An unprecedented and terrifying bioterrorism plot threatens to kill millions in the midst of a divisive presidential election in this new thriller 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 and privilege, 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 US. 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.

Not fully finishing the job haunts Mitch Rapp in the latest novel in Mills' continuation of the Vince Flynn series. When an ISIS leader whom Rapp attempts to assassinate escapes, Rapp is determined to close the deal. But so is the terrorist, who wants Rapp dead at all costs. If he can kill a few thousand Americans in the process, all the better, hence a bold plan that involves ISIS teaming up with a Mexican drug cartel to smuggle bioweapons across the border. Add a tumultuous election that threatens to weaken the country's intelligence community, and it's clear that Rapp will have to conduct his mission without his usual resources. Mills continues to keep Flynn's characters vibrant, entertaining, and relevant, the latter thanks to involving Rapp in timely global issues. The writing is stellar, and the action is nonstop, as always, continuing the legacy that makes the Rapp series the best of the best when it comes to the world of special ops. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: For military-action fans, Flynn was the gold standard, and Mills has done nothing to change that.--Jeff Ayers Copyright 2010 Booklist

Bestseller Mills's rousing fifth Mitch Rapp novel (after 2018's Red War) pits Mitch, the creation of Vince Flynn (1966--2013), against Mullah Sayid Halabi, an ISIS terrorist grievously wounded in an earlier battle with Mitch. Halabi, a man with a grudge, kidnaps Gabriel Bertrand, a brilliant French microbiologist, to assist him in spreading the deadly disease known as Yemeni Acute Respiratory Syndrome around the world. The only way Mitch can stop the plan is to sacrifice his personal life and go undercover into the ranks of Mexican cartel boss Carlos Esparza, whose minions are set to infect populations with the disease. Meanwhile, Senator Christine Barnett, a traitor, lusts to win the U.S. presidency, an ineffectual president just wants to sit out the remainder of his term, and an American electorate reacts only to partisanship and hatred. Despite these familiar plot elements, Mills makes them fresh and handles the writing as skillfully as Flynn as ever did. The pages will fly by. 8-city author tour.
