The novel keeps the novel real and along with this crisis Op-Center is trying to solve, Paul Hood is faced with a lover that abandoned him years before he got married. So along with this exterior conflict, you have a very intimate interior conflict. Along with this there are some very intense action sequences. For example, when Bob Herbert was being chased by Neo-Nazis, I was on the Edge of my seat.
There is only one main problem I have with this book and it is the fact that it's slow moving and I almost gave up on it. But besides that, I really enjoyed this book.
This is the best book in the Op-Center series, hands down. I highly reccomend this book to anyone who enjoys reading.
Positives: This was very well written. The way it flowed it really made me want to continue on. Use of gadgetry was studied, believable and just interesting. Recommended.
I am german, a citizen of Hanover, where Clancy set much of his plot - and the connection between real events and the story plot would make SOME research neccessary, I guess. But all the research found in this novel is reading a roadmap of Germany, and even that is done badly. Anything else is pure fiction, and the relation to real events is only in the name.
Where is the author that takes up so much time researching things BEFORE writing? THIS thing is just making money...
Imagine a group of psycho neo-Nazis trying to take over the world through the use of computers. This idea to me is a little far fetched even for Clancy. Read more
