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.

I give, I haven't finished, but I really have to give up before I feel a need to throw myself on a grenade. I keep waiting for the story to develop, a point to it all would be REALLY great. I would settle for simply having a main character,, good or evil, that portends of something good in the near future. I have listened to endless descriptions of Seal training (Thanks but I got that on History Channel) and background of love lost drug lords in Mexico (Thanks again but I got that on nightly news). Hours and Hours and I still have no villain or hero which is OK because I also still have no plot. It is just too bad to keep going. Thank heaven I am not reading the book (which I assume is as thick as the New York Yellow Pages) because I would have to beat myself with it.
audio books are Theater of the Mind when done right. They lift words from a page written by an author and transport you into another world
Blew my mind, action at every turn. Wonderfully narrated by Steven Weber who gave life to Tom Clancey's words. I love Tom Clancy Novels and this to me was one of his best with heart pounding action and many twists.
I've been a Tom Clancy for a long long time and this book wasn't written by Tom Clancy even if he did allow his name to be put on the front of the book. The writing style is completely different. Perhaps he did consult with Peter Telep on this book but Clancy did not wright this book. When I got this book I was wondering if this book was part of the Jack Ryan series. I would have said no until in the last 5 or so minutes of the book Jack Ryan's nephew shows up to recruit Max Moore into 'the campus'. I suppose that will allow another Max Moore book. I guess we will see. Having said all that the book was alright but it sure wasn't great. If there is another Peter Telep book added to the Jack Ryan series I hope Mr. Telep reads the other Tom Clancy books so that he can more closely approximate Clancy's style. The one thing that this book has in common with the other Clancy books is that the story line is complex enough that it requires the reader or in the case of audio books the listener to pay close attention. So to boil it all down. This is a decent book but not an exceptionally great book. Additionally this isn't a Tom clancy book.

Another well done Clancy novel, including the well crafted plot, interesting characters, authoritative documentation and description of weapons. Enjoyable listen and suspenseful to the end. The premise is clear, so no strange surprises.
Say something about yourself!
what can I say just disappointed and I have been a huge Clancy fan for years and is the first book by him that I've ever thought that.
I am a huge fan of Tom Clancy but this book was painful to read. It was way too long, too complex, and too many different stories going on at once without a clear connection. Also, the detail he goes into is simply painful to listen to. I forced myself to finish it but I couldn't wait for it to end.
