Memorial Day by Vince Flynn

Hardcover 407 pages




CIA intelligence has pointed to a major terrorist attack on the United States, just as the nation's capital prepares for a grand Memorial Day tribute to the veterans of World War II. Racing to Afghanistan, Mitch Rapp leads a commando raid on an al Queda stronghold in a remote border village — and defuses plans for a nuclear strike on Washington. The crisis averted, the special ops work is done. But Rapp knows, in the face of a new kind of enemy, nothing is as it seems — and it's up to him alone to avert a disaster of unimaginable proportions.

My Take:

This is the best Vince Flynn novel I have read to date. Action from start to finish. This is fiction, but what makes this book even better is the fact that this could actually happen. I am sure terrorists want to set of a nuke in Washington DC. Maybe they have a plan to do so right at this moment and are looking for a way to do it. Though just a book, it reads like current events. When a terror group does get there hands on a nuclear weapon, I hope we have a Mitch Rapp to save the day.

I rate this book a 9.9
