Publisher's Summary

The secret terrorist organization that came within a heartbeat of installing its agent as President of the United States in Executive Actions is back with a new (and more deadly) plot to destabilize the U.S. government. The mugging and murder of a female White House staffer leads Secret Service agent Scott Roarke to the elusive and mysterious assassin who manages to always stay one step ahead of him. But as the plot unfolds, new clues about the assassin's past come to light, and they just may give him the tools he needs to catch his quarry.

Things happen in threes

Great series and it never missed a beat, the characters get bigger and bolder with every book. The author never stops leaking new information about all the characters and he invites you to look into the characters thoughts and figure out what to do next

Great performance by John McLain

Another great performance by JohnMcLain, he is the reason I selected this book. Book was a little long and hard to keep up with.

Captivating! Exciting!

What a great book! Exciting, educational, and really makes you think about both historical and contemporary aspects of our society. Will definitely read more from this author. One of the best series I’ve ever encountered!

10/10

the storyline is impossible but it's so exquisitely well done that you can't stop listening and it becomes believable.

one thing I appreciate is it the author never stays on one storyline for too long or Too Short of an amount of time

I love this series!

The novels in this series start a bit slowly and they are long, but they are more than worth the time. Executive Treason in Book 2 in the 3 novel Executive series. Executive Command is up next in the series, but I plan to listen to at least one other book first.

The Executive series could be considered suspense thrillers or espionage thrillers, but I now believe they are best characterized is political thrillers. The novels deal with the position of president in the US in a dangerous and unpredictable world where major issues are sure to occur. The issue of order of replacement is faced head on in real world crisis situations. The possibility of foreign governments meddling in US elections is another topic explored in depth. The subject matter and the way the author handles it is fascinating. And there are periods of very intense suspense. The primary characters are very well developed.

Narration has been criticized in some reviews. From my perspective John McLain does a superb job.

Good but not Great

This is a continuation of the conspiracy that started in the first book. I recommend you do the series in order (I have listened to 3 at this time and won't be listening to the 4th). The characters have enough development that you have a feel for them but the development feels a bit shallow. We are told what people think or how people feel rather than shown. The author drops in paragraphs of reach and information at times, which is interesting, but sometimes interrupts the flow.

Good story w/an obnoxious character who talks alot

To get thru the irritating parts, skip fwd. Set speed at 110 for narrator quality

Great reviews convinced me to give it a go BUT

Would you be willing to try another book from Gary Grossman? Why or why not?

Doubt it

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Great reviews convinced me to give it a go BUT 1.5 hours later... It just didn't keep my attention and just seemed to drone on..

Maybe its me but I've got over 100 books under my belt listened too

A book I had a hard time picking up.

What would have made Executive Treason better?

A little less detail, a little fewer characters and a different reader.

Has Executive Treason turned you off from other books in this genre?

At least from this reader! I am about 15 hrs into the book and I could not even tell you what it is about. This book is a cure for insomnia!

How could the performance have been better?

The reader was ok in character but the narration drives crazy. He needs to get away from short, choppy, monotone sentences all with the exact same inflection on the last word.

Any additional comments?

This story takes place on a lot of fronts with a lot of characters read by a monotone reader. I do not expect to finish it but I am the type that always wants to see what is around the next corner so we will see.

Another intricate plot follow-on that will prevent you going to sleep if listening in bed

Far too complicated

The lack of pauses between scenes was confusing; the characters world-wide were difficult to follow; the four-letter words offputting; the reader! Don't get me started - he sounded just like the man who does trailers for Hollywood action movies. Maybe this book is aimed at male readers more than female, but the details of guns, knives and throat cutting was very offputting and I abandoned it at Chapter 6.
