    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.

    Overall

    I generally enjoy the agent/action thriller genre, and have listened to all of the unabridged books by Vince Flynn. Flynn's books generally reflect a right wing political philosophy (characteristic of the genre), which, in his other books, is mere atmospherics easily tolerated for the sake of a good yarn. But this one goes too far: making heroes out of ex-seals who decide to solve the spiraling national debt by assassinating the elected representatives who support the president's budget -- including one senator obviously modeled on Teddy Kennedy. (Sound familiar?) The book was published in 2009, before the current Tea Party-led train wreck, but the glorification of right wing political assassins is only one step removed from the no-compromise/no-quarter mentality of the radical right in this country.
