Summary

An unprecedented and terrifying bioterrorism plot threatens to kill millions in the midst of a divisive presidential election in this new thriller from the number-one New York Times best-selling Mitch Rapp series.

A toxic presidential election is underway in an America already badly weakened by internal divisions. While politicians focus entirely on maintaining their own power and privilege, ISIS kidnaps a brilliant French microbiologist and forces him to begin manufacturing anthrax. Slickly produced videos chronicling his progress and threatening an imminent attack are posted to the internet, intensifying the hysteria gripping the US.

ISIS recruits a Mexican drug cartel to smuggle the bioweapon across the border, but it’s really just a diversion. The terrorist organization needs to keep Mitch Rapp and Irene Kennedy distracted long enough to weaponize a deadly virus that they stumbled upon in Yemen. If they succeed, they’ll trigger a pandemic that could rewrite the world order.

Rapp embarks on a mission to infiltrate the Mexican cartels and track down the ISIS leader who he failed to kill during their last confrontation. But with Washington’s political elite increasingly lined up against him, he knows he’ll be on his own.

“In the world of black-ops thrillers, Mitch Rapp remains the gold standard” (Booklist, starred review).

Outstanding political/espionage thriller

This is the fifth Mitch Rapp novel written by Kyle Mills since Vince Flynn's family selected him to continue the series after Flynn's 2013 death of prostate cancer. Vince Flynn has been my favorite author since he released the standalone novel Term Limits in 1997. (By the way, Irene Kennedy is the only character that has appeared in every Vince Flynn novel including Term Limits. Scott Coleman also appeared in Term Limits and has appeared on many but not all of the novels in the Mitch Rapp series.) I had grave concerns about the selection of Kyle Mils to continue the Mitch Rapp series, but I was wrong. Mills has done an outstanding job with all five of the Rapp novels he has written.

LETHAL AGENT is first and foremost an espionage thriller as Rapp attempts to stop a bio-weapon attack on the US. It is also a political thriller as US presidential politics is a major part of the novel. The publisher's summary sets up this novel well so I will not add to it.

George Guidall has narrated all of the novels in the Mitch Rapp series except Books 3 - 5. He did his normal superb job with LETHAL AGENT.

I did not want this book to end!!!!

Phenomenal!

I won’t write much because there are already quite a few good reviews. I just wanted to add my thoughts and praise of Kyle Mills for this outstanding book. I had thought the previous Mitch Rapp books written by Mr. Mills were excellent. What tops. Excellent? This book!
This has a well developed plot and all the great characters Rapp fans have come to know over the years.
I am so glad the Flynn family has kept with a single author as opposed to other families of deceased authors (Clancy, Ludlum) where you never know what to expect.
George Guidall does another outstanding job narrating.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Mills hitting his stride

This felt more like a true Mitch Rapp story than the last couple.
I also enjoyed the political perspective...none of them can really be trusted as they are all self- absorbed.

more please

it's enlightening the way he represents the disconnect between the people and the and self-important politicians. I can see this line developing and many new stories to come.

I had great expectations awaiting the release of t

With return of our favorite characters in a current world, very real scenario the author does not disappoint. I spent the last year going through the full series and have two or three that are my favorite and this latest installment is right there with them.

Another great

I always anxiously await the next in this series. This one doesn’t disappoint. I always enjoy when Scott and the gang are involved and they are here. I was afraid “politics” would come into play and typically find that frustrating as I don’t want that interfering in my entertainment. But it’s here- luckily it’s not “real” people. And plays well into the cia life. Not as much of Kennedy here sadly.
Only bad thing is I tend to listen to the new books too quickly & now have to wait “forever “ for another dose.

I need Mitch in my life

Great job Kyle Mills! and great job George Guidall. I downloaded this book yesterday and the only bad part about it is, I've already listened to the whole thing.
The only thing better than a Mitch Rapp novel is listening to a Mitch Rapp novel narrated by Mr. Guidall. The story Kyle Mills puts together is so good it sucks you in. And the way George narrates makes you feel you're a part of it. I laugh out loud, I get nervous for the situation, I get excited when Mitch remorselessly cracks skulls.
Please don't ever stop making Mitch Rapp novels.

Amazing book

I was afraid Kyle Mills would not be able to continue the soul of the Mitch Rapp series, but I was seriously wrong. It had all the content I knew and love from book 1. To everyone who reads my review, please collectively let Kyle Mills know we want him to continue this series!!!

More than just Mitch Rapp

The underlying understanding of the mess we find ourselves in today is uncanny. without being partisan this book lets us see politics as they relay are. We move through this book not just thoroughly entertained but also better informed. Mitch, Scott and the gang are all that you expect from this series. I highly recommend this book and the rest of the series. What can you say about George Guidall the man could read the dictionary and make it sound interesting. Get this book its a real treat

Kyle Mills keeps knocking it out the park!

While George Guidall has been a major contributor to the Mitch Rapp saga, even the best readers would flounder without a good story to read. Exit master storyteller Vince Flynn and enter Kyle Mills. Without meaning to insinuate that Mills doesn't have his own stellar identity, I'll just say that if I didn't have his name on the cover to go by, I would never know which author wrote which books. As great as Flynn was as an author, that's high praise for Mills!
