* "Shadow watch" (Power Plays 3) was created by Tom Clancy and Martin Greenberg, no writers attributed until Jerome Preisler by book 8. The farther from original Tom Clancy thrillers the worse. This series is about an American space spy-military agency. Annie, cancer widow, sees spacecraft explode just before launch, killing a favorite astronaut school buddy. Six plus pages nightmares with both dead men interchanging, boring. The agency asks her to lead the investigation. Evil Devane commands me ...more

Mixed emotions about this book. At times their was excilerating moments that i could harldy put down and other times i had to force myself to progress not page by page but line by line. Although Some very memoriable quotes and speaches. Espically from Harlan DeVanre. Made this book not a complete waste of my time.
The plot was built well to begin with. A space shuttle crisis that leads to a fuel explosion makes way for an investigation. The terrorists build up excellent opposing charcters. The i

I hadn't realised this was in a series called Power Plays - but it is still readable as a one off.

It is 2001 and American business man Roger Gordian has extended his reach into space. But the launch if a shuttle carrying parts for the Orion space station he is the the principal contractor for is sabotaged. The Orion project has been targeted by an international terrorist whose criminal enterprises thrive on violence and political instability.

The book as a lot of exciting action and interesting

Very exciting book to read.
Comes with a thrilling end.
Sometimes a little boring because the story doesn't read very fast.

But overall:
4 out of 5 stars for this thrilling masterpiece from Tom Clancy.

From Florida to Kazakhstan to Brazil unexpected, unprecedented chaos is reigning. Harlan DeVane loves discord, or is that 'loves to disrupt order.' Determined to cripple Roger Gordian's efforts toward a multinational space station he puts strong men's minds as well as bodies to the ultimate challenge.

Exciting. Constantly keeps you guessing what's next. Totally enjoyable and action packed.
Weak and derivative, I'm pretty sure this has Tom Clancy's name on it but it was penned by a ghost writer and the TC label was just slapped on the cover.

A very boring book packed with technical jargon and not enough character development or plot.
