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.

    "Not What I expected"

    I thought the characters were unlikeable and had no real personalities. I was expecting more.

    "I was expecting more"

    I hate to be the one negative guy here but I was really disappointed by this book. The plot seemed predictable and the characters were too stereotypical and flat. The guy reading the book made it worse with the different voices he used for each character. I was expecting something on par with Tom Clancy and was disappointed. The author did a good job of writing to the Jack Bauer shoot em in the knee cap crowd. So if that’s you get the book.

    "Way too much profane language"

    While the story was still good as far as Vince Flynn quality, there was way too much profanity compared to his others. Was it really necessary? No.

    "Too many swear words"

    I tried to get into this book but I couldn't make it even halfway before giving up because of all the profanity.

    "Very dull"

    I generally enjoy Flynn's work and have read/listend to the entire series. This book however, was dull, boring and predictable. I'm very sorry I wasted a credit on it.
