    About a week ago I finished “American Assassin” – the first (prequel) book in the “Mitch Rapp” thriller series by Vince Flynn. It is being made into a movie that will be released this September (2017). I enjoyed it so much that I immediately bought the second prequel novel “Kill Shot” on my Amazon Kindle. I am so glad that I did because the second book was even better than the first one. In this second book Flynn has evolved as a wr...

    It's very difficult to write a good prequel (cf. the Phantom Menace) and especially a good espionage thriller prequel (cf. Tom Clancy's Red Rabbit), so it's impressive that Vince Flynn has written two in a row. The author has to create suspense and jeopardy when you already know that certain key characters have to survive the book to show up in the stories covered in the earlier books.In the previous book in the series, Flynn gave us the origins ...

    Mitch Rapp is tasked to take out a Libyan tied to terrorism in a Paris hotel. He quickly realizes as the bullets fly he has been set up. Wounded, he searches for the traitor in his camp. A thrill-a-minute ride that keeps the pages flying.

    I'll admit it - I'm hooked on this series by Vince Flynn.It's not just the Mitch Rapp character that continues to grow and develop, but the whole team and that's what makes this such a compelling story.Whereas American Assassin covered Mitch's introduction to the team, in Kill Shot they are almost torn apart as secrets, lies, and betrayals are revealed and Mitch goes on the run to prove his innocence - or risk being killed by the very same people...

    Mitch Rapp is by far my favorite literary crush. Not exactly profound, I know, but I love him. This was another great effort by the always wonderful Vince Flynn. His writing always sucks you in so that you are part of the action. This was one of my favorites yet, and evoked a bit of the old school thriller writers like Ludlum. From the beginning, the hunter becomes the hunted. In this sequel to American Assassin,Flynn connects the dots in the Mit...

    Vince Flynn has a very incredible detailed way to take you into the action that really open your excitement from the beginning to the end. If you enjoy political drama with lots of action and characters that feel so real you can't stop reading Kill Shot is a riveting read along with Vince's other books. His main character Mitch Rapp is an american hero who understands what it takes to fight terrorism and dam the politicians. His boss (Director of...

    Mitch Rapp is back! It’s just one more kill, a Libyan oil minister with a dark past, but now Rapp has gone from hunter to hunted. Who can he trust? Lone gunman are often just that - alone. Multiple international interests, action, violence, sex, betrayal - this felt like the best of old Clancy (maybe better). This was stay-up-too-late-and-completely-fuck-up-my-day good. I woke up in a frenzy to get the next book. Oh yes, it’s time to Rapp.

    This is the second book in the chronology of Mitch Rapp, although it was published well after the third book. I worried about being disappointed, but found the plot was every bit as good as the first - even twistier. A good cast of believable characters & motives that wound up wonderfully!Matt Helm & Quarry are getting a run for their money. On to the third, Transfer of Power.

    What happens when a character ages faster than his author? Think Tom Clancy’s “Jack Ryan,” Michael Connelly’s “Harry Bosch,” or here Vince Flynn’s “Mitch Rapp.” A corollary to this question could be what happens when a new author takes over a character: like “Jason Bourne,” who has recently been disfigured to the eternal posthumous embarrassment of the great Robert Ludlum. Ryan was promoted to President and the series limped...

    I'm not sure if I can even be objective anymore when reading Vince Flynn. I love his writing, I love Mitch Rapp, I love everything about his books. I was very happy to have Thomas Stansfield back in the game in this one!

    This was my second book in the Mitch Rapp series and certainly not my last. It's Flynn's second prequel, and the sequel to American Assassin. I find the Rapp series very addictive and entertaining, like a good action/spy film! This time Rapp is on a routine assignment in Paris, France, but he is ambushed by several gunmen, and the whole mission is compromised. Rapp is on the run from the enemy and also his own agency, who has a mole and no one kn...

    3.5 stars. I love how competent Mitch Rapp is. I was kind of frustrated by how easily everyone believed the worst of him, especially since things just seemed so clear, but I was probably supposed to be frustrated by that :) Fun series for sure.

    Much better than the previous book. I couldn't stop listening. I had to see the bad guys get their due. I am so ready for the next book.

    After meeting Stan Hurley in later books and witnessing his rapport with Rapp, I was surprised that Flynn set up Hurley as such a mean antagonist in Rapp's past. Knowing how everything would have to work out, this part of the story didn't hold my interest as much as Rapp building his reputation for assassinating individuals who were previously considered untouchable. In fact, I would have preferred that Flynn stuck to these missions and given the...

    When I was a wee teenage boy in the early 80's (yes I know, I'm old, so what, wanna fight?) I frequented my local public library, called a free library at the time, I don't know why, I never have been to a library where I had to pay. There was always numerous chromed wire racks (the kind that spin around) filled with what I guess were called "Men's Adventure" books. I picked up a copy of a series called "The Executioner" by Don Pendleton. My libr...

    Mitch Rapp has his troubles. In the last few books Mr. Flynn has dropped back and given us Mitch's history, his beginnings in the CIA. In the last outing we met some of the players that are here in this book. We also saw the genesis so to speak of the events here. This book while holding the mantel of action proudly around it's shoulders and being true to said mantel also manages to be somewhat of a "who done it". While it tells the story in the ...

    Inertia coming off of American Assassin (the first book in the Mitch Rapp series) drew me straight into Kill Shot. And I'm glad it did!My second introduction to Flynn's writing style and the genre at large did not disappoint. This book is full of vivid and visceral violence (and excellent gun fight scenes, by the way), a global backdrop, especially Paris, witty and characters I found easy to get into, a shifting POV that I didn't think I'd enjoy ...

    Such a great read! I actually enjoyed this one slightly more than American Assassin.

    Entertaining and exciting through and through. I’ve enjoyed following Mitch from the last book and getting to delve deeper into his relationships with his team and those in his personal life. Vince Flynn has quite the knack for setting up a story that draws you in 100%. His attention to detail is enthralling and one of the things that makes this series more than cut of the mill action plot.

    OK this is my second in the series of Mitch Rapp. And I like this one just as much as the first one. I'm afraid I'm trapped into another series. ( yikes) Vince can certainly keep you sitting on the edge of your seat. And this character Mitch Rapp continues to get better and better with each book Vince Flynn has outdone himself and his character development is unmatched ....you feel like you know each and everyone of them inside and out. He also i...

    Finished this in a couple of days. This is a follow on to the last book going back to Rapp's early days with the CIA. The book is very good in fleshing out the back stories of several of the side characters and there is more meat here than in many of the books in the series, at the expense of some of the action that the others have. But the story is very good and this did not bother me at all. What did bother me and what kept me from giving it 5 ...

    Vince Flynn has been in my personal Top 10 thriller authors for a long time. "Kill Shot" is another example why he is a major player and rides the bestseller lists consistently.Mitch Rapp is a character with a unique edge and Flynn busts him loose after setting his own edge in this prequel edition. A shadowy government group with internal issues of it's own has Rapp in Paris to do what he does best. Only, some within the group are not Rapp's bigg...

    Just finished Kill Shot. I've read all of Flynn's Rapp series and as with most all of them, I wish he was ready to put out the follow-up now! It was a great book. Not as "action packed" as some of the others with more scheming and behind the scene intrigue, but the last two books in the Rapp series have gone prequel and it kind of refreshed the series. Highly recommended if your into this type of book.I often compare and try to decide which serie...

    Fantastic book. Vince Flynn is one of my favorite authors. Absolutely loved that Flynn gave us entire flashback devoted book giving us a look at a young Mitch Rapp.Such a treat to see the characters from Rapp's world in their early days. Rapp and the grumpy Stan Hurley are in current day the closest of friends, but they didn't start out that way. They positively hated each other in the beginning. Loved the intrigue and political cat and mouse tha...

    What can I say about a novel that was ten times better than the author's preceding novel after I gave the preceding novel a four star review... Flynn outdid himself with Kill Shot. I devoured it in a couple days and could not stop reading. Well, I had to stop reading occasionally - I do have responsibilities - but I didn't want to. I was constantly itching to get right back to it. Kill Shot was one of those spy thrillers that seemed to employ eve...

    Mitch Rapp is so good that some of his own people are jealous of him and want to end his life. Rapp is "set up" but he doesn't know it. He just goes in to do his job of eliminating the bad guys and gets shot.
