When I checked this one out from the library I was not sure if this was a book or a door stop. I guess it could do double duty really. Of course Clancy has always been well known for writing novels of grand proportions. I was surprised to see this one was only a bit over 750 pages. Okay so you have all of the alphabet agencies chasing the cartels, mainly the Mexican cartels, and some Stan country terrorists tied in to it all. This one had shades of Doug Winslows book The Power Of The Dog ghosting through it, although with a bit less violence. Don't get me wrong there is plenty of bodies hitting the floor just not in such a graphic fashion as depicted in Winslows book. This is great writing from Clancy however it seems as if he has drifted from his earlier days. The original Jack Ryan stuff was really great. That does not mean this one is to be missed by Clancy and thriller fans alike. Enjoy!
