Publisher Description

Though his father had been reluctant to become a heroic field operative, Jack Ryan, Jr. wants nothing more…  
Privately training with special forces, he’s honing his combat skills to continue his work within the Campus, hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can—even as Jack Ryan, Sr. campaigns to become President of the United States again.
 
But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and personal have just become equally dangerous. A devout enemy of Jack, Sr. launches a privately-funded vendetta to discredit him and connect him to a mysterious killing in his longtime ally John Clark’s past. All they have to do is catch him.
 
With Clark on the run, it’s up to Jack, Jr. to stop a growing threat emerging in the Middle East, where a corrupt Pakistani general has entered into a deadly pact with a fanatical terrorist to procure four nuclear warheads they can use to blackmail any world power into submission—or face annihilation.

Still Good

While I will admit that the newer books lack some of the spark and attention to detail that made me fall in love with Tom Clancy as a child, this novel set in the geopolitical “What If” world that Clancy created still delivers a gripping narrative. Jack Jr. and his associates’ fight against threats both foreign and in Washington kept me turning page after page to find out what would happen next. Clark’s struggle with age and his past makes for an excellent sub-plot while Ding’s continued exploits kept the action flowing and the firefights interesting. 8/10 read.

Threat Vector

A very good read, typical Clancy.

Lacking any Semblance of Real Life

Clancy & Greaney made the "super heros" so super that the book lacked any semblance to reality. The heros were super strong, super knowledgable, super shots, super fast travelers, etc. Too super to be real. Also, Russian leaders would rather be blown to oblivion before they would allow any American to take over a military operation in their country. Finally, their Mexican-American character keep saying "mano" for what I assumed to be for "man". Mano in Spanish means hand. In the context it was used, it made no sense for a native Latin to use the word mano. My guess is that Greaney wrote most of this book. Not a typical Clancy book.
