Publisher's Summary

Newly appointed CIA director Dr. Irene Kennedy is the target of an inside plot to destroy her and prematurely end the American President's term. To make matters worse, Saddam Hussein is close to entering the nuclear arms race - something Israel has vowed to stop. With the haunting specter of World War III looming, the president calls on his secret weapon: top counter-terrorism operative Mitch Rapp. But with only two weeks to take out the nukes, Rapp is up against a ticking clock - and impossible odds.

Take another thrill ride with Mitch Rapp.

©2002 Vince Flynn (P)2011 Simon & Schuster

    "narrator murdered this book"

    I love Vince Flynn "Mitch Rapp", and have listened to all the other books, but realized I missed this one. The narrator is really horrible.

    "Another great entry"
    What made the experience of listening to Separation of Power the most enjoyable?

    Flynn's excellent story telling.


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

    Become completely wrapped up (no pun intended) in story.


    What didn’t you like about Ken Kliban’s performance?

    Boring voice - almost stopped listening


    Any additional comments?

    Love this series.

    Story
    "Worst Narrator I have EVER heard"
    What disappointed you about Separation of Power?

    The narrator was so bad I could not follow or even adequately assess the book's merits. He made the characters horrible, his dialogue was screaming. I turned it off a dozen times and finally turned it off for good. I was so disappointed with this narrator, I was beside myself and thought I should get a refund.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ken Kliban’s performances?

    Never.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible should never sell another book narrated by this person.

    "Well written, horribly narrated."
    What did you love best about Separation of Power?

    The story was great. Vince Flynn is great.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ken Kliban?

    George Guidall. Ken Kliban made Rapp seam whiny.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall it was well written. I enjoyed the story just not the telling of it.

    What didn’t you like about Ken Kliban’s performance?

    His voice. His over theatrical reading of the story...absolutely horrible. Not much else to say on the subject without truly being an a--hole.

    "Story great, Narrator was sub-standard!"

    I read all the reviews prior to buying this latest in the series of Mitch Rapp before I purchased. I bought, as I wanted to not miss any character development. The story was fine, exciting, classic Vince Flynn, however the reviews were correct that the narrator was very substandard. He made Mitch Rapp's voice whinny and high pitched, not the cool, calm low voice of previous narrators. Ready to purchase the next in the series and just hope and Ken Kliban doesn't narrate any future books!

    "Love the story, not so much the performance"

    Love the Mitch Rapp series. However, had difficulty with some parts of the story due to the performance of the reader.

    What did you like best about Separation of Power? What did you like least?

    I liked the story, the introduction of Donatella, and the Epilogue.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Ken Kliban some how turned Mitch Rapp into a whiner. Mitch is not a screamer, his performance seemed to make Mitch weak.

    "Worst narration ever!"

    Complete failure by everyone involved, they took a great story and fan and made me hate having to listen to this story. How anyone involved could of signed off on this train wreck is beyond me. The guy changed the girlfriends last name from the previous books, then mispronounced several words through out the book! Seriously that was literally your only job! So glad that whining idiot is not on any more books or I'd be done with this series. Audible and everyone needs to do better in the future and should seriously consider re doing this audio book!
