Without Remorse is the 6th novel by Tom Clancy to feature the well known characters Jack Ryan and John Clark but is a prequel of sorts featuring a teenage Ryan and set during the Vietnam war.
Scheduled to be adapted into a major movie in 2011.

Clancy has created an archetypal American hero in John Kelly/Clark, a vigilante character seemingly transported from the "old West." In this book, we learn the origin of the legendary Mr. Clark.
Clark is my favorite Clancy character, and is high in my pantheon along with Horatio Hornblower and WEB Griffin's Goeffrey Craig.
Anyone who has suffered a wrenching loss or worn the uniform should appreciate this book. Most men would hope to have the courage to act as Kelly did.

First let me say, Tom Clancy's Without Remorse is an awesome book, and by far Tom Clancy's best.
When the story starts John Kelly (Clark) is a Vietnam war veteran living a normal life until he meets Pam and falls in love. From there the story begins to unfold (I can't tell you too much without spoiling it for you). After a chain of events turn his life upside down, he must take maters into his own hands.
This is one the best books I've ever read, and I highly recommend it to anyone… Read Full Review

Do I hear a movie coming on? I'd love to see it. This book is awesome. Mr. Kelly (Clark) is not only one serious vigilante, but also likeable enough to qualify as a "teddy bear". I think this story is for people who often daydream about doing some of the "peacekeeping" activities that are described in this book. This is the book that got me interested in reading Clancy. It's also a book that can be strangely theraputic if one has suffered a loss… Read Full Review

Without Remorse is definitely Tom Clancy's best book ever. I have read Bear and the Dragon and Rainbow Six, and I'm afraid to say that this one blows both out of the water. It has just the right mix of sex, action and politics to make for a billiant read… Read Full Review

This is probably my favorite book of all time. Tom Clancy readers, long familiar with the CIA's "Iceman" John Clark, finally get to find out where he came from, or more precisely how he was transformed from normal Vietnam Vet, John Terrence Kelly, to international covert operative John Clark. The story is gripping and the characters magnetic. "Without Remorse" moved by the telling of the story of it's characters; it is less tech-heavy than other Clancy works, more human… Read Full Review
