It has been seven years since Tom Clancy's last novel, and even longer since his last good novel. However, "Dead or Alive" is reminiscent of Clancy's earlier books like "Patriot Games" and "The Hunt for Red October". In this latest offering, Clancy slowly exposes the many threads that eventually come together to reveal the terrorist plot and the American plan of action to stop it. While there were some unnecessary passages, and a less than enthusiastic return to politics by Jack Ryan Sr, "Dead or Alive" crackled along at a great rate. Clancy even ramped up the action scenes, and, without trying to ruin it for everyone, killed off a character from previous novels. Here's hoping, on behalf of all the long suffering Tom Clancy fans, that the master is back to stay, and that we won't have to wait another seven years for the next book.
