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.

    "good thriller"

    Well done. A preview of what is inevitable in the future. It poses the political views of the left and right.

    "Standard Thriller Fare"

    I liked the plot a lot, but I keep waiting for someone to write a thriller that DOESN'T include Muslim terrorists mumbling Allah Hu Akbar and being given no deeper insight into why any individual would be hell bent to blow up lots of people. I know it suits American tastes to simplify these villains, but I guess I keep hoping against hope that someone will write one with just a little more depth.

    I like the Rabb character - I don't even mind that he tortures people with impunity - but again, this perpetuation of the ticking time bomb scenario is getting old. Wouldn't it be nice to read about a character who DID decide torture was necessary but had even a moment of doubt about how the decision to do so has lasting ramifications for a civil society who indulges it it?

    Meh, perhaps I'm expecting to much of a thriller. This one is no better or worse than those very similar to it.
