Tom Clancy Line of Sight
By Mike Maden
Jack Ryan Jr. finds that the scars of war can last a lifetime in the latest entry in Tom Clancy's #1 New York Times bestselling series.
Twenty-six years ago, Dr. Cathy Ryan restored the eyesight of a young Bosnian girl who had been injured during an attack in the Bosnian War. Today, her son, Jack Ryan Jr. has agreed to track down the young woman and deliver a letter from his mother. What he finds shocks them both.
The helpless child has grown into a remarkable woman. Aida Curic is a self-possessed beauty with a big heart and an even bigger secret who runs a controversial refugee agency near Sarajevo. Jack finds himself deeply drawn to both her and her country, but soon finds himself in the crosshairs of the seething ethnic tensions and ancient blood feuds of the Balkans, the region of Europe where empires go to die. If Jack can't navigate the world of secret service agencies, special operators and local mafias to save Aida, Sarajevo will prove the be the fuse that lights the next world war.
Line of sight5By WccguyGreat book. Well done in the Clancy tradition
Not so great...3By AAPL FreakAs a Clancy fan, this was a major disappointment. Extremely slow. Way too much focus on the history and environment; hey Maden, we get it, you traveled to Bosnia and liked it. But seriously it was overkill and lost me. Also, whoever edited this book should be questioned. How many times did he write “iWatch”?! Seriously?! It’s 2018 and the “Apple Watch” has been out for years! One time I can understand, but throughout the book was embarrassing. Overall, I have read Maden’s other Ryan book and was also disappointed. I wish they would find another author. So far Mark Greaney is by far the best shadow author.
TD Global4By TdglobalconsultingOverall the story line took to long to develop. If I wanted s history book, I would go back to graduate school!
Not Clancy1By IcemanTXNot even close.

Tom Clancy Line of Sight2By LJF TNDisappointing
Another riveting Tom Clancy novel5By HaloDocLike all Tom Clancy novels, you will not be disappointed by this novel. The novel grips you as soon as you pick it up. You learn very quickly that you have no idea who are the good guys and who are the bad guys. If you decide to read this book you had better have some good alibis as to why you did not show up for work. Once you begin this novel, you will be unable to put it down until you complete it!
Too much exposition3By FritzBoMoe... not enough action. I almost didn’t finish this one because I was bored.
Slow, Dry and Boring2By Jim Cerone The Perfect HostApologies to the author, but if I wanted a history lesson, I’d read non-fiction. Slow, dry and boring.
Wasted time1By BejjimSo a novel about Jack Ryan chasing after a woman, being an idiot and then saving the day. This was a pathetic extension of a great storyline.
