The Survivor by Vince Flynn & Kyle Mills Book Summary

The #1 New York Times bestselling novel that picks up where the “tight, right, and dynamite” (Star Tribune, Minneapolis) 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, former golden boy of the CIA, steals a massive amount of the Agency’s most classified documents in an elaborate 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 with the traitor, but Rickman proves to be a deadly threat to America even from beyond the grave. 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 in this heart-pounding adventure that proves that Vince Flynn “is a master—maybe the master—of thrillers in which the pages seem to turn themselves” (Bookreporter).

The Survivor (Vince Flynn & Kyle Mills) Book Reviews

Not written by Vince Flynn, god rest his soul.This book is an awful waste of time, there is nothing in common with Vince Flynn's fantastic talent, it was written by a wanna-be author that will always be just that, as wanna-be no talent writer. Kyle Mills has a lot of nerve using Vince Flynn's name on the cover of this book in an effort to trick people into buying it, don't waste your time on this turkey..Score: 1/5

It Was OkayVince was Vince...what can I say?.Score: 3/5

Posthumous formulaI'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..Score: 3/5

Kyle WORTHY Successor!From this Septuagenarian "Mitch Is Back"! IMO Kyle Mills has taken considerable time to recreate the initial style, details and flow we found so exciting in the earlier books. I was hooked within the first page. The pacing is right and the sequencing of the plot development confirms Mr. Mills has taken this challenge seriously. There are two concerns: It is my wish that both Mr. Mills and the publisher commit to additional publishing.... Only, if the significant time, patience and goal of maintaining this level of composition. Mitch Rapp has become an alter ego for many of us and I would miss him greatly! But, neither writer or publisher should become victim to this success. In other words, don't get greedy. Let Kyle Mills write to his high standards of creativity and quality. Here is, again IMO, a very good writer that with out the pressures to publish, will continue to excel. My second concern is the price creep that has reappeared. No, I'm not going to suffer financial crisis with these prices for a book I can neither share nor donate. Within a few months, the big book store will have it discounted further. I realize ebooks can be shared with other readers on various devices. But for apple iBooks , which can not be share...nor do we have ownership of the book--I believe Apple would benefit by giving its devoted users a break. As a reader of all of Mr. Flynn's books; the GREAT and the "not as Great" books...I suggest to at least download the "sample". Once you open the "book" it will feel like an old shoe:).Score: 5/5

Thank you!!!!As good as any book in the Mitch Rapp series. Kyle, thank you and please continue the Rapp legacy..Score: 5/5

SURVIVED MY DOUBTSGenerally I'm hesitant reading books by authors no longer with us. But Kyle Mills must have shared his keyboard with Vince Flynn's spirit and any doubts I may have had survived through this well written continuation in the Mitch Rapp series. Thank you Mr. Kyle for keeping my attention as I read page after page every spare minute I had these last few days..Score: 5/5

A fantastic continuation of Vince Flynn's legacy, Terrific work Kyle MillsBeing a long time Vince Flynn/Mitch Rapp fan I was skeptical, to say the least, when I heard another Author was continuing the Mitch Rapp series. Similar feats have been attempted over the years with, IMHO, miserable results. Kyle Mills on the other hand has done it. He kept Vince's characters true to form, and the writing style very similar while incorporating his own unique writing talent into the novel. Fast paced, exciting and everything you'd expect from a Vince Flynn/Mitch Rapp novel. I'm not one to spoil an excellent story so buy it and enjoy. I'm looking forward to more Mitch Rapp stories from Kyle Mills and have no doubt he'll continue to write fantastic stories for us all while preserving Vince's legacy and Mitch Rapp's legend! Thank you Kyle Mills for an excellent novel!.Score: 5/5

So happy to have Mitch back!Thank you, Kyle Mills, for continuing this series. You did an amazing job of continuity. Those of us who have read and re-read Vince Flynn's books would be the harshest critics but there was absolutely nothing that went off character. I sincerely hope you are able to continue the series, especially as Mitch is ready to move on emotionally! I can also say that I have enjoyed all of Kyle Mill's other books..Score: 5/5

Vince Flynn "Survives"The Survivor picks up where "The Last Man" ends. Rapp and Company must deal with the effects of CIA Analyst Joe 'Rick' Rickman's leaked CIA DOCS including a NOC list. I have been an extreme Flynn fan since I read Term Limits in 1999. Every one of his books have a high degree of "reread-ability" and this one is no different. Kyle Mills done a wonderful job of sustaining Vince's style as well as his characters. He introduces the reader to his own style a bit, and does so cautiously, while paying respect to Vince, and the Rapp Army. Fun book from start to finish, you will NOT be disappointed!!! I also highly recommend the unabridged audiobook read by George Guidall-AWESOME! VINCE LIVES ON FOREVER!!!!.Score: 5/5

The SuvivorSo wanted to enjoy Mitch Rapp again. He's "almost" the same character, but he has lost some of his sex appeal. So many of my friends are "in love" with the old Mitch. Enjoyable book but the pace is not quite the same and I couldn't move along quickly with this one like the others. Still a great read though. Thank you for bringing Mitch back to us!.Score: 4/5

Not worthwhile at allPoor Vince Flynn. They should have left his great memory alone. This so-called "Mitch Rapp" novel is a bust. The substitute author has no sense of Flynn's actual literary voice. The story lacks believability, and there are endless errors of grammar. This Kyle Mills guy, the new "Flynn/Rapp" writer who fails the reader, is clueless when it comes to pronouns and antecedents. Flynn always understood what Rapp was about. There are passages in this new book that highlight Rapp as superhuman, and these descriptions show how little Mills understands the character. There is no true sense of place. By the time we've leapfrogged to Russia, the story becomes silly. I wonder what it's like to be a fake Robert Ludlum and then a fake Vince Flynn the way Mills is? Doesn't he want his own identity?.Score: 1/5

BoringBoring. 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..Score: 2/5

Great read!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!.Score: 5/5

The SurvivorKyle 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!!!.Score: 5/5

Good...but a little too islamiphobicLove being able to continue the Mitch Rapp story, as he is such a great character! The new author is a little too over the top with the mindset of some of the main protagonists who are of course Muslims.
