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"

    Steven Weber did a good job narrating this book. I don't think this book was as good as the early Tom Clancy books. This book had his usual multiple plots going and coming together at the end of the book but just lacked something that was in the earlier books. I like the detail and found the airport security problems interesting as well as the action in Pakistan. I almost feel that Tom Clancy is just sitting back on his laurel and hiring some else to do the hard work of writing.

    "Be patient, it gets better"

    I was lost in the first 4 hours of this book, and almost stopped reading it. I am 8 hours into it now and give it a 4.5. Lots of characters to try to remember, but I am hooked into the story now. It would be nice if it came with a text file of the players. To me, it is much better that the last book. I will update when I get to the end.

    "Against All Enemies is a hit with me"

    I've read most of Clancy's novels and rate this one as a very good listen. It kept my interest, had well developed characters and wasn't too hard to follow. I don't really get the negative reviews. The narrator was pretty good too. I would say listen to the sample and if you like that, get the book.

    "Oh yea"

    I"m a big Clancy fan and have to say i love the length of every book he as written. In my opinion if you have read his other books you would now i hope be used to his great detail about everything. I really like how he makes his main characters feel like they could be someone you know our would like to meet as a friend of course.

    "Clancy, Clancy, Clancy"

    When you put your name on a book, you should read it before it is published. Poor Moore has all of these angst attacks and he doesn't learn from them. When I want tortured souls I will read a romance novel (no disrespect), but I wanted an action book about Middle Eastern drug dealers and the Juarez Cartel. I do not believe the writer has spent time along the Border, much less Brewster County. Definitely not up to par.

    "It's Not Tom Clancy!"

    Peter Telep may have studied all of Clancy's books - if he did, he learned nothing - Against All Enemies is not a Tom Clancy book - other than on the title page. Same for the guy writing for Ludlum, I should have known better.

    Audible - look at the reviews! You should consider giving all of us a bonus credit

    Clancy is great every time I listen - as long as he wrote it.

    To Audible customers who love Tom Clancy - You will HATE this book.

    "Great Novel on the War on Drugs"

    Much like Winslow's Power of the Dog, here's an inside look on the CIA's involvement in the war on drugs from an operative's point of view. It's less violent, less conspiratorial, a bit more technical, and still extremely entertaining.

    There's no Jack Ryan here so politics really never come into play. All in all I enjoyed this one as much as his others.

    An easy 4-5 star listen.

    "Can't Be Clancy"

    I have read or listened to every Clancy book there is and this one is the worst. I think that Mr. Telep's name should be in Bold at the top cover of the book. Shame on you.

    "This is No Jack Ryan novel"

    I recall staying up all night reading the latest spy thrillers from Tom Clancy. His last two novels I regret are not of the same caliber. I was somewhat disappointed by this novel. The best part is the last quarter of the book. I didn't find Steven Weber to be a captivating narrator. I almost stop listening at one point.
    If you want suspense and action stick with Vince Flynn novels.
    Sorry Tom.

    "Painful"

    I'm usually not critical of audiobooks, and I listen to quite a few, but what I grew up loving from Clancy is not here. This is a very bad attempt at creating a "modern" hero. Way to fragmented and frankly incoherent at times. It smacks of ghostwriting by a poorly formed committee, i.e James Patterson's bad efforts. Hope he tightens it up a lot with the next book, otherwise he's lost a fan.

    "Would have made a great movie"

    Tom Clancy does it again. Would go and watch the movie if Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer put their heads together. My second audio book and I was impressed by Steven Webers very accurate impressions of the various dialects involved in the story which made it a joy to listen to. If you like good guys vs bad guy stories then this is for you.

    "Hard work and badly disjointed"

    This book was hard going from the start. It's full of cliches and as cheesy as hell. You have little or no empathy with the main character who is frankly no more than a knuckle headed misogynist dinosaur.

    "Was Tom Clancy alive when he "wrote" this book?"
    What disappointed you about Against All Enemies?

    Rubbish story: people dying for the sake of it; complicated plot for the sake of it; contradictions in the main character's psyche; no sense whatsoever of the true consequences of death or betrayal or torture... In short, this is a video game fantasy for low-IQ, kill-em-all males. It has NONE of the hallmarks of a Tom Clancy story. If this were a script, even Jean Claude Van Damme would reject it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Tom Clancy and Peter Telep again?

    Tom Clancy, yes. I have listened and read everything by Tom Clancy going all the way back to the early 90's. Peter Telep needs to read some Tom Clancy too.


    Which character – as performed by Steven Weber – was your favourite?

    None of them. Steven Weber is a pretty good narrator though, insofar as he can drop in and out of different accents and convey emotion in all of them. But he has a really irritating tick...he does a little gasp before starting to read every line. That took me quite a while to 'stop hearing'.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No redeeming qualities. I came very close to returning it.

    "No stars really."

    I expected this to be exciting, thriller like. To be honest, I suppose it's been written to engage an audience who are wrapped up in the ins and outs of which exact gauge bullet is being loaded into the gun. I would prefer that the hero just shoots the villain, but the devil is in the detail and this slows the action down too much. If I hear the phrase 'eyes widen' once more I'll go mad. I felt this was repetitive and the hero couldn't save anybody. Almost all of his contacts are killed. Poor in a literary sense and not very exciting. My eyes did not widen.

    "Not what I was expecting"

    In short, I was really interested to see a new series based on a new lead character, but possibly a little naive that he could possibly strike a chord with me the way John Clarke (et. al.) did. I never give up on a book, print or audio, but I did with this one. It did start to get going eventually, but to be honest I would rather be engaged from the start and not have to endure. For me, the main character 'Max' was a bit all over the place. I suppose it could be a reach into non-polarising figures ( i.e not a hero, not an expert tactician but a little of everything) but the whole thing just didn't click with me. Tom Clancy is an expert in telling the one story from various characters and perspectives, and you always get the feeling that, while its not tied together from the start, or even 2/3 the way in, that it is building to something, and its a great ride along the way. For a long time this seemed to have no real direction, and by the point it started to go somewhere I had lost interest. It's ok, but if you want to get a Tom Clancy you dont have, get a classic, or if you have them all, wait for the next Clarke/Chaves installment. You wont miss this.

    "Yet another good listen from TC"

    This is the 4th Tom Clancy I've listened to and I've enjoyed them all, and whilst Steven Weber is a good narrator, I prefer Lou Diamond Phillips for these books. Highly recommended.

    "Another great listen!"

    I have spent the last 3 years working my way through every Tom Clancy audio book in order when I walk my dog! This book has carried on the action and suspense of the series of the books. I really enjoyed the plot in this book as it adds a new twist to the Ryan stories. I look forward to seeing how this progresses in the next Tom Clancy audio book.
