This is one of the Op-Center books. You expect Clancy style and polish and you get something different than you expected. My wife quit after 50 pages. I stuck it out and finished it. It is a détente type of book with electronic surveillance the center of the technology. It’s set after the collapse of the
Soviet Union and diehards are trying to resurrect it.
The plot wasn’t bad but the writing felt disjointed. There was decent action and some good characters but they did not feel properly fleshed out.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
