Publisher Comments:

For years, Mitch Rapp's bold actions have saved the lives of countless Americans. He has killed with impunity, tortured to avert disaster, and shown he will do whatever it takes to prevent terrorists from fulfilling their bloody wishes. His battles for peace and freedom have made him a hero to many, and an enemy to countless more. In the tangled, duplicitous world of espionage, there are those, even among America's allies, who want to see Mitch Rapp eliminated. They have decided the time has come.

Now, the powerful father of a dead terrorist demands vengeance in its simplest form — an eye for an eye, and Rapp instantly becomes the target of an international conspiracy. This time, he must use all of his vigilance and determination to save himself before he can turn his fury on those who have dared to betray him.

Review:

"A veteran of more than 800 unabridged novels, Guidall brings his considerable talents to this latest thriller featuring CIA assassin Mitch Rapp. This adventure finds Rapp the target of a billionaire Saudi, who blames Rapp for his son's death and has put a $20-million bounty on the American operative's head. Accepting the offer is a husband and wife assassin team who may be the equal of the seemingly invulnerable Rapp. What follows is an intricate story of death, betrayal and revenge. Guidall's smooth, confident narration and fully developed characterizations make for a first-rate listening experience. He handles Flynn's detailed, and at times long, exposition with ease, while effortlessly switching voices and accents in his portrayal of the book's international cast of characters. He nicely avoids turning the sometimes over-the-top writing into a melodramatic cartoon and keeps the story straightforward and suspenseful. It's a credit to both Flynn and Guidall that this trio of cold-blooded assassins are humanized, which makes the rather surprising ending all the more effective and moving." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Even when Consent to Kill shifts from merely implausible to interminable, the plodding plotting is enlivened with a few choice bits of dialogue." Washington Post

Review:

"A work that is equal parts psychological thriller and action thriller with a conclusion that, while controversial, is oddly and unexpectedly satisfying." Bookreporter.com

Review:

"It seems to signal a different tone to the series, which could now move out of the thriller category and find a wider audience." St. Paul Pioneer Press

Synopsis:

The bestselling author of The Third Option and Memorial Day delivers his seventh heart-stopping thriller starring CIA operative Mitch Rapp. In the duplicitous world of espionage, the hunter is about to become the hunted as Rapp must face unimaginable tragedy with the ruthless determination that has captured imaginations across the globe.

Eleanor, November 28, 2006 (view all comments by Eleanor)
A real turning point in the series. It's not necessary to have read the other books to appreciate the depth of emotion in this thriller.
The first third is typical of the series: a secret CIA operation to defend the US as necessary, not always with Congressional approval. This part also introduces a new antagonist, who appears in the next book.
The remainder of the book, though, shows remarkable insight into the protagonist's psyche. Despite the hits he takes in this book, you know he'll be back.
