It’s been a while since I read Vince Flynn. Not that I don’t like his Mitch Rapp series. I really do, but I had read five or six in a row and decided to take a break. In the meantime, my husband kept reading and got three books ahead of me. I kept seeing the stack getting bigger and finally grabbed the next one in line and began.
Knowing ahead of time that Rapp will have to be the savior isn’t a negative. It is, in fact, what keeps readers coming back. In Act of Treason, Flynn doesn’t let us down. We race along with Rapp, worry for him, cheer for him, and wonder sometimes why he doesn’t tell his handler to find someone else. But that’s the kind of man he is. He does what others won’t. He’s what keeps the country safe. And he doesn’t disappoint his fans.
If you want a thriller with political intrigue and lots of action, I recommend Act of Treason by Vince Flynn.
FTC Disclaimer: My husband loaned this to me (and it was a loan since he wants it back so he can keep the whole series and loan it to a friend). I believe he bought it with a gift card I got for being a Chair at the Texas Book Festival. I think they got the cards from Barnes & Noble. So I guess if you’re going to track down the original source for this book, it would be one of the head guys at B&N.
