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.

Now one of my favorite
I look for books read by George. He is no doubt the very best reader out there.
The only man willing to do what it takes to stop them was Mitch Rap
It was a good albeit less than thorough introduction to Mitch Rapp.
Guidall is one of the best out there.
It was enough to make me want more.
This was more of an exhibition of what Mitch Rapp does, as appose to who the character is. It's a great peek at a character you'd like to read more about. And you should, it's worth it.
This was one of my favorites in the series thus far. It could be because i had taken a 2 month break in listening to the series, not sure, but I Loved the story line, of course loved the narrator. All around great book. Very captivating. Highly Recommend.
Definitely recommend. This is Flynn at his best. A delight to see common sense and dedication triumph over politics and petty aspirations.
Finished it in a few days. Delayed sleep until 2:30am to get the end of the story.
Well, he is simply the best. period. It is simply not Mitch Rapp when told by someone else, however good he is.
It was nice to see Rapp getting upset with the President.
Would have been nice to invite Canada's Prime Minister for Memorial Day.
I'm working my way through the Mitch Rapp series on Audible. I take a break between books to catch my breath. After a while, it's like pulling for an old friend who can't resist getting into trouble.
This book pulls all the parts together with amazing precision and excitement.
I have read Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp novels in order starting with American Assassin and am now into Memorial Day. I like all these books - the plot and the narration and George Guidall's performance and the characters, except for Anna Reilly. Every time she appears in the story she is whiny and seems to only want her own way without respect for her husband Mitch Rapp and his job. She isn't a good match for him. In my opinion, she emasculates Mitch by getting mad with him when he can't always meet her schedule and when he worries about making her mad if he has to go into the field or stay late to handle a crisis. I think Irene Kennedy is a better match for him. He needs a strong woman who respects his work! I have been thinking this for the last two-three books and just have to get it off my mind.
Just love listing to audiobooks. Some of my favorite authors are Vince Flynn and Brad Thor
Fast past and never let's you go
Mitch Rapp the best character ever
Everything. Love all of the books that George Guidall's books!!
Just the hole book
Possible, scary, exciting.
When they are torn with what to do with the second bomb.
Nothing extreme, it's just scary to think that this scenerio is possible. With a world full of terrierists bent on our destruction at all costs and politicians worried about themselves, I'm glad we have some real Mitch Raps out there watching guard.
Like the narrator much better than some of the earlier books. If you like Flynn and Rapp you won't be disappointed. The one drawback was they amount of time transitioning from one chapter of the book to the next. Probably 20 minutes in dead space between chapters in all. I kept checking my ipod to make sure I hadn't turned it off between chapters.
