Executive Power

by Vince Flynn

Pocket Books | May 25, 2010 | Mass Market Paperbound

Executive Power is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
#1 New York Times bestselling 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 US 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…

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ran Out Of Steam CIA field agent Mitch Rapp receives public acknowledgement by the president for his role in the fight against terrorism. The spotlight blows his cover as a covert operator making him a target for eradication by terrorist. Rapp is forced to take an office job in an advisory position behind the lines. When a Navy Seal team is ambushed on a top-secret mission in the Philippines, it is suspected that a leak came from the State Department or in the diplomatic corps. At the same time another problem develops in the Middle East. One of their most powerful man and a ruthless assassin are composing a master plan to ensure that the Palestinians will get the land that they feel they are entitled to. With the world probing into every move, will Rapp be able to overcome all obstacles and keep the flames of war from raging? This is a fast paced political thriller that ran out of steam towards the end. The two plots are at the extreme limit of credibility, nevertheless quite clever. Although I have yet to figure out what the two have to do with one another. This book touches many of the relevant issues regarding the allowable limits of government confronted with terrorist threats. I was disappointed in the lack of charm and warmth portrayed by the main characters this time. Nevertheless I enjoyed reading this book and I am looking forward to the sequel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "Absolutely Gripping" Having read all of Vince Flynn's novels, Executive Power stands tall amongst a most prestigious collection of suspence/intrigue entries penned by Flynn. Eagerly awaiting my shipment of "Consent to Kill"

Read from the Book

Chapter One Anna Rielly drifted in and out of sleep, the warm sun enveloping her in a hazy dream. Her bronzed skin glistened with a mixture of sweat and sunscreen. A slight afternoon breeze floated in off the ocean. It had been the perfect week. Nothing but food, sun, sex and sleep. The ideal honeymoon. A small resort on a remote Caribbean island with their own secluded cabana, gravity pool and beach. Total privacy, no TV, no phones, no pagers, just the two of them. She opened her eyes a touch and looked down at her wedding ring. She couldn''t help but smile. She was like a schoolgirl again. It was a perfect diamond set in an elegant platinum Tiffany setting. Not too big, not too small, just right. Most important, though, it was from the right man. The man of her dreams. She was now officially Mrs. Anna Rapp. He had been a little surprised that she''d taken his name without so much as a word of debate. She was a feminist, after all, with definite liberal leanings, but she could also be an old-fashioned romantic. She could think of no other man she respected more. It was an honor to share his name and she wanted the world to know that they were now a family. In addition, she could also be pragmatic. She had no desire to one day see her grandchildren running around with four last names. Professionally though, she would keep her maiden name. As the White House correspondent for NBC she already had name recognition and a solid career. It was a good compromise and Mitch didn''t ob
