MITCH RAPP RETURNS IN VINCE FLYNN'S EIGHTH EXPLOSIVE THRILLER!

It's a gorgeous autumn day in Georgetown. The Democratic candidates for president and vice-president of the United States are dutifully glad-handing voters and the media outside a grand estate where a national security conference has just been held, bringing together the world's greatest minds to discuss the issues that are threatening the country. It's American politicking at its best. That's when all hell breaks loose.

When presidential candidate Josh Alexander's motorcade is ambushed by a group of terrorists, the nation is thrown into turmoil. Two weeks following the attack, Alexander is carried to victory by a sympathy vote, but his assailants have not been found. On the surface it appears to be the work of al-Qaeda, and soon the FBI and the rest of the government begin scouring the world for jihadists. But then CIA director Irene Kennedy and Special Agent Skip McMahon are presented with classified information so toxic that they consider destroying it altogether, as it contains intelligence pointing to some of the most powerful players in Washington.

Enter Mitch Rapp, the one man reckless enough to follow the evidence to its explosive conclusion. His journey takes him through the shadowy world of contract killers, into the darkest corners of the globe, and eventually back to Washington, where the fragile pillars of power are shaken to the core.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dean | 2/17/2014

    " Unfortunately I was disappointed with this book for one specific reason. I think it had probably 10 times as much profanity as all of his previous Mitch Rapp books combined. Having an F-bomb on almost every other page was really disappointing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan | 1/31/2014

    " The book was building up to a big confrontational ending. I was expecting the "bad guy" to be publicly embarrassed, but nope, didn't want the "good guy" to suffer any more. WEAK ending! Otherwise would have been 4 stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard Jackson | 1/29/2014

    " Another suspense filled thriller from Vince Flynn. I always look forward to these and am never disappointed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessianne | 1/27/2014

    " Gosh, this was the crummiest book written so far. Just stupid writing, giving you details that were unnecessary and slowed down the pace too much. But an OK story, and one of those you just can't put down no matter how much you don't care about hearing what side Kennedy was sleeping on when she woke up to her alarm clock. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 1/26/2014

    " This series of the character Mitch Rapp is pretty good fun reading. He is a counterterrorism agent for the CIA who goes after the terrorists before they strike. I've read the whole series back to back, so it gets a bit redundant, but with the normal spread of new books in a series coming out it will be less so I'm sure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 1/23/2014

    " My first Mitch Rapp novel! I picked this up at a resort in Jamaica and hoped it would be good. I will definitely read some of Flynn's other books now. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathy | 1/14/2014

    " Too much swearing, too many dead people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessie | 1/4/2014

    " Mitch Rapp saves the day again. Terroists plan to blow up some political candidates just before an election. This book is full of the 'F' word. There is also a lot of violence. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim Boulware | 12/24/2013

    " I love this Mitch Rapp series. Great book. Fast paced and thrilling. Subject very much like a Tom Clancy book with probably a little less technical detail. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lyndi | 11/28/2013

    " Definitely not my style of book, but so well written and loved it until the very last page! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 11/27/2013

    " I think that this book and all his books are great. They are page turners and very hard to put down because there is so much action the time you open the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 11/5/2013

    " I love, love all/any Vince Flynn books (he is a TC author)! They are fun, enjoyable, easy to read & I simply cannot put them down! Go Mitch Rapp. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nick Gabriel | 9/3/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 6/17/2013

    " Mitch Rapp can bring the action, for sure. All of the books Ive read so far have not disappointed. I love Flynn's approach, but "Act of Treason" was too predictable. I will continue to read the series, since Rapp is such a bad ass, but Flynn needs to add more surprises. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thom | 6/12/2013

    " as advertized it was a page turner not my usual fare but I really enjoyed it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nikki | 8/29/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy McClanahan | 5/12/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Psmoore | 5/12/2011

    " I may sound like a broken record on the Rapp books but I loved this one too. Was waiting to see how they were gonna spin it to catch the right people!
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nneutz | 5/8/2011

    " Excellent. Great story line, hard to put down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Curtis | 4/30/2011

    " It was ok. Predictable, plot relied on people being dumb and arrogant. Some action, but misrepresents how CIA, FBI, etc work. Doesn't make me want to read the rest of the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie | 4/29/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christian | 3/9/2011

    " Great pace and I enjoyed the shift of focus from the Middle East to domestic. Language got noticeably rougher in this one though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 2/26/2011

    " Another excellent book by Mr. Flynn. The Michael Rapp series is necessary reading to those who think that everybody loves America if we just roll over and play nice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 2/20/2011

    " Pretty good. Perhaps if I hadn't been using it to redirect my attention after my father died, I would have enjoyed it more. Interested in reading the next Mitch Rapp in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 2/17/2011

    " Bad guys murder wife of presidential candidate so he'll win the election. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mark | 2/9/2011

    " This book seemed like it was thrown together to fast to fully develop the story. Also, it might have received three stars, but references were made talking junk about Calvin. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 2/8/2011

    " My first Mitch Rapp book, but if definitely will not be my last.
    I love political intrigue. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 1/24/2011

    " not as good as consent to kill, but still quite the page turner "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ken | 1/23/2011

    " Another good Vince Flynn. The beginning of his books are so action packed that sometimes the ends seem a little light, but very good book overall. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Suzette | 1/23/2011

    " I like action books, but I wasn't as impressed with this one. Too much language and other stuff I could do without. Not the best ending either. "
