Publisher Description

A North Korean ICBM crashes into the Sea of Japan. A veteran CIA officer is murdered in Ho Chi Minh City, and a package of forged documents goes missing. The pieces are there, but assembling the puzzle will cost Jack Ryan, Jr. and his fellow Campus agents precious time. Time they don’t have. 
The challenge facing President Jack Ryan is an old one with a terrifying new twist. The international stalemate with North Korea continues into its seventh decade.  A young, untested dictator is determined to prove his strength by breaking the deadlock. Like his father before him, he hangs his plans on the country’s nuclear ambitions. Until now, that program was impeded by a lack of resources. However, there has been a dramatic change in the nation’s economic fortune. A rich deposit of valuable minerals have been found in the Hermit Kingdom.  Coupled with their nuclear capabilities, the money from this find will make North Korea a dangerous force on the world stage.
There’s just one more step needed to complete this perfect plan…the elimination of the president of the United States.

Hey, that was pretty good.

The new guy is no Clancy, but this was much better than the last effort. It was more layered. There were more simultaneous plot lines. They still converged too early, but I was still pleased by the effort. The only thing bad about this was the Chinese were portrayed in a positive light and the Dims weren’t slammed or didn’t attempt to cripple US efforts even once. These are our real enemies and I prefer when they are portrayed more accurately.

Clancys legacy lives on

Mark Greaney continues to do a great job filling Tom Clancy's size a million shoes. There's not really much drop off from the other books. Obviously the plots are a little unbelievable and fantastic but that's what makes it a suspenseful and compelling listen. It paints a grim and graphic picture of what life in North Korea is like for those in power. Succeed or die. Definitely recommend it.
