it was ok

In The Teeth of the Tiger, Clancy finally sails over the edge of the world and down into the abyss. This time around, we've got American government organized death squads dealing rough frontier justice to the various evil doers of our modern world. It would be sad enough if it at least managed to be entertaining, but between this and Red Rabbit, Tom seems to have lost the ability, and perhaps the desire, to be interesting anymore. Too bad, because once upon a time he could spin some real yarns. I once willing stood behind half the US Navy in Crystal City to get an autograph on Cardinal of the Kremlin. But, that was then...

There's really only one scene in this book that holds any interest, a terrorist attack on the mall in Provo. It would seem the bad guys picked the wrong folks to rile. That was fun, but it's a small part of the book. Otherwise, it's all amazingly lifeless and flat. This book was clearly written with a sequel in mind, but so far we've been lucky enough to dodge that bullet. With any luck, we'll never see another like this.
