Many of the customer reviews on Amazon express a disappointment with this latest Clancy. The blame is pointed to the co-author who appears to have done more than just support Mr. Clancy. My complaint is it emulates too closely the characters Mitch Rapp created by Vince Flynn and Scott Harvath created by Brad Thor. These fiction leads are virtually comic book superheroes who are highly intelligent, physically imposing, and virtually Indestructible. So Clancy adds "Max Moore" to this genre. He is a former Navy SEAL now CIA counter terrorist expert. Clancy provides the readers with an evil two-for-one pitting Moore and U.S. forces against evil drug cartels and Al Qaeda. After a decent start all suspense is lost, subtlety is nonexistent, and the whole thing goes on way too long. Moore, Rapp, Harvath are attempting to challenge Captain America, however, the Captain is more believable.
