Term Limits by Vince Flynn

In a night of shattering brutality, three of Washingtons's most powerful and unscrupulous politicians have been executed with surgical precision. Their assassins, vanishing without a trace, have delivered a shocking ultimatum to the leaders of the American government: set aside petty, partisan politics and restore power to the people, or be held to deadly account. No one, they warn, is out of their reach—not even the president.

A joint FBI-CIA task force reveals that the killers are stealth experts, elite military commandos with the proven capacity to penetrate the tightest security and neutralize any target. But no one knows exaclty 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.

Delivered with the dead-on impact of a sniper's bullet, Term Limits is a tour de force of authenticity and suspense, an all-too-realistic and utterly compelling vision in which the ultimate American ideal—a government of the people—is taken to a devastating extreme.

When you discover Vince Flynn's charachter Mitch Rapp, you first find him in Flynn's second book, 'Transfer of Power'. With Flynn's latest book due out at the end of October that will make 8 Rapp books in the series. That being said, one MUST read Term Limits. Although Rapp is not mentioned in any way in this book, it builds the foundation for Dr. Irene Kennedy and CIA head Stansfield. Dr. Kennedy is a key player in the rest of Flynn's books and this is a great way to fully understand her. There are also other charachters who appear throughout the series that have there origins in 'Term Limits'. I was captured from page one, and have never been disappointed with Mr. Flynn's work

I can count the number of books I have read on one hand for the last 7 years. I have read two of Mr. Flynn's books in the last 4 months. With the first book I read (of course not in the order of the series) Protect and Defend it took me a little bit to finish but was really good. This Novel had me from the start and I finished it in 6 days!! Again, I am not a reader by any means, but the plot of the book could not be any closer to what is almost (ALMOST) happening with our country and politics today!!! I would recommend anyone trying to get the NON-READER to pick up a book, Choose this one!!! I am actually looking forward to getting all the books of the Mitch Rupp Series now!!! Thank you Mr. Flynn for giving me something to ENJOY!!!

This book is an incredible first offering from the author! It held my interest and kept me in suspense from beginning to end. I had a very difficult time putting it down until I finished it. I highly recommend it!

Typical excellent novel by Vince Flynn. However, the amount of typos are the most I've seen in an ebook to date. I find that extremely bothersome.

this is a book to read because of the time we are living in..even though it was written a few years ago, it goes along with what is happening in Washington DC today with our elected officials...a little scarcy to think of how Washington does work in real life...it is a novel but very interesting...just change the names and it would be today's Washington DC

Term Limits is highly readable and thought-provoking in a creative and yet unthinkable way. Term Limits captures the present political dysfunction in DC, and it has a powerful message: set aside partisan politics and restore power to the peopleor else.... Why this hasn't been made into a major motion picture is incomprehensible.

One of the most exciting books I've read. I will continue to read through the entire series. I love his writing, characters. He keeps your interest from the very beginning of the book.

This is the first book, introducing you to many of the key players in subsequent books by this author. I thought it was great. Plenty of action, great plot, and really kept you guessing. The end was magnificent. A must read for anyone who likes books on the cold war, spies and intrigue. Plus, lots of bad guys get whacked, what could be better?

All congress needs to read this book and limit themselves to true term limits. Serving the country should not be a career make them work and live within the laws they create

This book is so suspenseful and fits today's political environment even though it was written in the 1990's. I couldn't put the book down and once I finished I went out and bought the next four books. You have no idea what you are missing until you read this book.

My first Vince Flynn book, truly enjoyed it, will be reading more of his books!

I read this book because it is the first in the series. Many of the characters appear in books after this one but Mitch Rapp is not in it!I kept waiting for him to come in and fix everything like he always does. I was disappointed. Mitch Rapp enters in book two and he really is the glue that holds the stories together.Keep reading the series. Memorial Day is my favorite. All others are well done and enjoyable.

Vince Flynn¿s political thriller, Term Limits, has tapped into a large vein of American thinking.
In one night the political fat cats of Washington DC got a shot across their bow. Three of the top corrupt politicians were executed with the precision of smart bombs ¿ leaving not a trace of forensic evidence that could lead the FBI in any direction.
The following morning the assassins deliver an ultimatum to the government. In their text they quote from Thomas Jefferson¿s words, `that when any form of government becomes destructive¿ it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government.¿
We are invoking this right to rise up and alter the course of our government. You have had your chance to correct America¿s course and you have failed.
A joint task force was formed including FBI, CIA and Military Intelligence to meet at the White House and develop a plan to cope with the grave situation. The first meeting had little success and ended in squabbles and finger pointing, done mainly by the president¿s chief of staff in order to deflect blame from the White House.
A young congressman and former Marine, Michael O¿Rourke is the first to put some of the pieces together and he leads the reader from hypothetical questions to undisputable evidence.
Flynn has shined the light on the muck and mire of Washington¿s Foggy Bottom and gives us a glimpse of our present political class.
When you get to the end of this fast paced story about corruption you want to stand up and cheer for the good guys.

I'm actually originally a fantasy genre fan - but this political thriller got me hooked into those books of intrigue. After I read TERM LIMITS, I read the rest of Flynn's books as soon as I could. The plot is fast, fun, and crazy dangerous, and the characters are so fascinating. Scott Coleman is by far one of Flynn's best creations.

From page 1 until the end this was just a nailbiter! I gurantee you will love it!

Vince Flynn's Term Limits reads faster and better than Tom Clancy. He jumps right into the action in chapter one and never lets up, without the detail overload Clancy usually piles on. This is professional plotting and writing guaranteed to entertain.

RIPPED FROM TODAY’S HEADLINES I intended, somewhere in this review to say — “Here is a book ripped from today’s headlines, EXCEPT no one in real life is going around targeting U.S. senators and representatives.” Only to wake up this morning to … TERM LIMITS segues from today’s tragic event in that it chronicles what happens when a group of retired SEALS, who lost several compatriots in a black-ops mission, because of one loose-lipped member of Congress, sets out not only for revenge but to get the malfunctioning government back on track by assassinating two senators and a representative, with plans to kill as many as they can to get the job gets done. What with U.S. government corruption rife in this book, including in the White House, it’s often difficult to tell the good guys from the bad, or know for which side one should be rooting. Compared to some of the books of this genre that I’ve read, lately, this one kept me fast page-turning more than most. If, at the end, I felt it all dragged on a bit longer than necessary, in tying up all the loose ends, I enjoyed it enough to check out more of this author’s books for future reads.
