Publisher's Summary

For years, ex–Navy SEAL Maxwell Moore has worked across the Middle East and behind the scenes for the Special Activities Division of the CIA, making connections, extracting valuable intelligence, and facing off against America’s enemies at every turn. And then...news of a potentially devastating coalition: What if two of the greatest threats to the security of the United States were to form an unholy alliance? The Taliban is trying to exploit a Mexican drug cartel to which they supply opium as a means to bring the fire of jihad to the hearts of the infidels. It is up to Moore, and his team, to infiltrate and dismantle the drug cartel, even as they hunt for those who would bring the ultimate terror and destruction to the streets of America.In a story that races from the remote, war-scarred landscapes of the Middle East to the blood-soaked chaos of the U.S.–Mexico border, Tom Clancy once again delivers a heart-stopping thriller that is frighteningly close to reality.

The usual Clancy

Have you ever wondered why Tom Clancy novels are so long? It is because he insists on describing every scene in detail, down to the most minor. In this book he describes the training of a Navy Seal for at least 30 minutes. Every weapon is described down to the last screw. Every plane and helicopter takes minutes of description. I figure that he is either trying to dazzle the reader with his intimate knowledge or he is being paid by the word. Another annoying characteristic is his habit of introducing new characters and sub-plots in each sequential chapter so that by the time he goes back to an existing one, you can't remember what was going on. The main plot is ok, but takes too long to develop.

A huge disappointment. Clancy at his worst.

The only Clancy worse than this was Dead or Alive. A huge cast of shallow characters, a transparent, predictable plot, stilted dialogue. A real C- read.

Disappointing

I can sum up this book in one word: awful. The characters were poorly developed, the plot was confusing, and the dialog stinted. Steven Weber was excellent, but he had to hide his head after this turkey. I've read most of Clancy's works and this didn't appear to be anywhere near his usual offering. It is my sincere desire that the lead character does not appear in ANY future book.

I expected a lot more from one of my favorite authors. Perhaps it was "ghost written"? If so, that would explain a lot.

Great Novel on the War on Drugs

Much like Winslow's Power of the Dog, here's an inside look on the CIA's involvement in the war on drugs from an operative's point of view. It's less violent, less conspiratorial, a bit more technical, and still extremely entertaining.

There's no Jack Ryan here so politics really never come into play. All in all I enjoyed this one as much as his others.

An easy 4-5 star listen.

Convoluted

Keeping characters straight and their roles in the plot was a challenge, but that may be caused by the fact that I listened to it rather than read it.

“Just the facts, ma'am”

What disappointed you about Against All Enemies?

It’s like reading Wikipedia, interesting, but not a great plot or story-line. I didn't really care about the characters.

Has Against All Enemies turned you off from other books in this genre?

I guess the Tom Clancy part was him getting royalties for the letting them put his name on cover.

Tom Clancy is dead

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

If I wanted somebody to read to me manuals for weapons or various different technologies I would not have bought this book but have would Googled. Very boring, no story, no plot. Tom Clancy’s brand died with him.

Would you ever listen to anything by Tom Clancy and Peter Telep again?

Yes

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappopointment

Any additional comments?

No

What happened to the real Tom Clancy?

My headline says it all! I couldn't wait for this book to be over! It's not even close to what Clancy usually delivers.

Lots of people's heads exploding

Too much graphic violence, but a good description of a Navy SEAL's training.
Exciting story about a Mexican drug cartel plus a Middle East Taliban group
against the United States.
