Astonishingly close to reality
le 12 août 2014
As once before, Clancy is unbelievably close to real current events in this story, which runs a bit too close for comfort to events now happening in Ukraine.
This is much better than the recent books with various terrorists or unlikely hackers, the Russians have always made good baddies in Clancy's world.
It is a shame though that a lot of the engrossing parts of his earlier books were the myriad sub-sub-plots, sweeping diplomatic actions, and then military operations on a large scale. Here a lot of that is replaced by oh-so-convenient coincidences, and a few commando raids... It doesn't hold one's interest quite as much.
