Make no mistake - as an avid Clancy fan I still found this book a good read. Clancy is, for the most part, still in a different league for details and well constructed plots. But.......I was left, ultimately, feeling disapointed on 2 counts. (1) whilst good, and definately better than Red Rabbit, it is no where near as good as the Jack Ryan and Clark novels; and (2) it's a bit short: the book seems to come to an end at an unnatural point, just as things are getting more interesting; this book is half the thickness of previous Clancy epics and I was left wondering if the original book had been split in two for the benefit of sales and profit. Probably just me being cynical! To sum up: still good, but could be so much better. Lets hope Clancy returns to his own high standards with his next book.
