This is my review of the book Act of Treason by Vince Flynn, which I have read recently.
It was interesting to contrast this book, which is all about life in America and American politics, to that of a fictitious Britain as described by C J Sansom in Dominion. In both cases the use of disposing of the opposition by killing them off is the norm. It is just that in this book by Vince - it is meant to be loosely based on real life, so it does make one question how often the idea of disposing of ones opponents really does happen, and is not just a fictitious idea.
Still getting back to the review of the book, there are two weeks to go before the presidential election, and sadly one of the potential candidates motorcade is ambushed by a terrorist bomb. Several people are killed, but not the candidate, who is then carried to victory by a sympathy vote.
Who planted the bomb, on the surface it seemed to be al-Qaeda, but then the CIA is given evidence that calls this all into question?
Super hero Mitch Rapp, America's top counter-terrorism expert is asked to solve the mystery, and it must be done before the new president is sworn in.
It is an enjoyable easy read that romps along at a good pace. This was book 2 week 1 – fiction 2 (0 on audio) non fiction 0
