Publisher's Summary

It's just seven days before Memorial Day, and a spike in CIA intelligence has pointed to a major terrorist attack on the United States. Now it's up to counterterrorism operative Mitch 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. Rapp and his team soon discover 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?

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.

    "Best book so far"

    Narrator was awesome
    Surpassed my expectations
    Can't believe I haven't heard of this before 2015 I can feel it giving him free rein isn't going to work out the way he planned it

    Story
    "Scared the hell out of me! Wally C, Charleston SC"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes Vince Flynn is a master of the thrill ride. I recommend all of his books. He is one of those rare writers that just keeps getting better, even though he started at the top.


    What other book might you compare Memorial Day to and why?

    Tom Clancy's book,"The Sum Of All Fears". This book keeps you an the edge of your seat as life as we know it hangs in the balance.( We being U.S.) It is very believable and possible.That makes it very scary.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    George Guidall's performance takes you there. instead of thinking about the narrators performance you only enjoy the immersion into the story. He is one of, if not the best. This one is as good as it gets.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I just wish all of his books could be made into movies, as long as the movies remained true to the book. Unlike the abomination Hollywood did to"The Sum Of All Fears".


    Any additional comments?

    I wish Mr Flynn were still with us.
