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 3 out of 5 by from Tigers Teeth OK but slow. Waiting for the other shoe ...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The teeth of the tiger Being a long time fan of Tom Clancy, the above book is without any doubts the worst offering ever. Disappointing style, page fillers with useless re-hash of previous books, boring 'homelies' and a very slow pace created a book, that can only be rated as a total waste of time (and money).

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!
