A friend recommended Tom Clancy's Patriot Games and I wasn't disappointed. Plenty of excitement and suspense. Can't wait to read my next Jack Ryan series.
"Patriot Games" is a fast-paced book about the world of international terrorism. Terrorists try to strike targets in the states. This was unheard of when this book was first published. "Patriot Games" is worth reading today because even 20 plus years after the fact this book has something to say about the true nature of terrorism and how they win by stealing away our small freedoms
An excellent thriller featuring Jack Ryan, one of Clancy's best characters.
From England to Ireland to America, an explosive wave of violence sweeps a CIA analyst and his family into the deadliest game of their time: international terrorism. An ultra-left=wing faction of the IRA has targeted the CIA man for his action of salvation in an assassination attempt. And now he must pay...with his life.
A really good book, Clancy at his best.
