Publisher's Summary

CIA superagent Mitch Rapp battles global terrorism in a high-octane follow-up to the New York Times best seller Separation of Power - another chillingly authentic adventure from the master of the political thriller.

Mitch Rapp's cover has been blown. After leading a team of commandos deep into Iraq to prevent Saddam Hussein from joining the nuclear arms race, he was publicly hailed by the president as the single most important person in the fight against terrorism.

As special advisor on counter terrorism to the CIA director, Rapp is ready to fight the war on terrorism from CIA headquarters rather than the front line. That is, until a platoon of Navy SEALs, sent to the Philippines to save an American family kidnapped by radical Islamic terrorists, is caught in a deadly ambush. The mission had been top secret - so who told the enemy? All evidence points to the State Department and the Philippine embassy. But a greater threat still lurks. An unknown assassin working closely with the highest powers in the Middle East is bent on igniting war. Now, with the world watching his every move, will Rapp be able to overcome this anonymous foe and once again keep the flames of war from raging?

Transporting us into an intriguing geopolitical puzzle full of deadly motives, covert operatives, and all the true-to-life insider detail we've come to expect from Vince Flynn, Executive Power is a high-flying story that delivers shattering suspense with the velocity of a 9mm bullet.

    "Undeveloped Plot"

    Vince Flynn writes great spy thrillers. His main character Mitch Rapp, is the man's man, with just enough of his feelings showing that you know he is human. I enjoy Vince's novels, with their plots that twist and turn, leaving you uncertain how the story will unfold. However, the publishers have decided not to put out all of his books in an unabridge version. Executive Power was a good story, but the telling of the story was so compressed, the reasons behind some of the characters actions weren't fully explained. It left me unsatisfied. I don't know if an unabridge version would make a difference, but based on experience with some of his unabridge novel, tells me it would. A good story, but I'd like to hear the unabridged version.

    "Abridged versions are useless"

    I really don't think the book can be fairly evaluated based on this abridgment (with its somewhat mediocre narrator). Apparently, those responsible for making the cuts have to remove the passages that provide the richness and lovely detail that Flynn typically provides. This makes the whole book two-dimensional and, amazingly, boring. I'm just listening to keep up with background for the next book, "Memorial Day," which is happily available in an unabridged version.

    "Undeveloped Plot"

    The previous reviewer is correct-the story is very "thin".
    Probably would have had more reviews if the srory had been better. Not up to Flynn's standard.

    "Shades of Team America: World Police"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I'd like to believe that those who work in the U.S. intelligence community are not as shallow and ignorant as the characters in this book. Complex character development would have helped.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Vince Flynn again?

    Perhaps. After I've recovered from this nasty experience.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The performance was good.


    Any additional comments?

    This book runs on characters that can best be described as ignorant, xenophobic rednecks-- and those are the good guys. Makes "Team America: World Police" seem politically correct. Is this what the author intended?
