9780141804071: Red Rabbit

Tom Clancy returns to Jack Ryan's early days, in an extraordinary novel of global political drama. Long before he was President, Jack Ryan was a novice CIA Analyst. One of his first assignments was to debrief a high-level Soviet defector who told an amazing tale of officials planning to assassinate Pope John Paul II. In the end, however, it will not just be the Pope's life, but the stability of the Western world that is at stake.

Review:

Red Rabbit is an innovative and intriguing entry in the Tom Clancy canon, satisfyingly sketching in details of his hero Jack Ryan's early life. The author can still be counted on to deliver the expected Clancy trademarks: this one is full of intriguing, well-researched detail, and studded with the adroitly staged action set-pieces we have come to expect.

Working on the bottom rungs of the CIA's analysis departments, Jack Ryan is given the unenviable mission of debriefing a key Soviet defector. He discovers a dark secret: there is a plot afoot to murder Pope John Paul. Of course, this is only one aspect of a massively complex skein of skulduggery, and as Jack penetrates to the heart of the mystery (with less assurance than usual--he is younger, after all), Clancy admirers will definitely feel all the right areas are being massaged. Not, perhaps, vintage Clancy, but still a stylish and economical piece of work that grips from the first page. --Barry Forshaw

Review:

Booksellers, oil those tills. Tom Clancy returns to Jack Ryan's early days in a swiftly-moving novel of global political drama. Long before he was President, Jack Ryan was a novice CIA analyst; one of his first assignments was to debrief a high-level Soviet defector who told an amazing tale of officials planning to assassinate Pope John Paul. In the end, however, it will not just be the Pope's life, but the stability of the Western world that is at stake. Clancy's books (such as The Hunt for Red October and Clear and Present Danger) famously lack nuance, but are perfectly tooled machines for raising the pulse of the reader. And Clancy's jaw-dropping sales are the envy of all his many rivals.
