Against all odds we have made it into the last half of the 1990s. The Cold War looks solved, Arabs and Jews are talking, confrontation is on the wane. In this new harmony, one discord -- what becomes of unemployed terrorists?

You can bet they aren't going to retire quietly. Shunned by the Soviets, isolated by Middle Eastern realignment, one cadre hits on a scheme to jump-start the war machine. It's brilliant in its simplicity. With a single act they bring the world to nuclear boil. Jack Ryan and Dan Murray sweat to defuse a cataclysmic response.

    " Actually, a pretty darned good follow-up to "Clear and Present Danger," which only makes the precipitous off-the-cliff nosedive between this book and "Debt of Honor" all the sadder. Kind of a last-gasp attempt to wring drama out of US-Russian mistrust, while moving the focus from the Cold War over to the Middle East -- well played, Tom. Well played. "

    " Oh thank God. Thank God it's over. I picked this up en route to Goa a few weeks ago, and I seem to have been reading it forever. As always, Clancy's world is incredibly detailed and credible, in many ways all the more impressive for its sometime parallels to the world we live in today. As ever, the central plot is great. As ever, there's just too bloody much detail for anybody outside of the military to maintain much interest. The characters are for the most part the same seven or eight core people, given different names and accents, and recycled at whim into a cast of thousands. The thousands are too many to keep track of. The detail of what they're doing is too monotonous and minuscule to do anything but slow the plot. And while the writing is functional, watch the inelegance of his point of view switches, requiring only a new paragraph to instigate, making it occasionally an act of backtracking and deduction to work out whose thoughts you're trying to follow. There's a good story buried in here, but it's splashed over so pointlessly large a canvas as to require almost forensic reconstruction to be able to see it. "
