An ultra-rich Arab fundamentalist puts a massive bounty to have Mitch killed, bringing out some heavy hitters to participate in his assassination. When he survives the attempt, he gets really pissed off, as you can imagine. The author's distaste for arab muslims is not even disguised, it's blatant. I'm always amazed at the closeness of the national players--in this case, the CIA director has the assassin over to recover after his house is bombed. Entertaining, nontheless.

My favorite Mitch Rapp book so far. I think it must be read after the first five books to be fully appreciated. ( )

Another outstanding Flynn entry....not quite as good as Memorial Day, but emotionally charged and gripping to keep you turning the pages feverishly until the very end. Can't wait to see where Mitch Rapp goes after the tragedy in his life from this book. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
First words
To kill a man is a relatively easy thing--especially the average unsuspecting man. To kill a man like Mitch Rapp, however, would be an entirely different matter. It would take a great deal of planning and a very talented assassin, or more likely a team, who were either brave enough or crazy enough to accept the job. In fact, any sane man by definition would have the sense to walk away.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743270363, Hardcover)

On the front lines of the global war on terror, CIA superagent Mitch Rapp races to save one more life: his own.

An eye for an eye: that's what the powerful father of a dead terrorist demands in retribution -- and with his hate-filled plea, Mitch Rapp becomes the target of an explosive international conspiracy. The fearless operative has both killed with impunity and tortured to avert disaster, all in a battle to preserve freedom. But even among America's allies, some believe the time has come to bring Rapp down. Now the hunter is the hunted, and Rapp must rely on his razor-sharp instincts for survival -- and justice -- as he unleashes his fury on those who have betrayed him.
