In this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller, author Tom Clancy takes readers into the shadowy world of anti-terrorism and gets closer to reality than any government would care to admit...

Ex-Navy SEAL John Clark has been named the 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 ever encountered, a band of men and women so extreme that their success could literally mean the end of life on earth as we know it.

The hit Tom Clancy novel that inspired the video game!

Non-stop action! This book is the real deal when it comes to Techno-Thrillers!

First Tom Clancy novel I have read. Pretty good book. Like I said, it is the first that I have read of his, so I found it hard to follow at first as there are several subplots. However, he ties them all in nicely in the end. I plan on reading all of his John Ryan books now, but not in the order that they came out. I am going to follow the timelines in the story. Out of 12 books in this series, this is number 10.

Entertaining but far from being one of Clancy's best

A strong Clancy book pitting John Clark and an international team of counterterrorism soldiers against a group seeking to wipe out almost every human being on earth. The worst case scenario brought to life, and it works, even with Clancy's fondness for going on and on about technical matters.

"Nobody can be that good," a cornered eco-terrorist surmises. But, yes, the Rainbow team IS that good. Never a Clancy fan until I read "Without Remorse," "Rainbow Six" again features ex-Navy SEAL John Clark, now head of the most elite antiterrorist task force ever assembled. A fast-paced, fantastic read that doesn't get bogged down in details, just never-ending action.
