Plot Summary

In a boat in the Philippine Sea, in violation of international law, Lieutenant Devolis and his Navy SEALs check their equipment. As soon as they land on the beach, they will have a two mile hike through the jungle. The eight men left the Mark IV in a rubber boat, unaware that their mission had already been compromised. Thus begins the exciting spy thriller, Executive Power, by Vince Flynn.

Mitch Rapp is a person who never wanted to be in the media spotlight. He is a covert operative for the Central Intelligence Agency and the best counter terrorism agent they have. But his cover was blown during his director, Irene Kennedy's, confirmation hearing and President Hayes acknowledged his role in the fight against terrorism. This made him a well known media figure and a target for the terrorist world. He married Anna and became an advisor for the CIA, having a desk job that is supposed to keep him off of the front lines, but this doesn't last for long.

A security breech leads to the ambush of a Navy SEALs team performing a rescue mission in the Philippines. Other events result in a massive terrorist plan masterminded by a man known as David and financed by the wealthy Saudi Prince Omar. These events pull Rapp away from his desk job and put him back on the front lines, much to the anger of his new wife.

The CIA quickly uncovers the bureaucrats involved in the high level security leak that led to the ambush and death of the Navy SEALs. Rapp and other in the administration are infuriated by the situation, and Rapp flies to the Philippines to handle the situation. While this is taking place, the plans of David and Prince Omar being to play out. Bombs explode at the high level meeting of terrorists in Hebron, moments before an Israeli Apache helicopter missile attack. The Israelis claimed there was a terrorist bomb factory and the attack brings them condemnation from the world. Then the Palestinian ambassador to the United Nations and the Saudi ambassador are killed on American soil. All of this is right before a critical vote on a French resolution for a free independent Palestine. The United States is put in a very bad position. It is up to Mitch Rapp and his director, Irene Kennedy, to find out who is behind all of this.

Vince Flynn writes an exciting novel. The fast paced action of the novel will hold the reader's interest. The reader will find it difficult to put the book down once he/she begins reading it. Executive Power is well worth the time spent reading.
