This book had all the basic ingredients of a thriller. Being chased by the bad guys, a kindly old special-forces guy, and a super rich villain. I guess there's a reason these components work so often. This story struck me as nothing special or new, but none-the-less entertaining. I never had any big surprise moments, but I wasn't bored either.

Mt favorite author was Vince Flynn who died two years ago of prostate cancer at age 47. My favorite series is Flynn's Mitch Rapp. The Vince Flynn Foundation selected Kyle Mills to continue the Mitch Rapp series. The Survivor, which was started by Flynn prior to his death and completed by Kyle Mills will released on October 6, 2015.
My prior Kyle Mill exposure has been only with his continuation of Ludlum's Jason Bourne series. I have not been impressed. The Immortalists is a decent futurist book, but it does nothing to quiet my concern for the selection of Mills to continue the Mitch Rapp series. I hope that Mills will be up to the task.
I had hoped that Mark Greaney Brad Thor, or Brian Haig would be selected by the Flynn Foundation. Thor already has his own wonderful Scott Harvath series, so that hope was unrealistic. Haig would be excellent, but at age 59 he is likely older than ideal. Mark Greaney would be the best possible choice but he was either unavailable or was not selected for some reason. Greaney is currently writing Clancy's Jack Ryan series and his Ryan books are consistently superior to the best of Tom Clancy.
Based on his body of work it seems very unlikely that Kyle Mills will be able to match Flynn's success with the Mitch Rapp series. I desperately hope I am wrong. I certainly wish Mills great success.
