With Iran on the brink of developing a nuclear weapon, Israel is forced to react - and triggers an international crisis. 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 Counci, and he will strike at America.

With the US on high alert, the President calls on the one man ruthless enough to counter the fanatical terrorist. Meeting violence with violence, CIA operative Mitch Rapp tracks his mark across Europe to America where they are finally pitted against each other in a hunt only one of them can survive.

Look out for the new Vince Flynn novel, The Survivor, published in autumn 2015!

Publishers Weekly Review

01 October 2007 – Despite Guidall's best efforts, Flynn's words are so flat and his characters and plot so contrived and mechanical that it's hard to imagine who might actually enjoy this listening chore. The subject is certainly timely: what should the U.S. government do to defuse the Iranian nuclear program? Flynn's solution is to have top secret counterterrorism expert Mitch Rapp try to destabilize the Iranian government-a plan which goes wrong when his boss, CIA chief Irene Kennedy, is kidnapped. Guidall does manage to catch some of the sadness in Rapp's heart as he thinks about the loss of his family in a previous novel. But Guidall can't rewrite Flynn's words-very few of which give Rapp any semblance of human feeling. Simultaneous release with the Atria hardcover (Reviews, Sept. 24).
