The back-drop for RED WAR is a tale of what happens when a Russian dictator finds himself with a terminal illness and the impact it might have on both Russia and the rest of the world, most especially the NATO alliance. Kyle Mills continues to do a credible job of writing for Vince Flynn, and I like that his back-drop for this story raises issues relevant to the times we live in. Mitch Rapp, et al are part of an exciting and complicated plot to address the problems that arise. Another wild and woolly ride across continents and countries. I just hope Mills isn't prescient in his imaginary plot. Enjoy the read.
