Mitch Rapp returns to make a mortal enemy of Russia in this high-octane and up-to-the-minute installment in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from “one of the best thriller writers on the planet” (The Real Book Spy).
Mitch Rapp hates owing anyone a favor—especially when it’s the world’s most powerful crime lord. But when Damian Losa calls, Mitch is honor-bound to answer.
The Syrian government appears to have created a highly addictive new narcotic that it plans to distribute throughout Europe. It’s a major threat to Losa’s business and he’s determined to send someone to keep him on top by any means necessary.
Rapp is the perfect choice for the mission. Not only does he have extensive experience operating in the Middle East, but he’s also entirely expendable.
As he crosses into war-torn Syria, Rapp quickly discovers a shocking truth. The new drug isn’t being produced by Damascus to prop up the government’s collapsing finances. Instead, it was created by Russia’s asymmetrical warfare unit, not for profit but as a weapon against the West.
With far more than Damian Losa’s interests at stake, Rapp devises a desperate plan that forces him and his team onto a battlefield where the United States is virtually powerless and allegiances shift almost hourly. Further, if Russia uncovers their plot, it will set off a confrontation between the two countries that could change the course of human history.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Vince Flynn’s iconic CIA action hero Mitch Rapp gets tangled up with a bad, bad guy in this installment of the popular thriller series. Years ago, Rapp got out of a deadly jam with help from billionaire drug kingpin Damian Losa—who now wants his debt repaid. A new party drug developed in a secretive compound in the Middle East is leaving users around the world brain-dead, and Losa wants Rapp to contain the damage. Rapp’s globe-spanning quest includes intense confrontations, kinetic gunfights, and conniving Russians, not to mention pithy asides and brutal violence. Actor Steven Weber’s terse gravitas adds a layer of depth to the operative’s escapades, and the nonstop action makes Code Red a thrilling listen that’ll add excitement to your day.
Book wasn’t so caring away and interesting… Possibly- wrong narrator..?!? More meaningless descriptions , than real actions.. Plot - just primitive and boring..!
I’m on purpose re- listened all audiobooks in the Mitch Rapp series , and been really disappointed..! Kyle Miles lost his sense about Mitch Rapp and Claudia, as well as Irene Kennedy, and why Anna staying forever 7 years old..?!? Umpa-Lumpa..?!?!
Narration is disappointing, of course anyone used to George will be disappointed. Accents are awful and make it a hard listen. Storyline is far fetched and very poorly developed. Shame, this used to be a great series.
Terrible book. I’m a huge fan of Rapp, and have read the entire series multiple times.
Obvious that this script for Code Red was sitting on the shelf and the Rapp characters were simply interjected to produce a book on time. So unlike previous books in the series. I hope this is not the last, Mitch can’t go out on a generic book like this!
