    1. Ruthless indeed a business expansion with dirty tricks, deceit, and merciless games played by Marcus Caine. An encryption technology system that keeps the world record top security secret code.When Roger Gordian find out that his company was an object of a corporate take over. He must find a way to bring down the gang of pirates, spies, drug lords, politacal extremists and the terrorist around the world. It's a universal marketplace where greediness is not goodbut it's great.


    2. An exciting novel. Lots of action in the ending and it lets us peek into a lot of computer cyberspace intrigue. The intellectual talk using computerese was way over my head and this is over 10 years ago technology!! I enjoyed it.




    3. I think Tom Clancy is one heck of a writer. When the puts the word on the paper, I find myself quite upset to have to put the book down. This is an action suspense thriller about complicated involvements in drug smuggling, family, and political and economic power. UpLink International CEO Roger Gordian is under attack from the Quiros men, a family of renowned mexican smugglers. One anti-smuggling Sword operator of his has deeply offended the Quiros's, and they get their revenge on him, leaving h [...]


    4. International plots, violence, cut-throat business tactics and heavy bribery fill this book that follows the employees of two competing companies.This book was terribly written, had a terrible plot and was just generally not worth reading. It did not seem like a book Tom Clancy would have put his name on. The worst part was that the plot was not explained in the beginning; the reader was supposed to piece it together as they went along, but then it was never adequately explained until the end. I [...]


    5. Este es el libro que me hizo decir "hey, no todos los libros de Tom Clancy son El octubre Rojo". Mi amor incondicional por la obra de Clancy se convirtió en aprecio condicional. A años de haberlo leído, sólo recuerdo algo de un computador, un sr. de terno que hablaba, unos terroristas hacker genéricos plantilla número 6 y miles de bostezos. Ni siquiera recuerdo si la fuerza de voluntad me permitió terminarlo, y la verdad no importa. Lo único que me gusta de este libro es la tapa con el m [...]


    6. MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS.What I learned from this book -- I don't like when Clancy franchises out his writing. Or maybe he's getting stale. Or maybe my tastes have changed.Not much memorable at this point -- shortly after reading it, I forgot most of the plot.Interesting that a key character would die fairly early on - Max Blackburn.Lots of formulaic characters and plot developments. Stupid dialogue lines like, "Stop, you bitch!"Plot centers on a technology company, owned by Roger Gordian, that U.S. [...]


    7. The book jacket indicates encryption technology and lead me to believe that this would be a technical thriller of networks and data collection.Not so. This is just a regular spy novel with tradecraft operations, body counts, shootouts, Indonesian gangs, and some thrill in timing of a large forces operations raid. Naturally an advanced US sub is used as a backdrop very remotely tied to the story as is the President. Since that wasn't what I was looking for this was a huge letdown, and I could eas [...]


    8. I've read Tom Clancy books since I was a kid. All heavy ofcourse. Ruthless is not my favorite of his books but it's still pretty good. Story is a little dragging but maybe with the right pacing it can be quite the thriller. Typical corporate espionage that attempts to take down a high-tech company with a very clever plot.


    9. Not a horrible novel, again I feel like my opinion of the book is buoyed by the fact that I got it from a library for free so I am more inclined to not be upset from the quality I would expect from a purchased novel. My favorite aspect of the novel was the setting in Singapore, which I could relate to through my time there while on deployment.


    10. More of Tom Clancy's Power Play yarns. Rival corporations battle for control, one of them is being backed by an Asian group with help of Asian gangs which means murders attacks on the rivals buildings and the possible attack on a US submarine, the local for a meeting of the President and Asian leaders.


    11. Very confusing to follow. The Story had no continuous plot. It was jumping from country to country and subplot to subplot across each chapter. I like to relax when reading a novel not take notes to keep track of characters.


    12. I have read several Tom Clancy books, but this was my least favorite of the bunch. A special Lady gave me this book for Christmas 1998. For some strange reason, it took me over ten years to read it. The inside cover is inscribled to me, so I will never part with it.


    13. #2 in the Tom Clancy's Power Plays series.Power Plays thriller - Roger Gordian tries to protect his industrial empire from hostile takeover, assault on his facilities, murder of his employees and sabotage of his plane; oh, there's also a kidnap plot against the President.






    14. A slow, draggy story, much duller than most TC books. Corporate espionage and an apparent takeover attempt of a high-tech company that is not fully explained until the end. Far from Clancy's best.



    15. Meh. Not poorly written, but I'm so not into political thrillers. Four chapters was enough to make me move on.


    16. Good engaging writing. Weak plot. Nice when it cones to the details but the bigger picture is poorly portrayed.








    17. Unfortunately I had to try way too hard to stay interested in this, and it's not even a long book. It didn't grab me. Got it for free, and didn't realize it wasn't actually written by Clancy.
