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.
This story may not be "original" with a silly fantasy plot line, sparkling vampires, over emasculated werewolves, hormonal teenage girls, a deep message about faith or other fictitious religious imagery BUT it is classic Clancy. Writing about the ordeals Ryan, Clark, And Chavez is what he excels at and this story delivers from page one with action that feels like it is straight out of a blockbuster movie.
If you like Clancy then you will like this book.
Clancy never disappoints and he is enhancing his characters for the next book.
I had almost given up on Clancy. This is his best book since Rainbow Six. Couldn't put it down and can't wait for the next one
