Overview

Seventh in the #1 New York Times bestselling Power Plays series created by Tom Clancy and Martin Greenberg and written by Jerome Preisler.

Competition is heating up between the powerful telecommunications company Uplink International and new technological giant Ambright Industries. To keep Uplink on top, owner Roger Gordian is not above a little “friendly snooping,” especially when one of Ambright’s corporate sales agents disappears under mysterious circumstances. On the surface, Ambright specializes in creating flawless artificial sapphires used in advanced laser development. But, a little digging by Uplink operatives reveals a major flaw: a Pakistani terrorist is using Ambright’s laser technology to further his own political agenda—and it’s only a matter of time before he launches the ultimate attack...on U.S. soil.

This book is set up nicely with an interesting plot about (presumably) artificially-created gems and their 'laundering' through a legitimate dealer. The problem is that there is so much character development and so many side stories, that there is almost no time in the book left for the resolution of the crisis. It seems as if saving the world is a mere afterthought and gets a scant few pages of attention. The premise of the book left itself open to a much richer resolution, I was disappointed when I realized that there were only 20-30 pages left and we were no closer to ending the story. As a result the ending seemed very contrived and slap-dash.

I've read every book in this series, and they never cease to surprise me with their clever, sophisticated plots. Here we get crooked gem dealers in New York's diamond district, Pakistani terrorists set to kill millions in the New York/Tri-state area, and rebel action in Kashmir/India, all tossed into the pot with plenty of characterization. Super!
