Razio Yamata is one of Japan's most influential industrialists, and part of a relatively small group of authority who wield tremendous authority in the Pacific Rim's economic powerhouse.

He has devised a plan to cripple the American greatness, humble the US military, and elevate Japan to a position of dominance on the world stage.

Yamata's motivation lies in his desire to pay off a Debt of Honor to his parents and to the country he feels is responsible for their deaths -- America. All he needs is a catalyst to set his plan in motion.

When the faulty gas tank on one Tennessee family's car leads to their fiery death, an opportunistic U. S. congressman uses the occasion to rush a new trade law through the system. The law is designed to squeeze Japan economically. Instead, it provides Yamata with the leverage he needs to put his plan into action.

As Yamata's plan begins to unfold, it becomes clear to the world that someone is launching a fully-integrated operation against the United States. There's only one man to find out who the culprit is -- Jack Ryan, the new President's National Security Advisor.

Clancy really stepped up the suspense in this one!

So many action packed events that tangle the most complicated weave of economics, politics, spying, and military hardware!

I am 13 and this is my second favorite book, only behind rainbow six. It is easy to understand, and has a good plot that will make it nearly impossible to put the book down. A perfect read, I highly reccomend it.

I liked the ending most of all, great twist at the end to top up a great book

A novel that often wanders, with a difficult subject to get interested in (an economic attack, wow, that'll keep us awake). Clancy gives in to his tendency to go on and on about technology quite a lot, but the finishing chapters of the book really impress.
