Description

Fearless counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp is called upon to fight against the world's most deadly terrorists in this harrowing political thriller by New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn.
It's just seven days before Memorial Day, and the nation's capital is buzzing with last-minute preparations for the unveiling of the magnificent new memorial honoring the men and women who fought in World War II. Despite the hopeful energy of the city, Mitch Rapp senses trouble. A spike in CIA intelligence has pointed to a major terrorist attack on the United States. Now it's up to Rapp to pull out all the stops.
Rapp immediately leaves for Afghanistan, where he leads a special forces unit on a daring commando raid across the border into a remote Pakistani village. Their target: an al Qaeda stronghold. Within a subterranean room, Rapp and his team discover a treasure trove of maps, computers, files, and bills of lading for multiple freighters heading to U.S. ports -- all pointing to plans for a catastrophic nuclear attack on Washington, DC.
Information is quickly relayed back to CIA headquarters, and a nuclear emergency support team scrambles to the scene. In a few hours, the freighters have been located and disarmed and the danger has been averted. Or has it?
Despite all the backslapping and congratulations, Mitch Rapp can't shake the feeling that the operation seemed just a bit too easy. Rapp follows his instincts on a quest to unearth the whole truth. What he finds is truly terrifying, and with Memorial Day closing fast, Rapp must find a way to prevent a disaster of unimaginable proportions.
Packed with the heartstopping action and political intrigue that Vince Flynn's fans love, here is a stylish thriller exalting America's past battles for freedom as well as its continued fight for peace.

    You would think someone else wrote this book. In the past Vince Flynn’s books have been character and plot driven. This latest book is short on character development and long on a fascination with explosives. He spends pages describing the terrorists’ devices for destroying Washington, D.C. and very little on the characters themselves.

    I haven't read a bad Vince Flynn book yet, and this might be his best work. For those that haven't read Flynn, his books are a bit of a cross between the show 24 and Tom Clancy novels. In other words, they have the heart-stopping excitement of 24 with the intelligence and detail of Clancy novels (although Flynn is much better in this regard since Clancy often goes overboard in the military lingo so much so that they can be hard to follow). Once you read one Flynn novel, you will want to read more!
