Whether hunting warlords in Japan, druglords in Colombia, or nuclear terrorists in the United States, John Clark is efficient and deadly. But even he has ghosts in his past, demons that must be exorcised. And nothing is more demonic than the peril he must face as the commander of a covert multi-national anti-terrorism squad known as Rainbow.
Almost as soon as the group is formed, three terrorist attacks occur that seem unrelated at first, but may be the beginning of a new brand of terrorism like nothing the world has ever encountered before. Their success could literally mean the end of life on this Earth as we know it.
Rainbow Six is Tom Clancy's most shocking story ever - and closer to reality than any government would care to admit.
"Clancy is in his element.... When the door blows open and the shooting starts, nobody does it better." (Dallas Morning News)
"Clancy has penned a thrilling novel, full of paranoia, intrigue, terror, and tension that you can cut with a knife. His millions of fans, as well as newcomers to the genre, will eat this one up, and deservedly so! Highly recommended." (Barnes & Noble)
"Rainbow's engagements, which occupy the bulk of the novel, are immensely suspenseful, breathtaking combos of expertly detailed combat and primal emotion." (Publisher's Weekly)

Good story, dry narration
I have never read, or listended to a Tom Clancy book previously but thought I would pick this up due to a flash sale. I was impressed with the story and it kept me engaged throughout.
As a Brit, I found the US narration quite hard work. Perhaps this is more normal in the states, but I found there to be very little variation in tone, and no attempt to differentiate characters through their voices. If you want a straight read-through and don't mind the accent - go for it. If you want voice acting and bringing a story to life - perhaps look elsewhere.
There was also little real attempt to make brits sound differenet to germans, americans, etc (minor props for the stereotypical french accent though!). Everyone got the stock American accent. In a book with such as large cast of characters, this made it difficult at times to keep tabs on who everyone was.
I believe there are several hundred already.
