Kyle Mills has, much like Mitch Rapp, managed to perform what most would say was impossible in filling Vince Flynn's shoes. The way he has allowed the characters grow and change, all the while increasing the audacity of the plots is remarkable. 'Enemy of the State' was a phenomenal read, bringing us on an unexpected adventure, and giving us what I believe many of us have been hoping for ever since the return of Louis Gould - a team up of epic proportions. Assembling the dream team of assassins from Rapp's past was genious, and kept me on the edge of my seat as I worried about whether or not one of them would double cross Rapp. I have to say, this really could be my favorite book in the Mitch Rapp adventure.
I say all of this, in an effort to convey how thrilled I am with Kyle Mills. I sincerely hope he gets to keep the keys to the Mitch Rapp story, as I cannot wait to see what the future has in store. - Hunter
Thank you for selecting me as a Mitch Rapp Ambassador I received the advance copy of the Enemy of the State - My Husband will love this... he has read all of the books. The action is just like that of my father-in-law's real life in WWII (OSS). Thank You again. I can't wait for the movie. - Elisabeth
For the second consecutive year, I received my galley (advance copy) of Kyle Mills latest Mitch Rapp novel in mid-June. Once again, I opted to begin reading it on June19, the anniversary of Vince Flynn's tragic death. This latest novel takes us from the U.S. to Costa Rica, Europe, South Africa, North. Africa, and the Middle East.
There are, of course, many players from Mitch's past, including Joe Maslick, Steve Thompson, Stan Coleman, Marcus Dumond, Charlie Wicker, Mike Nash, Irene Kennedy, Grisha Azarov, Claudia Gould, Donatella Rahn, President Alexander and Joel Wilson.
Who would be an ally? Who would be an enemy? Who may be BOTH?
Once again, I'll use the same word to describe the literary style of both Kyle Mills and Vince Flynn: Seamless!
In The Survivor and Order to Kill, I cannot discern what VInce would have written versus what Kyle did write! If you're a Mitch Rapp fan, you will want to see how all of these far flung geographic locations and all of these past characters, plus some new ones, fit in the puzzle in Enemy of the State.
As a Mitch Rapp ambassador I was awarded an early copy of Enemy Of The State. The MItch Rapp ambassador program is amazing, and Mitch Rapp fans across the country want to be a part of it. The application process is easy, and ambassadors are still being chosen. Be sure to apply if you are a Rapp fanatic like I am.
After reading Enemy Of The State, I can honestly say that this continues the incredible run of books in the Mitch Rapp universe. Kyle Mills has done an outstanding job writing these books blending high octane action with an intelligent plot, that includes some humor at the perfect time. This book is highly entertaining, fast paced, and a thrill a minute! In fact, you should buy pre-order it because it is that good and you do not want to miss it.
Can't wait (for Enemy Of The State). Just finished Order To Kill. I have to say Kyle Mills has really captured Mitch Rapp and got him spot on. I've read all of the books and I was really worried but excited too when I heard the series would continue after Vince passed away BUT there was no need. They are just as good.- Phil B.
While traveling in Turkey this past week. I have read and reread all the books. Been my favorite author since my second trip in Iraq. Keep up the amazing work. Can't wait for the movie and can't wait for the next book!- SSG Michael Cunningham
I just finished listening to the latest book on tape (Order To Kill) while hiking in the mountains near Tucson. It was EXCELLENT.
I'm so glad that you are carrying on the baton from our beloved author Vince Flynn.
Your writing has captured Vinces' vision for the characters.
Thank you so much. I love your books!!
Over Christmas I was in CapeTown, South Africa with my family.
I have read all of the Mitch Rapp books except for the most recent one. I saw Order To Kill in a bookstore while waiting for my wife and girls at a mall and purchased it.
It was so neat to read about Mitch in South Africa.
The day before we had driven right by Franschhoek.
Order To Kill was an excellent read.
Mr. Mills did a great job!
Looking forward to the next one.
First off, Kyle, I think you have done an amazing job filling some unbelievably large shoes. I was very skeptical when they announced that you would be stepping in. I am so happy to say that I had no reason to worry. If the cover of book didn't say Kyle Mills on the cover, I would never had known there was a different author.
Onto my questions, will there be anymore books after Order to Kill?
Sure seemed like the door was left open.
I just received a copy of American Assassin in the mail.
I live in a retirement community where residents will donate books in our community center. I read the synopsis of Term Limits and knew this was my type of reading. WOW, a real page turner! I couldn't put it down.
I went back to the center and found 4 more Vince Flynn books. I found each book as addicting as the one before.
Unfortunately my granddaughter (20 months) liked Term Limits and American Assassin as toys and craft material.
I have purchased the first 3 books for four different family members. My youngest son and I have read every Vince Flynn book and discuss plots continually.
Although I had the entire series; the first two were a bit torn up and I had yet to replace them.
I forgot I had entered the Veterans contest.
Receiving this was like an early Christmas present. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will treasure my brand new copy of American Assassin, think I'll read it again!
Never contacted an author before. Just wanted to say that I just finished Order to Kill in one marathon session.
It is beyond a doubt the best Mitch Rapp yet!
Can't wait for the next one!
Kyle Mills is truly the extension of Vince Flynn! He has the vision, the dialogue, the humor, and keeps Mitch Rapp's legacy alive! Proud to have been an Ambassador!
I was a St. Paul, MN area resident and always was at the first book release at the Barnes and Nobel @ Har Mar with Vince Flynn...way back when he would 'hang out' and no security!
I was really worried, too. I am also an English teacher who notices the little differences. I can assure you, you will LOVE this book!
I was turned on to the writings of Mr. Vince Flynn by a colleague from the St. Paul area. I only wish he informed me sooner so I could have had an opportunity to meet the man behind the wisdom. This truly is one of the best series I have ever read and I look forward to finishing it. Currently I am about 2.5 books out from the written conclusion and I am very excited that CBS and Lionsgate are turning it into a movie (series I hope). If only I were a well known actor... Have a great day and Thank you for the gift of Mitch Rapp and the love Vince clearly had for his family and fans.
I just finished the galley copy I was sent as an ambassador of Order to Kill and let me say you don't want to miss this next chapter of the Mitch Rapp series. I was on the edge of my seat literally and just couldn't put it down and neither will you. So excited to see the wonderful writing Kyle Mills has brought, Vince would have been thrilled. Thank you for your hard work, it was such a joy to read and I can't wait until the next installment.

I am a physician who at one time considered joining the military and the Navy Seals. I have been a Scuba instructor for 37 years along with medicine, and a volunteer at local teaching hospitals and schools. I am a avid reader, and folks constantly ask me for suggestions. I never hesitate to recommend the Mitch Rapp series, and always recommend American Assassin to folks as they will be hooked to read the entire series. I rarely have folks tell me they only read one book, but usually thank me for giving them the next 14 additional books on their reading list. I was devastated at Vince Flynn's passing, but felt that Kyle Mills has done an excellent job in keeping his legacy alive. Even my wife (who doesn't read this genre) and my son are hooked, and can't wait for the next one to come out. It would be an honor and a privilege to be an Ambassador for such a wonderful book. Respectfully, David Granoff The picture submitted is my son and I after swimming from Alcatraz. This will be our 7th year doing the swim together.
I have read every book Vince Flynn has written, since he was recommended to me, and of course I became a Mitch Rapp fan.
When I read of his passing, I was really saddened.
When I heard that a Mitch Rapp book was out, but the author was Kyle Mills, I was curious. I read The Survivor and loved it !!!
Thank you Kyle for keeping Mitch Rapp alive in such a way. I bow down to your gift !
Now I have an author who I will always love and remember, and a new one to look forward to. Much success, from a sincere fan, Maribel
*** SPOILER ALERT *** THERE ARE SPOILERS FOR CONSENT TO KILL IN THIS EMAIL *** SPOILER ALERT ***
I have been reading the Mitch Rapp series for a few months in chronological order. I finished the Jack Reacher series and a fellow work mate put me onto Vince's series. Holy Dooley what a ride so far!!
Just finished Consent to Kill while riding the bus to work. From the moment Rapp entered Claudia and her baby's room my heart was in my throat and my eyes welled up as the scene unfolded. One of the best books I have EVER read in this genre!
I decided to send an email to Mr Flynn (this one), however during my internet search I found out about Vince's personal health battle and sadly loss of his life. On top of my already emotional state, it was only minutes after finishing Consent To Kill, it was all a bit much. Belated sympathies to his family and the greater reading world for the loss of a remarkable and talented writer as well as I'm sure a good bloke.
Looking forward to hunting and eliminating the evil of greedy bigots and radical extremists of our modern day world and having good triumph over evil in what sometimes seems a hopeless war. Go get em Rapp! Thanks Vince and Kyle

I just finished reading The Survivor and have to admit, that even though I was skeptical at first, you did an amazing job.
Without giving too much away to some out there that may read this before reading your book, there were some shocking and surprising moments, but overall a great continuation of our favorite "dark hero," Mitch Rapp.
Keep up the great work, I'm sure others will also comment positively about "The Survivor".
A True Mitch Fan,
I don’t read very many books nowadays, but Mitch Rapp has been the exception ever since the first time I cracked open Transfer of Power sometime around 2005. He’s been my absolute favorite character ever and I loved Vince’s writing.
Nothing against you, but I didn’t have high hopes for “the guy who took over for Vince”. However I can say that The Survivor grabbed me the way those first few Mitch Rapp books did. It was an excellent follow up to The Last Man. I just wanted to let you know that this Mitch Rapp fan thinks you’ve done an outstanding job keeping the series going and I am looking forward to your next Mitch Rapp book.
PS - Please don't let Hollywood screw it up.
