Product Description

Amazon Review

Razio Yamata is one of Japan's most influential industrialists, and part of a relatively small cabal who exert tremendous authority in the Pacific Rim's economic powerhouse. He has devised a plan to cripple America's pre-eminent standing, humble the U.S. military and elevate Japan to a position of dominance on the world stage. Yamata's motivation lies in his desire to pay off a Debt of Honour to his parents and to the country he feels is responsible for their deaths: America. All he needs is a catalyst to set his plan in motion. When the faulty gas tank on one Tennessee family's car leads to their fiery death, an opportunistic U.S. congressman uses the occasion to rush a new trade law through the system. The law is designed to squeeze Japan economically. Instead, it provides Yamata with the leverage he needs to put his plan into action. As Yamata's plan begins to unfold, it becomes clear to the world that someone is launching a fully integrated operation against the United States. There's only one man to find out who the culprit is: Jack Ryan, the new president's National Security Advisor. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Clancy has been writing the life history of Jack Ryan for many years. With each new book in the series, new aspects of Ryan are displayed, from his own internal doubts about the moral correctness of some of his actions to a dazzling display of competence in each endeavor that he attempts. Here we find Ryan involved, as a first order plot, in an economic war with Japan, waged with all the tools of modern electronic markets, where Ryan's prior experience as a Wall Street analyst is useful, believable, and comprehensible to the reader. This alone is no small feat for Clancy, as Wall Street jargon is a language all its own, and the internal workings of the markets are mainly a dark mystery to most. Of course, this being a Clancy novel, there is far more than just one main plot, and when things deteriorate to a shooting war, he does his usual fine job of delineating actual tactics, weapons, squad level and executive decisions to the point of making the reader feel that he is there on the front line. The characterization of Yamata, one of the main driving forces on the opposing side, is very well done, and lends a sense of inevitability to the surprising and traumatic conclusion to this book. After reading this, Executive Orders is a must read, if just to find out "Now what?" (and you won't be disappointed, as Executive Orders is as good or maybe slightly better than this one).

There are a few places where I felt Clancy could have been more concise; at times the level of detail he throws at the reader is overwhelming, and not truly necessary to developing his plot, characters, or theme.

Format: Paperback
Like a proper military operation, nine-tenths of the plot of this novel is preparation, and the remaining tenth is execution. The novel starts off slowly, opening many detailed sub-plots showing off a lot of technical detail about the US economy, CIA, US defence and military hardware. The book alternates between these different sub-plots, some of which are concluded during the novel, while others are woven together in an enjoyable military climax.

This is a "Ryanverse" novel featuring the usual characters from other Clancy novels, such as Ryan, Murray, Clark and Chavez, and also the resurfacing of some submarine officers from "The Hunt for Red October" .

As with many Clancy novels, the story is thought-provoking and semi-educational due to it's philosophical reflection and accurate technical detail. I thoroughly enjoyed it, although was somewhat disappointed with the sensationalist ending, described in the last five pages or so. I felt this to be an unnecessary and far fetched addition to an otherwise plausible novel, although in one sense it was a chilling premonition of a real event that happened just a few years later...

Fortunately the story carries on directly from the aftermath of this disaster in the sequal "Executive Orders", which I am looking forward to reading next.

Like many Clancy novels, this could be scripted into an excellent TV mini-series, but is in my opinion, too long to be made into a feature film.

Format: Paperback
Forgive the cliché, but Tom Clancy is very much the literary equivalent of Marmite - you either love him or hate him. He's not the most gifted wordsmith ever to unleash his talents on a keyboard, and his characters can sometimes make cardboard cut-outs seem deep. But whatever side of the fence you fall on, there's no denying that he knows which way the winds are blowing in the world of politics and military technology. And he puts that knowledge to good use here.

In the wake of the near-miss war in The Sum of All Fears, America and Russia have agreed to dismantle their stocks of nuclear missiles to prevent such a thing from happening again. All good, you may think. Not when other countries are building their own nukes, and have designs on taking over the Western Pacific. Yes, Japan is getting ready for a rematch against world champions America, and this time the gloves are off.

It starts with an attack on the US economy, followed almost immediately by a Pearl Harbour-esque strike that cripples two American aircraft carriers and sinks of a couple of subs. With no effective force to resist them, Japanese forces occupy Pacific islands lost to them after WW2. Now facing economic chaos, a crippled Navy and an entrenched enemy armed with nuclear missiles, it's up to Jack Ryan and a few others to sort things out.

Books like this are pretty much like adventure TV shows that constantly place the hero in peril - you know they're going to get out of it, but the fun part is seeing how they actually manage it. In Debt of Honour's case, the solution is actually pretty inventive, though you can't help feeling that using the all-purpose silver bullet of superior technology is cheating somewhat.

Format: Paperback
It all depends on what you want. Some stories are fairly superficial and easy to read. Other are meaty and require the reader to concentrate and remember a great many diverse elements. Debt of Honour is such a book. It is the sort of book you need to read several times, each read helping to unravel the depth of the story. It's quality writing well worth the effort.
