A terrorist bomb explodes during a South Korean celebration of the anniversary of the election of its first president. Alarms are raised in Washington. No one is claiming responsibility. The first suspect is North Korea. Could it be making a power play against South Korea and unification? If so, how will the U.S. respond? Paul Hood, Director of the Op-Center, must answer these questions. The Op-Center, a largely autonomous new agency which takes on the government's toughest security problems, is only six months old, and has never been given a foreign crisis until now. Hood's team, which includes a general, a former ambassador, a psychologist, and a computer specialist, tries to find the solution, only to discover a factor that could change the new world order.

    " I think this book is a okay book. I find it very difficult to understand and I should've read a book in my learning level of reading "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jan Thong | 2/1/2014

    " not really superb with other co-authors and quite predictable "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 William Beck | 1/25/2014

    " Overdone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miguel | 1/16/2014

    " My first Tom Clancy book. Was a nice read and I recommend it to anyone who likes the genre (Politics/Military Thriller). "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jeffwatson | 1/11/2014

    " if you buy anything with Ops Center in the title you are a woeful fool and I will beat you with a stick when I next see you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rich | 1/5/2014

    " An agency established outside the controls of 'normal' government control to do dirty work and save the world... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ralph McEwen | 12/26/2013

    " I enjoyed this book on tape. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 11/8/2013

    " WOOT WOOT! Awesome book, even better ending. Won't ruin it though but its one of the best consirpacy novels ever! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 11/8/2013

    " As I recall, this was the best of the ones I read. A quick easy read with enough interest to want to keep reading. Yeah, but not Clancy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 11/6/2013

    " This book does not belong in my usual selection of books but as the story progresses, you can't help but read more. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shellie | 10/22/2013

    " read to page 12 stopped, never picked it up again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lawrence | 10/10/2013

    " Full of action. Needed a change of pace from the heavy emotional involvement of my previous book. Not that this a light hearted romp, but the action is the star, not the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jay | 8/30/2013

    " ok.....will have to read a couple of more before I know for sure my thoughts. Will have to see how the characters develop. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Drew | 8/20/2013

    " Not the greatest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan Campbell | 5/16/2013

    " Book club choice, which I agreed to out of deference to The Hunt for Red October, a fave movie, by the same author. It takes two pages to describe a missile or an airplane (zzzz); difficult to keep track of which characters were from the North and South. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew Guillemette | 3/19/2013

    " Read this forever ago, like 10 years. Awesome read, my first Clancy book. Loved the characters and the action. Good series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Evan Leach | 9/16/2012

    " Not actually written by Tom Clancy, but not bad. Not great mind you, and kind of forgettable, but a solid read. 3 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter Desilvey | 1/22/2012

    " Pretty good. Nice action a bit of suspense and some drama I liked it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phillip | 10/31/2011

    " This was the first of a series for Clancy, and the first book of Clancy's I have had the pleasure of reading. It's definately a page turner, and leaves you wanting more of the characters in the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fittytiff | 10/24/2011

    " I read this so long ago. But now going through my books and getting rid of some! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doug | 9/8/2011

    " Pretty good, not one of my favorites. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wes | 7/3/2011

    " Still early in my reading. No conclusions yet other than it's a military strategic work of fiction. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Martha | 5/31/2011

    " Sort of good story but Clancy tries to hard to impress us with how much Russian stuff he knows. Who cares the name of each street the heroes cross and the Russian words for so many thinkgs.. NYET! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gerald Kinro | 5/12/2011

    " I liked it. It was published just before the Tokyo subway gas attacks. In this work, Clancy creates a similar attack in Korea. He adeptly described those chemicals of war, tabun and sarin (the one used in Tokyo). Aside from the location and some details, the similarities were shocking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thom | 3/20/2011

    " This is Tom Clancy. Not his best but no one can always hit a home run. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Josh | 3/14/2011

    " Some of the action was too unbelieveable (a chopper to chopper extraction) and many of the plot lines were tied together by characters somehow diving the knowledge of others. Will continue to read some from the Op-Center series but it's nothing too special in my eyes. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Greg | 1/3/2011

    " This book was entertaining, but I'm sure better spy novels exist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 12/31/2010

    " I read a few of these books when they first came out. They are easy reads and enjoyable, but a far cry from a Clancy-written book (light compared to Jack Ryan).

    I discontinued the series, but I note my FIL reads these.
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nana | 7/5/2010

    " Paul Hood, Bob Herbert & Matt Stoll stop a hate group of Neo-Natz's. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Class | 2/1/2010

    " Dear Layla,
    I don't think you should not read this book. Because it is really hard to read. It took 5 minutes to read 1 page. I give it 2 stars. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Olivia | 6/25/2009

    " The problem with military thrillers for me is that I feel like I've been staring at a brick wall upon completion. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Adam | 6/23/2009

    " neo nazi plot, ok but a bit violent, just endorsed by Clancy and not as good as his stuff. Didn't finish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 5/3/2009

    " Kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Fast-read, interesting and imaginative. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 2/13/2008

    " So this is another one in the long line of op center series. As it has some old charaters from older stories it as always introduces new ones. As for the story it brings the reader on a feul packed ride of suspence. I recomend to all looking to feel like a soldier. "
