I have enjoyed every Vince Flynn book that I have read or listened to and this is no exception. Another non stop thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I would have given it 5 stars if the narration was better. It wasn't bad but the narrator seems to have a limited array of voices. One for the good guys, one for the bad guys and one for the female characters good or bad.
This book is definitely not for us faint hearted lovers of civil liberties -- rights are invaded left and right, on the rationale that the hero is a hero and the bad guys don't deserve any rights anyway. Including rights not to be tortured. This is also not a book for those who think that bureaucratic infighting shouldn't be conducted with live weapons. Having said that, the book is well plotted and fun. It is the world as some law enforcement folks wish it could be. (Hard to believe that there are some who STILL think law enforcement on the federal level faces too many checks!)
Once again, a superb thriller featuring Mitch Rapp. As usual, the plot is fascinating and Mitch is tough, capable and efficient. This ranks right up there with Consent To Kill. Why can't we have more Vince Flynn's books in the unabridged versions? I'd love to listen to more, but I find the abridged versions like listening to a condensed book, just not my choice at all.
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.
