CIA superagent Mitch Rapp battles global terrorism in a
high-octane follow-up to The New York Times bestselling
Separation of Power -- another chillingly authentic
adventure from the master of the political thriller.
Mitch Rapp's cover has been blown. After leading a team of
commandos deep into Iraq to prevent Saddam Hussein from
joining the nuclear arms race, he was publicly hailed by
the president as the single most important person in the
fight against terrorism. But after years of working
covertly behind the scenes, Rapp now lives in the glare of
the public spotlight, lauded by the nation and an easy
target for virtually every terrorist from Jakarta to
As special advisor on counterterrorism to CIA director Dr.
Irene Kennedy, Rapp is ready to fight the war on terrorism
from CIA headquarters rather than the front line. That is,
until a platoon of Navy SEALs, sent to the Philippines to
save an American family kidnapped by radical Islamic
terrorists, is caught in a deadly ambush. The mission had
been top secret -- so who told the enemy? All evidence
points to the State Department and the Philippine embassy.
But a greater threat still lurks. An unknown assassin
working closely with the highest powers in the Middle East
is bent on igniting war. Now, with the world watching his
every move, will Rapp be able to overcome this anonymous
foe and once again keep the flames of war from raging?
