Tom Clancy fans should welcome Greaney's fast-paced fourth solo Jack Ryan novel (after 2015's Commander in Chief), in which once again a small group of heroes tackles a daunting national security threat. Ryan is now president, and his son, Jack Ryan Jr., works for a covert group known as the Campus. Both are tested when an information leak leads to carefully planned hits on members of the military and the intelligence community, apparently carried out by ISIS. The proliferation and scope of the attacks somehow don't result in widespread panic. President Ryan is able to resist pressure to respond militarily, which he believes would play into the terrorists' hands. Meanwhile, Jack Jr., an analyst as well as a skilled field agent, races against time to forestall further loss of life by tracing the leak. Those who don't mind major improbabilities (America's director of national intelligence flies to Iraq to supervise an operation without notifying the president) will be more than satisfied.
