If you have not read any of Vince Flynn's other books, you should. Attempt to read his first thru the last written. Act of Treason continues in the same well written, straight story line story telling without, what I call taking a side path to describe bits and characters not directly related to Rapp or the story line. All his books are scary because what he describes could or has happened in the war on terror. Flynn's writing style and detail remind me of Tom Clancey without the extra 300 to 400 pages.
Flynn is one of my favorite writers and I hope he continues to deliver one book every 12 - 18 month time frame, even though one a month would be better....just impossible.
This is the first audio book that I actually spent time in my driveway after I got home and listened to. It was fast paced and gripping, Vince Flynn keeps your attention non-stop throughout. The narrator also brought great acting skills to the read, he completed the thrill ride. I wish the older books were unabridged as I now want to go back and catch up on this great series. Hope the publishers are listening.
I wasn't familiar with this author so didn't know what to expect. The pace and plot development were excellent - gripping almost from the beginning and through the last chapter. I found myself listing to the book outside of the drive time and in the end, every chance possible in order to see how the story would develop.
Vince Flynn has done it again with "Act of Treason". Very engrossing and fast paced, with the characters we have come to love from his other Mitch Rapp sagas.
If you like the show "24", you will enjoy this book. An exciting plot full of colorful characters. The tension level would have been higher if the hero had been a little more flawed or conflicted or at least not so darn invinceable. But it was still a fun listen.
This series tends to be a bit one dimensional, but at the same time they are quite fun and hold my interest. This was an especially good book as it continues where the previous book leaves off and tidies up some of the lose ends nicely.
I enjoyed every minute of this rich and suspenseful spy novel. The characters are so real they make you wonder if this could really happen. Sometimes a "one man show" such as Mitch Rapp is too much to believe but Vince Flynn does such a good job developing the story line and the character depth that the plot comes alive. I literally couldn't put it down and was actually sorry when it ended. I can't wait to hear the next book which I expect will continue as the characters, and the history they live, will continue into their future.
I couldn't stop listening to the book - one exciting event to another. I kept wondering: How can this possibly end and the country not be torn apart. Vince Flynn's style of writing is fast paced and he keeps building the tension.
I'll be glad when another of his books becomes available so I can download it.
A fun book, but the world-view of the book is kind of silly. On the one-hand, we learn that the rule of law is obsolete and widespread government torture and secret prisons always work great. On the other hand, two thirds of the government officials in the book are incompetent or treasonous; reminding us why in the real world government power needs to be checked. The book could be improved with a less cartoony view of the world.
