On an overcast night in Washington D.C. a group of highly trained killers embark on a mission of shattering brutality. A shocked country awakens to the devastating news that three of their most powerful and unscrupulous politicians have been brutally murdered. In the political firestorm and media frenzy that follow, the assassins release their demands: either the country's leaders set aside their petty, partisan politics and restore power to the people, or be held to deadly account. Only Michael O'Rourke, a junior congressman, holds a clue to the violence: a haunting incident in his own past with explosive implications for his country's future. TERM LIMITS is a tour de force of authenticity and suspense, an utterly compelling vision in which the ultimate democratic ideal - a government of the people - is taken to a devastating extreme.
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.
