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.

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
mitch doesn't play well with others great book great narrator
very well done
The story, narration and performance of this book was outstanding. I couldn't wait to get into the car to listen to the book on my way to and from work. Excellent!
This one is actually humorous as Mitch lays down the law to everyone in his path including the President.
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.
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.
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.
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".
I wish Mr Flynn were still with us.
