It's just seven days before Memorial Day, and a spike in CIA intelligence has pointed to a major terrorist attack on the United States. Now it's up to counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp to pull out all the stops.
Rapp immediately leaves for Afghanistan, where he leads a special forces unit on a daring commando raid across the border into a remote Pakistani village. Their target: an al-Qaeda stronghold. Rapp and his team soon discover plans for a catastrophic nuclear attack on Washington, DC. Information is quickly relayed back to CIA headquarters, and a nuclear emergency support team scrambles to the scene. In a few hours, the freighters have been located and disarmed and the danger has been averted. Or has it?
Mitch Rapp can't shake the feeling that the operation seemed just a bit too easy. Rapp follows his instincts on a quest to unearth the whole truth. What he finds is truly terrifying, and with Memorial Day closing fast, Rapp must find a way to prevent a disaster of unimaginable proportions.
Five (Huge) Boundless Stars
I can describe Memorial Day simply with “action-packed intensity,” but that would make for a boring review, wouldn’t it?.
First of all, this is one of the very rare occasions where I picked an audio book both my husband and I enjoyed. We love listening to books on our road trips; however, it usually ends up with him listening to something about vampires, or me becoming terrified by something by Stephen King. Thanks to Flynn, that didn’t happen this time. We both loved this book!
An exciting story of good versus evil for the good of America is sure to please everyone. I highly recommend this for your next road trip or just as a quick read (or listen) for a day at the beach. It’s a huge 5 Boundless Stars from me.
