Description
#1 New York Times bestselling author of American Assassin--soon to be a major motion picture

Vince Flynn's thrilling bestseller sends counterterrorist agent Mitch Rapp on a collision course with America's most feared enemy.

No longer willing to wait for the international community to stop its neighboring enemy, Israel brings down Iran's billion-dollar nuclear program in an ingeniously conceived operation. The attack leaves a radioactive tomb and environmental disaster in its wake, and has Iranian president Amatullah calling for blood--American blood. Seeing opportunity where others fear reprisals, Mitch Rapp devises a brilliant plan to humiliate Iran's government and push the nation to the brink of revolution. But when a back-channel meeting between CIA director Irene Kennedy and her Iranian counterpart goes disastrously wrong, Rapp is locked in a showdown with a Hezbollah mastermind in league with Amatullah--and he is given twenty-four hours to do whatever it takes to stop unthinkable catastrophe.


Praise For Protect and Defend

"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."
