    "No remotely as good as later works"

    Flynn's earlier books are not nearly as good as his later ones and this is a perfect example. The plot was a little weak and basically split between two unrelated story lines. The narration was just as good as the later books. George Guidall does an outstanding job.

    "Good narration and ever timely storyline"

    suspenseful with good detail and realistic characters. Flynn has a keen sense of the difference between politicians and spin doctors and the people who must deal with the real world situations.

    Story
    "Action and Suspense Right Until The End"


    Someone or some country is not telling the truth about events happening in Washington DC.

    Who can be believed? The Israelis, the USA's best and most loyal operatives? Are they acting in a trustworthy way? Not really.

    Now it is time to find out what the assassin "David" is up to next. Mitch Rapp [a black ops assassin] onto the case. Rapp takes a few flights overseas to see if he can find the mole and/or do away with him.

    Once again, former CIA operative most be trusted, even though or especially since he is taking out some of the most notorious terrorists. Will he succeed this time?

    Notes: Strong language & descriptions of violence

    This would be rated R on the film scale

    Stars: five stars across the board.


    Vince Flynn was the master of writing, the counter-terrorism, thriller. I've yet to find an author that even comes close.

    "Another really good Vince Flynn book"

    This is a series that I am working my way through, although initially not in the correct order, that I can always rely on for an enjoyable listen. This book was no exception. A good listen that kept me interested through out. Yes the books follow a formula but it is a formula that works for me. Although sometimes I wish there was more variety to the endings.

    "Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp is unsurpassed"
    If you could sum up Executive Power in three words, what would they be?

    Superb story & narration


    What did you like best about this story?

    Flynn's Mitch Rapp series is head and shoulders above everything else in this genre.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    Guidall is among the top 3 best narrators in the business.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    As with all the other in the Rapp series yes.


    Any additional comments?

    If you haven't for some reason listened to this series, please start from the beginning. This is the second time I've listened to this series from beginning to the most recent release. Never disappointed especially after Guidall comes on-board.

    Story
    "Same plot?"

    All his novels seems same plot. All the villains are Muslim fundamentalists. I guess that is the easiest story to write and sell in the current scenario. Also Ralf being so "famous", I doubt how come no other hit man kills him? In reality if he become so famous, I think he is a dead man.

    "What a difference a Narrator makes!"
    What made the experience of listening to Executive Power the most enjoyable?

    Narrator is fantastic....makes all the difference.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Tone, characterizations, and understanding of the story. He brings it to life!
