Publisher's Summary

After taking a bullet for his commander-in-chief, Secret Service agent Joseph Reeder is a hero. But his outspoken criticism of the president he saved - who had stacked the Supreme Court with hard-right justices to overturn Roe v. Wade, amp up the Patriot Act, and shred the First Amendment - put Reeder at odds with the Service's apolitical nature, making him an outcast.

FBI agent Patti Rogers finds herself paired with the unpopular former agent on a task force investigating the killing of Supreme Court Justice Henry Venter. Reeder - nicknamed "Peep" for his unparalleled skills at reading body language - makes a startling discovery while reviewing a security tape: the shooting was premeditated, not a botched robbery. Even more chilling, the controversial Venter may not be the only justice targeted for death.

Is a mastermind mounting an unprecedented judicial coup aimed at replacing ultra-conservative justices with a new liberal majority? To crack the conspiracy and save the lives of not just the justices but also Reeder's own family, rising star Rogers and legendary investigator Reeder must push their skills - and themselves - to the limit.

    Story
    "Future World?"

    It's somewhere between 2020 and 2030; the first and fourth amendments have been shredded by neo-con supreme justices and Roe vs. Wade overturned. Then a conservative Supreme Court Justice is murdered in what appears to be a botched robbery. The FBI's special agent in charge brings in his old friend Joe Reeder who has already discerned this wasn't a robbery gone wrong; it was an assassination. Then another justice is brought down and suspicion falls on Reeder.
    This is a nice little story and if there weren't so many implausibility's it would be a good buy. Unfortunately there is only so much suspension of belief possible before it becomes too jarring and ruins the narrative. If they'd dialed it back just a bit It might've been a four star work. Maybe it's just me but I can't give more than two.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Good, but disappointing, political thriller!"

    Max Allan Collins, as he is wont to do, has again written a book based on a good concept and then damaged it by no or poor research. I have already written a review of State of the Union, the second book in this series, making the same point. Collins' lack of research takes a nice 4 star novel and reduces it to three stars.

    Avid reader turned "listener" when I had to learn to fit reading and cleaning into one nap time.

    "Somewhat predictable"

    It started off as a good story, but the intricacies ended up being explained by the characters in narrative rather than through the story itself. It was an ok drama.

    "Interesting concept"

    A very relevant concept to today. Some of the writing was reiterative, but still interested. I despised the narrator or read for the women in the book. They seemed to be written as tough, smart women,, and his voice turned them into pansy, air headed damsels.

    "Timely"

    Very timely topic. Well written & not predictable. Thought provoking conspiracy theory and all loss ends tied up.

    "Just okay, not great."

    Story line was pretty good but I should have read the book, it would have been better than listening to this performance.

    "Glocks do not have external safety mechanisms"

    For as well researched as this book should have been, I could not get past the trained ex-special forces guy checking the safety on a Glock.

    Story
    "it was OK."

    I didn't get interested in the audible book until chapter 10. I was a little lost with some of the characters throughout the book. I kept trying to figure out who was who for a couple of them. The female character voices just didn't cut it for me, and two of the male character voices at the end sounded exactly the same. Overall a good performance but just not for me. The end of the story just fell short. I suspected it was going to end that way but I didn't know who.
