This is one of those rare books that once you start reading is hard to put down. While at the same time it is one of those books that you prolong finishing because you know that it will be a long time before you read another great book. Without giving away the plot, the basis of this novel is that the President of the U.S. may be a murderer, which is a fantastic plot theme. As usual, the author develops a number of interesting characters, some great plot twists and flawlessly moves the story along drawing you deeper and deeper in. A great book has to have a great ending and this one definely does. I loved this book so much that I will read it again in the future and savor each sentence all over again. Thank you Mr. Margolin for a great read that I would strongly recommend to book clubs and indiviual readers.

I got this as a free ebook download and I would gladly have paid for it. Absolutely loved it. Twists, turns and fast action, I didn't want to put it down. Excellent! --K--

I loved this book to the last page. This book has so many twists and turns that it makes it so intense up to the last page. The book is hard to follow at the beginning, in fact for the first 1/4 of the book. I love the way that Margolin sets up the ending and the various turns that this novel takes. Margolin adds the right amount of action and suspense while giving the reader and the characters the right amount of information to keep them turning the page. There is a lot of profanity, so if that's not your thing don't read this book. The suspense made me keep turning the page (well, hitting the next page button on my nook ;)). The plot is well developed and will keep you guessing until the very end. You'll think you have it figured out in the middle, but I guarantee that you don't know who the killer is!

This was the first book I downloaded on the nook I received as a gift for Mother's Day, and it was a Free Friday download! I am more of a historical romance kind of girl, so if it hadn't been free, I probably wouldn't have read it. I am so glad I did. I loved it. Kept me on the edge of my chair. The author really let you get to know the characters. I liked the way there were several stories going on in the beginning and they all came together so well at the end.

Every week on Free Friday, we all end up finding a "review" by the notorious Harriet Klausner which is really just a 3-4 Nook-page synopsis of the book. Solution: Go to the BN website, find her review and mark it "spam" and/or "unhelpful." Eventually, they will stop showing on the website and MAYBE BN will start taking our issues with her seriously. Harriet, if you happen to read this since I put your name in the subject, I am sorry that you are likely an old and lonely woman who wants attention. Go join a senior center or something. Your "book reviews" are nothing more than elementary school book reports and are not wanted. Now, for the book: I am usually not a fan of the pseudo-political thriller but I think Phillip Margolin does a very good job of melding the murder investigation with just enough political intrigue to make it work. I think it is worth your time.

I got this on my Nook as part of a Free Friday download, so not only is a free book good, but when then the book is a great read, it's the perfect deal. This book took a little bit to reel me in and at first I was afraid it wasn't going to happen. I'm glad I stuck with it because once it does grab you it's worth the wait. The characters don't necessarily stand out but they're interesting and the author does a good job of keeping them and their storylines fresh throughout the book. Sometimes I'll forget who someone is or what their role is if they disappear from the story for a while. The ending ties almost everything together. Some closure seems to be implied but it would have been nice to see it in writing. This is far from a comlaint because I really did like the book and would recommend buying it. This download also came with an excerpt from the author's new book that was just released. I'll be checking that out too. Very satisfying read

This is the first book that I read by Philip Margolin and I was impressed with his writing style. The story was face paced and never dull. Unfortunately, the end was a bit predictable but still worth reading. Will look at other books by this author.

I am a voracious reader who has read many authors of many genres. I had never read Phillip Margolin but, needing something to read, I picked up Executive Privilege in a grocery store of all unlikely places. I must say I was completely won over by his exciting style and level of intrigue. I, too, plan to read as many more of his works as I can find and I don't expect to be disappointed. I feel he easily fits into the cliff-hanger category of writers and recommend him as a responsible and exciting author.

Good read, and great character development

I enjoyed the detective work and the way eventually a lawyer, cop, and FBI agent come to the same conclusion in the case. Able to make connection on how the characters felt in their experiences and past. Great read, and it was free!

Novels such as this are such gems to come across! Turn off your Blackberry, send your spouse out of town, and be prepared for a nonstop read, because you WON'T be able to walk away until you finish. I've enjoyed Mr. Margolin's other novels, but this has a freshness and rapid-but-understandable pace that you look for. Just hope someone has purchased the movie rights!

First time reading this author and I must say I am a fan! Enjoy the weaving story lines between characters. Phillip is an amazing story teller, and I am eager to read the other books that follow the fiery red headed main character Dana Cutler. She's a private investigator with a knack for catching criminals. Great read!

Margolin has another winner. It's an easy read...with an emotion grabbing topic...topped off with a somewhat surprising...but satisfying...ending. Too bad today's reality hasn't involved more fictional conclusions.

This book is a really good page turner.

A good fun book with a lot of good twists. Had not read any of the authors books before, but will read others in the future. Makes you wonder about what really does go on in the White House of our great country. The ending is a bit of a surprise. Enjoy this one.

I love his books. The are suspenseful with a twist at the end. If you are looking for a talented writer of suspense Phillip Margolin is the one!

What a roller coaster of a book, I loved it. Who did it? Was it the President of the US? It couldn't have been. I read this in one sitting. I won't give a way any juicy details, but as I got halfway though the book, I knew who did it. Read it, I think you will enjoy it. Phillip Margolin never disappoints.

Even given its shortcomings in terms of plausibility, Executive Privilege is a fun read. We all like to think that there are shenanigans going on with the White House that we don't know about, so here's one to titillate those concerns.

This was a great Free Friday pick. Well-written, interesting characters and plot development, clever twists. I would like to read more from this author. This is the first book in the Dana Cutler series, which surprised me as her backstory seems like it would have been developed in a preceding novel.

This was an OK read. I was pretty sure early on that I knew how the book would end. I did enjoy the way contemporary political situations were a part of the story. The book was enjoyable but I was not on the edge of my seat.

This was a fast-moving thriller with some great characters and an all-too-plausible (well, sort of) story line. I had two problems with it. First, I figured out whodunnit less than halfway through the book. Second, The insipid epilogue, all by itself, brought my rating down one whole star.
