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's spent the past decade picking his targets and preparing his cells for this exact moment. All he needs is approval from Iran's Supreme Council, and he will strike at America's soft underbelly and make her bleed like never before. With the US on high alert, the President calls on the one man ruthless enough to counter the fanatical terrorist. Enter Mitch Rapp, America's terrorist hunter and one man wrecking crew. Meeting violence with violence, Rapp tracks Mukhtar across Europe to America, where they are pitted against each other in a hunt only one of them can survive.
