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 loved the story and the politics and espionage it dives into. I can see why Tom Clancy is such a popular story writer for books, movies and video games. I personally have an issue with amount of language is in the book, although I have never been in any of the roles in the story and they might actually be that vulgar. altogether a good read and would recommend it if not for that issue.
Lasted several weeks with a nearly 2 hour/day drive. Didn't like the slow methodical voice of the reader to start with, but got used to it after awhile. Didn't get predictable until the last 5 minutes. Really enjoyed.
I had to press the rewind about 10 times per chapter even though the story was interesting. He read in a very monotone manner.
I had listened to this book some years ago then recently had listened to the Jack Ryan series. Going back and listening to this book that gives the background for John & Sandy Clark was Moore enjoyable now than the first time I heard the story.
Say something about yourself!
Loved the book. I read it years ago when it first came out. It was great to get the back story of John Clark. The production quality isn't up to current standards. Still a great read. Highly recommend.
If you are a fan of Clancy this is a must listen. We learn John Clark's background, loved it. If you have never read (listened) to a Clancy novel this is a great one to start with. If the story wasn't so good the narrator would put you to sleep. No inflection, no voices of different characters, no talent! I would still recommend it because it's a great story.
