In the next thrilling novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Mitch Rapp series, the anti-terrorism operative heads to Pakistan to confront a mortal threat he may not be prepared for. In fact, this time he might have met his match.
Mitch Rapp is used to winning.
But in this follow-up to #1 New York Times bestselling The Survivor, the CIA operative finds himself chasing false leads from continent to continent in an effort to keep Pakistani nukes from falling into the hands of terrorists. Together with friend and colleague Scott Coleman, Rapp struggles to prevent the loss of these lethal weapons, particularly because Russia is also interested in the nukes, though not for the same reason as Rapp and Coleman.
Soon, it becomes alarmingly clear that the forces in Moscow are bent on fomenting even more chaos and turmoil in the Middle East, and Rapp must go deep into Russian territory, posing as an American ISIS recruit. There, he uncovers a plan much more dangerous and insidious than he ever expected, one that could have far-reaching and catastrophic consequences.
Written with breathless tension and heart-pounding action, Mitch Rapp's latest adventure is as timely and provocative as ever.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
This is the second Mitch Rapp novel written by Kyle Mills, who once again does justice to the late Vince Flynn’s action-packed series. Here, CIA operative Rapp goes undercover in Pakistan to try to keep the Islamic State from getting its hands on nuclear weapons. With its killer plot twists, breathless pace, helicopter rides, and menacing supervillain, Order to Kill gave us thrills for days.
The rousing 15th entry in the late Vince Flynn's bestselling series, the first by Mills (who completed 2015's The Survivor), pits CIA officer Mitch Rapp against Grisha Azarov, Russian president Maxim Krupin's personal assassin, and for once Mitch isn't the odds-on favorite. Krupin has an ingenious plan involving the theft of Pakistani nuclear warheads and the deployment of dirty bombs in Saudi Arabia's oil fields. The goal is to destroy the Saudis' capability and enhance Russia's ability to fulfill the world's need for oil. As always, foiling this scheme falls on Mitch's legendary shoulders, and watching him go about his lethal business is just as compelling as when Flynn was doing the writing. Mitch has to deal with a tragic love interest, Leah; rescue his best friend, Scott Coleman; capture a stolen nuke; escape from ISIS-controlled Iraq; and defeat the most deadly foe he's ever battled. No problem. Satisfied fans will hope that Mills will fulfill their continuing Mitch Rapp needs far into the future.
Very happy that Rapp is as nasty as ever
Kyle has Rapp's character down so well I sometimes forgot Vince wasn't doing the writing. Well done Kyle. And I still am so sad at Vince's passing.
I really enjoyed the story. And Rapp was back with all his loving traits of shooting now and taking names later. Can't wait for the next one.
