“Vince Flynn The Survivor: a Mitch Rapp Novel” (Atria/Emily Bestler Books), by Kyle Mills
The late Vince Flynn’s main hero, covert operative Mitch Rapp, returns for another winner in “The Survivor.”
After Flynn died, Kyle Mills was chosen to finish this book, and he has signed on to write at least two more. Fans have nothing to worry about since Mills does an outstanding job in this novel.
Rapp has to deal with the ramifications of his previous actions, and the target on his back is larger than he can possibly imagine. A former CIA agent named Rickman has gone rogue and threatens to release state secrets jeopardizing men and women across the globe.
Rapp eliminates him as a threat, but he had a backup plan. Now vital and classified intel is slowly being released, and Rapp has to figure out who is responsible for carrying out Rickman’s final wishes.
To make matters worse, the government of Pakistan gets involved, and someone close to the president of the country sees this as the perfect opportunity for assassination and a takeover. Destroying the United States and Rapp as well would be icing on the cake.
Mitch Rapp is known throughout the covert world as a survivor, able to sidestep any attempt on his life or keep his hands clean with an op. Will his amazing luck run out?
Mills has created a wonderful tribute to Flynn while also writing a great novel. While thriller readers and fans miss Flynn, Mills was the perfect choice, and Rapp will continue in good hands.
