Why did I read this? Because I wanted to see how the series would continue with the death of Vince Flynn in 2013. Kyle Mills is an author whose books I have read before so I was wondering if he could ably continue the series.
Coming close on the heels of Vince Flynn’s last book prior to his death, The Survivor follows up the events of The Last Man. Joe Rickman is dead but prior to that he ensured that CIA secrets will continue to come out electronically. He used a combination of very legal means and very illegal means to ensure that he can bedevil the CIA from beyond the grave. Every intelligence agency in the world is trying to find where the secrets are hidden. Mitch Rapp is running all over the world saving assets while the analysts back at Langley are trying to find the source of the electronic leaks. The action moves quickly between the technical and the action of Mitch Rapp. An effective use of tension between technological intelligence and human assets.
Grade A, the very definition of a page turner.
