The author does a great job of getting you into the heads of his characters, and he makes you feel as if you are a participant in the story. He hits the nail on the head describing a lot of the dysfunction in today’s political world, and makes you want to be an agent of change: not, of course, in the manner his characters are attempting to implement change, but it makes you sit back and wonder “how did we let this happen” with the career politicians and the slow erosion of people’s rights.
I actually finished this book about two weeks ago and keep on thinking about many of the situations in the book: that’s impressive to me, as given the number of books I read in a month it has to be really good to make me think back to it days, let alone two weeks, after finishing it.
If you enjoy a good thriller with twists and plot turns, I would highly recommend this one. I’m looking forward to reading more from Mr. Lewis.
Faced with an ever-expanding, and ever-growing & intrusive government, a small band of self acclaimed revolutionaries take it upon them selves to bring control of their government back to the people.
It's simple, you see. Incumbent politicians almost never lose re-election simply because they have such a huge advantage over any & all challengers. This holds true, historically, for both political parties.
One solution which go a long way toward preventing career politicians - and the little fiefdoms of power and influence they carve out for themselves - is to enact term limits for both houses of congress. Just as it applies to the presidency.
But congress is not going to give up their advantage, and the untold riches that come with power & influence, merely because it seems like a good idea. They couldn't care less about the nation as a whole. Hence the problem.
So, our little band of revolutionaries - dubbed the Term Limits Revolution - have decided that, unless congress begins debate, and ultimately passage of a congressional term limits amendment. If not, the penalties will be dire indeed. Lives will be lost. Families affected. But no one really believes they're actually serious - or that they could pull off their claims if they did.
To the shock of the nation, the president, and the congress, they are deadly serious. A fact all too obvious once the first House members are struck down in the most gruesome fashion. And the game begins.
Led by a veteran FBI Agent, and closely monitored by the Attorney General and his head of the Joint Terrorism Task Force, our revolutionaries - referred to as the TLR - are hunted down with the full weight and authority of the U.S Dept of Justice. But their successes continue, as innocents are caught in the crossfire. Showing the prejudices and heavy hand of this DOJ. And it ain't pretty.
With each page, the tension builds. The suspense tightens. And the reader wishes they could read much quicker. It's THAT type of novel.
I'll let you decide whether you're happy about how it ends. Or whether such a thing is even possible in today's world. And by that, I mean the entire scenario.
I know where I come down on that question. You may feel otherwise. But you'll have to agree you came away with a great deal to think about. And leave it at that.
country. This tense story kept me reading all night to the dramatic ending.
