Summary

The New York Times number one best-selling author.

When Russian president Maxim Krupin discovers that he has inoperable brain cancer, he’s determined to cling to power. His first task is to kill or imprison any of his countrymen who can threaten him. Soon, though, his illness becomes serious enough to require a more dramatic diversion - war with the West.

Upon learning of Krupin’s condition, CIA director Irene Kennedy understands that the US is facing an opponent who has nothing to lose. The only way to avoid a confrontation that could leave millions dead is to send Mitch Rapp to Russia under impossibly dangerous orders. With the Kremlin’s entire security apparatus hunting him, he must find and kill a man many have deemed the most powerful in the world.

Success means averting a war that could consume all of Europe. But if his mission is discovered, Rapp will plunge Russia and America into a conflict that neither will survive.

Bravo Kyle Mills and George Guidall!!!

As a long-standing Mitch Rapp/Vince Flynn fan - it’s fantastic that Kyle Mills is continuing the late Vince Flynn’s legacy with such excellent and entertaining stories. I am sure Vince Flynn would be delighted to know what capable hands he has left Mitch Rapp in and furthermore we have a return to narration by the incomparable George Guidall who reads the story with such class and quality. These books get me through many a long car journey and Guidall’s long history with the Mitch Rapp novels come through in the telling. This was a welcome fresh angle on the new Cold War scenario and I couldn’t stop listening. Cannot wait for the next one and I pray the narrator is Mr Guidall!

Excellent

Kyle Mills has done an excellent job. Very exciting as always. Please don’t stop writing Mitch Rapp novels. My only complaint was the narrator who I found difficult to follow and quite muffled.

Rap back to his very best!

At last he is back - well written and brilliantly read by GG. His is the only voice I can relate to as MR. Highly recommend. Good to have Mitch Rapp back in full flow.

another fantastic book from Vince

Another superb book by Vince Flynn. It was high pressure heart pumping adrenaline ride from cover to cover. I could not put it down. I love all the books that precede this one and this book is no different. look forward to the next one.

Entertaining version of the real life situation

This novel can be compared to the best early Tom Clancy production where fiction is mixed in the current real life political landscape. 5/5
