Strangely (and after the fact), I realize that I have created a fictional German Chancellor that sounds a lot like Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer. It's not supposed to be that way, but I guess if you want to read it that way, it doesn't really change the story.It’s a very justified cliche, though. If there are crazy secrets, then there’s going to be a “revealing this to the new head of government” moment. Truman didn’t know much, if anything, about the atomic bomb until after FDR died.
The Ryanverse started it's decline after the Sum of All Fears, although I really liked Red Rabbit a lot because it feels much more like the books Clancy used to write. Also, the style I'm using here feels more Fredrick Forsyth, at least in my opinion.I like a good spy story now and then.
To be honest, I liked the first John Ryan ones. At least until it got too far into tech solving.
And here I like the format so far.
