**The #**1 New York Times bestselling author of American Assassin—now a major motion picture—delivers “first-class political intrigue from a master storyteller” (Booklist) in this electrifying Mitch Rapp thriller.
The confirmation of Dr. Irene Kennedy as the CIA’s new director explodes into chaos when it becomes clear there is a deadly inside plot to destroy her and prematurely end her term. Meanwhile, as a dangerous world leader gains power in the nuclear arms race, Israel forces the president’s hand with a chilling ultimatum.
With the specter of World War III looming, the president calls on top counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp, who scours the alleys of Baghdad and the avenues of Washington for America’s enemies. But with only two weeks to take out the nukes, Rapp is up against a ticking clock and impossible odds in this “sharply plotted thriller” (Publishers Weekly).
