Protect and Defend is the 8th book in the Mitch Rapp series. Mitch Rapp is a CIA operative who specialises in the jobs that the agency doesn’t want to admit to. He gets things done, despite often causing controversy through his methods.
An on screen parrelell to him would be Jack Bauer – in fact Vince Flynn (the writer) is a advisor on the new series of 24.
I love Vince Flynn’s books, this is the first of my Christmas books that I have read and it was such a page turner.
Synopsis – Iran are on the brink of developing a nuclear weapon, when Israel are forced to act. By destroying Iran’s nuclear facility they create an international crisis with Iran swearing vengeance on both Israel and America.
