Publisher's Summary

A riveting novel by MWA Grand Master Award winner Max Allan Collins.

In Eastern Europe four CIA agents are dead - geopolitical pawns caught in border dispute cross fire. Why were they there? Who sent them? Not even the President knows.

Back in Washington, the Secretary of the Interior dies from an apparent allergic shock. As details emerge, so do suspicions that she was murdered.

Investigating their respective cases, ex - Secret Service agent Joe Reeder and FBI Special Situations Task Force leader Patti Rogers recognize a dangerous conspiracy is in play. When suspects and government contacts are killed off with expert precision, their worst fears are confirmed. As the country edges closer and closer to war, Reeder and Rogers must protect the President - and each other - from an unseen enemy who's somehow always one step ahead.

The stakes have never been higher, against killers who might be anywhere, and Reeder and Rogers have no one to trust but each other.

Great Book and Series. Excellent Narration!

This series has been really good. Exciting, mysterious, entertaining and some action thrown in.

I really like Reeder and Rogers. I like that they are friends and don't cross that line. The friendship and trust between these two is great.

The story line and plot was great. I really enjoy a good conspiracy story. There is a lot of great dialogue throughout the entire book. This was also very well written that it didn't get confusing. It all flowed very well.

As for the narration. It is excellent. Dan John Miller does a fantastic job on all the voices including the female voices.

I can totally recommend all these books in this series.

Exciting story and great narration..



This book started just how I DON’T like a book to start: you get to know someone and within minutes they’re all dead. UGH! I hate when authors do that.

Anyway, this is about those four CIA agents sent to Azbekistan, AFTER the President expressly ordered NO ONE to be sent there because everyone was sure the Russians were about to attack, which they did. And it’s was about Joe Reeder, who owns ABC Security, and Patti Rogers who works for the FBI attempting to figure out if the four CIA agents have anything to do with the murder of Secretary of the Interior Amanda Yellich in Washington DC.

This was exciting from the very beginning and really didn’t let up. But it was kind of scary. LOL… It showed what our politicians are capable of.

There was nothing romantic about this book so if reviews tell you there was they’re crazy. The F-bomb was used 8 times.

The only disappointing thing about this was the fact that you had NO idea what anyone looked like. Oh, once in a while it would say someone was balding or fat or someone was African American or someone had curly hair, but not what any one person looked like. So, Joe, Patti, Miggie, Hardesy, Ivanek, Lucas and Wade could have all looked alike for all I know. So, it lost a star for that.

As to the narration: Dan John Miller did a pretty good job with the narration. I think mostly he had such a nice reading voice that I wasn’t bothered by any lack of something. I would definitely listen to him again.

Executive Order/Action Packed

As the book started, I questioned if I wanted to continue the books I'd thought I was going to get a insider's look into the Capitol. But it wasn't long that the author provided just that. The White House, the CIA, FBI, and the Secret Service all participated in the action packed story of an attempted over through of the government of the United States. I could hardly stop listening!
