#1 New York Times bestselling author of American Assassin—now a major motion picture
The fallout from a horrific Washington explosion has just begun—and so has CIA superagent Mitch Rapp’s hunt for a killer with a personal agenda—in this explosive thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn.
In the final weeks of a fierce presidential campaign, a motorcade carrying candidate Josh Alexander is shattered by a car bomb. Soon after the attack, Alexander is carried to victory by a sympathy vote, but his assailants have not been found. When CIA director Irene Kennedy and Special Agent Skip McMahon receive damaging intelligence on Washington’s most powerful players, they call on Mitch Rapp—the one man reckless enough to unravel a global network of contract killers on an explosive mission that leads back to the heart of our nation’s capital…and the inner sanctum of the Oval Office.

A great thriller involving the war on terrorism
You can agree or disagree with the politics but the writer never sacrifices story or thrills to make some political point. Reviewers who want to judge the book based on their perception of the writer's politics must really choose their books carefully so as to avoid any work of fiction that presents a point of view different from their own. For what it's worth, the presidents are all strong -- and Democrats. The hero is a take-no--prisoners anti-terrorists superhero type. Not surprisingly, the writer consulted on 24 for one season. The pace is great; the details of weaponry and the diplomatic scene are spot on. It's simply great fun.
