Publisher's Summary

Tom Clancy's "genius for big, compelling plots" and his "natural narrative gift" (The New York Times Magazine) have established him as one of the preeminent storytellers of our time. In this most extraordinary novel, Rainbow Six, Clancy goes beyond anything he has done before.At its heart is John Clark, a master of secret operational missions, and newly named the head of an international task force dedicated to combating terrorism. Clark tries to figure out where a recent string of terrorist attacks is heading, but there is no way to predict the real threat: a group of terrorists like none the world has ever encountered, a group so extreme that their success could literally mean the end of life on this earth as we know it.


What the Critics Say

"[Clancy] writes action scenes beautifully. John Clark is a gratifyingly distinctive, three-dimensional hero." (Entertainment Weekly)
"The charged clouds of good and evil build toward a typically foreshadowed and explosive Clancy finish." (Kirkus Reviews)

Narrarator was horrible.

This review has nothing to do with the quality of the book itself. I could not finish listening to it because the reader read in sporatic bursts. It was if he was reading the book for the first time and was unsure what tone to use or at what pace to read the passages.

GREAT BOOK! (the narrator isn't that bad)

I was real nervous about purchasing this book due to the issues everyone seems to have with the narrator. I took a chance, and let me tell you...GREAT BOOK!!!!! The narrator is not as nearly as bad as everyone is making him out to be. He is not the best, but I followed him without a problem and he DEFINITELY did not ruin the story! (It's only a book people! Being just a little to picky!) The story was compelling, the plot got better and better with every moment and the there was never a dull point. If you like military or spy novels, this is the book for you!
