In the fourth audiobook in the New York Times best-selling series, Marine sniper Kyle Swanson finds himself in the sights of a man he once idolized - a true American hero turned traitor.
Swanson and his beautiful girlfriend, CIA agent Lauren Carson, are on a mission in Pakistan when their world is turned inside out. Kyle is captured and thrown in prison. Lauren is accused of being a double agent. The one person they trust to help is the man who sent them on the black operation - Jim Hall, a legendary CIA agent, Kyle's sniper mentor, and Lauren's boss and former lover. But Hall has gone rogue. He is selling America's innermost secrets to a ruthless Pakistani warlord who wants to mold al-Qaeda into a legitimate political party and secure a nuclear arsenal.
For Jim Hall, his former protégé, Swanson, is the final obstacle. Success or failure pivots on whether Swanson can stop the old friend who trained him to be a shooter. From the streets of Washington to the Bavarian Alps, the two snipers stalk each other in a deadly hunt that has only one possible outcome.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
An Act of Treason is my first Jack Coughlin novel, bur it certainly will not be my last. Everyone who has an appreciation for great thrillers should read this book.
All four books in this series keep you in suspense and leave you wanting more. The realism is incredible and the main character is not impervious to injuries and capture like many other series' characters.
I hope this storyline continues with many more books. Like the Mitch Rapp series, I'm hooked.
I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with their purchase of this novel.
This is the best book of the series to date. The characters come alive, the story line is exciting, the human compassion (a new addition) is inserted in a great way. The consequences of action are shown graphically through the story, the villains are portrayed very well, and their brutality will catch you off guard.
Really enjoyed this one ... More to the book than just another terrorist book!
First, the story line teaser from the jacket isn't accurate, but then what else is new? As with the previous novels in this series we see the unflappable Swanson always thinking moves ahead, he is a talented survivor. There are interesting twists, surprises and the characters aren't cliche. The pace is fast making it difficult to stop listening because you want to hear what happens next. Totally enjoyable action series with good story lines and characters. Luke Daniels does a wonderful job narrating.
What can you say when it only gets better and better with each book and reading. Start at the beginning and get each one have a time they will keep you glued the reading was wonderful the story great the suspense is unreal
I am a small business owner, writer and frequent traveler. Audio books are my constant companions
This story is only slightly more predictable that the alphabet bit still enjoyable. Has to be a girl. Girl has to show up the guy in guy stuff. Girl has to get captured. Mentor goes rogue. Student kills mentor....but it is still enjoyable. The performance is much better this time with an improved reading of USMC terms and times i.e. 0630 is never said as Oh-Six-thirty for a Marine. Time uses numbers. Zero is a number. Zero-Six-Thirty is a time. Marines never spell. We can't. STU-3 phone is a "Stew-3" not a S-T-U-3. Glad to see this is corrected in this reading. On to the next one which includes a girl sniper.....check the feminism appeasement box.
The first two books were great, book 3 was a major disappointment. Book 4 is back to the same great story telling of books 1 and 2.
Tell us about yourself!
Yes, the story kept you listening and not wanting to stop.
To some of Vince Flynn's books
Yes it was
