"Flynn is a master--maybe the master--of thrillers in which the pages seem to turn themselves." (Book Reporter)
"Flynn has never been better." (Providence Journal)
“The biggest compliment one can give Mills is that it's totally unclear where Flynn's work ends and his begins, in The Survivor.” (San Jose Mercury News)
“Mills has created a wonderful tribute to Flynn while also writing a great novel. While thriller readers and fans miss Flynn, Mills was the perfect choice, and Rapp will continue in good hands.” (Associated Press)
“Mills perfectly treads the line of bringing his own considerable talent and style to the table while being respectful of the source material and seemingly channeling Flynn’s own voice.” (Bookreporter.com)
“The Survivor is truly a magnificent book.” (San Diego Book Review)
“The book is vintage Flynn/Rapp.” (The Post and Courier (Charleston, SC))
“Superb… the greatest post 9/11 series going.” (Providence Journal)
"Give this book a try." (The Daily Pundit)
“For readers who enjoy great spy and clandestine espionage novels, The Survivor is an excellent read. Plan on burning the "midnight oil" once the first page is read…destined to be a great success.” (Green Valley News)

However, I did find that the character and plot development was not quite as deep, and therefore realistic, as the Vince Flynn novels, but then he was genius.
What I did find disappointing, though, was the way Mitch Rapp has developed into some kind of god with even the CIA director kissing his feet.
They way they let Stan Hurley on that one mission was also totally unbelievable. These characters have clearly gotten too big, turning the suspense fiction into borderline fantasy.
Nonetheless, the story is well written, gripping, and, I think, well-deserving of the 4 stars I've given it.
I Here is my detailed review:
Hero: 4 stars
Heroine (Dr. Kennedy?): 4 stars
Plot: 4 stars
Writing style: 5 stars
Humor: 1 star
Action: 5 stars
Suspense: 5 stars
Romance: 0 stars
Sensuality: 0 stars
Ending: HEA; some loose ends, but no cliffhanger.
Would I read another book by this author? Probably.

It was okay, this wasn't Flynn and I could tell because this seemed ...less intelligent, more typical of all the other books of the genre.
I still enjoyed it, because it's Mitch Rapp but I know the writer is different so I'm not loving it like I normally would....read all the original books first and you'll get what I mean. It's good but it's not great!
You can tell that it isn't Flynn doing the story telling anymore, the wording is different to what he'd use and as mentioned by other people, this Mitch Rapp is a lot different to Flynn's version - I'm not sure yet whether that's a good or bad thing.
One thing you can tell the difference in, is the level of research shown by the two writers. Early on in the Rapp series, Vince Flynn had part of a book set in London and everything was well researched I thought. When Kyle Mills came to place Rapp in London, there was a ton of glaring errors, such as a "hundred pound note" that doesn't even exist or the cabbie using American slang. Even the description of the British spy wearing a bowler hat, expensive shoes and a suit coat seems wildly out of place and shows that the author has drawn on what Britain was like fifty years ago.
Overall though, a good read but I still miss Vince Flynn!
