    Set in the latter days of Viet Nam, this is the novel that explains exactly who "Clark" is and what made him so well regarded and ruthless in the Jack Ryan novels, (principally "Clear and Present Danger." I highly recommend this novel!

    His work for the CIA is brilliant, cold-blooded, and efficient, but who is he? In a harrowing tour de force, phenomenally best-selling author Tom Clancy shows how an ordinary man named John Kelly crossed the lines of justice and morality to become the CIA legend known as Mr. Clark. It is an unforgettable journey into the heart of darkness, without mercy - without remorse.

    Story

    My brother in law is a retired US Marine Lt Colonel. I remember his mother, my mother in law, reading this series and loving it. Maybe that is why it took me 20 years to try it! I knew it to be accurate, but never imagined it to be as entertaining and addicting as it is.

    The main character is a reluctant hero who has killed in pre-war China out of self defense and self preservation. He is a humble man, barely out of high school, yet with a talent for languages and a raw knack for espionage.

    My daughter married a young man who discovered he had a peculiar talent in languages while in seminary. He had gone through college never knowing his ability, so Griffin's hero is not so far fetched after all.

    Griffin introduces us to the Corps through men and women most of us can identify with. There is intrigue, romance, action and a realism that comes from his own experiences and is still historically accurate.

    Dick Hill is masterful. I have not always been happy with his narration, but in this book he is fantastic.

    I am really glad i purchased this book!

    Story

    This was the most intriguing Clancy novel in a long time. The very real threat of the Chinese, (see yesterday's headlines of Japan and China) and cyber warfare is as fascinating as it is threatening. No one researches better than Clancy and few know military operations and capabilities more than him.

    Better still, the suspense in this novel is top rate, on the same level as his earlier novels. Lou Diamond Phillips is the perfect choice for this work. His characterizations are spot on.

    In his recent works, Clancy has been criticized for his politics. This is not the case with this book at all.

    Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

    Story

    New series, start with this one since audible does not have these numbered yet, I went to amazon to find out where to start. I have listened to three of these treasures before writing this review. I find these spy novels a little more accessible than Le Carre and less prurient than Littell (both of which I totally love). These novels are perhaps a little quieter and the characters deeper. Although the plots are no less intricate and satisfying. I find a bit of Ngaio Marsh and Margery Allingham here too. Please forgive the name dropping, but if description fails, simile seems to do the trick. If any of these authors appeal, and even if they don't, give this author a try, I do not think you will be disappointed.

    Story

    Once you listen to one book of this series, you will have to listen to them all. One is missing from audible, so sadly you will need to skip it or buy and read it in print. This series is everything you hope a ww2 novel would be. Sophisticated writing, full characters and very good sense of place and time. I was pleased that the undercover plots were not at all far fetched and with just one exception, totally plausible. I loved the fact that the novels are complete with in themselves, but the successive books resolve past plots more completely. Very satisfying espionage interwoven with the everyday life of good and bad people in Berlin during the worst times of the war.
    Great read/listen, you are never disappointed with Simon Pebble as narrator. Enjoy like potato chips, just one will not be enough.

    Story

    I love Alan First. But, pay close attention to the little things. As you listen there are times you want just to savour the language. For instance approx 4:30, there is a moment in the mind of a country dog as it passes a city dog and says " ...this little white fluffy thing that thinks he is a dog, the things you see when you travel...". The moment is sad , a family walking the escape the Germans and this little slice of whimsy. Furst's stories abound with these little moments that you may want to rewind. The novel is great besides, but savour the journey as well. These novels are very noir, but don't blink and miss the poetry. George Guidall gets it and will transport you in to the world of war time Europe in a way you will never forget. Enjoy.

    Story

    This book goes back to the first meeting of Audley and Butler during the last days of ww2 and give insight to their relationship going forward in the series. I am bumbling through since there is no order yet given to the books in the series. Each one is a little masterpiece and not be missed , although I sure prefer to have them in order. Mr Prices writing does get even better and his charactors just continue to develop depth and meaning as we go. This installment sets the stage for the cold war spy novels that follow. The setting is France and you can almost taste the wine. Until just a few days ago, I had never heard of Anthony Price, and as of right now, I seem to be the only one reviewing them. I truely hope that others begins checking them out. I feel like I have discovered a treasure.

    The Gun Seller is a wonderful spy spoof, very well written by Hugh Laurie of House and Jeeves and Bertie, but most important for this review, of A Bit of Fry and Laurie. As I listened to Simon Prebble's excellent narration, I could almost hear Laurie saying the words himself. He wrote this book with a bit of the same cadence and the same prefaces, asides, dependent and independent clauses, and disclaimers as he and Stephen Fry tend to attach to their sentences in their comedy act.

    Laurie throws the reader right into the middle of the plot with the first sentence, and the story goes along at speed. The best this reader could do was simply hold on, enjoy the ride and the send-up of the spy thriller genre, and trust that all would be revealed in time. And most of it was. In the meantime, I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, the ironic dialog, and the plot, which included many changes in direction and plenty of red herrings. Only at the end do you find out which guys are bad guys and which are (comparatively) good guys.

    I highly recommend this book. The only thing that might make it better would be to have Laurie himself do the narration.

    Cold-blooded murder just isn't Thomas Lang's cup of tea. Offered a bundle to assassinate an American industrialist, he opts to warn the intended victim instead - a good deed that soon takes a bad turn. Quicker than he can down a shot of his favorite whiskey, Lang is bashing heads with a Buddha statue, matching wits with evil billionaires, and putting his life (among other things) in the hands of a bevy of femme fatales. Up against rogue CIA agents, wannabe terrorists, and an arms dealer looking to make a high-tech killing, Lang's out to save the leggy lady he has come to love...and prevent an international bloodbath to boot.

    The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.
