Colombian drug lords, bored with Uncle Sam's hectoring, assassinate the head of the FBI. The message is clear: Bug off! At what point do these druggies threaten national security? When can a nation act against its enemies? These are questions Jack Ryan must answer because someone has quietly stepped over the line.

I felt Clancy was just kind of philosophizing a lot in this book in a way that inhibited the story. Overall a great read though and a cool story.

  • Red Hot Lies

From the author of the New York Times best-selling Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming (and Environmentalism) comes Red Hot Lies, an exposé of the hypocrisy, deceit, and outright lies of the global warming alarmists and the compliant media that supports them. Did you know that most scientists are global-warming skeptics? Or that environmental alarmists have knowingly promoted false and exaggerated data on global warming?

Overdone

Unfortunately this book does nothing but bash the scientists who agree with Climate Change. Not much evidence is shown to support the authors claims of a terrible conspiracy theory other than anecdotal miles of text.

Once again Michael Crichton gives us his trademark combination of page-turning suspense, cutting-edge technology, and extraordinary research. State of Fear is a superb blend of edge-of-your-seat suspense and thought provoking commentary on how information is manipulated in the modern world.

The book makes you think long and hard about the issues surrounding environmentalism. Although I did not agree with the author's conspiracy theory it was still a very entertaining book!
