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. The nonstop action makes Code Red a thrilling read that’ll add excitement to your day.
A good read
Well written with interesting and regular surprises. Easily keeps your attention. I’ll read another Mitch Rapp book as soon as I can. It is quite intense.
Another great Mitch Rapp adventure!
Kyle Mills has done such an excellent job continuing this great literary series. What a daunting task it must’ve been to step up and write in place of the great Vince Flynn! Nevertheless, he stepped up and did so in excellent fashion. What a great finish to an impressive run. Thank you, Kyle!
Solid as usual.
Decent enough. Not great but certainly not bad either… easy light read
