Razio Yamata is one of Japan's most influential industrialists, and part of a relatively small group of authority who wield tremendous authority in the Pacific Rim's economic powerhouse.
He has devised a plan to cripple the American greatness, humble the US military, and elevate Japan to a position of dominance on the world stage.
Yamata's motivation lies in his desire to pay off a Debt of Honor to his parents and to the country he feels is responsible for their deaths—America. All he needs is a catalyst to set his plan in motion.
When the faulty gas tank on one Tennessee family's car leads to their fiery death, an opportunistic U. S. congressman uses the occasion to rush a new trade law through the system. The law is designed to squeeze Japan economically. Instead, it provides Yamata with the leverage he needs to put his plan into action.
As Yamata's plan begins to unfold, it becomes clear to the world that someone is launching a fully-integrated operation against the United States. There's only one man to find out who the culprit is—Jack Ryan, the new President's National Security Advisor.

Debt of Honor
Tom Clancy is a master storyteller. Debt of Honor, like his other books, immerses the reader into a world of political intrigue and military operations. In addition, Clancy interweaves historical perspectives within the story, adding depth and meaning. Character and plot development are magnificent. There are those who claim that Tom Clancy novels are too long and too detailed. However, if you crave quality writing, plausible story lines, and just plain want to be entertained; this is the book for you.
I have been reading Clancy for years. I truly enjoy the series of his books.
Not that I am a qualified critic, but Clancy starts his books slowly introducing so many characters that one has to constantly go back chapters to remember some one mentioned early in the book. The plot unfolds at a snails pace then as if he becomes bored with the book begins to pick up the pace until one senses he is in a drag race toward the end. Then the book abruptly ends as if one stepped off a cliff.
A novel that reads like an ADHD 5yr old tells stories.
And then! And then! AND THEN!!!
