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: an incident in his own past with explosive implications for his country’s future… Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 2/20/2014

    " Very fun read! It's like an episode of 24. It has it all--corrupt politicians, clean politicians, the FBI, the CIA, government-hired assassins, etc. Light, non-taxing reading, but very fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob Harris | 2/16/2014

    " Great book! Scary plot (maybe a little too close to reality). Fast paced. Ulta right wing perspective. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marybeth | 2/13/2014

    " good - vince flynn books are fun to read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonathan Spendlove | 1/31/2014

    " Page turner. Didn't stray too much from the story, which was nice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/30/2014

    " I loved this book, well written, well thought out, and I admit I liked the idea of politicians being held accountable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abel Keogh | 1/20/2014

    " Though written a decade ago, a lot of the issues in this book apply to today. Was a little disappointed that the author didn't come up with any solutions. Aside from that, a fine read. Great plot, lots of twists and turns, etc. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anup Marahatta | 1/13/2014

    " Probably because it was his first book, not as taut and gripping as his books on Mitch Rapp. But it is a great read nonetheless. His portrayal of politics in America was very good, and his character development was awesome. This is "a-not-to-be-missed" kind of book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darren | 1/11/2014

    " Very entertaining even though I don't support the methods the major characters condoned. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stuart | 1/8/2014

    " Politically the guy is further to the right than the proverbial Attila the Hun... but if you like vigilante, flag waving shoot 'em up fiction, Flynn's work is fast and furious reading. This comment applies across the board to all of his work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe Vitucci | 12/26/2013

    " far-fetched, but interesting. the part about the politicians was probably right on - for the most part they only care about themselves. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 12/8/2013

    " I loved this book! Very interesting, who-done-it in the political world. Must say I agree with Vince's politics. Love him...have seen him on a couple of interviews. He has the insider track with what really happens in Washington!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chris | 10/19/2013

    " I hated this book. I rarely hate books, but this one was horrible. The main protagonist constantly rationalizes the use of political assassination as a reasonable course of action. Not my cup of tea. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 CLM | 10/12/2013

    " A quick and entertaining read (and topical) but provided no incentive to root for any character - all were unappealing. I was reading an old ARC I must have picked up years ago so hope the grammatical errors were fixed, but overall I found the book poorly edited and repetitive in places. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim Bowers | 7/25/2013

    " First V. Flynn book and it was great. I am working my way through the rest now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel Avery | 5/22/2013

    " Very entertaining and at the same time makes you ask the question... "What if?" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelekolio Malakina | 5/11/2013

    " Good thriller. I'm looking forward to the subsequent "Mitch Rapp" series that followed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eleanor Swensen | 4/9/2013

    " intriguing also made me angry "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bronsont | 2/28/2013

    " Goodness, this might just be the best Vince Flynn book ever, only problem with it is that I have now read them all! I want more!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sonnet | 2/23/2013

    " Wow, checked this out at the library randomly before a work trip and LOVED it. His flow of writing was excellent. Explained complicated concepts in an easy to understand, interesting way. If I come across any of his other writing I will snag it right up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 SherryA | 2/4/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie Bollard | 7/10/2012

    " I was kind of ho hum on this book. I liked the premise, but I just thought that the ending had some pacing problems and I didn't ever feel like I couldn't put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joel Schaefer | 12/26/2011

    " A great thriller with a political back ground. Very enjoyable. A fun and easy read. Don't start unless you have the time to get to the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 12/21/2011

    " Interesting read, it was written in 1997 but read like today. The premise is that the political and economic climate is bad and some people decide to fix it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Ball | 9/20/2011

    " Non stop action from start to finish. Makes you really think about politics and where the country is going. "

    " I enjoy the pacing but have to set aside my feelings when some of the conservative rationales keep popping up. Otherwise a good yarn. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adam | 4/10/2011

    " Guys get "ahold" of yourselves. This book is not that good. I see the point of out of control congressmen wasting hard earned freedom without regard. Too drawn out...made up words...poor grammar. Just could have been better. Think I'm finally done with Vince Flynn. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kona | 4/5/2011

    " Very intense and fast paced. It was a tad long (but not in an extraneous way), but otherwise a great read! "

    " My very favorite Vince Flynn novel! "

    " Truly awful. Good for an ad-hoc napkin. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 2/25/2011

    " A quick read for the airplane - good plot but not particularly well written. Actually 2 1/2 stars but I was feeling generous. Didn't actually finish but it's not worth it. Time for something new. "

About the Author
Author Vince Flynn

Vince Flynn (1966–2013) was born in St. Paul, Minnesota.

He earned a sterling reputation for his research and prescient warnings about the rise of radical Islamic fundamentalism and terrorism.
