Debt of Honor

Debt of Honor Tom Clancy (Putnam, $25.95) Clancy fans who complain that he owes them better than his recent offerings will accept Debt of Honor as payment in full. Clancy’s latest novel traces the financial, political, military, and personal machinations that drive America into the next major global war-with hero Jack Ryan, of course, squarely in the middle of it all. Along the way, Clancy sets the stage for what’s certain to be an even more ambitious sequel about Ryan. But first luxuriate in these 766 satisfying pages of adventure: bite-size slices of conflict that speed from a renegade attempt to avenge Japan’s WWII losses (the book opens with, ”…it would seem an odd way to start a war”), to a Wall Street collapse that will send you scurrying to bury your money in the backyard, and on to a shocker climax so plausible you’ll wonder why it hasn’t yet happened.
