Another chapter in the life of Mitch Rapp, a CIA agent and assassin who does not conform to normal and legal restraints but whose unorthodox approach has saved many a day. But now there is a contract out on him. A combination of political intrigue and espionage, obsession and determination, police work and counter-terrorism, good characterisation and pathos make this an excellent read, hard to put down.

For years, Mitch Rapp's bold actions have saved the lives of thousands. He has killed with impunity, tortured to avert disaster, and shown he will do whatever it takes to win the War on Terror. His battles for peace and freedom have made him a hero to many — and an enemy to countless more.
Now, the powerful father of a dead terrorist demands vengeance in its simplest form: an eye for an eye. He wants Rapp dead — and his hate-filled plea has found sympathetic ears.
In the tangled world of espionage there are those who feel Rapp has grown too effective. They've been looking for a chance to eliminate America's No 1 counterterrorism operative — and now their time has come.
Rapp must use all his skill and ruthless determination to save himself before he can turn his fury on those who have dared betray him.
