Publisher's Summary

An action-packed and all-too-realistic vision of nations navigating the minefield of international intrigue, Protect and Defend is Vince Flynn's most explosive political thriller yet. The action begins in the heart of Iran, where billions of dollars are being spent on the development of a nuclear program. No longer willing to wait for the international community to stop its neighboring enemy, Israel launches a creative and daring operation that leaves a radioactive tomb in the middle of Iran's second largest city. An outraged Iranian government publicly blames both Israel and the United States and demands retribution.

Enter Mitch Rapp, America's top counterterrorism operative. Rapp convinces President Josh Alexander to sign off on a risky operation that will push Iran to the brink of revolution. But when Iran recruits Hezbollah master terrorist Imad Mukhtar, and a CIA effort goes disastrously wrong, Rapp and Mukhtar are set on a collision course that threatens to engulf the entire region in war. With the clock ticking, Rapp is given 24 hours, no questions asked, to do whatever it takes to stop Mukhtar, and avert an unthinkable catastrophe.

What the Critics Say

"Flynn didn't invent the post-9/11 thriller, but he might as well have....[He] is the best pure adrenaline-charged action writer out there today." (Providence Journal)

    "Same Vince Flynn"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    No


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Protect and Defend?

    Rapp's love affairs that never seem to materialize fully to family status because of his job


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    A new narrator , very mechanical. Not a good actor. It was difficult to distinguish between characters.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator can make or break the story, Shultz was struggling and didn't quite make it.

    "This should be made into a movie"

    This book was almost impossible to put down. A great book combining the events of today into a believable scenario of intrigue and mystery. This is one that would make a great movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    "Full On Rapp"

    Vince Flynn is the master of the Post 9/11 spy thriller, if you like the sound of this and are new to the Mitch Rapp Character then please trust me and start with book one you will not be disapointed. save this superb example of the twist and turns of international black opps and back channels for when you have cut your teeth on Raps early days and can fully appreciate why hes so driven. you wont have long to wait as you will want to listen at every opportunity.
