IF SHE'S LOOKING FOR YOU, YOU'RE ALREADY IN TROUBLE.
Every year, tens of thousands of young girls go missing around the world. Some go voluntarily, but others are taken against their will and forced into a life worse than death.
When a teenager vanishes and the authorities have given up, her mother asks Allie Krycek for help. For Allie, it’s not just another bad guy to take down. This one hits too close to home. Maybe a little too close.
Years ago, Allie’s own little sister vanished, and she couldn’t do anything to stop it. This time, things are different. This time, things will be different.
The only things stopping Allie are two seasoned professionals, a hidden criminal organization, and a whole lot of empty miles, with danger around every turn. All she has to do is get to the end of the line…alive.

The Survivor by Kyle Mills & Vince Flynn | A 15-Minute Summary & Analysis
Now entering middle age, CIA agent/assassin Mitch Rapp must deal with consequences of his past actions as well as those of Joseph Rickman, a brilliant former CIA agent. Rickman, already dead at the novel’s start, put in peril the lives of numerous agents by threatening the release of classified intelligence.
Rapp successful assassination of Rickman creates other complications. Rickman not only hid his cache of intelligence data on CIA assets and agents, he also still seems to control it. Rapp embarks on a twisted trail to prevent the deaths of agents and assets around the world. Supported by a team of experienced agents, he finds guidance in two of his oldest friends, Irene Kennedy, head of the CIA, and Stan Hurley, his mentor and former handler.
Unbeknownst to them, the CIA is up against Ahmed Taj, a seemingly mild-mannered bureaucrat in charge of the country’s intelligence service. His scheme uses the Rickman debacle as a tool in his quest to take over Pakistan. Taj despises western morals and views Pakistan’s present problems as a sign it is reverting to its proper state. Nonetheless, he understands and exploits U.S. funds paid to Pakistan and Afghanistan, and is a true mastermind at manipulating things in his favor.
As asset information is leaked at regular intervals through emails, Rapp searches for its source and for the encryption key. An operation to kidnap and interrogate a Swiss national known for shady banking ties produces little, and Rapp finds himself racing against other operatives to chase down the source.
The story culminates at a state dinner in Islamabad attended by American dignitaries, as well as the Pakistan’s President Churani and Ahmed Taj. What occurs brings about a huge shift of power and reveals the true intentions of several characters.
