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.

    "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.

    Any additional comments?

    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.

    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.

    "Terrible"

    First of all, I generally enjoy Vince Flynn's writing but I found the plot of Term Limits absolutely ridiculous. Basically a group of ex-special force commandos, frustrated by deficit spending and the national debt, try to enforce their Teabag agenda by assassinating senators and congressmen. Meanwhile as his colleagues are being brutally killed, the central character, freshman congressman Michael O’Rourke, has a deep suspicion who is behind the killings but is conflicted about contacting the FBI because the killer is a friend and the assassinated politicians "deserved it" due to their reckless spending. WHAT! I am unsure if Vince Flynn wrote this book or if it was a PR ploy by Fox News.
