Condition was it as expected or advertised. Rated good however the pages are discoloured, the spine has several white fold marks and the cover is worn.

The story takes place in the '80's when the US and USSR were developing "Star Wars" technology. There is the added plotline of a long term spy in the Soviet Defence Ministry working for the Americans who passes on the infomation. Eventually the spy is blown and is caught by the KGB. So a desperate race is on to get him out of the Soviet Union by blackmailing the chief of the KGB. Jack Ryan is in Russia with the negotiating team for US - Soviet disarmament talks and is caught up in the ensuing mayhem.

Gets a little stodgy in places but still got through it fairly quickly and an interesting story, even if I don't always agree with the politics.

A very good action book taking place during the cold war.
I have enjoyed it: a very good early Tom Clancy.

There is something magical about Clancy's writing about Cold War. Gives a sort of mysticism of that age, and Jack Ryan is well adjusted in his CIA role, which won't last long. Resolves some plot points from Red October, and has great repercussions in future books, especially Executive Orders.
