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

    "My parrot would narrate better"

    The narrator, Ken, did such a bad job, he ruined the book. Everybody sounds the same. And they sound bad, really bad. Rather get the paper book and read it yourself.

    "Paybacks are hell"

    The three women in Mitch's life are great contrast the schemer, the emotionally supercharged girlfriend, and the deadly ex lover. Really entertaining book ... Never a dull moment try this one even if you don't read the others... If you like adventure you will be happy

    "Too long before action."

    Over half the book spent rehashing past books or back stories.
    The narrator tried to be to dramatic.
    Not one of the best.

    "Awful narration!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I don't write many reviews. Only when a book is particularly spectacular or particularly awful do I take the time. Well, this is one of those times. If I didn't thoroughly enjoy the Mitch Rapp series so much, I would have quit on this one after the first 10 minutes. The narrator is horrendous. Everyone sounds the same. Everyone is shrill. If this guy narrates any others, I'll be skipping them regardless of how much I love Mitch Rapp!


    How could the performance have been better?

    Get the old narrator or a better new one!

    "Hmm"
    How could the performance have been better?

    At first I was NOT a fan of him for this book. As it went on, it wasn't as bad. He did make Rapp sound like a total jerk but I got over that.

    It was interesting that he said Anna's last name as "Riley" ad opposed to "Reely" as the other narrator. I think he got it right!


    Any additional comments?

    Great series! If you can get over the changes of narrators you'll be fine. It's very interesting!!

    "Should have listened to the reviews."
    What would have made Separation of Power better?

    A decent narrator


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

    Absolutely NOT!!!!


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

    The story was good as are most Vince Flynn books.


    Any additional comments?

    The just has to be the WORST voice I have ever heard on an Audible book. I will make a note to avoid any thing he reads.

    "Bad performance"

    Too much shouting! The previous books in the series are much better at capturing Rapps stance and misdemeanor.

    "Tough one to get through"

    The book had merit. The challenge was the narration was a little weak. The plot was run on a emotional and non-tactically balanced. Hope the next one is better.

    "Great book but the narrator could have been better"

    Justice prevails once again. Good suspense. Some interesting twists and deceit. Looking forward to the next book.
