Publisher Comments:

CIA operative Mitch Rapp follows a trail of contract killers leading directly to the heart of our nation's capital in New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn's eighth explosive thriller.

It's a gorgeous autumn day in Georgetown. The Democratic candidates for president and vice president of the United States are dutifully glad-handing voters and the media outside a grand estate where a national security conference has just been held, bringing together the world's greatest minds to discuss the issues that are threatening the country. It's American politicking at its best. That's when all hell breaks loose.

When presidential candidate Josh Alexander's motorcade is ambushed by a group of terrorists, the nation is thrown into turmoil. Two weeks following the attack, Alexander is carried to victory by a sympathy vote, but his assailants have not been found. On the surface it appears to be the work of al-Qaeda, despite the tremendous job that the U.S. and her allies have done eliminating terrorist cells within the heart of America. While the FBI and the rest of the government begin scouring the world for jihadists, CIA director Irene Kennedy and Special Agent Skip McMahon are presented with classified information so toxic that they consider destroying it altogether, as it contains intelligence pointing to some of the most powerful players in Washington.

Enter Mitch Rapp, the one man reckless enough to follow the evidence to its explosive conclusion. His journey takes him through the shadowy world of contract killers, into the darkest corners of the globe, and eventually back to Washington, where the fragile pillars of power are shaken to their core.

Review:

"Tom Clancy fans who have not yet discovered bestseller Flynn (Consent to Kill) and his maverick, do-whatever-it-takes hero, CIA operative Mitch Rapp, will find this page-turner right up their alley. When an al-Qaeda–style bomb attack on the motorcade of the Democratic presidential candidate, Georgia governor Josh Alexander, in Washington, D.C., a month before the November election kills the candidate's wife and several Secret Service agents, Rapp uses all the tools at his disposal to investigate the claim of the now discredited head of the protective detail that a mysterious figure in a red baseball cap set off the fatal bomb. Rapp soon finds that the motive for the outrage may be personal rather than political. While the underlying plot elements require a great deal of suspended disbelief, Flynn will pull most readers along with his taut writing and plausible vision of the real work of the intelligence community. Author tour." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Flynn's latest (and best) novel featuring maverick CIA agent Mitch Rapp....Flynn's profile rises with the publication of each new novel, and there is no doubt that Act of Treason will bring him to even loftier heights." BookReporter.com

Review:

"[A] book whose propulsive, skulduggery-filled plot makes up for its clunky prose and almost hallucinogenically rose-tinted view of Pentagon activities. (Grade: B)" Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"Even though Act of Treason starts out fast and strong, many readers may find themselves losing that all-important suspension of disbelief halfway through, which could spell disaster for Flynn and his record on bestseller lists." Denver Post

Synopsis:

Promising an explosive conclusion, Act of Treason is the eighth thriller by New York Times bestselling author Flynn featuring the spine-tingling exploits of CIA operative Mitch Rapp.
