Clark (a.k.a. Rainbow Six) has left the CIA to create an England-based organization code-named "Rainbow." Its mission: deploy an elite squad of American operatives combined with handpicked British, French, and German agents to stop terrorism in its tracks. Rainbow's emergence could not be more timely: in quick succession, the force diffuses three attempted terrorist actions. But Clark becomes suspicious when Russian agents suddenly show interest in Rainbow's work.
Rainbow Six appeals on all the levels that Clancy fans could hope for. The Rainbow operatives, from Navy SEALs to German mountain-leader school graduates, are rendered to inspire with their physical and mental prowess. The book is infatuated with the latest gadgets for scrambling, transmitting, and decoding secrets. And, in a carefully woven narrative that simultaneously traces the Rainbow team, a former KGB agent named Popov, the Australian Olympic security team, and a sinister group of American scientists, Clancy artfully reveals the mystery of "Shiva" at the center of the novel. How does Clark measure up against Jack Ryan? He may be the perfect hero for a world with hidden villains. --Patrick O'Kelley --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
I'm a big Clancy fan but this book was only OK. The action scenes were exciting but there was WAY too much time spent on thought, introspection, and philosophy of the characters... Read morePublished 12 hours ago by paleolithic man

Like all of Clancy's books after Cardinal of the Kremlin - way, way too long. And the plot in this one is just ridiculous. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Reader

I loved every part of this book. Tom Clancy sets everything up for you along the way. This is my first Clancy. I wish this man were still alive. Just a great read!Published 10 days ago by Joe
As typical of Clancy, another spell-binding book that seems so detailed and plausible it's hard to believe it is fiction. Well worth reading!Published 11 days ago by Gerald R. Fulghum
