Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The question of whether we should use kid gloves when dealing with terrorists or religious fanatics is highlighted in this exceptional thriller. Only by using torture, brutality and threats of death are the facts uncovered here, which saves America from a disaster far worse then the Twin Towers. With tremendous pace and excellent characterisation, this is certainly one of the best action thrillers this month.

Comparison: Clive Cussler, Gerald Seymour, David Baldacci.

Synopsis

Memorial Day by Vince Flynn

When a spike in CIA intelligence suggests a major terrorist attack planned for Memorial Day, the president orders Mitch Rapp, his top counter-terrorism operative, to pull out all the stops.

Rapp immediately leaves for Afghanistan where he leads the ultra secret Special Forces unit on a daring commando raid across the border into Northern Pakistan. Their target: an al-Qaeda stronghold. Within a subterranean room, Rapp and his team discover a treasure trove of maps, computers, files and bills of lading for multiple freighters heading to US ports - all pointing to plans for a catastrophic attack on Washington D.C.

Information is quickly relayed back to CIA headquarters, and a nuclear emergency search team scrambles to the scene. In a few hours the freighters have been located and the danger averted.

Or has it?

To Mitch Rapp, the whole operation seemed just a bit too easy. Following his instincts on a quest to unearth the whole truth, Rapp makes a truly terrifying discovery - and with Memorial Day closing fast, he must find a way to prevent a disaster of unimaginable proportions?
