His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the bestseller list after President Ronald Reagan pronounced it ���the perfect yarn.��� Clancy was the undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. He died in October 2013.

���



Martin H. Greenberg���was honored in 1995 by the Mystery Writers of America with the Ellery Queen Award for lifetime achievement in mystery editing. He is also the recipient of two Anthony awards.

This book purports to be a Tom Clancy - it is not!
Mr. David G. Summers
The fact that the author can keep a stream rambling for pages at a time is testimony to the fact that he was not interested in the main characters in the least.

I kept expecting something imaginative to happen but it didn't.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Before sitting down to write my review, I checked out some of the negatives that have been posted, and am kind of shocked. Have these folks read the same novel I did? If so, they either have some hidden agenda and are lying about what they read, have skipped scenes, or don't understand anything more sophisticated than Archie comics. For example -- a couple of the reviews state there's no action. Yet I'm looking at my copy now and counting action scenes in order . . . a murder in New York to start things out, a rock 'em sock' em fistfight in Chapter 2, a firefight sequence between rebel and army forces in India/Pakistan, ANOTHER murder in New York, more action in Pakistan . . . and I haven't even gotten halfway through the book here. Also without spoiling the climax, there's a motorcycle chase on the New Jersey Turnpike as our heroes attempt to save millions of lives!
Too many details? Where? What kind of details? I WISH somebody would be specific, so I could take their criticisms seriously. But nobody here is saying anything concrete.
And what's with the guy who said he didn't know who the heros/antiheros are? What exactly does that mean? Could he please explain? I see a lot of heroes and villains who have clear and well portrayed motivations and are neither perfectly good nor bad, but HUMAN . . . like all of us. If you want human nature boiled down to simple, unrealistic absolutes, stick to those comic books I mentioned . . . Superman doesn't come around to save the day in adult thrillers. On the other hand, if this individual had realized this is a SERIES book, he might know who was whom.
Anyway, as a huge fan of the POWER PLAYS series, I hope I haven't let my annoyance get the better of me. Maybe I'm overreacting.

This book is not worth reading. I made the mistake of not putting it down despite the horrible condescending tone of the author, waiting for the book to get better, hoping the rambling, unconnected attempts at a plot would congeal into something of substance. IT NEVER HAPPENED. I don't think I have ever been so disappointed and mad at myself for wasting my time on a novel before. Indeed, I have never been driven to write a review before but hope I can save someone the pain of reading this poorly written, uninspired pulp.
How can Clancy let his name appear on the cover?
I am also going for another first here. I'm going to tear the book apart and throw it in the trash. It needs to be recycled.

Format: Audio CD
This book could have been boiled down to about 50 pages. There was no industrial espionage, as touted on the back cover, between UpLink and the rival outfit (I can't even remember the company's name - a great indication of how forgettable this "book" is.) Uplink, and its employees seem to play a secondary role as the author seems to be more interested in showing off his knowledge of the New York jewelry community's inner workings.
The author also seemed to want to show off his walking tour ability of New York, and to whine about restrictive smoking regulations and where to get a good cup of coffee. The parts with Gordian erecting a rock wall (and no explanations of metaphors, please!) are complete throw-away scenes intended to pad an already over-long, meandering, almost stream-of-consciousness novella. The fact that the author can keep a stream rambling for pages at a time is testimony to the fact that he was not interested in the main characters in the least. An entire paragraph devoted to the inventory of a Chinatown shop? Come on!
I like meat on my bone. This awful story left me starving.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I really like the Power Play series. Its hero, Rodger Gordian, seems like a great example of a concerned businessman. Roger who? His appearances in this book were at best unnecessary. Or mabe it as necessary for him to play a REAL part in the plot instead of trying to build a wall at his retirement home. This book was just plain awful. I was more than half way through it and realized that I didn't even know what it was about. A salesman gets killed. Why? I don't know. His girlfriend gets killed. Why? I don't know. Somebody has some incredible gem stones and is worried about where they came from. Why? I don't know. And so it goes. I agree with other reviewers that this book could have been a very credible short story. Either that of we should have been told earlier why whatever was supposed to happen was so allegedly dangerous. Sorry, I really wanted to like this book, but I didn't and recommend that you don't buy it. Not worth it.

I wasn't even planning to write a review but saw the one by Mr. Nostrum (hope I got the spelling right) and had to agree. This is one of the best books I've read all year -- I especially liked the parts set in New York City that involved the Diamond Dealers Club. How on earth did Mr.Preisler get inside information about one of the most secretive organizations in the world? As a New Yorker, I loved the author's obvious passion for the city. As a professional in the diamond and gem industry, I was fascinated by his explanations of modern counterfeiting techniques for diamonds and sapphires . . . and how those same techniques can be applied to acts of terrorism.
