D for jihadists CIA director Irene Kennedy and Special Agent Skip McMahon are presented with classified information so toxic that they consider destroying it altogether as it contains intelligence pointing to some of the most powerful players in WashingtonEnter Mitch Rapp the one man reckless enough to follow the evidence to its explosive conclusion His journey takes him through the shadowy world of contract killers into the darkest corners of the globe and eventually back to Washington where the fragile pillars of power are shaken to their co I enjoy reading a thriller once in a while and have wanted to give Vince Flynn a shot mainly because he is from my hometown in Minnesota Act of Treason turned out to be a good choice for this genre There's no uestion that Flynn has done his homework As I was reading Act of Treason I felt that I was getting a genuine sneak peak into the US intel community and the tricky business they face daily something which fascinates me Flynn's writing style remains true to this particular class of books very action based and to the point no flowery prose or introspective character building here He did an excellent job of setting up a solid plot and building his characters around it remaining focused and on target throughout Each chapter fleshed out and of the puzzle adding just the right mix of information and intrigue as the pages turned I was thankful that he didn't include any silly love story or gratuitous sex it just isn't meaningful to this type of a story line I typically would prefer to become attached to the protagonist of any book I read but I must confess that it was difficult with this one Mitch Rapp was simply too cold and calculating But then again I have to chalk that up to probably being true to life another score for Mr Flynn for creating an accurate character depiction Although I've never personally known any I imagine that most real life intel people simply can't afford to be warm emotional or even multi dimensional to any great degree All in all I thought Act of Treason was a well written thriller I have another one of Vince Flynn's books and look forward to reading that one as well

Act of TreasonIcan politicking at its best That's when all hell breaks looseWhen presidential candidate Josh Alexander's motorcade is ambushed by a group of terrorists the nation is thrown into turmoil Two weeks following the attack Alexander is carried to victory by a sympathy vote but his assailants have not been found On the surface it appears to be the work of al aeda despite the tremendous job that the US and her allies have done eliminating terrorist cells within the heart of America While the FBI and the rest of the government begin scouring the worl 710Another decent read in the series but it didn’t meet my high expectations overall The bar has been set uite high by this series and whilst nothing really changes here too much from the usual outline it falls a bit flat overall and is really let down by the endingThe story starts with a terrorist exploding a bomb killing the wife of a candidate for the presidency and some other less important people but not all is as it seems This leads to some of the usual exploring and hunting by the protagonist Mitch Rapp and some internal politicking in the CIA to try and work out if there is than first thoughtOf course there is but it’s too easily signposted along the way There weren’t many twists or turns here and what we’ve seen before was done again From the off you knew the overall outline and where things would go This doesn’t mean it was a bad read it was enjoyable and a palette cleanser after the tomb of A Dance with Dragons The thing that really got my goat was the ending I was panicking that it would be a cliffhanger ending as no real resolution was upcoming and there was a handful of pages left What can be done view spoilerGive the man a gun and let him get bang banging and then also regurgitate an ending from another book where poison is put into someone’s drink to kill them easily hide spoiler
