I have had some hit and miss type reactions to Clancy’s books. I LOVED Patriot Games, but Red Storm Rising didn’t do much for me at all. I liked the movie Hunt for Red October, but found the book too technical and engineer’y.
So I wasn’t sure what I was getting into when I started reading Without Remorse. I am happy to report that I ended up really enjoying this.
The premise is right up my alley. SEAL commando, who is despondent over losing his wife, meets cute girl. Things end up badly and SEAL goes after those responsible because the Law can’t.
Give me a highly trained vigilante with Justice on his side anytime.
The only downside was that this took place in the Vietnam era and I’d really like to read something a bit more modern, kind of like how Shooter [the movie] was updated to Afghanistan from Point of Impact in Vietnam.
So if any of you know of a good modern military thriller, feel free to leave a comment about it.
