Vince Flynn has not let his readers down one bit with Act of Treason. It features Mitch Rapp, master spy, and all the characters that go along with Mitch’s vocation. The story opens in a motorcade of presidential candidates before election. Terror threats had been made so this caravan was being watched very closely by all involved security. But, as sometimes occurs, all the prevention taken against terrorism was not enough for this motorcade.
Because of the sympathy from this attack, Josh Alexander is elected as the new president. But there is no sign or evidence that would lead to the culprits which caused CIA Director, Irene Kennedy, to search farther, a search that would involve reckless, but getting results, Mitch Rapp. Rapp got results any way he had to; torture, injuring, psychologically—well, you get the type of a man Mitch Rapp is even though his fellow agents fight his methods and many times doubt the results. Mitch is not dumb. He has his contacts around the world in virtually every nation, even through various government factions that exist within many governments.
The search takes Mitch from the United States to many areas of our world and describes how he delves into a man’s, or woman’s background as well as their present life to find the information he needs. This search stretches his patience thin as he finds those involved in the terrorist action of the motorcade and their plans for more killing, some of which just to keep some quiet! Between the attack and the election of President Josh Alexander and Vice-President Mark Ross, all government agencies went into action full force to find the terrorists. Various agencies fought their counterparts so they could find the source or sources of this terrible deed during which President elect Alexander’s wife was killed.
Have I gotten you interested yet? If not, you might as well find a dull book to curl up in bed with! I will not spoil any of the many plots in this book other than to say Act of Treason is non-stop with surprises and actions. Many twists and turns occur up to the very end. Reading this book makes me hungry for Vince Flynn’s next book.
