I just finished reading "Consent to Kill" by Vince Flynn.
It's 675 pages, plus about 12 pages of his next book.
"Consent to Kill" is a political spy thriller. The main character is "Mitch Rapp", a highly trained CIA Counterterrorist (assassin). His job has earned him a number of enemies over the years and one of them wants "eye for an eye" and has put a multi million dollar bounty on Mitch Rapp's head.
The author has certainly done his research and the strategies used in the book are real strategies that various government intelligence groups use around the world. It's quite interesting in that regard.
The book moves at a reasonably good pace with the exception of a few places where it just seems to ramble and repeat the same thing in different words over a few pages, but that can be forgiven because the plot itself is interesting.
You will find yourself loving some characters, despising others and pitying other ones.
The writing style took me a little while to get used to. The grammar seems very unsophisticated in some places and quite "simpleton" in nature when there doesn't seem to be a reason in the story for it to be like that. In addition to poor grammar I noticed quite a number of spelling mistakes which I'm surprised weren't caught before it went to publish a number of times already.
Over all the book is a very worthy read if you like political spy thrillers and intrigue.
I'm about to reread "The Lord of the Rings - Fellowship of the Ring". I'm totally addicted to Tolkien's books! I've read them about 11 times since the spring of 2005
