Act Of Treason

by Vince Flynn

Pocket Books | August 28, 2007 | Mass Market Paperbound

Act Of Treason is rated 4 out of 5 by 4.
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 this explosive thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn.

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 contract killers on an explosive mission that leads back to the heart of our nation’s capital…and the inner sanctum of the Oval Office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Treachery Who knew politics could be so exciting? A great story with ruthless criminals, devious politicians, dedicated AND corrupt Secret Service agents, and a super CIA operative who uncovers a conspiracy. Another one of those books where you keep telling yourself, just one more chapter, and I'll go to bed...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Typical Political Intrigue The nation is thrown into turmoil when Presidential candidate Josh Alexander’s motorcade is ambushed and the car is rocked by a car bomb killing Alexander’s wife and many others. On the surface it appears to be the work of jihads terrorists. The FBI and CIA are hot on the case. The CIA director is presented with classified information pointing to some of the most powerful players in Washington. Mitch Rapp is the only man reckless enough to get down to the truth. His mission leads him eventually back to the heart of the Nation’s capital and to the Oval Office…….. The writing is as fast-paced and as dramatic as ever. The plot is the typical political intrigue found in Flynn’s previous books, nevertheless quite satisfying. The book’s climatic moments are when Mitch goes into action, the author knows how to stage elaborate action sequences and ends the story in a very controversial way. Mitch Rapp’s role is intriguing and cleverly created. The additions of new characters add to the suspense. Once again Flynn has created a novel hard to put down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great book, but not his best This wasn't vince flynn's best book, but it was still great. It had a good mix of action and political intrigue. I started reading when I went to bed at 10:00pm and was unable to put it down, I finished it by 4:30am. The story was well thought out, and left you wondering how the characters were going to deal with such a powerful foe. I just wish there had been a little more mystery involved, you found out who all was involved in the attack fairly early in the novel.

Read from the Book

1 WASHINGTON, DC JANUARY Irene Kennedy looked out at the white landscape from her seventh-floor office. Three fresh inches of snow had fallen overnight. The capital had a majestic winter wonderland feel to it when it snowed. It tended to be the kind of wet, heavy snow that coated every branch, statue, and park bench. The city looked frozen in time, and in a sense it was. A lame-duck president occupied 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and the president – elect was one week away from taking his oath of office. Traditionally, the only business that got done the week before the inauguration was the business of pardons. Lawyers, lobbyists, and big-money players lined up to ask the president to forgive someone for a crime they had committed, or been accused of committing. Politics had gotten so rough that sometimes just being a friend of the president could bring about the unwanted attention of a special prosecutor. With that attention also came a mountain of legal bills. It was quickly becoming a tradition for outgoing presidents to wave a magic wand and make these legal problems go away. Pardons could also be about bricks and mortar. A new presidential library needed to be built, and they were not cheap. With this president, however, it was mostly about setting things right. This should have been on Kennedy’s mind, but it wasn’t. As director of the Central Intelligence Agency she should have been lobbying for a blanket pardon herself, but her mind was occupied with the here and no
