Publisher's Summary

An action-packed and all-too-realistic vision of nations navigating the minefield of international intrigue, Protect and Defend is Vince Flynn's most explosive political thriller yet. The action begins in the heart of Iran, where billions of dollars are being spent on the development of a nuclear program. No longer willing to wait for the international community to stop its neighboring enemy, Israel launches a creative and daring operation that leaves a radioactive tomb in the middle of Iran's second largest city. An outraged Iranian government publicly blames both Israel and the United States and demands retribution. Enter Mitch Rapp, America's top counterterrorism operative. Rapp convinces President Josh Alexander to sign off on a risky operation that will push Iran to the brink of revolution. But when Iran recruits Hezbollah master terrorist Imad Mukhtar, and a CIA effort goes disastrously wrong, Rapp and Mukhtar are set on a collision course that threatens to engulf the entire region in war. With the clock ticking, Rapp is given 24 hours, no questions asked, to do whatever it takes to stop Mukhtar, and avert an unthinkable catastrophe.


What the Critics Say

"Flynn didn't invent the post-9/11 thriller, but he might as well have....[He] is the best pure adrenaline-charged action writer out there today." (Providence Journal)

My boy Mitch

This is not great literature. What this is, is 10 or 12 hours of great escapist fiction. No holds barred. If you liked the others in the series you'll like this one too and only regret it's not another 4 hours longer.

The ending is a little too pat but it doesn't detract from the overall story. George Guidall is a most excellent reader and does a great job.

Gimme more Vince.

- Jesse "Long commutes have turned me into a dedicated Audible fan. Looking at my stats I can't believe I have 825 titles in my Library."

Best book I've listened to this year

This has to be my favourite of all of the Mitch Rapp series. George Guidall is an incredible reader. If you have not listened to any of the series start on "Consent to Kill" and work your way through them. Truly the best I've come across so far!
