Term Limits

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.

Publisher's Summary

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. Only Michael O’Rourke, a former U.S. Marine and freshman congressman, holds a clue to the violence: a haunting incident in his own past with explosive implications for his country’s future.

    Yes and I have at least 9 already.

    "Entertaining"
    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.

    "Disappointing"

    Though I am a fan of Flynn's books I found this one very disappointing and tedious, and bailed out about two hours from the end.

    "I see why it wasn't released in a timely manner."

    If you are a Vince fan you'll see 'origin of' several characters like the comic books of our youth. Familiar people but nary a mention of Mitch. Vince must have written this on lunch breaks but it is still a great 'secret wish' of any sentient patriot. The editor who said 'wait until you need a break' is fine by me because it gave us a Vince when he needed a break. Buy it! (400 plus titles bought).

    "not his best, but entertaining none the less"

    For the most part, I enjoyed the book. This novel had the feel of a first attempt. Fortunately for all of us Flynn has continued to grow and build on some of these characters. I had heard this novel was a little choppy but I really wanted to see where it all began. Thank you Vince Flynn, I love your books.

    "Page turner"

    I have always enjoyed Vince Flynn's books and this was no exception. It was good to see Scott Coleman, Thomas Stansfield and Irene Kennedy in this moving story about what really happens in Washington and having worked for the federal government both in DC and Fort Bragg and four years in an overseas assignment I can relate to the mishandling of funds and how much is wasted on unnecessary equipment and reams of paper especially at the end of the fiscal year when it became use it or lose it and so everyone with buying authority starts buying new chairs, new furniture in general and upgraded computers that were only a year old fot the commanders secretary and anyone else on the nice list because if you were naughty you got hand me downs or nothing. But I enjoyed my jobs and wouldn't change that experience for a sac of gold Thank you Vince Flynn.

    "Excellent narration!"

    Nick Sullivan is an excellent narrator for the Vince Flynn series! His voices really bring the characters to life and give a perfect mental image.
