Na recém-unificada Alemanha, o horror do nazismo renasce. Apesar da vitória democrática representada pela derrubada do Muro de Berlim, durante um período conhecido como os Dias do Caos, grupos neonazistas reúnem-se para disseminar a violência. Mas este ano, Paul Hood e sua equipe estão na Alemanha para comprar tecnologia para o novo Regional Op-Center, e acabam envolvendo-se com a crise. Eles descobrem uma força aterrorizante por trás do caos-um grupo que usa tecnologia de ponta para promover o ódio e influenciar os eventos mundiais. Mas a Alemanha não é o único alvo. Planos para desestabilizar toda a europa e provocar tumultos nos Estados Unidos estão em andamento, e só a Op-Center, a mais secreta organização de inteligência americana, pode salvar o mundo do caos.

The demons of hate are reemerging in the newly united Germany and finding root in various countries around the world linked through the shadowy recesses of the Internet and fueled by a businessman looking both for profit and triumph of bigotry, yet Op-Center must find a way to prevent chaos from exploding around the world. Games of State is the third installment of Op-Center that bears the name of its creator Tom Clancy, yet is written by Jeff Rovin. From Germany to the streets of the U.S. to southern France, the action and thrill are palpable as the race to prevent the rise of a new wave of hate.

Gerard Dominique, a French billionaire financier and computer game mogul, is uniting hate groups throughout Europe and the United States to destabilize numerous countries and allow France to once again lead Europe. Part of his plan is to use hate filled video games downloaded onto the Internet and well time hate crimes in various locations to bring about political and societal chaos. Yet the unplanned actions of other hate leaders resulting in a kidnapped young American woman needing to be rescued, the hate-filled enticement towards the son of Op-Center’s Striker team leader over the Internet, the unexpected meeting of Op-Center head Paul Hood with his former fiancée now a Dominique employee, and Dominique’s own hubris results in his plans failing to materialize.

Released in 1996, Games of State brought together many political and cultural threads to create the backdrop of very riveting political thriller with action-packed sequences as well. However well the set up and the ideas were, the use of formulaic tropes that are standard in one-hour TV dramas and paperbacks undermined the potential of a book. What was most disheartening was the ease in which I was able to see which newly introduced characters would result in instantly being important in a 100 or 200 pages just when they were needed, these and other plot twists decreases the enjoyment of the book. Though one can argue that my complaints are to be expected in this type of book, I would argue that one doesn’t mind if the tropes are written well.

Games of State had an intriguing plot idea, but was undermined by poor writing decisions that turned what could have been a good page-turner into an okay read. Though the book’s execution was poor, it was a better read than the previous Op-Center installment, Mirror Image, even with my rating being the same for the both of them. ( )

This book focuses on a terrorist attack in South Korea and its aftermath, especially concerning the US's involvement. There's a lot of politics involved, and it struck me that a lot of what's said about the President in this book could be said about our current President. Interesting, since this book was written in 1995 or so. Nothing outstanding about this, but it's a decent entry in the espionage/intrigue genre. ( )
