Mitch Rapp is a highly skilled killer, devoted to the United States, and has a strong sense of honor. This is why Damian Losa, a Mexican billionaire and “the most powerful criminal in the world,” calls on him for help. Losa explains that he helped Rapp in the past and Rapp feels obligated to repay the debt.
Losa wants to know about the Captagon drug business in Western Europe, which causes irreversible brain damage and psychosis. Rapp agrees to go to Syria disguised as a Canadian lawyer to investigate the matter.

He discovers that the Russians are responsible for exporting the drug to the West. During his mission, Rapp gets into some violent gunfights and even commits a cruel act of violence himself. Despite the action taking place in Syria, the most interesting part of the story is the dialogue between Rapp and the Russians.
A Russian general remarks that Russia is a “starving old woman lashed by the Siberian wind,” and Rapp observes that the Russians “play to make everyone else lose.” It is clear that Rapp is determined to take down the bad guys and fulfill his debt to Losa.
