Praise for Tom Clancy:
'Constantly taps the current world situation for its imminent dangers and spins them into an engrossing tale' New York Times
'Heart-stopping action . . . entertaining and eminently topical' Washington Post
'A virtuoso display of page-turning talent' Sunday Express
Maden (Drone Threat and three other Troy Pierce technothrillers) bases this taut, exciting thriller an entry in the Jack Ryan Jr. division of the Tom Clancy universe on the seemingly mundane premise of a corporate audit. Jack Ryan Jr., partnered with forensic accountant Paul Brown, is working for Hendley Associates, a top financial analysis firm, on a study of Dalfan Technologies, a Singaporean company that former U.S. senator Weston Rhodes intends to acquire. Rhodes has a clandestine secondary mission for Paul: installing a CIA diagnostic program to sniff Dalfan's files for potential cyber-espionage. Tight security delays Paul's infiltration, and as the deadline nears and Rhodes becomes more agitated, Paul suspects his mission is far more sinister. The not-merely-accountants must outrace international assassins and a massive typhoon to thwart a global financial disaster. Clancy fans can rest assured that the state of the franchise is strong.
More Hardy Boys than Tom Clancy
Sorry to say this might have some of the Ryanverse characters in it but it’s a far cry from a Tom Clancy quality read. Simple and linear plot with some jarring writing. Quite disappointing to follow on from the last Mark Greaney books.
