Inhaltsangabe

#1 New York Times best-selling author Vince Flynn is back with another nail-biting political thriller that follows the young Mitch Rapp on a deadly mission to hunt down the men responsible for the Pan Am Lockerbie terrorist attack.

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.

Mitch Rapp's Early Years

Kill Shot is the second book in the Mitch Rapp series, but it was written shortly before the author passed away. Vince Flynn honed his story telling skills over the years and Kill Shot is one of his best books. The story is fast paced and gripping and there is enough political intrigue and power struggle to give it a touch of reality. While some parts of the storyline may appear farfetched at first glance, we became so disappointed by contemporary politics that even the most heinous corruption and treason became plausible.

In this second book of the series Mitch Rapp already became one of the most successful assassins of the CIA, but when he tries to make a routine hit on a target in Paris, everything goes wrong and he finds out that he’s been set up. He doesn’t know anymore, whom he can trust and there is ample reason to suspect parts of the CIA itself. He decides to take cover and go after the traitor all by himself. This puts his controller Irene Kennedy and her boss Thomas Stansfield in a very difficult position and his worst internal adversaries, veteran agent Stan Hurley and the ruthless killer Victor are sent to Paris to bring him in.

This is already enough to make a good story, but Vince Flynn tops that with a bitter sweet love story. Unfortunately the abrupt end leaves the reader a little bit frustrated and with more questions than answers.

All in all, a good book and excellent story telling
