I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
Vince Flynn novel Executive Power excites and thrills again via the distinct and powerfully entertaining narration of George Guidall. I'm a top fan of the Mitch Rapp series! Loved it!
Flynn's earlier books are not nearly as good as his later ones and this is a perfect example. The plot was a little weak and basically split between two unrelated story lines. The narration was just as good as the later books. George Guidall does an outstanding job.

I am well into the Mitch Rapp series and I really enjoyed this latest one. Mitch appears to have turned the corner into being one involved in planning as much as executing CIA projects. At times he appears to be everywhere at once and is more involved in the "Big Picture." He is not just one person carrying out unconnected tasks. However, while seeking out the "Bad Guys," the story makes you stop to think "Who are out Friends?" Although I am a strong supporter of the Israli cause, this book opened my eyes a little. In the past 10-15 years, I have come to realize that in some ways the US might be just as bad as some of the other nations. In this book I lsaw that Israel also may be just as political and out for their own interests at the expense of others. The author did an excellent job leading the listener through the winding halls of international intrigue, particularly when much of it occured on our own soil. Rapp and Kennedy have worked themselves into a very comfortable relationship full of respect and even Rapp's love life appears possible, despite his delicate job. I am still, however, waiting for the other shoe to drop.
As an aside: two books ago, Rapps female friend's name was pronounced "Reel -ee,"with the accent on the first syllable. In the last book (with a different narrator), it was pronounced as "Ril -ee", with the accent still on the first syllable. In this book, with George Guidall narrating (my favorite narrator), it was pronounced as "Re-al-le" with the accent on the second syllable. I wish the narrators could all get together to agree on the correct pronounciation. Anyway, I am just starting "Memorial Day" and expect it to be just as good as the last book.
Loved the book!! Love the series. Just wish all of the Mitch Rapp series were read by Guidall.
No offense to others but you all pale when compared to George Guidall. His characters come alive and conjure up the faces of the characters he's portraying. I actually search for books he's the reader for, he's just that good!
Awesome as usual! Vince Flynn doesn't disappoint, and Mitch Rapp just gets badder and badder! Love Guidall's narration.
I love to listen to many novels in the star wars series,Stephen king novels, history, and biographies as well.
I loved the United States triumph in stopping the destruction of a middle eastern country by terrorists who want peace only through violence.
The plot was action packed which always keeps me listening.
Guidall brings a powerful voice of anger when reading characters frustrated emotions.
Based on all the action, and the way Flynn brings each chapter to a close with a cliff hanger, I would listen to this straight through if I had the time.
I liked the personal conflict that Rapp has as a C I A employee. He grapples with still being an op in the field, and getting used to working in Washington will politicians that he does not always agree with. In the end, I am glad Rapp is still part of the action. This makes all of the novels in this series worth listening to.
Two simultaneous adventures take place in this Mitch Rapp chronicle. In addition to a great story, the narrator did a fantastic job!
After a few Mitch Rapp novels, that were good, but not great, the Mitch Rapp we have come to know and love is back... and how!
Great characters, great story and impeccably presented by George Guidall, great to have him back.
A must read!
