The book starts with three events: a freighter of Chinese illegals being destroyed off the coast of America, A South African sugar mill blowing up, and the bombing of a "gentleman's club" in Taipei, China. Paul Hood, Op Center's boss, is canned quickly one morning by the president, and given an ultimatum. Work directly for him at the Whitehouse in a job with no staff and almost non-existent budget and little authority, or go home. He chose to work for the president. Op Center is given to a lady ...more
This was an okay book. It took a while to get started. The ending was tense enough to make me not want to put the book down until it reached the point where the tension was gone and it was no longer a big deal to put it down. Seriously, though, it took a while to build up to the climax. This is the twelfth book in the series and I am sure it would have helped to have read the first eleven to get some kind of emotional investment in the storyline and the characters. There were so many characters ...more

Another of Clancy's Op-Center books. Op-center is in turmoil with a change of command, the old head is now working directly for the President and a army 3 star is the new head. Meanwhile the Chinese are ready to launch a satellite with a nuclear power supply and there is an escalating fight between an army general and the intelligence chief. The general wants to move into the future with himself in control and is taking the satellite launch as a pretext to attack Taiwan and the Intelligence chie ...more

PROS: the book was good, it keeped me interested. The main charector ( Paul Hood) prevented a missile from going off. He also found out who was behind a bombing in south caralina, it was the chinease. He helped his frined who was fired for doing the right thing.

CONS: i felt the plot was stretched out and it was jumped from perspective from perspective. It was too long of a book for its plot

All in all, i do recomend this book to anyone who likes tom clancy novals

I had a hard time following the storyline. I couldn't keep track of the characters or understand why they were taking the actions that they did. Most of the things seemed counterintuitive to me.

Audiobook. Good series. Keeps changing.

Intermittently he inserts non-fictional snippets about events in our military pasttime. I enjoyed those. Otherwise, standard issue military action novel based on a fictional National Securities branch of the government. They are tasked to prevent an international crisis between Thailand and China that, of course, would draw the US into warfare.

Slow starting and hard to get into... This book sat on my desk at work for a very very long time, with me often looking for more work to do, than to finish this one.

Was tough to get started but once into it I loved it. Another series that is best read in order because references are made to previous "episodes"!

much better than the last one in the series. I hope another book gets written to tie up the series it seems like there are too many loose ends.
listened to on holiday in Oregon. It was very manly yet strangely engaging. Typical Clancy though - very formulaic.

This was a very mediocre book, with an unimaginative plot and little character development

Listen to the audio version. Pretty good book, maybe a little slow.
