This is my review of the book Protect and Defend by Vince Flynn – (This is what I was coming to write when I found that my previous review of Huntingtower was not there)
This is a book that has an end point and works directly towards that end point, but it does explore the ideas of what is legal and right when trying to get information out of someone – does the end justify the means.
Iran has a nuclear facility hidden in the centre of one of it's cities – deep underground and an Israeli agent manages to destroy it, creating a tomb for all the people working inside and a radioactive environmental disaster.
The American's get blamed for the action saying it is the result of a spy plane bombing. Things quickly start to get out of hand as the United Nations condems the attacks, and Iran threatens to cut off the oil supply to the west.
The Lebanese terrorist Imad Mukhtar then enters the fray and wants to take advantage of the quickly deteriorating situation. OF course there is only one person that the American President can call on to help and that is Mitch Rapp, the CIA superhero. He goes on the rampage against the plotting terrorists, with the motto shoot first ask questions afterwards, with the aim of averting total meltdown of the west.
