This was an interesting story about corruption. The novel shows how far some people who are power hungry will go. The characters were well written. Mitch Rapp doesn't put up with crap from anybody even in his own government. This story is no exception. Even now you wonder does he still go to far?
Another great one by Vince Flynn.. Not as many twists as Memorial Day but a great read none the less.. If you've enjoyed his other books, you'll enjoy this one.. Rapp & Kennedy are classic in this one!
Indeed, Vince Flynn is "the king of high-concept political intrigue". And in this book, we see first hand to what lengths some politicians will go to, to achieve their goals. But, when Mitch Rapp gets involved, he uncovers their plots and Rapp never hesitates to deliver the justice that he deems necessary for their crimes.
Mitch Rapp, CIA assassin, is a character who has undergone many changes throughout his development in this series of books by Vince Flynn. In Act of Treason Mitch remains a main character, but unlike some other books in the series, this time the world does not revolve around him.
This is a well conceived story, plausible today, with political players who are unlikely to change any time soon. This book shows that Vince Flynn is learning to add more political intrigue into a story line that still includes plenty of action.
I recommend this book as a comfortable and easy reading action/thriller.
This is the first Vince Flynn book that I have read and it had me right from page one. Mitch Rapp is Harry Callahan and Jason Bourne rolled into one. He is a one-man enforcer. I enjoyed this very much.
I really love this entire series. If you start reading this make sure to google which order to read them in -- you can find this on the web -- the numbers that the publisher uses are just in order of being published.

I also own a personal book collection that i love and treasure very much. The Mitch Rapp series is proudly displayed in hardcover among them. I recommend this book to everyone who loves a good book. You will be hooked, after reading this book. Definitely 5 star's.
Two weeks before the election presidential candidate Josh Alexander's motorcade is decimated by a terrorist bomb. Alexander survives the attack, although members of his entourage are not so lucky. It appears to be the work of al-Qaeda. But then CIA director Irene Kennedy is presented with classifed information so toxic that she considers destroying it altogether. Instead she summons Mitch Rapp, the one man reckless enough to follow the evidence to its explosive conclusion. Rapp pursues his unseen enemy through the darkest corners of the globe - until finally, back in Washington, the truly shocking truth behind the attempted assassination is revealed, and the fragile pillars of power are shaken to the core.
