Newly elected, Jack Ryan has found that being President is not easy: domestic pitfalls await him at every turn; there's a revolution in Liberia; the Asian economy is going down the tubes; and now, in Moscow, someone may have tried to assassinate the chairman of the SVR - the former KGB - with a rocket-propelled grenade. Were the potential assassins political enemies, the Russian Mafia, or disaffected former KGB? Or is something far more dangerous at work here? While Ryan dispatches his most trusted eyes and ears, including black ops specialist John Clark, to find out the truth of the matter, forces in China are moving ahead with a plan of truly audacious proportions. If they succeed, the world will never look the same again.
Great book but terrible narration
The Micheal Pritchard version of this book is far superior, the narrator of this version is trying too hard and makes listening to the story difficult and unwelcoming! If you can get the Michael Pritchard version
the bear and the dragon
having bought audio books over the last few years and been quite happy with the abridged versions until now this has to be the worst one ever it is so disjointed it is not true. You can even hear the tape being switched on and off. Won't be buying any more of his at itunes.
