Comments Executive Power

  • Paul O'Neill

    Excellent, best one so far!! If you enjoyed the tv show, 24, then you'll love this. One of my favourite series, Flynn never fails to disappoint.

  • Dave Schumaker

    Sometimes, I'm not sure why I keep reading these books. It's basically a guy's version of a romance novel. Spies! Bad guys! Action! Cheesy dialog! It's a literary version of the television show 24.That said, any story involving Mitch Rapp is a page turner, no matter how poorly written or how much the author's disdain for things like the UN, diplomacy, and liberal universities seep through the story.Break down:+ 4 stars for mostly gripping story- 1 star for a totally lame way to off the antagonis [...]

  • Richard

    6.5/10This was a disappointing entry into the stellar series in my opinion. There were three main plot elements and as it transpired there wasn't a great deal to link them in the end.You can't fault Vince Flynn's ability to add a good bit of action/adrenaline sequence in which is what we got with a hostage rescue mission in the Philippines but there was no real need for this in the greater scheme of things. It's almost like the main plot wasn't long enough or filled with enough testosterone for [...]

  • Ashish Iyer

    Seemed to be shorter than other Mitch Rapp books but had all of the elements you come to expect for this series. No real complaints but I didn't really feel "wowed" at the end of it. I wouldn't say I was disappointed though. All in all it was a good read.

  • Fred

    Number 6 in the chronological order of the Mitch Rapp series, Executive Power, was another good read from author Vince Flynn. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the previous 5 Mitch Rapp books, however, this story was somewhat slower than the others. Since Mitch's cover was blown in the previous book, Separation of Powers, Flynn sends Mitch's character in another direction. It appears that Mitch's life is now more administrative and husbandly that ever before. He is desperately trying to leave his [...]

    THE UNIONS “Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.”- Napoleon. Welcome to the second story arc of the Mitch Rapp saga. I like to call this one the "matrimony arc", due to it spanning Mr Rapp's marriage. Don't worry though. White picket fences aren't for the war on terror's blunt instrument, and the three acts that make up this part of the series features some of the more severe threats Rapp encounters. Back in the day, before Al Quaeda and Daesh made the Middle East a consta [...]

  • ChopinFC

    Imagine: going to the movies and not being able to eat popcorn; or ordering a burger and french fries and not having ketchup available or even going to the beach and not being able to swim in the ocean!This is how frustrating this book felt to me! This is the sixth installation of Mitch Rapp's adventure, you know the super agent from the CIA who is a leader in covert operations, a martial arts expert, who takes pleasure in killing terrorists and enemies of the state.The previous reiterations, es [...]

  • karl

    This is about the 3rd or 4th CIA, special ops, our stud hero is "Rapp", reads like believeable current events, fiction novel by Vince Flynn that I have read. I love his stuff, but maybe my Sunday Times friends would not stoop this low. It's exciting, there are two stories being developed at the same time, and those two stories meet near the end in a dramatic way. Flynn is from the Twin Cities. You can tell he probably is a fan of Dick Cheney, and not a fan of p.c. Prius-driving folks. Flynn thro [...]

  • William

    We learn linguistically by 'pushing the envelope' absorbing a better word, but not by dumbing down a word's meaning to the level of colloquial misuse. :>decimate means to reduce by 10% not annihilation as used in the bookI don't like Anna Reilly. The character of Mitchell Rapp, as I know him, would not place himself in that position. She is very strong willed reporter. I wouldn't see a nature biologist picking up a coral snake barehanded because they admire it's beauty.I like to listen to aud [...]

  • ElaineY

    REVIEW OF 2ND LISTEN; SEPT 19, 2017This time EP was a 5-star listen from the start until the final lap. I felt Flynn dropped the ball at the end and I had to take away a star. Two stars the first time I listened to this, four stars this time round. The first time I listened to this I didn't know where Flynn was going with the dual arcs - one featuring David aka Jabril Khatabi and the other, Mitch Rapp, of course. These two arcs do not come together until towards the end of the book and it took a [...]

  • Garlan ✌

    Just your standard candy from Flynn. Another quick-paced, action-packed thriller that feels relevant in today's society.

  • Linda Munro

    Every time I ordered this book from the library it would arrive with several other 7-day books and I was never able to complete the book before it had to be back. This time, as soon as I got the book, I sat and read it.The Mitch Rapp series are full of adventure, terror and page turners from the start; no wonder there is always a waiting list for these Vince Flynn books!While all books in the series make the reader believe they are actually reading a case from a current newspaper account; this b [...]

  • The Cats Mother

    6th in the Mitch Rapp series, if you include the two prequel books. This one has Mitch travelling to the Philippines to rescue an American family kidnapped by terrorists, while a Palestinian assassin is plotting to make the UN vote for statehood. This is the first book of the series set after 9/11 but it is only referred to in passing, which seems odd when read now, but it is over a decade old. There's the usual mix of action, intrigue and politics, and we get to see a more human side of Rapp - [...]

  • Benjamin Thomas

    This one didn't seem quite up to Vince Flynn's standards although I am having trouble putting my finger on exactly why. It might be because it deals a lot with the Israel/Palenstine political situation which isn't my favorite. Or it might be because there are really two separate stories here, two novellas really, that only minimally tie-in together.And Mitch Rapp's wife is really starting to annoy me.

  • Jilrene ♥

    4.5 starsWell. The ending was a bit anticlimactic. However, that isn't a bad thing. Sometimes, the unexpected happens.

  • D.R.

    It was bound to happen. Mitch Rapp gets married in "Executive Power," the sixth book in Vince Flynn’s series featuring the hard-hitting CIA agent, Mitch Rapp. Although Rapp promises his wife Anna that he’ll stay out of harm’s way, his marriage has little impact on the counterintelligence agent’s MO. In a matter of days after their honeymoon, Mitch is fighting rebels in the jungles of the Philippines, side by side with his SEAL buddies, rescuing a kidnapped American family and taking down [...]

  • Mieke Schepens

    Je wordt meteen in het verhaal getrokken door de prettige manier van schrijven van deze auteur. Korte zinnen en geen moeilijke woorden. Hierdoor leest het boek als een trein.Het zijn eigenlijk twee verhalen in één boek. De hoofdpersoon Mitch Rapp kan zijn hartje ophalen als oplosser van de problemen die hij voorgeschoteld krijgt.Navy Seals, CIA en Geheime dienst zijn volop aanwezig in deze spannende actie-thriller.Bovendien is Mitch pas getrouwd en Anna, zijn vrouw is niet bijzonder blij met z [...]

  • Jeanne

    There's a lot going on in this story, but the various story lines converge at the end. Full of action and suspense, paired with a hero you can't help but root for, all add up to a story that was a great listen on audio CD. Good story for my first read/listen for this author; made even better by a great narrator, George Guidall! Ratings bump because of the narrator -- 8 out of 10.

  • Mr. Gottshalk

    Well, I have never read the series before this year, and I believe I am now a Mitch Rapp fan. Although this novel reads like two stories in one, it was filled with entertaining characters in a fast-paced narrative. I like how the author uses characters both with and against each other, and the chapters are just long enough to keep on turning pages. I recommended it!

  • Shawn

    Overall, an exciting thriller. I liked what Flynn did with the two simultaneous story lines early on, but ultimately I wish they were better integrated. The plot and ending is a bit far-fetched, not impossible just not all that plausible. But that's what one would expect from this genre.

  • Winter Sophia Rose

    Action Packed, Edge Of Your Seat Read!!! I Loved It!!!

  • Clay

    Boy, do I love Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series. These novels are always so cathartic for me in this modern world of massive bureaucracies gone mad. Flynn will expertly build this disastrous tension throughout the novel as things get worse and worse for our heroes and then finish it all off with some of the most satisfying conclusions I've ever read. It's so much fun to read these books. If, like me, you don't find many redeeming qualities in lifetime politicians, self-important bureaucrats and e [...]

  • Speesh

    So, why all the titles with Power in them? The third is Transfer of Power, number five is Separation of Power, number six, Executive Power. I wondered at one point if it was something to do with parts of the US constitution relating to the office of President, but I’m not sure. I don’t know the US constitution all that well. I don’t know it at all, actually. Well, apart from the amendment about guns law was so that people out in the wilds (as all US was at the time), were allowed to keep a [...]

  • Robin

    The author did something a little different in this, the fourth Mitch Rapp installment, compared to the others. He started two disparate storylines, each with its own cast of characters, ended one, and then proceeded into a third plotline that finally made the connection back to the other open line. Though the "short" story about a hostage rescue in the Philippines was both intense and entertaining, it was superfluous. I actually finished the book wondering if maybe I imagined that whole sequenc [...]

  • Douglas Barrow

    Superb story telling.A lone Palestinian terrorist has big plans to bring about the creation of a Palestinian state. With the help of a wealthy Saudi prince he puts his grand plans in motion.Meanwhile a team of US Navy SEALs are on a mission to rescue an American family taken captive in the Philippines by terrorists. But their mission is compromisedThis book is a page turner of the first order and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • Aildiin

    This is a book that gives me mixed feelings.There are two different plots that are not connected and a lot of time is spent building up the story and then things get resolved somewhat quickly and easily. Too easily for my tasteAnd then when you think back about the plot of the bad guys, it doesn't make really sense from their point of view to have proceeded that way

  • Rupesh Goenka

    The plot of the book can be divided into two different parts, one starting with the rescue of American family held hostage in Philippine & the other revolving around American involvement in the conflict between Arabs & Israelis about a separate Palestinian statehood. AVERAGE POLITICAL THRILLER.

  • Susan

    I'm not sure I could ever tire of Mitch Rapp, assassin working for the US Government or his boss, Irene Kennedy. I am, however, already tired of his wife who first appeared in the last book. Oh well. Otherwise, this series continues to delight from the first word to the last.

  • Jim A

    A reread for me.
