    Story

    Cavanaugh, a former member of Delta Force, is hired by a brilliant scientist named Prescott who needs protection from a drug lord seeking the highly addictive drug he has invented. At least that is what Cavanaugh is led to believe. After Cavanaugh trains the scientist in escape and evasion, the unthinkable occurs: Cavanaugh's team is viciously attacked and entirely wiped out - and Prescott seems to be in collusion with the attackers.

    Barbara A. Russell says: "Excellent story, not a dull moment."
    "The Protector"
    Overall

    The story was well set. The agency used to protect the wealthy and famous was entirely believable. The fact that this elite service hired only the best from the various government services was also quite believable.
    I enjoyed the way the author provided background information about the actions of the principle character without boring you with unnecessary lines of trivia.
    All in all an exciting story. I'm now looking for a sequel.

    For three decades, Richard A. Clarke worked in the White House, State Department, and Pentagon. As adviser to four presidents, he traveled throughout the Middle East, visiting palaces, military bases, and intelligence centers, meeting rulers, soldiers, and spies. Some of what he found appeared in Against All Enemies. Much more of it appears here.

    H. Mccartor says: "Well done intelligence thriller by an insider."

    Overall

    The basic story was fair however the author spent far too much time expressing his political view points through his characters.

    It was disappointing to listen to what I thought was a spy thriller and find the book is only a weak story used as a forum to express the author's dissatisfaction with our country's efforts to encourage democracy.
