Publisher's Summary

The fourth standalone thriller in The Executive Series finds Secret Service Agent Scott Roarke on a serial assassin’s trail - one that leads to a clandestine North Korean plot and a nuclear standoff.  

Instability and fear seize the nation. Local and national political figures are systematically assassinated. A growing secessionist movement stirs up anti-government fervor. The combination creates nationwide unrest and lack of confidence in leadership. With the clock ticking toward a monumental constitutional crisis, President Morgan Taylor assigns Secret Service Agent Scott Roarke to investigate the assassinations. Meanwhile, Roarke’s fiancée, an assistant to the US Supreme Court Chief Justice, is tasked with researching the separatists. Attorney Katie Kessler goes rogue to gather evidence for the court. Roarke hunts a lone assassin across two continents. Their paths lead them both to a decades-old plot hatched at a private school in Switzerland, now leading to North Korea.  

With the assassin ready to make his greatest kill and critical destabilizing votes occurring state-by-state, the president must decide whether to activate America’s own secretive, long-incubating active measures against an enemy that can’t be exposed, but must be stopped. Timely and revealing, with an inside-out view of real and present dangers, Executive Force brings a political reality to life that feels like breaking news.

Put "Scott Roarke" among the best...

I've read all of Gary Grossman's Scott Roarke series. This is #4. I'm hooked. The action fiction genre of "intrepid spec ops agent saving America" is a crowded one for sure... but Roarke deserves to be in the Top Tier. I'm pretty sure I know the author's personal politics BUT he does NOT use his stories as a soap box at all. Very rare these days. I appreciate it.

The series doesn't need to be read in order... but I always recommend doing so. There are other characters and relationships that develop thru the series.

Ready for #5 Gary...

Great book from Grossman

Scott Roarke is an outstanding character as well as the characters of Katie, the President, CIA director. Roarke can hold his own and even exceed the likes of the Mitch Rapp, Scott Horvath and Pike Logan characters of other writers. This book was full of great action throughout with multiple but converging plots. I have A LOT of books in my library (about 1400) and it takes a lot for me to say “that was awesome” at the end. This book is one of those cases. Sit back and enjoy the ride with this one.

Hooked from the get-go

This is the third book in the Executive series and I have enjoyed all of them. The frightening thing is that this last book is so convincingly realistic, creeped me out. I could see something like this very story happening in this day and age.

Thanks for your reviews for EXECUTIVE FORCE!

Author Gary Grossman here and I truly appreciate your comments. I'm thrilled that EXECUTIVE FORCE is hitting the mark and that many have checked out my other books in the EXECUTIVE SERIES - EXECUTIVE ACTIONS, EXECUTIVE TREASON, and EXECUTIVE COMMAND. Coming in March, 2019, RED HOTEL, a brand new thriller series with co-author ED FULLER. Hope you enjoy. And thanks again. Truly appreciated! And thanks again to JOHN McLAIN for a terrific read! I hope other readers can also post reviews. They absolutely help!
