The Survivor by Kyle Mills

The Survivor (Mitch Rapp #14)The Survivor by Kyle Mills
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

When I started this book I actually wondered if I could finish it. The first fifty or so pages were just a jumble of words before it started to clear and the storyline emerged. From then on it gripped me and entertained me to the end. Mitch Rapp is a top CIA operative tasked with routing out secret files compiled with intent of destroying the agency. It is soon clear the Pakistan intelligence service is competing to get hold of these files. The whole book is a scary view of what the agencies designed to protect Joe Public get up to. Alongside is an even more scary view of American politics and the power hungry politicians. Overall the action is very entertaining in the same vain as Bond with some world domination desires also thrown in. Worth a read but be patient with the start.
