Publisher's Summary

In Dark Zone, a race-to-the-finish thriller in the New York Times best-selling Tom Clancy's Op-Center series, the brutal murder of an undercover agent reveals a plot to incite a full-fledged war between Russia and Ukraine.

Former US ambassador to the Ukraine Douglas Flannery meets with an old friend and former spy near New York's South Street Seaport. She is seeking his help to thwart a Russian plan to overrun her native Ukraine, but those for whom she is working propose an infinitely more dangerous scheme, one that could draw in NATO forces and possibly ignite World War III. Moments later, as she jogs along the East River, her throat is slashed.

Within hours, Op-Center learns of the killing, and alarm bells go off. Director Chase Williams and his team have been following events as Ukraine, her NATO allies, and Russia rapidly deploy forces in a dangerous game of brinksmanship. But the secret that Flannery has learned threatens to take the looming battle to a whole new and very lethal level. Using cutting-edge techniques of cyber warfare and spycraft, Op-Center must respond to the rapidly unfolding crisis before the United States is forced to take sides in a conflict that could change history.

Painfully bad and boring and long book

Save your money and your time. Don't buy. I typically love clancy and op center and feel cheated

Book was long boring and no action. Halfway through just wanted it to end

this is NOT Tom Clancy!

Would you try another book from the authors and/or Henry Leyva?

I'm a Tom Clancy fan from way back. This is NOT Tom Clancy. I fear that the days of Tom Clancy are over, but rather his titles will be in name only

Would you recommend Tom Clancy's Op-Center: Dark Zone to your friends? Why or why not?

Not if I liked them. Boring book. Not Tom Clancy at all.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Henry Leyva?

Almost anyone really--terrible. Michael Prichard is still the best, but probably too expensive for these wannabies.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No--I'm returning to audible

Any additional comments?

I'm not sure how they select Narrators--is it cost? Certainly not talent in this case. Don't the author(s) ever listen to their stories once finished?

too many useless details.

way too detailed. the author went way too far with pointless detail about GPS coordinates and engine model numbers and such. it made the story very cumbersome to listen to.

Dark Zone

The story was not believable, no military leaders I have ever to spoken talk as this writer portray. The performance was lacking , it sounded like everyone is speaking in low hushed voices.

Painful to listen to the end

This is the first of the ops center series that I have not thoroughly enjoyed. The plot was convoluted; the narration was spotty; I just didn’t enjoy it.
