Review by Booklist Reviews

*Starred Review* Mills has firmly established himself as the heir to the fictional world created by Vince Flynn, who died in 2013. Mills' latest thriller starring Flynn's hero Mitch Rapp (following The Survivor, 2015) is a stunner. The assignment is tough enough—keep Pakistani nukes from falling into the hands of terrorists—but the stakes, and the difficulty, are multiplied many times over when Rapp realizes that he has a price on his head, and the man who is paying the bounty has a bold plan to disrupt the entire global supply of oil, which could easily launch WWIII. But first he must eliminate Rapp, the only man capable of stopping him. Of course, this isn't Rapp's first rodeo, and if he needs to go to Russia posing as an ISIS recruit, that's what he'll do. Readers concerned about the fate of the Rapp series after Flynn's passing have no reason to worry. Mills joins the select list of writers able to inherit someone else's premises and characters and keep the franchise going with gusto. This series continues to be the best of the best in the high-adventure, action-heavy thriller field.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Flynn's name, Flynn's characters, and Mills' skill will take this one to the top of the charts, territory already familiar to Mitch Rapp. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

Review by Library Journal Reviews

Durable CIA operative Mitch Rapp is back, chasing down stray Pakistani nukes worldwide so that they won't come under the control of terrorists—or of Russia, which seems set on stirring up trouble. In response, Mitch penetrates deep into Russian territory by posing as an American ISIS recruit. Following the No. 1 New York Times best-selling The Survivor. [Page 47].

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

The rousing 15th entry in the late Vince Flynn's bestselling series, the first by Mills (who completed 2015's The Survivor), pits CIA officer Mitch Rapp against Grisha Azarov, Russian president Maxim Krupin's personal assassin, and for once Mitch isn't the odds-on favorite. Krupin has an ingenious plan involving the theft of Pakistani nuclear warheads and the deployment of dirty bombs in Saudi Arabia's oil fields. The goal is to destroy the Saudis' capability and enhance Russia's ability to fulfill the world's need for oil. As always, foiling this scheme falls on Mitch's legendary shoulders, and watching him go about his lethal business is just as compelling as when Flynn was doing the writing. Mitch has to deal with a tragic love interest, Leah; rescue his best friend, Scott Coleman; capture a stolen nuke; escape from ISIS-controlled Iraq; and defeat the most deadly foe he's ever battled. No problem. Satisfied fans will hope that Mills will fulfill their continuing Mitch Rapp needs far into the future. Agent: Sloan Harris, ICM. (Oct.) [Page ]. Copyright 2016 PWxyz LLC
