Support and Defend is the first Tom Clancy novel written exclusively by Mark Greaney following Clancy’ s death in October of last year.z
In this new book, Greaney captures present day fears by building a tale around the theft of top-secret CIA files by an underling within the department. Shades of Edward Snowdon’s exploits are ever-present as Dominic Caruso , a familiar hero to all Clancy fans, embarks on a personal mission to retrieve access codes to the data before CIA human assets throughout the world are compromised. Dominic is the primary character throughout this adventure with The Campus playing only a supporting role. The President and son are missing from this adventure.
Support and Defend is fast paced and straight forward in its plot development as compared to other Clancy books. However, Greaney puts a surprising human face upon ” Transportation Director” Adara Sherman! Not always ,” all business!”
Mark Greaney is carrying on the Tom Clancy tradition. A daunting task!
