    I think a bump up from 3.75 stars works here!Kyle Mills is back with another of Vince Flynn’s classic novels of espionage, where Mitch Rapp finds himself in the middle of yet another international skirmish. After an attack on a prominent Russian in Central America, Rapp and those high-up in the CIA take notice, sure the Russian Government is involved. While they ponder how to handle this, Rapp is left to wonder what else Moscow might be plottin...

    Kyle Mills opens his fourth Mitch Rapp thriller (since taking over the series following the passing of Vince Flynn in 2013) with Russian President Maxim Krupin standing in his Kremlin office looking down at the protestors filing into Red Square. The growing backlash and constant threat of being overthrown is annoying to Krupin, but it’s the inoperable brain cancer that he was secretly diagnosed with that proves most troubling.At first, Krupin...

    As a Mitch Rapp Ambassador, I took my time reading Red War, as I never wanted the experience to end. Well, it finally came to a conclusion tonight, and Kyle Mills did not disappoint.When Mills first introduced us to Grisha Azarov in Mills' first complete novel since taking over the Flynn franchise, he formed the most formidable opponent Rapp had ever met. The way Mills weaves Grisha into this plot is fantastic and dramatic. As you can see from th...

He has done a tremendous job of carrying on Rapp from the Vince Flynn era and he continues to create amazing, from the headlines Thrillers! Mitch is still himself and it’s clearly vivid and amazing how awesome Mills is at storytelling. I was hooked from the beginning and couldn’t have thought of a better storyline for this one. I don’t like to give spoil...

    Full Disclosure Notice - I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher as part of their Mitch Rapp Ambassador program.Madmen are rarely credited with making rational decisions. When they are global leaders like Russian president Maxim Krupin, the absence of rational thought processes is magnified because of their effect on the rest of the world.So it is little surprise that when he learns that he has inoperable brain cancer, he lashe...

    I was sure that when Vince Flynn passed away, I'd be fare welling my favorite counter terrorist operative for the CIA too, but thankfully the series is in very safe hands with Kyle Mills. I've read all the books in this series and am still like a kid in a candy store, every time a new installment comes out. Grisha Azarov, once was russia's foremost assassin is targeted by his boss president Krupin after he retires, the CIA intervene and Rapp save...

    Full disclosure I was given a free advance copy of this book for an honest review. I was super excited to get this book in my hands, and it didn’t disappoint. Russian President Maxim Krupin has a brian tumor that threatens his control of Russia. He is out to eliminate his competition while drawing the West into World War III. Mitch Rapp is called on to save the day. Mr. Mills wastes no time getting into the action as there is a major action sce...

    Mitch Rapp is back in Red War in what I believe to be Kyle Mills’ best work yet. A task I didn’t think was possible after my personal favorite Order to Kill since taking over writing duties in 2014 for the series. Red War starts off with the Russian President Maxim Krupin watching his country evolve into something a little more daring, something that just a few years ago would have been unthinkable. The “pampered” new generation is growin...

    With all that’s going on in Russia today, Kyle Mills delves into a relevant and frightening scenario. What if the Russian President is diagnosed with an inoperable brain cancer, with unfulfilled visions of the Motherland being brought back to her previous glory? If the illness is going to take him down, then what’s to stop him from confronting Europe in a ground war or even strategic nuclear missiles? Yes, the only thing that might be able th...

    I was given an advanced readers copy of Red War as part of the Mitch Rapp Ambassador program. I have been asked for a spoiler and quotation free honest review. This novel written by Kyle Mills continues the Mitch Rapp series that was created by the late great Vince Flynn. Kyle Mills has done what I never thought could be done; he has continued the series without missing a beat. This book has it all and I can't wait for longtime fans and new reade...

    An outstandingly-plotted, fascinating read. Definitely the best Rapp novel Mills has authored, and an outstanding thriller regardless of comparisons.

    A great thriller about the threat of dying Russian president. Mitch Rapp saves the day again.
  • Nilesh
    1970-01-01
    Mitch Rapp stories worked because of Rapp's character, which was in equal measure superhero-isque and genial. Mr Mills is unable to take good advantage of either of these qualities. Red War is a classic Wag the Dog kind of tale, that is not only too predictable and illogical (characteristics of most of Flynn's books too), but also excessively focussed on stereotypical and uninteresting bad guys. The story and action scenes have hardly any twists ...

    I received an Advance Reader’s Edition from the publisher as part of the Mitch Rapp Ambassador Program. Mitch Rapp is back as he works on probably one of the biggest threats he has ever faced. It’s Rapp vs. Russia - who will win? Wonderful job done by Kyle Mills as he continues to carry the Mitch Rapp torch created by Vince Flynn. #MitchRappIsBack #RedWar

    Stop what you're doing, and if you haven't read any of the Mitch Rapp books by Vince Flynn/Kyle Mills, you are in for a treat. Start from the beginning with American Assassin (actually a Prequel to the original books, but chronologically correct) and get ready to start your new addiction. Folks always talk about binge watching a show, but now you can binge read a series. I read a book or two a week, but all is put away when the newest Mitch Rapp ...

    Slight Spoiler Alert!I have been a huge fan of Vince Flynn ever since I first read American Assassin. Mitch Rapp is undoubtedly my favorite hero of all time. His journey from a young man to a hardened warrior in the fight against terrorism, is one I never get tired of exploring again and again. With Red War, I was a little worried if it would match up to my expectations, but the moment I laid my eyes on the first page itself, I knew my worries we...

    I am grateful to have gotten an advanced, unedited proof ahead of the official publication date and this is my review. I feel like Vince Flynn is the modern master of this genre. Mills had a difficult, nearly impossible task when asked to take over this series. But Mills has done an amazing job. He has kept the essence of Mitch Rapp intact, but, I hate using this phrase, but here it goes. He has also "made it his own." He has taken the character ...

    Red War by Kyle Mills is, I believe, the best in the series to date. Since taking over the franchise, Mills has taken Vince Flynn’s characters and elevated them to ever more impressive heights. I know that can’t have been easy, and is a testament both to the solid foundation Flynn laid early in the series and Mills’ own creativity and ability to build on it.I was happy to see the setting changed to Russia for a refreshing change of pace fro...

    Very timely subject matter. Setting that aside, I'm glad to see Russia become the villains of recent novels again. I'm beyond tired of religious extremists being the go-to antagonists of the genre. Maybe I'm showing my age—maybe it's just time to mix things up again.In any case, Rapp is back. He's more of a team player than ever before. That seems like an evolution for the character as well. Some of the recent character shifts and turns become ...

    As a Mitch Rapp Ambassador, I was given a copy of this book before its release. As a huge Vince Flynn fan, I am always hesitant with a different author taking his character on another journey. Kyle Mills did not disappoint with the continuation of Mitch Rapp and his protection of the US. I was invested from the first chapters and couldn't put the book down. As always, I am disappointed when I am finished and can't wait for the next one. Definitel...
