Mitch Rapp has worked for a number of presidents over his career, but Anthony Cook is unlike any he’s encountered before. Cunning and autocratic, he feels no loyalty to America’s institutions and is distrustful of the influence Rapp and CIA director Irene Kennedy have in Washington. Meanwhile, when Kennedy discovers evidence of a mole scouring the Agency’s database for sensitive information on Nicholas Ward, the world’s first trillionaire, she convinces Rapp to take a job protecting him. In doing so, he finds himself walking an impossible tightrope: Keep the man alive, but also use him as bait to uncover a traitor who has seemingly unlimited access to government secrets. As the attacks on Ward become increasingly dire, Rapp and Kennedy are dragged into a world where the lines between governments, multinational corporations, and the hyper-wealthy fade. An environment in which liberty, nationality, and loyalty are meaningless. Only the pursuit of power remains. As “one of the best thriller writers on the planet” (The Real Book Spy), Kyle Mills has created another nail-biter that not only echoes the America of today, but also offers a glimpse into its possible future.

    Once again I was able to get an advanced readers copy of the new Mitch Rapp novel and Brett Arquette's lastest Hail novel. Decesions, decesions ... which to read first. I enjoyed the story, just wasn’t a fan of the ending. Kyle Mills is great but these just never live up to what they were with Vince Flynn as the author. Don’t get me wrong, still a great thriller and I look forward to what comes next!

Highly recommend Mitch Rapp series, but don't start with this one.

Having taken over with the passing of Vince Flynn, Mills had big shoes to fill, but has done a sensational job continuing this series yet again. When the world’s richest man is threatened, Rapp is sent by a new president to protect him, as well as learn who is leaking intelligence from the CIA. It will be one of the most harrowing missions Rapp has had to face, forcing him to wonder if he is ready to call it quits once and for all. Another winner that has me realising that there are some authors who know how to pick up the thread of a series and not ruin its momentum. With the election of a new president, America is in for a sobering future. Anthony Cook has his own ideas on how to run things and does not allow others to shape his opinions. This includes well-established CIA Director Irene Kennedy or her prized operative, Mitch Rapp. Both have been whispered about through the hallowed halls of the White House, but Cook is ready to stop that and show that he holds all the power. Kennedy brings some startling concerns to the president, that there is someone within the Agency scouring through sensitive intel and providing it to America’s enemies. The crux of the data leaks relate to Nicholas Ward, the world’s richest man. His work in the pharmaceutical field could change the lives of many, but if he falls into the wrong hands, there could be serious repercussions. President Cook agrees and allows Mitch Rapp to head out, in hopes of protecting Ward on the other side of the world. In Uganda, Rapp is tasked with finding and keeping Ward out of harm’s way. However, there will be issues, as a ruthless warlord has his eye on the man and all that he could bring in the form of riches. Rapp will have to struggle through unfamiliar terrain to protect Ward and get to the bottom of what has been a secret laboratory that possesses Ward’s scientific work, all while remaining off the radar. With no time to lose, Rapp must stay one step ahead and work with his skeleton crew, all while remaining in the shadows. Kennedy is relying on him, though it will be Rapp’s own intuition that propels him forward in this mission. No one is safe, least of all those who are not used to the tactics of cutthroat child soldiers in the jungles of Africa. Will Rapp finally realise that it is time to walk away, or does someone have a more drastic means by which to end Rapp’s career? A chilling story that keeps the reader guessing throughout. I’ve enjoyed the Mitch Rapp series from the beginning and my curiosity has never waned. When Vince Flynn passed on, I was sure things would come to an abrupt halt, but Kyle Mills was able to take over the reins and keep things moving. He has done a marvellous job at seamlessly creating a new tangent in the series without losing the flavour that Flynn brought to his thrillers. While Rapp has surely aged and become more of a family man (unheard of, usually), there is still a lot of spark left. I have no complaints! Rapp continues to dazzle in this piece, proving that he is both a force to be reckoned with and a highly entertaining character. His backstory long ago faded into the horizon, but he continues to develop effectively, including a makeshift family that only adds to his worry. Rapp proves to be gritty and soft hearted at the same time, though his questioning of missions and decisions has never waned. It will be interesting to see where the series will go from here, though I am sure Mills has some interesting choices to make before long. In a genre so full of rough and tumble characters, Mills has to differentiate Mitch Rapp from many of the others who are covertly out there saving the world. He has done so, using strong writing and a great narrative to keep the reader intrigued throughout the process. Unique settings and strong characters help to keep the reader coming back, as well as utilising great character backstories throughout the process. While the series has lasted many years, one can only wonder where Kyle Mills will take it, or if it is time to branch off. I am eager to see what’s next or how revelations within this story will impact future Rapp publications. Kudos, Mr. Mills, for another great piece. I am eager to see where you will take us in the coming years! Love/hate the review?

Action-packed and fast-paced as the previous books in the series, this new book also includes worldwide political intrigue played by billionaires and autocrats as intricate as a chess game with the common man as their pawns. If for some reason you have not read this series yet, this book is easily read as a standalone and a great place to jump in. Mitch Rapp is trying to find a new normal and balance in his life. He is working on recovering from the damage done to his body and rehabbing and strengthening with long-distance cycling. He is also finding he is more at home and happier with Claudia and Anna in South Africa on their vineyard than in their home in the United States. As he decides if he is out of the game for good, Irene Kennedy pulls him back in with a meeting between the new President, Anthony Cook and the world’s first trillionaire, Nicholas Ward when Ward’s research compound in Uganda is attacked and destroyed and the fate of his most valued scientists in unknown. Mitch has his reservations about the new administration, but Nicholas Ward hires Scott Coleman and his team and with Mitch along at point they enter the Ugandan jungle for a rescue op. This is just the beginning of an intricately plotted thriller that pits Mitch against a terrorist with a God complex and an army of drug fueled followers in the Ugandan jungle, a CIA mole at the highest level and a new President and First Lady with dreams of an autocratic dynasty. I am a Mitch Rapp Ambassador and love the whole series, but this book was a tour de force by Kyle Mills. He is able to emotionally mature Mitch Rapp without changing him so much that his fans would protest. The plot of this thriller not only keeps you turning the pages, but also makes you think and question the world order today of power and money, morally, politically, and scientifically. There are enough open-ended questions and powerful and dangerous people left for Mitch to be busy for quit a few more books and nothing could make me happier. I highly recommend this new Mitch Rapp thriller!

    Easily 5 stars. I honestly think this is Kyle Mills best Mitch Rapp Novel. It would be tied with Lethal Agent by him as his best works. From the opening page to the end, you can honestly read this book in one sitting. Its Action-packed, thrilling, mysterious, suspenseful, and emotional. Very few books gets me worked up that I needed to take a break from reading to calm down. Buy this book, buy all the Mitch Rapp books. You won't regret it. Easily 5 stars.

    Irene Kennedy, Scott Coleman, Joe Maslik, Bruno McGraw, Mike Nash, Fred Mason, and Marcus Dumond are all familiar names to Vince Flynn fans, but are they all "good guys"? Will one of them not be in the next Vince Flynn edition? Will one of them join the ranks of Stan Hurley and Thomas Stansfield? What about the richest man in the world and the brilliant scientist who wants to change the world, both targets of a diabolical terrorist?

What about the richest man in the world and the brilliant scientist who wants to change the world, both targets of a diabolical terrorist? Kyle Mills weaves all of these questions into Enemy at the Gates, as this, as usual, fast-paced novel moves from Uganda to Virginia to D.C. to South Africa and Saudi Arabia. And everything hinges on a mole high-up in the pecking order, so elusive that even Marcus Dumond can't crack his identity. Order Kyle's newest thriller to have it in September for the answers--and an ending that will shock you!

    Not the same solid story I have come to expect from the series. By the end, I felt like there was more to the story left untold. Like maybe 75 pages were missing. Rapp wouldn't have left things like that. This might be a setup for the next book. Good enough book. Just not what I've come to expect. Not the same solid story I have come to expect from the series.

Superbly written with edge-of-the-seat action, it focuses on the theme of betrayal, the kind of betrayal that damages not only a nation, but the kind that hits straight to the gut, that’s the most traumatic, the deadliest to the heart and soul, and the most personal. It’s a betrayal involving those caught in the middle and who suffer the repercussions of the most powerful players in the world squaring off against each other. The storyline opens with an assessment by Mitch Rapp and CIA’s Irene Kennedy of the condition of the nation after a government traitor took out the nation’s electrical grid for a month. It triggered a domino effect of hundreds of thousands of dead Americans from cold, violence, and absence of medical care. Exploding substations caused devastating fires and the world economy collapsed without its most powerful engine - us. Drawing an analogy to our own current elections, a young ,charismatic president has been elected. Known for his ruthlessness as a political strategist with an icy real politick view of the average American, Anthony Cook and wife Catherine ooze concern for their fellow citizens. Ms Kennedy and Rapp soon learn otherwise. They view political operatives as an infestation of the Beltway. A crisis in Uganda on the DRC-Congo border triggers a heads-up alert within the CIA. A vicious regional warlord, a psychopathic killer, Gideon Auma, has attacked a medical research compound on the Uganda -DRC border region, either kidnapping or killing the brilliant virology researcher David Chism, seen as the future savior of the Third World. In a White House meeting we are introduced to Nicholas Ward, the world’s first trillionaire, a philanthropist of world renown, and the backer of David Chism’s research. Unbeknown to the President, Nicholas Ward and Irene Kennedy are well acquainted, even friends, reflecting having sat at meetings with similar interests. Ward runs a massive foundation designed to resolve the problems of humanity in areas of health care, renewable energy, employment, violence and poverty. He has the Midas touch. President Cook is unappreciative of these sterling qualities. They interfered with his ambitious plans in the past and will not allow future machinations to be affected by this man. Cook makes it clear, he is not getting involved in what he states is a local Uganda Government affair.Thinking he has sidelined Kennedy, Cook insists on meeting Mitch Rapp, he needs an assessment to determine the usefulness of Rapp who he deems a potentially “powerful tool” who resonates with Love of Country, Loyalty to Comrades, and sees America as the shining Tower on the Hill. The kind of delusions easily manipulated is the thinking of this President, for he and his wife have nefarious plans. Since the grid attack, Mitch has been on a self-improvement mission,not only of home, but job, with new weaponry explored, and utilizing physical therapy to hone a body and future performance near that of a thirty-something operative. Scott Coleman has offered Mitch a full-time position with SEAL Demolition and Salvage( Rapp posse). Rapp is non-committal, until Coleman’s group are hired by Nicholas Ward to find David Chism’s party believed hiding in the jungle. Mitch acquiesces as Irene Kennedy has sent Nicholas Ward to him for assistance. Irene Kennedy is leery of this new President, and his wife, a highly successful hedge fund manager, who only view people in terms of usefulness to their agenda goals. Although of a newer generation, this President is a typical self-serving Washington,DC politico, one who commits to nothing unless it personally benefits the president. You are either a friend or an enemy. It used to be that the enemies were outsiders, but this is a new technological age, where now, the enemy can be found inside the circles of government. What happens when Enemy of the State becomes Enemy of the Administration.And what happens to those caught in the maelstrom and its aftermath? Loyalty to the individual now rates higher than loyalty to nation. Democracy can be chaotic at times, and autocracy demands all, not a sharing of power. Kyle Mills is postulating a deliberate analogy to today’s world. Did you take note? The Cooks see democracy as interfering in their autocratic lifestyle. Irene Kennedy’s biggest problem and worry, is her Agency being manipulated for the power it holds. Mitch refuses to pledge loyalty to Cook. Irene Kennedy shares Rapp’s viewpoint that politicians are not trustworthy. Kennedy’s antennae arise when the President lets operational status on a non-advised event slip out.Her concerns now are for Rapp’s safety and that of his operatives. What is more disconcerting is a mole at the top level of national security. Someone who is supplying the President with undisclosed top security info. Mitch and Scott Coleman, reaching the same conclusion, have begun conferring with select intell insider sources. A ticked-off American President is not conducive to smooth operations wherever they are executed. The question now is who is the mole revealing details of their operations and personal information on those involved in the operation. The President is enraged at Rapp’s interference that has cost him a considerable amount of monetary loss. Rapp is equally annoyed after rescuing an American special ops team who were set up to be executed and is determined to trace, track down the mole who set them all up. The plan? Set up Nicholas Ward as the bait. Neither Kennedy or Ward are happy about this decision; Rapp is adamant, the mole must be found. The stage is set involving some of the most cunning and powerful players on the world stage. For the President et al, it is all about money, his/their (Wall Street)money, as in betting on a sure thing and having the rug pulled out from underneath. For others, it is being trapped between two titans, both determined to win. It is much like a chess game. Move, and countermove. For one it is about loyalty to nation and comrades in arms.For another, it is personal loyalty. The mutual theme is betrayal and a no-win situation for all involved. ENEMY AT THE GATE is a superb novel of espionage,sabotage, political realities in today’s world, intrigue. It accurately depicts jungle warfare as it occurs in isolated regions of the world. Cannibalism is not an unheard of activity in the Third World. It is fighting at its most savage. The novel contains a look at how Mitch has settled down to commitment, a look at weaponry of future warfare. It is an examination of US politics. Kyle Mills’s analogy to how politics play out in the United States is stunning and very accurate. This is a study alluding to dictatorial takeover, autocracy by personality cult with loyalty to nation firmly kicked off its pedestal. Governments will be shaken to their core. For Mitch Rapp and Irene Kennedy, betrayal cuts to the heart with horrific reality and an OMG finish. It sets the stage for the next two books expected from Mills.It becomes an all out fight for Lady Liberty and her ideals. It is a novel designed to make Westerners stop and think. Ponder the direction we are all headed to, that is, if we are smart enough to realize what is happening and act accordingly. This novel is just superb, Kyle Mills! Kudos 5*!

    Hard-hitting action. Bond-like gadgets. Swelling suspense. Clairvoyant plotting. Gallows humor. Unsuspected betrayal. And a twist you’ll never see coming. Kyle Mills outdoes himself again with this latest addition to the Mitch Rapp saga. ENEMY AT THE GATES sucked me in immediately. And once I turned the last page I wanted more. *Needed* more. If you thought TOTAL POWER was the best in the series so far, wait until you get a load of this banger.

As usual the book is well written and sadly it ends to fast. It amazes me that there still can be a fresh twist on an American president with strange ideas after all the books I have read. I think they made a great decision when they let Kyle take over after Vince Flynn.

    Kyle Mills does it again.

Thank you to VinceFlynn .com, Emily Bestler Books, Atria Books, the Atria Mystery Bus, Kyle Mills and everyone else involved in selecting me as a Mitch Rapp Ambassador, and allowing me the opportunity to preread Enemy At The Gates, so that I can tell everyone that this is definitely a 5 Star, two thumbs up, 10/10 read.

    For the second year in a row, I have been honored to be chosen as a Mitch Rapp Ambassador and received an advanced copy of Enemy at the Gates (Mitch Rapp, #20) I will not bother to recap the synopsis of the novel, but I will focus on a few main points. First, I am very grateful that Kyle Mills has continued the Vince Flynn legacy. It is Vince's first novels (along with Clancy) that drew me into the genre enough that it prompted myself to start writing. Mitch Rapp could not have been left in better For the second year in a row, I have been honored to be chosen as a Mitch Rapp Ambassador and received an advanced copy of Enemy at the Gates (Mitch Rapp, #20) I will not bother to recap the synopsis of the novel, but I will focus on a few main points. First, I am very grateful that Kyle Mills has continued the Vince Flynn legacy. It is Vince's first novels (along with Clancy) that drew me into the genre enough that it prompted myself to start writing. Mitch Rapp could not have been left in better hands as the stories continue. The story picks up six months after Total Power with a new political administration flexing and a world weary Mitch Rapp doing what he does best. Fighting for what is right. Which may not align the wishes of the president., but that (of course) does not stop him. I will avoid posting spoilers, but I am glad that the main character has shown growth and it shows in his actions and thoughts. Should a character in a novel grow, change and learn over the decades? Yes! Rapp is worried about his weight, diet, exercise and family (not in that order). Perfect. Within the first chapter I was hooked and ended up reading 85% of the novel in one sitting. The only reason I didn't finish it in one bite - I had to work the next day and get up early! (Thanks Kyle for keeping me up late! lol) Several years ago, I was away with friends and someone handed me a glass of red wine. For a single 10oz pour, the value was about $75 (just a glass, not the bottle!) Wow! It was an incredible drink, and I treasured every sip. Same thing applies to Enemy at the Gates. I enjoyed every word and took my time to savor the story and treasure it. I know it will be at least twelve months until the next novel! I can easily place this novel as one of my favorites in the series. Make no mistake folks. The Mitch Rapp Legacy is in great hands with Kyle Mills and we get to reap the rewards of his efforts. Bravo Zulu.

    Enemy At The Gates, by Kyle Mills, is the 20th book in the Mitch Rapp series. Kyle writes amazing thrillers, and if that is what you enjoy reading, then this book, and in fact the entire series, is a MUST read for you.

I highly recommend you read the books in sequential order, to get the full effect of what is happening. This book picks up six months after Total Power ends and it alludes to what can happen with some of our government agencies, officials and situations, when an incoming President has a different agenda from the previous administration. Enter Nicholas Ward, the world’s first trillionaire and a request he has to find one of his employees who has gone missing, an employee who has been working on a vaccine that will protect the world against any coronavirus that may come our way. Can you imagine what that would do to multinational corporations and the uber wealthy who invest in them. How will they respond to protect their financial futures? Well of course this isn’t all that is going on, there is a mole in the government who is working against the rescue and that too needs to be solved and “addressed”. Our favorite characters, Mitch, Claudia, Irene and Scott just to name a few, are brought in to help rescue Mr. Wards employee. But with this new President and his completely different outlook as to how he feels the country should be run, there are conflicts and differences as to what Mitch and friends can do. If you want to know what happens, and how this affects our future, pick up Enemy At The Gates when it comes out September 14th, 2021. It will be one of the best books you have read this year. #MitchRappIsBack #EnemyAtTheGates

With Kyle setting up a villain unlike Mitch has ever faced on the home front, the next few books are going to be absolutely wild. Make sure to check out the full review

    I was fortunate to receive an ARC for this book. As a huge fan of Vince Flynn and his Mitch Rapp series, I always look forwards to the next Mitch Rapp saga. It took me two sittings to finish this one. Because this is an advanced copy, I won’t write any details. Just know I am still processing what I read…the ending of this book blew my mind and I absolutely cannot wait for 2022 and the next installment.

    Book Review – Vince Flynn’s “Enemy at the Gates” by Kyle Mills is Book 20 in the Mitch Rapp series and Kyle Mill’s best pieces of work out of the series! Mills picked up where “Total Power” left off and has Mitch Rapp searching for a high-level mole within the government with the power to rewrite the world order. Rapp and CIA Director Irene Kennedy are dragged into a realm where the lines between governments, multinational corporations, and the hyper-wealthy disappear. It’s an intense and extrem Book Review – Vince Flynn’s “Enemy at the Gates” by Kyle Mills is Book 20 in the Mitch Rapp series and Kyle Mill’s best pieces of work out of the series! Mills picked up where “Total Power” left off and has Mitch Rapp searching for a high-level mole within the government with the power to rewrite the world order. Rapp and CIA Director Irene Kennedy are dragged into a realm where the lines between governments, multinational corporations, and the hyper-wealthy disappear. It’s an intense and extremely dangerous environment in which authority, people, and trustworthiness are meaningless. Only the pursuit of power remains, and Mitch Rapp is caught in the middle of it all. Author Kyle Mills’ Enemy of the Gates is an action-packed, all-too-realistic vision of espionage intrigue. Mills has the story plot navigating the minefield of spying, counterintelligence, geo-politics, international business rules, government authorities, and the mega-wealthy. There were more twists and turns in this story than roundabouts on the streets of the District of Columbia. Mills created a plot that fully unfolds in a way that the reader becomes totally caught up a narrative that highlights it as a true espionage ‘thriller.’ Suspenseful. Gripping. Captivating, and Riveting are just a few expressions that explain Enemy at the Gates. Two-thumbs up to Kyle Mills, outstanding Mitch Rapp novel. I loved it! Thank you to Vince Flynn.com and Simon and Schuster Publishing for the Mitch Rapp Ambassador Exclusive Edition (Advance Reader’s Copy – ARC). I am honored and thrilled to be a Mitch Rapp Ambassador Advance Reader! ‘Mitch Rapp Is Back’ in Enemy at the Gates on September 14th.

A mole is discovered to have taken information on the richest man in the world, Nicholas Ward. Mitch teams up with Scott Coleman to protect Nicholas and at the same time discover the mole. I was a little nervous as I got into this book, the first part of the book was a little slow. I was afraid that Kyle Mills had lost his touch with delivering a top notch novel within the series. The rest of the book made up for the slow start. It was an easy five star book and One of the best books I have read this year. The characters are fantastic. President Cook is easy to hate and along with his wife, Catherine, they are a formable duo to challenge Mitch and Irene. The African terrorist Gideon Auma is sadistic, intelligent, and cunning. Along with his followers hopped up on some African drug they are a downright scary foe. It is a Mitch Rapp novel, so you expect action. Enemy At The Gates does not disappoint. There are multiple action scenes including an assault that features the defenders using a water cannon (I won’t spoil the scene by telling you more). Where Mr. Mills outdid himself was the way he made scenes without action have the same tension and draw as the action scenes do. This was especially true near the end of the book. It was easy to give Enemy At The Gate five stars. It lived up to the high standard Vince Flynn started and Kyle Mills has continued. This book has it all, strong characters, action, tension, and that overall let me just read one more chapter before putting it down. Thank you to Emily Bestler Books, VinceFlynn.com, Kyle Mills, Atria Books, and Simon and Schuster for an advanced copy of Enemy At The Gates for an honest review.

    There is a wolf in the White House and mole in the CIA and only Mitch Rapp can stop them both in Vince Flynn/Kyle Mills' newest work, ENEMY AT THE GATES!

Not only does Rapp have to stop the president's influence abroad, but Rapp, along with Scott Coleman, are tasked with saving the richest man in the world and using him as bait to snuff out the traitor in the CIA. Can the #1 badass on the planet survive the jungles of Uganda, the desert of Saudi Arabia, and the thoughts of walking away from it all for good? Kyle Mills does an amazing job of getting inside the mind of his characters, providing brilliant details to his readers of the innermost thoughts of each identity. After reading 20 books of a series, you don't think there are anymore plot twists left to discover...WRONG! Kyle Mills writes one of the greatest plot twists in the history of the Mitch Rapp series in the closing pages of this book! The end of this book left me, in a single word, shocked! I would like to thank VinceFlynn.com, Kyle Mills, and Atria Mystery Bus for the honor of being selected as a Mitch Rapp Ambassador for the third time. #MitchRappIsBack

Kyle Mills delivers what might be his best offering to the Mitch Rapp saga. Following the events of Total Power, Rapp is torn between the prospects of a normal life and the life he has known most of his adulthood.

    Back I had to pace myself with this book. I’ve complained about the past couple of books, but this one was hard to put down. I won’t go into any details about the characters, but suffice to say it was full of action and most importantly Mitch Rapp is back. Yippee

    Every time I read a Mitch Rapp book written by Kyle Mills, I end up liking it more than I initially intend to. Enemy at the Gates has one fatal flaw: It doesn't completely wrap up the story and Kyle Mills admits this (and has said so himself in his interview on The Crew Reviews), and I really don't like incomplete stories. In a way, this book takes it upon itself to set up a bigger and more important story and acts as some kind of introduction.

Still, though, the book does have its own story and its finale is satisfactory, I believe I'd be even more satisfied if I'd read more of the previous novels. I've said this before, let me say it again, I like Kyle Mills' Mitch Rapp books considerably more than Vince Flynn's. He makes it look easy, his work is fun, fast and feels like a written and printed summer action blockbuster. Is that a good thing? Yes. Yes it is.

    This is the 20th in Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series (the last several written by Kyle Mills after Flynn's death). I have read all of the previous 19 books and given every one 5 stars.

The first 100 pages were boring and then, although there were thrills and spills for the rest of the book, it was totally dissatisfying. Without giving away anything, all I will say is that what makes Rapp appealing is that he is the good guy that takes care of the bad guys. Unless Mills gets back to that formula, this series is going no where. Three stars based on seniority only.

    Kyle Mills' best Rapp book since "Order to Kill," and, in keeping with current events, this one shifts the series into a totally new direction, away from the latest jihadist terrorist of the week. This time Rapp's enemies are more amorphous, far reaching, and closer to home, and pose an existential threat to American democracy, a threat that Rapp may not be prepared or equipped to confront.
