Kill Shot by Vince Flynn

Kill Shot by Vince Flynn

Mitch Rapp is an assassin for the CIA targeting terrorists, a task he is more than happy to perform after losing friends in the Pan Am Lockerbie attack in 1988.   The next name on the list is a Libyan diplomat who has ties to a terrorist organization but when Rapp delivers the kill shot men break into the hotel room and start shooting at Rapp.  Who were the heavily armed men after Rapp?  How did the advance team and Rapp miss the fact that the diplomat had bodyguards?  Is something else sinister going on in Paris?

While this book was published in 2012, the events take place in the 1990s when cell phones are just becoming readily available and their use is still novel.  It’s also interesting, knowing what happens about ten years later, to see what terrorism looked like in the world at the time.  I would suggest this for those who enjoy fast-paced spy thrillers with a human element.  Good both on audio and reading the print (I alternated between both).
