“Mills’s suspenseful, strikingly original sixth Mitch Rapp novel…is as riveting as anything penned by Mitch’s creator, Vince Flynn (1966–2013). Mills has really hit his stride with this franchise entry.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“One of the best thriller writers on the planet.” —The Real Book Spy

In the next thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling Mitch Rapp series, it’s a race against the clock when ISIS takes out the entire US power grid and throws the country into chaos.

When Mitch Rapp captures ISIS’s top technology expert, he reveals that he was on his way to meet a man who claims to have the ability to bring down America’s power grid. Rapp is determined to eliminate this shadowy figure, but the CIA’s trap fails.

The Agency is still trying to determine what went wrong when ISIS operatives help this cyber terrorist do what he said he could—plunge the country into darkness. With no concept of how this unprecedented act was accomplished, the task of getting the power back on could take months. Perhaps even years.

Rapp and his team embark on a desperate search for the only people who know how to repair the damage—the ones responsible. But his operating environment is like nothing he’s experienced before. Computers and communication networks are down, fuel can no longer be pumped from gas stations, water and sanitation systems are on the brink of collapse, and the supply of food is running out.

Can Rapp get the lights back on before America descends irretrievably into chaos?

This compulsive thriller proves once again that the Mitch Rapp series is “the best of the best when it comes to the world of special ops” (Booklist, starred review).


  • Definitely the worst Mitch Rapp book

    By danmatras
    The premise for this book was definitely interesting. However, the entire book did not seem believable at all. I wonder if the Mitch Rapp character is coming to the end of the line.I had a hard time finishing this book because it was so unbelievale. Normally I cannot put down a Mitch Rapp book this one was so difficult and unbelievable that I had a hard time finishing it. I hope the next one gets on track or Mitch Rapp character needs to retire.
  • UGH! What happened?

    By TonyJ_in_LA
    I’m a big fan of the Mitch Rapp series and Kyle Mills’ previous works, but something went wrong with this one. The plot and resolution were painfully simple and all of the characters were, at best, two dimensional. It just felt like a short story that needed to stay short or an early draft that needed significantly more time and depth. For whatever reason, someone decided it was “good enough” and declared victory far too soon. Just another casualty of 2020.
  • Yay! Marcus is back!

    By ooohhh boy!!!
    Been a fan of the series for ages, have not yet finished, but just had to write that I am thoroughly pleased about the return of Marcus! Love everything about the Rapp series.

    As always a riveting plot with great character interactions. Kyle has once again found a way to write a tail that is an homage to Vince. I look forward to the next one!
  • Pretty disappointing

    By JDH1223344
    I have been a Mitch Rapp fan from the beginning. I was a bit anxious when Kyle took over for Vince (RIP) but his books have been pretty so far. This one - not so much. This a terrible Mitch Rapp book and, really, not that good of an adventure book. I’d read it if there was nothing else but, honestly not his best work. Perhaps Kyle is trying to find his own way with Mitch, and, if true, he needs to redirect. This is not the Mitch Rapp I know and love. The premise was reasonable (attack on the power grid) but the plot and writing were not good. The action scenes did not flow like the previous books and there was not enough Mitch Rapp in them. The new characters seemed very one-dimensional and even the old ones not much more than that. Certainly not the richness we got from Vince. This book honestly felt like a transition to something else. Perhaps there were no more of Vince’s ideas left; this one was just off. I feel bad for Kyle; Vince left huge shoes to fill and I’m sure he did his best but take us back outside the USA for the next one.
  • Terribly written

    By Ctoandasan
    You know that feeling that you are so glad to reach the ending and get away from the torture. Too many irrelevant musings and preachy inner thoughts of characters. Meandering. Plot is too si ple and assumes a lot of things.
