Act of Treason | [Vince Flynn]

Act of Treason

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.

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.

    "Act Of Treason by Vince Flynn"

    Another wonderful book by Vince Flynn. Very enjoyable - a book I found myself sitting in the car in the driveway to complete a section. The Narrator again was superb. This writer is just so good consistently he amazes me - onto his next book.

    "A Must for Lovers of Vince Flynn/Mitch Rapp fans"

    Another one of Vince Flynn's better novels, read by one of my most favorite Audible narrators, George Guidall! If you ask me, George Guidall's voice IS exactly what I imagine WOULD BE the voice of Mitch Rapp. Sheer perfection on Audible's part in putting these two together.

    If you're a Vince Flynn/Mitch Rapp fan, this book delivers globe trotting, fast action, heavy handed interrogations, I mean torture . . . no I mean interrogations - hell, what I mean is getting the J-O-B done! Not to mention the fact that this incredibly entertaining book ends with JUSTICE being served. I really enjoyed this Vince Flynn Audible book. I was glued to my chair and finished the whole adventure in 3 sittings.

    Highly recommended!

    "Act of Treason"

    Pure escapism! Definitely not literature, but an excellent read. It would be nice to think there is someone out there like Mitch Rapp - on our side only though...

    Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.

    "If it's your polemics...."

    Vince Flynn is a polemicist. He writes propaganda. BUT.... if it is your propaganda, well... he writes it GOOD! And here he's at his very best. Good guys beat the c**p out of bad dudes. Which, if you agree with Flynn's definition of what is bad... Hey, it's entertainment and EXACTLY what you pay the price to enjoy. Worth every one of the five stars I gave it since, I dig the grease on this polemical slide.

    "A Good one"

    I really enjoyed this book. It did not disappoint me, but neither has any other Vince Flynn book. The more I listen the more I wanted to hear. It was one of those that you wanted to listen all the way through without interuptions. I highly recommend this one.

    "Act of Treason"

    The book was good but I don't care for his reader. I listen to a lot of books and there are just some readers I find their voice annoying like chalk on a blackboard. This reader is one of them. I'm sure Mr. Guidall is a very nice person I just don't like his voice. Will this keep me from buying more of Mr. Flynn's audible books? Maybe! One of the better readers is Dick Hill with the Lee Childs books and Michael Beck from the Grisham books. I'm sorry to mark the book down but it was due to the reader not the content.

    "Great book, ok narration"

    I have enjoyed every Vince Flynn book that I have read or listened to and this is no exception. Another non stop thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I would have given it 5 stars if the narration was better. It wasn't bad but the narrator seems to have a limited array of voices. One for the good guys, one for the bad guys and one for the female characters good or bad.

    "Fun right wing listen"

    This book is definitely not for us faint hearted lovers of civil liberties -- rights are invaded left and right, on the rationale that the hero is a hero and the bad guys don't deserve any rights anyway. Including rights not to be tortured. This is also not a book for those who think that bureaucratic infighting shouldn't be conducted with live weapons. Having said that, the book is well plotted and fun. It is the world as some law enforcement folks wish it could be. (Hard to believe that there are some who STILL think law enforcement on the federal level faces too many checks!)

    "Another winner!"

    Once again, a superb thriller featuring Mitch Rapp. As usual, the plot is fascinating and Mitch is tough, capable and efficient. This ranks right up there with Consent To Kill. Why can't we have more Vince Flynn's books in the unabridged versions? I'd love to listen to more, but I find the abridged versions like listening to a condensed book, just not my choice at all.

    "Great Read or Listen"

    If you have not read any of Vince Flynn's other books, you should. Attempt to read his first thru the last written. Act of Treason continues in the same well written, straight story line story telling without, what I call taking a side path to describe bits and characters not directly related to Rapp or the story line. All his books are scary because what he describes could or has happened in the war on terror. Flynn's writing style and detail remind me of Tom Clancey without the extra 300 to 400 pages.

    Flynn is one of my favorite writers and I hope he continues to deliver one book every 12 - 18 month time frame, even though one a month would be better....just impossible.
