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 found a way to destroy Mitch Rapp"

    I can't believe that this was allowed to go to market. Someone must have listened to it and realized that the narration was simply awful. If I hadn't enjoyed some of Vince Flynn's other books so much I would never be inclined to listen to another one after slight through this one; the narration is absolutely terrible.
    The story line is typical Mitch Rapp, but that is why I buy them. This narrator, however, destroyed every character in the book.
    Please make a redo with a descent narrator and I may re-buy the book and give it a chance.
    Ken Kliban, I'm sport but you need a new line of work. I don't blame you as much as I do the producers who should know better than to release anything this poorly performed
    Just awful!!!!!

    "Narration...Not Good...Story..not as strong."
    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    This is my fourth Rapp book for me..loved the the first three. Story line wasn't the strongest. Not your typical Rapp series..Ok, I get it..he is in love and she is in love with him..but how much dedication and story telling and description does one need..enough already... we get it. This didn't keep my interest as much as the first 3. Here's hoping the 5th book is a gem.


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

    OMG, horrible. The first three books and two different narrators. Both were excellent. Sorry, but Ken did not do justice to Rapp. Sounded whinny...females voices were also horrible. Accents were decent.

    "Good story but"

    I'm a fan of this author and listened to 90 percent of his books. This one predates most that I listened to. The narrator Jewish accent sounds very German which is annoying and just no where as good as the present guy they have doing all the authors books now. The dialogue between Rapp and his girlfriend goes adnausim but the subject and story are good once you get past the afore mentioned.

    "Not the best"

    This store dragged on with too much detail about his girl friend. This could have been better with less detail.

    "Narrative causes frustration"

    Narrator over acts every sentence so it goes from too loud to whispering in every sentence. He acts every character as angry when the author didn't write them all that way. It's distracting and frustrating. I enjoyed the story very much. I just wish I'd read the hard copy instead.

    "Terrible Narration"

    I have enjoyed this series but I can't finish this one because the narrator took a whole different direction with every character. It is so bad I had to stop listening and skipped to the next one. Can I get a refund??

    "Great story marred by narrator"

    Unfortunately Kliban destroyed every character in this novel- everyone became a whining sniveling irritation. He even made Rapp sound like he was whining! Mitch Rapp would never whine!! I only listened to this so I could stay on track for Vince Flynn's excellent series about Mitch Rapp. Please redo this and any other Mitch Rapp story by having a true artist narrate it- meaning George Guidall!

    "The Narrator was not the correct man for this book"
    What disappointed you about Separation of Power?

    The Narrator! He would be great for other books but not for Mitch Rapp!! He made him sound like a bitchy little man, not the bad ass Mitch is!


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

    Not on any book with a similar store and or main character.


    Any additional comments?

    Please do not ask Ken to read any more Mitch Rapp books!!
