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

    "3 Reasons to Avoid This Book "

    Firstly the plot is unrealistic, implausible and simplistic. Second the characters are flat and stereotyped forcing the unfortunate performer to have to put on silly voices to tell them apart. And finally although the book may be new to Audible its really dated - my guess written 25 years ago and as such can't be taken seriously as a contemporary political thriller that uses in its context the unsuccessful attempted World Trade Center bombing, only one Gulf War, no such entity as Homeland Security, and the use of pagers among the elite of law enforcement

    Story
    "They had the right idea, but..."

    They talked about closing the government, but then they thought it would be too harsh.

    I liked The Libertarian Dictator better as it took care of business.

    "Exciting Ride!"

    The story kept men engaged the whole time. Constantly looked forward to what was around the next corner. Loved the characters. I couldn't believe the same narrator did them all.

    "A great read."

    What an outstanding book. Mr. Flynn has captured the current American political climate with a thriller that is not hard to believe it could actually happen. Outstanding book.

    Story
    "Boring, too much description of procedure"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Spy geeks, folks who like covert operations description.


    What was most disappointing about Vince Flynn’s story?

    Too long, this could have been a way shorter book if it was better edited. The description of procedure went on for entirely too long, it puts the listener to sleep.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narrator did a good creating voices that fit the characters.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    not for me

    "What a great thriller from the start to the finish"

    I loved this book. It was well thought out and kept me engaged in the moment the entire time. I didn't want it to end but wanted to know how it would end

    "Timely and spit on"

    Excellent presentation, writing, and story lines. This hits the very issues we are seeing today in power politics. It wasn't about left or right per se but rather about those in power holding on at the expense of the country itself.

    The characters are fully developed and lend credence to the story. Great roles here for a movie.

    Gripping tale kept me up into the wee hours.

    Highly recommend.

    "narrator is best part"

    Story caught my attention right away. Too bad it did keep it. Lost interest in the middle.
    Did listen to the end.
