Description

CIA superagent Mitch Rapp is back in action in this high-velocity adventure from the master of the political thriller, Vince Flynn.
SEPARATION OF POWER
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.
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.

  • Insulting your intelligence

    I found this, my fifth read in the Rapp series, to be so redundant and lame that I am giving up on the rest of them. Flynn is apparently writing for the lowest common denominator--explaining and explaining again--that I am insulted. I'll stick with Child and Baldacci, thanks.

    The sad passing of Mr. Flynn prompted me to again read some of his thrillers. Even though I knew the outcome, my heart pounded as Mitch Rapp risked life and limb to save us all! Through Mitch, Mr. Flynn will truly be in our hearts and minds forever. May his wife and children find some comfort in their time of sorrow knowing how many of his fans out there are thinking of them in their thoughts and prayers.

  • Mitch Rapp at his best

    This book was one of the most tense and emotional I've read in the Rapp series. Mitch is at his best, deadliest, boldest, and yet the most vulnerable of his previous books. This is a crescendo of the previous three novels by Flynn and ends with a ruthless assassination that left a smile on my face and a laugh in my voice.
  • Another great book Vince!

    Nicely done! I had a hard timing putting this one down.
  • Boring

    Transfer of Power and The Third Option were pretty good books, however Separation of Power was very repetitive. Flynn kept repeating himself and repeating things written in the previous books. It seemed as though he was inserting these things to make the story a novel, rather than what it should have been, a 100 page short story. I don't think I will be buying any more Mitch Rapp books.
  • No Disappointment

    A little slow at times but Flynn doesn't disappoint when it comes to the action. Spent many late nights until I finished and now it's on to the next one.
