This is one of my favorite books! Well, i love almost every piece that Tom Clancy wrote. And certainly, Tom Clancy has proven his diligence in writing this one. I recommend every spy novel lovers out there to try out this one. I' sure just like me, you will never set this book down without finishing it.
