About the Author:

Richard A. Clarke began his federal service in 1973 in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. In the Reagan administration, he was the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Intelligence. In the first Bush administration, he was the Assistant Secretary of State for Politico-Military Affairs and then a member of the National Security Council staff. He served for eight years as a special assistant to President Clinton and was National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism for both President Clinton and President George W. Bush. From 2001 to 2003, he was the Special Adviser to the President for Cyberspace Security, and chairman of the President's Critical Infrastructure Protection Board. He is now chairman of Good Harbor Consulting. Besides Against All Enemies, he is most recently the author of the much-discussed "Ten Years Later," a future history of the war on terror published in The Atlantic Monthly.

From AudioFile:

In 2010 in the Middle East events taking place may lead to another war. Clarke's novel draws heavily on his experience as government counterterrorism chief and is a thinly disguised account of the actual events preceding the war in Iraq. The challenge facing the narrator is to recount a complex story with a myriad of characters from many countries so that the listener can follow the action. Robertson Dean's deep voice is pleasant to listen to, and he is successful at modulating it to fit the dialogue and descriptions. Unfortunately, his accents are weak and inconsistent. Those problems and the minimal differentiation in voices result in a story that is impossible to follow. S.S.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
