Publisher Description

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.

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
