Under a specific directive from the President, Special Service Agent Scott Roarke delves into the case and begins to unravel a deadly plot that incubated for more than 30 years; designed to alter America's allegiances in the Middle East. From the first few seconds, Executive Actions culls events from today's headlines intersecting with a scenario that's shockingly real: An insidious plot hatched in the old days of the Soviet Union continues to grow to fruition in the hands of a power hungry Middle East heir to the throne. At its core, a sleeper is awakened to take a prominent role in American Life. Executive Actions is a tense political thriller; an election year page-turner, where both the Presidency and the Constitution are at stake.

Exciting, entertaining story, so so narration.
I loved the story. If you go into the story, without too much scrutiny and allow the author a bit of room, then its an entertaining well paced exciting story.
If you don't allow the author some licence then I think it would be easy to dislike this book, particularly toward the end. If you love well constructed plausible plot lines keep away from this book. If you are willing to let the author string you along and don't think too deeply about the plausibility of the plot and the actions of some of the characters this is a cracking book.
I have mixed thoughts about the narrator, the deepness of his voice is off the scale and at first listen he sounds totally pretentious. I have a fairly high end car stereo, I had to turn down the bass to stop the car from shaking when the narrator spoke. Seriously!
When I first starting listening to this book, I hated the narration. I considered giving up on this book and returning it. The narrator quickly started to grow on me, particularly after turning down the bass on my car stereo. As I got used to the narrator and I also think he toned down some of the pretension after the first few chapters, I actually started to enjoy the book much more. On the positive side the narrator's pacing is quite good and the main character is noted in the story as having a distinctive voice.
I am off to buy the next book in the executive series.

LOVE Reading stuff like this
Gary Grossman is my new favorite writer. I really enjoy all of his characters, the story line, the cliff hangers, the sex scenes, etc. If you are into political intrigue and adventure, this is it, people. The whole series.............for me, page burners, and I love page burners. Just starting the third book in this series and I am already hooked.

great tale, well put together. complex but characters well differentiated by narrator. lots of detail but not overwhelming. only downside was the sickly sweet Katy/Rourke relationship
