E Book Feb 12th Not impressed for a Tom Clancy. too many skipping around story lines. ( )
  MustangGuy | Feb 12, 2021 |
A terrorist attack in Seoul raises tensions on Korean peninsula with war looking likely, but a new federal crisis management team is task to figure out who and why before things escalate too far. Op-Center through bearing the name of Tom Clancy, who along with Steve Pieczenik created the story, was ghostwritten by Jeff Rovin about a government agency tasked with handling both domestic and international crisis.

Renegade South Korean soldiers attack an official celebration of the founding of the country implicating the North Koreans. Op-Center director Paul Hood suddenly finds himself appointed head of Task Force by a President looking for a big foreign affairs accomplishment; however evidence and a cyberattack complicate Hood giving the President a clear go ahead to launch a war. On the peninsula, a former Ambassador to the country and his friend in the KCIA take their own individual routes to lessen the growing tensions between the two sides. But the renegade squad is racing towards their next attacks—the North Korean barracks at the DMZ and Tokyo—and the only thing that can stop them is Op-Center’s paramilitary response team, Striker with Hood’s deputy General Mike Rodger along for the action.

Set roughly around the time of book’s publication a little over 20 years ago, the plot reads almost like alternate history today but still holds up fairly well. While the primary plot is very good, the subplots connected with different characters were more of a problem. Hood is torn between crisis in Korea and with this son’s health that makes him look sympathetic while his wife appears too needy given that she knew something like this could happen, Rodgers appears to be in a mid-life crisis wanting to get back to his glory days instead of being at his post, and many of the female Op-Center personal are painted broadly with a brush in various stereotypes that back when I first read the book as a teenager didn’t pop out at me but certainly did now.

While the characterization of many of the principal characters is bland, the plot and the action are very well written making this a quick and fun read for the most part. While at the time Rovin wasn’t given his due as the book’s author, he did a good job in setting up a series that would eventually reach 12. While Op-Center is not the greatest book within the action and thriller genres but those that like those genres will find it a good read. ( )

Poor.
The first few chapters were great! It was, like, constant page turner and I really thought I had found a winner ... and then it hit a wall -- hard! About 1/4 of the way in I wanted to stop reading all together -- which would have given it a rating of "Very Poor" -- but because I really enjoyed the first few chapters I trudged along. I skipped and skimmed and rolled my eyes so many times I may have pulled an eye muscle ... but I got through.

Primer libro de la serie Op-Center. Op-Center es el corazón de los servicios de inteligencia y defensa en los Estados Unidos, y se especializa en el manejo de situaciones de crisis. Está provisto de la tecnología más avanzada y administrado por un equipo de expertos que trabajan dentro y fuera de la organización. Cuando el gobierno debe encarar un asunto demasiado peligroso o no del todo limpio, su única alternativa es recurrir a Op-Center. Paul Hood, el director del Centro, y su equipo tienen que afrontar una misión que escapa a todos sus cálculos y previsiones: una dramática pugna de poder capaz de arrojar sobre el tablero del orden mundial nuevos contendientes y nuevos objetivos, cuya combinación y resultado final nadie podría imaginar.
