Summary

The secret terrorist organization that came within a heartbeat of installing its agent as President of the United States in Executive Actions is back with a new (and more deadly) plot to destabilize the U.S. government. The mugging and murder of a female White House staffer leads Secret Service agent Scott Roarke to the elusive and mysterious assassin who manages to always stay one step ahead of him. But as the plot unfolds, new clues about the assassin's past come to light, and they just may give him the tools he needs to catch his quarry.

Far too complicated

The lack of pauses between scenes was confusing; the characters world-wide were difficult to follow; the four-letter words offputting; the reader! Don't get me started - he sounded just like the man who does trailers for Hollywood action movies. Maybe this book is aimed at male readers more than female, but the details of guns, knives and throat cutting was very offputting and I abandoned it at Chapter 6.

Things happen in threes

Great series and it never missed a beat, the characters get bigger and bolder with every book. The author never stops leaking new information about all the characters and he invites you to look into the characters thoughts and figure out what to do next

Great performance by John McLain

Another great performance by JohnMcLain, he is the reason I selected this book. Book was a little long and hard to keep up with.

Good but not Great

This is a continuation of the conspiracy that started in the first book. I recommend you do the series in order (I have listened to 3 at this time and won't be listening to the 4th). The characters have enough development that you have a feel for them but the development feels a bit shallow. We are told what people think or how people feel rather than shown. The author drops in paragraphs of reach and information at times, which is interesting, but sometimes interrupts the flow.

Good story w/an obnoxious character who talks alot

To get thru the irritating parts, skip fwd. Set speed at 110 for narrator quality

Captivating! Exciting!

What a great book! Exciting, educational, and really makes you think about both historical and contemporary aspects of our society. Will definitely read more from this author. One of the best series I’ve ever encountered!

10/10

the storyline is impossible but it's so exquisitely well done that you can't stop listening and it becomes believable.

one thing I appreciate is it the author never stays on one storyline for too long or Too Short of an amount of time

I love this series!

The novels in this series start a bit slowly and they are long, but they are more than worth the time. Executive Treason in Book 2 in the 3 novel Executive series. Executive Command is up next in the series, but I plan to listen to at least one other book first.

The Executive series could be considered suspense thrillers or espionage thrillers, but I now believe they are best characterized is political thrillers. The novels deal with the position of president in the US in a dangerous and unpredictable world where major issues are sure to occur. The issue of order of replacement is faced head on in real world crisis situations. The possibility of foreign governments meddling in US elections is another topic explored in depth. The subject matter and the way the author handles it is fascinating. And there are periods of very intense suspense. The primary characters are very well developed.

Narration has been criticized in some reviews. From my perspective John McLain does a superb job.

Could have been

I’m a little tired of arrogant, elitist authors who consider most Americans to be uneducated sheep who follow any cause with blind enthusiasm. Perhaps the author is drinking the kool-aid of another flavor.
