The Teeth of the Tiger (2003, Book) – 7/10 review

Writer: Tom Clancy

Teeth of the Tiger, The (2003)


A little less in the way of how-to-build-your-own submarine / nuclear bomb / capitalist economy (delete as appropriate) and more in the way of preparation for and execution of field work makes this entertaining skilful book simpler than some of Clancy’s other country-juggling Jack Ryan thrillers. The baton is passed to Jack, Jr., who closes the book by, essentially, thumbing his nose, wiggling his fingers and saying nah-nah-ne-nah-nah SPOILER to an enemy of America as he watches him die. It feels a little inappropriate given the navel-gazing done during the remainder but provides a fittingly American climax.

This book contains sexual swear words and graphic violence, unpleasant scenes and references to sexuality.
