saw a lot of negative reviews here which seem to be from die hard clancy fans who recognised that perhaps the co-author was over involved but from the point of view of someone whos not read clancy before it was a good read. multiple plots lots of action, interesting characters and plot twists. I admit i dont read a lot, I occasionally star books but get bored and give up so its testament to this one that after losing it, I purchased another copy to finish it off.
The only other thing ive read recently, that also happens to be of a similar ilk,is 'Worth Dying For' by Lee Childs, which was a bit bettr perhaps.
Anyway my point is this is an interesting book, i found the attention to detail regarding military paraphinalia esp guns interesting, the main characters had depth and the plot was Gripping and relavent with respect to the 'War on Terror' but not too obvious in that the mexican drug cartels are also involved in the plot. I might add that the violence described with respect to the cartels was often grotesque.
