CIA operative Mitch Rapp follows a trail of contract killers leading directly to the heart of our nation's capital in New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn's eighth explosive thriller. When presidential candidate Josh Alexander's motorcade is ambushed by a group of terrorists, the nation is thrown into turmoil. While the FBI and the rest of the government begin scouring the world for jihadists, CIA director Irene Kennedy and Special Agent Skip McMahon are presented with classified information pointing to some of the most powerful players in Washington. Enter Mitch Rapp, the one man reckless enough to follow the evidence to its explosive conclusion through the shadowy world of contract killers, around the globe, and eventually back to Washington.
In this harrowing political thriller by best-selling author Vince Flynn, it's just seven days before Memorial Day. A spike in CIA intelligence has pointed to a major terrorist attack on the US. Now it's up to Rapp to pull out all the stops.
He immediately leaves for Afghanistan, where he leads a special forces unit on a daring commando raid into a remote Pakistani village. Their target: an al-Qaeda stronghold where they discover plans for a catastrophic nuclear attack on Washington, DC. 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.
An action-packed and all-too-realistic vision of nations navigating the minefield of international intrigue, 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 it, 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 demands retribution, threatening the entire region in war. With the clock ticking, Rapp is given twenty-four hours, no questions asked, to do whatever it takes to stop Mukhtar, and avert an unthinkable catastrophe.
