Act of treason
Vince Flynn
Adult Fiction FLYNN

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

CIA operative Mitch Rapp returns in another taut thriller. With the presidential elections close at hand, it looks a little iffy for Democratic candidates Josh Alexander and running mate Mark Ross, but when a bomb attack on their motorcade leaves Alexander's wife and numerous others dead, the sympathetic vote sweeps the two men to a bittersweet victory at the polls. At first the bombing looks to be the work of al-Qaeda, but evidence soon points to a source much closer to home. Schultz brings a comfortable presence to his reading. Having narrated several of the past Rapp adventures, he is on familiar ground, and it shows. His clear, crisp reading style fits perfectly, beat for beat, with Flynn's straightforward storytelling. His characterizations are distinct and well handled, giving Rapp just the right amount of gruffness, while at the same time providing each of the supporting characters with their own individual voices without using over-the-top accents or vocalizations,. Peter Michalos's fine abridgment keeps the story moving with no apparent sacrifice of character or plot. Simultaneous release with the Atria hardcover (Reviews, Sept. 4). (Nov.)

From Library Journal:

Flynn spins another tale involving counterterrorism expert Mitch Rapp and CIA chief Irene Kennedy. Mitch and Irene are apprehensive over the arrival of the new vice president, who was nearly killed in an assassination attempt prior to the election that killed the wife of the presidential candidate. The men easily win the election, but when Mitch apprehends the assassin, he learns how cold-blooded the new VP really is. With little time left before the inauguration, Mitch and Irene are desperate to find a way to prevent a travesty. Narrator George Guidall demonstrates why he is one of the industry's top readers; his ability to portray characters is remarkable, and his pacing, phrasing, and accents are superb. Another terrific listening experience. Most highly recommended.-Ray Vignovich, West Des Moines P.L. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
