Recensioner

Set in the late 1980s, we find Soviet Russia and the USA both developing laser-based weapons capable of destroying satellites and incoming missiles. If either is successful it could alter the delicate balance of power represented by their respective nuclear arsenals. Both sides have spies in place to discover what is going on and to disrupt progress if possible. The American asset in Russia, codename Cardinal, is a long time and high ranking member of the Soviet government. His cover is blown and Jack Ryan becomes part of the team tasked with getting Cardinal out of Russia.

When it was published in 1988 this was a leading edge novel of spying, tradecraft, military technology and process, international politics and the America versus Soviet Russia paradigm. Today it reads more like historical fiction, but without any benefit of hindsight. The action is exciting and the attention to detail in all areas very impressive. Clancy fetishises weaponry the way Fleming fetishises bling in the Bond novels.

Often regarded as a fine example of its type, I find it to be weakened by the lack of integration and resolution between the various narrative strands, with the spy ring action in America being particularly unformed and less believable.

Certainly a decent read and essential for fans of Clancy's Jack Ryan story arc.

Clancy is Clancy. I don't know why I like the right-wing militant cheerleader but I do. Or did. Eventually, and well before the franchising began, I faded away. Still, this is probably worth a Summer read.

I loved this book. If you're a veteran or anyone who enjoys exciting military fiction you're going to enjoy this book.
