At it’s heart is ex-Navy SEAL John Clark, now the newly named head of Rainbow, an international task force dedicated to combating terrorism. In a trial by fire, Clark is confronted with a violent chain of seemingly separate international incidents. But there is no way to predict the real threat: a group of terrorists like none the world has ever encountered, a band of men and women so extreme that their success could literately mean the end of life on the earth as we know it.
"Rainbow Six", as most books, has it’s ups and downs. A few parts of the book are very slow reading and you feel you are getting nowhere, while other (and bigger) chunks you finish too fast and scream for more. It’s a must-read for every Tom Clancy, action and thriller fan. It’s the largest book I have ever finished (I tried some J.R.R. Tolkien once, but never really got the hang of his style). "Rainbow Six" goes out highly recommended.
