Publisher's Summary

In the next thrilling novel in the number-one New York Times best-selling Mitch Rapp series, the anti-terrorism operative heads to Pakistan to confront a mortal threat he may not be prepared for. In fact, this time he might have met his match.

Mitch Rapp is used to winning.

But in this follow-up to number-one New York Times best-selling The Survivor, the CIA operative finds himself chasing false leads from continent to continent in an effort to keep Pakistani nukes from falling into the hands of terrorists. Together with friend and colleague Scott Coleman, Rapp struggles to prevent the loss of these lethal weapons, particularly because Russia is also interested in the nukes, though not for the same reason as Rapp and Coleman.

Soon, it becomes alarmingly clear that the forces in Moscow are bent on fomenting even more chaos and turmoil in the Middle East and Rapp must go deep into Russian territory, posing as an American ISIS recruit. There, he uncovers a plan much more dangerous and insidious than he ever expected, one that could have far-reaching and catastrophic consequences.

Written with the same breathless tension and heart-racing action as Vince Flynn's greatest novels, Mitch Rapp's latest adventure is as timely and provocative as ever.

Which way to that pasture?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I think Kyle Mills has picked up just where Vince Flynn left off. I love the direction the story has taken, WOW what a wild roller coaster of a ride: hoping for Mitch's old new friend to become more that just someone he protects, wondering what is going to happen with Scott, what's happening with the nuclear weapons, who is this new person after Mitch? And the list goes on.
As for people saying same old thing, I guess you could say that about all the popular series from Reacher and Davenport to Gentry, Rhyme and Ryan...
I enjoy series, it's like sitting down and catching up with an old friend and I am so glad this series will continue.
This book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
George Guidall gave an EXCELLENT performance as always.

Completely ignore negative ratings and reviews...

...Order to Kill was worth waiting for. Author Kyle Mills was true to Vice Flynn's style. He wrote a great political/espionage thriller. Vince Flynn has been my favorite author since Term Limits, his only novel with a protagonist other than Mitch Rapp, in 1997. Beginning with his introduction of Mitch Rapp in Transfer of Power in 1999 I have anxiously awaited his next Rapp novel. Every one has earned 5 stars! Vince Flynn is simply the best author of political/espionage thrillers ever; he was the master! The characters are vivid, the technology true, and the stories credible. Vince's death from prostate cancer in mid 2013 felt like the loss of a very close friend to me.

I hoped that Mark Greaney would take over the Mitch Rapp franchise because he is the second most talented author of the genre ever. When Kyle Mills was selected instead I had grave doubts. After The Survivor in 2015 and now Order to Kill those doubts have been put to rest. Kyle Mills is true to Vince Flynn.

Every Mitch Rapp novel is a 5 star treasure. Add Order to Kill to that list. George Guidall has narrated to perfection the 12 most recently released audiobooks in the series.

Order to Kill joins Term limits and the prior 14 Mitch Rapp novels in having my highest possible recommendation.

Strong, fast paced, good vs. evil story

Any additional comments?

Written by Kyle Mills in tribute to Vince Flynn, this is the second book in the "Mitch Rapp" series since Flynn passed away in 2013. And tributes they are! Mr. Mills has truly done justice to a series that Vince Flynn began in 1999. It is nearly impossible to feel the difference between the stories conceived and written by the amazing original author and Mills.
In this latest installment, the hero Mitch Rapp and his regular supporting cast are tracking what they believe to be an al-Qeada operation to steal and detonate loosely guarded tactical nukes of Pakistan. But because of deception and possible insider double dealing, Rapp and his team are a step behind and frequently endangered by seemingly bad intel.
So, at first glance (and maybe second and third) the story is stock and hackneyed: Bad guys with only slight techno skills want nukes and good guys move heaven and earth to prevent that. But there are very good twists, turns and motivations that refresh the old saw and turn it into a sterling silver story.
George Guidall being one of three, in my opinion, exceptional narrators for this genre of story (the others being Dick Hill and Ray Porter) the story is unmarred by horrible accents and overacting frequently found in books where Middle Eastern and European accents abound. Guidall does a fabulous job of letting the story talk, not trying infuse it with his own brilliance... which makes him brilliant!
The story is fast paced keeping the action moving without being weighted down by so many characters and subplots that you need a computer and scoring app to keep track. Enjoyable and different, this is a great book even if you have not had the chance to enjoy the previous books in the series.

Mitch Rapp is dead, long live Mitch Rapp!

The Mitch Rapp that Vince Flynn created is my favorite fictional character of all time. The Mitch Rapp in this book is not the same guy. In fact, I am not even sure Kyle Mills ever read a Mitch Rapp book written by Flynn.

Personally, I was not happy when Kyle got this series. I was also a huge Covert One fan, but when Kyle took that series after Ludlum, the tempo of the story, nature of the characters, and quality of the plots suffered. I had hoped that Kyle would stay true to the Mitch Rapp universe, but alas, he did not.

Flynn's Mitch Rapp would have never put himself in a position where he had to kill an innocent. There was no moral ambiguity: innocents and law enforcement were off limits. That was a Hurley rule. Kyle decided that rule doesnt matter anymore. But by ignoring the rules established for the series in the beginning by Flynn, Kyle has, in my opinion, ruined the series completely.

If this were an original series by Kyle, I would say it was a decent book. But as a Mitch Rapp book, I am disappointed.

As always, Guidall was brilliant. He is my favorite narrator. Maybe he should start writing Mitch Rapp instead. I am sure he knows the character better than Mills.

It is sad to say, but the real Mitch Rapp died with Flynn. Vince, I hope you are in heaven now, but we miss you down here.

so sad the book is over

Would you listen to Order to Kill again? Why?

Yes. George Guidell is Mitch Rapp. This is an excellent book.

What did you like best about this story?

This book continued the Mitch Rapp series in a very consistent, but interesting way. I don't like to give spoilers so I won't, but it didn't disappoint.

Any additional comments?

Enjoy. You will like it if you liked the other books.

Good story, but just not the same.

What did you like best about Order to Kill? What did you like least?

Best: The return of Mitch Rapp. Least: The lack of depth, character development, and flat plot development.

Would you recommend Order to Kill to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes, to those that love Rapp.

What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I would not be a Mitch Rapp book without George Guidall!

Was Order to Kill worth the listening time?

Yes

Any additional comments?

I know there is a lot of discussion on wether this matches up to Vince Flynn's version of Rapp. I have listened to all of the Mitch Rapp books and have enjoy them all. While I greatly enjoyed the return of Rapp and the story, I just had an overall sense that this was not the same Rapp. Vince Flynn had a gifted ability to build tension in his novels until the plot reached an action packed crescendo. For example, books like Extreme Measures had my heart racing, and even though I knew the protagonist would come out on top, there was a sense that he might not. And in every book, there was character development. Even though we all knew Rapp like our high school best friend, he continued to grow. While new relationships emerged in this book, there was no depth or growth. Last, I feel that some of the decisions Rapp made in this book, Flynn's version would not have done. I could point out several examples, but I don't want to give away spoilers. Now, having said all that, I am glad that Mills in carrying the torch. I would happily listen to any book about Rapp than none at all, and I am excited to see where Rapp's story goes. I just want to see more of Flynn's Rapp.

RECKLESS

There are many words to describe Mitchell Rapp, but Reckless is not one of them. Rapp is usually more calculated, in the words of Irene Kennedy and Thomas Stansfield " his situational awareness in knowing when to push forward and when to wait is uncanny". This Mitch Rapp was very impulsive, he seems to do things in a way that Victor and Doozer would. As I was listening to this book I found myself shouting, what the hell are you doing to my hero? Why was there no political plot whatsoever?

I've listened to this series maybe five times over, I found myself struggling to listen to the last two a second time and probably won't.

R.I.P. Vince

Much anticipated-good listen

I'm an avid Vince Flynn -Mitch Rapp reader/listener. And anything read by GG is incredible!
The pace in the beginning was fast & "can't STOP listening ", slowed a bit but never faltered.
Given that I've read all of the original Vince Flynn's so many times, it was clear to me that this wasn't truly his writing (RIP VF💜).
I missed the team/personality interactions as it was a lot of solo Mitch. SPOILER alert: The pre-release tease of this talks about Scott & Mitch so I was disappointed that Scott disappeared so early on. And I found myself thinking "if they kill Scott...I'm all done" lol.
The ending was also predictable, and not terribly dramatic. But leaves the door open for future adventures there.
The Claudia relationship could've been more detailed as well. It was just surface stuff- given the intensity of the history it didn't address it well enough.
BUT- Mitch is still one of my favorites & always will be. Finished listening in 1 day!
