When his girlfriend and many other classmates die in the Pan Am terrorist attack, however, Mitch's life changes forever. Approached by the CIA, he is motivated to accept their offer by patriotism, curiosity--and a potent desire for revenge.
Mitch Rapp broods over the deaths of his girlfriend and other classmates on Pan Am Flight 103, until he is recruited by the CIA and receives his first assignment--to kill the arms dealer who sold the bomb that killed his friends.
