really liked it

Around the time this was a newly released book, I had read other Tom Clancy novels and had enjoyed them, however I do not believe I read this one. Decades later I have a better understanding of the technology, jargon, etc. than I did at that time which gives me a different appreciation towards this book.

This book is about the war on drugs and a fictional way Clancy's characters handled it during an election year. This is not the first book with Jack Ryan as a character, however it could be read as a standalone book.

I enjoyed how the author did well with his characters making each believe s/he was doing right based on their personal morals and knowledge. This book makes me want to reread other Clancy novels to see what I might have missed then that I can appreciate now.
