Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
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 protege, 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.

About the author

Biography of Flynn, Vince

Vince Flynn was born in Saint Paul, Minnesota in 1966. He graduated from the University of St. Thomas and went to work as an account and sales marketing specialist for Kraft Foods. In 1990, he accepted an aviation candidate slot with the United States Marine Corps, but was medically disqualified before starting the program. He worked as a bartender while writing his first book, Term Limits, which after receiving numerous rejections he self-published.

It hit the New York Times bestseller list in paperback. He went on to write the Mitch Rapp series. He was a story consultant for the television series 24. He died after a long battle with prostate cancer on June 19, 2013 at the age of 47.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2004-03-01)

Flynn is quickly establishing himself as the Raymond Chandler of the political thriller. Although similar to the tales of Tom Clancy, Flynn's stunning efforts are remarkable for their efficient prose, exquisite plotting, and excruciating suspense. Beginning with his first novel, Term Limits, the author's characters are continued in his subsequent works. Separation of Power hinges on the politically charged appointment of Irene Kennedy as the head of the CIA, while her primary operative, Mitch Rapp, must penetrate prewar Baghdad and remove nuclear warheads from beneath a hospital.

Narrator Ken Kliban demonstrates a remarkable ability to portray diverse characters and replicate multiple accents. In Executive Power, Irene is now secure in her post at the CIA, and the war against terrorism has evolved into a multinational campaign pitting Islamic militants against Western diplomacy. Mitch, now a married consultant on counter-terrorism, must balance his position as a White House analyst and husband with his background as a clandestine super agent.

Veteran narrator George Guidall provides an entirely convincing performance; his timing and portrayal of characters are precise and thoroughly absorbing. While this is a journeyman effort by Guidall, Kliban's presentation is more impressive. Both works, however, are well done and strongly recommended for all libraries.
