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.

    "IN THE BEGINNING"

    First off...I know there's some who think that the only Vince Flynn worth listening to is read by George Giddal and having the complete series I can understand that, but Nick Sullivan does a pretty good job too. I found myself not even noticing the different reader once the story really got going.

    As others have said this is sort of the set up for what was to become the Mitch Rapp series.....Without Mitch....Oh and it's a bit dated because mobile phones were either carried in bags or were car phones. None the less this was a great insight to the setting that eventually Mitch Rapp became part of with most of the main characters on board.

    One thing I get a kick out of with Vince Flynn is that he really has a very low opinion about politicians and those who work under them. This is consistant in almost every book. They are evey bit as big of a problem as the terrorists.

    Vince Flynn is such a good story teller. I'm a trucker and his books really help chew up miles because they really keep me interested in what's going to happen next. I was just looking to see if I missed any and found out I have them all...Damn good listens...

    "Term Limits"

    My first encounter with Vince Flynn was "Consent To Kill" which I found magnificent. So of course I went to his first book to start them in series IE "Term Limits". I found "Term Limits" very well written, exciting and entertaining. I also like George Guidall as a Narrator but I thought this narrator (Nick Sullivan) was just superb. I can't wait to download "Transfer of Power" which is the next in sequence.

    "Good Book"

    Having been EOD and trained with several Seals I can place this in real life and I had a ball with the book. Good story line, filled with intrigue and twists, and not all that far from what some in our present government are doing. Recommend this to everyone it's a good read/listen. you'll enjoy it if you like spy vs spy. The performance was pretty good but he just doesn't sound like a woman but no big deal you get the picture clear enough to remain enjoyable.

    "Not bad for first book"

    I believe this was Vince Flynn's first book so it's not as concise and exciting as some of the more recent ones. Not too bad for a first attempt though. However, the narration doesn't do the book any justice. The narrator makes all the agents sound old, unhealthy and extremely boring. I almost couldn't finish listening to it. Please redo this audiobook with George Guidall as the narrator. I will never buy another Mitch Rapp book not narrated by George Guidall. Thats for sure.

    "An eye opening look at Washington Politics"

    Wow. What a powerful book dealing with the corruption in Washington Politics. It is down-right frightening to see what could happen if a group of disgusted American patriots could do if they decided that political lies and back room deals had gone too far. When they decided to do something about it, it was refreshing at the least. great reading as fiction, but
    it could happen.

    "Unfortunately It's Fiction"

    Clearly the writer was so dissatisfied with how our federal government is being run, he chose to write this provocative story to make his point. Three high ranking congressional persons are killed by unknown assassins just to get people to pay attention to their demands. Even the President is warned that he is well within their reach. If you are one of the many who feel Washington has let us all down with their political arrogance and profligate spending. You will enjoy this book. The bad guys are exposed, and subjected to the potential of a very literal "term limit."

    "We only wish this would happen in real life!"
    What did you love best about Term Limits?

    The plot establishes an underground patriot network resolved to getting the country back on track and do away with entrenched partisan politics. Term Limits it the very best of Vince Flynn!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Congressman Michael O'Rourke and Scott Coleman.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When O'Rourke whipped Stu Garrett in the Oval office.


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

    No any particular moment the overall concept and planning seemed excellently composed.


    Any additional comments?

    Outstanding read. I have 9 Vince Flynn audio books. This should be made into screenplay and a movie.

    "What A Concept! :o)"

    What a concept. We rid Washington of greed and coruption by killing off all the crooks but there is just one problem with that... the list is way too long ! LOL. Seems to me other Flynn fans just want Mitch. I thought this book and it's characters was just as exciting as any of the Rapp books and shows Flynn's ability to take those characters and wrap them into a well crafted plot that didnt really need Mitch. In fact, I would like to see more of Nash and Coleman incorporated into the Rapp books. Even though I am a big Mr G. fan, I thought Nick Sullivan did a great narration. The tone of his voice is very pleasing, he knows how to control his breathing, and is able to match voice pace to story flow. Having read all Flynn's work, I highly recomend this one.

    Yes and I have at least 9 already.


    Have you listened to any of Nick Sullivan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
