BOOK REVIEW: Red War (A Mitch Rapp Novel Book 15)

Red War’s thrust centers on the deteriorating health of the Russian President, as he wrestles and seeks alternative medical treatment for inoperable brain cancer. The Russian President, Maxim Krupin, is worried that his political opponents will seize on any perceived illness or weakness and move against him.
