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.

    "Memorial Day is true to life fiction"

    This book is interesting & unfortunately very relevant to today's terrorist situations. Think every Dove type person should hear this story to get better idea about what it takes to fight terrorism!

    "Well done. Great story."

    My only nitpick with the book is the narrators pronunciation of Anna Reilly's name. In what part of the English speaking world is the name Reilly pronounced "Ree-elly"?!?! It's pronounced "Ri-lee"

    "Favorite Author"

    Vince Flynn did not disappoint once again. But I cried when I tried to find some info on him only to discover he died in 2013. I am traumatized no more books from this literary marvel.
    There are only 5 more books by him I have not yet read. I'm almost afraid to read only to be aware the end is near. As to the book itself it is all Mitch Rapp and Vince saving our way of life once again. I'll never know how Vince continued to make the same characters and basic underpinning of the plot line fresh and alive. The book moves at a fast yet easy to follow pace. Even his villains continue to be horrible yet sympathetic characters. Mr. Flynn is an incredible talent. Woe is me.

    "Awesome Story."

    I can't say enough about this exciting story. First, George Guidal is the best when it comes to narration. I believe he could make a marginal story great just by his skills as a narrator. The story was intense, the pace was perfect and the (new) characters were introduced and developed just enough to identify them throughout the story with getting confused. I really enjoyed the consistency of the main characters. Flynn/Guidal makes them familiar without being predictable. The story truly justifies Mitch Rapp's passion and the conviction of the antagonists. I loved the story and would highly recommend it to Flynn fans old and new.

    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.
