This makes Clear and Present Danger...
on June 7, 2004
look like a comic book. Of course Clear and Present Danger was longer, and Clancy yacked about how powerful a rifle is, and how big a ship is, Eyes Of The Hammer ignores ALL OF THAT, and gives us the full action. Eyes Of The Hammer is about Special Forces that sneak into Columbia and to destroy the drug labs.
Bob Mayer of course was a former Special Forces soldier, and the action felt real, and was quite exciting. The plans and the tactics felt real and how the soldiers fought very realistic. Eyes Of The Hammer ignores all of the CIA business, and it just deals with the military operations. The thing I had a problem is that some of the writing was kind of poor, but still I felt this was a strong book. Worth reading.
