Publisher's Summary

Tom Clancy's Op-Center is back with this new thriller written by the New York Times best-selling authors of Tom Clancy's Act of Valor and featuring a chilling, ripped-from-the-headlines scenario.
Before 9/11 America was protected by a covert force known as the National Crisis Management Center. Commonly known as Op-Center, this silent, secret mantel guarded the American people and protected the country from enemies. The charter was top secret and Director Paul Hood reported directly to the president. Op-Center used undercover operatives with SWAT capabilities to diffuse crises around the world, and they were tops in their field. But after the World Trade Center disaster, in the interest of streamlining, OP-Center was disbanded - leaving the country in terrible danger.
But when terrorists detonate bombs in sports stadiums around the country leaving men, women, and children dead or mutilated, the President executes an emergency order to bring back Op-Center - an Op-Center capable of dealing with the high-tech crises of the 21st Century, and there is a lethal one brewing in the Middle East. A renegade Saudi Prince with ambitions of controlling the world’s oil supply has an ingenious plot to manipulate America into attacking Syria and launching a war against Iran. Next, they would ignite a sleeper cell to attack the America homeland, resulting in a bloodbath unlike any other. Only the men and women of Op-Center, using sophisticated technology, realize what is about to be unleashed. Only they have the courage to issue a warning no one wants to hear. But will anyone believe them?

Very Disappointed

Would you try another book from the authors and/or Scott Sowers?

Tom Clancy is great but this book isn't written by him. The story is slow and misses our all the classical Clancy details.

Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?


Would you listen to another book narrated by Scott Sowers?

He was a little dry but yes.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Out of the Ashes is...

is a book that is so bad it should never have been published It is an insult to Tom Clancy's brand and memory! The book supposedly is classified in the Mystery & Thriller category, but there is neither mystery or thrill. The storyline is lame. Character development is fine for Admiral Chase Williams, but non-existent to poor for the other characters.

Scott Sowers does a fine job of narration.
