Description

The #1 New York Times bestselling novel that picks up where The Last Man left off, The Survivor is a no-holds-barred race to save America…and Mitch Rapp’s finest battle.

When Joe “Rick” Rickman, a former golden boy of the CIA, steals a massive amount of the Agency’s most classified documents in an elaborately masterminded betrayal of his country, CIA director Irene Kennedy has no choice but to send her most dangerous weapon after him: elite covert operative Mitch Rapp.

Rapp quickly dispatches the traitor, but Rickman proves to be a deadly threat to America even from beyond the grave. Eliminating Rickman didn’t solve all of the CIA’s problems—in fact, mysterious tip-offs are appearing all over the world, linking to the potentially devastating data that Rickman managed to store somewhere only he knew.

It’s a deadly race to the finish as both the Pakistanis and the Americans search desperately for Rickman’s accomplices, and for the confidential documents they are slowly leaking to the world. To save his country from being held hostage to a country set on becoming the world’s newest nuclear superpower, Mitch Rapp must outrun, outthink, and outgun his deadliest enemies yet.

    All you negative Nancy's posting bad comments about how poorly the book is written are clueless and show your true ignorance. You realize that at least half or more of this book was already written by Vince before Kyle Mills, who is a very good author, got tasked with finishing it. If you halfway followed his Twitter account or just looked at it you would know that. So you're just being pricks to be pricks. I loved Vince too and there will never be another but give it a break because this book is great!
  • Thank you!!!!

    Kyle Mills has succeeded in bringing Mitch Rapp into our homes again, with the same intensity and accuracy we would have seen from Vince Flynn, himself. It was a tragic loss to the literary world when Vince succumbed to his illness at such a young age...but Mitch Rapp seems to be in good hands. In this story, we follow Mitch and his team, as they work against time, and a corrupt head of Pakistan's ISI...to gather the files of Joe Rickman, the dead former CIA bureau chief who's last task was to embarrass Irene Kennedy, Mitch Rapp and the entire CIA network. Follow Irene, Mitch, Stan Hurley and the last of the "good guys", as they travel around the globe, to rid the civilized world of yet another group of madmen bent on taking down the U.S. Government, and all that it stands for...go get 'me, Mitch!!!

    Boring. The "action" in this book is surrounded and bogged down by so much rhetoric, theory and background information that it leaves the reader begging for the book to be over. Nothing like the writing in the previous books in the series. All it does is reiterate all the information in the previous books. Sad way for the series to end, but hopefully they stop it here.

    Loved this series from the start. I think the new author substituted violence in this book for the humaneness in the other novels. This wasn't Mitch Rapp. Please rediscover his passion and vulnerability.
  • Posthumous formula

    I've read all of Vince Flynn's books, and had come to feel that the more recent books were becoming more and more predictable and formulaic. I still enjoyed them, but things just were not what they once were. After Mr. Flynn's untimely death in 2013, Kyle Mills takes over the Mitch Rapp stories, and he continues in the same vein. This story continues a plot line begun in "The Last Man," and be fair, it is interesting. It's just not GREAT, and that's too bad. Rapp has become dour and introspective, and that makes for way too many pages of boredom, in my view. Mills does write action well, though, and I was engrossed in those scenes. The book is well worth a read if you are a Rapp fan, but it's not a starting point and it's not among the very best Rapp stories.
