Joe Rickman, head of CIA clandestine operations in Afghanistan, has been kidnapped and his four bodyguards executed in cold blood. But Mitch Rapp's experience and nose for the truth make him wonder if something even more sinister isn't afoot. Irene Kennedy, director of the CIA, has dispatched him to Afghanistan to find Rickman at all costs.
Rapp, however, isn't the only one looking for Rickman. The FBI is too, and it quickly becomes apparent that they're less concerned with finding Rickman than placing the blame on Rapp.
With CIA operations in crisis, Rapp must be as ruthless and deceitful as his enemies if he has any hope of finding Rickman and completing his mission. But with elements within his own government working against both him and American interests, will Rapp be stopped dead before he can succeed?
"Flynn is a master--maybe the master--of thrillers in which the pages seem to turn themselves."
"Flynn has never been better."
“The Last Man is arguably Flynn's best work yet. Tight, right and dynamite.”
"Certainly, The Last Man is one of Flynn’s most complex installments in the Rapp canon to date. And Flynn, master storyteller that he is, skillfully navigates the reader through the twists and turns of the tale to a conclusion that puts the main plot elements to rest while setting up the next intriguing volume."
"Flynn fans will not be disappointed. Absolutely first rate."
