John shares his thoughts about Kyle Mills and the next Mitch Rapp series novel, the Survivor.
On the back jacket cover of Kyle Mill's first novel, RISING PHOENIX, Tom Clancy said that this book "launches a new genius for taut, compulsive adventure writing into some of the most complex and morally ambiguous subjects of the day." Since that debut, 17 years ago, Mill's writing career has grown with over a dozen bestsellers, including two Covert-One novels written for Robert Ludlum.
Now he takes on one of biggest challenges of his career - MITCH RAPP. Mills has been chosen to complete The Survivor, the book Vince Flynn was writing at the time of his death, and then he will write two additional Mitch Rapp novels. The Survivor releases in the fall of 2015.
"I'm really honored to have been asked to continue the Mitch Rapp series," Mills said, "Vince was a great guy . . . I'm looking forward to the challenge of continuing an iconic thriller character."
Mitch Rapp rocked my world when he first came on the scene, and I waited eagerly for the next installment. Kyle Mills is a wonderful choice who will jump in where Vince Flynn left us, moving RAPP into recent events , protecting us from those who would do us harm.
