    A terrorist bomb explodes during a South Korean celebration of the anniversary of the election of its first president. Alarms are raised in Washington. No one is claiming responsibility. The first suspect is North Korea. Could it be making a power play against South Korea and unification? If so, how will the U.S. respond? Paul Hood, Director of the Op-Center, must answer these questions. The Op-Center, a largely autonomous new agency which takes on the government's toughest security problems, is only six months old, and has never been given a foreign crisis until now.

    Overall

    This was my first Tom Clancy book I've listened to, and loved it. It was difficult at times to try and remember the pile of cast members, and the jumping around style took me a while to get used to, but after a while, the style seemed tight and clear. The reader, Michael Kramer is incredible . .either he's incredible, or they actually used 5 or so different people doing the voices.

    The story was full of the action I heard Tom Clancy was so well known for, and I felt like the story balanced and pulled together each of the story lines together nicely.

    It's 4 stars only because I had to concentrate while listening, and had to backup all the time and re-listen to sections :-)

    Everything starts somewhere. For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997. A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington. Reacher is ordered undercover - to find out everything he can, to control the local police, and then to vanish. Reacher is a good soldier. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, he finds layers no one saw coming, and the investigation spins out of control. Local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux has a thirst for justice - and an appetite for secrets.

    Story

    I'm a sucker for Reacher novels, and this one was great. I loved finally hearing Reacher's last interaction with the army, and to see some of his habits start (folding tooth brush, hitch hiking etc). It was very fun - Lee Child does seem to use somewhat of a 'too coincidental' story model, but it seems to work; it seems like he tells the stories where things simply are coincidental; although his character, Reacher himself would be suspicious. In any event, it was a solid Reacher novel.
