, and Hurley, seeing them younger and more involved in the nitty gritty of the operations. A few gruesome scenes, but it would not be a Vince Flynn story otherwise.

    Sitting here writing this review is bittersweet. Yes, this was another good Mitch Rapp book. No, it wasn't the best, but unfortunately for me it will be the last. Due to the untimely death of Vince Flynn I will not get to enjoy anymore banter between Mitch and Irene or Hurley, and of course the late great Stansfield. But I digress; this book takes off after the events in American Assassin. Rapp is set out on his own to take down (ok, Kill, assassinated, eliminate, or whatever you want to call it) a list of known terrorist or associates/helpers of terrorist groups. Everything has been going just fine for Rapp, even his love life is looking up, until Paris and now his not sure who to trust or if he should trust anyone. During a routine even easy assassination Rapp is ambushed and starts to think that he is set up. In fact, he was set up just not by who he thought. Using the skills Hurley has taught him Rapp turns the tables and tries to find out if he was set up. Unfortunately, one of Hurley's own men goes above and beyond and tries to take out Rapp. After several tense days, Mitch reaches out to Irene and with Stansfield in tow the whole story comes out and true to Rapp, Hurley, and Flynn standards justice is swift and permanent. If you enjoy spy thrillers then you will like Vince Flynn and take it from some one who listened to all the books and you haven't read or listened to any start with "prequels" and start the originally published series I think you'll enjoy it.

    This is the first book from this series I've read and was surprised to find out that it's number 12. This was good thriller with a bit of mystery thrown in. Rapp is the guy you root for and the one making a difference.In this one he is betrayed and he is almost killed. Lots of trust is needed in this game, and now he doesn't know who put his trust in. This makes everyone a little nervous. The trap was sprung, and a terrible mess was left in Paris where a foreign oil minister was shot, his prostitute, 4 apparent guards 2 hotel guests and a bell boy. A very big mess and it was all laid at Rapp's feet. Rapp needs to clear his name and find who set him up and take care of business.
