Vince Flynn has done it again! The Last Man is an adrenaline packed thrill ride that has more twists and turns than the world's great roller coasters. The book finds American assassin Mitch Rapp knee deep in a in conspiracy and mystery in post-Bin Laden Afghanistan. When Joe Rickman, the CIA's top head of clandestine operations in Afghanistan is kidnapped, a tsunami of epic proportions is set off in the various branches of governments and intelligence agencies around the region and in the United States. Who was behind this coordinated attack and how to recover Rickman becomes the CIA's top priority, for in the head of Rickman lies secrets that could cripple the clandestine operations of America and her allies. What begins as a simple mission gets more and more complicated as Rapp and his team get further into the operation. What makes this and every other Vince Flynn novel so good is the detail and realism that Flynn brings to the project. There have been many in the government, military and clandestine organizations over the years who have questioned where Flynn gets his information, because it is startlingly accurate. Flynn's novel shows some of the serious pitfalls in the U.S. government's current policy of reintegration in post-Bin Laden Afghanistan. While reading my pre-release copy of The Last Man, from Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, Libya was brutally attacked. Flynn's novel helps readers understand some of the current tensions in the Middle East, with a look at the Taliban, Iranians, Pakistanis, Afghans, Russians, Swiss banks, and the United States. The Last Man is a welcome reunion of Mitch Rapp and our current day. Flynn's last two novels, American Assassin, and Kill Shot, were essentially prequels to the story of Rapp, and a very welcome addition to the narrative. Fans of Mitch Rapp will enjoy seeing what the assassin has been up to and enjoy catching up with a number of favorite characters along the way. The Last Man isn't Flynn's best novel, but it certainly a great read and a wonderful addition to the Mitch Rapp library. As in all of Flynn's novels the language is a bit rough with plenty of military bravado and assassin angst thrown in. The detailed descriptions of torture and assassinations may make some readers squeamish. All in all, The Last Man, is a great read that opens the eyes of readers into the complexities of the continuing war on terror. I received a complimentary e-book of The Last Man, from Atria Books, a division of Simon & Shuster for purposes of this review.

This is my first time preordering on my nook, and looks like it will be my last... was going to be reading this while waiting for my wife to go into labor, but i'll just tell her she's going to have to hold our daughter in a little while longer. At least Mitch is back. 5 stars for the book, minus 2 stars for B&N

I've read all the books in this serise. This one is my favorite by far. It answers some questions that I had from earlier books, but gives us some new charcters to look forward to seeing in the future. I highly recomend reading it, even if have never read any of the others.

The Last Man by Vince Flynn is a compelling story that gripped me right from the start. He brilliantly executed it in a manner that provided a constant flow of suspense, all prerequisites for good thrillers. His characters are well-developed and portray their human sides in a manner that make them so true to life Mitch Rapp reminds me of Gavin in Triple Agent Double Cross. This is a book of smooth writing, fabulous descriptions, amazing dialogue and gripping pacing, which are the elements that made this story an accomplished piece of writing.

What the heck? This was to be out November 13 - and it is not ready for the NOOK? How long did it sit on someone's desk before they said - oh, oh. We sold a bunch of these for the NOOK - guess we had better get going. Doesn't someone else sell electric books? Well sure there is an error - don't want a bad review do we?

Got The Last Man on my nook on the 13 with no problem. As with all Flynn's books it was great. Can't wait until the next one.

The next installment in the Mitch Rapp series is better than the last but follows the same pattern as the previous installments. “The Last Man” does throw in a few curveballs but overall it’s similar to its predecessors. While the action isn’t as front and center as some of the better books in the series the author does do a good job of building suspense. If you liked the other Rapp series books you’ll probably like this one for the same reasons.

As always, a great well written Mitch Rapp novel. I read it with a lot of regret and sadness knowing that this will be the last novel from Vince Flynn. He provided me and the many, many people I shared him with with intelligent and entertaining reading. You can tell much about an author through their writing, and Flynn was an honorable, smart, & patriotic American. My one hope is that there really are some "Mitch Rapps" out their in the world protecting our country! My sincere admiration and condolences to the Flynn family.

Loved this book and the series. Vince Flynn was writing the 14th in this series and as you know he has since passed away from cancer. Vince Flynn, his wonderful writing and the character of Mitch Rapp will be missed.

I love the Mitch Rapp series, but some of them get silly or overly Arab. This one had a great mix of the clandestine, some territory not previously covered and just a tad drama. I like all the characters in this one, too. I enjoyed this Mitch Rapp book above all others (and I've read them all).

A very exciting and well written book that all lovers of Vince Flynn will find highly entertaining. Mitch Rapp does it again and almost gets killed doing it. I've read all of Flynn's books and I love them all.

Vince Flynn is BACK!!! After a sub-par Kill Shot, Flynn is back at the top of his game. I'll chalk up the previous effort to the fact that he was battling cancer. This latest edition brings Mitch Rapp back to the present after two prequels, and the story is quite relevant given the current climate in our country as well as the Middle East. A great read!

Who says that 13 is an unlucky number? This is classic Mitch Rapp with murder, mayhem, suspense and excitement! Keeps you reading from page 1 until the very last page. Will Mitch die or be permanently sidelined? Read the book to find out! It's well worth the time!

I thought this book was great. I was happy to be back in current time although I enjoyed the two previous books that were set back in Mitch's earlier life. At some point I would love to read Mitch and Donatella's story. Vince Flynn is the best with this genre.

Great book! Could not put it down. I love that Vince Flynn doesnt make each subsequent book shorter and shorter like some other series authors. Cant wait for the Rapp movies and for more books!
