5.0 out of 5 stars Well researched, exciting and convincing work, sadly Tom Clancy's last..., 5 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Command Authority (Jack Ryan 13) (Hardcover)
"Command Authority" by Tom Clancy is a latest novel from his Jack Ryan series, and unfortunately his last novel at all considering that this successful and acclaimed author of thriller bestsellers died two months ago.

In his last book, the author said goodbye in great style because novel for its subject has the threat of great global conflict that our main character has the ability to prevent.

Ryan, who is known former secret agent from Clancy's earlier novels, is still in a White House as re-elected US President.
Jack's son, Jack Ryan Jr. is working in UK as a financial analyst and when unusual case of Russian violent gas and oil company takeover happens, he would immediately suspect that something is wrong.
In an interesting turn of events that will start to happen, ambitious Russian president who wants to restore former glory and size of USSR will choose Ukraine as next victim after his plan for violent annexation of the Baltic countries failed.
Russian plan is to finance such an ambitious and expensive undertaking by the sale of oil and gas, which would again return Russia among key players on the world political scene.

And while time is slowly running out, and America doesn't have much options to peacefully prevent the Russian operation that will disturb the balance of power, Jack's son will find out about the case thirty years ago on which his father worked, which may be able to prevent the apparently inevitable clash of East and West...

It's sadly to realize with novel's last page that this is the last Clancy novel we read. With this one he once again managed to create an exciting and convincing work that is read in one breath from beginning to end.
Combining his extensive knowledge of politics, strategy and warfare, the author made thrilling story with great pace, which is at the same time exciting and believable.

Once again he prepared well his book with extensive research, and to his work is difficult to find a flaw in terms of political and military aspects.

And due to these reasons, "Command Authority" that is sadly Tom Clancy's last novel can be recommended to all fans of thrillers, military or political fiction that often looks very close to reality...

But it won't be his last. He didn't write this and somebody will write 'his' next one!
