    Review text
    This is one of Clancy's strongest yarns, with a clammy compulsiveness that grips from page one. Despite being a 1984 Cold War thriller, it remains as timely and pertinent as ever, with the renegade Soviet nuclear sub captain being quite as sympathetically handled (if not more so) than his CIA analyst pursuer. The latter is wonderfully characterized as being slightly out of his depth, but gradually acquiring the requisite skills for his crucial assignment - this adds further layers to the considerable tension.
