In For Honor, a chilling new thriller in the New York Times bestselling Tom Clancy's Op-Center series, simmering tensions threaten to ignite when a silo of Cold War missiles surfaces in the Middle East.
In 1962, at the height of the Cold War, the Soviet Union sent a convoy of nuclear missiles to Cuba. The crisis that followed almost triggered World War III. However, while all eyes were on the Caribbean, not all of the missiles were sent to Cuba. Several ships slipped from the flotilla and headed for a fishing village in a remote, frigid, northeastern Soviet frontier. There, a silo was constructed not far from Alaska.
More than sixty years later, that silo and its lethal contents are intact. Now, Iranian scientists team with a Russian agent and his estranged, arms-smuggling father to bring those missiles to Tehran. When an intel officer at Op Center starts picking up hints of the deal, the government’s off-the-grid unit must track the unknown actors – and try to decide whether they can count on data provided by an Iranian defector, a man who has more at stake than anyone realizes.
At the same time, Op-Center sends a lone agent to Havana to try and find an aging revolutionary, a woman, who may hold the key to pinpointing the location of the silo.
Complicating matters is a turf war between Op Center, the White House, and the FBI that threatens to compromise the investigation…as the time to act grows perilously short.
Rovin's thrilling fifth entry in the reboot of the Op-Center series created by Tom Clancy and Steve Pieczenik (after 2017's Dark Zone) presents a near-future scenario in which two nuclear devices, which were secretly shipped to far eastern Siberia during the Cuban missile crisis of 1962, are slated to be taken on a Russian vessel to China and eventually Iran. Involved in this operation are Konstantin Bolshakov, a former Intelligence Directorate officer, and his estranged son, GRU Capt. Yuri Bolshakov, who needs his father for crucial expertise in securing the nuclear missiles. Meanwhile, in the U.S., Op-Center intel officers question an Iranian defector, Gen. Amir Ghasemi, who may have information about this scheme; back in Russia, Ghasemi's nuclear scientist daughter readies the missiles for transport. Where Rovin really shines is in the laying out the various pieces of his plot puzzle until all the elements seamlessly click into place and the book races to the finish. Clancy (1947 2013) would be proud. \n
Weak, not worth the time or cost. Note that I have read all of the Op Center books.
Ops-Center For Honor
This book is very hard to follow, it’s all over the board and just tries to cover too many subjects.. not exciting, Definitely not a page turner, probably the very worse of Clancy’s franchise. Money wasted.
