I like Vince Flynn, but despite all the hoopla, I really think he's only OK. I laughed out loud in this book when he went on and on about Hurley going to dinner with "a beautiful, classy woman at his side...She'd aged a bit, but so had he, and on her it looked good. Her raven black hair was shorter now, just below her ears, and she'd added a few wrinkles around her eyes and mouth, but in a strange way it made her even sexier. That a woman could age so gracefully was something that turned Hurley on. Whether it was due to genetics or some daily regimen, he didn't care. The end result was all that interested him, and the end result was..." drum roll here, are you ready? "...a gorgeous 44-year-old woman..."
Yep. You read that right. The woman who'd aged so gracefully is all of 44. His plots are pretty good, and this one's no exception, but I find his writing sophomoric, which is a disappointment.
