Fighting terrorism on foreign ground, CIA superagent Mitch Rapp does whatever it takes to protect American freedom.
CIA intelligence has pointed to a major terrorist attack on the United States, just as the nation's capital prepares for a grand Memorial Day tribute to the veterans of World War II. Racing to Afghanistan, Mitch Rapp leads a commando raid on an al Qaeda stronghold in a remote border village - and defuses plans for a nuclear strike on Washington.
The crisis averted, the special ops work is done. But Rapp knows, in the face of a new kind of enemy, nothing is as it seems - and it's up to him alone to avert a disaster of unimaginable proportions.

"Sizzles with inside information, military muscle, and CIA secrets." -- Dan Brown
"Flynn has done his homework on military and security matters, and his accounts of combat operations, surveillance at the Charleston harbor, the complexities of assembling nuclear devices, the Secret Service's protection of the president and like are detailed and persuasive." -- Washington Post
"Move over, Jack Ryan! Mitch Rapp's more macho.... Read a dozen pages of this book and you'll be hooked. Flynn's got a sure touch for the modern-day cliffhanger." -- Portland Oregonian
