Great action, suspense with political intrigue. The major politicos were narcissistic and self-aggrandizing -- all believed their own view of the world to be correct. Yep, just like the real world! This scenario; however, is chilling--three politicians murdered and the rest held ransom to the budget. The budget? You gotta be ralphin' me. This whole story revolves around pork. Really? Could our leadership really be held hostage? It was a fun read/listen and I think that I'll try some more Vince Flynn. ( )

Very good book that provides the backdrop for his popular Mitch Rapp series. ( )

How do D.C. politics work? Reading this book will give you a pretty good idea, you get the feeling you are privy to an insider look at the U.S. political machine. Partisan politics and the budget are the antagonists in this story. There is plenty of action and political intrigue for die hard fans, with a plot that is interesting although void of a major plot twist. Did I figure out the whodunit? Yes, but I was taken there by way of a thrilling tale! ( )

Good story, lots of suspense, in spite of some implausible situations. ( )

Vince Flynn reads alot like Baldacci in my mind. Great action, suspense, detail-oriented and often with thought-provoking political intrigue. Really well written. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0671023187, Mass Market Paperback)

Taking America back...one politician at a time TERM LIMITS 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.... "Ingenious....Outpaces anything recently published, including Baldacci and Clancy." -- Florida Times-Union Includes an excerpt from Memorial Day, Vince Flynn's electrifying new hardcover
