America's most proficient covert operations team, hand-picked for its intelligence, analysis, and crisis-management skills, has had many a tough situation thrown at it. Years ago, before North Korea made its belligerent intentions known to the world, Op-Center's first mission was to thwart a crisis on the Korean peninsula. Since then, it has dealt with the machinations of Russian hard-liners, prevented the resurgence of age-old hatred in Germany, gone underground to prevent Kurdish terrorists from destabilizing the Middle East, subjugated the tensions of rebellious Basques, rescued the entire United Nations from mercenaries, and prevented an all-out war between India and Pakistan. Is it up to the challenge of preventing the next war? Absolutely.
Prolong the suspense: listen to more titles in Tom Clancy's Op-Center series.

I'm not really able to say because I could not bring myself to finish listening to the book. The narrator was very good but the script was unbearable.
Yes, it could have turned me off Tom Clancy's books but I have listened to a few others of his books which were very interesting.
I have listened to other performances of Michael Kramer before and they have always been phenomenon. He performed very well here but this script was a really bad one. After every sentence the author would write: "He said, she said, he responded ..." and these became rather unbearable to listen to after a while, so I decided to return the book.
I would like to see it as I know the actors will not use the script word for word. I believe the story is a good one. I usually listen to my books after a long day at work to unwind and relish an exciting world of fantasy and not to be stressed out with an annoying repetitive cliche.
Do not be put off Tom Clancy's book by this one, he has many more you can enjoy.
