When Joe “Rick” Rickman, a former golden boy of the CIA, steals a massive amount of the Agency’s most classified documents in an elaborately masterminded betrayal of his country, CIA director Irene Kennedy has no choice but to send her most dangerous weapon after him: elite covert operative Mitch Rapp.
Mitch quickly dispatches the traitor, but Rickman proves to be a deadly threat to America even from beyond the grave. Eliminating Rick did not solve all of the CIA’s problems—infact, mysterious tip offs are appearing all over the world, linking to the potentially devastating data that Rick managed to store somewhere only he knew.
It’s a deadly race to the finish as both the Americans and the Pakistanis search desperately for Rickman’s accomplices, and for the confidential documents they are slowly leaking to the world. To save his country from being held hostage to a country set on becoming the world’s newest nuclear superpower, Mitch Rapp must out run, out think, and out gun his deadliest enemies yet.
