This is a typical Tom Clancy novel: either you like it or you can't figure out what all the fuss is about. The story, although written about 15 years ago, is as relevant today as it was when it was written. The multi-level plot deals with Middle Eastern terrorists trying to create a WMD. Will they succeed? Will Jack save the day? Read it and find out. An enjoyable read for those who like Mr. Clancy's work.
