Rainbow Six by Tom Clancy (1998) [Part 1] πŸ“šπŸŽ§

Published on 01 Oct 2022 / In Audiobooks

⁣⁣Rainbow Six is a techno-thriller novel, written by Tom
Clancy and released on August 3, 1998. It is the second book to
primarily focus on John Clark, one of the recurring characters in the
Ryanverse, after Without Remorse (1993); it also features his son-in-law
Domingo "Ding" Chavez. Rainbow Six follows Rainbow, a secret
international counterterrorist organization headed by Clark (whose
codename is "Rainbow Six"), and the complex apocalyptic conspiracy they
unravel after handling multiple seemingly random terrorist attacks. The
book debuted at number one on the New York Times bestseller list, and
has since been adapted into a series of video games.
