Term Limits is rated 4.77777777777778 out of 5 by 18.
“The voice of today’s postmodern thriller generation” (The Providence Journal), Vince Flynn rocketed onto bestseller lists nationwide with this “ingenious” (Florida Times-Union) fusion of DC politics and riveting suspense.

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 US 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…

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good book Mitch Rapp is absent from this story but there are many familiar faces from Flynn's world. The story is good, the villain vile, and the hero; well he is there. While I liked the story overall being a fan of the Rapp stories made me want him to participate. The book is solid on its own but I did find myself missing Mitch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Retired insurance exec An interesting read, but with mixed emotions. Too many characters needed severe penalties under our laws, but escaped with only a "naughty boy" slap on the wrist. I sincerely hope

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Term Limits This was a wonderful book. Although fiction it is very plausible for these things to happen and I believe they happen more than we know. This is a very good read.

Read from the Book

Chapter OneThe old wood cabin sat alone, surrounded by trees and darkness. The shades were drawn, and a dog lay motionless on the front porch. A thin stream of smoke flowed out of the chimney and headed west, across the rural Maryland countryside toward Washington, D.C. Inside, a man sat silently in front of the fireplace, shoving stacks of paper into the hot flames.The papers were the product of months of tedious and meticulous work. Each sheet represented hour upon hour of surveillance notes, in-depth subject profiles, and maps of neighborhoods throughout the D.C. metropolitan area. He knew when the police patrolled, when the newspapers were delivered, who jogged and at what time, and most importantly, where his targets slept and what time they awoke.He and his men had stalked them for months, watching and waiting, patiently discerning which part of their daily routine could be exploited -- and when they would be most vulnerable. His strong hands reached for the fire and stopped short. Letting them hang near the flames, he flexed them straight, then pulled them into tight fists. The men he had been stalking had sent him to some of the most obscure places on the face of the planet to kill people who were deemed a threat to the national security of the United States of America.He had lost track of the number of people he had killed in the service of his country. He had not intentionally blocked the tally from his mind, it was just something he had never bothered to calculate
