Product Description

Product Description

"The best political thriller I have read in a long time, right up there with the very best of David Baldacci."
--Michael Palmer, bestselling author of THE SOCIETY

"Grossman has done a lot of research on everything from political infighting to clandestine military operations, and he manages to hold reader interest right up to the inevitable conclusion."
--Publisher's Weekly

An assassin takes aim at a Presidential candidate during a primary stump speech. The instant he pulls the trigger, the outcome of the election is irrevocably changed. But Democrat Teddy Lodge, an upcoming media sweetheart, isn't killed. His wife is. As a result, Lodge emerges as the man to beat and the greatest threat to the incumbent President, Morgan Taylor. Under a specific directive from the President, Special Service Agent Scott Roarke delves into the case and begins to unravel a deadly plot that incubated for more than 30 years; designed to alter America's allegiances in the Middle East. From the very first page, Executive Actions culls events from today's headlines intersecting with a scenario that's shockingly real: An insidious plot hatched in the old days of the Soviet Union continues to grow to fruition in the hands of a power hungry Middle East heir to the throne. At its core, a sleeper is awakened to take a prominent role in American Life. Executive Actions is a tense political thriller; an election year page-turner, where both the Presidency and the Constitution are at stake.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great political thriller! 25 Jun 2012
By IngaKS
Format:Kindle Edition
My review:

Executive Actions by Gary Grossman is a good political thriller which was well-written, it features solid and complex characters and a plot that makes you turn the pages quicker that you realize. I enjoyed the writing style and the surprises in the story

The story starts with assassination of a Presidential candidate during the campaign and suddenly several forces are involved, the current president, Special Service agents, an attractive attorney, sleeper agents and many others. As soon as the trigger is pulled, the story takes an incredible pace and it's over way too soon. When you turn the last page, you want more and that is a good sign in my book.

I enjoyed the characters and I loved that one of the main characters was a strong woman which is rarity in a good political thriller. I also loved the writing style - it was very visual! The author took the writing to a level where reading was like watching a movie and I truly enjoyed that.

I would highly recommend Executive Actions, it's a great thriller, it has fascinating story and interesting characters!

5.0 out of 5 stars A page turner. 10 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A well-written page turner of a book. Once you start reading you will not want to put it down, and when you do leave it you cant wait to get back to see what is happening next. It is very detailed regarding protocols within the F.B.I., the American Secret Service , Homeland Security etc which one assumes is well researched and authentic. A blockbuster of its genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars a ripping yarn 18 Nov 2013
By M.L.B.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am actually about 75% of the way through this book and I can hardly put it down. While it may not be a literary phenomenon it is an absorbing, ripping yarn in my opinion with the thrill that it could actually possibly happen. The pace is just right, my only criticism is that I keep forgetting who some of the characters are as the story necessarily jumps from location to location a lot. However, unusually for an American conspiracy story I appreciate the meaning of all the security agencies initials being explained in full. I am so pleased I have bought more by this author and have them yet to read and enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reasonably Good 10 Mar 2013
By Frank TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's not quite the "page turner" that several reviewers have said!
The first third of it really introduces the plot and characters; and, we have to have the FULL life story of each person as they enter the scene. Some of it is necessary but I'm not really interested in what a character's Grandparents did for a living and what they ate for breakfast.
Eventually, the story unfolds and I admit gets quite involved and exciting. But, then, just as the final "twist" is unravelling, we get involved in a load of legal wrangling about the US Constitution. The last part is just so full of US gung ho that it takes the focus away from the final scenes.
By the way, I mentioned a "twist" but the secret is fairly obvious from very early on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb action-conspiracy thriller
One of those books which is hard to put down. Fans of Baldacci and Clancy will love it. Could arab terrorists really get their man into the White House?

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor and predictable
A badly written derivative piece of nonsense. The big twist is obvious from page 1, particularly for anyone who has read "Favourite Son" by Steve Sohmer. Avoid.
