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

    "One of the best V. Flynn books"

    Pre Mitch Rapp, but many other RappVerse characters make their premier. Still a great listen even w/o the awesome spy/assassin Rapp.

    "Tin Foil Hat is a must..."
    What would have made Term Limits better?

    A juvenile take on the political thriller at best, Term Limits would certainly have benefited from completely formed characters rather than the paper cut-outs that Flynn utilizes.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Vince Flynn again?

    Absolutely not.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator did a credible job with an un-credible story.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    My reaction was mostly one of disgust. I would imagine seeing the KKK glorified as heroes in "Birth Of A Nation" would be a similar experience to reading this drivel.


    Any additional comments?

    I have never read "The Turner Diaries", and now I don't have to.

    Story
    "Morally bankrupt thriller"

    Of the 50 Audible books I have experienced, this is one of the more compelling. The story is complex and driving. I found that I could not stop listening. As a side point of interest, I was fascinated by how much technology has changed in the 19 years since the book was published. The story exists in a world without extensive smart phones use and limited surveillance techniques. It is an interesting pre- 9-11 take on the nation.
    I didn't give the story five star because of the overall tone. As a three decade resident of the DC area it annoyed me that the domestic murderers were portrayed as heroes through out the book. Yeah., we all have fantasies about killing off incompetent obstructionist members of Congress. The black op killings in this book are NOT acts of patriotism. They are acts of domestic terrorism. "Old Grandpa" is not a hero. He is a old, rich entitled white guy who is a murdering terrorist

    "pretty good"

    I assume the military technology is as dated as the pagers. but it is still an interesting premiss and a fairly good story. no surprises.

    "Very Disappointing..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, there are no good guys in this book. I expected a good vs. evil story and got evil vs. more evil. Not the author's best effort.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No

    Story
    "CIA and FBI get a pass, for once."

    Well crafted plot exposes seedier sides of politics and unchecked personal ambition. Flynn, like Brad Thor often punish the CIA and FBI, but they come off as competently practical in dealing with issues that could fracture the government. Hard to stop listening.

    "Super story"

    One of Flynn's best. Great characters. You never know what's coming next. Strong political statements, but still a great story.
