Before he was considered a CIA superagent, before he was thought of as a terroristâs worst nightmare, and before he was both loathed and admired by the politicians on Capitol Hill, Mitch Rapp was a college athlete without a care in the worldâ¦then tragedy struck.
Â Â Â Â 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 Americaâs shores. Stansfield directs his protÃ©gÃ©e, Irene Kennedy, and his old Cold War colleague, Stan Hurley, to form a new group of clandestine operatives to work outside the normal chain of commandâmen who do not exist.
Â Â Â Â 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.
Â Â Â Â Six months of intense training has prepared him to bring the war to the enemyâs 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 doesnât know is that the enemy is aware of his existence and has prepared a trap.
Â Â Â Â As action-packed, fast-paced, and brutally realistic as it gets, Flynnâs thriller tells listeners how it all began.
