Summary

It's just seven days before Memorial Day, and a spike in CIA intelligence has pointed to a major terrorist attack on the United States. Now it's up to counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp to pull out all the stops.
Rapp immediately leaves for Afghanistan, where he leads a special forces unit on a daring commando raid across the border into a remote Pakistani village. Their target: an al-Qaeda stronghold. Rapp and his team soon discover plans for a catastrophic nuclear attack on Washington, DC. Information is quickly relayed back to CIA headquarters, and a nuclear emergency support team scrambles to the scene. In a few hours, the freighters have been located and disarmed and the danger has been averted. Or has it?
Mitch Rapp can't shake the feeling that the operation seemed just a bit too easy. Rapp follows his instincts on a quest to unearth the whole truth. What he finds is truly terrifying, and with Memorial Day closing fast, Rapp must find a way to prevent a disaster of unimaginable proportions.

Ditto on the High Fives!

One of Vince Flynn's best novels, read by one of my most favorite Audible narrators, George Guidall!

Worth every penny, worth every minute. I now have another favorite in my Audible library. Even though I've read all of Vince Flynn's books in hardback, I have every intention of buying Audible's, unabridged Consent to Kill and Act of Treason - both of which are also narrated by George Guidall! And yes! If Audible ever offers American Assassin, narrated by Guidall, I'll buy it immediately.

Highly recommended!

Flynn's best Mitch Rapp Book

This has been my favorite Rapp book to date. Mitch Rapp kicks a-- from beginning to end. When he is not taking out the bad guys, he is putting the spineless politicians in their place. I love Mitch Rapp and if Flynn ever takes him out, I am done. These books give me the escape I need from the political divide that exist in our country today. Hats off to Mr Guidall as he does a great job with the narration.
