I have yet to find any current author who can write a better action thriller than Vince Flynn. Mitch Rapp is a super-agent working for the CIA and trust me, he is not someone you want to mess with. Jack Bauer could even learn a thing or two from this guy. If you are guilty of any transgression or act of terrorism towards the United States and he learns about it, he will track his prey toward the ends of the earth so they can pay the price for their foolishness. Rapp has saved the United States and its presidency more times than you can count, but at great personal expense as seen in CONSENT TO KILL.

In ACT OF TREASON, Mitch is on the hunt for the man with the red Washington Nationals baseball cap. This man detonated a bomb during a political campaign, killing several people in the presidential candidate's motorcade including his wife and several Secret Service agents. Gavrilo Gazich is a most wanted man and there is a big bounty on his head – but there is more to him than meets the eye.

Rapp is already on the case searching throughout the world for this man until he finds him – and learns that there is more to the story than he was led to believe. CIA director Irene Kennedy is presented with some explosive evidence showing that the bombing was part of a bigger conspiracy. It is one that could destroy the nation were the truth ever to be revealed.

The good guys are easily discerned from the bad guys in this book and the reader knows that Mitch will do what he needs to do in order to make things right. You will cheer, you will laugh, and you might even cry because this particular novel is shorter than the other books in the series. If you are looking for a nice quick action novel, you need look no further. Vince Flynn and Mitch Rapp are not trying to pretend to be anybody else. They have a good working formula and they stick to it. If you are looking for a John Le Carré, then read John Le Carré.
