The latest Tom Clancy Jack Ryan adventure thriller written by Mark Greaney, Clancy's last and most successful collaborator.
Abandoned by other international leaders, Jack Ryan alone counters the threat posed by Russian president Valeri Volodin. This isn't the first time that the dictator has threatened world peace, but this time he's playing a very nuanced game, moving chess pieces around the board while isolating Ryan from the rest of the international community.
Fortunately, Jack Ryan, Jr. and the rest of his Campus team find themselves in the middle of action with a vital clue to the Russian's intentions.

I read reviews before I bought this, some of which were critical of the story being slow. I've been an avid Tom Clancy fan since way back and I have to say I find Mark Greaney's style just as engaging. I didn't think it was slow. Sure, there's detail, but I like that. The story switches to different sub plots quite often, but not so much it gets irritating at all. There's plenty of action in my opinion and the build towards the climax is very well done, really good tension.
All of the Campus operators are favourites. I like the way that they're portrayed as human and not superhuman. They make mistakes, but overall are a great team.
I've listened to Scott Brick narrate other stories and when reading Clive Cussler I don't take to the accent that he uses. I have to say that in this story though, he is really good. I like his delivery and pace and think he's a great choice
All in all a great book. Quite lengthy, but I was still sorry when it was over!
I personally love these books and love following the team, most books i get are only 8-10 hours and this being twice that was great and kept me following through to the end a definite 5 star review from me. Waiting for the next one! Keep it up Mark
the story is good just performance let's it down. over all still a good Jack Ryan Jr story.
Good book, great detail. I love Scott brick narrating and will always give one of his books a go, regardless of the author. But this book scored on both counts!
This was a great read, well listen, as I enjoy the Jack Ryan series. The characters are well written and have very clear roles
