Publisher's Summary

When a retired colleague dies of an apparent suicide, ex - Secret Service agent Joe Reeder knows there must be far more to the story. Why did the man leave a desperate message for Reeder moments before dying? And what could possibly make such a seasoned veteran fear for his life?

FBI Special Agent Patti Rogers has a mystery of her own to solve: she's leading a task force investigating a brutal series of similar but seemingly unconnected murders across the DC area. Are they serial killings or something even more sinister?

Could Reeder and Rogers be tracking down different facets of the same conspiracy? And how do the continued assassination attempts on a presidential hopeful figure into an unprecedented attack on the heart of government?

The answers to these questions are uncovered in this riveting sequel to the bestselling Supreme Justice.

    "Great series and narration.."



    So, the second book had the same people as the third (which I read first) and some of them die in the third book so this was kind of crazy to me to read about people who were already dead. You really can’t read the third book then go backwards. If there had been three different stories with three sets of characters it would have been better.

    I think this might have been my favorite one of the three. The mystery lasted longer than the others’ did and at 89% they still didn’t know who the blond killer was. The readers did, but his name was all you knew. You had no idea who he worked for or why he killed Adam Benjamin’s entire protection detail. It was fun trying to figure it all out before the end. It was interesting the chase to find and stop the bad guy from blowing up the Capitol building on the night of the State of the Union address. There were about 350 people in the building and it would have killed everyone, if Reeder hadn’t stopped him.

    I’m sure the author saw something in making the main FBI agent, Patti Rogers, gay or bi-sexual, and then becoming interested in a transvestite, but if you’re not filling the book with sex what’s the point? And there is NO sex in these books. That part of the storyline filled the books with pages but they were unnecessary pages. IMO..

    Again, as with the other two books, there was a LOT of head shots and blood and brain matter. You have to be NOT bothered by that kind of thing to really enjoy these books.

    Like I said, no sex. But the F-bomb was used 14 times.

    AS to the narration: Dan John Miller did a really great job on all these books, both in voices and emotions.

    "Could have been a 5 star book!"

    Fate of the Union is a political thriller set in the not too distant future. With the two major US political parties having been captured by their extreme wings, this book is a call for a move toward political moderation; as such, this book is best viewed as a political purpose-written novel. The novel is, by the way, Book 2 of the Reeder and Rogers series.

    Fate of the Union is an excellent listen that could have been much better had the very experienced author not been so sloppy in his research. There are multiple misquotes, improperly attributed quotes, and factual errors about things and places including a reference to the safety on a Glock pistol. After a half dozen such obvious errors I found myself spending more time picking out errors than paying attention to the plot. Max Allan Collins has been successfully writing and selling novels for more than 40 years; he's the guy who gave us Mickey Spillane, Dick Tracy, and Nathan Heller. He should be held to a high standard.
