About The Book
SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE starring Dylan O'Brien (Maze Runner), Taylor Kitsch (True Detective) and Michael Keaton.
Tensions in the Middle East are simmering when Central Intelligence Agency Director Irene Kennedy pays a visit to Syracuse University, where she hopes to recruit none other than Mitch Rapp, a student who has quickly climbed up the academic and athletic ranks. At first glance, he appears like any other smart, good-looking American college kid. Under the surface, however, a tempest rages.
Nine months later, after gruelling training, Mitch finds himself in Istanbul on his first assignment. He hits his target but quickly sees, for the first time, what revenge means...
The new pulse-pounding thriller from the New York Times No. 1 bestselling phenomenon.

'Vince Flynn clearly has one eye on Lee Child's action thriller throne with this twist-laden story. Mitch Rapp is the resident brawny Bourne-alike…parachuted into Beirut to eliminate a group of jihadists'
'Flynn does not do subtle – this is action-packed, in-your-face, adrenalin-pumped super-hero macho escapist fiction that does exactly what it says on the label'
– Irish Independent
