Very well written and performed. The story is very timely as well as interesting and terrifying. I really enjoy the detail and the authors attention to it.
Yes, a great story with all my favorite "Jack Ryan" characters
The good guys win
No favorite, liked them all
Credible and Scary

personality to chavez.
he needs do do more books.
i would check them out.
clark faking the heart attack?
All three books are good. i relisten to them while walking all the time
A truly interestering techo-thriller follow up to Clancy"s last book. It really gets you into the plot and does a masterful job of weaving an outstanding plot into what could quickly become real life. I have been a Tom Clancy fan since the Hunt For Red October and this one did not let me down. I can't wait for the next one. Gonna miss Melanie- Hope she comes back. The Chi-coms get what is coming to them. lou Diamond Phillips is excellent .
Clancy has continued to improve with age and this is another example. Whereas many of his earlier books set the stage and background in exhausting detail for 150-200 pages before any action started, this book is an example of the change made beginning with Rainbow Six where some of the action starts right up front. Great book and gets harder and harder to put down as the story progresses. This is continuing along those lines with our familiar story and I am eagerly looking forward to the next addition.

Threat Vector (TV) was a typical Tom Clancy genre novel so I felt secure that I was about to have a good read. The concept was very timely and cutting edge, with a realistic scenario albeit a little far-fetched that technology has really made it that far. The PRC communist government were portrayed in a bad light, but in this novel they were the enemies. After I read this novel i heard all kinds of concepts from it being used in US Congress even so far as Obama's State of the Union Address. Certainly, a cyberthreat to take down GPS satellites and parts of the internet would have a major impact on the USA economy, and probably also, the military.
Geeks watch out, Uncle Sam still packs a punch.
Allowing that it is a typical Clancy novel, it is imperfect but quite a fun read. Escapist. I went back and updated all my antivirus programs.
Fast Action and intrigue from Jack Ryan . True to life story and execution of the plot add to the readability.
Jack is everyman who falls into difficult situations and uses everything at his disposal to rectify matters.
Makes one wonder if the Super Bowl Lights Out episode was more than a simple power outage.

A reality today
I would compare this to any book on cyber security
It is gripping but a bit too long to listen at one go
Felt it was bit too lengthy
Good story, well thought out and seems like a very possible computer espionage threat.
The one draw back was Lou Diamond Phillips breathing technique while read the narrative. One minute into this book I knew it was going to be a long haul listening to him suck wind everytime he started a new sentence. The only thing that made it bearable was his character voices which were well done. Also i dealt with the breathing issue by raising the narration speed to 1-1/2.
