Adequate production values and a serviceable reading by James Naughton cannot save this audiobook from a truly awful story that tries to pass off a rightist political manifesto with Fascist underpinnings as an entertaining thriller. The silly plot focuses on our hero, a macho U.S. Congressman, who punches out the National Security Advisor in the President's presence, spouts that slain U.S. Congressmen got what they deserved, calls Congressmen who oppose his agenda "pansies," and, finally, joins a plot to kill another Fed with assassins who just happen to include an old Marine buddy and the Congressman's own grandfather. The assassins are all just good Americans, demanding at one point that the President sponsor a crime bill, of all things, or else! They are noble reformers, with a dirty job to do, rubbing out corrupt politicians. This reactionary diatribe is not recommended.?Mark Pumphrey, Polk Cty. P.L., Columbus, NC

Someone is killing senators and congressmen. The killers call for changes in U.S. policy, changes that the American people have demanded for years. Freshman Congressman and former Recon Marine Michael O'Rourke thinks he knows who's behind the assassinations, then learns that government corruption exceeds his greatest imagination. After a slow start, Nick Sullivan warms to the tale and infects the listener with the excitement of its progression. His characters speak for themselves, so clearly and convincingly as to obviate the need for identifiers. Especially creepy is his portrayal of National Security Advisor Nance, a smarmy politician who stops at nothing to further his own ends.
