When presidential candidate Josh Alexander's motorcade is ambushed by a group of terrorists, the nation is thrown into turmoil. Two weeks following the attack, Alexander is carried to victory by a sympathy vote, but his assailants have not been found. On the surface, it appears to be the work of al-Qaeda, and soon the FBI and the rest of the government begin scouring the world for jihadists. But then CIA Director Irene Kennedy and Special Agent Skip McMahon are presented with classified information so toxic that they consider destroying it altogether, as it contains intelligence pointing to some of the most powerful players in Washington.
Enter Mitch Rapp, the one man reckless enough to follow the evidence to its explosive conclusion. His journey takes him through the shadowy world of contract killers, into the darkest corners of the globe, and eventually back to Washington, where the fragile pillars of power are shaken to the core.

"[A] page turner....with...taut writing and [a] plausible vision of the real work of the intelligence community." (Publishers Weekly)
I have a strong preference for the SPOKEN, as opposed to the written word. Although a poor reader may detract from a book, a truly capable reader adds immeasurably to the enjoyment of a good book.
If you would like to take a break from the mundane trivia of everyday life and spend a few hours in a make-believe world of action, justice, and retribution, Vince Flynn is your ticket. His good guys are wonderfully good and powerful, the bad guys absolutely despicable, and in the end, justice will always prevail. Recently I started from the beginning of the series and intend to continue to the latest. Those read by George Guidall are thoroughly enjoyable. Those by other readers, not so much. If you like this kind of entertainment, I suggest you do the series. Get to know the characters and their predilections. Take a great trip through the wild, crazy, often violent, but never disappointing world of Mitch Rapp.
I'm not one for CIA spy stories involving foreign connections, assasination attempts, etc. But in looking for a new author and in spite of the description, I bought it anyway and am I glad I did. Start to finish it's completely worth every minute spent listening. Do yourself a favor...buy this one!
I had waiting for Mr. Flynn's new book, since I heard Consent to Kill. Act of Treason, was as good as the last one. It drew me in and did not let me put it down. The bad thing about a book this good, is that I ignore everything and everyone around me for the duration. Great book!!! Can't wait for the next one.
Mitch Rapp is back! This is a great listen, worthy of the superb Vince Flynn tradition. It also leaves the door open for more Rapp, which is even better. I actually drove around just to hear the ending. A modern political thriller -Excellent!
Keeps your attention from start to finish!
Vince Flynn has not written a "bad book"!!
This is crazy. I almost wish my brother hadn't put me onto Vince Flynn. I am going through this complete series as fast as I can. I catch my self listening to this series when I should be doing other things. I am buying this series two and three books at a time. My one book a month subscription isn't working very well on this series. I just can't wait till next month for another credit. I am buy three extra credits a month so I can get this series completed. I simply love this series. Mitch Rapp has become my favorite "good guy". Much more down to earth and realistic than Jack Reacher or Cotton Malone. I wish I had the money to buy the movie rights for this complete series. If ever there was a series that would be a fantastic movie series this is it. Every bit as good or better than the Jason Bourne.
Along with the "Consent to Kill," Vince Flynn raised raised the bar with "Act of Treason." I've enjoyed all of the Mitch Rapp series, but "Consent to Kill" was the best, with "Act of Treason" a close second.
Vince Flynn wrote exceptional books, he had a way of telling a story that makes you want to read all day & night and then be sorry when it is over.This book is one of the best reads I have experienced, well all in the series fit that description. George Guidall has a great voice, he is able to make me hear all the different characters but his delivery just drives me crazy for the first few hours, it is slurred and sloppy, then he either gets more crisp or I adjust to it and am able to enjoy the reading.
Yes. The story holds the listener's interest from the beginning to the end. While I wouldn't give it 5 stars it is still a good book to buy.
The relatively unexpected ending.
His voice is easy to listen to.
