Call of Treason by Tom Clancy-Save your money. After reading Call to Treason I am not going to lie when I say I was a very disappointed with this one. This is the eleventh book in the Op-Center series, and is the weakest story yet. Instead of an international crisis or espionage mission, Op-Center is the target of a budget axe, and must downsize. Most of the characters seem dry and dragged out with no depth what so ever. Instead of being like Clancy¿s other books and taking a military or spy aspect this book seems very political and boring. Dry sums it all up. The book is lacking some of Tom Clancy¿s main book traits such as twists, action, and thrills. Throughout the book it seems as if the book gets hazy and boring unlike the other Op-Center books which are clear and full of suspense. The book starts of with a man named William Wilson who is killed by an unknown assassin, but is presumed to have had a heart attack. Then the story moves into General Mike Rodgers life. He is one of the many officers in Op-Center and knows about the budget cut that is being made. What he did not expect was that he would be one of the first to go. For Rodgers, Senator Donald Orr is interested in a strong military advisor for his presidential campaign run. In the rest of the book the action and dialogue continue being blan and blah while the story line does not improve either. In all honesty the book was not that great and is not worth the ten dollars. I would suggest reading something else and even if you are desperate avoid this book. With a boring story line and shallow characters the mix makes a very boring read.

This is another well written and captivating novel. The author brings insight and knowledge to the political process. Everything is believable and I felt as if this could be happening today. I hope that the Op-center series doesn't stop.
