Library Journal Review

Tom Clancy's Op-Center : Out of the Ashes

Library Journal

In Couch's (Act of Revenge) first entry in the late Clancy's "Op-Center" series previously penned by Jeff Rovin (War of Eagles), a terrorist act in the United States kills thousands, leading to the reestablishment of the National Crisis Management Center, aka Op-Center. As a variety of geeks and black-bag operators are put to work to identify, track down, and terminate the terrorists, the action is nonstop. Scott Sowers has a strong delivery and very clear pronunciation. He reads both narrative and dialog quite well, slightly modulating his voice to differentiate among characters. Verdict The latest in this popular series will appeal to all action aficionados and should be considered by public libraries and those libraries where this genre is in demand.-Michael T.

Publishers Weekly Review

Tom Clancy's Op-Center : Out of the Ashes

Publishers Weekly

Fans of the original Op-Center series created by Tom Clancy and Steve Pieczenik that ended with Jeff Rovin's War of Eagles (2005) will welcome this solid continuation from Couch (SEAL Team One) and Galdorisi (Coronado Conspiracy). The original Op-Center, "an information clearinghouse with SWAT capabilities," fell under the budget ax and was disbanded, but after a horrific series of bombings at four NFL stadiums, U.S. president Wyatt Midkiff decides to dust off the Op-Center file and bring the group back to life. Chase Williams, a retired four-star Navy admiral, agrees to head the new center and hunt down the terrorists responsible for the devastating attack. The trail takes the men and women of the revitalized agency into the Middle East, where they find a new plot aimed at the American homeland. This thriller procedural packs plenty of pulse-raising action. The open ending promises more to come. Agent: John Silbersack, Trident Media Group. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

BookList Review

Tom Clancy's Op-Center : Out of the Ashes

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

Tom Clancy's Op-Center books (12 in all) were popular, but the series ended after the last one was published in 2005. Now, almost 10 years later, St. Martin's has resurrected Op-Center with this offering from coauthors Couch and Galdorisi. A series of terrorist attacks at NFL stadiums during games causes havoc, and the president's response does little to restore confidence. He realizes the time has come to reestablish the Op-Center, a group known for its unmatched SWAT, computer, and infiltration skills. The recruitment process takes up the beginning third of the novel and proves surprisingly compelling. Once the team is up and running, the operation to strike back at the terrorists begins. Couch and Galdorisi are veteran military-thriller authors, and they show their talents here. Op-Center fans will be pleased to have the series back and will look forward to more installments in the future.--Ayers, Jeff Copyright 2010 Booklist
