Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This latest in the Clancy-Pieczenik "Op-Center" series focusing on Spanish civil strife is another well-read, nicely engineered audio offering that seems to suffer by being abridged. Jay O. Sanders does a fine job with Spanish, Italian, and several varieties of American accents, and the listener learns enough of the political and ethnic rivalries in Spain to understand how such an absurd scenario could in fact play out. It's "U.S.A. to the rescue," with too many characters, too much technobabble, and way too much in the way of incredible coincidences to be the slightest bit believable. There's not really much here for the adult listener. On the other hand, Clancy is popular, and many characters appear to be carried over from other works in the series. With that audience in mind, recommended with reservations.--Cliff Glaviano, Bowling Green State Univ. Libs., OH

    This was a great book

    This was one of the best books i've read. Obviously this spanish thing has no idea what it is talking about. This was a great book and anyone not interested in tactical espionage would enjoy it as much as a fan of it. READ IT.

    This book kicks ass

    This is a very interesting book. I think the plot could have been better, but otherwise fine. Nicely done And its does make you think that another Spanish civil war could be possible in the real world.Hood and all the other characters are in there of course.
