In the next thrilling novel in the number-one New York Times best-selling Mitch Rapp series, the anti-terrorism operative heads to Pakistan to confront a mortal threat he may not be prepared for. In fact, this time he might have met his match.
Mitch Rapp is used to winning.
But in this follow-up to number-one New York Times best-selling The Survivor, the CIA operative finds himself chasing false leads from continent to continent in an effort to keep Pakistani nukes from falling into the hands of terrorists. Together with friend and colleague Scott Coleman, Rapp struggles to prevent the loss of these lethal weapons, particularly because Russia is also interested in the nukes, though not for the same reason as Rapp and Coleman.
Soon, it becomes alarmingly clear that the forces in Moscow are bent on fomenting even more chaos and turmoil in the Middle East and Rapp must go deep into Russian territory, posing as an American ISIS recruit. There, he uncovers a plan much more dangerous and insidious than he ever expected, one that could have far-reaching and catastrophic consequences.
Written with the same breathless tension and heart-racing action as Vince Flynn's greatest novels, Mitch Rapp's latest adventure is as timely and provocative as ever.

Which way to that pasture?
Strong, fast paced, good vs. evil story
Written by Kyle Mills in tribute to Vince Flynn, this is the second book in the "Mitch Rapp" series since Flynn passed away in 2013. And tributes they are! Mr. Mills has truly done justice to a series that Vince Flynn began in 1999. It is nearly impossible to feel the difference between the stories conceived and written by the amazing original author and Mills.
In this latest installment, the hero Mitch Rapp and his regular supporting cast are tracking what they believe to be an al-Qeada operation to steal and detonate loosely guarded tactical nukes of Pakistan. But because of deception and possible insider double dealing, Rapp and his team are a step behind and frequently endangered by seemingly bad intel.
So, at first glance (and maybe second and third) the story is stock and hackneyed: Bad guys with only slight techno skills want nukes and good guys move heaven and earth to prevent that. But there are very good twists, turns and motivations that refresh the old saw and turn it into a sterling silver story.
George Guidall being one of three, in my opinion, exceptional narrators for this genre of story (the others being Dick Hill and Ray Porter) the story is unmarred by horrible accents and overacting frequently found in books where Middle Eastern and European accents abound. Guidall does a fabulous job of letting the story talk, not trying infuse it with his own brilliance... which makes him brilliant!
The story is fast paced keeping the action moving without being weighted down by so many characters and subplots that you need a computer and scoring app to keep track. Enjoyable and different, this is a great book even if you have not had the chance to enjoy the previous books in the series.
