Fiction. Suspense. Thriller. HTML:An unprecedented and terrifying bioterrorism plot threatens to kill millions in the midst of a divisive presidential election in this "gut punch of a tale that exploits our greatest fears" (The Providence Journal) from the #1 New York Times bestselling Mitch Rapp series.
A toxic presidential election is underway in an America already badly weakened by internal divisions. While politicians focus entirely on maintaining their own power, ISIS kidnaps a brilliant French microbiologist and forces him to begin manufacturing anthrax. Slickly produced videos chronicling his progress and threatening an imminent attack are posted to the internet, intensifying the hysteria gripping the United States.

ISIS recruits a Mexican drug cartel to smuggle the bioweapon across the border, but it's really just a diversion. The terrorist organization needs to keep Mitch Rapp and Irene Kennedy distracted long enough to weaponize a deadly virus that they stumbled upon in Yemen. If they succeed, they'll trigger a pandemic that could rewrite the world order.

Rapp embarks on a mission to infiltrate the Mexican cartels and track down the ISIS leader who he failed to kill during their last confrontation. But with Washington's political elite increasingly lined up against him, he knows he'll be on his own.

Another stellar and white-knuckled thriller, Lethal Agent proves that "Mitch Rapp is the hero we need, maybe now more than ever" (The Real Book Spy).

This book almost deserves a five star except for two things...

Rapp and his team has the ability to completely fool the cartel into thinking Rapp went rogue. And then in another part of the story another bad guy goes into a village where a highly contagious disease was running rampant and nobody from his team even considered the possibility that he went there to attempt to spread the disease and cause a pandemic. Really Kyle, you don't think Rapp and his team are smart enough to even consider that as a possibility. I found myself extremely frustrated throughout the entire book because of this. The entire book was written around solving a mystery that a real CIA officer would have solved in five minutes. I get that this is fiction but I like my fiction to have a feel of realism.

The second thing I did not like was that the premise of the story will be familiar to readers of the series; bad guy from the Middle East trying to destroy America, corrupt politicians in Washington trying to put Kennedy and Rapp in prison for life. Sound familiar?

Having said that...I did give it four stars. I do like Kyles writing style. He injects humor in the books and the nonstop action makes for a good read. ( )

Male Bodice Ripper to the extreme, and I love it.

Now working unofficially for the CIA, Mitch is confronted with an enemy from his past. Mullah Sayid Halabi, thought dead and buried in a Northern Iraqi cave, has resurfaced. He has 2 goals in life-annihilate the western infidels and get hands on Rapp and torture him to the fringe of death.

Halabi was acquired a bio-weapon that could well accomplish the first, as for the second-we all know Mitch is not going down easy.

The Political Climate written reflects the real world state of affairs. Mills blends The Beltway nonsense and the unstable, infighting ABC agencies, and Congressional buffoons we deal with flawlessly. In another time his writing would make me shake my head and say "no way would that happen". HA! We know now it could!

With Vince Flynn's untimely passing, Kyle Mills took over the series. Five books in I am finally comfortable with his style and handling of the characters that Flynn had me loving. Mills has made Rapp a bit more human, and I adore the sense of humor that the character is showing.

If you love a good thriller, this one is great!

ISIS mastermind and psycho Sayid Halabi was left for dead in a cave in Northern Iraq; however, cockroaches are notoriously difficult to kill. He has two priorities in life: getting even with Mitch Rapp, and returning the world to the Dark Ages. So, he discovers a virulent disease in a remote area and attacks the Doctors without Borders post there to draw in Mitch Rapp and team. Halabi barely escapes with his life, and a disease specialist, whom he tortures to manufacture anthrax. Partnering with a drug cartel, the anthrax is smuggled to the U.S. Meanwhile, dirty politics in Washington by a power-hungry Senator endangers the current political leadership, including Irene Kennedy and Mitch. When Mitch figures out Halabi's real agenda, he goes undercover rogue. Lots of action and intrigue, but still not as good as Vince Flynn. ( )

Yay! Rapp is back and not as a secondary character as he was in the "Red War". I like the plot in Lethal Agent, a very possible and scary scenario. Something about Rapp and Claudia's relationship bugs me from day one and still does. ( )

Although Kyle has his own style of writing, I really like what he is doing with Mitch Rapp!!!! ( )
