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)
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.
I've listened to the entire Mitch Rapp series and while "Term Limits" is not a Mitch Rapp novel, it is hands down one of the best books Mr. Flynn wrote. It is my personal favorite.
Research Technologist with deep interests in Host Cell - Pathogen Interactions & Cancer Research. I enjoy and mostly listen to Non-Fiction audiobooks on Medicine/Science, War and History. I also like to Game when I'm not in the lab.
This is one of the best books I've listened in a while and getting all other books in the series after this. Story, climax and narration were all perfect. Narrator Nick Sullivan did a wonderful job with the different voices and really loved it. I recommend this to all and Vince Flynn, may you soul rest in Perfect Peace. Love your work and hope you still around.
I enjoy being able to highlight and notate the 'pages' w/o messing up the paper pages of a book. being able to listen while working and still getting work done (something I wasn't sure I could do) is great and adds to the time I now have to get books 'read'!
I titled this horrified because when I first read this at the suggestion of a friend I was horrified by the story and horrified again that I liked it! since then I have read all of Vince Flynn's books and have them on my shelf right next to Tolkien which is how much I love and honor him and the characters he has given us. God bless Vince Flynn - the world is lessened by his passing.
Great novel. It takes place in modern day US. Too real to not get sucked into the story line. Wish I could give it 6 stars. This is a story about patriots taking back their country from the corrupt and greedy.
"A great modern thriller!"
A great read don't miss it! worth every page. not to be missed.. Add it to your library. You won't be sorry
