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.

I love this series and am so sad that Vince Flynn is longer with us to write more.
Another Mitch Rapp thriller. I do hope we have a number of these dedicated guys in our military. This is so close to present day happenings. Vince knew... Wow.
Great story. I'd read the book before, and wanted to listen while I was traveling. The narrator, REALLY put me off. He gasped his breaths, which drives me crazy, and his "female voice" renditions were ridiculously bad. I listened to the whole thing, though. Like I said, great story.
First, you must read or listen to these books in order, period.
Second - we should all make one overwhelming wish that Mitch really exists.
Third - the narration is outstanding.
Fourth - reread 1-3!
I enjoy listening to the Mitch Rapp series. Great character. Good book. Go get'm Mitch.
"Well paced book l. Rapp at his best."
Fast moving drama. Worryingly believable, a bit of choice language but used in context did not spoil the book. If you are a Rapp fan then you will not be disappointed
Really good listen.. built the story well and climaxed with the right amount of intensity.
"An outstanding novel that is relevant to today."
I found this story to be one that everyone should read and realise what our world is like. The book will keep you captivated. A great read
