Balance of Power: Tom Clancy's Op-Center #5

The Op-Center team heads for Spain, where ethnic conflicts threaten to break out into a conflagration. As the novel's intelligence chief Bob Herbert puts it, this clash "will make the Spanish Civil War look like a brawl." The intelligence team's efforts to defuse the crisis are foiled when an Op-Center representative is assassinated in Madrid on her way to a high-level diplomatic meeting. Someone very powerful wants another Spanish War - no matter what the cost. Now the crew must delicately navigate the treacherous shoals of a planned insurrection by a popular Spanish general and his troops.

    "Where will the balance shift?"
    What did you love best about Balance of Power?

    What I like best about Balance of Power is the realism of the Op-Center characters and their interactions with each other and their enemies. All are human and die just like everyone else and everyone has an important role to play.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Maria is my favourite characters just because I love sexy, brave and courageous female spies.

    "Misleading author claim"

    I just finished this book and found the same problems with it as I found with "Acts of War" Too many characters, too much jumping around in the story line and extremely poor story. I would give it zero stars if that were an option.
