Publisher's Summary

It's a gorgeous autumn day in Georgetown. The Democratic candidates for president and vice-president of the United States are dutifully glad-handing voters and the media outside a grand estate where a national-security conference has just been held, bringing together the world's greatest minds to discuss the issues that are threatening the country. It's American politicking at its best. That's when all hell breaks loose.

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.

Don't miss more thrillers by Vince Flynn.

    "Another Gem, by Vince Flynn"
    If you could sum up Act of Treason in three words, what would they be?

    I started this series a few month ago, and I absolutely love all of them. George Guidall is an awesome narrator, and really adds to the suspense of this novel. The Mitch Rapp series is highly recommended....

    "Good Story with a nice twist"

    I have become quite a fan of Vince Flynn's hero Mitch Rapp. Similarly, I concur with the reviewer who sang the praises of the Narrator, George Guidall. His delivery seems perfectly suited to the characters and is so good that one hesitates to try a book without him as narrator!
    I liked the twist in this book and the build up & construction of the storyline.
    Altogether, a good plot, well told!

    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.

    Story
    "Kennedy gets in the action"
    What did you love best about Act of Treason?

    The action and the adventure in which we see not only Rapp involved with but also Kennedy. I mean, righteous, poisoning in the the Oval office. So freaking cool


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rapp-he just is so cool with a no BS attitude for politics or stupid things get in the way of taking care of business and making sure America is safe from foreign or domestic enemies


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction except pure enjoyment and not wanting to turn off the audio and listen until the end of the book


    Any additional comments?

    As always Vince Flynn has taken Mitch for a ride and amazingly Mitch fixes the nation's problems and prevails in the end even though he may not personally get ahead or even come out even, for Mitch its all about America and making sure she's safe and sound and prospering.

    Story
    "Outstanding !!!"
    What did you love best about Act of Treason?

    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...!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The climax with Kennedy's involvement.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Too much in it for that.


    Any additional comments?

    Brilliantly weaved together. I would have liked to have learned of the Saudi connection being disposed of in the end.

    "Love Vince Buy Everything!!!"

    Just do yourself a favor and buy ALL the Vince Flynn/Mitch Rapp books in order and listen to them that way. Great reading and suburb action. Among my favorites of all time - and I read and blog on many books.

    "Flynn and Guidall , a really good match."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The only thing I like hearing more than my mother in law saying good bye is Guidall reading Flynn.

    "Good Book - Not the best in the series, but Good."

    I am going through the series, this is definitely good. Can't say it is one of the best in the series thus far, but still good nonetheless. Recommend.

    "Thrilling"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    We were listening during our long drive and it kept us awake, alert, and captivated.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The suspenseful pace.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Irene Kennedy served coffee to Mark Ross.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    The 4 stars for the story was for the language and the sexual content. I've been listening to the other books in the series and this story had more of the foul language and explicit sexual scenes that were disturbing than entertaining. It certainly did not add to the story. I hope the next books will not be as bad.
