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.

    "A blueprint of what America should do."

    This is a timely book and addresses most of the issues that confront us today. Though most of us would find the path these people take to be harsh and brutal; after consideration you will grow to accept it and wish for such people among us.

    Story
    "A Complex and Believable Thriller"

    The story is one virtually every American can relate to: Government is out of control; behaving irresponsibly; and has totally lost touch with the people and the best interests of the nation. What to do?

    What follows is a sort of vicariously satisfying fantasy about revenge, and setting it all straight. Most tomes of this genre get a little far fetched and hard to swallow. I felt that Flynn did a solid job of maintaining the right mix of "what if" plausibility with an interesting story. There's plenty of accuracy in the details concerning things like covert surveillance, technology, special ops, etc. - enough to satisfy geek aficionados of Clancy without boring the rest with 200+ pages of excruciating detail.

    This may be the only Flynn book I ever read, since he seems fond of "star" characters that reappear over-and-over again in all his novels. This is not one of those (I really hate it when authors do that). I originally got the abridged version of this book since at the time, that's all that was available. For those that may have done the same, get this one - it's worth the credit and delivers a much richer story in the unabridged form.

    The narrator did a solid job and was quite listenable. This one will keep you guessing and engaged.

    Story
    "Fabulous, exciting, scary"
    Where does Term Limits rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's one of the number one books I have read. Including this one I now have three at number one now. And I read and listen to a great deal of books.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes it did! I kept pulling for the bad guys and was actually yelling at the bad guys while listening in my car. It's one of the few that have made me drive slower so I could find out what happened next. Listening to this one I was traveling in the right lane on the Interstates, unheard for me.


    What does Nick Sullivan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He voiced all of the characters exactly like I pictured them. I know I listen to some books and the narrator doesn't put the right voice to the characters and I end up stopping a good plot because my picture of them is totally distorted. NOT ON THIS ONE!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me cheer! It also made me mad as heck....the government characters are exactly like I think our Senators and Congressman are destroying the current and future freedom and rights of the American people. This is truly a "Current Events" fiction.


    Any additional comments?

    Everyone should read this book! Including the current elected officials. Scare the pants off them for sure!

    "Fun, tense thriller"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Term Limits to be better than the print version?

    This audio edition had some mistakes and skipping and editing problems.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. Kept wondering who would die next and how it would come to an end


    Have you listened to any of Nick Sullivan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Revolution from within

    "Don't waste your credits"

    This is the first book of the Mitch Rapp series. With a very weak story line and the absence of George Guidall (the reader of the later books in the series), this book is one that may make many listeners angry that they wasted 15 hours of their life. The best part of the book is that several key characters that play important roles in later books are introduced, including an aide to Irene named Mitchell ( I assume Mitch Rapp), who has only a cameo appearance.

    "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).

    "Confused"

    Didn't seem worth it. Not very well written; no depth. Author focuses on action and adds no depth

    "Scary"

    I generally enjoy the agent/action thriller genre, and have listened to all of the unabridged books by Vince Flynn. Flynn's books generally reflect a right wing political philosophy (characteristic of the genre), which, in his other books, is mere atmospherics easily tolerated for the sake of a good yarn. But this one goes too far: making heroes out of ex-seals who decide to solve the spiraling national debt by assassinating the elected representatives who support the president's budget -- including one senator obviously modeled on Teddy Kennedy. (Sound familiar?) The book was published in 2009, before the current Tea Party-led train wreck, but the glorification of right wing political assassins is only one step removed from the no-compromise/no-quarter mentality of the radical right in this country.

    Love Vince Flynn ... doesn't really matter what the story entails, just agree with his general attitude. But ... where's Mitch Rapp? Missed him in this story.

    "Early Flynn -- Too Early"

    Laughable plot in which the "hero" leads a group of former soldiers in a plot to kill politicians who refuse to balance the budget (along with one senator who revealed confidential information while drunk, leading to a military mission being compromised). This is right-wing propaganda in extreme form. The heros all love their guns -- anyone who is not a gun nut is of suspect character. Flynn's later novels -- the Mitch Rapp novels -- are enjoyable even for people who are not right wing zealots, although the political orientation of the writer is clear. Term limits, however, has too many rough edges -- and the plot does not make sense. In the final resolution somehow the deficit spending issue that prompted the initial assassinations is forgotten.
