    Four United States presidents have been assassinated - in 1865, 1881, 1901, and 1963 - each murder seemingly unrelated and separated by time. But what if those presidents were all killed for the same reason: a clause in the United States Constitution - contained within Article 1, Section 8 - that would shock Americans? This question is what faces former Justice Department operative Cotton Malone in his latest adventure. When a bold assassination attempt is made against President Danny Daniels in the heart of Manhattan, Malone risks his life to foil the killing....

    Eric says: "Great listen; great narration, worth the credit"

    Story

    I'm about half way through this one, and it's all I can do to keep listening to it. It is nothing more than a conglomeration of poorly disguised story lines lifted from everything from National Treasure to 24 (remember the whole story line with the secret service agent and the First Lady in 24 one season?).

    Also, the way the story is told makes keeping up with the characters very difficult. I listen to lots of audiobooks, even several read by Scott Brick, and have never had this problem before. Perhaps it's because SB doesn't alter his voice between characters as much as some other readers, but I think the way it's written is the real problem.

    I find myself at this point listening, not because the story is enjoyable, but because I'm determined not to waste the credit I used to purchase the darned book.
