Publisher's Summary

Shortly after Army lawyer Sean Drummond starts working for the Office of Special Projects, a CIA cell which handles the most dangerous threats, the White House Chief of Staff is found brutally murdered. A note left by the killer promises more victims, including the President. Teaming up with a beautiful colleague to try to stop the assassin, Sean begins the investigation. The killer is stalking the campaign trail, apparently driven by a $500 million bounty on the President's head. When a dramatic hostage rescue culminates in an intense shootout, Sean realizes law enforcement's horrible miscalculation and what to do about it.

    "The President's Assassin--A Killer Read!"

    The President's Assassin is one of the more enjoyable picks that I've had from Audible.
    Scott Brick does his usual fine job of narration.
    While there seems to be a brief reference to events of another Haig novel--which I'm looking forward to reading--this one is entirely self-contained.
    Characters are nicely developed and there is adequate description, but the story is exciting, suspenseful, and moves briskly with no risk of boredom.
    The irreverent wit of the principal character/story teller will likely evoke a few chuckles. Start listening when you have plenty of time because you will have trouble stopping before the denouement!

    "My first time for this author--I'll try some more"

    I found this book enjoyable. There were well-developed characters and a plot that held my interest. I didn't anticipate the ending which made it all the better. I'd say this is a worthwhile read.

    "Haig readers"

    Regarding the "question for Haig readers:" If you like Nelson deMille, you'll no doubt like Haig. If there are not enough quality audible reviews for a book, I usually look through the amazon reviews to see how the book fared with print readers. In this case, very well. Several reviewers admitted this was their first encounter with Haig, yet did not regret having "started in the middle." Hope this helps.

    "EXCELLENT"

    I have not read this author before and was sort of unsure as to buy or not, but after reading all the reviews I decided to. GREAT STORY . If you like to read Stephen Coonts and Nelson Demille, then this book is for you. I usually like to start at the beginning of a series but with this book you do not have to and you do not feel that you are missing anything. I would recommend this book.

    "A very compelling thriller"

    The President's Asassin is a rivetting thriller that is guaranteed to keep you guessing till the end. THe novel is humorous through the cynical smart alec character of Sean Drummond with a brilliant narration by Scott Brick. If you liked The Lion's Game (Unabridged) (also narrated by Scott Brick), you are sure to love this one!

    "The President's Assassin"

    Excellent! Held my interest, lot's of reality about politics and the war - you could tell the author knew what he was talking about from experience. Also very funny! I laughed out loud several times. I highly recommened this book and the entire series.

    "I loved this book"

    Brain Haig's story,prose, humor and sarcasm make for great listening and entertainment. I can't wait for his next book. Each of his Sean Dummond novels have been equally entertaining.

    "Terrific Plot"

    This is a very well written and expertly narrated book. The plot is thoughtful and written with an insider's eye for detail. The DC bureaucratic infighting is told very well. The principal character is tightly drawn, and even though to an extent a first-person narration destroys some of the "will he survive" tension, it was still a very enjoyable book. If you like plot twists and you appreciate an inventive approach, you'll like this book.

    "Excellent book"

    Haig's book had me ignoring my cell phone and sitting in my driveway just to inch a little closer to the 'end game.' I will definitely be getting another Brian Haig book again very soon.

    I don't know if there's a book that narrator Scott Brick could ever do an injustice to. He's truly masterful at his craft. If you liked this book, check out Robert Ludlum's "The Company" (also narrated by Brick) if it's still available.
