My friend handed me two Vince Flynn books a year and a half ago saying that I'd like them I stared at the plot descriptions skeptically wondering how my friend could have confused me for an action book reader The closest I had come before was Dan Brown and I hadn't really liked the experience So when I finally started Act of Treason I only expected to read a hundred pages and then apologetically return them to the friend telling her that they weren't my thing But then I couldn't stop reading and found that I was completely enjoying myselfVince Flynn's perspective is 24 The West Wing so the capture and interrogation of terrorism suspects is complemented by Washington officials protesting possible illegal action Despite the protests of the White House super CIA agent Mitch Rapp is able to solve the mystery and exact justice for the culprits Along the way the ramifications of anti terrorism initiatives and corruption within Washington politicos are worth thinking about

SUMMARY Act of Treason

Act of TreasonCIA operative Mitch Rapp follows a trail of contract killers leading directly to the heart of our nation's capital in New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn's eighth explosive thriller It's a gorgeous autumn day in Georgetown The Democratic candidates for president and vice president of the United States are dutifully glad handing voters and the media outside a grand estate where a national security conference has just been held bringing together the world's greatest minds to discuss the issues that are threatening the country It's Amer. Sleazy politicians a surprise presidential election result and an investigation into that presidential election uestioning if it were manipulated with the help of Russians Sound familiar guess again this fictional novel was written in 2006 by Twin Cities native Vince Flynn Vince Flynn wrote a series of thirteen novels staring a fictional CIA agent name Mitch Rapp Flynn is a fascinating story himself as he forced himself to read challenging literary novels and write to overcome his difficulties with dyslexia He started with a self published novel which did well in the Twin Cities which in turn led to a traditional book deal for his Mitch Rapp series Several Mitch Rapp novels hit the New York Times bestseller list Flynn was also a consultant for the television series “24” Unfortunately he passed away in 2013 after a long battle with prostate cancer In 2016 the first Mitch Rapp movie “American Assassin” was release and grossed over 66 million worldwideWell this is my first Vince Flynn novel and while it took me a bit to get into it it eventually pulled me in and grabbed me until the last page The main character Mitch Rapp is a savvy shoot first – ask later American CIA version of James Bond He’s not afraid to skirt the law a bit to get a righteous outcome This novel feels a little too realistic with a couple of unscrupulous politicians caught up with shadowy contract killers The story is tight the action regular and stirring and the characters are well constructed It’s masculine action adventure for sure but its also smart and just plain fun An example of Flynn’s clever observations is that when someone is constantly late they are either idiot savants perfectionists or egomaniacs And the one to be most wary of is of course the third category Little remarks like that greatly increased my enjoyment of the story I wish Flynn were still around writing Mitch Rapp stories but at least I have twelve to readAn entertaining political thriller that highlights the dangers of power and betrayal but also finds hope that there are those that will stop at nothing for truth and justice
