Format: Mass Market Paperback
Overall, the Op Center books remain the strongest of the four on-going "Clancy" serials. While not as strong as Games of State or Acts of War, Divide and Conquer makes a solid contribution and continues to build the depth of the series.
One of the things that I enjoy most is the continued development of the on-going characters. This book focuses almost exclusively on Hood and does a good job of continuing the development of his character. In general, I find the characters believable and that they act rationally; I can not always says this about the Net Force characters.
I did miss several other continuing characters, including Rodgers, McCaskey and the Striker team. These characters essentially did not appear in Divide and Conquer. One of my dislikes about this book was just this omission; it ignored almost all of the normal supporting characters. Just as disconcerting, there are hints that the next book will continue this trend.
Additionally, I have a general sense of unease that the events of the last few books are supposedly so close together on the timeline. The pace of the events of these books seems unbelievable.
Finally, it will be interesting to see if the authors ever have the nerve for the main characters to fail, rather than succeed, when they are acting on their instincts...

I'm beginning to read the Op Center series just to see when Paul finally leaves his family and moves in with Anne. Where's the rest of the support team? No one would be fool enough to take on the Oval Office without bouncing more ideas off your intelligence analysts. Hey, Clancy, et al, it's time to delve into the lives of the supporting players a la Clear and Present Danger.
The absence of the Striker team and the backchannel use of the Russian Op Center lends more and more credibility to the writers for a believable story. Yes, it's possible to have excitement without bullets but the action around the Caspian Sea should keep the blood-n-guts and hard-core spy thriller readers occupied. But the mental breakdown of the President? Interesting plot line but I wasn't convinced this was the way it could be done.

I have to say that I was expecting a little bit more. This book is somewhat to far-stretch in terms of who's doing what. Everybody is conspiring against each other and Paul is the man. Well even though he did pretty good in the other book, I think he losing it to Jack Ryan which contains a much deeper character.
With the recent ups & downs of TC's books, maybe he should slow down a bit and work harder on his characters (Op-Center, Net Force, Power Plays, Jack Ryan). We had jack for what, almost 2 decades? Paul's characters will almost have the same number of books in 3 years as well as having a few ones with Net Force and the Power Play so the depth is not there as it was before.
But the book was good enough for me to look forward for the next one, which I hope TC will take more time to do.

Clancy, Pieczenick and Rovlin hit a home run with this thriller that has a lot to offer between its covers. Indeed, this is the best of the Op Center series, and perhaps better than many of Clancy's own projects.
Rovlin has picked up these characters very well and developed them seamlessly with what the previous authors have done. Hood's character draws empathy from the reader better than most techno thriller protagonists.
The plot in this installment is delicious, as is the pace. There are plenty of Whitehouse shenanigans, lots of intrigue...resourceful terrorists pursuit by intrepid and equally resourceful agents. There's even a bit of detente as the Russian Op Center makes a dramatic appearance.
All together, a stellar job by the authors. Its a good read, folks. Questions? email me.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I loved this book. It is wonderfully crafted, and is a real page-turner. It focuses on fewer characters, providing more depth about Paul Hood -- whose humanity makes him one of the greatest characters in these types of books.
The plot in this Op Center is especially good -- very devious and smart. Strategy and deception play a much larger role than military force in this Op Center, which makes the story so compelling. Essentially, in this Op Center, we encounter a Paul Hood who is beginning to get past a lot of difficult personal issues that built up in previous Op Centers. Just as this is happening, however, Paul Hood finds himself in a real maze of intrigue that requires all of his cunning and intelligence.
In short, the best Op Center ever. You will love this one.

I'm a big reader of all the Clancy books, both the hard covers he works on every few years and the series written under his masthead by other authors. This new Op Center, written by Jeff Rovin (as it seems all the Op Centers were if you read the credits in the back of the book), is the best of the bunch. (In my opinion, Netforce and Powerplay series aren't really worth reading compared to Op Center.) In Divide and Conquer, the returning hero, Paul Hood finally confronts his personal demons and gets on with the business of saving the country. The plot is plausable (which is always a good thing in a techno-thriller) and very gripping....I read the book in one sitting and I look forward to the next in the series...sounds like there will be trouble brewing in India....
