An unprecedented and terrifying bioterrorism plot threatens to kill millions in the midst of a divisive presidential election in this new thriller from the #1 New York Times bestselling Mitch Rapp series. A toxic presidential election is underway in an America already badly weakened by internal divisions. While politicians focus entirely on maintaining their own power and privilege, ISIS kidnaps a brilliant French microbiologist and forces him to begin manufacturing anthrax. Slickly produced videos chronicling his progress and threatening an imminent attack are posted to the Internet, intensifying the hysteria gripping the US. ISIS recruits a Mexican drug cartel to smuggle the bioweapon across the border, but it?s really just a diversion. The terrorist organization needs to keep Mitch Rapp and Irene Kennedy distracted long enough to weaponize a deadly virus that they stumbled upon in Yemen. If they succeed, they'll trigger a pandemic that could rewrite the world order. Rapp embarks on a mission to infiltrate the Mexican cartels and track down the ISIS leader who he failed to kill during their last confrontation. But with Washington's political elite increasingly lined up against him, he knows he'll be on his own.

Lethal Agent is an interesting read as a thriller genre element. I suspended the thought of literature to give it a 2 1/2. I'm glad I can appreciate a work of art by Peter Heller one day and, with nothing better to look at, enjoy this stuff the next. What I take away from the other comments is that indeed we are in strange political times when a president can blatantly ignore ethics and morality and wear pumpkin colored face cream out in public while putting all of his energy into glorifying himself at the expense of real national and international problems.
Sure, Kyle Mills is no Vince Flynn; but it is what it is, and I might read another one of his someday, just not soon.

“I assume you have demands?”
“You assume right. I want a pardon.”
“You haven’t done anything yet.”
“Then just start it with “I pardon Mitch Rapp” and end it with your signature. The middle can be blank. And you should probably leave a fair amount of space.” 163

I struggled to read this book. It was dull and had no character development. Since the original and beloved author (Vince Flynn) passed away several years ago, this other author tried to step in and fill Vince's shoes. He never has and never will. Unfortunately, when Vince died, so did the character Mitch Rapp. The books are just not the same. This one is so boring and uninteresting. Reader be warned.

With LETHAL AGENT Kyle Mills once again does a great job carrying on with Vince Flynn's (RIP) Mitch Rapp series. Set within the backdrop of the current political chaos in this country, there is an existential threat of an ISIS planned attack on the USA with a horrible biological agent cultivated from the chaos in Yemen. This backdrop requires a lot of maneuvering to halt the threat while at the same time fending off the aspirations of one ego maniac whose sick need to be the next president and who has it out for Rapp, the CIA as a whole, and anyone else standing in the way. Helped along of course by a media more focused on ratings by providing political "entertainment" rather than factual news. The story is really well-plotted and tightly written. I will say the way decisions are made in the context of hyper-political elections has always bothered me; but the thought that presidential candidates could set aside national interests in times of crisis to assure winning an election is cutting really close to the bone of where we are right now as a Nation. Great read.
