Finally a synopsis of Executive Power:
CIA superagent Mitch Rapp battles global terrorism in a high-octane follow-up to The New York Times bestselling Separation of Power -- another chillingly authentic adventure from the master of the political thriller.
Mitch Rapp's cover has been blown. After leading a team of commandos deep into Iraq to prevent Saddam Hussein from joining the nuclear arms race, he was publicly hailed by the president as the single most important person in the fight against terrorism. But after years of working covertly behind the scenes, Rapp now lives in the glare of the public spotlight, lauded by the nation and an easy target for virtually every terrorist from Jakarta to London.
As special advisor on counterterrorism to CIA director Dr. Irene Kennedy, Rapp is ready to fight the war on terrorism from CIA headquarters rather than the front line. That is, until a platoon of Navy SEALs, sent to the Philippines to save an American family kidnapped by radical Islamic terrorists, is caught in a deadly ambush. The mission had been top secret -- so who told the enemy? All evidence points to the State Department and the Philippine embassy. But a greater threat still lurks. An unknown assassin working closely with the highest powers in the Middle East is bent on igniting war. Now, with the world watching his every move, will Rapp be able to overcome this anonymous foe and once again keep the flames of war from raging?
Transporting us into an intriguing geopolitical puzzle full of deadly motives, covert operatives, and all the true-to-life insider detail we've come to expect from Vince Flynn, Executive Power is a high-flying story that delivers shattering suspense with the velocity of a 9mm bullet.

Vince Flynn is a must read for anyone. In this day and age no other writer even comes close to his insight and foresight (Saddam--North Korea--our own Govt.). I can only hope the best is yet to come.....

Have read all his books and can't wait for next month. I also read John Sanford and people are waiting for his new book which I was lucky enough to get a pre-release of. So all his loyal fans were asking what to read in the meantime. The suggestions where Crais, Child, Deaver, etc. I wrote in saying how could anyone not mention Vince Flynn.

Exellent reading!! I've read 'em all twice and look forward to the next one. Since discovering Vince Flynn, I'm finding it hard to stay awake reading other guys' works (Clancy, Ludlum, Demille, etc) for more than 2-3 pages at a time.
It's kind of a shame that after waiting so many months for the release of the new book, that I, like most loyal fans, will probably read it in about 2 days and once again be waiting for the next one!

If you've read all the books try the tapes. Same story but with narration it comes out differently than when reading.

Vince Flynn is the best author. I read all of his books in about a month. He is impossible to put down, I can't wait for his new book EXECUTIVE POWER. Are there any other authors that catch and hold your attention as well as Vince does with somewhat of the same type of read?

Have your read the author LEE CHILDS? He has a great character named Jack Reacher. I think there are 4 or 5 books in the series. Go to Barnes & Noble. com and put in the the authors name all the books will be listed. I also read all of John Sanford's Prey books there are about 13. Everyone is waiting for the new one coming out this month. He has a really funny, serious, loves women detective as the main character named Lucas Davenport. Hope this helps.
I just finished Executive Power. Great as always.

Have you read Matt Reilly? His 4 books, Contest, Temple, Ice Station and Area 7, are all great. There's a not a great amount of character development but it's plenty considering the action. He's the best action writer I've read, his scenes grip you so you can't put the book down even if you try. His new book is due out later this year. You can find his main page at http://www.matthewreilly.com/ and his message board is at http://www.thepresidian.net/.

was reading the New York Times at breakfast, turned the page and there was a full page, in color, ad for Executive Power. It brought a smile to my face, since I read the book last week and loved it. It is so what is happening now.

Hey folks...... New book Oct. 2005.

Crikey, just had a go at "Memorial Day" and loved it! But for a brief slow-down in the middle and some overly-simplistic morality, a near classic of the "intrigue/military/suspense" genre. I'll definitely be reading more Vince Flynn! Thanks Broker for the suggestion, awesome writer.

I have only read Term Limits and like it very much. Will do the rest very soon. A name I have not seen mentioned in the comments above is Alfred Coppel. He writes alot about Islam and his books, altho written several years ago, tell the story of the war on terrorism. I know you will like him. Now to get busy on the Flynn books.

Thanks Spooner, and welcome a board

Isn't Coppel a science fiction writer? Not that that's a bad thing.
>>By Just Jon (Saturday, 2 Jul 2005 19:03)
Yes Coppel has written some sci-fi which I haven't read. Very prolific writer. Still have several of the thrillers yet to go.
