Executive Orders is the third in a series featuring ex–Secret Service agent Joe Reeder and FBI Special Situations Task Force leader Patti Rogers. As expected they are thrust into personal danger as a dangerous conspiracy comes into play.
Starting with the death of four soldiers, quickly followed by government officials and CIA agents, the questions are asked who is behind the conspiracy and who will be next – the president?
The book is past paced, with plenty of action. The characters lack a depth, but that is quickly forgiven in what is an action genre, rather than drama.
Collins has provided an easy to read action book, that will keep people happy that there are still good guys out there.
