A GRIPPING THRILLER IN TOM CLANCY'S INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING JACK RYAN SERIES - INSPIRATION FOR THE BLOCKBUSTER AMAZON PRIME TELEVISION SERIES.
As the Kremlin orders troops to mass on the Ukrainian border, a Russian plane carrying nukes disappears mid-flight.
For US President Jack Ryan this means attempting to defuse a war on Europe's flanks before it engulfs the whole continent.
For his son, Campus secret agent Jack Jr, finding the nukes means covertly heading to the heart of the Middle East where militants seek to bring America to its knees.
As East-West tensions escalate, tying the hands of President and son alike, both race against time to stop a weapon ending the world as we know it . . .
Praise for Tom Clancy:
'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
'A virtuoso display of page-turning talent' Sunday Express
Cameron's so-so second contribution to Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan franchise (after 2017's Tom Clancy: Power and Empire) centers on an insurgency movement in Iran. Erik Dovzhenko, a reluctant Russian spy stationed in Tehran, chooses to defect when his dissident lover, Maryam Farhad, is killed by Revolutionary Guards. Erik escapes to Afghanistan to warn Maryam's friend Ysabel Kashani, who in turn contacts her former lover, Jack Ryan Jr., the U.S. president's son. Jack Jr. travels to Iran, where he meets Erik and Ysabel and seeks to intercept two hijacked Russian nuclear missiles, which he and his compatriots from the Campus, a covert antiterrorism organization, have been tracking. The main action builds to an extremely clever twist. Meanwhile, in random interludes, President Ryan deals with an attack on the American embassy in Cameroon and the attempted assassination of a political rival. Maybe, once Ryan has finished his term in office and can do more than sit resolute behind a desk, he will again excite readers.
