As the novel's intelligence chief Bob Herbert puts it, this clash "will make the Spanish Civil War look like a brawl. The intelligence team's efforts to defuse the crisis are foiled when an Op-Center representative is assassinated in Madrid on her way to a high-level diplomatic meeting.
Someone very powerful wants another Spanish War - no matter what the cost.
Now the crew must delicately navigate the treacherous shoals of a planned insurrection by a popular Spanish general and his troops. As usual, Clancy delivers a memorable cast of characters, and he welcomes us into the byways of little-traveled territory in this action-packed intrigue.
Balance of Power by Tom Clancy, Steve Pieczenik | Waterstones
Just not good, these writers should spend more time developing their own style and not try to duplicate Clancy. I would bet their own style and creativity would shine through. I love the entire series so far. Plot is realistic and grounded. Characters are believable and quick witted. Can't wait to start next book! Any additional comments? This book was way off the mark for a Clancy Op Center genre story.
Must have been a contractual deadline book they threw together to meet the obligation to the publisher. Stretch the story to fill the space I had a hard time putting it down, I have been a big fan of Tom Clance for a long time.
Balance of Power (Tom Clancy's Op-Centre, Book 5)
Even though I read the book in paperback some years ago. And even though I listened to some later books in the Op-Center series last month and knew who would make it back home, this audio version of the story kept me up at night! With Steve Pieczenik and Tom Clancy stories I always feel like I come away wiser in the ways of the world and with restored faith in the real life characters like these who put their lives and talents on the line to serve and save humanity.
What did you love best about Balance of Power? What I like best about Balance of Power is the realism of the Op-Center characters and their interactions with each other and their enemies. All are human and die just like everyone else and everyone has an important role to play. Who was your favorite character and why? Maria is my favourite characters just because I love sexy, brave and courageous female spies.
I just finished this book and found the same problems with it as I found with "Acts of War" Too many characters, too much jumping around in the story line and extremely poor story. Pay with PayPal and you're fully protected. Learn more. Report item - opens in a new window or tab.
