    "A great wow!"

    Great stories (more than one here), good character development, unexpected twists, and I - a Navy veteran - was reading this during the time Ben Laden was found. A description in the book must have been right on for how the Navy Seal team exited the helicopters during the raid on Bin Laden's compound. Will I read more of this author? Yep, and did I say the reader could read the newspaper backwards and would be worth listening to?

    "Story and narrator rock!"
    What made the experience of listening to Executive Power the most enjoyable?

    Couple Vince Flynn's exciting story and with George Guidall narrating and you have a hit!


    What other book might you compare Executive Power to and why?

    This is the first Mitch Rapp story so I have nothing to compare it to, however, I will purchase others!!!


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

    YES! I have read Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire series. George Guidall is always superb and never ever disappointing!!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Do assassins ever retire?


    Any additional comments?

    A must read!

    "the world of international intrigue"

    I have really enjoyed reading this book. It makes you realize how much political considerations influence the life and death situations that our country faces every day. Mr, Fynn seems to have a firm grip on reality even though our super hero Mitch Rapp is a little too much like superman, he is believable. I don't think the left wing radicals are too happy with the way the deomcrats are treated in this book, but I loved it.

    "Fast paced thriller(s)"

    This is one of Vince Flynn's earlier works and makes the reader remember that Flynn wasn't always obsessed with torture and knew how to tell a story without an overly obvious political message. Actually, Executive Power is two stories in one book. Maybe someone found the link between the two stories but I didn't. But both are good on their own and both have Mitch Rapp as the hero. CIA Diector Irene Kennedy plays a stronger role in this book and Mitch gets married. Anna, his new wife, is tougher than all the bad guys put together. Well worth your credit and your time.

    5 stars - books that I will listen to again and again. 4 stars - books that I might listen to again someday. 3 stars - books that I probably won't listen to again. 2 stars - books that I know I will never listen to again. 1 star - books that I should have never listened to in the first place.

    Story
    "A Fast Paced, Political/Anti-Terrorism Thriller!"

    After reading everything written by Tom Clancy, Daniel Silva, Brad Thor, David Baldacci, Robert Ludlum, Frederick Forsyth and Jeffery Archer - I found this audible book and decided to give Vince Flynn a try. Wow! I was hooked immediately. Okay, I am biased. Seeing that I have served in the military, I probably have a different point of view than the average civilian. So, if you are a left wing, progressive, hand wringing individual who truly wants to do so very much to save the world while doing absolutely nothing or the kind of person who must follow the "rules" at all cost - you will NOT enjoy this book. However, if you are like me and believe that terrorism is a REAL threat, that torture is a viable OPTION in order to save lives and that killing the bad guys is an acceptable SOLUTION - read Vince Flynn's books and dream on.

    "Executive Power" by Vince Flynn is the fourth book in his series about the USA's top counter-terrorism agent, Mitch Rapp. The story starts out pretty basic, an American family vacationing in the Philippines is kidnapped by the terrorist group Abu Sayyaf. Of course, the US government is furious and Filipino government says they are doing their best to find the American family but in reality the highest member of the Filipino military, is being paid off by Abu Sayyaf. Thus, the story speeds up quickly and it is very hard to stop listening to. There are so many PLAUSIBLE twists and turns that this book will keep you on the edge of your seat. By the way, this is the book where Mitch Rapp is shot in the butt!

    What I love most of Vince Flynn's books is how he always seems to work in meddling, mealy mouthed, government officials who (sometimes accidentally, many times purposely) screw up the mission plan. The other aspect of Vince Flynn's books that always draws me in is that the hero Mitch Rapp often works in conjunction with the Navy SEALs and that he doesn't always play by the rules. Mitch Rapp always gets the job done and it's a pretty dirty job.

    Pure, entertaining, action packed, fast paced fiction. I highly recommend this book when you want to read to escape. To escape into a world where the terrorists are the bad guys and the good guys do whatever it takes to kill them.

    Oh! I almost forgot. George Guidall IS the voice of Mitch Rapp. He truly brings Mitch Rapp to life. I do hope that Audible never changes the narrator on these books, they just wouldn't be the same to listen to.

    A five star listen because I know I will listen to this book again. Highly Recommended.

    "Awesome Book!!"

    Mitch Rapp is arguably one of the most riveting characters and Vince Flynn continues to do an amazing job with him. George Guidall is so awesome as the narrator that I don't think I can listen to a Mitch Rapp book that he does not narrate--he's that good!!

    I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
