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.

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

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.
