Editorial Reviews:

The fallout from a horrific Washington explosion has just begun -- and so has CIA superagent Mitch Rapp's hunt for a killer with a personal agenda.

In the final weeks of a fierce presidential campaign, a motorcade carrying candidate Josh Alexander is shattered by a car bomb. Soon after the attack, Alexander is carried to victory by a sympathy vote, but his assailants have not been found. When CIA director Irene Kennedy and Special Agent Skip McMahon receive damaging intelligence on Washington's most powerful players, they call on Mitch Rapp -- the one man reckless enough to unravel a global network of contractkillers on an explosive mission that leads back to the heart of our nation's capital...and the inner sanctum of the Oval Office.

Summary: Rapp Attack!
Comment: While this was only by second foray into Vince Flynn's universe (I tend to read more historical fiction), I loved it and couldn't put it down from the first paragraph. "Act of Treason" is indeed incredibly fast-paced, timely and relvant (considering the upcoming elections, terrorism, etc) and the character of Mitch Rapp fully defined and heroically intriguing. I have to agree with some other reivewers that the ending was somewhat abrupt and flat. However, taken as a whole, I loved the novel and highly recommend it for readers interested in fast-paced political espionage, or simply a quick, fun, adventurous read!

Summary: Fascinating as always
Comment: Big Ludlum fan turned to Vince Flynn. This is a fascinating, fast paced political thriller that is extremely well-written. His stories are fiction but certainly based on a great deal of reality. A master storyteller with a great attention to accuracy and detail.

Summary: You have GOT to be kidding.
Comment: (Warning to conservatives with no sense of humor: this review contains satirical material and irony, however bald and slimy. Get over yourselves. And yes, I did read it!)

This wet dream for the right wing is just plain silly. Another Good Guy with a name that sounds like a cough. He's so tough, he's even tougher than that hot female secret service agent who whips all the NORMAL secret service wimpy guys in martial arts. Now, that's tough!

The bad guys are Democrats, one of which had the philandering wife of his running mate rubbed out (good riddance -- she's as bad as that woman who messed around with Newt Gingrich! Oh, wait -- he divorced his wife and married that woman!). This Dem is so unbelievably nefarious that he leaks secrets (Just like that . . . that . . . that treasonous JERK who leaked CIA agent Valerie Plame's identity to that liberal commie at CNN) to the incredibly biased New York Times (almost as bad as that pinko outfit Fox News that reported on Obama's energy plan that urges people to save energy by keeping their tires full of air, then immediately after the story advertised how to get an "Obama's goofy energy plan" tire gauge for a $25 donation to the Republicans! Alert!! Media bias!!)!!!

Fortunately for the free world, our hero manages to convince the American people that torture is OK, having put together a really convincing Power Point presentation that his boss at the CIA shows on TV. After that, he's free to just kill most of the rest of the bad guys, you know, just kind of walk up and shoot them. Woo hoo! America rocks! And he's a good shot, too! Kind of wish we'd done that to that evil nefarious guy who spread anthrax around after 9/11, what was his name, Steve Hatfill -- no, wait, he didn't do it! Shoot! Or wait, DON'T shoot!

Don't read this. This is a ridiculous book. Read John LeCarre instead -- oh, wait, Liberals aren't supposed to read LeCarre, so only read him if you're a Conservative. OK?

Summary: Not the best Flynn novel, but still pretty good!!
Comment: This book seems a little less dramatic. Perhaps because politicians are a target of terrorists? Harvesting the fruits of bad labors if you ask me. Otherwise, a truly enjoyable book. The storyline is just a little less punchy.

Summary: Fynn's Rapp Wins the Day Again
Comment: Vince Flynn pens another thriller starring Mitch Rapp, something of a superhero type of CIA clandestine agent. In this case, Rapp and his crew take down international financiers, corrupt politicians and other movers and shakers. The story is stimulating and is a page-turner, even though it has a predictable course from begining to end. Everything seems to work out a bit too smoothly for Rapp who does it all with ease. This is an entertaining book but lacks the element of suprise or mystery.
