This is a long, long book (over 1300 pages) but a very great read which gets very intense in the last third of it. I could not put it down until I got to the last page. Another great Jack Ryan novel.

Jack Ryan has always been a soldier. Now he's giving the orders.

At the climax of Debt of Honor, the most devastating terrorist act in the history of the world left the President, the Joing Chiefs, the Supreme Court, and nearly all of Congress dead. Only Jack Ryan, confirmed Vice President mere minutes before, survived to take the reins of a shaken and leaderless country. Now he must rebuild a government, confort a grieving nation, and become a true leader. Meanwhile, he is surrounded by enemies--both inside the White House and around the world--all of them plotting to destroy an untested President. And bring an already wounded country to its knees.....

My first Tom Clancy book, and I definitely enjoyed it. Until the last 100 pages, that is. Politics is interesting. Meticulous war details are boring. The suspense was well done, and the book referenced earlier events with enough context to allow someone who hadn't read the entire series to get the gist of what happened. Unfortunately, because of the ending, I likely wouldn't reread this book. However, if you're into politics, it's worth a read.

Clancy at his absolute BEST! Modern day thriller with a military/political/tech edge.
