For months, Mitch Rapp has been steadily working his way - bullet by bullet - through a list of the men responsible for the slaughter of 270 civilians, including his own girlfriend, in the Pan Am Lockerbie bombing.

His next target - a Libyan diplomat - should be easy. Prone to drink and currently in Paris without a bodyguard, Rapp quickly tracks the man down and sends a bullet into his skull while he's sleeping. 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.

When the news breaks that Libya's Oil Minister has been killed along with three innocent civilians and four unidentified men, the French authorities are certain that a wounded gunman is still on the loose in Paris. As the finger-pointing begins, Rapp's handlers have only one choice - deny any responsibility for the incident and race to do damage control. Rapp has become a liability, and he must not be taken alive by the French authorities. But alone in Paris, on the run from the authorities and from his own employers, Mitch Rapp must prepare to fight for his life.

AMERICAN ASSASSIN , book one in the series, is soon to be a MAJOR MOTION PICTURE starring Dylan O'Brien ( Maze Runner ), Taylor Kitsch ( True Detective ) and Michael Keaton.

The Mitch Rapp books by Vince Flynn area always good. I haven't read them in order, so to see the take on the relationships between characters in this book is a bit confusing, especially Rapp's relationship with Irene Kennedy (his boss) and Stan Hurley (his "mentor"). I didn't understand this was a prequel, even though it was written after the early books. No matter. If you like the other books by Flynn, you'll enjoy this too.

Just addicting....once I picked up the book i cant put it down.

Another fast spy thriller with lots of killing. Still leaves a little bit hanging considering it now jumps ahead to the original books written. We don't get a lot of closure with his relationship and the demise of the "friendly" spy on his side...supposedly.

The book is very well written but somehow I had a hart time trying to fit everything I remembered about the main characters (Mitch Rapp, Hurley, Kennedy, etc.) into the "one year" the author keeps making references to. Also, it sounded too much like an echo of Ludlum's Bourne series

A great book with lots of action! It was a little confusing at times because there were a lot of characters, but overall I really enjoyed this book and will look for more books from this author.

An excellent read. The Rapp prequels are terrific.

Another Flynn winner. With this writer you know what you're going to get and look forward to not putting the book down.
