Overview

Jack Ryan, Jr.’s race to stop an international criminal conspiracy is intertwined with the fate of an old friend in this blistering entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

The CIA's deepest secrets are being given away for a larger agenda that will undermine the entire Western intelligence community. Director of National Intelligence Mary Pat Foley wants it stopped but doesn't know who, how or why.

Jack Ryan, Jr., is dispatched to Poland on a different mission. The clues are thin, and the sketchy trail dead ends in a harrowing fight from which he barely escapes with his life.

If that's not bad enough, Jack gets more tragic news. An old friend, who's dying from cancer, has one final request for Jack. It seems simple enough, but before it's done, Jack will find himself alone, his life hanging by a thread. If he survives, he'll be one step closer to finding the shadowy figure behind the CIA leak and its true purpose, but in the process, he'll challenge the world's most dangerous criminal syndicate with devastating consequences.

About the Author

A little more than thirty years ago Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore's Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red October—the first of the phenomenally successful Jack Ryan novels—sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it “the perfect yarn.” From that day forward, Clancy established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. He passed away in October 2013.

Mike Maden is the author of the critically acclaimed Drone series. He holds both a master's and Ph.D. in political science from the University of California at Davis, specializing in international relations and comparative politics. He has lectured and consulted on the topics of war and the Middle East, among others. Maden has served as a political consultant and campaign manager in state and national elections, and hosted his own local weekly radio show for a year.

Tom Clancy is dead. Tom Clancy died in 2013. Since Tom Clancy died in 2013, he has not written a book. Tom Clancy did not write this book. You can tell. In an absurd flip of the term "Ghost Writer", some hack who apparently can't get a book published under his own name does a poor imitation of Clancy plot line and Clancy dialogue. At least they have the decency not to market the book "In the Style of Tom Casey". It is not. Jack is sad. Jack feels sorry for Jack. Jack is a slow learner. Jack often gets the crap beat out of him and wants to die. Jack needs girls to keep bailing him out. About half way through, you don't care. You don't really want him to die, but you just don't care. Then you realize you could have actually bought a good book for fifteen bucks. Next time, do that instead. Don't believe the dust cover. Tom Clancy is still dead.

Certainly not the best of the Jack Ryan Series.

Really clever plot dealing with the real concerns of large data management. People will ultimately be the security issue every time. Good fast paced action continues the RYAN saga. Keep them coming.

Fantastic storyline, several scenarios but all tied in perfectly a la “Tom Clancy” style of writing. Ryan Jr. and the rest of his compatriots from The Campus manage to defuse another chilling plot.
