The Second Horseman book. Picked this up because Kyle Mills has been commissioned to continue the Mitch Rapp series by Vince Flynn's family. I wanted to see his style

The Second Horseman book. Brandon Vale is the best burglar in the business. I wanted to see his style. I think there were some gaps in his story line, places where you are left to guess how the story got from point A to point B. But the main character was very likable and the ending was cute. I am reserving how I feel about him continuing the Rapp series until I read the first book that he authored under that franchise.

My relationships with women have been screwed up my whole life, you know? Started with my mother, I think. Then I went into this kind of work and that made it even worse. Then I went into this kind of work and that made it even worse ould put up with me running all over the country at a moment's notice and waiting for the cops to kick in our door? I'll tell you: Not good ones. The driver's eyes were locked straight ahead and his face was frozen and pale enough to be almost corpselike

Kyle Mills is the New York Times bestselling author of 18 thrillers, including Red War, Fade, and The Ares Decision. In this book, he’s tasked with stopping a radical group that is poisoning the US narcotics supply in an effort to kill off drug users. The Utopia Experiment. Brandon Vale is a likeable criminal mastermind who is broken out of prison to help stop the sale of WMDs to a terrorist group. Think Oceans Eleven meets Mission Impossible.

From the author of the award-winning The Second Horseman comes an all-too-plausible eco-thriller, in which a new bacteria with a voracious appetite for oil threatens the worlds energy supply.

And that's the problem. If the book had stopped at about two novels' worth, it would have been a lot better.

Though an enjoyable read, to call this "Fade Book 2" is just a straight out misrepresentation. The Fade character was not in the book at all, in fact, none of the characters from Fade were in this book. Before I bought it, I saw that it had been released 3-4 years before Fade, and hoped it might be a prequal, but no such luck.

That being said, it was still a fun read, and I still enjoy Kyle Mills work, just not as much as his earlier work. For a bit more action, try Brad Thor's new book, Foreign Agent.

This story starts out interestingly enough as Brandon Vale, a career thief is being broken out of prison...by one of the guards...as he stumbles through the woods he expects to be shot and or captured, but it seems that someone has gone to a lot of trouble to arrange his escape.

As it turns out that person (Richard Scanlon)is the same one that put him in prison in the first place...and framed him to do it. Getting a little complicated? Think how Brandon must feel when he finds out.

It seems that there are some nuclear weapons on the black market, being sold by some Ukranian thugs. The price is 200 million. Scanlon with ties to the US intelligence community has been tasked to make the buy and get the nukes out of circulation. His first problem is that he needs 200 million dollars.

That's where Brandon comes in. After being convinced that his only alternative to saying "no" is to go back to prison, he agrees to engineer a heist of a truck transferring the proceeds from Las Vegas's casinos to a federal depository. However, his problems don't end there.

After pulling off the hijacking he is tapped to go to the Ukraine to make the purchase of the weapons as the person who was supposed to have done that has been killed.

I am not giving away anything to indicate that the person really running the show is the President's NSA Director. However, his plan for the nukes is not what everyone else thinks it is and I will leave the reader to find ouut what he is up to and how it all comes down.

While the thought that a person in that position would act in this manner is somewhat implausible, this is a very entertaining and tightly written thriller which should help those who purchase to pass these cool nights as we head into fall.

Like many authors today and like he did himself with his previous work, Fade, Mills uses the topics of terrorism, al Qaeda, and Middle East turmoil as the backdrop for the storyline of his latest work. Unlike Fade, however, which dealt directly with the subject, Mills' latest work actually only covers these topics in a more secondary fashion. With The Second Horseman, Mills presents the story of Brandon Vale, a career criminal who somewhat unexpectedly finds himself broken out of prison. Presented with an offer he cannot refuse, Vale must orchestrate the theft of $200 million from a Las Vegas casino in order to purchase 12 nuclear weapons (and keep them out of the hands of terroists). Vale proves to be an interesting, even likeable, character. A solid supporting cast of characters makes this a compelling read. All in all, The Second Horseman is not quite as good as Mills' previous work, Fade, which in my opinion was fantastic, but it is very close. This will be well worth your time.

Very enjoyable read. Never really knowing what was going to happen next I found it hard to put down. I really liked the main character of the book, the author made him seem like someone I would enjoy meeting. Overall great book, good story line and well developed characters

This book is a movie script. I could see a younger Brad Pitt in the lead role. Various Oscar nominees in brief, pointless scenes. Breathtaking stunts. And strangely, a mass of philosophical sputter about the state of the world and such.

When I bought this book I did not expect something remarkable. I simply bought it because I read the previous book and was looking for something similar, something to pour over my head before going to sleep. But I had not reached 50% when the durn thing started to keep me awake because of how...unenjoyable it is. Did I mention the complex layers of the various characters? No I guess I didn't...

Its hard to rate Kyles books as I love them all. All his stories are ones you just can't put down.
I have read all his books and can't wait for the next one.

A fantasy semi thriller and a little difficult to follow the story line.
I suppose it’s just me and I’m no critic. I don’t understand what became of Richard Scanlon.
Lots of twists and turns and you never know where things are going. Great story. Great characters. Looking for his next story.
