This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A Soviet plot has deadly repercussions for modern America.

“EXECUTIVE ACTIONS is the best political thriller I have read in a long, long time—right up there with the very best of David Baldacci. Gary Grossman has written a masterpiece of suspense, powerfully written and filled with wildly imaginative twists. Get ready to lose yourself in a hell of a story.” —Michael Palmer, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of OATH OF OFFICE

An assassin’s bullet changes the course of the Presidential election— not by killing Democratic candidate Teddy Lodge, but his wife. Riding a wave of popular sympathy, Lodge surges forward as the man to beat for incumbent President Morgan Taylor. Secret Service Agent Scott Roarke is ordered by President Taylor to investigate the assassination, and unravels a deadly Soviet plot that has incubated for more than 30 years. Now in the hands of a power hungry Middle Eastern heir to the throne, Agent Roarke must stop a sleeper agent poised to change the course of American policy in the Middle East. EXECUTIVE ACTIONS is a tense political thriller, where both the Presidency and the Constitution are at stake. 

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 19, 2004 – TV producer Grossman's first thriller might well be subtitled "The Libyan Candidate." It starts with the assassination of apparently the wrong person the wife of Massachusetts Democratic congressman Teddy Lodge, who's running a distant second in the presidential primaries. Lodge and his handlers use the killing to stir up a media storm to win first the nomination and then the presidency itself. But several people loyal to the defeated Republican president especially Scott Roarke, a tough and resourceful agent for the Defense Intelligence Agency begin to have suspicions about Teddy Lodge. Is he really who he claims to be? And who is the mysterious Libyan who appears to be pulling his strings and who perhaps even arranged the assassination of Mrs. Lodge? Grossman has done lots of research on everything from political infighting to clandestine military operations; despite a certain stiffness in his narrative technique, he manages to hold reader interest right up to the inevitable conclusion. , Grossman is also the co-owner of Weller/Grossman Productions, an L.A. production company, whose credits include more than 6,000 shows for the History Channel, A&E, NBC, ABC, CBS, the Sci-Fi Channel and other networks. Anyone for an option on a made-for-TV movie?

Customer Reviews

Great read!

Highly recommend and will be reading more from this author. Fast paced and exciting.

Good book bad editing

The storyline and plot are great but the editing remains to be seen. There were quite a few chapters that ended in the middle of a paragraph and didn't start back up again.

Great read

Editing needs work. There were scenes that ended abruptly as if the writer lost his train of thought. Also, formatting did not hold true through to the end
