"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."

Love Mitch Rapp. Loved the book. Keep writing them.

Disappointing awkwardly facilitated beginning - multiple components/players not developed.

Almost slapstick comic conclusion - story line remained on basic theme, but approaching totally implausible - even for our man Mitch Rapp.

Was a pain reading conclusion. Sorry... Didn't like it...

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.

Readable......a quickie.

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.

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.

In The Survivor,Mitch Rapp has been turned into a foul mouthed,unlikable all Vince Flynn's previous books and loved them.Kyle Mills is not doing Flynn justice

Really slow beginning, I almost quit reading, but being this a Vince Flynn/Mitch Rapp book, I persevered. I like books that just suck you right in and won't let go until the very end. This book took quite a while for something interesting to grab my attention and draw me in. Once things finally started to get moving, the story became much more interesting and more like the Rapp books I am familiar with. I just wish that they could have skipped ahead to the good stuff. I gave this book four stars because of the beginning not grabbing my attention and instead left me wondering if I should continue. I hope that any future books will jump right into the action first and grab a hold of the reader's attention.

The major problem I have with this story are the multitudes of innocent deaths without much recompense. I believe in an eye for an eye. Despite the fact some claim a seamless transition between Mitch Flynn & Kyle Mills, I contend Flynn's evil doers got theirs through Mitch Rapp justice which is missed in Survivor. My favorite Kyle Mills story is Fade. Survivor is no Fade. Flynn didn't always hit home runs either, (nor did Babe Ruth). While I feel Last Man is excellent, I feel Kill Shot is not and reflected similarly in my Survivor rating. 4 of 10 stars
