Top secret data has been stolen from the CIA, and the only man who knows its hiding place is dead. CIA operative Mitch Rapp must race to find the classified information in this blistering novel that picks up where The Last Man left off in Vince Flynn's New York Times bestselling series. 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?

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.

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
