Summary
*Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller*

The #1 New York Times bestselling series returns with Mitch Rapp racing to prevent Russia's gravely ill leader from starting a full-scale war with NATO.

"Mills is the only writer capable of filling the enormous void left by Vince Flynn."-- The Real Book Spy

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.

"In the world of black-ops thrillers, Mitch Rapp continues to be among the best of the best" ( Booklist , starred review).
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Mills took over the popular Mitch Rapp series after Vince Flynn passed away in 2013, and he has done an outstanding job of carrying the torch. His latest creates a terrifying scenario involving the Russian president, Maxim Krupin, who has an inoperable brain tumor. With nothing left to lose, the afflicted leader decides to eliminate his enemies, both within and without. He begins with rivals in the Kremlin but moves on to plotting an attack against every country that he feels has mistreated him and his regime. The CIA director turns to Rapp to stop the threat, but Rapp's very presence in Russia is enough to start a conflict. There is little room to negotiate with a man who knows he is about to die, but killing the Russian leader in Russia may be its own death sentence for Rapp. In the world of black-ops thrillers, Mitch Rapp remains the gold standard. Mills has embraced the high-concept-thriller style and continues to exceed expectations. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: A guaranteed best-seller, and deservedly so, at least for devotees of adventure-driven political thrillers.--Jeff Ayers Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "A highly original plot lifts bestseller Mills's outstanding fourth entry in the late Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series (after 2017's Enemy of the State). The president of Russia, Maxim Krupin, a vigorous, unrelenting dictator given to riding horses while shirtless and hunting wild bears, gets some bad news: there's a tumor in his brain that requires debilitating treatment and may kill him. To cover up his medical issues, Krupin calls in Gen. Andrei Sokolov, the head of the Russian armed forces and a trusted adviser, to execute a series of military actions that will allow Krupin to disappear without drawing suspicion from either the public or the many internal enemies who threaten his regime. Sokolov, even more of a psychopath than Krupin, plans to invade Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia in a surprise attack on NATO. Meanwhile, CIA director Irene Kennedy sends counterterrorism agent Rapp into Ukraine to figure out what's going on with Russia and Krupin. Events continue to escalate, and soon the situation is poised to go nuclear. Mills is writing at the top of his game in this nail-biter. Agent: Simon Lipskar, Writers House.
