Kurzbeschreibung

1. Juli 1999
Taking America back...one politician at a time TERM LIMITS In one bloody night, three of Washington's most powerful politicians are executed with surgical precision. Their assassins then deliver a shocking ultimatum to the American government: set aside partisan politics and restore power to the people. No one, they warn, is out of their reach -- not even the president. A joint FBI-CIA task force reveals the killers are elite military commandos, but no one knows exactly 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.... "Ingenious....Outpaces anything recently published, including Baldacci and Clancy." -- Florida Times-Union Includes an excerpt from Memorial Day, Vince Flynn's electrifying new hardcover

Mehr über den Autor

1990 bewarb sich Vince Flynn, geboren 1966 in Minnesota, beim United States Marine Corps - er wollte Kampfflieger werden. Kurz vor Beginn der Officers Canditate School wurde er allerdings aus medizinischen Gründen ausgemustert. Während der nächsten zwei Jahre bemühte er sich, diese Entscheidung rückgängig zu machen. Gleichzeitig dachte er zum ersten Mal daran, ein Buch zu schreiben - obwohl bei ihm bereits in der Grundschule Dyslexie festgestellt worden war. In den folgenden Jahren schrieb Vince Flynn tagsüber und arbeitete nachts als Barmann. Der Erfolg ließ nicht lange auf sich warten: Seit Ende der 90er-Jahre sind seine Politthriller regelmäßig auf den Bestenlisten zu finden. Seit 2005 ist er auch als Berater der TV-Serie "24" tätig.

Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

Richard Marcinkobest-selling author of the "Rogue Warrior(R)" series"Term Limits" is a four-star, in-your-face, butt-kicking, bull's eye of a political thriller, unlike anything I've ever read! Vince Flynn's debut is fast-paced and unforgettable. Tom Clancy, watch your back!

Synopsis

Three of Washington's most powerful and least scrupulous politicians are executed with surgical precision by a team of military commandos demanding that the government restore power to the people, and only one congressman can stop them.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A interesting look at alternative political actions 23. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The author assured me while autographing the book that if a person enjoyed novels on politics and the accompanying intrigue that I would find this one to rate right up there with Clancy. I thought this to be awful confident for a literary unknown, but after finishing it by staying up until the wee hours of the morning I found this unknown to be right and am patiently waiting for the next novel. The story itself is entirely plausible considering the current political situation in this country
The scary part is that it shows how such things could easily be accomplished. Change names, a few titles here and there to match todays politics to the story line and there you have it, Term Limits. Is this Alternative History ? A novel and author people can learn from.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A thril a minute 19. April 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Though Minnesota Congressman Michael O'Rourke is a newcomer to the House of Representatives, he already abhors the under the table wheeling and dealing. So when a terrorist group assassinates three corrupt Congressmen, most of DC and the country are shocked. Michael isn't part of the majority, who sympathizes with their causes to balance the budget, cut taxes, and eliminate the federal corruption at any cost. Subsequently, other politicians are also killed.
All the president's men have currently one interest: to keep their jobs by getting their man reelected. Being an opportunistic group and lacking basic morals, they soon embark on a series of murders that parallel the extremists with one difference. The president's men are eliminating the opposition to their man, while the extremists are eliminating anyone who is not part of the solution. Michael quickly realizes what is going on and even who the extremists are, but by keeping quiet he secretlt supports their cause.
Fans of governmental conspiracies and anti-DC fervor will love Vince Flynn's debut political thriller. Though clearly a jingoistic outlook, the fast-paced story line is crisp and interesting. The characters, especially Michael, appear a bit naive, but that actually adds to the non-stop excitement. Fans of political thrillers like those of Tom Clancy will love TERM LIMITS and want more work from Mr. Flynn.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A feel-good novel for our times 28. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
TERM LIMITS will appeal to those who think that most technothrillers unrealistically portray the government as full of selfless public servants. As in UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES by John Ross, the protagonists of this novel take creative and daring steps to make the statist government slugs realize just how very vulnerable they are. My only real complaint about this work is the author's decision to have the heroes be members of the Special Forces. The military is the last place you'd look for individual freedom, and career soldiers have actively chosen to live in this culture of control. If Flynn had made his protagonists a handful of fed-up civilians, it would have been much more plausible. If you can set aside this glaring lapse of logic, this book will make you chuckle, and you'll probably finish it in one sitting.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Totally engrossing. You just can't put it down. 22. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
WOW!!! I needed a book like this to get my mind off a hectic work shedule. It was the best book I've read in over a year. Everything you ever wished would happen to corrupt, self-serving politicians. I've recommended it to over 20 people, not to mention those who simply approached me on the train and asked for some insight about the plot. I read it in 1 week, just going to and from work. The story line is very detailed and extremely well researched. As you read, the story unfolds as if you were watching a movie. The author leads the reader but doesn't completely give the ending away. By the end of the book, I had already picked out the actors who I thought should star in the movie.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best book I've ever read! 30. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
In my opinion this novel is a great one because of the mixture of suspense while at the same time you're getting edge of your seat excitment. Flynn when writing this book actualy went to Secret Service agents and ex Commandoes. In return for his efforts he has created a marvelous writing one which wil read again and again only to find out new information and details which I've missed. This book gets you curious even when reading the jacket which is a mere glimpse of what is to come in the rest of the book. Thank you very much for writing this wonderful book which I so deeply enjoyed.

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This novel presents the frightening situation of US members of Congress getting assassinated unless Congress gives in to a very right wing agenda. A young congressman gets involved in solving the mystery and does test his own morals. There are a lot of interesting observations about military culture (especially loner-type ex-military commandos) and civilian intelligence culture. Very briskly written assassination scenes. Since Flynn is a Minnesota native, there is also good background on his part of the country.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Flynn won't be an unknown much longer 13. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I found this political thriller to be an absolute page turner. Vince Flynn has woven an intricate plot with an engaging cast of characters. The lead character, Michael O'Rourke, has engaged in a cloak & dagger mission to avenge our political leaders' abandonment of our founding fathers' dream. Flynn, in his debut novel, captures the audience with the first line of the book, and doesn't let go until the last page has turned. Flynn's style of writing is fresh and quick. Clearly, he researches every detail.
