I am a registered nurse and a father of four great kids. I live in a rural part of Oregon and love it. I enjoy books, but Sci-Fi Fantasy has allows been the ones I reach for more than others.
Ousted as spy and possible an assassin by a mad Congressman, Mitch Rapp has to look over his shoulder and step into role he's not meant for, a desk jockey. Rapp has got a steady girl and a job he hates, but one she loves. Because he has been marked as a CIA operator Rapp is stuck behind a desk planning instead of doing the CIA's most secret missions. Well maybe. Again, fans of Flynn will enjoy the adventure, politics, and suspense in which he intertwines in his books.
Started loving books as a teen. Burroughs, Howard, Tolkien. Moved on to Asimov, Keyes and Ludlum. Current faves Greaney, Hunter and Rothfus. I'm an old mechanic who loves the outdoors and computers
I would recommend this book to a friend because it keeps me interested using a great story and the technical information I love.
I've listened to the first four Mitch Rapp novels and, unlike some series I have listened to, this one has remained interesting.
George Guidall's performances have contributed greatly to experience of the novel. I can't imagine anyone else's voice reading these books
No but I sat in the car several times in the drive way to hear the resolution of a couple of tense moments
Highly recommend this series, at least to this point
It grabbed me right away and pulled you all the way.
could not wait to continue it.
Yes it is a good book you will be on your toes all the time
5 stars - books that I will listen to again and again. 4 stars - books that I might listen to again someday. 3 stars - books that I probably won't listen to again. 2 stars - books that I know I will never listen to again. 1 star - books that I should have never listened to in the first place.
After reading everything written by Tom Clancy, Daniel Silva, Brad Thor, David Baldacci, Robert Ludlum, Frederick Forsyth and Jeffery Archer - I found this audible book and decided to give Vince Flynn a try. Wow! I was hooked immediately. Okay, I am biased. Seeing that I have served in the military, I probably have a different point of view than the average civilian. So, if you are a left wing, progressive, hand wringing individual who truly wants to do so very much to save the world while doing absolutely nothing or the kind of person who must follow the "rules" at all cost - you will NOT enjoy this book. However, if you are like me and believe that terrorism is a REAL threat, that torture is a viable OPTION in order to save lives and that killing the bad guys is an acceptable SOLUTION - read Vince Flynn's books and dream on.
"Executive Power" by Vince Flynn is the fourth book in his series about the USA's top counter-terrorism agent, Mitch Rapp. The story starts out pretty basic, an American family vacationing in the Philippines is kidnapped by the terrorist group Abu Sayyaf. Of course, the US government is furious and Filipino government says they are doing their best to find the American family but in reality the highest member of the Filipino military, is being paid off by Abu Sayyaf. Thus, the story speeds up quickly and it is very hard to stop listening to. There are so many PLAUSIBLE twists and turns that this book will keep you on the edge of your seat. By the way, this is the book where Mitch Rapp is shot in the butt!
What I love most of Vince Flynn's books is how he always seems to work in meddling, mealy mouthed, government officials who (sometimes accidentally, many times purposely) screw up the mission plan. The other aspect of Vince Flynn's books that always draws me in is that the hero Mitch Rapp often works in conjunction with the Navy SEALs and that he doesn't always play by the rules. Mitch Rapp always gets the job done and it's a pretty dirty job.
Pure, entertaining, action packed, fast paced fiction. I highly recommend this book when you want to read to escape. To escape into a world where the terrorists are the bad guys and the good guys do whatever it takes to kill them.
Oh! I almost forgot. George Guidall IS the voice of Mitch Rapp. He truly brings Mitch Rapp to life. I do hope that Audible never changes the narrator on these books, they just wouldn't be the same to listen to.
A five star listen because I know I will listen to this book again. Highly Recommended.
I am a fan of George Guidall who did his usual masterful job. I am new to Vince Flynn and am about to download another. Almost from the beginning I was glued to listening. Intriguing and believable story. Although a few things seemed MAYBE a little far fetched, the plot and narration made everything completely real for me. Very highly recommended!
yes. exciting throughout the whole book
Dan Brown books
All of the Mitch Rapp series that I have listened to have been good
Just love listing to audiobooks. Some of my favorite authors are Vince Flynn and Brad Thor
It was fast past and mad it easy to listin to in one day
Yes, fast past and never boring
They are all great
A great thriller of a movie!!!!
I of couse enjoyed this book but I was surprised with how long it took me to finish it. Guidall certainly narrated it very well, but I was not glued to this as with the other books in the series that I've listened to. Perhaps i have the bar set too high for Flynn since his other books were GREAT. This was Good (not great), the story line was just not as captivating.
I'm a retired teacher with "spastic" eyes. Audio books seem made for me! For the first time in my 65 years, reading is fun!!
And I wouldn't have it any other way! Mitch is moving, quite uncomfortably at first, into his married life...and new position. The author does an excellent job...as usual...in creating a fantastic read! It's a mix of adventure, daring, love, intrigue, and great writing!
