Description

CIA director Thomas Stansfield is dead -- and many individuals in the nation's capital are pleased to hear. However, their happiness is short-lived because Stansfield's successor -- his protégé Dr. Irene Kennedy -- plans on pursuing Stansfield's goals -- a fact Stansfield's fiercest enemies refuse to accept.
Israel has discovered that Saddam Hussein is close to entering the nuclear arms race -- and they've vowed to stop the Iraqi madman before he can get his hands on the ultimate weapon. With the Middle East teetering on the precipice of chaos and devastation, the president of the United States is forced to act.
The commander in chief's secret weapon? None other than the CIA's top counterterroism operative, Mitch Rapp. With the haunting specter of World War III looming, Rapp races against time and impossible odds -- navigating the deadly alleys of Baghdad, tearing through the corruption-riddled streets of Washing ton, D.C., and taking drastic measures against anyone who gets in his way.
With action that sizzles and true-to-life insider detail, Separation of Power showcases New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn at his shell-shocking best.

  • (4/5)
    This is another solid book about CIA operator Mitch Rapp. Rapp along with his team of operators have to stop Hussein from building a nuke, and by the way he stills has to help fix things at home because a corrupt Senator is trying to his his boss (Kennedy) fired. I have enjoyed this series of books and am looking forward to one day Michael Bay or JJ Abrams creating the Rapp universe.
  • (3/5)
    Political thriller that doesn't age well. The cartoon characterizations of the central figures reflect the prevailing right wing paranoia prevalent prior to the actual invasion of Iraq. The book reads like an inside the security apparatus rationale for the actions that resulted in the disaster that became the Iraq occupation. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the action and the spy vs spy interplay.

    Separation of Power is a book full of mystery and intrigue. I like this book because it has different information added to your knowledge every page.

    Excellent. The best read yet of all the Mitch Rapp series.

    CIA director Thomas Stansfield is dead -- a fact many individuals in and around the nation's capital are pleased to hear. But their happiness proves to be short-lived once they learn that Stansfield's successor is the late director's close friend and protégé, Dr. Irene Kennedy. Her plan of action is to pursue the very goals Stansfield established -- something Stansfield's fiercest enemies don't want to hear. And something they refuse to accept.Meanwhile, Israel has discovered that Saddam Hussein is close to entering the nuclear arms race -- and they've vowed to stop the Iraqi madman before he can get his hands on the ultimate weapon. With the Middle East teetering on the precipice of chaos and devastation, the president of the United States is forced to act. The commander in chief's secret weapon? None other than the CIA's top counterterrorism operative, Mitch Rapp. But the window for action on this crucial mission is incredibly tight. Israel has given the United States only two weeks to take the nukes out. After that, they'll do whatever it takes to destroy the weapons themselves. With the haunting specter of World War III looming, Rapp races against time and impossible odds -- navigating the deadly alleys of Baghdad, tearing through the corruption-riddled streets of Washington, D.C., and taking drastic measures against anyone who gets in his way.

    I probably should have given this one better than 3 stars, but it wasn't quite good enough for 4, and I still refuse to make things more complicated for myself by giving half stars of any sort to any book.There are better spy novels, and better action novels, and better political novels. But this one is just fun. There's just enough detail to convince you that Flynn really knows what he's talking about without being so much that it slows things down. He's not trying to go down the dark path that le Carre did before him, but is trying to write a good action story with clear good guys and clear bad guys. In doing so, he probably exaggerates a bit, and his characters are sometimes weak, but they do have real motives and real emotions.This is one I wouldn't recommend to everyone, but if you like political thrillers, check it out.
