Overview

Tom Clancy's Power Plays #8: Wild Card by Tom Clancy, Jerome Preisler

The eighth page-turning thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling Power Plays series.

When an anonymous E-mail alerts UpLink International’s operatives to suspicious activity on an exclusive island resort, Pete Nimec goes undercover to investigate.

Located off the coast of Trinidad, Rayos del Sol is not just a playground for the world’s richest and most powerful people—it’s also the headquarters for a joint fiber-optic—oil refinery project run by UpLink and Sedco Oil. What Nimec discovers is a plot to drain oil from the United States’ Strategic Petroleum Reserve and sell it to outlaw nations. And when the island’s highly trained security force is sent to take Nimec out, heaven on earth erupts into hell.

About the Author

A little more than 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.

I have read literally thousands of books but this one is a new one on me. Half way through the book and i am hopelessy lost with so many quick location changes combined with many more characters i have actually become confused. I am sorry but this one bombs out for me.

I wouldn't recomment this "novel" It is not written by Tom Clancy even though his name is displayed. Plot an characters not well developed and a big disappointment all the way around. I love this author, but only when he writes, not when the book is written by some unknown hacks. Don't waste your time or money!
