Publisher's Summary

In the Soviet hills of Dushanbe near the Afghanistan border, an otherworldly array of pillars and domes rises into the night. Between the USA and the Soviet Union, no contest is more urgent than the race to build the first missile defense system, and no one knows that more than the two men charged with assessing the Soviet's capabilities: Colonel Mikhail Filitov of the Soviet Union, an old-line warrior distrusted by the army's new inner circle of technocrats, and CIA analyst Jack Ryan, hero of the Red October affair. Each must use all his craft to arrive at the truth, but Filitov gets there first? And that's when all hell breaks loose. Because Filitov, code-named Cardinal, is America's highest agent in the Kremlin, and he is about to be betrayed to the KGB. His rescue could spell the difference between peace and war, and it is up to Jack Ryan to accomplish it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Cardinal - we have heard much background to his life.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Michael Prichard?

not specially.

I am on Chapter 6 and have already forgotten who some of the people are.
I find it confusing when the narrative switches between character groups - a longer pause would be useful.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

occasionally laugh and occasionally cry

Any additional comments?

I don't think I will want to read or hear all 10 books in this series.
