Flynn, creator of counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp, died in 2013, and this fifteenth novel in the series was written by Mills (his second, after 2015's The Survivor). It's a gripping story concerning the threat of nuclear attack: a terrorist group has managed to get hold of some Pakistani weaponry, and Mitch races against time to recover it. Veteran audio narrator Guidall is an expert at accents, which comes in handy here; his Russian and Iraqi characters, for example, sound just as natural as his English speakers. His very pleasing baritone leads us easily through the story; he takes a conversational approach, just a guy telling us a story, rather than the more dramatic approach taken by some audio narrators. Guidall doesn't hype the many dramatic passages with verbal flourishes but lets the author's words provide the drama (he's reporting on the action, but he's not participating in it). For fans of the long-running Rapp series, this is a must-listen. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
