Publisher's Summary

A major motion picture starring Ben Affleck, Morgan Freeman, James Cromwell, Alan Bates and Michael Byrne!
Peace may finally be at hand in the Middle East - as Deputy Director of the CIA Jack Ryan lays the groundwork for a peace plan that could end centuries of conflict. But ruthless terrorists have a final, desperate card to play: They have their hands on a nuclear weapon and have placed it on American soil in the midst of an escalation in tension with the Soviet Union. The terrorists hope to rekindle cold war animosity and prevent reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians. With one terrible act, distrust mounts, forces collide, and the floundering U.S. president seems unable to cope with the crisis. With the world on the verge of nuclear disaster, Ryan must frantically seek a solution - before the chiefs of state lose control of themselves and the world.

Fantastic and much better than it initially sounds

Initially you might think the story is being read by a synthesised or computerised voice. However John MacDonald's tone settles you onto the story and grips you. John's accent for both Russian and German parts is impressive and captivating. I will most definitely be buying another audio book read by John.

Great story line

I read the original book when it first was published and am now working my way through the series as audiobooks to refresh what happened to who and where.
This book was yet another great story and it's interesting to read the plots now that technology has moved forward some what.
However it was a bit long winded in places and I struggled slightly with the scene changeover from one part of the story to the next as the narrator didn't pause long enough and sometimes it was quite confusing however I did enjoy it overall and would recommend it to others
