This fifteenth installment, which picks up mere weeks after the finale of The Survivor, finds Mitch Rapp squaring off against a Russian assassin who is not only Rapp’s equal, but may be even better. This is framed within a story of rogue Pakistani nukes and ISIS idiots, and a particularly violent, and personal, attack that strikes close to Rapp’s heart when a mission goes awry.
The most important element here for me, and one that I think Mills did a superb job with, was making Rapp a bit more three dimensional and human. In his latter books, Flynn was turning Rapp into very nearly a caricature of his former self, with his with-me-or-against-me attitude and desire to kill anybody who dared to disagree with him. Mills, thankfully, has dialed that way back and we see a Mitch Rapp who may finally be emerging from the darkness brought on by his wife’s death and who isn’t afraid to feel. While this certainly is not a guy who will soon be crying into his cup o’ tea anytime soon, there are certain events that occur here to remind Rapp that he is at least human and we see a man now seeking to reconnect with the people around him after so many devastating losses.
It’s these losses that I feel also highlight Mills work over these last two books. The operators and assassins of these novels are certainly men and women who fit into the Hero Worship mold pretty easily, and there’s a lot of extrajudicial fantasy stuff that goes into them (somebody says something about the Constitution you don’t like? Well, just snap their neck and grab a can of Coke afterward! And while we’re on the fantasy aspect, the next time one of these jihadist morons refers to our Christian Constitution, could we please have Rapp correct that erroneous, much too-widespread misunderstanding of this secular document before cracking their skull apart?), but too often they feel like larger-than-life superheroes. Mills has been working hard to make these people human, and while the characters are unquestionably adept and skilled at their jobs, they can still be hurt (and quite badly, at that) and killed. The Survivor presented a big shake-up to the status quo, and Order to Kill packs a certain punch of its own kind with a long-time series regular in serious danger.
Thanks to Kyle Mills, Order to Kill is one of the best, and certainly most satisfying, Mitch Rapp novels in quite some time. With high-stakes action and some much-needed emotional development, and perhaps even a hint of romance to come, for our series hero, fans of Vince Flynn can rest easy with Mills at the helm.
[Note: I received an advanced copy of this title for review from the publisher, as part of their #MitchRappAmbassador Program.]
Also, I was binge reading the first ten books. At first, I found it annoying that Flynn would re-introduce (or remind the reader of) every main character with a paragraph or two in each book (i.e. Scott Coleman, Marcus Dumond, etc.) On the 3rd or 4th book I would just skip those paragraphs because they were basically the same (and I would think "yes, I know that already..."). However, I haven't read a Mitch Rapp book in about a year since the last one came out. And although I remember every character I sort of missed those background details on each character and actually would have been nice to have those details. It worked for Flynn. I wouldn't change that.

There is a follow on in this from the previous book, the Russian leader has a vendetta against Rapp and sends his best killer after him, while scheming up a “spectacular” that will consolidate his position of power.
Not bad I repeat, but not the book I was hoping for and anticipating.
Its still Vince Flynn's book, but Kyle Mills has taken on the mantle and kept the series very much alive.
A real page turner, this is the second book with similar title (Kill Order and Order to Kill) I have read over my holidays and both proved to be top choices for a week in the sun.
Mitch and the gang are at it again on a new mission, superb read.
I'm not intending to get into the book here, I don't want to spoil the plot and I don't want to just repeat what it says on the back cover.
If you are a fan of Vince Flynn, Lee Childs, Jack Coughlin etc, then you will love Kylie Mills writing.
Stolen fissile material and perhaps the most talented opponent that Rapp has come across make for a very lively and inventive read. To say much more would spoil this for other readers, so I will conclude by saying that the ending was not only well worked out, but also very satisfying.
