The Teeth Of The Tiger

by Tom Clancy

Penguin Publishing Group | July 27, 2004 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

The Teeth Of The Tiger is rated 2.2857 out of 5 by 7.
A man named Mohammed sits in a café in Vienna, about to propose a deal to a Colombian. Mohammed has a strong network of agents and sympathizers throughout Europe and the Middle East, and the Colombian has an equally strong drug network throughout America. What if they were to form an alliance, to combine all their assets and connections? The potential for profits would be enormous—and the potential for destruction unimaginable.

In the Brave New World of terrorism—where anybody with a spare AK-47, a knowledge of kitchen chemistry, or simply the will to die can become a player—the old rules no longer apply. No matter what new governmental organizations come into being, the only truly effective ones are those that are quick and agile, free of oversight and restrictions...and outside the system.

Way outside the system.

In a nondescript office building in suburban Maryland, the firm Hendley Associates does a profitable business in stocks, bonds, and international currencies, but its true mission is quite different: to identify and locate terrorist threats, and then deal with them, in whatever manner necessary. Established with the knowledge of President John Patrick Ryan, "the Campus" is always on the lookout for promising new talent, its recruiters scattered throughout the armed forces and government agencies—and three men are about to cross its radar.

The first is Dominic Caruso, a rookie FBI agent, barely a year out of Quantico, whose decisive actions resolve a particularly brutal kidnap/murder case. The second is Caruso's brother, Brian, a Marine captain just back from his first combat action in Afghanistan, and already a man to watch. And the third is their cousin...a young man named Jack Ryan, Jr.

Jack was raised on intrigue. As his father moved through the ranks of the CIA and then into the White House, Jack received a life course in the world and the way it operates from agents, statesmen, analysts, Secret Service men, and black ops specialists such as John Clark and Ding Chavez. He wants to put it all to work now—but when he knocks on the front door of "the Campus," he finds that nothing has prepared him for what he is about to encounter. For it is indeed a different world out there, and in here...and it is about to become far more dangerous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is a great title for a great book The book has fallowed the Tom Clancy legacy, even though someone else wrote it with him. I found very usefull the bold fonts before a story line paragragh started to indicate a new part of the storyline. Before it made it a little time to understand from pargraph to paragraph. But know it the best. I hope that all the future books will be made like this. As for the plot, well it was absolutely ammazing! I was a little disappointed not to have seen John Clark and the rainbow team, but teams are not eternal and characters grow old. Its great to have set up the next generation of spooks/black ops operators that way. It was truely great. So don't hesitate, and enjoy!! Thank-you to Tom Clancy and friends Cheers

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Teeth of the Tiger I like to read Tom Clancy who I find very well informed and detailed. Usually unbiased. The Teeth of the Tiger is the WORST Tom Clancy read I have endured. The book reads like it was written by a third grader and is NOT typical Clancy! It just seemed like a typical US RAH RAH novel about current affairs and their hate for Islam, and how the US destroys terrorists by things just magically falling into place for the great US Agents. BLAH!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Clancy's best I dissagree with all the past reviews!, because this one had a big change of plot, it was full of suspense but I have to admit it isn't Clancy's best, I think by reading this story over 5 times that all the actions in this book were suspenful but were pretty much predictable. Mr. Clancy used to let us die to know the next events or to find the next string that will lead to the case solved but dissappointedly this story wasn't.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from dis-appointing I've enjoyed the Jack Ryan series before but this one was disappointing. The formula is very familiar and the character development was superficial. This novel feels like it was just pumped out to get a novel out to the mass. It was very disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pornographic trash. Like all of Clancy s books, this is a quick read, but I kept waiting for balance or justice that never came. A bent cop and a fallen marine ignore their oaths to wage gleeful vigilante justice on the ragheads . The first perp could have told families where his other victims are buried. Their second victim could have been turned and run against the organization etc. And of course, young Jack Ryan single handedly outsmarts 35,000 professional CIA analysts. This book simply panders to those who need still more revenge. There are no morals to be learned, and no fresh insites into either the causes or the solutions of terrorism. It is an exploitation of the lust for vengence, and therefore no more than pornographic trash.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big Fan Wronged I've always enjoyed what Mr. Clancy has written in the past through his books. But simply put his last two efforts, Red Rabbit & Teeth of the Tiger, aren't anywhere near the quality of what he has written in the past. These past two books are without the usual plot twists and very preditiable. I would wait and get this novel out when it comes out on paperback. I know I will with Mr. Clancy's next book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A world of easy fixes It's been a while since I've read a Clancy novel. I'd felt that Mr. Clancy had hit that point of Critical Mass for a writer, where they can publish anything they want because they know it's certain to sale to the fan market. It's pretty much he reason I don't read Steven King's novels but only his short stories anymore. Not that Mr. Clancy rambles on like King. His writing ticks along as it always has. I won't sumarize the story for you as you've probably all ready read the publisher's note. If there's one major flaw in this book it is that it's a setup for a series. It does an adequate job of this but bottom line, I wanted more story in my story. In other words I wanted more book. I really wanted more conflict. Because for the most part this book is; these guys go there by this method and do this thing. Things that can go wrong are mentioned but there is never anything that goes wrong to cause any conflict with the final objective of any scene. I'm certain that assasination might be an easy thing to accomplish with the right tools but it makes for a boring read. Mr. Clancy's past works are fun because all of the characters have many obstacles set in their way. This book is a good character intro but it sure isn't up to the par of his usual work.
