Home Vince Flynn Term Limits. They told him it would take a long-term commitment, and that it could be a minimum of six to ten years before they started to see any tangible results from their efforts. To Stansfield’s amazement the president not only agreed, but decided that since the current director of the CIA was retiring shortly, it would make sense to have someone who understood the human side of the business running the Agency.

Vince Flynn brings to life a chilling scenario of Washington under siege - in the provocative, edge-of-your-seat political thriller that stormed onto national bestseller lists. - Larry King, USA Today.

Term Limits - Vince Flynn. This was my first Vince Flynn book. I was looking for a hole to fill Tom Clancy's place and I am disappointed to say that this is not going to completely do the job. The plot is decent, but it misses some opportunities late to really expand on things and surprise the reader.

Term Limits is a fantastic, exciting story. Mr. Flynn is a master at combining politics with national security. It surprised me to learn the first novel was published in October of 2001. Many of the attitudes seem current, so much like we hear happening now. While he took some criticism for the political aspect, I feel that no matter how you lean politically you will relate or be unsurprised at some of the actions of politicians in the tale. Flynn’s next book, and the beginning of the Mitch Rapp series. If you enjoy suspense in the political arena, you won’t want to miss this one!

What if America's politicians were held accountable for their broken promises -- and made to pay for their corruption?

With a unique flair for heart-pounding dramatic tension, meshed with the technical precision of Tom Clancy, author Vince Flynn brings to life a chillingly credible scenario of Washington under siege -- in a provocative, edge-of-your-seat political thriller.

In a night of shattering brutality, three of Washington'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 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.

Compelled by his memories and by his sense of honor, O'Rourke confides in the one woman he trusts, crusading journalist Liz Scarlatti, only to uncover hidden land mines of corruption and murder among the highest ranks of leadership. But as the casualties continue to mount, O'Rourke and Scarlatti make a terrifying discovery -- an appalling truth that the American people can never know if the nation is to survive.

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.

Admittedly, I HAD heard of Vince Flynn and I even remember feeling a certain sense of sorrow at his untimely death in 2013. But what actually got me interested enough to take on this prolific raconteur of political intrigue can be separated, I suppose, into two separate and independent incidents: first, I just happened to stumble upon a 2005 interview with Bill O' Reilly, one in which O' Reilly went on and on about Vince's ability to pack an inordinate amount of technical detail into his books while still making them seductive for the reader. As an author myself who's attempting a novel requiring just such an approach, I was naturally intrigued. Secondly, I'd discovered that he suffered from dyslexia at a young age. But a mercilessly driven effort to overcome it by succumbing himself to a reading/writing process that involved difficult and nuanced literary works from Robert Ludlum, Ernest Hemingway, J.R, Tolkein and Gore Vidal gave proof of a driven desire to become the writer that he dreamed of becoming.

What also was amazing to me is that this book "Term Limits," was originally only was only later that it got bought by a mainstream publishing house, Pocket Books where it then took off, becoming a New York Times Bestseller.

What is genuinely remarkable and which became the true essence of this book is the depth of detail, the stunningly spot-on descriptions of not only the strategies and tactics of the CIA and FBI, but of the available modern ordinance and firepower as well as the latest (and of course since pre-historically disposed...this was written using 1997 technology) computer and network connecting technology. Flynn clearly had access to in-depth information from all tentacles of subversive agency ops that he continued to tap until his death. This access assuredly baffled and infuriated many of the contemporaries of his genre...but in taking and using this information, he certainly does not disappoint.

"Term Limits" begins when rogue assassins begin stealthily removing high ranking Washington officials (Senator Sub Committee Leaders, Congressional Leaders, the Speaker of the House...) who have used clandestine and subversive methods to assure the President's budget legislation gets passed in the House. Sending a message that more killings will occur unless this bill is overhauled and government spending (and thus the Federal deficit) is reduced, the erstwhile sleazy members of President Jim Stevens staff struggle to counteract these "terrorist" threats. Discovering that these killer rebels are in fact American patriots, we're taken on a wild ride of political and covert military intrigue as Flynn introduces drama after drama, keeping the plot heavy with page turning suspense and marveling us with his knowledge in the "black ops" of undercover engagements. I read this in less than three weeks which for a notoriously slow reader is symbolic of the embracing content of this fine work.

For criticisms, I'd only add as minor asides (and undoubtedly as first novel misnomers) that the Presidential staff, namely the Chief of Staff and The National Security Advisor were portrayed as uncommonly sleazy; men who would never pass the muster to hold these positions in real life. BUT, to make this novel work, they were needed as important components and in the interest of literary license, entirely forgivable.

So if you're like me and have been living in a cave since 1997, it's definitely time to come out and experience the, sadly, lost voice of Vince Flynn. Starting with "Term Limits," you'll experience the power of the story and the nuance of the characters while being utterly enthralled with the intelligence of his detailed knowledge of the government miasma of weapons, tactics and subversive maneuvering. Read "Term Limits" and I promise you that you'll become an instant fan.
This book was published early in the Bush administration and presumably written late in the Clinton presidency. But as we start the Trump presidency, Washington is still a swamp to use Trump's words . This story shows Washington politics as being corrupted by special interests, partisan politics and the overwhelming desire to get reelected . While our politicians hopefully do not resort to murder , this book takes what is going on in our government to the next level . As such, it is a bit distressing and depressing to feel that nothing has changed in 16 years . But it means that the book is still relevant and , beyond that, it is engrossing. If Amazon and Goodreads would allow half point ratings , I would give this a 4.5.
Having read all of the books in the Rapp Series twice, I decided to go back and read Term Limits. It was engrossing and very satisfying. Here is the backstory on all of the key players in the series. Scott Coleman is one of my favorite characters and I loved learning of his motivation and exploits.
"Term Limits" is the first book published by the late Vince Flynn and shows all the page-turning, adrenaline-packed writing that made him so famous with his Mitch Rapp series. While Rapp is not in this book, many of the characters in later books are there, including Thomas Stansfield, then head of the CIA, and his chief analyst Irene Kennedy, and Scott Coleman, ex Navy SEAL.

The background to the plot is almost contemporary. The President and Congress cannot agree on a budget and a debt ceiling. The Budget is packed with funding designed to buy the votes of individual members of Congress and the White House is manipulating the budget to get it passed. "The country is going bankrupt, both morally and financially. We need some drastic changes or the most powerful country in the world is going to go the way of Rome". Sounds familiar, doesn't it? The main difference is that, with a small number of carefully planned and targeted assassinations of corrupt leading politicians, a group of angry ex-military try to force The President and Congress to make major changes - or they will target the President. The demonstration of how they might target the President is Vince Flynn action-writing at its best.

Combine all of this with an egotistical Chief of Staff, a retired and dangerous ex-CIA covert ops killer and an ambitious and unscrupulous National Security Advisor and you have a very explosive situation.

There are few laugh-out-loud situations in the White House so reminiscent of Mitch Rapp where FBI and CIA staff are able to face up to the President's helpers and make them look stupid. The action scenes are meticulously planned and detailed and most of the plot is plausible.

I understand that Vince Flynn had to self-publish this book before it was picked up and promoted by a publisher when it immediately became a NY Times bestseller for several weeks. While there are signs of a debut novel, the writing is good enough to stand the test of time as an exciting first book of a popular author who would set the standard for so many other books in the politico/CIA/assassin genre.
