Please, save the last dance for me.

With "The Last Man," we are given an inside look at the covert operations of the CIA.

Someone has kidnapped the agency's top agent in covert ops in Afghanistan. He has the names of the agency's top spies throughout the area. If he's made to talk, it would be an intelligence disaster.

Mitch Rapp, the agency's top covert operative, investigates. In addition, there is an attempt on Mitch's life and someone is promoting a smear campaign against the money handling of Mitch and the missing agent.

The action thriller demonstrates the author's story telling ability, his excellent character development and shows the heroism of many operatives in the field.

The plot is original and the suspense is nicely maintained throughout.

Thanks for the review, Mike. Not sure that this is the type of book for me, but I love reading your reviews.

Hi Mike,

Just checking out your website and notice that the link you have for your amazon reviews just goes directly to amazon.com and not your profile so it would be hard for people to see the books you've read. It might be better to use this link http://www.amazon.com/gp/pdp/profile/A16RAMIXBUHVKV/ref=cm_cr_dp_pdp. This will take them directly to your profile and your book reviews so they can mark them helpful.

aloha,
karen
