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.
Ruthless CIA operative Mitch Rapp returns in this sixth political thriller by bestselling author Vince Flynn. Rapp gets wind of a planned terrorist attack in the United States, and leads a strike force against an Al Qaeda outpost in Pakistan. At first, it seems as if he has successfully prevented the nuclear devastation of Washington, D. C., which was set to occur on Memorial Day. But then Rapp receives evidence suggesting that the danger is not yet over, and Memorial Day is only days away....
