"I could hardly put this book down to eat, sleep or work.."
Tensions are simmering in the Middle East, so CIA Director Irene Kennedy is given the green light to form a group of clandestine operatives – men who do not appear to exist and only work under the radar. She finds the perfect candidate in the wake of the Pan Am Lockerbie disaster.
Two hundred and seventy people lost their lives on that cold December night with thousands of family members and friends left searching for some solace and comfort. Gifted college student Mitch Rapp was one of the many, he didn't want platitudes or pity – he wanted revenge.
After six months of intense training he finds himself in Istanbul face to face with the arms dealer who sold the explosives used in the atrocity. From there he moves to Europe where he once again leaves a trail of bodies in his wake. Next it is on to Beirut, but what he doesn't know is that the enemy is aware of him and has laid a trap.
When the hunter becomes the hunted then Rapp is forced to use every scrap of cunning and skill he possesses just to survive.
