CIA operative Mitch Rapp is back in Order to Kill, and about to go deep, deeper than ever before. But when the mission is to go under cover as an American terror recruit, will he make it back in one piece? Or – literally – lose his head?
Kyle Mills seamlessly picks up where the late Vince Flynn left off, taking readers on a thrilling, spook ride that skids through Russian conspiracies deep into ISIS territory, without pausing for breath.
In Mitch Rapp’s line of work, relationships can be a liability. So when the CIA operative uncovers a conspiracy to target Claudia Gould and her daughter Anna, who are under his protection, and inextricably bound to him through complicated and bloody ties, it’s clear that something bigger is afoot. And Russian Oligarch Grisha Azarov has everything to do with it.
Soon Rapp, alongside ex-SEAL and fellow operative Scott Coleman, finds himself launched on a global mission chasing stolen nuclear material before ISIS can use it in an unimaginably deadly attack. In the meantime Azarov, under the orders of the increasingly dictatorial Russian president Krupin, is working his own angle – one that may yet blow things in the Middle East sky high. To uncover this web of conspiracies and counter conspiracies, Rapp must infiltrate the Russian network, but it will be one of the riskiest moves of his career – and one that has already thrown those closest to him in harm’s way.
Order to Kill careens from gun battles to political conspiracy to terror cells and interrogation rooms, with the kind of intelligence agency insider knowledge and explosive action that shot Vince Flynn’s thrillers to the New York Times bestseller list. Losing a talent like Flynn to cancer in 2013 was a very sad blow to fans of the series, so we are glad to see that again, Rapp is in safe hands with Mills. He was an experienced and well established thriller writer before taking on the series, and also a fan of Vince’s.
This is the second Rapp novel Mills has penned, and he brings his own insider knowledge of the espionage trade to the gripping story and characters. Mills channels Flynn’s creation perfectly – Mitch Rapp may be older and carrying the scars of his bloody profession, but the hard-bitten CIA operative still commando rolls with the punches.
If you’re looking for a tense, page-turning thriller, look no further. From the geo-political backdrop to the nail-biting action, Order to Kill is a wild ride – and one that is guaranteed to keep you on edge till the final showdown.
