In Protect and Defend, the action begins in the
heart of Iran, where billions of dollars are being spent on
the development of a nuclear program. No longer willing to
wait for the international community to stop its
neighboring enemy, Israel launches one of the most creative
and daring espionage operations ever conceived. The attack
leaves a radioactive tomb and environmental disaster in the
middle of Iran's second largest city. An outraged Iranian
government publicly blames both Israel and the United
States for the attack and demands retribution. Privately,
Iran's bombastic president wants much more. He wants
America and Israel to pay for their aggression with blood.
Enter Mitch Rapp, America's top counterterrorism operative.
Used to employing deception, Rapp sees an opportunity where
others see only Iranian reprisals that could leave
thousands of Americans dead. Rapp convinces President Josh
Alexander to sign off on a risky operation that will
further embarrass the Iranian government and push their
country to the brink of revolution. As part of the plan,
CIA director Irene Kennedy is dispatched to the region for
a clandestine meeting with AzadAshani, her Iranian
But Rapp isn't the only one hatching plans. Iran's
President Amatullah has recruited Hezbollah master
terrorist Imad Mukhtar to do his dirty work. For decades
Mukhtar has acted as a surrogate for Iran, blazing a trail
of death and destruction across the Middle East and beyond.
When Kennedy's meeting with Ashani goes disastrously wrong,
Rapp and Mukhtar are set on a collision course that
threatens to engulf the entire region in war. With the
clock ticking, Rapp is given twenty-four hours, no
questions asked, to do whatever it takes to stop Mukhtar,
and avert an unthinkable catastrophe.
