21/7 - This was crap!! Will write more later24/7 - The plot - a rebel FBI agent is hunting a mass murderer who has poisoned America's illegal drug supply and guess what, the perpetrator is the agent's old partner who got kicked out of the bureau for beating up a suspect. Sounds exciting, right? No way to mess that up, right? Well, Mills managed to find a way.By focussing on the bad guy, John Hobart (not a spoiler as he is introduced to the reader as the poisoner from the beginning), for the firs [...]

This was a disappointing book. The idea was really promising and uh, well that's it. One StarPlot: One StarThe idea was brilliant and asked a great moral question - how would you feel if the drug supply was poisoned and all the drug addicts were killed? Personally, I can't help but think they have the right idea, even if killing that many people is abhorrent. Anyway, whatever, the reality of this plot was appalling. We spent too much time with the bad guy - and I mean way too much - learning all [...]

Synopsis: Special Agent Mark Beamon is a maverick. His open disdain for the FBI's rules - and Directors - has exiled him to a no-profile post in the boondocks. But when a shadowy right-wing group starts flooding America's emergency rooms with dead and dying, Beamon is summoned back to Washington. Teamed with an icily efficient female field agent, he is given the thankless task of stopping the slaughter-even though millions of Americans secretly approve of it. As the body count rises, Beamon real [...]

HEAVY HANDED AND DULLTake a maverick FBI agent mired in the bureaucracy of law enforcement, (with the predictable pinhead director), a self-righteous preacher, strangely competent bad guys and a pseudo-moralistic plot, and one might be forgiven in thinking that, "I've read all this before.". Well, you have in better books. One doesn't feel led through this story as much as shoved from behind with the author's hand on your collar with no subtlety or tension. After being sledge-hammered with char [...]

Where Do I start? I must say that the book started out well. And it continued to do well until Mark Beamon came into the picture. This is the first time I read a book where I found the hero to be the most boring character ever. Before I bought the book I read the summary on the book. That summary promised me a bad ass cop teaming up with a bad ass lady cop (yes, this was emphasized for some reason) to stop a ruthless, cunning criminal who used to be DEA from slaughtering the junkies in America.

The author recently took over the Mitch Rapp series, and I really enjoyed his writing in that one so I decided to check out his earlier novels starting with the first one. This was about an FBI agent, who is always bucking the system, who has been put in charge of an investigation to get to the bottom of a poisoned illegal narcotic supply. The premise was interesting and involved not just the FBI, but also a Colombian drug cartel, the mafia and a televangelist. Fast paced and easy to read, the o [...]

Het concept van dit boek is goed. Een televisie-dominee is het beu dat drugs zoveel slachtoffers eisen, en als hij dan ontdekt dat zijn zoontje cannabis gebruikt heeft, is voor hem de maat vol. Hij geeft John Hobart de opdracht om drugs te vergiftigen, en deze vindt een middel dat eerst twee weken na gebruik zijn dodelijk effect toont. De bedoeling is om de mensen bang te maken om nog drugs te gebruiken, maar het loopt uit de hand. Er vallen duizenden slachtoffers.Een moeilijke klus voor de FBI, [...]

`A fun beach read thriller with an ambiguous morality from the late 1990's. . A right wing group's solution to the drug problem is to poison the illicit drug supply and cause thousands of deaths. This c FBI's Mark Beamon is hot on their trail. Is it moral to kill thousands of drug addicts and is it worth it to discourage illicit drug use? Or is it morally indefensible? These are the moral questions this story asks. The reader can find he or she is both sides of the answer to the questions at the [...]

I think this is the first book I've ever read where I was rooting for the antagonist to triumph over the protagonist. Mark Beamon is a flat, one-dimensional, boring main character that seems to stumble into his successes more than anything else, while John Hobart has some depth not too much more than Beamon. It is a stereotypical good-guy versus villain novel, and I've read better. I'll probably still read more in this series though.

2.5 stars.What a great concept this book has And that's all it has going for it. Character development Terrible We are still meeting characters as the book is winding down, not a way to make the reader care what happens to said character. The chapters So disjointed Some start in one city from the pov of one character and stay that way. Some just from city to city or even to different countries, while also jumping character povs. Didn't make much sense. Plot timeline Horrendous Pages and pages we [...]

Another 3.5 book for me. I picked this book up at our library book sale. The premise was, indeed, unique. In order to halt the high rate of drup usage in the US, a scheme was begun, poisoning the drugs at their source. The ensuing results were the meat of the book. Although never compelling, the book was a good read.

Interesting plot. People die in large numbers, and much of our society is in support. I imagine that if people could offer their sentiment privately that the result would pretty much reflect the result in the book. Might reflect the divided social views that exist in 2017/2018.Writing is not to be confused with someone with excellent, complex writing skills, but the plot was realistic and kept me reading to the end.Kyle MIlls, the author, writes the Mitch Rapp novels under the Vince Flynn name c [...]

Great plot and convincingly written thrillerAfter 2 chapters it was easy to see why Kyle Mills was chosen to carry on Vince Flynn’s work. He has a wonderful way of describing in great detail what is happening so you can imagine the story unfolding without slowing down any of the momentum.A real “can’t put it down” read.

Interesting story, but felt kinda "TV Movie of the Week" to me. Character development seemed a little shallow, perhaps.

The premise is original and it's a page-turner that raises many moral conundrums. With the flood of illegal and (most importantly) deadly drugs being run throughout America, and you wanted to stop it, via extreme measures, would you? Well some 'well-intentioned' people did exactly that by poisoning supplies of heroin and cocaine, delivering death to users and hospital rooms are overrun with casualties. The early parts of the book describe in great detail how such a thing could happen. And the sc [...]

I'm tempted to go with 4. I was pretty glued to it but overall it's obviously his first outing. Not near as compelling as Silva, Connelly, Eisler, Coes, Taylor, Thor, Flynn or Child's first books. The evil plot takes 40% of the book to get unfolded and we follow it in painstaking detail with the antagonist the focus of the first half of the book. The writing is odd as well. He jumps all over the place and skips some of the payload of actions. A guys sneaks up to take out a character, it happens [...]

This is the first of the Kyle Mills 'Mark Beamon' books and was surprised how it started with the "bad guys" being involved with a church and then what the problem was that the church leader wanted enacted. Interesting to start your first book demonizing, in a sense, a church. I found the premise pretty far out and the first chapter lost credibility to me for the rest of the book. Because I hate to put a book aside that I start, I went ahead with the novel.Considering the the over long bulk of t [...]

An excellent, gripping, morally challenging novel.I am reviewing Rising Phoenix as an abridged audiobook and will make specific comments on that aspect of it at the end of this review.I have drudged and slogged my way through a number of books and audiobooks lately and this one was like a bolt of lightning - it came out of nowhere and really was a welcome surprise for me. I won't go into many of the plot details - however, this is a great bit of writing. The premise is thought-provoking, to say [...]

If you like great political thrillers with a punch, you'll love this explosive thriller debut from Kyle Mills. We're introduced to Mark Beamon, a FBI agent who's been bounced and reassigned to Houston. Through the eyes of John Hobart, an ex-DEA agent, and a criminal mastermind, we watch him plot his own evil plans of ending the war on drugs and making it into an epidemic across America. But they're both getting started to solve this problem their own ways. We watch how Hobart and Beamon dance ar [...]

Great first book by this author. The action is non-stop, and the story-line well-crafted. FBI Agent Mark Beamon is not your typical action-hero: trim, athletic, and equipped with all kinds of high-tech gadgets. He is, however, one darn good detective. Good enough, that you won't want to put this one down until you've finished. My one minor complaint with "Rising Phoenix" is the glaring mistakes with weaponry; rare here, as Beamon spends most of his time actually solving the crime, not shooting. [...]

This is the very first book written by Kyle Mills and since then he has written more than 20 books but this is the only one which I have read. This book deals with a very real problem which provides a logical answer but yes you know logic doesn't always work well in real life scenarios. This is what happens when a Right Wing Group starts murdering drug users. In comes Mark our hero and through muddy scenes we finally reach the end. This book had all FBI, Police, DEA et. al. and a cold cold kille [...]

I don't know why I haven't found this author before now but I am sure glad I have now. Wow. A rogue former DEA agent has a great idea for winning the war on drugs - poison the supply and scare everybody straight. He has a multi-millionaire religious evangelist as a backer and he's on his way. Thousands start dropping dead. This is a marvelously crafted plot, carried along by amazingly readable writing and really interesting characters.

I really enjoyed the concepts and ideas in this book. I'm not going to write a plot summary because other reviewers have already did that. But the concept that someone could poison cocaine and heroin at the production stage to get people to quit using is interesting. I really enjoyed the character development. I'm looking forward to reading Storming Heaven next to see what Mark Beamon gets himself into next.
