Not as good as his original Jack Ryan novels
on 22 October 2013
The book has an interesting plot-line but the development of the plot seems shallow when compared to Clancy's original Jack Ryan novels. There is still a level of detail which gives the feeling of authenticity, but without getting bogged down in too much detail, however the climax of the novel is a bit of anti-climax and my feeling at the end was one of disappointment.
I see Tom Clancy sadly died recently and I hope he will be remembered for his original novels (a favourite read of the late President Ronald Reagan apparently) and not his later offerings which had started to look formulaic.
