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.

    "Ditto on the High Fives!"

    One of Vince Flynn's best novels, read by one of my most favorite Audible narrators, George Guidall!

    Worth every penny, worth every minute. I now have another favorite in my Audible library. Even though I've read all of Vince Flynn's books in hardback, I have every intention of buying Audible's, unabridged Consent to Kill and Act of Treason - both of which are also narrated by George Guidall! And yes! If Audible ever offers American Assassin, narrated by Guidall, I'll buy it immediately.

    Highly recommended!

    "Flynn's best Mitch Rapp Book"

    This has been my favorite Rapp book to date. Mitch Rapp kicks a-- from beginning to end. When he is not taking out the bad guys, he is putting the spineless politicians in their place. I love Mitch Rapp and if Flynn ever takes him out, I am done. These books give me the escape I need from the political divide that exist in our country today. Hats off to Mr Guidall as he does a great job with the narration.

    "Excellent Book"

    I have avoided this book in the past because the only version available on Audible was the abridged version. Abridged version are only for those who have an attention span of a third grader. I will never understand how you can take a great 14 or 15 hour book and hack it to less than half it's original length. Murder mysteries are great because of their detail. I love the Mitch Rapp books and this one is very good also. I loved it. George Guidall "is" Mitch Rapp. He's read all of them to us. This is a scary book and has an element of "could happen" which makes it even better. I have loved every Mitch Rapp book that Vince Flynn turns out. Just wish he would stop doing the abridged stuff. Abridged books are worthless. I like the detail. That's what makes a book exceptional for me. I am glad I waited until Flynn's publisher finally got a clue and put the unabridged version on Audible. I will definitely read the whole series again sometime. There is another one out there that is also only in the abridged form (I forget the name of it). I will NOT buy that book until we get the whole thing on Audible.
    I would definitely recommend this book along with all of his other in the unabridged version.

    "Could not stop listening."

    This is another excellent and well written book by Vince Flynn. The pace is blistering. I could not stop listening until the book was done. I just slipped into the zone and enjoyed every moment. Great story line and I am afraid all too real. Highly recommended if you like the, Terrorists are coming to get us plots. This book does not disappoint. George Guidall is always excellent.

    "One of His Best"

    Almost as good as American Assassin, I still think AA was his best but Memorial Day is close behind it. I really enjoyed this one.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Great espionage thriller by the genre master!"

    Memorial Day is Book 7 in the Mitch Rapp series and was the 5th book released. Picking a best or favorite Vince Flynn novel is impossible for me, but Memorial Day likely has the longest period of sustained intense suspense as a nuclear bomb arrives at the heart of Washington DC with the countdown to detonation becoming very near and stopping the clock being impossible.

    I'm listening to the entire Mitch Rapp series for the third time. I seldom listen to any book twice.

    Guidall's narration is...perfect!

    "Think It Over"

    He had me right up to the end. Very fast paced. I am not sure about some of it being even close to plausible,but what the heck it's fiction. Guidall fantastic as always. Glad to see some of the other books coming out in the unabridged form and Mr G doing the naration

    "It's about time!!"

    I have refused to listen to any of the abridged books by Vince Flynn. I kept hoping they would come back and do unabridged versions of the older books and here we are! As always, I enjoyed the book immensely and Vince Flynn is becoming one of my favorite writers. He's not Hemingway or Faulkner, but his stuff is great entertainment and the George Guidall (once again) brings it to life. The only complaint I can offer is that I wish they did the unabridged versions from the beginning of the series forward not in reverse. I would much rather make my way through the series in the order intended. But, I'll take what I can get--as long as it's unabridged.

    "Explosive Mitch Rapp Thriller!"

    4.5 stars for a thoroughly enjoyable listen. It's really hard to execute a plot of this scale in a single book. The higher the stakes, the more difficult it is to pull off believably, and the threat of nuclear annihilation is about as high as it gets. Flynn goes a good job, and this is probably the best book of the series up to this point. Mitch Rapp is badder and better than ever, but unfortunately we don't get to see much at all of his wife Anna in this book. Also Mitch has continued the same "I'm tired of all the BS, I'm gonna quit after this one and settle down" monologues that he has been having for the last four books. For better or worse though, he stops worrying about that after the next book, "Consent to Kill"...

    "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
