CIA analyst Jack Ryan, historian and former Marine, is vacationing in London with his wife and young daughter. Suddenly, right before his eyes, a terrorist group launches its deadly attack. Instinctively, Jack dives forward to intervene. By his impulsive act, he gains both the gratitude of a nation and the enmity of its most dangerous men who will not sit on their hate.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Patriot Games?

The fact that Dartmoor Prison has apparently moved to Cornwall!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narration was awful. For a book set mainly in England and Ireland the narrator did very little to pronounce names or places correctly.
