As a mum to 4 kids, I rarely get time to read, so audio is a life saver to me. The classics are my favorite, but I love finding new writers.

    Two men possess vital information on Russia's Star Wars missile defense system. One of them is Cardinal -- America's highest agent in the Kremlin -- and he's about to be terminated by the KGB. The other one is the American who can save Cardinal and lead the world to the brink of peace . . . or war. Here is author Tom Clancy's heart-stopping masterpiece -- a riveting novel about one of the most intriguing issues of our time.

    Story

    I have a love/hate relationship with this book. I love Tom Clancy's writing. He's so brilliant at characterisation that I am drawn into his stories, even when they are as dull as ditchwater. I loved the characters in this - enough that I was crying at the end - but I did not enjoy the long, drawn-out, meandering story with brief moments of excitment dotted a few times throughout the book.
    Pay attention to the Russian names and the descriptions of the Russian characters, because there are a lot and you will get them confused if you don't take notice. There are a lot of characters in this book, and some of the sub-stories don't really go anywhere - but at the same time, I thought it was an interesting study in the cold war and the possible scenarios that may have occured during this time. I happen to have an interest in Russia having known several Russians in the past, but if you don't have an interest in that country or culture, this book may be hard for you to finish.

    I liked the narrator's voice - a good reading voice, deep, mature and slow, but sometimes it was hard to differentiate between changes of scene and changes in dialogue.

    But still worth a credit to listen to.
