Shadowy elements within the State Department secretly cause tensions to flare between Iran and the former Soviet republic of Azerbaijan. They hope to start a shooting war to increase their own power and profit. At the same time, the conspirators decide to up the ante - by deposing the president of the United States.
In a treacherous scheme, they convince the president that he is mentally unstable, and a silent coup d'etat is within their reach. On alert, Paul Hood and the Op-Center team race the clock to prevent war, save the president - and expose the traitors. Clancy's imagination is at its fast-paced best in this gripping tale of statesmanship gone terribly wrong.
Prolong the suspense: listen to more titles in Tom Clancy's Op-Center series.

The monotone voice of the performance was so dull and bad, couldn't follow the story
Could never tell, couldn't follow the plot due to performance, LOU DIAMOND PHILLIPS where are you when reads such as this are still around
Couldn't stand listening long enough to make a good judgement call
I enjoy reading fantasy, crime and mystery thrillers, as well as historical novels.
Being able to follow the audio with the print version of the book just makes the reading experience more enjoyable.
The twists and turns the book takes and discovering who all the plotters in the whitehouse were was edge of the seat stuff.
Paul Hood is my favourite character as he unravels the plot and doesn't let anyone stand in the way of letting the president know the truth of what is going on with his closest advisors.
I listened in one sitting on my kindle fire. I always speed the audiobook up to get through it faster.
