A stunning thriller in the internationally bestselling series that inspired the smash-hit Amazon Prime TV Show JACK RYAN
Jack Ryan Jr is in an assassin's sights . . .
Sent to the Balkans on an analytical mission, Jack Ryan Jr visits Sarajevo to meet Aida, the girl his mother saved in the war. He finds a selfless, attractive woman helping refugees in a restless country where a new war is brewing.
Coming to her aid, Jack is soon tangling with the Serbian mafia while dodging assassins from the mysterious Iron Syndicate. Alone and defying recall orders, he believes this is more than just local trouble.
Has someone lit the fuse on the next world war?
Is Jack endangering Aida trying to find out?
And what can he alone do to stop it?
Praise for Tom Clancy:
'He constantly taps the current world situation for its imminent dangers and spins them into an engrossing tale' New York Times
'Heart-stopping action . . . entertaining and eminently topical' Washington Post
'Exhilarating. No other novelist is giving so full a picture of modern conflict' Sunday Times
'A brilliantly constructed thriller that packs a punch' Daily Mail
'A virtuoso display of page-turning talent' Sunday Express
Sadly this was the worst book in the Jack Ryan series. It appears to have been rushed.
Hoped for more
I, like many others I’m sure, have flowed these characters for a number of years and several of the jack jr series have been outstanding. Unfortunately, the last few years have seen a stark decline and I am now left feeling that the only motivation for the publishers and authors that have taken this series forward is the money they can make. The book is superficial from start to finish and lacks any of the quality writing, suspense or depth of the earlier books. As much as it pains me to say this, if this is going to be the standard of output that we can expect. It’s time to end this series and let us enjoy the memories of the quality that they were. The authors and publishers should be ashamed of themselves. I have continued to buy and read these books over the last couple of years out of hope that at some point soon they would take a turn in the right direction...but no more.
