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.” From that day forward, Clancy established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. He passed away in October 2013.

Steve Pieczenik is an author of political thrillers and a cocreator of the New York Times-bestselling Tom Clancy’s Op-Center and Tom Clancy’s Net Force series. He received an MD from Cornell University Medical College and a PhD in international relations from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Pieczenik’s books are informed by his more than two decades as an international crisis manager and hostage negotiator in the US Department of State for the administrations of presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, and George H. W. Bush.

Jeff Rovin sold his first book at age 21 and has been a freelance writer ever since. He has worked as a consultant for television and movies and is a student of martial arts. He’s batty about New York, where he currently resides.

I think that Tom Clancy thinks of Net Force and OP-Center as a literary joke. I'm sorry but I could not see an author of his class dreaming up this ridiulous dribble. Although Op-Center is far better than Net Force it is no where near the caliber of the books he has written himself.

The books ending was so good, I WAS SO THRILLED IT WAS OVER! O my gosh the book jumped from scene to scene like there was nothing else for the writer to do but confuse you. Sure i will admit that the characters were but we barely know much about the main character, we should at least find out after they are airlifted out of the silo or something. But i will never read another Clancy book if this is how he wrights.

Wow, Line of Control was so good that I think it deserves to be a Tom Clancy novel not a series book! It had a huge amount of action and suspense packed into it, it was incredibly intriguing, it was incredibly realistic, it had a very satisfying ending, AND Clancy still somehow gets his political views out through the characters. How does he do it? I don't know, but what I do know is that you should read this book.

This was an awesome, suspenseful, and action-packed TC book. Due to recent events it may be more realistic than anyone would care to believe. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys a thrilling and suspenseful war book.
