Product Description

Product Description

Against All Enemies is the first Max Moore novel by bestselling author, Tom Clancy.

When Ex-Navy SEAL and CIA operative Maxwell Moore barely survives a prisoner exchange that goes explosively wrong off the coast of Pakistan, he realises that powerful, cunning forces have been marshalled against him. Determined to dig out the truth, he uncovers a shocking conspiracy.

The two greatest threats to U.S. security have forged an unholy alliance. For the Mexican drug cartel, it means money, power, and control of the drug trade. But for the Taliban, it is an opportunity to bring the fire of jihad to the heartland of the infidel.

Now Moore and his depleted team must infiltrate the drug cartel in the hunt for terrorists preparing to bring destruction to America's streets.

From the remote, war-scarred landscapes of the Middle East to the blood-soaked chaos of the U.S.-Mexico border, Tom Clancy delivers a heart-stopping thriller you won't forget.

In Against All Enemies Tom Clancy introduces Max Moore, a character set to join Jack Ryan as one of the great heroes of modern thriller writing. Previous Jack Ryan titles include Locked On and Dead or Alive.

3.0 out of 5 stars Typical Clancy 17 Jun 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Tom Clancy is well known for books which contain many sub-plots which slowly converge into a dramatic and thrilling finale. While books such as Red Storm Rising and The Hunt for Red October represent brilliant examples of this writing technique, I can only describe this as a literary misfire. As with many of Clancy's books, the plot is too complex to be summarized properly on a single page (with liberal use of the phrase 'and then') - yet much of the book is unnecessary chaff, which should be prime candidates for removal at the hands of the editors. It's a book that would take pages to explain, yet equally could be split into a 2 hour Hollywood thriller, if necessary. I enjoy Clancy's books - but in this, as with many others, he has clearly fallen into the Russian Story problem - where a new minor character is introduced on every page - and in the end, the story is much too long winded to make an effective read. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the book - I would advise others to be careful (unless they were fans of Clancy themselves).

3.0 out of 5 stars Different 22 Jun 2011
As previously reviewed you can tell straight away that, although his name is on the cover, there is very little, if any, input by Clancy in this novel. It does however have that current American penchant for micro-detailing any weapon system used by characters which as always is an annoyance rather than attribute.

The biggest disappointment for me was the blatant plagarism of the Richard Cox novel from the 70's called SAM-7. this is a far superior book detailing the effects rather than glossing over the event as in this novel. In fact the end of the book seems to happen in one great rush to get it done!

Overall I would have to say that although the plot showed promise with a reasonably debatable storyline I was somewhat disppointed with the outcome - somewhat like the abysmal Hollywood effort of Sum Of All Fears.

1.0 out of 5 stars Clancy past his best 31 July 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have read every book written by Tom Clancy and was very disappointed by his last offering Dead or Alive. It was awful and I assumed it to be a one off. How wrong, this latest book failed to hold my interest beyond 100 pages, I just gave up on it. It in no way resembled anything previously written by Clancy and I suspect it was the work of his co-author, Peter Telep. This appears to be the latest means of making a fast buck, write a novel and get a well known author to put his name to the title. I feel cheated and very disappointed that Mr Clancy has gone from my most favoured writer to one to avoid in the future.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed of Rixensart 1 Sep 2011
By Janice
I've read most of Tom Clancy's books, the majority four or five times each. When I saw this one, still in hardback, thought I'd treat myself. The story was just not of the calibre of titles such as 'The Sum of all Fears', 'Debt of Honour'. I didn't actually finish it. Couldn't get involved with the characters - under developed some of the other reviews said.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment 23 July 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Tom Clancy should be ashamed at putting his name to this book. The story is contrived - a hero with emotional baggage, some hammed-up US homeland security nonsense, an abrupt end to the lead 'bad guy', a low-rent love interest and plenty of other pretty standard story lines. It was a boring read. I'd never heard of the lead author Peter Telep - and now I know why. He wouldn't be able to publish anything on his own and is clearly riding along on the Clancy label.

I would just avoid this book. There is plenty of other, better, thriller/pseudo-military material out there.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing 8 July 2011
I've read pretty much all of Tom Clancy's novels. And this was just disappointing, ponderous slow and dramatic unfulfilling. The other novels feel they were dragged from the front pages of newspapers and stuffed with techno informatint the CIA would want. But this one was just an attempt to enervate to tired old cliche villains by mixing them up. Like a cocktail of stale wine and stale beer.

Not to mention how so much action happens off stage in a 700+ page book. And nothing connects there's no exiting chase to head off the villains plot in the end. It sort of happens with almost no context to our heroe's actions.

3.0 out of 5 stars three stars (just) 4 July 2011
As has been previously commented by others, it is obvious that Tom Clancy had little to do with this and joins the growing list of authors showing contempt to their readers by out-sourcing.

But this starts off looking and feeling very much like a Clancy - it's a doorstop of a book (750 pages) and tries hard to be a complex techno-thriller. In essence it is about the drug cartels and terrorists working together and an elite US force trying to bring them down. It lacks the pace and tension of a traditional Clancy along with the blend of politics and on the ground action and ends up being overlong and does not suck you in enough. Far, far too many characters confuse and our tediously flawed hero, Max Moore, jets all over the place with as much angst as he has identities.

Maybe in a shorter, tighter, book this might have worked, but it felt too drawn out and as if it was working to a template rather than delivering a good story. Just about deserves three stars but I did toy with two, mainly based on the excessive length and lack of real excitement. But very average and very long.
