Description

Product Description

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.

“In the world of black-ops thrillers, Mitch Rapp remains the gold standard” ( Booklist, starred review).

Review

"The writing is stellar, and the action is nonstop, as always, continuing the legacy that makes the Rapp series the best of the best when it comes to the world of special ops." ― Booklist (starred review)

"Mitch Rapp is the hero we need, maybe now more than ever." ― The Real Book Spy

"LETHAL AGENT is a gut punch of a tale that exploits our greatest fears, and it''s as brilliantly conceived as it is wondrously crafted."  ― Providence Journal

*Praise for RED WAR*

"Outstanding . . . Mills is writing at the top of his game in this nail-biter." ― Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Kyle Mills continues his impressive run of must-read thrillers with RED WAR, a timely, explosive novel that shows yet again why Mitch Rapp is the best hero the thriller genre has to offer. . . and why Mills is the only writer capable of filling the enormous void left by Vince Flynn." ― The Real Book Spy

"Events lead to a dramatic, you-got-your-money''s-worth conclusion. Good, escapist fun." ― Kirkus Reviews

"All action from start to finish . . . a page-turner all the way up to the climatic finale that you just can’t put down." ― Red Carpet Crash

I have read a lot of Vince Flynn novels but this was my first and last reading of a "Vince Flynn" novel actually written by Kyle Mills. I had heard from someone else who had read another "Vince Flynn" novel written by Kyle Mills that it wasn''t very good and not recommended. But I thought I''d give it a try as I liked the actual Vince Flynn novels. However, after reading the 1st chapter, I gave up and threw it out. The temperance shown to the terrorists was nauseating. These are people that for insane and displaced reasoning, want us dead. They murder men, women and children without a second thought yet Mills portrays them as the good guys. Mitch Rapp is described as Satan''s representative, certainly not Mitch being the good guy. He also allows the terrorist to escape multiple times and that portrays him as incompetent. As I said, this was the first and absolutely the last time I ever read a Kyle Mills novel.

I have read every Mitch Rapp book. In respect of Vince, I’ve stuck with the Kyle Mills era of the series, even though they haven’t been living up to my expectations. However, after reading this book, I have concluded that I am doing Vince’s memory—and prior work—a disservice by continuing to support Mills’s ridiculously poor parodies of the Rapp series. Kyle doesn''t know these characters like he should, plus the writing is just bad. While struggling through this book, I continually shook my head over the B-movie-level dialogue. My Kindle was at 50% and the book was still plodding along one-dimensionally. I was also put-off by the pages and pages of rambling thoughts of the terrorist leader—was Mills trying to show depth here by providing “insight” into a terrorist’s mind? If so, he failed and instead came across as a quasi-sympathizer. Then there are the characters: Mitch would have not made these choices. He just wouldn’t have. And Mitch’s colleagues were included by name only, not as actual characters in the book. They could have been ANYONE, which seems like an easy out for an author who hasn’t done their homework….or loved the series like the rest of us. It just makes me sad and mad.

See any other reviews by me on Amazon? Nope. This is my first one, as I feel really strongly about my favorite CIA (OGA?) operative and this novel. I''ve read every Mitch Rapp novel at least 15 times (I lost count). Kyle has had a couple of high points but this is not one of them. I can''t imagine a more predictable, boring, by-the-numbers Mitch Rapp novel. Zero and I mean ZERO Mitch character arc/development. It''s just generic Islamic Tango, loyal sidekicks, evil Senator, unflappable Irene Kennedy, Mitch going "off the books", yada yada yada. Zero surprises, zero character development. He actually stole the "rogue Mitch" plot point from his own book, Enemy of the State! Didn''t you just "betray" your country a couple of years ago, Mitch? As the title of the review says I''d rather go back and read about Mike Nash''s erectile dysfunction, which I thought was the low point of Vince''s writing. Here''s a clue Kyle: if it''s a MITCH RAPP novel, please focus on MITCH. I learned more about the Doctors Without Borders tertiary characters (who you knew were going to die) than Mitch. Ugh.

Readers aren’t dolts even if publishers think we are. They apparently believe they can sell us anything if it has a good brand name on the cover. Lesson learned. Never again.

Mitch Rapp is killed off by this second rate excuse for a real Mitch Rapp book by Vince Flynn
Reviewed in the United States on September 25, 2019
This book read like a $2.99 boilerplate special. Story line was very predicable and the situations Rapp intentionally puts himself in and then escapes from are ridiculous. The ending was boring. Mitch Rapp died with my favorite author - Vince Flynn.

I was lucky, and thrilled, to be selected again as a Mitch Rapp Ambassador, which meant I was given the privilege to read the next installment in the Mitch Rapp saga, prior to the release date. To say that I was excited to read the new book, about one of the greatest characters in the thriller genre, is an understatement. I have been a HUGE Mitch Rapp fan since Vince Flynn introduced him to us in Transfer of Power. Vince, through 13 Mitch Rapp novels, elevated the thriller genre, and set the bar pretty high. After his untimely passing, Kyle Mills stepped in, and continued the series that has become a passion to many people. Mitch has continued to wreak havoc, against those who want to harm this Country, with Kyle at the keyboard for 5 books (this being the fifth). This one is probably his best outing yet. They have all been great, but this one is outstanding. What we got is a novel that reads like one of the original 13 that was written by Vince Flynn. Mitch is more badass, tougher and basically, Mitch. Very compelling and believable story that once started, was hard to put down. Lost some sleep on this one. Mr Mills, you found your own voice in the first four books, while honoring Vince’s style and characters. But in this one, you tapped into a dialect that has created a seamless portal into the past. Thank you from all of us Mitch Rapp fans for all you have done, and continue to do, to keep the series going. For the Mitch Rapp fans, you are gonna love this book. Great action and vintage Mitch. For those not initiated into the Mitch Rapp world, climb in, buckle up and be prepared for a kick ass ride.

I think Mr MIlls Rapp books have been extremely uneven. The first was pretty solid and felt almost as if Vince had written large parts of it, and MIills finished it off. I found the second one pretty lacking, the third a decent enough read, and now this one if back to pretty underwhelming. This one felt like an action novel with characters who''s names were familiar, but only in name. Their actions, the overall plot, the action, etc was all thin. Irene was nothing more than a shell, and didn''t even make a real appearance until 1/3 into the book. I think we have all had our fill of the Islamic cave terrorist, the rogue "senator" or other corrupt government enemy of the state from within, and a hero gunning down everyone bad in a manner that stretches the suspension of disbelief to the point of comedy.

This is the fifth novel in the Mitch Rapp saga written by Kyle Mills, who took over the franchise after the death of Vince Flynn, its creator. On the cover, Vince Flynn still gets top billing (he is now the “brand”, not the author).

In the third Mitch Rapp novel by Kyle Mills, Enemy of the State , Rapp decapitated the leadership of ISIS by detonating a grenade in a cave where they were meeting and barely escaped with his life when the cavern collapsed. As the story concluded, it was unknown whether the leader of ISIS, Mullah Sayid Halabi, was killed in the cave-in. Months later, evidence surfaces that Halabi survived, and may be operating in chaotic, war-torn Yemen. Rapp tracks him to a cave in the Yemeni desert but finds only medical equipment apparently used to treat his injuries: Halabi has escaped again.

A Doctors Without Borders team treating victims of a frighteningly contagious and virulent respiratory disease which has broken out in a remote village in Yemen is attacked and its high-profile microbiologist is kidnapped, perhaps by Halabi''s people to work on bioweapons. Meanwhile, by what amounts to pure luck, a shipment of cocaine from Mexico is intercepted and found to contain, disguised among the packets of the drug, a brick of weaponised anthrax, leading authorities to suspect the nightmare scenario in which one or more Mexican drug cartels are cooperating with Islamic radicals to smuggle terrorists and weapons across the porous southern border of the U.S.

In Washington, a presidential election is approaching, and President Alexander, who will be leaving after two terms, seems likely to be replaced by the other party''s leading contender, the ruthless and amoral Senator Christine Barnett, who is a sworn enemy of CIA director Irene Kennedy and operative Mitch Rapp, and, if elected, is likely to, at best, tie them up in endless congressional hearings and, at worst, see them both behind bars. Barnett places zero priority on national security or the safety of the population, and is willing to risk either to obtain political advantage.

Halabi''s plans become evident when a slickly-produced video appears on the Internet, featuring a very much alive Halabi saying, “Now I have your biological weapons experts. Now I have the power to use your weapons against you.” The only way to track down Halabi, who has relocated to parts unknown, is by infiltrating the Mexican cartel behind the intercepted shipment. Rapp devises a plan to persuade the cartel boss he has gone rogue and is willing to sign on as an enforcer. Having no experience operating in Mexico or more than a few words of Spanish, and forced to operate completely on his own, he must somehow convince the cartel to let him inside its inner circle and then find the connection to Halabi and thwart his plans, which Rapp and others suspect may be far more sinister than sprinkling some anthrax around. (You don''t need an expert microbiologist to weaponise anthrax, after all.)

This thriller brings back the old, rough-edged, and unrelenting Mitch Rapp of some of Vince Flynn''s early novels. And this is a Rapp who has seen enough of the Washington swamp and the creatures who inhabit it to have outgrown any remaining dewy-eyed patriotism. In chapter 22, he says,

“But what I do know is that the U.S. isn''t ready. If Halabi''s figured out a way to hit us with something big—something biological—what''s our reaction going to be? The politicians will run for the hills and point fingers at each other. And the American people…. They faint if someone uses insensitive language in their presence and half of them couldn''t run up a set of stairs if you put a gun to their head. What''ll happen if the real s*** hits the fan? What are they going to do if they''re faced with something that can''t be fixed by a Facebook petition?”

So Rapp is as ruthless with his superiors as with the enemy, and obtains the free hand he needs to get the job done. Eventually Rapp and his team identify what is a potentially catastrophic threat and must swing into action, despite the political and diplomatic repercussions, to avert disaster. And then it is time to settle some scores.

Kyle Mills has delivered another thriller which is both in the tradition of Mitch Rapp and also further develops his increasingly complex character in new ways.

Read every Rapp book to date but couldn''t finish this one and won''t be pre ordering the next. So badly written, no depth or overall reasoning to much of the plot. Rapp comes across as bland with no personality, so unlike the early books... End of Rapp for me.

There is less about US politics and their evil deeds than in previous books….with far more action and a huge body count. Considering it was written before the current pandemic it seems prophetic in places. Not a bad read and quite exciting in places.
