Tom Clancy’s Op-Center: Out of the Ashes
By Dick Couch, George Galdorisi, Steve Piecznik
While I have loved the Tom Clancy books, particularly his early works. This book however carries his name, but was not written by him, in fact published well after Clancy’s death.
The story follows an attack on four football stadiums in America which causes the president to reinstate the Op-Centre to hunt down terrorist. The book rapidly introduces new characters and floats around a predictable plot.
There are a few action scenes to generate interest, but they fail to create the tension that Clancy’s books are renowned for.
While the same book by another author would have been a good read, it fails to live up to the expectation expected of a Clancy action book.
