A major motion picture starring Ben Affleck, Morgan Freeman, James Cromwell, Alan Bates and Michael Byrne!
Peace may finally be at hand in the Middle East - as Deputy Director of the CIA Jack Ryan lays the groundwork for a peace plan that could end centuries of conflict. But ruthless terrorists have a final, desperate card to play: They have their hands on a nuclear weapon and have placed it on American soil in the midst of an escalation in tension with the Soviet Union. The terrorists hope to rekindle cold war animosity and prevent reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians. With one terrible act, distrust mounts, forces collide, and the floundering U.S. president seems unable to cope with the crisis. With the world on the verge of nuclear disaster, Ryan must frantically seek a solution - before the chiefs of state lose control of themselves and the world.

"He constantly taps the current world situation for its imminent dangers and spins them into an engrossing tale." (The New York Times Book Review)
"Heart-stopping action ... entertaining and eminently topical." (The Washington Post)
I enjoy reading fantasy, crime and mystery thrillers, as well as historical novels.
It rates as one my favourite audiobooks, not because of the narrator, but because Tom Clancy was on of my favourite authors.
The fact that Tom Clancy was brave enough to let the bomb explode.
The terrorists, drug cartel and Cutter getting their comeuppance.
The sheer length of Tom Clancy's books prevents reading in one sitting.
