Boring, implausible, poorly researched drivel. Skip this one. I'm going to skip any others by this author. The only intrigue is trying to make sense of the sloppy plot. Clancy would be ashamed.
Good story, lots of names to remember and a little tedious at times. However, the details allow for vivid action scenes that only occasionally get bogged down in detail. Highly recommend this book.
I would not by another by this author. The family ought to be ashamed.
The book is a decent read, however the lack of use of the many good and colorful characters that Tom Clancy would have brought is disappointing. Jack Jr. Is left on his own against horrible odds and a war is averted by a brief conversation in a battle field confrontation. Not only surreal, but not credible enough in practice to follow the story line. The book fails to reach the level of believability of a Tom Clancy original. Also, the bad guys are so convoluted in construct I gave up trying to keep them separate another failing in a effort to engender intrigue.
It is not the highly-detailed, meticulous work that Tom Clancy novels are known for. This tome would have made the late Mr. Clancy spin in his grave as it makes the reader feel the story is being rushed; or to put it another way, it was written just to meet a deadline.
To live up to Mr. Clancy's legacy and for his great legacy to go on, perhaps a review of the selection process for writers is in order.
