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.
It's a gorgeous autumn day in Georgetown. The Democratic
candidates for president and vice president of the United
States are dutifully glad-handing voters and the media
outside a grand estate where a national security
conference has just been held, bringing together the
world's greatest minds to discuss the issues that are
threatening the country. It's American politicking at its
best. That's when all hell breaks loose.
When presidential candidate Josh Alexander's motorcade is
ambushed by a group of terrorists, the nation is thrown
into turmoil. Two weeks following the attack, Alexander is
carried to victory by a sympathy vote, but his assailants
have not been found. On the surface it appears to be the
work of al-Qaeda, despite the tremendous job that the U.S.
and her allies have done eliminating terrorist cells
within the heart of America. 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 so toxic that they
consider destroying it altogether, as it contains
intelligence pointing to some of the most powerful players
Enter Mitch Rapp, the one man reckless enough to follow
the evidence to its explosive conclusion. His journey
takes him through the shadowy world of contract killers,
into the darkest corners of the globe, and eventually back
to Washington, where the fragile pillars of power are
shaken to their core.
