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.

1 . Fellow readers, this was a real page turner!
Posted February 02, 2012 by VLundy , ChesterI became a Flynn fan just a few months ago, and I admit that I haven't read his novels in cronological order. This novel pulled all of Flynn newer works together for me. His books are sequential, so my reccomendation is to start at the beginning. I thought Clancy was the best, but Flynn is running neck in neck on my "best author" list. If you like action, justice (in the purest sense of the word), and espionage, then Consent to Kill is a 'great read.' I had a hard time putting it down, and found myself neglecting everything to see what happened next. The end of the story confirms my beliefs in...not going to tell you the ending. Hah!

Excerpt from Consent to Kill by Vince Flynn
To kill a man is a relatively easy thing--especially the average unsuspecting man. To kill a man like Mitch Rapp, however, was an entirely different matter. It would take a great deal of planning and a very talented assassin, or more likely assassins who were either brave enough or crazy enough to accept the job. The latter was more than likely the type who would take on the challenge, for any sane man by definition would have the sense to walk away.
Even with the element of surprise on their side, though, they would need to catch Rapp with his guard down so they could get in close enough to finish him off once and for all. The preliminary report on his vigilance did not look good. The American was either hyperalert or insanely paranoid. Every detail of their plan would have to come together perfectly, and even then, they would need some luck. They'd calculated that their odds for success were probably seventy percent at best. That was why they needed complete deniability. If whoever they sent failed, Rapp would come looking for them. And despite their positions of great power, they had no intention of spending the rest of their lives with a man like Mitch Rapp hunting them.
