Cardinal of the Kremlin
A very good read. I was never bored because there was always something new happening. The characters were realistic and their roles were very well developed. Fun to read.
I've read it three times... Always a page turner!
One of Clancy's best spy thrillers. Set at the height of the Cold War with the tension and suspense to match... Even though I know what's going to happen, I enjoy this book immensely for its immersive prose, just like if you were there. A classic...
One of the more unheralded Clancy books...
But a great read. Great suspense and a glimpse into the world of spies in the cold war.
