    Alex Miller is a criminal defense lawyer leading the life he always imagined. At thirty-five, he is the youngest partner at New York City's most prestigious law firm, with a beautiful wife and a perfect daughter. When Alex's father suddenly passes away, Alex is introduced to Michael Ohlig, a rich and powerful man who holds an almost mythical place in his family lore. But Alex is surprised when Ohlig admits that he's in serious legal trouble, accused of crimes involving hundreds of millions of dollars.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not, there are many better reads to recommend.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Kept me interested, but comfortably in the middle of my chair.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    This is the first narration that I have listened to, over 5 or 6 years, that did not fit the book or enhance the experience. He was not bad, just didn't fit the voices and intonation to the characters.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    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.

    Where does Term Limits rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks in the top half of all the audiobooks I have listened to so far. Given today's environment in Washington, the premise of the story was interesting and timely even though it was written 10 years ago. No Mitch Rapp was slightly disappointing, but it was better in some ways to have many of the familiar characters involved just before his arrival in subsequent books.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Interesting plot, kept the listener engaged.


    Have you listened to any of Nick Sullivan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Similar to other of his narrations. Good narration, nice character differentiation.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the credit.
