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

    "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.

    Story
    "The first Mitch Rapp book written after 9/11/2001"

    Executive Power is Book 6 in the Mitch Rapp series but is Book 4 in the order the series was written and released. It was released during May 2003. This is the third time I listened to the audiobook after reading the hardcover when it was released released. (The audiobook was released in 2011.)m In Executive Power we see a fully confident Mitch Rapp dealing somewhat ineffectively with his journalist wife who he recently married. Rapp and Irene Kennedy, his CIA boss, come to realize that Anna Rielly requires that she know more about what her husband is doing. After being outed to the public by a US congressman as a CIA assassin at the end of Separation of Power, Rapp has a real desk job at CIA. He has issues adapting to his desk job and leaving the field work to others. He uses his new ability to influence the US president very effectively.

    Like all of Vince Flynn's novels Executive Power is complex with several things, sometimes seemingly unrelated, happening at the same time. This adds to the realism.

    Executive Power is also the first Rapp series audiobook in order written which was narrated by George Guidall. Fortunately Guidall narrates all of the more recent audiobooks in the Mitch Rapp series.

    "Rapp is Exciting as Always Here"

    I love this series. Every Rapp novel has an intricate and believable plot that must be stopped by patriotic and politically incorrect Mitch Rapp. Sounds a bit formulaic when I write it, but these books are riveting.

    "Not the best Rapp book"
    What did you love best about Executive Power?

    Of course the exploits of Iron Man Rapp were fun to follow.<br/><br/>I have to admit, my favorite scene was the short one in which Irene Kennedy, thinking of Anna Rapp, thought to herself that Mitch could have done better. I've been thinking that, myself, ever since she came into Mitch's life, with her pouting and her whining and demands.


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

    That would be "plots", plural, and though I wouldn't say I was on the edge of my seat they were interesting. They were a little predictable, though, as they developed.


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

    This was not Guidall's best effort. I read another review that touched upon his pronunciation of Anna Rielly's last name. I have to admit, I always thought it was pronounced "Riley" without paying too much attention to the i-before-e configuration. I probably jumped to a conclusion based on her background as the daughter and sister of Chicago cops and thought she was Irish. Anyway, without Vince Flynn to tell us what he had in mind we just have to guess.<br/><br/>I would have more faith in Guidall's research into how to pronounce the name if he hadn't mangled the name of a famous sniper rifle so badly. I am a woman with no military and little firearm experience, but even I know the Barrett .50 caliber sniper rifle is not a "Bar-ette". I stubbed my toe on that little mental speed bump, as it took the image of a lethal weapon right into Barbie-land.
