Mitch Rapp is used to winning. But now the CIA operative finds himself chasing false leads from continent to continent in an effort to keep 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, and soon it becomes alarmingly clear that forces in Moscow are hell-bent on fomenting even more chaos and turmoil in the Middle East. Rapp must go deep into Russian territory, posing as an American ISIS recruit, to stop a plan much more dangerous and insidious than he ever expected.

Outstanding introduction. Grisha Azarov’s expertise resembled those of Rapp’s, but his fear for the CIA agent substantiated a phobic disorder. Having unique capabilities, his underlying trepidation had been astounding. Paradoxically though both prodigies overestimated the powers of the other. Retrospectively, the CIA team’s proficiency during the warehouse raid had been commendable with conspicuous ramifications that evoked pragmatism. Papp’s aggressive tendencies moderated his superiority initially, but correlated with his concern for his friend’s precarious condition. This resonated with his relaxed colloquies once Irene Kennedy confirmed Scott Coleman’s recuperation.

Kyle Mills is an exemplary author like Alex Berenson. His ending concurred with the story’s beginning. While parts of the narrative seemed surreal, it was encouraging to notice the moral behavior of some men valuing a woman’s honor. Very well written.

I'm starting to get tired of these franchise novels where a well known name is used as the lure (a la James Patterson) but the work is really written by someone else. This book is by Kyle Mills since the author Vince Flynn died in 2013. The novel lacks authenticity as you can't feel you're really in the action due to the thumbnail location descriptions. There is little or no character development of even the major players and the plotline is flimsy. This was my first Mitch Rapp novel and I found it a little disappointing.

I enjoyed this book as much as any of the other Rapp novels written by Flynn. Excellent!

I had high hopes of the continuance of the Mitch Rapp series of thrillers. The late Vince Flynn's stand-in, Kyle Mills, had a hard precedent to follow. Sadly, I'm of the opinion that the two books by Mr Mills do not quite make the grade. There is something or somethings missing. Kyle's use of generalizations to sway the reader's thoughts were not Flynn's style and also his Rapp character is missing something of Flynn's ruthless Rapp characterization. The original Rapp does not dither nor guess. He also is extremely aware of his situation and the furtive motives of the individual's that move the diplomatic and political chess pieces.

Sadly, in Mr Mills' character, this aspect is woefully missing. The reader of Flynn's works knew to expect the unexpected from Mitch Rapp and the reader was prepared to be surprised by his incredible resourcefulness.

True, Flynn must be a hard act to follow. His books are 'edge of the seat' reads. Not quite believable, but readers loved the stories for that bit of magic. Kyle's books are a good enough read, but sadly, they do not measure up the the master.

Mills has Vince's style written all over his work, congrats. Once you crack this book it's hard to put it down. Looking forward to future Mitch Rapp stories.

Storyline was ok but, having read all the previous Vince Flynn books, Kyle Mills doesn't compare

Kyle Mills is doing an amazing job carrying on the Mitch Rapp legend. It's as if he is channeling Vince Flynn. This latest adventure is once again ripped from today's headlines and has Mitch and his team tangling with a new assassin and racing to prevent dirty bombs going off in the oil fields of Saudi Arabia. Highly recommended.
