Enemy of the State is 16 in the series of Mitch Rapp, CIA operative. Because of an agreement made with the president of the United States, Mitch finds himself cut off from his coworkers and on his own. The stakes are high and the action is, fast paced. Mitch has to find the truth of who is behind a recent attack, ISUS or the Saudi government. I don’t want to give away too much, but the team he puts together, not his usual, is part of what makes this listen so entertaining.
This is my first listen to of the Mitch Rapp series, but I intend to continue. Fast paced. Hard action. Good characters. Real life thrown in. Mitch has a “family” if not traditional and we get a chance to know it, some. You all know I love series and I’ve got a lot to catch up on with this one. Makes finding a book easy.
To be honest, I picked this because I love books about agents and intrigue, but when it started, I almost stopped listening. What kept me going? Vince and Kyle had already done what any good book does, drew me in. I enjoyed the characters and wanted to know if they’d survive.
Was there anything I disliked about the book? It’s hard to put that into words. I didn’t like the “feel” I got at the beginning. Hard to explain, but I’m glad I kept going.
Scott did a great job of pacing his reading. I’ve said it before, the narrator can make or break a book listen, Scott made it.
