I've either read or listened to every other Jack Ryan novel...so I thought I should give this one a whirl. Plenty of other reviewers have pointed out the excessive Clancy droning...and I agree. This book is a little light on the action and I don't think represents Clancy's finest work. But if you are a fan of the Ryan series, then it's an important link to the past for good old Jack. Takes place after Patriot Games but before Red October...and has a pretty cool story. I wouldn't recommend it to someone who is looking to be introduced to the series, it's not that engaging. But for fans it's a nice continued immersion in the whole CIA game that Clancy has dunked us in for the last decade or so.
