Red Rabbit

Has anyone read Clancy's Red Rabbit yet? I know... it just came out Monday. But some of you are surely fast readers, and this book is shorter than Clancy's last few works.

I ask because I'm a little "iffy" about the premise of the novel (I'm going to read a library copy before I buy it to keep my Clancy collection complete); as you may know, this book is set in 1983, when Jack Ryan is a new consultant at CIA, and he uncovers a Soviet plot to assassinate Pope John Paul II. Since this is a historical reality (well, the assassination attempt, at least), I'm wondering how Clancy does in weaving his fiction into the true events.
