READER á Full Force and Effect º Mark Greaney

C change in the nation’s economic fortune A rich deposit of valuable minerals have been found in the Hermit Kingdom  Coupled with their nuclear capabilities the money from this find will make North Korea a dangerous force on the world stage   There’s just one step needed to complete this perfect planthe elimination of the president of the United Stat SUBJECTIVE READER REVIEW FOLLOWSFor a couple of years now I've been wondering how Tom Clancy is still publishing from the after life It turns out that Clancy's last five books were 'written in collaboration with' Grant Blackwood Peter Telep and Mark Greaney A little snooping revealed that the collaborationists did most of the legwork all of the travel and most of the geopolitical research Now Mark Greaney's published two Tom Clancy books that he's written has another one in the hopper and Grant Blackwood's published UNDER FIRE which he wrote I suppose they're written under the Tom Clancy legacy as well as the estate taking advantage of great characters Tom put in place; Jack Ryan Jack Ryan Jr and John Clark come to mind I was curious as to the 'watering down' effect of the collaborationists but I rated the twelve novels before shared attribution 467 stars on average; the six novels released under collaboration got 467 stars on average Pretty consistent so the students have learned from the master well The only noticeable uptick was Clancy books released before 2003 and I rated those twelve novels got 483 stars on averageFULL FORCE EFFECT is a really great read but Greaney followed the Zen master's MO; the hardcover's 3 thick and 671 pages I don't think that's a complaint because I stayed up one night six hours trying to get through the plot development to see where Greaney was taking it To make rare earth minerals the key to the plot was downright uniue but somehow believable so I salute the plot even though I had to wonder if any deposit of reserves in the world was worth 12 trillion So I'm a Jack Ryan fan though not as much as Mitch Rapp Scott Harvath and John Corey and it was an almost incredible read I was straddling the fence on 45 stars but gave it 5 due to the plot's complex but interesting trio of a North Korean intelligence chief a Mexican billionaire without scruples and a retrofitted MI6 Station Chief I'll put it this way; I liked it enough to read UNDER FIRE in the near futureSPOILER PLOT SUMMARY FOLLOWSThe North Korean Rare Earth Metals Conspiracy North Korea has become the Cold War Hangover bent on launching an ICBM with enough range to hit the US West Coast The insanity of the plan is the US will retaliate dramatically with extreme impact to their South Korean allies as well as Northeastern China Long hampered by the lack of natural resources and UN economic sanctions the DPRK Dae Wonsu Choi Ji hoon has hatched a diabolical plan based on the discovery of proven reserves of rare earth metals from a mine in Chongju valued at 12 trillion The Chinese were mining and refining the ore before a dramatic split appeared and the PRC technicians and geologists abandoned the site With the future value of the much in demand though not easily attainable metals Choi sets his intelligence chief LGEN Ri Tae jin on an impossible mission;
