Awesome: Vince Flynn
Scott Coleman gets multiple CMA's during Term Limits.Firstly, the three way hit where all three targets, who are some of the most powerful men in Washington are killed with hardly any forensic evidence. Next, Coleman's killing of the Speaker where he bypasses the Secret Service detail by setting off a smoke alarm allowing him to shoot the speaker with a sniper rifle over the heads of his bodyguards. Then there was the terrifyingly coordinated prank on Marine One where Coleman manipulates the president's helicopters with flares in such a way that the two decoy helicopters are driven away leaving Marine One vulnerable. Next, the kidnapping of Arthur Higgins, the consultant of the main antagonists from his mansion and giving the CIA Quick Reaction Force the slip.
