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.

    " I started these books because I wanted something new to read and I like the Jack Ryan character. But he seems to be relegated to secondary character status. Plus, I found the book overly long and had probably 20 or so "main" characters. All in all, it was an OK read, but I found it a bit tedious and am really glad that I am finished with it. "
