John Milton has been off the grid for six months. He surfaces in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, and immediately finds himself drawn into a vicious battle with the narco-gangs that control the borderlands. He saves the life of an idealistic young journalist who has been targeted for execution. The only way to keep her safe is to smuggle her into Texas. Working with the only untouchable cops in the city and a bounty hunter whose motives are unclear, Milton must keep her safe until the crossing can be made.

On a crowded tourist beach in Portugal, US operatives use a high-tech drone to watch a French arms dealer flirt with a beautiful woman. It's only when she leaves that they realise she has shot him dead. In Iran, protests are growing against the oppressive regime, whipped up by a charismatic student. Most external observers are excited, but on the ground a spy of questionable loyalty senses something is badly amiss.

This is the second of Marc’s books in the Jack Ryan franchise and much better than the first. It follows the Tom Clancy writing style of starting many story lines and bringing them together

It does make you laugh at times and also keeps you in suspense most of the time. The end like his first book needs working on but I would recommend this book and I think by the summer when his third boos is released he will be there. Scott Brick is amazing as normal I think of him as mr Jack Ryan SNR and JNR

As the world shakes from seemingly disparate outbursts of terrorism, Jack Ryan prepares for a crucial negotiation with President Zhou's increasingly hostile China. But when a routine traffic stop on an isolated road in rural Texas leads to the discovery of a stolen USB stick, it becomes clear there is a dark connection between the attacks. With tensions rising, a US spy ship in the South China Sea gets caught up in a violent storm - a storm which threatens to push it into the path of the Chinese navy, with potentially disastrous consequences.

So Scott Brick always delivers and this is no exception. As with the great Tom Clancy he manages to run with several story lines and bring them together to one exciting ending.

Another great story by Tom Clancy since he passed away I was concerned that the ghost writers would not continue with his great work.

The books now are all about Jack Ryan JNR and the campus and I think they are just as good as the original books about Jack Ryan SNR. Scott Brick takes some time to get used to but when you do his story telling is ace. I am moving onto the next book in the series which I have seen has had some negative comments so I will let you know how I find it. But this is a good listen

They have never seen a murder like it. A talented tattoo artist is using poison instead of ink. His victim is a young woman. And on her skin he's left a message: 'the second'. Drafted in to investigate, NYPD detective Lincoln Rhyme and his associate Amelia Sachs find the scene has been scrubbed of evidence. All except for one trace - a scrap of paper that connects this case with one they will never forget.
