Protect and Defend Paperback / softback

Part of the The Mitch Rapp Series series

Paperback / softback


THE NUMBER ONE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER FROM THE AUTHOR OF AMERICAN ASSASSIN With Iran on the brink of developing a nuclear weapon, Israel is forced to react.

In a daring raid, Israel destroys Iran's main nuclear facility, creating a radioactive tomb and an environmental disaster.

An outraged United Nations condemns the attacks while Iran swears vengeance against Israel and her chief backer: the USA. Enter Lebanese master terrorist Imad Mukhtar, who has spent the past decade picking his targets and preparing his cells for this exact moment.

All he needs to launch his strike against America is approval from Iran's Supreme Council. With the US on high alert, the President calls on the one man ruthless enough to counter the fanatical terrorist: Mitch Rapp, America's terrorist hunter and one-man wrecking crew.

Rapp tracks Mukhtar across Europe to America, where they are pitted against each other.

He grabs you by the scruff of the neck on page 1 and doesn't let you go until the end'Stephen Leather
