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 riveting read full of political intrigue."

    I've read this book multiple times. Listening in audio format was even more enjoyable. An exciting read with an interesting story line.

    "So sad to read the last one."

    An exceptional book taking us back to a story before Mitch Rapp. What a great series by a dearly missed American Patriot who could see into the future of our history and the failings of our Government. It was hard to get used to Sullivans narration. He is no George Guidall that's for sure. God Bless the clandestine services of the various agencies!

    "Slow start, but fair political thriller."

    Yes, it was a little cliche and could have used a few more plot twists, but i found it to be an enjoyable political thriller. It was still a fun book and a good way to pass the time. However, the author was a little too didactic, and needs to value human life a little more than economics. I'll always value the sanctity of life above political or economic views.

    "Excellent story"

    This book was probably one of my favorite Flynn books. In our current political climate it makes you wonder how shady some of the political dealings really are in our government. It's a great " good guys win" book. I've recommended it to several friends and they're Vince Flynn fans now.

    "Vince Flynn's conservative roots show through"

    Vince Flynn's conservative roots really shine through in his first book. That being said, it is a good first yarn. The stereo types that plague his latest books find their origins here's why does every politician need a limo? It is the genesis of the Mitch Rapp series. If you love the series, you should read or listen to this one.

    "Good Story"

    It was a good story line. But sorry it did not include Mitch Rapp! Just not the same without him.

    "Nick Sullivan is excellent!!"

    This book does not have Mitch Rapp but all the other folks we have came to love in Flynn's world are here. Great story and it sort of intertwines into a few other books. Give it a try.


    I place a lot of stock in the narrator of each book I listen to. The narrator can make or break a bad/good story. The reviews I've read had me scared to even attempt this one. After listening to each book read by George Guidall I've came back to each read by Nick Sullivan so I can finish the complete series.
    Well......Nick Sullivan takes a little getting used to after listening to George for so many hours but Nick Sullivan does an excellent job.
    So if you are an avid Vince Flynn fan don't let all the misanthrope get to you.

    "Remember it's fiction"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I always have enjoyed Vince Flynn I have downloaded and listened to all of them. this was one I downloaded in abridged format so I bought the unabridged version. there is a lot more to the story. However I must say I would hate to think the plot line was accepted as a plausible reality. Killing politicians to overthrow the government? sounds like a dictatorial plot to me. This was a fun book to listen to just don't get to serious about the plot. I like science fiction with implausible plots too. I just don't take them too seriously.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Vince Flynn? Why or why not?

    I have all i can get from Audible


    Which scene was your favorite?

    shooting flairs at marine one


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

    It was a fun book
