Description

Tom Clancy brings Jack Ryan's son—Jack Ryan, Jr.—to the forefront in this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller.

A man named Mohammed sits in a café in Vienna, about to propose a deal to a Colombian. What if they combined his network of Middle East agents and sympathizers with the Colombian’s drug network in America? The potential for profits would be enormous—and the potential for destruction unimaginable.
 

A young man in suburban Maryland who has grown up around intrigue is about to put his skills to the test. Taught the ways of the world firsthand by agents, statesmen, analysts, Secret Servicemen, and black-op specialists, he crosses the radar of “The Campus”—a secret organization set up to identify local terrorist threats and deal with them by any means necessary.

His name: Jack Ryan, Jr.

    It is well written an it hard to put. It was especially interesting when the used the nerve agent to kill the muslins.
  • Clearly ghostwritten

    This was clearly ghostwritten by a lesser author. The book lacks all the hallmarks of a real Clancy novel. The characters are shallow--there's no effort to understand the enemy or know his mind. And the technobabble is laughable. A Dell laptop with *firewire*, are you joking? It's like a grab bag of tech filler. Normally I give my used books to a friend but I threw this one away to make sure no one accidentally read it.
  • To call this book "wretched" would be overly kind

    Seriously, one of the worst books I've ever read. Incredibly sloppy writing, poorly edited, trite, predictable... A complete insult to readers. Think I'm overstating things? Try this sentence (which begins a chapter) on for size: "The sun rose promptly at dawn." Think about the profound stupidity embodied that simple collection of six words. OF COURSE the sun rose at dawn - when else would it rise? That's what makes it dawn, Mr. Clancy: the sun rises. I'm not cherry-picking, either. The entire book exemplifies a by-the-numbers, formulaic approach to churning out pages that aren't clever, aren't accurate, aren't remotely worthwhile in any way. As Twinkies are to actual food, so this dreck is to actual writing.

    I enjoyed reading this book and meeting the next generation in the Ryan family. But it's too short. Where is the next one!

    This book is limited by it's predictable plot and wooden characters. Although they are second generation, the key players have a distinct lack of depth and imagination. The book shows what can happen when an author becomes too commercial and turns to providing , more of the same to his readers. Even the techno in this technothriller lacks any real allure. Worse yet, it ends abruptly, shamelessly pandering for the sequel. Grade D.
