His code name is Mr Clark. And his work for the CIA is brilliant, cold-blooded, and efficient...but who is he really? In a harrowing tour de force, Tom Clancy shows how an ordinary man named John Kelly crossed the lines of justice and morality - to become the CIA legend, Mr Clark.
This is an unforgettable journey into the heart of darkness. Without mercy. Without guilt. Without remorse.

The dean of techno-thrillers demonstrates once again his mastery of the genre.' (Publishers Weekly)
'Highly entertaining' (The Wall Street Journal)
For sheer narrative punch and emotional impact, Without Remorse is Clancy's best.' - Dallas Morning News
I loved this book after I got used to the narrators voice which I found at the beginning very lacking in depth however it improves as the story gets going and the narrator gets into the characters more. Overall a 9/10!
The story is very engaging with the trademark attention to detail. The narration could have been better though. The reader has made minimal use of modulation which makes it difficult to understand when different characters are speaking at the same time.
"My First Tom Clancy Book"
Without Remorse was the first Tom Clancy book I've ready. It was very refreshing to read a new style and type of story line.
The audio quality was easily the worst I've heard though. Very unclear and little or no expression from the narrator.
The voice was unclear and rather expressionless when compared to all the other Audible books I've listened to.
"John Clark before CIA"
The creation of CIA agent John Kelly AKA John Clark and the drug dealers and sex slavers getting what they deserve.
Yes I have but I will not rate his performance as one of the best as he is just to monotonous.
Yes as you just want to know how John Kelly will make the Dealers and slavers pay.
"Listen to sample before deciding to purchased"
First audible purchase ever returned ,the reason being poor sound quality and dull narration. I do realise that like or dislike of a narrators style can be highly subjective though so I would urge all would be purchasers to listen to a sample before deciding to buy but as for for me the dull monotone style in which this title was read coupled with muffled sound quality made, what should have been a fast paced thriller, into an incredibly dull experience .
"Superb story from a master author"
Took a while to get going, but the action and suspense is excellent.
In the beginning I found the reader a bit monotonous and lacking the acting ability of say Robert Glenister or Colin Mace.
However he seems to relax into the story too, or my own empathy with the characters provides a subconscious infill to round off the tale.
But a brilliant story nonetheless with a fitting finale. I'm intending to read all the Jack Ryan novels in order so watch this space.
"Sound quality an issue"
Great story, well narrated but the sound quality is very poor sounds like it was recorded on tape.
"A classic backstory to John Clarke"
Clancy is always detailed , has all the grace notes which make the story believable and a great listen.
I'm not going to spoil the the book for those who don't know it simple to say it's an excellent read and a great listen .
And it fills in the biographical gaps for John Clarke continued interventions in the Jack Ryan novels .
"Exciting and compelling fiction."
Better than the first time I read it, fast paced, keeps your attention right to the end.
"Good story... Narrator not so"
Gripping read but struggled with the narrators accent and tone. Was difficult at times to determine whom was speaking within the story due to this.
"Couldn't get past the terrible sound quality"
Absolutely awful sound quality, made even worse by the monotone voice of the narrator.
The story may have been good, but it was enough to make you fall asleep at the wheel with what can only be described as dr Steven hawking computer reading it.
Really sorry to say that this was one of those books where it would have been great but let down by the narrator. Talk about monotone, drove me to distraction and called it a day after about 4 hours. So any books narrated by Mr Pritchard will be avoided
Brilliant all the way through l could not put it down ..what was especially. Ice is that it ended happily thank you.
"A GREAT book"
Brilliant book. John Kelly becoming the person we know from the Jack Ryan series. Not to over the top. A real man not a movie hero.
