Kyle Mills’s Red War, continuing Vince Flynn’s Mitch Rapp series, took to the top of the Apple Books bestseller list this week, knocking Lethal White by Robert Galbraith (a.k.a. J.K. Rowling) clean out of the top five. (It’s at #9.) Michael Lewis’s latest, The Fifth Risk makes the top ten, as does Tucker Carlson’s Ship of Fools—each decrying incompetence and elitism in American politics in its own way.
