Joseph "Rick" Rickman, former boy wonder at the CIA, stole a massive amount of top secret and hugely compromising intel concerning classified operations all over the world, offering it (and himself) to the Pakistani secret forces. Only his plans went awry when CIA director Irene Kennedy sent Mitch Rapp to hunt him down. It turns out that killing Rickman didn't solve anything -- in fact, the nightmare is only intensifying. Rickman stored the potentially devastating data (CIA assets, operatives, agents) somewhere only he knew, and somehow, from beyond the grave, he still poses a mortal threat to America. Now it's a deadly race as both the Pakistanis and the Americans search for Rickman's accomplices and the information they are slowly leaking to the world.Will Rapp outrun and outthink his enemies, or will the Pakistanis find it first and hold America hostage to their dream of becoming the world's new nuclear superpower?

A blistering novel that picks up where The Last Man left off, The Survivor is a no-holds-barred race to save America…and Mitch Rapp’s finest battle.

When Joe “Rick” Rickman, a former golden boy of the CIA, steals a massive amount of the Agency’s most classified documents in an elaborately masterminded betrayal of his country, CIA director Irene Kennedy has no choice but to send her most dangerous weapon after him: elite covert operative Mitch Rapp.

Rapp quickly dispatches the traitor, but Rickman proves to be a deadly threat to America even from beyond the grave. Eliminating Rickman didn’t solve all of the CIA’s problems—in fact, mysterious tip-offs are appearing all over the world, linking to the potentially devastating data that Rickman managed to store somewhere only he knew.

It’s a deadly race to the finish as both the Pakistanis and the Americans search desperately for Rickman’s accomplices, and for the confidential documents they are slowly leaking to the world. To save his country from being held hostage to a country set on becoming the world’s newest nuclear superpower, Mitch Rapp must outrun, outthink, and outgun his deadliest enemies yet.

I've never read Vince Flynn before and didn't realize that this book wasn't written by him. The book was very boring and I couldn't get past page 49. Whoever wrote this book doesn't know how to grab a reader's attention. Since I bought this book I just threw it in the garbage.

I like the Mitch Rapp character but despite the constant action in the book, the plot was very thin and the writing was not the best

There was a decent book in there somewhere but I didn't find it-let Flynn die and don't screw up his work with ghost writing.

I've struggled to read this book. Flynn's books were always engaging and captivated me from the first page turn. This has been an exercise in endurance, one where the book wins as I will not finish it. I'm so very disappointed in the writing, the editing and most of all, the characters.

Slow, boring. Lots of political intrigue, but low on action. I'm being generous w/ 3 *'s.

Enjoyed the book although Kyle Mills writing style wasn't quite up to Vince Flynn's standard!

I've read all of the Vince Flynn books and enjoyed them immensely; Mitch Rapp is a great character. In The Survivor, while I enjoyed the action, I kept thinking that Mitch Rapp has become a not very likeable thug.

I have read every vince flynn/mitch rapp I could find. Enjoyed them all. Vince Flynn is amongst my favorite authors (Jack Higgins,James Patterson,Tom Clancy,Robert Ludlum). His is a writing style that will be sorely missed. RIP.
