Vice-President Boyd assumes the office and swings into action, ostensibly to energize the war on terrorism. With the ingredients of a presidential assassination, domestic terrorism, an intricate coup d'etat theme and a Harrison Ford/Clint Eastwood style hero you'd think this might be a hot novel.

Read in two days. Kept you on the edge from the first page. Hard to put down. Though a work of fiction, seems to fit todays political intrigue.

I'm glad I didn't read the reviews before picking up the book (at Walmart)because I had finished another in the middle of a business trip. I don't finish many books in 24 hours, but, this is an exception. I suspect the criticisms come from people that are still upset that Reagan beat Carter and Mondale. I came to Amazon to see if Schweizer might be continuing the story in a sequel. I liked the characters and I have seen some compare them to Eastwood/Ford type movie roles. I see it more as a "Jack Bauer" type role. Too bad Kiefer Sutherland already got tagged in a Secret Service role. This would make a better movie, and as 1 "24" fan, I'd love to see him in the role of Mike Delaney. The plot is audacious, and requires the suspension of disbelief at times, which makes for good fiction.

Cap should stick to his day job. The publisher of Forbes magazine has teamed with novelist Peter Schweizer to pen this erstwhile thriller. With the ingredients of a presidential assassination, domestic terrorism, an intricate coup d'etat theme and a Harrison Ford/Clint Eastwood style hero you'd think this might be a hot novel. With Ronald Reagan's former Secretary of Defense (hey, the guy almost single-handedly won the cold war) at the helm, you'd think this would be the most revealing, intimate look at federal agencies and how they operate.

You'd be wrong. Instead, the suspense is non-existent, the storyline predictable and formulaic. 'Chain of Command' starts with a bang. POTUS is killed, and the next 300 pages devolve into a rather bland plot of framed good guy patriot versus dark-skinned evil South American hired guns working at the behest of Nixonian-like Presidential aids. (Cap still trying to distant himself from those guys?) The attempted plot twists are lame: Oh! Our hero, Mike Delaney, really isn't hiding under the tarp on the outbound train...it's a cell phone with a transmitter! My, my, what a surprise! Gee, any chance Delany will escape the next peril he faces? Readable over a weekend, it nonetheless is a story that feels crafted over a weekend, too.

Insultingly, six pages of pointless epilogue retell the whole tale as if you perhaps didn't understand the preceding pages. This brings the bore to a close. Mr. Secretary, please spend your time writing better stuff. Give us memoirs, political analysis, observations of life on Maine islands, whatever. Don't sully your rep with dime-store novels.

Not farfetched at all, and in some ways the fiction has been surpassed by truth.

There is the remarkable similarity of the fictional President Boyd's attempts

to overthrow the Constitution, and what was attempted by the real President

Bush. Although Boyd uses assassination and staged bombings in the U.S., Bush

used 9/11 in a similar manner to induce fear in the population and provide a

rational for executive rule. Boyd's power play runs into more Congressional

opposition and is less brazen than the reality of actions by G.W. Bush.

This is in the tradition of fictional warnings of distopia, such as 'It

Can't Happen Here', "Brave New World" and "1984".

It's also a good political action thriller; better than the Clive Custler

books.

Weinberger has certainly used his knowledge of the inner workings of

government to good effect here.

I loved the story from the first page. If you want a political thriller that starts on page one and carries through until the end, this is it. Having read other reviews, I believe Mr. Weinberger's past employment may be tainting people's perceptions of the book. People are different in their political stance so they may not like the book based on 'principle' but I truly believe that if you want an exciting read, this will be it. Sadly, it will also be the only as Mr. Weinberger has passed.

The action and plot are fast-paced and pretty nearly believable given the quality of our elected officials. However, I wonder how much of a hand Mr. Weinberger had in writing this - as a former SECDEF, he ought to know that Mary Campo, whose rank is LTCOL and is referred to as "Colonel" (pp. 19, 62, and elsewhere), would not wear "gold leaves...on your uniform" (p. 60) - the insignia of a major. Also, you COULD head east out of DC and arrive in Centreville (p. 152) in Maryland - it's on the Eastern Shore -and a LONG way around to getting to the Shenandoah Valley. You head WEST out of DC and pass through Centreville VA on Route 29 south of Dulles Airport, enroute to the Shenandoah Valley. Perhaps having had a personal driver all those years atrophied Mr. Weingerger's geographical knowledge. It's glaring and blatant errors such as these that reflect poorly on the authors (whoever they may be) and even more poorly on the quality of editorship in our publishing houses, and turn a thriller into a book for the trash can.
Weinberger and Schweizer have put together a novel that is definitely fast and highly entertaining, with enough thrills to please most thriller fans. The only slight drawback was that the plot seemed just a little farfetched, though it was fun to read.

Recommended for the thrills
