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"

    Great ending! I honestly didn't see that coming. George Guidall has got to be one of the best narrators I have heard in a very long time. I am glad I discovered Vince Flynn's novels. I rate him right up there with Michael Connelly.

    "Not Flynn's best but worth a listen"

    I love the Mitch Rap series. This version is riveting until the last six chapters. The ending is poorly executed and anticlimactic. It seems as if the author wrote himself into a corner and didn't quite know how to get himself out. I would try to read the series in chronological order. I did not and I think I missed the author's character development and the shared history of the characters.

    I love to read, the books need to be fairly complicated or interesting in their own way. I belong to a book club that selects great books.

    Really enjoyed this book. Twists and turns I did not expect. Recommend to people who like suspense. Flynn is a great writer for people in leisure

    "Another book that's hard to close"

    I had begun to think that no author can continue to write books that carry the intrigue, characterizations, and enjoyment I have enjoyed in this series. I am glad to learn I am wrong. The writing is excellent with a great storyline. The narrator is without question my favorite in this series. He does a wonderful job of keeping the pace just right, and does a great job with differentiating characters and tone with his voice. Others are disappointing in comparison. Once again, the end of the book came too soon, and while I wished for more, I also enjoyed hearing how each piece was put into place. Splendid!

    "Tribute to Vince"

    I've had a lull trying to decide on a new novel. The thought of re-reading Flynn's "Mitch Rapp" series in order was a tremendous idea. It exceeded all expectations seeing the characters and plots develop. It's much different than reading these books as they are produced. I highly recommend this to you.

    The Novelist who will be penning future Rapp books probably isn't going to be take us on that type of wild wonderful ride like VINCE FLYNN I hope he comes up with a prequel or two and explains what happened to Greta and fills a couple holes from early novels.

    It's also great to see Vince's interviews on Utube, damn he comes across a lot like Mitch.
    Thanks for the great books I hope our leaders heed your words and act accordingly.

    Lover of life and lover of books! I read/listen to a wide range (many) but my favorite non fiction are self-help and autobiographies.

    "Good book overall - believable? Maybe?"

    Many tout this as one of the best Mitch Rapp books yet but no other Rapp book compares to Memorial Day as a novel to get you thinking about its "believability".

    The final third of the book is much better than the first third and if I were not a Mitch Rapp fan, it doubt I would have made it through the first third of the book for a variety of reasons. Could Mitch Rapp go 'AWOL' and someone not find him?

    I needed a book for a long trip and this served the purpose and as I hit the final third of the book, I didn't want the trip to end as the story turned and twisted into something that made me think. "Could this happen?"

    I recommend the book but it doesn't compare to Memorial Day for its 'ability' to get me thinking, could this happen?

    Mitch Rapp once again did not disappoint. Would gave preferred a little different ending but the ending was a twist I did not see coming.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one I could not stop listening to and finished it in one day, could not put it down

    "Mitch Rapp = Awesome!!!!"
    What did you love best about Act of Treason?

    Keeps your attention from start to finish!


    What other book might you compare Act of Treason to and why?

    Vince Flynn has not written a "bad book"!!


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Great narration.

    "Absolutely fantastic"

    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.
