He had been in power for so long that he owned presidents, but now CIA Director Thomas Stansfeld is dead and much of DC celebrates. The festive mood changes to horror when the realization begins to surface that Stansfeld¿s top assistant, Dr. Irene Kennedy is his most likely replacement. Her opposition has set in motion powerful plans to wreck any permanent appointment of Kennedy.

However, Kennedy¿s biggest problem is that her star assassin Mitch Rapp wants out as soon as he completes his final mission. Soon Mitch learns that Iraq is closing in on nuclear weaponry that Saddam protects beneath a hospital cover. Mitch will lead the assault team on the facility knowing that if he fails the Israelis will follow and a wider war will ensue. In spite of the stakes, the extreme elements opposed to Kennedy getting the top CIA job including links to the Halls of Congress will do anything to make Mitch fail even if World War III occurs.

The follow up to THE THIRD OPTION, SEPARATION OF POWER, is a tremendous espionage thriller that never slows down for even a moment. The story line is action-packed and Mitch is what we need right now in Afghanistan even if he wants to retire. Though some of the actions of the anti-Kennedy group seem bizarre when weighed against the cost, many readers will look at real terrorist acts and think nothing much of the anti-Kennedy crowd, sad as that seems. Once again, Vince Flynn provides a strong espionage thriller that makes this author the prime option of choice for genre fans.

    WHAT IN THE WORLD!?

    Vince Flynn is a very good author and 'Seperation of Power' was very well writen. It was very hard to guess what was going to have next because, of the secondary sortyline that tied in with main storyline about three quaters through the book. It was truly exciting and suspenceful in a way that I can't explain it. But if you read it you will completely understand what I am talking about. If you are in the mood for a great read and a very good book read this one. I really can say I didn't like anything in the book. The reason for that is the author(Vince Flynn) incorperated everything I like in a book. The action was there in a good amount, the suspence too, and the drama. So its hard for me to knock this book and if you haven't read it PLEASE read it because YOU WILL LIKE IT!!

    Very good.

    Plot was excellent. Other than the fact too much time was spent re-introducing characters no complaints.

    A Little Far-fetched, but a Good Read

    Enjoyed the book- good read, with non-stop action. However, a couple of the events go too far beyond reality, even for this genre. Flynn's several anti-France comments are distracting and unnecessary to the story line.
