Separation Of Power (Mitch Rapp #5)


CIA superagent Mitch Rapp is back in action in Vince Flynn's high-velocity New York Times bestseller. 

Newly appointed CIA director Dr. Irene Kennedy is the target of an inside plot to destroy her and prematurely end the American President's term. 

To make matters worse, Saddam Hussein is close to entering the nuclear arms race — something Israel has vowed to stop. 

With the haunting specter of World War III looming, the President calls on his secret weapon: top counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp. 

But with only two weeks to take out the nukes, Rapp is up against a ticking clock — and impossible odds.

Rave Review For Separation Of Power

"...[a] sharply plotted thriller... Flynn knows his politicians and pits his characters against impossible odds with nonstop action and suspense." -- Publishers Weekly

"First-class political intrigue from a master storyteller." -- Booklist 

"Flynn has joined Tom Clancy and Jack Higgins as a master of the political/espionage thriller." -- The Deseret News (Salt Lake City, UT)

"Throw in some skulduggery inside the CIA, a lovely female assassin, and Mitch's angry girlfriend, NBC's White House reporter, and you've got a recipe for a fine thriller." -- The Providence Journal-Bulletin
