American Assassin by Vince Flynn Book Summary

In #1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn’s explosive and “captivating” (Glenn Beck) thriller, witness the young Mitch Rapp as he takes on his first assignment.

Mitch Rapp was a gifted college athlete without a care in the world…and then tragedy struck. Terrorists attacked innocent American citizens, and Rapp’s girlfriend was among the murdered. Two hundred and seventy souls perished on that cold December night, and thousands of family and friends were left searching for comfort. Mitch Rapp was one of them, but he was not interested in comfort. Now he wants retribution.

Two decades of cutthroat partisan politics have left the CIA and the country in an increasingly vulnerable position. Cold War veteran CIA Operations Director Thomas Stansfield knows he must prepare his people for the next war. America must confront Islamic terrorism with full force. Stansfield directs his protégée, Irene Kennedy, and his old Cold War colleague, Stan Hurley, to form a new group of clandestine operatives who will work outside the normal chain of command—men who do not exist.

What type of man is willing to kill for his country without putting on a uniform? Six months of intense training have prepared him to take the war to the enemy’s doorstep, and he does so with brutal efficiency. Rapp starts in Istanbul, where he assassinates the Turkish arms dealer who sold the explosives used in the terrorist attack. Rapp then moves on to Hamburg with his team and across Europe, leaving a trail of bodies. All roads lead to Beirut, though, and what Rapp doesn't know is that the enemy is aware of his existence and has prepared a trap. The hunter is about to become the hunted, and Rapp will need every ounce of skill and cunning if he is to survive the war-ravaged city and its various terrorist factions.

This is “a bold and brawny tale that never wavers or lets up. The voice of today’s postmodern thriller generation, Flynn has never been better” (The Providence Journal) in this unforgettable novel of a young man primed to become an American assassin.

American Assassin (Vince Flynn) Book Reviews

Best work of fiction of my adult life.I've read Vince Flynn's American Assassin around fifty times, it is the best novel I've ever read. The characters are well rounded and the plot is perfect..Score: 5/5

99% lame filler....1% lame actionReal page turner - 'cause I kept turning the pages hoping the next would contain something interesting, but it never did. The majority of this book was filled with nothing short of some of the most mind-numbingly boring dialog I've ever suffered through. This is written at a 3rd grade level. The Hunger Games contained better dialog, plot movement, character development, political intrigue, and violent action than this waste of $7.99. I bought it because Limbaugh always talks about his novels, but that is clearly the result of paid advertising. This was an effort to read and I want a refund..Score: 1/5

Great book! Finally he is a good writer!This is easily Flynn's best book. He has matured quite a bit as a writer. His first books were really nothing special, but entertained nonetheless. Now it seems like there's a bit more depth and less fanciful storytelling to his characters. Unlike the first books, which I couldn't wait to finish, this one, I wish would have been longer. Hopefully there will be more to come in the future..Score: 5/5

Department of Redundancy DepartmentFlynn had a good character in Rapp and wrote interesting plots, but he often explained things twice and it bogged-down his stories. So much so that I won't read his work anymore. He could have benefitted from a better editor! I find that Lee Child and David Baldacci don't insult their readers' intelligence in this way..Score: 2/5

American AssassinI have read most of the Mitch Rapp books, but this was my first version as an ebook. This novel held it's own as the back story, so it held my interest. However, I do prefer the stories that take place on U.S. soil. My only real complaint is this ebook version. There are many typos and formatting errors that I would not have seen in the print version. I am finding more of these issues in general with ebooks.

He is a well written character.
