No complaint, great packaging. If your a fan of Tom Clancy then you'll not complain. You'll enjoy this book just like the other Tom Clancy's books.

I do not like Tom Clancy. I despise his totalitarian amoral politics and I canNOT stand him slapping his readers with them in his latest oversized and underwritten duds.

However, Tom Clancy was once an EXCELLENT technothriller writer. He might not have invented the genre, yet he launched it into the stratosphere.

This is HIS BEST BOOK and it is actually very good.
The mid-80's Cold-War atmosphere, the paranoia, the double-agents, the clandestine methods and the hardware are all expertly presented.
Now, him being, well...Clancy there still are stereotypes and bigoted characters galore. Deciding to overcome this however, the reader can actually enjoy this one.

Do not judge CARDINAL OF THE KREMLIN based on his deteriorated career.

After reading more action-intensive novels from the "Ryan-verse" such as "Rainbow Six" and "Patriot Games" I found this book to be more on the political side of things. This made for a suspense filled and exciting story in the world of espionage.

I had been meaning to read "Cardinal of the Kremlin" now for several years. Published in 1988, it is one of the older Jack Ryan technothrillers, one that I had bypassed when I started reading Clancy's works, first "Red Storm Rising" and then beginning the Jack Ryan saga with "Clear and Present Danger." I had - with the exception of "Without Remorse" and the newly published "Red Rabbit"- read all of the other subsequent books, and those books that I did not read I had seen the movie version (namely "The Hunt For Red October" and "Patriot Games"). I had resisted reading this one, or perhaps I should say I hadn't placed a high priority on this one, as they never filmed it, and it was a book very much steeped in Cold War intrigue, much of the novel taking place in the Soviet Union and involving two staples of the last years of the Cold War; "Star Wars" or the Strategic Defense Initiative (or to be more precise, something equivalent to it in the novel, a high-tech antiballistic missile or ABM system) and the Soviet war in Afghanistan. I was worried it would be antiquated, or that it would depict a Soviet Union that didn't really exist, as the collapse of the USSR in the late 1980s/early 1990s showed that how little the West really understood what the reality of the Soviet Union actually was.
I decided to read the book recently, partially to say I had read all of the Jack Ryan novels, partially because I wanted to know more of Ryan's history (events in this novel were referenced several times in Clancy's later works), and partially because I had decided to treat it as a period piece (and I have in the past enjoyed good tales of Cold War intrigue).

I had a tough time deciding between 3 and 4 stars on this one, so I think I will actually give it 3 1/2 stars. I think the story was good and mostly believable. Clancy gives a great deal of realistic information on spying as well as counter-espionage during the Cold War. Certain parts of the plot require the reader to suspend their disbelief a great deal. This book is fun and exciting to read and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the genre (or thinks they might be).

The Cardinal of the Kremlin, though outdated because it involves the Cold War, is still an exciting read. It is a great spy-thriller. However, if you're looking for an all-out, smash-bang action story reminiscent of the James Bond novels, then this book isn't for you. That isn't to say that it doesn't have any action or thrills in it; it is certainly an exciting and fast-paced read. Tom Clancy's main hero Jack Ryan returns as the famed CIA analyst and attempts a staggering coup aimed at the Soviet KGB. CARDINAL is a CIA mole who has infiltrated the Kremlin in Moscow, and he is the CIA's most trusted agent in the Soviet Union. The story has a great Cold War theme. Clancy makes the book even more intriguing by blending in the story of the Afghan freedom fighters and their fight against Soviet occupation. All in all, I consider this one of the best books Clancy has written. Highly recommended!
