“Remarkable...intricate and nerve tingling.”—Clive Cussler

Praise for Tom Clancy

“He constantly taps the current world situation for its imminent dangers and spins them into an engrossing tale.”—The New York Times Book Review

About the Author

A little more than thirty years ago Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore's Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red October--the first of the phenomenally successful Jack Ryan novels--sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it "the perfect yarn." From that day forward, Clancy established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. He passed away in October 2013.

2.0 out of 5 stars Starts well but too technically heavy
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 20, 2020
As a fan of the film and other submarine stories such as Ice Station Zebra, I was looking forward to reading this and was pleased that it had a gripping start. The opening is well researched and even for those like myself who don't have a great deal of knowledge of the time it was written in and the Soviet Empire, enough detailed is provided.

Unfortunately after a few chapters, the detail becomes too heavy and I found the over description of the sonar equipment off putting. I tried in vain to pick this up several times but found that I couldn't finish it. A bit disappointing but if you prefer a great level of detail I would recommend this.
