Intrigues are afoot to wrest UpLink Communications and its encryption program away from its owner, Roger Gordian. So good-guy Gordian assembles a maelstrom of operatives, congressmen and writers to fight back. According to the publishers, this novel is "created" by Clancy and Greenberg, who press the viewpoint that not all information is useful and that encryption technology in the wrong hands could jeopardize national and world security. The action sequences are strong and well paced; one only wishes the creators had spent some time on the one-dimensional characters. Gordian is as plain as they come, and most of the secondary characters are interchangeable. The book will be of most interest to those who are knowledgeable in encryption-technology issues and who have read the first in the Power Plays series, Politika. It's worth noting that the Power Plays series began with a computer game.

I like Clancy, but this one was a little hard for me to follow. Still, the last half of the book was pretty intense.

I was in the military. Tom Clancy wrote it. So of course I have it. But I didn't buy it, it was given to me. This is from the power plays series and I just couldn't get into it.

Based on a Tom Clancy novel isn't the same as a Clancy solo novel.
