Book #34–Memorial Day

411gszXNOJL._SL160_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-dp,TopRight,12,-18_SH30_OU01_AA160_Memorial Day is an intense book, and one that I worried might come true in the US someday. It’s a good read, and one that stands alone. The last one of the “old” Mitch Rapp before he changes in the next one.

I’m sure I’ve posted this one before, but a search doesn’t show up. This is the nuclear bomb book, where terrorists have managed to dig up a bunch of nuclear material from old Soviet tests. Many Muslims died doing this, and one is dying, the leader of a plot.

The plot is discovered by Rapp, using methods that aren’t approved of. He’s again pitted against politicians that want him to stop using his rough tactics, and he’s angry. His anger gets him in trouble with the President, that is until they find radioactive material in a contained that arrives in Charleston.

People are relieved, but Rapp doesn’t stop looking since there’s a missing Pakistani scientist still out there. A good thing since only half the material was intercepted. Another half makes it to DC, but Rapp manages to find it on a boat.

Lots of coincidences, and lots of typical mistakes made by everyone by Rapp, but it’s still an exciting book.
