Publisher's Summary

For years, ex–Navy SEAL Maxwell Moore has worked across the Middle East and behind the scenes for the Special Activities Division of the CIA, making connections, extracting valuable intelligence, and facing off against America’s enemies at every turn. And then...news of a potentially devastating coalition: What if two of the greatest threats to the security of the United States were to form an unholy alliance? The Taliban is trying to exploit a Mexican drug cartel to which they supply opium as a means to bring the fire of jihad to the hearts of the infidels. It is up to Moore, and his team, to infiltrate and dismantle the drug cartel, even as they hunt for those who would bring the ultimate terror and destruction to the streets of America.In a story that races from the remote, war-scarred landscapes of the Middle East to the blood-soaked chaos of the U.S.–Mexico border, Tom Clancy once again delivers a heart-stopping thriller that is frighteningly close to reality.

    "Against All Enemies"

    A lot of information, It seemed at times that the narrator talked too fast. I have always loved Tom Clancy, but this one was a little too much blood and guts for me. Scary though when I think how right on in his other books he has been on events.

    "Has Tom Clancy has lost his magic?"

    Against all Enemies was a painful read. It is not classic Clancy, by any stretch of the imagination. The plot was week, much of the detail was unneeded and the main characters were not very likeable. Worse of all, Against all Enemies did not seem like a Clancy book at all.

    "Big Disappointment..."

    I've been a huge Clancy fan for many years reading everything he writes, and I have to say I'm very disappointed with this book. It starts off well but quickly falls very flat with story lines that should be important but go nowhere. There's nothing eyepoping about this book, no clever plots, no brilliant weaponry. Even the terrorists "grand scheme" is weak. Very little action and a boring storyline insure I won't be buying the hardcover version as I usually do. I suspect that he's letting others do his writing and slapping his name on the cover to promote sales like many others are doing today (ie;Clive Cussler). Don't sell out to publisher pressure Tom! Write your own material!

    "Not a Clancy Book"

    Beware this is not a book written by Tom Clancy. That fact may not be too bad if the book at least stood up to the shadow of prior Clancy novels, but it does not. I advise skipping this one.

    "Far from a Clancy novel"

    I have read many and love all of the Clancy novels that I've read. This one is far from a Clancy model and is apparently all ghostwriter. Because of this book I don't think I'll ever read another ghost written story. I read Clancy because of all of the military action. This book spends far too much time talking about 'down time' stuff where there is no action and I have no idea (or interest) in what is going on. This book goes in far too many directions and has too characters to keep track of. I can't even keep track of who is a good guy and who isn't other than the main character Moore and that's only because I read his name in a review here! As much as I want to finish this book because I've already paid for it, I just don't think its going to happen. If you're on the fence about whether or not to get this book, save your money and get a 'real' Clancy book. Based on his other quality works, I'd be embarrassed to put his name on this one if I were him.

    "Couldn't finish it"

    I tried to listen to it all the way through, but just couldn't do it. My expectations were way too high. I was expecting a Tom Clancy novel.

    "Whiney Sniveling SEAL???"

    I agree with what others have said, this is a waste of time and money. I am VERY disappointed. I will not preorder again, I will wait for reviews. I also will not by Clancy again unless he writes the book. This one is a garbled mess. I kept wondering why I was falling asleep or saying "who cares" again and again. If I had to take a test on this book I would flunk because it was that hard to pay attention to. The highlight was the narrator and as a testament to his reading I practiced rolling my r's while I was listening to the book. This is a real loser with an extremely unsympathetic main character. Where's Mitch when I need him??

    "Predictable"

    Tom Clancy is a poor writer with predictable plot lines. He writes all his novels with a 3rd person omnipotent viewpoint which requires very little literary skill. I used to be a big fan but think I grew out of him in my 20s though I gave this book a listen to. Parts were interesting and he certainly does a great deal of research but every character is flat, every hero perfect, and the action is so constant that it grows boring. I remember when they attacked Ryan’s daughter in a Washington day care center in Executive Orders – now that was an action sequence!

    "Against Better Reputation"

    I guess that in some successful writers time, comes a moment when cash precedes quality. In Clancys authorship this moment has arrived some time ago. Beeing a fan, after reading Red Storm Rising,its sad to admit that very few stories after this groundbreaking thriller has met these standards. Definitely not this one. A sad orgy in extreme violence and seal-porn. An very one-dimentionally main character. Sorry Tom, but if this is the your new standard you might as well call it a day.

    "Would be better as half the book"

    Maxwell Moore was a fairly likable character with an interesting biography and was, for the most part, believable and not overblown. Other characters were also well written. Some of the scenes were very good and there were some interesting and well-described situations. Unfortunately, these good parts were often separated by a lot of unnecessary details and seemingly unconnected side stories. If I had not been a captive audience on a long car trip, I'm not sure that I would have listened to the entire book. In my opinion the book should have been made shorter by about one-third.
