Recently started Rainbow Six by Tom Clancy, one of my guilty pleasures I guess. Sometimes Clancy can be a lot of fun to ready, and he does thrillers with high tech, military and special forces elements better than anyone.
I guess he's getting older and crankier, though, or else he just doesn't know who to make into a plausible villain since the fall of the USSR, because Rainbow Six treats environmentalists as being the most evil and inhuman bad-guys possible. The basic thrust of the book is that some environmentalists decide that human beings are just too tough on the planet, and almost every one deserves to be wiped-out. Environmentalism is treated as the most deranged, anti-business, anti-social kind of sociopathic craziness possible. I'm not exactly a Greenpeace or Sierra Club member, but this still kind of bugs me.
