His work for the CIA is brilliant, cold-blooded, and efficient, but who is he? In a harrowing tour de force, phenomenally best-selling author Tom Clancy shows how an ordinary man named John Kelly crossed the lines of justice and morality to become the CIA legend known as Mr. Clark. It is an unforgettable journey into the heart of darkness, without mercy - without remorse.

I didn't listen in order. it doesn't make a difference as the characters are still true to form. I recommend reading this if you haven't already!!!
Which is more difficult to review. The written word or the same words vocalized by a very good reader. I took every word that Clancy wrote and was assured that it would be excellent. Now hearing it vocalized I have the pleasure of giving it 5 Stars as I did originally.
I read the reviews that said narrator was awful and still bought it. Big mistake. He's just awful.
Just the narrator.
I'm a Clancy fan and enjoyed diving into the Clark character although the story did begin to drag. Overall I enjoyed the book despite the poor quality of the audio.
attention to detail & character development is spot on in this book. I wish the new non-Clancy written books were this good.
I really enjoyed it. The only slight criticism is that it became so complex I had to keep jumping back to make sure I had understood what was happening.
I won't add in a spoiler, but the protagonist's name was Kelly and the surname of the cop chasing him down was Ryan. Sorry Tom, but given the Jack Ryan character you have developed in other books, that was a VERY poor choice of a name beause you have already conditioned my brain to keep thinking of Ryan as the hero of the story.
