About the Author

Thirty years ago Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore's Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it “the perfect yarn.” Since then Clancy has established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense.

Peter Telep is a New York Times–bestselling author who has written almost forty novels spanning many genres, including science fiction, fantasy, military action/adventure, medical drama, and film, television, and video game tie-ins. A produced screenwriter of both live action and animation, he teaches creative writing, fiction writing, and scriptwriting courses at the University of Central Florida.

I downloaded the book in the NOOK format. The technology of NOOK is fine, however, I can't help thinking I've been swindled. This is NOT a book written by Tom Clancy. It is somewhat disgraceful that he would let his name appear on the cover. By the way, for Mr Telep, Iraq had Republican Guards...Iran is the one with Revolutionary Guards...

Tom Clancy has always done a great job of making his stories exciting and believable which makes me believe he didn't do much more than add his name to this book. The main character is running around, blowing away bad guys with a pistol in each hand like some kind of John Woo film. The author's attempts to make you feel the character's emotions are poorly thought out filler between his unrealistic action sequences. If you're a Clancy fan, give it a pass, it'll leave a bad taste in your mouth.

Normally, when I get a new Clancy I can't put it down until I'm finished. This one was tough slogging. I'm still waiting for it to get to the good part.

I love real Tom Clancy books. His character come alive and the reader can get attached to them. I quit reading this one after 250 pages. I just couldn't get into it. The characters just don't make it. I picked up one of my old Clancy favorites and decided to reread it instead.

I might pay these prices for a book actually written by Tom Clancy, but certainly not for one he didn't write. I refuse to be sucked in by any more of these types of books written by others and using a famous authors name. I have read way too many of them that are pure junk.

I have enjoyed each and every book Tom Clancy has written. I find that the books he has "co-authored" are of much less quality. This book in particular has an extremely weak plot line, is very poorly researched, the characters are stereotypical and shallow and there's way too much psychological wallowing. It will be a long time, if ever, before I purchase another "co-authored book" with Tom Clancy's name on it.

Very poor plot. Clancy should never lend his name to such a piece of crap. Nothing in it at all that makes a reasonable story. All excessive gratuitous violence and unbelievable adventures. On 1-10, this rates less than 3. Nothing in it of the quality of Hunt For Red October and Patriot Games. This will be my last book associated with Clancy, even if he claims to be the ONLY writer.

Tedious, and overwhelmed with obnoxious detail.

This was my least favorite Tom Clancy novel. The story is very action packed but at times the book felt very unrealistic. The main character Moore seemed to be a super hero surrounded by inadequate flunkies. Moore incredibly survives impossible situation after impossible situation while many of his supporting characters die without much emotion felt by the reader.

Sorry Mr. Clancy. I loved your first books, but the last few (especially the last two) have not been very good. I hoped this new one would be better than Dead or Alive, but Alas, it was not. There does not seem to be a consistent plot, there is to much jumping around, the idea of the book seems hard to catch on to. Hopefully in the near future the "old" Tom Clancy will magically re-appear. Good luck!!!!

Walmart approach vs Macys...make your profit on volume, not on each sale. I will wait or find a tear off. Clancy did not even write this probably. The sample does not read like Clancy.

This book has none of the quality of deccription, detail accuracy, plot coherency, and immediacy we've come to expect from the very first Clancy. If this is all Clancy can do these days, he needs to stop writing and retire. This reads like the "inspired by" crap like Power Plays and Op Center. Very disappointing and over priced besides.

Having read every Tom Clancy book since "The Hunt for Red October" I can honestly say this is the most disappointing. Tom Clancy appears to be lending his name to books written by someone else, without that author ever reading his works. A decent book to kill some time, but nothing I recommend to any of my friends.

Unlike many of the last reviews posted here, this review is not about the price of the eBook. This review is about the content of the book itself. This was a great read, and one of the characters in tbis book, Moore, reminded me a lot about Clark, another character in a few of Clancy's other books! This book consumed me, and I finished reading it in less than a week! The action is constant, and, as always, one must keep track of all of the detail that Clancy includes in his novels. The writing flows, and it seemed like I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to find out what was going to happen next. I hope that Clancy continues to write more stories with Moore as one of the characters. I also hope that he writes more stories with the Middle East as the backdrop. The only thing that disappointed me about this book is that it ended much too soon!

I am , correction-have been, a fan of Tom Clancy. I thought that his last book was not written entirely by him. This one, I feel, doesn't have any of his handiwork. No character development, no connection with the characters and a poor rambling all over plot. I won't buy any more Clancy books and waste my money, no matter the price.

Against All Enemies: Tom Clancy . . . Back in the mid-80s, what kept me running regularly was a tape of The Hunt for Red October, Tom Clancy's first thriller. As it flowed to my ears through my Walkman, I ran longer and farther than I ever had before-or since. Now fast forward to today. Just a few minutes ago, I finished Against All Enemies, Clancy's latest mystery/thriller. And, let me start out by saying that it's vintage Clancy. It's a cross between an engineering course, a military and/or spy-craft training manual, and a race across the world in a chase-'em-down-shoot-'em-up spy style. The body count keeps growing throughout, good people and bad people, and some deaths almost brought me to tears, others I cheered when they met their inglorious ends. This novel is up-to-date and touches on almost every issue we read or hear about in the world we live in today. One truly remarkable section of the story deals with Navy SEALS. All of us who followed the story of the SEALS and Osama Bin Laden couldn't help but wonder-how in the world do they do those kinds of things? Tom Clancy will tell you. And what you read will only increase your appreciation and admiration for what they do in service to their country. His central character in this book is a former SEAL. Clancy includes exhaustive-no pun intended-detail about the unimaginably grueling training SEALS undergo. After reading it, I was not only worn out myself, but I swear my muscles actually ached in sympathy. Clancy's research for his novels is so thorough and his connections in the various fields he writes about are so extensive that I am certain what he's described is truly what SEALS go through. The story connects two of the major concerns in the intelligence community, law enforcement and the military today-terrorism and drug smuggling. The story reaches across thousands of miles and wildly different cultures and offers a really scary scenario of what can happen when evil-doers of different stripes find common cause even though toward differing ends (think of how a tunnel between Mexico and the U.S. could be used). Clancy's fictional stew mixes people from Pakistan, Mexico, the U.S., Columbia. He throws in drug dealers and cartels, spies of various nations, law enforcement good and bad, engineering marvels, and describes in Clancy-style detail an entire panoply of the most modern weaponry available today. Some of his so-technical descriptions of weapons, ammunition and their uses doesn't, in my estimation, do much to move the story forward. It's a very long read, but there is enough excitement in it overall for almost anybody's entertainment. If I were the youngster I used to be, I'd get a tape and go running, no, actually, I'd walk. But I did read much of this while on an elliptical strider at my health club. Time flew . . . . Against All Enemies has just about everything a Clancy fan would expect.

As a former avid Clancy reader, and recent Brad Thor and Vince Flynn fan, I must say this is a weak attemp to recapture the past glory of Clancy's novels. Again, I love "old" Clancy, and have enjoyed previous series, but by the middle of this book, I didn't care about the main character and could care less how the book ended.
Mikeeman More than 1 year ago
This is really 2 books--one regarding Mexican drug traffic and one predicting the next terrorist attack on the U.S., thinly stiched together. It's all over the place geographically and is redundent to the point of nausea in the trials and past tribulations of the main character. We get it the first time Tom--He's haunted by his past. Too many characters to keep track or identify and too much technical information on weapons, bullets, planes, etc. Was the author getting paid by the word??? On the other hand, I'm proud of myself--It was a struggle, but I made it through the book. If your using this review as a guide to decide on whether you want to read the book or not--find another book.

Thanks to the review section, I have saved $$$ on this book. I too am (was) a major Clancy fan and I waited 6 years for his last book Dead or Alive and was disappointed BIG TIME. I was prepared to buy this one with the hope it might be better until the reviews from other Clancy fans mirrored those for Dead or Alive. Clancy had no equal and I sure would like the old Tom back. So Tom, either give up your "with partners" and write or retire.

This has to be one of the most poorly written books with Clancys name on it. He should be ashamed to even allow this thing to end up in print with his name on it. I think he needs to start writing again and stop putting his name on books that others have written.

BN should not sell ebooks if they are going to charge outrages prices for them. I will not buy this book! Last book was disappointing anyways. This should be discounted highly to get people to read Tom again.
MTT3107 More than 1 year ago
It is quite obvious that the only writing Tom Clancy did on this, was to sign the contract... Does not even come clos to any of the "real" Clancys. Disjointed, confusing story line. For the life of me, I cna't figure out why he would le his reputation be tarnished by having his name associated with this drivel... You wuld think that after the success of all his other writings, he wouldn't need money that bad.

Very discouraged with this book. Like other posters i agree this book jumps around so much i would recommed dramamine if you get motion sickness definitely at the bottom of my list for Clancy novels
