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.

"A page-turning read." (Larry King, USA Today)
"Ingenious....Outpaces anything recently published, including Baldacci and Clancy." (Florida Times-Union)
"A roller-coaster, edge-of-your-seat thriller with loads of insiders' lowdown on D.C. politics." (Minneapolis Star-Tribune)
Unlike many novelists in this genre, Flynn doesn't overwhelm the story with a flood of "inside the beltway " minutia. Term Limits strikes the perfect balance of politics and payback like no others I've read. GET THIS BOOK!
This novel is one not easily forgotten, especially because due the current political divisions in this country written in this work are still, if not more "relevant" .It's unfortunate that many of the politicians mirror the reality and remind me of several saved only by money and lack of term limits for even the most incompetent in both parties.
Well written, and one of the few where the story is believable, which is rare in the espionage and politics genre.
It is a tragedy the author died so young and a loss to everyone who enjoys his unique books which all were an enjoyable experience.
The story is just what will get you thinking and in today's society will shake you to your core.
This will make you fall in love with reading or listening on Audible.

I have been with audible for many years, and have listen to many books. I must say ,this book without doubt. Is the best book I have ever listen too. I didn't want this book to end.Vince Flynn at his best.
Loved this book. Thought I had missed a publishing year only to find it was the first. The book provides character backgrounds for many characters in his later books.
There was no Rapp in this episode but it was still a very very excellent. I enjoyed it tremendously.
