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.

©2009 Vince Flynn (P)2011 Simon & Schuster

    "Drama from beginning to end"

    This book opened with 'murder in mind'. The listener was hooked after the first sentence and fifteen hours later your are disappointed that the book is at an end. There was never a moment where the action stopped or slowed. There was never a moment that the reader wanted to put the book down to mundane things like going to the bathroom.
    This is the first of Mr. Flynn's books that I have read/listened to but I plan to get all of them. Many reviewers say that the writers who have picked up his style of writing are doing an excellent job for the deceased author but I wonder how they can fill his shoes. He is up there with Michael Connelly, Ben Coes, Brian Freeman and Mark Greaney.
    I recommend this book.
    Until this book I was not familiar with Nick Sullivan. But I have come to love his style and easy cadence. He has a voice that you can listen to for hours and never grow tired. That was important since I had such difficulty pulling this book down.

    "Bad story concept"

    I object to the premise that killing people is an acceptable way of dealing with an ineffective government.

    Story
    "Not a waste of time, enjoyable right until the nea"

    This is bearable. The characters are not totally shallow, the premise gripping enough to keep me listening, and the physical sequences are punchy and not gory.

    Near the end I stopped reading as I didn't really care enough about the characters to endure the "the cavalry is coming" scenes plus what I imagined would be sappy conclusions to the love story.

    But hey, I return most of these things after 40 minutes so this is better than most!

    I recommend Slow Horses for a really well written one.

    And I do recommend this. It's really above average.

    "Unexpectedly outstanding"

    I tried this audio book on a whim, wanting to try something new by an author I'd never read. I literally could not turn it off! The suspense and excitement were riveting. I can't wait to hear more from this author! Loved the narrator too.

    "Wordy"

    Excessively long. Story & characters seemed forced. Storyline became predicable. Action sequenced well done as normal for author.
