For months, Mitch Rapp has been steadily working his way through a list of men, bullet by bullet. With each kill, the tangled network of monsters responsible for the slaughter of 270 civilians becomes increasingly clear. He is given his next target: a plump Libyan diplomat who is prone to drink and is currently in Paris without a single bodyguard.
Rapp finds him completely unprotected and asleep in his bed. With confidence in his well-honed skills and conviction of the man’s guilt, he easily sends a bullet into the man’s skull. 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. In an instant the hunter has become the hunted. Rapp is left wounded and must flee for his life.
The next morning, the news breaks in Washington that Libya’s Oil Minister has been killed along with three innocent civilians and four unidentified men. The French authorities are certain that the gunman is wounded and on the loose in Paris. As the finger pointing begins, Rapp’s handlers have only one choice - deny any responsibility for the incident and pray that their newest secret weapon stays that way, avoiding capture and dying quietly. One person in the group, however, is not prone to leaving things to chance. Rapp has become a liability, and he absolutely cannot be allowed to be taken alive by the French authorities. But it will soon become clear that nothing is more dangerous than a wounded and cornered Mitch Rapp.

Once again very poor narration
Would you try another book written by Vince Flynn or narrated by George Guidall?
Yes, book good narration poor
What other book might you compare Kill Shot to, and why?
Most from the genre: leather, Robotham, Ryan, Baldaccie etc. - fast, pacey etc
Would you be willing to try another one of George Guidall’s performances?
Yes, but probably only to confirm my dislike for his performance!
Was Kill Shot worth the listening time?
Yes, it was great to listen to whilst doing the gardening
Any additional comments?
This narrator completely spoiled what could have been a good book. He emphasised the wrong words in sentences, took breaths in the middle of sentences and didn't even bother to try different voices for the characters. Overall he was appalling.

Brilliant book and series
Firstly George Guidalls voice lends perfectly to this book he truly is excellent and his foreign accents come across as natural with each character. As I said his voice really adds to the characters but especially to Stan Hurley!
This book has the right balance of what you'd need to keep you hooked and listening.
If you've started on the Michael Rapp series, (American Assassin) I garrentee you won't be disappointed. I've listend to all of them and now re listening to them the second time round which, for me is unheard of! But I've struggled to find another author as good at Clandestine espionage novels. Yes I had read Chris Ryan and Andy Mcnab and I still stand by that.

Early days of Mitch Rapp better than a new series
Seems like a long wait since American Assassin, but worth it. This installment continues to give us the background story of Mitch Rapp's early days with Stansfield, Kennedy, Hurly, and in this novel much more on the character of Victor who first appeared in American Assassin. The story works as a stand alone, but when taken within the context of the entire Mitch Rapp series, provides more detail on the characters we have grown accustomed to. Mr. Flynn maintains his great story telling and is complimented by the competent narration of George Guidall. Recommended both for new readers and devoted followers of Vince Flynn's work.

Interesting but not very thrilling
“Kill Shot” is the second in the Mitch Rapp CIA/Spy thriller series. The book is well written and has a good plot but fails to really deliver the action and adventure of the first book. There are a few good action scenes but they’re too few and far between. As the plot developed the author does a good job of filling in background and immersing the reader into the brutal world he creates. I really enjoyed this and it made the book interesting but it’s not a thriller. Also the plot is pretty straight forward except for a bit of a twist at the end. There was very little to keep me guessing. I found the book interesting and fun but it wasn’t the pull me along rollercoaster ride I was hoping for.
George Guidall does a good job a narrating this story and bringing the characters to life.
