Oath of Loyalty Audiobook Summary
Named the Best Thriller of 2022 by The Real Book Spy
Mitch Rapp–“the best hero the thriller genre has to offer” (The Real Book Spy)–confronts a very different kind of killer in this explosive addition to Vince Flynn’s #1 New York Times bestselling series, written by Kyle Mills.
With President Anthony Cook convinced that Mitch Rapp poses a mortal threat to him, CIA Director Irene Kennedy is forced to construct a truce between the two men. The terms are simple: Rapp agrees to leave the country and stay in plain sight for as long as Cook controls the White House. In exchange, the administration agrees not to make any moves against him.
This fragile detente holds until Cook’s power-hungry security adviser convinces him that Rapp has no intention of honoring their agreement. To put him on the defensive, they leak the identity of his partner, Claudia Gould. As Rapp races to neutralize the enemies organizing against her, he discovers that a new type of assassin is on her trail.
Known only as Legion, the shadowy killer has created a business model based on double-blind secrecy. Neither the assassin nor the client knows the other’s identity. Because of this, Legion can’t be called off nor can they afford to fail. No matter how long it takes–weeks, months, years–they won’t stand down until their target is dead. Faced with the seemingly impossible task of finding and stopping Legion, Rapp and his people must close ranks against a world that has turned on them.

A kinder, more gentle Mitch Rapp awaits you in Oath of Loyalty. Nah, just kidding. I don't want to give away anything so I'll just say this. I think it is safe to say Kyle Mills was absolutely the right choice to continue Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series. Lets not kid ourselves, Mills had a great foundation to build off of. Which makes what Mills is doing all the more incredible. Usually, when authors continue another authors' series, say like Clancy or Ludlum, its a revival of sorts. To bring new life into a beloved character/s. I imagine it is a little easier when said legend hasn't written about the series recently and isn't at the pinnacle of their careers. When Flynn left us, he (and Rapp) were near, or at, the apex of his career. For Mills to come in and, not only meet the challenge, but exceed it is simply incredible. I can only imagine how thrilled the Flynn estate is with Mills and the direction he is taking Rapp. I know his fans are.Thank you to the Vince Flynn estate, Atria Books, and Emily Bestler for the absolute privilege of reading an advance copy of Oath of Loyalty.

Check out all my reviews at: https://www.avonnalovesgenres.comOATH OF LOYALTY (A Mitch Rapp Novel Book #21) by Kyle Mills is another edge-of-your-seat thriller featuring Mitch Rapp. This series never disappoints, and I wait anxiously every year for a new story where democracy is on the line and Mitch and his team come to the country’s defense, but this time his family is on the line too.When the current President of the United States is scared and backed into a corner, it leads to paranoia that a power-hungry CIA director is more than happy to exploit. Mitch Rapp and Irene Kennedy has brokered a deal with the President which allows Mitch to live out his life as long as he remains out of the country and in plain view of surveillance. The new CIA director can use the truce as a means to get closer to the President and to increase his control he convinces him that Rapp has no intention of honoring their truce. They release the true identity of Mitch’s wife, Claudia, to her enemies from her past to keep him too busy protecting her to attack the President.A shadow assassin known as Legion accepts the contract. No one knows who Legion is and no one can call Legion off. Mitch, his team and some old contacts and friends from his past must work together to stop Legion, protect Claudia, and take care of the threat the present administration poses to his family and friends.Once again, Kyle Mills hit it out of the park! Mitch is feeling his age and wants to find some peace with his family and friends and leave the saving of the world to others, but it is not to be. The story takes readers all over the world and the tension level is high. I love how Mr. Mills not only writes an action thriller that always delivers but is able to also intertwine current affairs and even extrapolate on the current affairs to introduce nightmare scenarios that are believable as well as terrifying. I am looking forward to Mitch’s next adventure.I highly recommend this political thriller and all the books in the Mitch Rapp series!

ARC Book Review – Vince Flynn Oath of Loyalty – Kyle MillsRelease Date: September 13, 2022I’m in ‘awe’ to how well author Kyle Mills has continued to keep the Vince Flynn Mitch Rapp series the matron of the action thriller genre after its creator Vince Flynn’s passing. “Oath of Loyalty,” Book 21 in the series but Mills’ eight Mitch Rapp book – is quite possibly one of the best in the series and maybe one of the best in the thriller genre this year, 2022. With the story’s current President convinced that main character and CIA assassin, Mitch Rapp is a lethal threat to him, CIA Director and Rapp’s boss, Irene Kennedy is forced to construct a truce between the two men and the terms are modest - Rapp agrees to leave the country and stay on the grid and in plain sight for as long as the President is in the White House. In exchange, the President agrees not to go after Rapp. Subsequently, the feeble agreement doesn’t hold, and this is where this explosive new thriller takes off. When Vince Flynn passed away, his main character Mitch Rapp was at the top of his career. For Kyle Mills to come in – finished Book 14, “The Survivor” with Flynn - and then, not only meet the challenge of continuing the series, but exceed it is simply astonishing! In Oath of Loyalty, Mills takes Rapp to another level. The imaginative plot, the well-written storyline, the inclusion and addition of old and new characters, the vivid details in the location settings, the conscientious dialogue, the ideal sense of humor, the ample political subterfuge, and the continued outstanding character development of an iconic protagonist all tied in with the perfect dose of action, makes this book a ‘gem’ of the genre. An amazing “WoW” read! I am honored and grateful to be a Mitch Rapp Ambassador and for the pleasure of reading the Advance Reader’s Copy (ARC) of Vince Flynn’s Oath of Loyalty by Kyle Mills. #MitchRappIsBack #OathOfLoyalty

Oath of Loyalty - review *(no spoilers)I received an advanced copy of the novel for an honest review, so here it is....I LOVED IT! I had intentions of going to bed on time last night and I was about to place a bookmark, when two SUVs approached the gates and all hell broke loose. There wasn't a chance of me sleeping as my heart was pounding and pages were being turned as fast as I could read. Around midnight, I was halfway finished and I was about to call it again... but each chapter ending compelled me to "just check out what's going to happen next". In short, I read the entire novel in one sitting and my heavy eyes and extra coffee today were worth it.Mitch Rapp does what he does best... react to threats against his friends, family and country. When the current administration leaks the information of Rapp's partner, Claudia Gould, to her enemies in hopes of flushing out, or eliminating Mitch, he retaliates in a manner we had yet to witness. Wow!! What a scene. That memory will stay with me for a very long time, the entire novel in fact!Although I have said this before, I will state it as many times as needed. Thank you, to Kyle Mills for continuing the Mitch Rapp legend. Vince Flynn was a trend setter and made me devour the genre. His novels were instrumental in motivating me to become and author and the continued character development of Rapp and the stories are inspiring. Kyle, I hope you have more novels and ideas left for the series!!

Vince Flynn’s “Mitch Rapp” series was built on a beautiful foundation of political and paramilitary brilliance. This series gained massive amounts of popularity on this tried and true scaffolding. When Kyle Mills took over this series, he continued this legacy, and he has also taken this series to new heights as well. Oath of Loyalty is Mills’s eighth addition to this series under his name, and oh what a beauty it is with wild political intrigue, ample subterfuge, and the perfect dose of action. The story starts directly after the shocking end of the last novel. This is Rapp like we have never seen him before. Through the entire life of this series, Rapp has always put himself in harms way to defend the country he loves. Now with shifting political lines, and people at each others throats over the smallest things, the country he loves now turns on him. The President, Anthony Cook, sees Rapp as a threat, and Rapp is forced to leave the country. Irene Kennedy is able to set up a shaky truce between the two men: Rapp and his men stay in plain sight, and Cook will leave them alone. However, as Cook’s security-advisor convinces him that Rapp posses a significant threat, and will not honor their agreement, a hit is put on Rapp’s partner, Claudia, with the hope that it will keep Rapp on the defensive, and ultimately keep his sights off of Cook. Claudia has an illustrious past with some dangerous people who want to do her harm. As her whereabouts are leaked, Rapp is forced to track down the more nefarious people from her past to put them down before they get to her. However, a new league of assassin has entered the playing field, an entity called Legion. Legion has created a highly successful business model set on double-blind secrecy: neither the client nor the killer know of the others identity, which has the nasty side effect of not having a means to call them off once the contract is started. When Rapp discovered that Legion is on to Claudia, the race is on for Rapp to figure out how to stop them. As Rapp is cut off from the CIA, and his men are spread all over the globe, Will Rapp have the resources to stop them? Oath of Loyalty was so good! We have seen Rapp cut off before in various ways, but he always knew he had the backing of his country in the process. In this latest installment, Rapp is in the fight of his life against the country he has given everything for. It is beyond terrifying to read this because it is so similar to what is happening now across our country. Oath of Loyalty is a can’t miss read by Kyle Mills which has only taken this series to new heights.

** spoiler alert ** I was thankful enough to receive an ARC and become once again a Mitch Rapp Ambassador. With that, let me tell you this book is a good. A solid 3.8 out of 5. Going to beak down the good and bad belowThe good:Mitch, Bebe, and Sadie faking the hospital Rush to trick Legion. Thought it was very clever and cool to readThe dropping of the old russian bomb on the Guatemalan head was pretty cool. The attack on the inside of Claudia house early on in the bookMas running into the woods with a rifle during the President speech just to turn around a go home was hilarious. Mitch playing mind games was pretty fun to read The conflict between Darren, Anthony, and Catherine was really well written. You could feel the tension between Darren and Cathrine on the pagesThe bad:This book really had little to no action, you have the attack on the house, the streets of Guatemala car scene, and the dropping of the bomb in Guatemala. All which were in the first half of the book. This definitely turned Into more of the spy thriller than action thriller but I would have loved to see a little more action set pieces with Mitch and the boys. Felt like the entire time spent in Guatemala was a waste. Like we only went there so we can see Scott and Mitch drop a bomb on the Cartel leaders head. Then right after you get a paragraph talking about how hard it was to escape the country afterwards. Would have been cool to see them go through some hoops rather than a quick paragraph talking about it.Legion, the big bad Assassin group were kinda a dud for me. The word of mouth aura was there just by the name but it didn't land on the paper. Louie Gould for example had a whole scene in the beginning that set him up. You could see him work on a mission and you knew he was a threat. Legion you got a little back story and then some rumors of hits then did. Didn't land the same for me. Overall this was a good book but probably not my favorite Mitch Rapp novel. This is supposed to be book 2 of a 3 book story ARC and I have no idea where it's going to go. The President resigning at the end was actually pretty shocker so who knows what is going to happen next.

No Spoilers. Oath of Loyalty delivered more than I would have imagined from the title. With the storyline, plot, new characters, and the even more personal threat to Mitch Rapp (but then is there never one) and those around him, this book truly exploded for me. What a great read! I really loved this one!Well done Kyle Mills!Oath of Loyalty gave us some old villains along with a new villain - Legion - that really made Mitch and his team work to make sure that Mitch (or Claudia) weren't the ones who ended up dead. Along with the new challenge, in an ever-changing world of technology, communications, and surveillance, you have to be really good and creative -thanks Kyle - to stay secure. Oath of Loyalty provides a page-turning and dynamic story. The locations and descriptions are so vivid you feel like you are right there with the characters, in their very exotic settings, or wish you were. It’s a perfect blend of places we know or places we wish we could visit – if they even exist in the real world.Kyle Mills has become a master at crafting the perfect Mitch Rapp novels and this one is my favorite by far. Preorder your book today! It comes out on 09/13/2022(I should note that this book was gifted to me by the publisher – but I would have bought it in any case, because Vince Flynn/Mitch Rapp was my first love in spy thrillers. I cut my teeth on these books and that’s why I fell in love with this genre.)

Kyle Mills keeps upping the stakes with each Mitch Rapp novel he puts out and Oath of Loyalty is no different. The book picks up with the ending of the previous book, Enemy at The Gates retold from Mitch Rapp’s perspective. I thought this was brilliant and very well done. It shed a different light on the ending of Enemy at The Gates and was a great way to start off.The book quickly moves into its main theme, Mitch Rapp versus Anthony Cook, the current president of the United States. This is a great premise and it provided a new challenge for Mitch to solve. Mr. Mills did a great job dialing up the action throughout the book and keep the tension ratchet up even when Mitch wasn’t battling for his life. Anthony Cook and his wife, Catherine, make for a great enemy for Mitch Rapp. I really enjoyed their character development, and the scary thing is their plotting and scheming seemed something that could happen in today’s world. While I really enjoyed the whole book the cherry on top was the ending. As it came to the end, I was wondering how Mr. Mills was going to tie up the book without it being a let down. He didn’t disappoint and I raced through the last few chapters because it was so riveting. This was a great book overall and well deserving of five stars. Thank you to Emily Beslet Books, VinceFlynn.com, Kyle Mills, Atria Books, and Simon and Schifgler for an advance copy for an honest review.

I received an ARC of Oath of Loyalty. As a long time reader of the Mitch Rapp series I have to put this story high on the list of books. Most reminiscent of Vince Flynn writing.The story line is superb: How can a patriot go against his president, How can the president go against his best patriot. It’s easy and scary to relate this book to modern day politic, but I think Kyle Mills did an excellent job of not trying to relate to a specific President. As the 21st Mitch Rapp book we know him well, this book solidifies the parts of Rapp as a elite operator, a “loyal” friend, and a compassionate man. There are some Wow moments, but thankfully one that I thought was going to happen but am thankful it didn’t. Let’s talk after you read the book!

The last two chapters of Enemy at the Gates were shockingly repeated in the prelude to Oath of Loyalty. Note to Mike Nash: What happened to Semper fidelis? And, what WILL happen to Mitch? He's had the bad guys (and women) doing their evil best to eliminate, permanently, Mitch, but this time multiple international killers are contacted to see which one would like the pleasure, and financial reward, of being a hero to the diabolical side? Mitch, and especially Scott Coleman, but others from the past are mentioned (Joe Maslick, Bruno McGraw and Charlie Wicker), to see about countering the assassins. However, there's a new player! Legion! Is it an individual? Multiple players? Mitch is in danger, or is it Claudia, but where to even begin counter measures? Once again, Kyle provides a page-turner you won't put down until Mitch and Legion go head-to-head.

This is an improvement over the last few of Mills' Rapp books but it almost feels like I'm grading on a curve. This was a perfectly enjoyable thriller that held my interest, but it just doesn't feel like a Mitch Rapp book to me. There are very few action scenes and Mills continues to make Rapp pretty milquetoast. It feels like in trying to make a mass appeal thriller the series has been sanitized of what made it special. It sounds like I didn't like the book which isn't the case. I actually enjoyed the plot and how it played out quite a bit even if it was rather implausible. I think just the charm of the original series has been long lost, and every year we'll get a middling thriller that is worth couple of days of entertainment but nothing more.

Mitch Rapp is ready to take it easy and Irene Kennedy meets with President Anthony Cook, the First Lady, and his top advisors to negotiate a truce; however, Cook is convinced that Rapp intends to kill him. His paranoia is fanned by his closest advisors, especially Irene's successor as head of the CIA, who are changing security protocols and systematically purging all of Rapp's comrades from the intelligence community. Then, a plan is executed to make Rapp's wife, Claudia, a target for her former enemies to distract Rapp into protecting her and seeking vengeance against others. Their idyllic home in South Africa is ravaged, and Mitch goes after a Central America drug lord with military weapons. When a second adversary hires a team called Legion that never misses and never stops, Mitch and Irene recruit a double for Claudia to see if Legion can be stopped. Non-stop action.
