Kelly has his own mission. The Pentagon wants him for theirs. As Clancy takes us through the twists and turns of Without Remorse, he blends the exceptional realism and authenticity that are his trademarks with intricate plotting, knife-edge suspense, and a remarkable cast of characters.

"Highly entertaining!" (Wall Street Journal)
"As quick, compelling and exciting as anything Mr. Clancy has ever done." (Dallas Morning News)
"Clancy's writing is so strong that readers feel they are there, in the middle of the action...Satisfying and engrossing." (Boston Herald)
Having listened to all of the Clancy books on Audible, I really enjoyed this one. I don't think it is his best, but still an interesting story line with a number of surprises. Clancys detailed descriptions and picture painting is always enjoyable. This book does contain lots of profanity. The "F" word abounds. I woundn't listen to is in traffic with the windows rolled down.
All in all a great listen with a great story. Kept me listening through several hours of heavy traffic.
Enjoyed this book, my first "Listening Book" typical of Tom Clancy books I have read in the past. I did however find the narration poor especially when he reverted to female voice.
This book must have been one of Tom Clancy's early works, it had a good plot. The only disappointing issue was the voice of the narrator, it was lame and mono-tone.
I bought the abridged version by mistake and the narrator is horrible. And due to the sloppy abridgment I was often lost and didn't really care about anything going on. My fault for not checking but I seriously wonder who benefits from these abridged recordings.
any other Jack Ryan book that hasn't been abridged and performed badly.
Clancy needs to publish these stories unabridged, I've read most of his books and the audio losses some of the sense of the story.
One of Clancy's first. It's an exciting cop thriller with love, revenge and mystery contained in a suspenseful context. The hero falls i love with a drug addict and seeks revenge for her killer. I can't imagine that kind of life, which is why it 's exciting.
Let me begin by stating that I am a huge fan of classical literature. In fact, within my library this book is sandwiched between Dickens and Hugo.
I downloaded this book on the recommendation of a friend and was unsure if I would really like it. I was pleasantly surprised with this book. It is an excellent and extremely entertaining listen! David Dukes does an excellent job with the narration and does well to keep in good pace with the action.
I will caution the reader that this book may lead you a Tom Clancy obsession! I still love my classics, but John Clark is the man!
Good story, very slow 1st+ hour, the narrator at times was a bit boring, his military imitation was way off he should have done his homework before narrating: "... aye aye sir, the second 'aye' should sound more like ice..." This is a typical ex-military turned vigilante story, nothing special, very long.
This is one of my favorite Clancy books and I was so looking forward to hearing it again. Unfortunately, this is an abridged version which is noticeable in more than one instance. This drops my rating from 5 to 3.
I read the book and had troubles putting it down as I was intrigued of what would happen next. One of the best books I have ever read. I make judgements if I would have the book in my library or not and I would definitely have this book in by library. It is a suspense thriller to keep you on a roller coaster ride. Well worth your money.
