I know I'm waaaay late to the party (like 13 years), but I just read this and really enjoyed it.
Good stuff, check it out if you haven't yet.

So good, I've read it twice.

Now only if I knew some disgruntled Space Shuttle Door Gunners.

It's a damn good book. Probably my favorite Vince Flynn Novel. It may be 13 years old but the plot is very relevant to what is going on with our current political situation.

My thoughts exactly. The guys were pissed with a 5 trillion debt. How many guys would they bump off with a 14 trillion one.

I started reading the next one in order "Transfer of Power" so far, so good.

I just finished all of his books up to American Assassin at the end of last year. All of the books are really good. Some develop a little faster than others and some of them are two part series that don't end until the next book. I'm going to pickup American Assassin in the next week or so and try and finish off the series. Then I'll be stuck waiting until later in the year when a new one will probably come out.

I'm in the middle of AA & its good.
You get to see Stanley in good form. He about gets his ass handed to him by Rapp but... its pretty good.
Right now I'm at the part where Rapp meets the Swiss grandaughter.

I recently started reading the Rapp series but not in order and I'm getting lost.
I've looked around but I can't find a list of the order they were writen in. I would love to start over from the begining if somebody can clue me in.

Swiss grandaughter made that book! If they ever bring Rapp to the big screen, I hope they start with this one!

And Term Limits was an amazing book. One thing that makes it stand out is that it shows the size of Flynn's balls. This first book, depending
on how you look at it, is mostly unrelated to the others in the series. But on the other hand, the Rapp stories wouldn't be there if it hadn't been
for what happened in Term Limits. Very big gamble on the part of Flynn. It was like he knew that his novels were going to catch on.

BTW, I found out about Flynn from an interview on Glen Beck. I listened to the struggle that he went through being dyslexic (I have no idea how to
spell that, so forgive me) and now he's a huge novelist. I decided that I was going to read a few of his books, no matter how bad they sucked.
Now, I'm very happy that I did, because Flynn is now my favorite author!

The only problem I have with the series is that the books all start to resemble each other far too much. Mitch tortures terrorists, politicians try to take him down, Mitch bitches about politicians and rebels, doing it his own eay, something bad happens to politicians, Mitch saves the day and the politician has a change of heart. End of story. That's pretty much each of the last 3 or 4 books. I still read the series at least twice a year, but that's the gist.

Like a season of "24" lol. How many moles can you have in CTU? How many dirty politicians set you up? How many times does your dumb ass daughter get in trouble? How many times does Jack get close only to miss the bad guys again? I feel ya

I enjoyed the entire Flynn series. And I just started watching "24' on Netflix. I always thought it seemed like a goofy show so I never paid it any attention. Was I ever wrong!!

I just got a friend and his wife hooked on "24". They ripped through season 1 and are about half way through 2. As much as I loved the show, it just got to the point where you knew what was going to happen. There's gonna be a mole, some one's going to get a presidential pardon, Jack's gonna torture someone, etc. etc.




I got the 4th Vince Flynn book, "Seperation of Power" the other day. I haven't started yet though. I had to take a break so I didn't get all "Rapp'ed" up in the series. I just finished "The Infection" by Craig DiLouie which wasn't bad.

A movie deal is in the works for Consent to Kill and other books after that. My fear is they'll screw the movies up like the Tom Clancy books they made into movies.

I've read that too but its been a slow process. Hopefully its not going to fall through the cracks.

Just finished it too. Thats what I was thinking, Term Limits 2 needs to come out as a hint to our leaders now.

I have read every one of his books except Transfer of Power, thats next. Flynn is the man.

I haven't seen anyone mention it here, but Vince Flynn is fighting a pretty serious case of prostate cancer these days. He is said to be working on another book, but if he manages to beat this cancer he may just decide to hang up writing and enjoy life for a bit. I hope not, I really enjoy his series.

If you like Vince Flynn you should also check out the Brad Thor books. They are a very similar style.

Well...........I just finished "Consent to Kill". Wow. Really, really good. Since January 26th when I downloaded "Term Limits" I've read the first seven of his books and I'm having a hard time stopping. I've thrown a few others in to break it up, but I keep coming back to Vince Flynn. And now I'm probably gonna go download "Act of Treason". Damn B&N nook! Makes it so easy to get another book I can't stop. In the amount of time it took me to type this the new book is ready to read.
bowhuntr09  [Team Member]

I think Consent to Kill was one of the better ones. I too am currently reading Act of Treason. I'm too early into it to know how it compares.

Damn. I had not heard that. That sucks to hear, I hope he recovers.

Well, I polished off "Act of Treason" the other day. Seemed a little slow in the beginning, but the end made it all worth it. I started reading a non-Flynn book after I finished it, and I just can't get in to it. I feel like a crackhead lol. I'm gonna have to finish this book fast and get back to Rappville soon.

Don't forget the Brad Thor books. Also the trilogy by Matt Bracken (Enemies, Foreign and Domestic) is a good read. Lights Out is a must read also if you haven't read it.

Been almost a month since I posted in here so......

Act of Treason, done, great!
Protect and Defend, done, great!
Extreme Measures, just finished it, great!



and I just downloaded Pursuit of Honor, guess I'll post in a few days how it was but I'm guessing.....Great!
I might pick up American Assassin in paper form since the e-book is more money. Doesn't make any sense does it?

Am I the only one just flabbergasted that none of these are movies yet?

I mean sure, some of them like "term limits" couldn't be done for legal reasons but others like the one where Mitch meets Anna could easily be a blockbuster.
Hulka73  [Team Member]
5/5/2011 9:29:00 PM
yeah, except Term Limits would be the best movie lol





I'm finally reading the last one, American Assassin.

according to Vince Flynn's website, he's got a new one coming out in October. Better get started.
