I've read or have listened to all the books in the series and this one was my least favorite. Perhaps it was the narration which was okay (so use to George) or the fact that it's further removed from Vince's influence but it seemed rushed and shallow. I don't want to give away details but the new characters are bland and underdeveloped. The ending itself is short and not "Rapp-like". To me the book felt like a deadline was given and the team scrambeled to meet it. It would stand alone as a featurette.

I am a big fan of Vince Flynn and the Mitch Rapp series, but something was missing in this book. While Kyle Mills did a good job with the first two Rapp books he wrote, this one did not seem to be as close to what Vince Flynn would have done than the previous efforts of Mills. In this book Rapp seemed to relish in foul language and also in violence.
I am not familiar with Mills previous writing, but I think he may be putting his own stamp on the character in this book, and I see it as a departure from Flynn and what he was doing. The book was entertaining, and I did enjoy the interaction with some of the previous characters from earlier books, but the change in President Alexander's character was too dramatic, and Irene Kennedy was more like a prop. She had no real substance in this book and no development. The relationship between Kennedy and Rapp was a key factor in earlier books. Their relationship was interesting and multi-layered, but Mills does not seem to get that at all.
As a thriller I would give this a C-. As a continuation of Vince Flynn's Legacy I would probably give it a D. My gut feeling is that Mills will not be back for any future Mitch Rapp books.
