Product Description

From Amazon

This harrowing #1 bestseller is an unforgettable journey into the heart of darkness. Without mercy. Without guilt. Without remorse.

From Publishers Weekly

Avid readers of Clancy's bestselling techno-thrillers ( The Hunt for Red October et al.) know agent John Kelly, code-named Mr. Clark, as Jack Ryan's "dark side." Here, in 1970, Vietnam vet Kelly gets involved in a secret operation to rescue 20 American pilots from a North Vietnamese prison camp. Betrayed by someone in Washington, the mission ends in apparent failure. Clancy balances the military movements with a dark narrative of Kelly's tragic personal life. While mourning the death of his pregnant wife in a traffic accident, Kelly picks up a young hitchhiker named Pam, a prostitute and drug "mule" fleeing her cruel masters. The pair fall in love and set out to bring down the drug lords, but an error on Kelly's part leads to Pam's horrible demise at the hands of the vengeful criminals. After his own recovery from a shotgun blast, Kelly begins methodically to murder his way through the drug ring. Clancy attempts to rationalize this amoral crusade with passages of introspection by characters who are either noble warriors or human scum, but the technique doesn't wash. Although full of failings of style and moral judgment, this overlong, often melodramatic novel seems destined to follow its predecessors to the top of the bestseller lists. BOMC selection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Part Death Wish and part Missing in Action July 1 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Part Death Wish and part Missing in Action, this tells the story of how former navy seal John Kelly became CIA operative John Clark.
Set in the waning years of Vietnam, we meet recently widowed John Kelly as falls in love with a prostitute. She is brutally murdered by her drug running pimp and most of the book chronicles Kelly's quest for revenge, interspersed with the CIA's attempt to rescue american POWs from North Vietnam.
It's not a bad book, but for most part it is just a standard revenge fantasy. Yes we'd all like to imagine what a trained special forces operative could do to street gangs, but the joy of reading a Tom Clancy book is to be immersed in the world of murky and clandestine geopolitics- and this book has very little of that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clancy has Done it Again Feb. 22 2001

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Without Remorse By Tom Clancy
As one of Clancy's best books so far, I believe Without Remorse deserves all five stars. It is different than other Tom Clancy books. In his other books, the main conflict deals with another country, however, in Without Remorse, the main conflict occurs on the streets of America. The book is set throughout the later years of the Vietnam War and deals with the life of John Kelly. The book tells about his beginnings and how he eventually came to join the CIA. Several people who have read other Clancy novels will identify John Kelly as the CIA legend Mr. Clark. John Kelley was still emotionally depressed by the loss of his first wife and his soon to be born child when he meets up with a hitchhiker named Pam. He quickly falls in love with her and he soon discovers about her past life as a drug addict and prostitute. On the boat ride to his island off the coast of Baltimore they befriend a married pair of doctors. The doctors tell him that he needs to bring Pam into Baltimore so they can check on her. But once he enters Baltimore, his life unravels right before him. Some gangsters spot and recognize Pam. They follow John's car and riddle it with bullets. They kidnap Pam and eventually kill her. They leave John for dead but he is just hanging on to life. When John realizes what has happened he cannot deal with the stress of losing another loved one in so short a period of time. He decides to do something. He will take revenge for Pam on the gangsters that killed her. This is when Kelly's history comes into play. John is an ex-Marine. He is also part of an elite group of Marines called the SEALs. He uses the knowledge that he has and trains himself for his task. He disguises himself as a homeless person and starts to stalk drug dealers around the city.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding read Aug. 1 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A real page turner, and probably Clancy's best work. For Clancy fans, this takes an inside look at how former Navy SEAL John Kelley became Mr. Clark. Amazing action, good emotion, and when the protagonist finds a girl who's been forced into a dark underworld of society (prostitution), and the criminals see them and kill her, it's really fun to read how he uses his SEAL training to hunt down and distribute a special kind of justice on those in the criminal world.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Clark Kent Became Superman Feb. 23 2013
By John M. Ford TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
This story is set in Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan series. By the chronology of that series it is the first book, but should NOT be read first. In order to appreciate its finer points, readers should be familiar with CIA operative John Clark and his behind-the-scenes role. This is John Clark's backstory.

John Clark was once John Kelly, a Navy SEAL and Vietnam veteran. He sails, dives and enjoys life. When his girlfriend is killed by drug dealers, John is devastated. His anguish turns to rage as he learns about the trafficking in drugs and human lives in his city, unnoticed by John and almost everyone else. He puts his combat skills back to work as he stalks and kills violent criminals. He also begins working for the Federal government on very similar missions. It becomes increasingly likely that his two lives will collide.

This is an excellent book which explains much about the skills, attitudes and loyalties John Clark demonstrates throughout the Jack Ryan series. Several familiar faces appear briefly in the story, making intriguing connections. Well-read Tom Clancy fans will enjoy these revelations, but they are not necessary to follow the story. The story itself is a good one, but has some very disturbing events and implications. Not for the squeamish.

Excellent book, Tom Clansey is a master at multiple events by the same heroe within one story . I did not like the fact that altough it was supposed to be a new book, it was evidently a used book at new book price

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Nov. 22 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is great. It kept me wanting to turn the page after page. The beginning was alittle slow but that is in all books. It picked up the pace. Tom Clancy did a great job and whenever i think of this book I think of a movie. That's how good he was at describing everything. I still think I watched a movie and not read a book. Great Job here Mr. Clancy

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Revenge! Nov. 2 2001
By Mark
Without Remorse is, chronologically, the first book in the Jack Ryan series. It's fortunate that this was not the first book Clancy published, because he would have had a hader time topping it with his following novels. It's a tough call, but I'd say that Without Remorse edges out Rainbow Six as my favorite Clancy novel.
The story begins with John Kelly, the former Navy SEAL, who has to endure the death of his wife in a car accident. A year passes, and Kelly falls in love with a drifter named Pam. But it turns out that Pam is a prostitute, and her pimps kill her and wound Kelly.
After Kelly recovers, the CIA asks him to take part in a daring raid on a secret Vietnamese POW camp. Can Kelly balance his desire for revenge and still accomplish his mission with the Agency?
The book is fashioned after a classic revenge tragedy, with a twist. Readers may be shocked that they delight in reading the scenes that describe Kelly's revenge. But that's Tom Clancy for you--he really draws the reader in and allows them to associate with the hero through his effective writing.
Without Remorse is fiction at its best. It's not really a "techno-thriller" like the rest of the Jack Ryan books, but it establishes a framework for the stories to come.
