This is my review of the Book Separation of Power by Vince Flynn.
Evidently one of my friends had looked at my reviews as I had read my first Vince Flynn book a few months ago, and ended the review saying that “if I see another Vince Flynn book I will read it”, as they have given me three new Vince Flynn books to read.Well I have now read another book.
This book was set in time before the book mentioned above, and is probably the start of the series about Mitch Rapp.
The book is different though to normal action thrillers. Yes Mitch was given a task to do – get some parts of a nuclear bomb behind enemy lines. But that was just the sub plot.
The main plot of the book was all about Political double crossing, deceit and murder in the corridors of power in America. It does seem ironic to a non American, that the whole process of government and enquiry/hearings into appointments is meant to stop corruption, but the main thrust of the book is how this process is being subverted on two fronts. One to avoid public scrutiny and the other to use it as a weapon of embarrassment, ultimately against the President, as it is the president who makes the choice of person for the Office being considered.
Of course the other interest in the book was that as it was written in 2001, Saddam had not been conquered, and his “Weapons of Mass Destruction” were perceived as a real threat, which fictional characters in books can try to destroy.
An enjoyable read - this was book 47 week 32 fiction 44 (13 on audio) non fiction 3
