Rock Sold Thriller That Reads Like a Movie
Line of Succession is about what would happen if an unpopular American President's military advisors aligned with a private security militia like Blackwater to decapitate the nation's top leaders and take over the government. The title refers to the line of Presidential succession that dictates that if the President and Veep are both killed, the next in line is the Speaker of the House, and Senate Majority leader, and so on. (one of my favorite lines is when one of the Generals suggests just assassinating the President, and the other General says "you're not thinking big enough.") The book is full of incredible dialogue that is often funny without being campy.
To say Line of Succession has "twists and turns" would be a gross understatement. In on the plot are leaders from Iran, who have their own agenda regarding controlling water supplies that are currently held by Israel. There are some parallels to Oliver North's secret arms deals with Iran.
All in all, a very solid military/conspiracy thriller.

Gripping, Intense and Believable
This book will keep your attention right from the beginning. The changes from the ensemble characters are seamless and well paced. Some of the book was clearly predictable, but not so much that it ruined the story. The only major failing of the book was the ending...left a little to be desired...Was this review helpful?
