Acts of War (Tom Clancy's Op-Center, Book 4) by Steve Pieczenik,Jeff Rovin,Tom Clancy

Tom Clancy and Steve Pieczenik are About to Declare War on the Competition. . . .THE OBJECTIVE: A fourth consecutive New York Times bestseller for Tom Clancy's Op-CenterTHE HARDWARE: A blockbuster thriller armed with cutting-edge technology (a.k.a. everything a Clancy fan wants)THE PREDICTION: A SLAM-DUNKIn Tom Clancy's all-new, original novel, OP-CENTER: Acts of War, Syrian terrorists have attacked a dam inside the borders of Turkey, threatening the water supply of their very homeland. It is not insanity, but the first step in a deceptively simple plan: to force all-out war in the Middle East.What they don't know is that a new Regional Op-Center is now on-line in Greece, and its team can see exactly what the rebels are trying to do. But these terrorists are more resourceful than anyone thinks.
This book is mostly set in the Middle East. It involves the Kurds long protracted struggle for a homeland. But, that struggle turns nasty when some Kurds steal a helicopter and bomb a dam which kills many innocent people living below the former dam site. The Kurds also kidnap a small part of the Striker team and use torture to get their way.
One of the premises in the book has an intelligence operative on a covert mission calling a fellow team member by his real name over an open phone line where no one else is speaking. Although the author could have written it in a way that the same or similar events ensued, the vehicle he chose, having an operatives real name broadcast like that removes credibility from that part of the plot.
This "writer" is simply awful. A Tom Clancy he is NOT. Way too much introspective nonsense and "touchy feely" psychobabble, predictable given the "author's" background - all punctuated by a feeble attempt to use up available white space on the page by over-explanation or description of military hardware and software. All in all a complete waste of money. Bah!
Tedious reading. I am a great fan of Tom Clancy and even the books written by others. However, this one was disappointing. Definitely inferior to anything else in the series.
This book was most uncharacteristic of a Clancy story. So many poor decisions as to how the opening chapters defined the story line, I felt embarrassed to let friends see me reading it. This series is the last of all those co-authored by Clancy that I have not read. Do Not Read, Wait For Looney Tunes Version To Be Aired.

Open center is an amazing interesting read given today's action in the middle east. I think you will enjoy it
Pretty fine read
Good Clancy Ghost- written book.
