#1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn returns
with yet another explosive thriller, introducing the young
Mitch Rapp, as he takes on his first assignment.
Before he was considered a CIA superagent, before he was
thought of as a terroristâ€™s worst nightmare, and before he
was both loathed and admired by the politicians on Capitol
Hill, Mitch Rapp was a gifted college athlete without a care
in the world . . . and then tragedy struck.
Two decades of cutthroat, partisan politics has left the CIA
and the country in an increasingly vulnerable position. Cold
War veteran and CIA Operations Director Thomas Stansfield
knows he must prepare his people for the next war. The rise
of Islamic terrorism is coming, and it needs to be met
abroad before it reaches Americaâ€™s shores. Stansfield
directs his protĂ‰gĂ‰e, Irene Kennedy, and his old Cold War
colleague, Stan Hurley, to form a new group of clandestine
operatives who will work outside the normal chain of
commandâ€”men who do not exist.
What type of man is willing to kill for his country without
putting on a uniform? Kennedy finds him in the wake of the
Pan Am Lockerbie terrorist attack. Two-hundred and seventy
souls perished that cold December night, and thousands of
family and friends were left searching for comfort. Mitch
Rapp was one of them, but he was not interested in comfort.
He wanted retribution.
Six months of intense training has prepared him to bring the
war to the enemyâ€™s doorstep, and he does so with brutal
efficiency. Rapp starts in Istanbul, where he assassinates
the Turkish arms dealer who sold the explosives used in the
Pan Am attack. Rapp then moves onto Hamburg with his team
and across Europe, leaving a trail of bodies. All roads lead
to Beirut, though, and what Rapp doesnâ€™t know is that the
enemy is aware of his existence and has prepared a trap. The
hunter is about to become the hunted, and Rapp will need
every ounce of skill and cunning if he is to survive the
war-ravaged city and its various terrorist factions.
As action-packed, fast-paced, and brutally realistic as it
gets, Flynnâ€™s latest page-turner shows readers how it all
began. Behind the steely gaze of the nationâ€™s ultimate hero
is a young man primed to become an American Assassin.
