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 counter-terrorism operative Mitch Rapp. But with only two weeks to take out the nukes, Rapp is up against a ticking clock - and impossible odds.

On to the next book in the series...👍🏾🔥👍🏾🔥👍🏾🔥👍🏾🔥👍🏾🔥
In this book Irene Kennedy has been nominated to succeed her boss who has died. Mitch Rapp is working to find out who is behind the attempts on his life, while Iraq is on the verge of having nuclear capability with Israel's Mossad sharing this information with the U.S., and Mitch making plans to propose to Anna Reilly.
The complications behind each of these and how they are linked and resolved will keep you reading this wanting to see how these will ultimately play out. Suffice it to say it is the way it unfolds that has kept me reading these books.
I have now read all of the Vince Flynn books and will greatly miss not having any more to read after his death in 2013 from cancer.

The field is a crowded one but there is no doubt that Mitch Rapp stands at the front of the bunch.
Thomas Stansfield, the CIA Director is now dead and Dr Irene Kennedy is the new head of the CIA, the President Hayes (US President) has hidden enemies in Washington who are determined on bringing about his demise. Meanwhile the Israeli’s have discovered that Saddam Hussein is close to entering the Nuclear Arms race and they have given the US two weeks to deal with the problem, or they will take action themselves, which could see the start of World War 3. Mitch Rapp longs to retire from his role as America’s secret weapon against terrorism and live a normal life with Anna Reilly, but his reputation and unique skills see him dragged into destroying the nuclear weapons and also to find out who is behind the plotting against President Hayes.
Vince Flynn has created a character and a series which is a true rival to Lee Child’s Jack Reacher. These are well written thrillers, packed with political intrigue and meticulously researched. Flynn clearly has an excellent grip of the field of intelligence and I would guess he has some well placed sources that provide him with his research material. The plot is fast paced and Separation of Power, like the previous Flynn books I have read, is extremely difficult to put down. If I were to level one criticism of Flynn, is that Rapp’s character’s credibility is stretched to the limit on a few occasions. I won’t spoil the plot, but the resolution of the Iraqi nuclear crisis had me cringing at times. The fact that Rapp casually won the Hawaii Ironman in his spare time, whilst defeating America’s enemies also had me smiling. That said, this is a common criticism of the genre and writers from Jack Higgins to Tom Clancy have also been guilty. I would urge readers to put any scepticism aside and enjoy Vince Flynn’s books for what they are, well written thrillers.
I was saddened to read about Vince Flynn’s passing away and his books will be missed, particularly as I know a little about how hard it was for him to initially break through. RIP Vince Flynn.
My only question to my self would be, why have I waited so long to read another on Vince Flynn's books?
It's a great read - Rapp is trying to get out of the assasination business, but someone is after him, and in typical Rapp fashion, he has to sort it out himself.
Of course, there are a number of sub plots involving Mossad and his own Government and they all have to ge cleared before Rapp can set himself free, but can he.
I would highly recommend this book.
