The #1 New York Times bestselling author of American Assassin—now a major motion picture—delivers “first-class political intrigue from a master storyteller” (Booklist) in this electrifying Mitch Rapp thriller.

The confirmation of Dr. Irene Kennedy as the CIA’s new director explodes into chaos when it becomes clear there is a deadly inside plot to destroy her and prematurely end her term. Meanwhile, as a dangerous world leader gains power in the nuclear arms race, Israel forces the president’s hand with a chilling ultimatum.

With the specter of World War III looming, the president calls on top counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp, who scours the alleys of Baghdad and the avenues of Washington for America’s enemies. But with only two weeks to take out the nukes, Rapp is up against a ticking clock and impossible odds in this “sharply plotted thriller” (Publishers Weekly).

    Terrible. Did Vince Flynn write this one? Don’t waste your $10🙄
  • Insulting your intelligence

    By ThrillReader
    I found this, my fifth read in the Rapp series, to be so redundant and lame that I am giving up on the rest of them. Flynn is apparently writing for the lowest common denominator--explaining and explaining again--that I am insulted. I'll stick with Child and Baldacci, thanks.

    The sad passing of Mr. Flynn prompted me to again read some of his thrillers. Even though I knew the outcome, my heart pounded as Mitch Rapp risked life and limb to save us all! Through Mitch, Mr. Flynn will truly be in our hearts and minds forever. May his wife and children find some comfort in their time of sorrow knowing how many of his fans out there are thinking of them in their thoughts and prayers.

    My deepest sympathies and condolences to Mr. Flynn's family. Vince was a great author, educator, and story teller. He will be truly missed by all. This book is excellent, as are all of his titles in this series. I am very much looking forward to reading them all.

  • Mitch Rapp at his best

    By wmbMD
    This book was one of the most tense and emotional I've read in the Rapp series. Mitch is at his best, deadliest, boldest, and yet the most vulnerable of his previous books. This is a crescendo of the previous three novels by Flynn and ends with a ruthless assassination that left a smile on my face and a laugh in my voice.
  • Another great book Vince!

    By Richard Cabesa
    Nicely done! I had a hard timing putting this one down.
  • Boring

    By Royalcee
    Transfer of Power and The Third Option were pretty good books, however Separation of Power was very repetitive. Flynn kept repeating himself and repeating things written in the previous books. It seemed as though he was inserting these things to make the story a novel, rather than what it should have been, a 100 page short story. I don't think I will be buying any more Mitch Rapp books.
