The US president, unsatisfied with the success of his “war on drugs,” decides that he wants some immediate success. But after John Clark’s covert strike team is deployed to Colombia for Operation Showboat, the drug lords strike back, taking several civilian casualties. The chief executive’s polls plummet. He orders that the unofficial plan be terminated, leaving no traces.

Jack Ryan, who has just been named CIA deputy director of intelligence, is enraged when he discovers that he has been left out of the loop. Several of America’s most highly trained soldiers are stranded on an unfinished mission that, according to all records, never existed. Ryan decides to get the men out.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Bruce Snell | 2/5/2014

    " Book 6 in the Jack Ryan series by Tom Clancy. This is a big complicated book - most other writers could have made two or three complete stories from the various plots and sub-plots, but Clancy in a display of his best writing style makes one all encompassing event of it. The various stories have to do with drug pirates captured and the information they provide leading to seizing almost a billion dollars of drug money and other assets around the world; military special operations troops being trained and sent to Colombia to interrupt the drug trade; and (of course) Jack Ryan coming into his own as DDI at CIA and under-covering the illegal operation and the Vice President's plan to let the troops be murdered in Colombia. This is not my favorite story concept in the series, in that I find the War on Drugs to be a futile mistake, but Clancy brings the characters to life and makes it compelling. For people who have seen the movie (the absolute worst movie ever made from a Clancy story) the book will be a surprise, and will cause most people to ask the question, "How does this book get turned into that awful movie?" "

    " Features the mysterious Mr. Clark, and battles against Columbian Drug lords. Graphic and epic as are all Tom Clancy's novels. This is not a beach read. I love the intricate weaving of various story lines into one. "
