Dead Or Alive

by Grant Blackwood, Tom Clancy

Penguin Publishing Group | September 21, 2012 | Mass Market Paperbound

Dead Or Alive is rated 2.6667 out of 5 by 3.
Tom Clancy returns with a #1 New York Times bestseller that will remind readers why he is the acknowledged master of international intrigue and nonstop military action.
 
It is The Campus. Secretly created under the administration of President Jack Ryan, its sole purpose is to eliminate terrorists and those who protect them. Officially, it has no connection to the American government—a necessity in a time when those in power consider themselves above such arcane ideals as loyalty, justice, and right or wrong.

Now covert intelligence expert Jack Ryan Jr. and his compatriots at The Campus—joined by black ops warriors John Clark and “Ding” Chavez—have come up against their greatest foe: a sadistic killer known as the Emir. Mastermind of countless horrific attacks, the Emir has eluded capture by every law enforcement agency in the world. But his greatest devastation is yet to be unleashed as he plans a monumental strike at the heart of America.

On the trail of the Emir, Jack Ryan Jr. will find himself following in his legendary father’s footsteps on a manhunt that will take him and his allies across the globe, into the shadowy arenas of political gamesmanship, and back onto U.S. soil in a race to prevent the possible fall of the West…

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Different but Enjoyable. When I started this book I did not know if I would enjoy it because of the way it was written with each chapter being about different characters and they did not connect to each other. But when they did start to blend and come together, I started enjoying it more and more. Had a hard time putting it down at times. It is a LONG read for sure and that may turn some readers away but I think it was worth it. I did find it a bit confusing when he was talking about where the flight was travelling when he was speaking about Moose Jaw and then into the States and back to Canada??? Kinda lost me there. I do not recall reading any other Clancy novels so can not compare. I do know that I would read other of his work. I would tell my friends about this book, definitely. .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Clancy picks a lousy co/ghost writer. Where has his integrity gone? I was very sorry (I even tossed the book away in disgust for a short while!) that Clancy has lent his name to a co-writer that doesn't do his homework. I always thought of Tom Clancy as a writer who did proper research and who was therefore credible. In this case, he makes several pathetic errors related to the aircraft that he inserts into the storyline. They are very flagrant to anyone who knows anything about radar, air traffic control, search and rescue and flight planning. I am left wondering how incredible his other work is when this section is so flagrantly wrong! It's like finding out that the Easter Bunny doesn't exist. Tom Clancy, I'm sorry but you will not sell me any more books. You should have stayed solo instead of selling your name to hacks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clancy returns with hard hitting thriller It has been seven years since Tom Clancy's last novel, and even longer since his last good novel. However, "Dead or Alive" is reminiscent of Clancy's earlier books like "Patriot Games" and "The Hunt for Red October". In this latest offering, Clancy slowly exposes the many threads that eventually come together to reveal the terrorist plot and the American plan of action to stop it. While there were some unnecessary passages, and a less than enthusiastic return to politics by Jack Ryan Sr, "Dead or Alive" crackled along at a great rate. Clancy even ramped up the action scenes, and, without trying to ruin it for everyone, killed off a character from previous novels. Here's hoping, on behalf of all the long suffering Tom Clancy fans, that the master is back to stay, and that we won't have to wait another seven years for the next book.

About the Author

Thirty years ago Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore’s Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it “the perfect yarn.” Since then Clancy has established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense.

Grant Blackwood, a U.S. Navy veteran, spent three years aboard a guided missile frigate as operations specialist and pilot rescue swimmer. He is coauthor, with Clive Cussler, of the New York Times bestsellers Spartan Gold and Lost Empire. He is also the author of the Briggs Tanner series—The End of Enemies, The Wall of Night, and An Echo of War. He lives in Colorado.
