The plot establishes an underground patriot network resolved to getting the country back on track and do away with entrenched partisan politics. Term Limits it the very best of Vince Flynn!
Congressman Michael O'Rourke and Scott Coleman.
When O'Rourke whipped Stu Garrett in the Oval office.
No any particular moment the overall concept and planning seemed excellently composed.
Outstanding read. I have 9 Vince Flynn audio books. This should be made into screenplay and a movie.
The plot was relatively flat on a bland terrorist plot to EMP the US. It ended abruptly as did the bad guys he had started to develop but left half baked. Even the use of Scot Harvath's computer wiz midget was innocuous and disconnected.
Enrich the EMP connection with fact based information about the action. Involve some government agencies that oversee this activity not just the routine Anti-terroism units - NSA, DHS and routine support characters. The connection in North Korea was weak. And, the Chinese "Princelings" component added little if any suspense. That was precisely what was lacking in this novel, suspense and unpredictability. Too formulaic....
Scott Harvath, but he was detached from most of the real actions of the story.
Come on Brad, you are better than this. It was as if the editor put you on a deadline and you needed to respond. Your usually insightful dramatic flair was conspicuously absent in this effort.
Common discussion instead of spiritual babble and unfounded assertions.
The work reviews spirituality as if it is a foreign subject and attempted to place an esoterical component within a subject that should be simply presented. It was written as if he were talking to Ph.D students instead of those searching for personal enlightenment.
From plot to action this Mitch Rapp thriller even brings Irene Kennedy into the action.I only wish we indeed had operatives who worked for America the way these fictional characters do. Brilliant...!
By ensuring that the antagonist - VP Ross a detractor of the CIA, remained arrogant and untouchable until the very end was well done. The CIA's leverage placed upon the Swiss bankers to play ball was outstanding. And finally, in showing the clandestine elements associated with Saudi Arabia and their money lines linked to terrorism was well crafted.
The climax with Kennedy's involvement.
Too much in it for that.
Brilliantly weaved together. I would have liked to have learned of the Saudi connection being disposed of in the end.
