John Clark, ex Navy Seal takes on a band of terrorists so extreme that if they win, it would be the end of life on earth. I enjoy Tom Clancy's books very much. The action starts on page one and continues throughout the book with very good characterization, so good that you feel you know the people in the books, good and bad. Highly recommend

I've read several of Clancy's books, not all; this was my favorite so far. Good tight writing, of course, with plenty of action, well-enough developed characters, etc. The ending was a surprise, a completely different resolution than I could have expected--and a uniquely appropriate justice for the bad guys.

Best selling author Tom Clancy goes beyond anthing he has done before in Rainbow Six. It is his most shocking story to date-and closer to rreality than any government would care to admit...
At its heart is ex-Navy Seal John Clark, now the the newly named head of Rainbow, an international task force dedicated to combating terrorism. In a trial by fire, Clark is confronted with a violent chain of seemingly separate international incidents, But there is no way to predict the real threat: a group of terrorists like none the world has seen, a band of men and women so extreme that their success could literally mean the end of life on earth as we know it...

Ex-Navy SEAL John Clark plots undercover maneuvers that few have the experience, knowledge, and survival skills to execute. A champion of U.S. causes overseas, Clark faces his greatest challenge yet when he takes on a group of cold-blooded environmentalists bent on threatening global safety.

My grown son has been a Tom Clancy fan for many years. However, I never read one of his books before as I don't like books about the military and special ops. But I loved this book and had trouble putting it down until I finished--and I'm 61 year old woman. Although it centered around a special international group formed to combat terrorism around the world, there were several subplots that created suspense and kept me guessing.

The sub plots were skillfully weaved together and made total sense by the end of the book. One subplot concerned a former KGB spook who paid terrorist groups to plan and launch several attacks in Europe. The spook received his orders and funding from a wealthy American businessman. There were also the women who were kidnapped off the streets of New York City.

The ending was ingenious. The group of fanatic nature lovers finally got to commune with more of Mother Nature than they could handle. Poetic justice.

another "john clark" book. Written in the tradition of "clear and present danger" or "patriot games". If you enjoyed these, then you will enjoy rainbow six.
