Description

Jack Ryan risks all in the Soviet Union as the superpowers clash over Star Wars in Tom Clancy's acclaimed fourth international No 1 bestseller - now reissued with a new cover.

The superpower arms negotiations appear to be making progress.

But a US spy satellite reveals that the Soviets are building a massive laser-defence system controlled from an other-worldly array of pillars and domes in the Soviet hills at Dushanbe near the border of war-torn Afghanistan.

The Americans need more information. The man to give it is Colonel Mikhail Filitov of the Soviet Union, codename Cardinal, America's highest-placed agent in the Kremlin.

But Filitov's cover is about to be betrayed to the KGB, and CIA adviser Jack Ryan must rescue Filitov and bring him to safety...

Very good, fast paced action right from the beggining. No lengthy boring setting up of conspiracy theories and unnessesary introductions and descriptions of characters. Just lots of action. Ok, 95% of the characters I knew from other Clancy novels, so there is familiarity already. He still is the best in this type of thriller.
