Bibliophilia: Threat Vector – Tom Clancy

Threat Vector – Tom Clancy

I like these just as an evening or two of thoughtless fun, but I think at some point a cyber-drone-shark was jumped. The parts where they manage to get a badly wounded team of SEALS out of Hong Kong with police and gangsters on their tail, and then manage to stage an ambush in the middle of China and slip away, and rescue a shot down pilot from an angry mob in the middle of China and slip away, just came across as ridiculous. These are certainly not the tight as a drum books he was writing a quarter century ago. They just feel like an effort to advertise the “Tom Clancy” brand.
