Description

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 protégé, 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.

Publishers Weekly Review

Oct 01, 2001 – A changing of the guard at the CIA attracts some corrupt politicos with eyes on the White House at the start of this sharply plotted thriller, a step up for popular writer Flynn (The Third Option, etc.). Unfortunately for the bad guys, upright CIA agent Dr. Irene Kennedy is tapped to replace her dead boss, foiling their illicit fund-raising plans. Corrupt politico number one, Sen. Hank Clark, enlists Irene's envious second to discredit her and the president. Clark and his cronies are also eager to deal with CIA special ops assassin Mitch Rapp, who's stuck on desk duty after nearly losing his life on a previous assignment and seems ripe to be taken out. Mitch accompanies his girlfriend, White House reporter Anna Rielly, to Italy, where he meets up with his former lover, freelance assassin Donatella Rahn. When Rahn is shot, Mitch uncovers a plot linked to the men behind the threats to Irene and the CIA. Meanwhile, reports surface that Saddam Hussein has acquired nuclear weapon components from North Koreans, who are assembling them in a factory buried beneath a Baghdad hospital. This calls for a gutsy mission, one that entails stopping Saddam while avoiding the PR nightmare that bombing a hospital would cause. Irene pulls Mitch into the plans to deal with Baghdad while she grapples with Congress. Flynn knows his politicians and pits his characters against impossible odds with nonstop action and suspense —thus distracting fans from all the clichés and mediocre prose—and a final fillip will keep them guessing as to Mitch's future in the series.

Customer Reviews

Too Much Fluff

My third read. Started with the first with Mitch. While the book helps build on the characters... There were too many "flash-backs" to the earlier books (almost a page--word for word) and repeats within the book.
Several "scenes" just close out without closure? Like, what happened?
Too many characters with compete names... Never to become significant.
I am satisfied with the purchase and the read. Several minor editorial errors; and introduction of terms that must be decoded within the context of the paragraph left me disappointed.
I finished this third book with the feeling that the author could have made these three books as one. Or, he started with the one story and divided into thirds using the fluff and flashbacks/inserts to pad. I finished with the feeling, Ludlam in his earlier books would have challenged the reader more and crafted his work better.
From the reviews, I've decided to proceed to the fourth Mitch book. Thanks to the reviews that support an "upgrade" in quality &
Meaningful content.

Another gripping Mitch Rapp thriller

Wow! That's all you need to know. Great story that pulls you in and won't let go.

Great Read

Vince Flynn does not disappoint! Great attention to detail. Story was filled with action. Must read. You won't be able to put it down.
