My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I realized I’d never put up a review of this book and that’s a crime.
This is the best of the Clancy books and gives us, at last, a picture of who and what John Clark really is.
We have seen John Clark sprinkled through the Jack Ryan books up until this point but this is the first (and only, only that I am aware of), where he is the focus of the entire book. We see him come back from war, try to start his life again and then the series of events unfold that will change him forever.
Very intense, very methodical, we watch as John Kelly’s life unravels and John Clark is slowly born.
I cannot recommend this book enough – it is a fantastic read, well worth your time.
