    Why are all the reviews about a spy novel? This is for Executive Power, an insanely packed 4 hour audiobook. I would recommend anyone reading it once a day for a month to really soak it in. At .8x

    Ousted as spy and possible an assassin by a mad Congressman, Mitch Rapp has to look over his shoulder and step into role he's not meant for, a desk jockey. Rapp has got a steady girl and a job he hates, but one she loves. Because he has been marked as a CIA operator Rapp is stuck behind a desk planning instead of doing the CIA's most secret missions. Well maybe. Again, fans of Flynn will enjoy the adventure, politics, and suspense in which he intertwines in his books.

    This is the first Vince Flynn novel I've read and will be the last. The book is full of cliches and stereotypes pandering to an American audience looking for a hero who sees every issue as black and white, has all the answers and is not afraid to act. Mitch Rapp is bigger than life just how Americans luv'em. He has been recently outed as a CIA operative and the whole world knows him as the ultimate terrorist hunter. Everyone he meets is in fearful awe of him. Unlike the terrorists he slays he is a killer with a conscience "Rapp had killed many times and could honestly say he never enjoyed it, or at the very least he'd never relished it. Yes, there'd been times where he'd felt just satisfaction in killing someone who deserved it, but that was about the extent of it." Oh and he is a great family man and American patriot. The plot was very good but handled it in a very simplistic manner. The Arabs; Saudi's, Iraqi's and Palestinian's are all bad guys. France and the Phillipines are unreliable allies. Terrorists flee to Canada after committing their attacks in the USA. Israel's tough stance towards the Arabs and specifically the Palestinians is supported by historical events. The events are all true; but, Flynn does not provide any historical events as to why the Arabs and the Palestinians hate Israel and Jews in general. He only states that there is an element in the Arab world which is totally bent on destoying the state of Israel. Flynn makes all the politicians look like weak kneed sycophants only trying to get the president re-elected. Mitch Rapp basically does as he pleases. He doesn't care who he insults, what rules or protocols he bypasses or what havoc he creates because everything he does is for the good of America. All Americans should be thankful that Mitch Rapp is ready and willing to do the dirty jobs that other Americans, non-military, are unwillingly or to afraid to do. Can't dispute his take on realpolitick but again it is pretty superficial. The timeline was unreal. Good ol'Mitch went from killing Philipine terrorists and saving an American family in a matter of 2 days to stopping a potential major middle eastern conflict and/or the creation of a Palestinian state 3 days later. Amazing maybe Flynn's next book could have Mitch actually solve the Mideast conflict, but give him a week. As I said earlier the plot was good and it kept me going if only to see how the book ended. Characters were all stereotypes. The book depicts how we all wish we could deal with terrorists and those who support them but in the real world and realpolitick it just can't be so.

    Excellent book for anyone who likes a good international terrorism thriller, well written and hard to put down.

    Of the previous Rapp novels, this was not a favorite. It seemed to take a long time for the plot to develop. There were multiple stories happening and even by the end, I don't think they all came together very well.

    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 U.S. State Department. And a greater threat still 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....

    One Can Only Hope Mitch Rapp is for RealA Navy SEAL Team is ambushed. The evidence points to a State Department leak. An assassin financed by one of the wealthiest men in the Middle East is eliminating obstacles to a Palestinian State.Mitch Rapp, an overt CIA agent, analyzes, faces and, eventually, eliminates the challenges. Vince Flynn is a master of suspense and one can only pray that Mitch Rapp has a counterpart somewhere in the U. S. government.

    Yet another awesome book by the master of the spy novel. Fantastic read as always. For my money Mitch Rapp is the greatest character ever written. Hands down
