When a spike in CIA intelligence suggests a major terrorist attack planned for Memorial Day, the president orders Mitch Rapp to pull out all the stops. Rapp 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, files and bills for multiple freighters heading to US ports - all pointing to plans for a catastrophic attack on Washington DC. Information is relayed to CIA HQ. In a few hours, the freighters have been located and the danger averted. Or has it? To Mitch Rapp, it all seems 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.
