This fall, get ready for a Red War, because Mitch Rapp is back and he’s taking on Russia in the all-new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kyle Mills.
Following last year’s mega-popular thriller Enemy of the State, Mills is dialing things up a notch with his next book, the 17th entry in Vince Flynn’s beloved franchise. Back at the beginning of February, I caught up with Mills who, at the time, told me he was “only a few weeks away from finishing the manuscript,” and that he was “really excited about how it turned out.”
We’re obviously much further along in the production process now, as the book has since been given a title and now, just today, an official cover. Check out the cover and plot details below!
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.
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).
Red War is scheduled to hit bookstores on October 2, but is already available for pre-order here, or anywhere else books are sold! In the meantime, make sure you’re following Kyle Mills on Twitter and Facebook, and that you’re signed up for his (and Vince Flynn’s) official newsletter.
