Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Vince Flynn - “the best pure adrenaline-charged action writer out there today” (The Providence Journal) - puts Mitch Rapp in the crossfire as America’s enemies tighten their grip.

Returning from a covert mission, Mitch Rapp was publicly hailed by the president for his role in the fight against terrorism. After years of working in the shadows, Rapp was caught in the media spotlight - and marked for death by virtually every terrorist in the world. Now a CIA advisor, Rapp is ready to battle terror far from the front lines.

But when a Navy SEAL team in the Philippines is ambushed, all evidence points to a leak within the U.S. State Department. And a greater threat lurks - a ruthless assassin working for the most powerful men in the Middle East, who are bent on igniting a world war. With the world watching, Rapp must hold back the flames of Armageddon....

Take another thrill ride with Mitch Rapp.

©2003 Vince Flynn (P)2011 Simon & Schuster

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

    "Exciting read"

    Vince Flynn novel Executive Power excites and thrills again via the distinct and powerfully entertaining narration of George Guidall. I'm a top fan of the Mitch Rapp series! Loved it!

    "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.

    "Mitch Rapp Just Keeps Getting Better"

    I am well into the Mitch Rapp series and I really enjoyed this latest one. Mitch appears to have turned the corner into being one involved in planning as much as executing CIA projects. At times he appears to be everywhere at once and is more involved in the "Big Picture." He is not just one person carrying out unconnected tasks. However, while seeking out the "Bad Guys," the story makes you stop to think "Who are out Friends?" Although I am a strong supporter of the Israli cause, this book opened my eyes a little. In the past 10-15 years, I have come to realize that in some ways the US might be just as bad as some of the other nations. In this book I lsaw that Israel also may be just as political and out for their own interests at the expense of others. The author did an excellent job leading the listener through the winding halls of international intrigue, particularly when much of it occured on our own soil. Rapp and Kennedy have worked themselves into a very comfortable relationship full of respect and even Rapp's love life appears possible, despite his delicate job. I am still, however, waiting for the other shoe to drop.
    As an aside: two books ago, Rapps female friend's name was pronounced "Reel -ee,"with the accent on the first syllable. In the last book (with a different narrator), it was pronounced as "Ril -ee", with the accent still on the first syllable. In this book, with George Guidall narrating (my favorite narrator), it was pronounced as "Re-al-le" with the accent on the second syllable. I wish the narrators could all get together to agree on the correct pronounciation. Anyway, I am just starting "Memorial Day" and expect it to be just as good as the last book.

    "Not the best, but still good."

    I enjoyed the story although Mitch did not enter into the story line until much later than usual.

    Story
    "Compelling."
    What did you love best about Executive Power?

    I loved the United States triumph in stopping the destruction of a middle eastern country by terrorists who want peace only through violence.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was action packed which always keeps me listening.


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

    Guidall brings a powerful voice of anger when reading characters frustrated emotions.


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

    Based on all the action, and the way Flynn brings each chapter to a close with a cliff hanger, I would listen to this straight through if I had the time.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the personal conflict that Rapp has as a C I A employee. He grapples with still being an op in the field, and getting used to working in Washington will politicians that he does not always agree with. In the end, I am glad Rapp is still part of the action. This makes all of the novels in this series worth listening to.

    "Another Great Rapp Adventure "

    Two simultaneous adventures take place in this Mitch Rapp chronicle. In addition to a great story, the narrator did a fantastic job!

    After a few Mitch Rapp novels, that were good, but not great, the Mitch Rapp we have come to know and love is back... and how!
    Great characters, great story and impeccably presented by George Guidall, great to have him back.
    A must read!

    Story
    "could have been more exciting and believable"

    If you love Mitch, this is pretty good. There are several stories going on here, and we do get some action.

    BUT. Anna is a sniveling, pouting prom queen. She insists on knowing where Mitch is. Hello! When your hubby is Special Forces, you will never know where he is or when he will be back. And you don't ask. Period. Yes, I know, Mitch is supposed to have a desk-ier job now, but still he is the best, and sometimes the best is what is needed. You married him; don't expect him to give it all up. And there is no mention of her other than this. She should be writing furiously for the paper, and scooping other reporters, but no, I guess she was lighting candles at home in her negligee feeling sorry for herself.

    BUT. Do you really think a man in Mitch's position would be sitting in, or standing in the back of the Oval Office all the time? I don't claim to know how all this works, but it does not seem realistic that Mitch would be the one to question or tell certain people things. Literarily, he needed to be there so that WE could know what happened, and he could flex some muscles.

    BUT. Weak ending on the hostage family in the Philippines. They were never developed so that we believed they really existed.

    BUT. Weak ending on the John Doe / Omar situation, kind of anticlimactic since we were expecting a big Rapp-up. Three shots and an audio tape and it's over.

    The story keeps you listening the whole time. George Guidall is typical (wonderful). I wouldn't stop listening because of this one.
