Quotes & Awards

  • “Executive Power is political thriller at its best.

    Midwest Book Review

  • Executive Power couldn’t be more timely.”

    St. Paul Pioneer Press

  • “Flynn’s timing with these thrillers is uncanny…Another explosive tale of international intrigue from a master of the high-concept thriller.”

    Booklist

  • “George Guidall’s reading is flawless. As he keeps the story moving at a brisk pace, Guidall saves his best performances for the interactions between Rapp and his new wife and between Rapp and CIA Chief Irene Kennedy. The scene in which the two women discuss Rapp’s gunshot wound to the derrire is particularly memorable.”

    " Enjoy Mitch Rapp. However this book makes me question the people and the power people have over the President and the decisions he makes. "

    " Mitch is at it again....a well structured, well paced and well told story....I'm reading these pot-boilers a bit our of sequence but this one is when Mitch in just married and balancing the priorities of saving the world (Again!) and sorting out how to be in a newly married relationship with a career wife and White House Press Reporter ( only one character for both).... He better learn quickly or he'll get bitten in the ass.....Well, he does.....but what he does is yours to find out....I liked it as a better / best book of Flynn's and a good beach read....but then again, I'm in Kau'ai!!! Aloha "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom Glow | 2/10/2014

    " Fast read but maybe not up there with Flynn's earlier books. Looking forward to the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy Schoolfield | 2/4/2014

    " Another Mitch Rapp story, another four-star effort. I'm still waiting for Flynn to completely blow me away with one of these the way, say, Ludlum did with his best work. Maybe that will never happen since Flynn chooses to focus more on political intrigue than action. Nevertheless, this was another solid, enthralling installment, with good dual plotlines and compelling characters throughout. Reading this one at the exact same time as the real-life Palestinians were making noise at the UN made it particularly poignant. I will definitely read every Rapp tale. Flynn's authenticity and attention to detail, along with Rapp's penchant for cutting through the crap, is what makes these so readable. "

    " Again, an interesting plot concept. Multiple threads come together nicely. this stuff is easy to read and fun to read. I highly recommend this series and author "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise | 10/14/2013

    " Think Jack Bauer for books. This is book 4 in the Mitch Rapp series. At this point, they sort of started to mix together in my memory (my first book from Flynn was "Term Limits", so it's similar), but I'm sure it was excellent. "

    " It is ridiculous that I keep reading these books. they are so insular, so right wing, so...I hate to say it, but boring. Hmph. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 5/10/2011

    " 3 and a half

    My 4th Mitch Rapp. Always a pulse raising diversion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 4/17/2011

    " Somehow missed this one when it first came out, and saw the paperback in the supermarket. Reading it out of order (without realizing it at first) threw me off a bit. Still a good yarn. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tejka | 3/22/2011

    Again, I did not like the ending. It just kind of ends without a cocnlusion in my opinion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 2/12/2011

    " With seemingly 2 separate plot lines going, Flynn closes up one of them with 1/3 of the book still to be read. It was a struggle to continue reading, but the end progressed nicely and was fairly thrilling. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 2/10/2011

    " Listened to on tape. Okay story, predictable writing. It filled the time in the car. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith | 1/16/2011

    " Vince Flynn and his hero Mitch Rapp are always a fun read. This one is good but not great. Still I am reading all of them in order. This is the 4th. Sort of an American James Bond dealing with domestic issues that somehow expand to world wide issues.df Fun and entertaining. "

About the Author
Author Vince Flynn

Vince Flynn (1966–2013) was born in St. Paul, Minnesota.

He earned a sterling reputation for his research and prescient warnings about the rise of radical Islamic fundamentalism and terrorism.
