To ensure his success, DeVane makes his move halfway around the world. He hits Gordian where it hurts... and kidnaps his daughter. Now Gordiam must trust his Uplink team as never before, as they fight on land and sea to turn the tables against DeVane ... once and for all.

Format: Paperback
Tom Clancy is following a growing trend amongst some of our best known authors in employing a 'hack' writer to 'ghost' a plot which he has conceived. Sadly, the quality of writing does not approach that of the Tom Clancy that we know. It may well be that the writer - Jerome Preisler - has been overawed by the task alloted to him, or perhaps he was simply not up to the task. I found the descriptive passages both tedious and verbose, with the book struggling (and failing) to achieve any structure or early cohesive plot.
The book was a chore to read (unlike those written by Tom Clancy himself) and would have put it away, had I not been intrigued to see if the mediocrity continued to the end. I am left wondering how many of us could become famous authors if all we had to do was to produce an outline plot and leave others to do the writing. As a 'masterpiece', it is as gifted as 'painting by numbers'!
