"Returning from a covert mission, Mitch Rapp was publicly hailed by the president for his role in the fight against terrorism. After years of working in the shadows, Rapp was caught in the media spotlight--and marked for death by virtually every terrorist in the world. Now a CIA advisor, Rapp is ready to battle terror far from the front lines. But when a Navy SEAL team in the Philippines is ambushed, all evidence points to a leak within the U.S. State Department. And a great threat lurks--a ruthless assassin working for the most powerful men in the Middle East, who are bent on igniting a world war. With the world watching, Rapp must hold back the flames of Armageddon..."--p. [4] of cover

Executive Power is a return to form after Separation of Power which dealt with Mitch Rapp’s personal life. Rapp’s marriage and related problems do come to the fore but only for a limited time. In fact, reading about Rapp getting a dressing down from his wife is one of the novel’s funnier moments. However, the main focus of the novel is on two separate terror events: one a botched hostage rescue in the Philippines and the other a plot to force a Palestinian state through unorthodox terror methods. The latter shows a more nuanced understanding of Middle East problems than Flynn’s usual good guy-bad guy approach. Overall it was hard to put down.

If you like Vince Flynn, you'll like this book about the continuing adventures of Mitch Rapp, CIA agent. I agree with Razor that this is one of the better books this Minneapolis author has written. It is more balanced that his usual right-wing take on the political scene. But hey, let's face it -- it's pure escapism enjoyment.

Another great Vince Flynn novel; one of the best I've read (so far). A powerful story with a great plot that puts Mitch Rapp into the thick of the action. Flynn's novel brings the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to the forefront, a conflict that continues to bedevil the Middle East ? and the rest of the world ? to this day! Highly recommend this book.
