DISAPPOINTING!!!

Despite the many plot twists and turns, there is no real ending to this novel. Clancy's proxy (ghost) writer, Telep, did not do him a service. It is over written and had lots of promise, but fails to deliver. Mark Greaney's books are better.

Solid book, a good read. 7 of 10 for me.

I have to wonder if Clancy even reviewed what Telep (the actual author) wrote? Even the title suggests this book is just thrown together from bits from other Clancy and written-for-Clancy books, then applied to current-world problems. The story-line jumps around so much it is difficult to become interested and stay interested. 2-stars for this book. Clancy must really need the money to let so many people write for him, but then Clive Cussler and other big-name authors are doing the same. What's next, vampire books? Everyone else is.

with this novel by Clancy, do not start this book if you have to go to work the next day ! It is a really good read - especially the second time thru !

Tom Clancy has been writing about the extraordinary yet thrilling adventures of jack ryan sr. and jr. and their allies and enemies, but with this new kind of soldier, SEAL, man, Maxwell Moore presents our world with the two most biggest threats to our nation: a Mexican drug cartel and the Taliban; some of us have read about the struggles in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, but Clancy delivered us more than a man with a gun in the desert, he provided us with a man with multiple weapons and assets all over the states, the country, and the world. Clancy sweeps us up again in this thrilling action-packed novel of espionage, "Cold War"-type scenarios, and cartels...we owe a beer to Mr. Moore and Mr. Clancy.

I have to be honest. This was nothing more than the exploitation of a well-known name to sell a book. Very little quality in this book

I have always loved Tom Clancy's novels, but I agree with the other reviewers that he is now living on his reputation. I must admit I didn't even make it through this book - it just wasn't interesting enough. Also, the writing style seems quite a bit different to what I have come to expect from Mr. Clancy. Is he turning most of his writing over to a ghost writer? All in all, a poor book with a dragging plot, one dimensional characters and a hard to follow writing style. From now on if I want Clancy I will re-read one of his earlier novels.

Disappointing, though considering that Clancy's been disappointing for several books now, that's no surprise. It picks up somewhat in the last stages of the book, and has somewhat less of the usual Clancy tech-frenzy that he's known for. The book has only the slightest connection to the Jack Ryan books, and it's a blink and you'll miss it thing late in the book. I'm wondering how much of this he left to his collaborator. Either way, the book reads like it's being written by someone who hasn't really cared about the writing process in a long, long, long time.

I think that Tom Clancy has been too succesful for too long. They have let him write a decent book, but too long and a bit too complicated. With a less succesful author the publishers might have had more control and slimmed it down a bit.
