Let's look into the future. Could false terrorist attacks also change the course of history? Many historians believe that Adolf Hitler showed that it could by helping stage an attack on the Reichstag (the German parliamentary building) in 1933. The Nazis used that event to sweep away the rest of the opposition to their upcoming dictatorship over Germany.
Vince Flynn takes on this topic by looking at what a desperate U.S. presidential campaign might do in the waning weeks before an election that looks unwinable. You'll be chilled and fascinated by what he develops. Let's hope this isn't a vision of 2008.
The book opens as a deadly attack on the presidential campaign is launched. We quickly get a sense that not all is right . . . and are soon pulled into the story of how this event occurred . . . and for what reasons.
There's also a cliffhanger element here. Mitch Rapp once again leads a "take no unnecessary prisoners" investigation on behalf of the CIA and his faithful leader, Irene Kennedy, knowing that the new administration will probably dismiss both Kennedy and Rapp. But Mitch is his usual self-guided missile and operates on Mitch Rapp time while the politicians dance around looking for advantages.
The book's highest moments are, as usual, those where Mitch goes into action. Vince Flynn has a wonderful ability to stage and elaborate on high action sequences.Read more ›
Based again around the CIA operative Mitch Rapp the future presidents wife is assasinated in washington in what was thought to be a botch attempt at possible future president & vice president, but as Mitch Rapp closes in on the trigger man is everthing as it seems will Mitch Rapp & director of CIA Kennedy find out the truth before its too late???? I guess you will have to buy the book to find out !!!! its worth it. Brillant fiction which could so easily be true.
Act of Treason, the new Mitch Rapp novel, takes advantage of this situation to effectively restart and refresh the franchise. This is definitely a book that is about new beginnings and laying down new plot threads. Beginning with a terrorist attack on a US presidential candidate's motorcade and then jumping forward to the week prior to the same candidate's inaugaration as the new President of the USA, it is all about starting again. Mitch Rapp is back in the field and struggling to deal with his recent bereavement (mostly by bottling up his emotions in a typical Rapp fashion). The old Presidential administration is on the way out and so, as it appears likely when the book starts, is the head of the CIA and Rapp's ally and ultimate boss Eileen Kennedy. A new President and VP are on their way; and they are not big fans of either Kennedy or Rapp.
And lurking behind all this change is a conspiracy that reaches into the highest reaches of the American political world, and unless Rapp & Kennedy can uncover the truth and bring those behind it to justice the US is will be in danger of a threat from within.
So far, so business as usual for Mitch Rapp. Except that in this case the conspiracy is really nothing more than a device used by Flynn.Read more ›
