Term Limits | [Vince Flynn]

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.

    Story
    "Not one of my favorites........."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really. I have listened to all the other books in this series and am spoiled with Mitch Rapp.(this one is pre-Rapp) Plus there is no better than George Guidell except maybe Will Patton in the James Lee Burke books……...


    What was most disappointing about Vince Flynn’s story?

    No Mitch Rapp….


    What didn’t you like about Nick Sullivan’s performance?

    Some of his characters were hard to listen too…...


    Was Term Limits worth the listening time?

    Yes but just barely

    Story
    "Another Vince Flynn success."

    This is not a Mitch Rapp book; however, you are introduced to some of the characters in the Rapp series. I think this should be standard reading for every politician! It reads (listens) like most of the Flynn books. The storyline is wishful thinking, but wouldn't it be nice if politicians had consequences for turning D.C. into thier own playground and stopped fighting for the people they represent.

    Story
    "Flynn is always great"

    Having read the Mitch Rapp books first, I was pleased by the effective and consistent introduction of the characters that would appear again and again in future books. WHile others have lamented that George Guidall did not do this read, I thought the reader did a great job.

    Story
    "Entertaining. Only my second Flynn book"
    What made the experience of listening to Term Limits the most enjoyable?

    Despite contrary accounts, I thought the narrator was good. As a Flynn newcomer, I thought Sullivan was as good as Guidall. Different for sure, but good. It probably all depends on what you start with and get accustomed to, but I found Sullivan effective and engaging. In fact I find Guidall so different, it has taken some time to appreciate him.


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

    Plot was, formulaic, but it is what you would expect from this kind of book and kept my interest.


    Which character – as performed by Nick Sullivan – was your favorite?

    dunno, maybe The chief of staff, very unlikeable.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No part particularly moved me.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like the Mitch Rapp series, this is a good listen.

    "Another great chapter in the Flynn novels"

    The story has a good flow to keep the listener interested. I listened almost straight through. A great narration that helps give life to the story. This novel helps fill the gaps in the Mitch Rapp series.

    "Believable in Today's Political Chaos"
    Any additional comments?

    This book had great detail and a compelling plot that made it a believable story. As someone who grew up in Minnesota, has dated a guy in the Special Forces, is friends with a former Marine One pilot and is an independent voter I enjoyed how all those elements worked together. The character descriptions were spot on. I also appreciated that the author never mentions political parties. He simply points out the problem of partisan politics. Good listen, especially this time of year with the Presidential election.
