Publisher's Summary

In one bloody night, three of Washington’s most powerful politicians are executed with surgical precision. Their assassins then deliver a shocking ultimatum to the American government: set aside partisan politics and restore power to the people. No one, they warn, is out of their reach—not even the president. A joint FBI-CIA task force reveals the killers are elite military commandos, but no one knows exactly who they are or when they will strike next. Only Michael O’Rourke, a former U.S. Marine and freshman congressman, holds a clue to the violence: a haunting incident in his own past with explosive implications for his country’s future.

Term Limits

My first encounter with Vince Flynn was "Consent To Kill" which I found magnificent. So of course I went to his first book to start them in series IE "Term Limits". I found "Term Limits" very well written, exciting and entertaining. I also like George Guidall as a Narrator but I thought this narrator (Nick Sullivan) was just superb. I can't wait to download "Transfer of Power" which is the next in sequence.

IN THE BEGINNING

First off...I know there's some who think that the only Vince Flynn worth listening to is read by George Giddal and having the complete series I can understand that, but Nick Sullivan does a pretty good job too. I found myself not even noticing the different reader once the story really got going.

As others have said this is sort of the set up for what was to become the Mitch Rapp series.....Without Mitch....Oh and it's a bit dated because mobile phones were either carried in bags or were car phones. None the less this was a great insight to the setting that eventually Mitch Rapp became part of with most of the main characters on board.

One thing I get a kick out of with Vince Flynn is that he really has a very low opinion about politicians and those who work under them. This is consistant in almost every book. They are evey bit as big of a problem as the terrorists.

Vince Flynn is such a good story teller. I'm a trucker and his books really help chew up miles because they really keep me interested in what's going to happen next. I was just looking to see if I missed any and found out I have them all...Damn good listens...
