Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Listening to narrator Scott Brick is such a pleasure, and this spy thriller from the 1990s is no exception. Brick portrays brilliant CIA analyst Jack Ryan in the manner of a world-weary veteran. His laconic, partly humorous, and vaguely disillusioned tone captures the essence of Ryan. While the Cold War is over, Clancy’s suspenseful story and well-crafted characters are relevant even today, especially the character of a younger Putin. Brick’s Russian accent adds to the story’s atmosphere, and he handles the convoluted plot well, subtly slowing his pace to allow listeners to digest the material. This pairing of outstanding plot and spellbinding performance promises listeners an entertaining experience.” AudioFile
“Gripping narrative…Navy buffs and thriller adepts have been mesmerized.” Time
“The plot is coherent, the reading easy and the matrix of encompassing detail almost frighteningly genuine. Mr. Clancy has done a terrific job describing the deadly cat—and—mouse game played by submariners.” Wall Street Journal
“Absolutely terrific: entertaining, suspenseful, and masterfully written…superlative.” Washington Times
