This is a great Clancy book. I have loved his stories for many years and this is one of the best.
He presents excellently researched computer hacking data that is impacting our world today.
The whole Chinese connection is also very accurate. So much of what Clancy reveals in the story are things that are actually happening in that country. I really wish this was all just fantasy, but I fear it is not.
Mark Greaney is another one of my favorite authors and is influence is appreciated. Pick up one of his books and you will not be disappointed.
I basically listened with all my available time, excluding my family, and getting those all too common comments like " What are you listening too that is so important you don't have time to talk..." Oh well, I must need counseling. I love a book that puts me in this zone, and this one did.
Thanks Tom and Mark.
Lately, I have to read Clancy books twice to be able to follow it. This book had fewer characters to try to follow.
While this book didn't have the magic of his earlier books, it was still an interesting book.
Just when I wondered for Clancy would get back to the top writing with co-authors then
WHAM. "Threat Vector" thunders from above, beyond and through cyber space and the realities of the imperfect technological age that is our world.
He's changed as fast as new technologies and makes you hold on tight giving you the option, either become a computer nerd or a secret operative. This real and plausible story shows another vulnerability our Government faces. To protect and defend has added a new meaning. I wasted a lot of gas going out of my way rather than going straight home at times. It's a winner!
Espionage; check. Intrigue; check. Fighter planes, cybercrime, hard-hitting action; check, check, check.
There's never been a better took in this series! I loved it! I can't wait until the next one!
Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney make a great combination and Lou Diamond Phillips provided a great read. I have always enjoyed both authors but in combination with continuation of Clancy's story line, this is a hit. I was initially concerned when I saw that LD Phillips was the reader but he did a great job and I will be looking for more that he has done.
I spend about 55 hours a week driving and really enjoy having a good book to pass the miles.
I have really enjoyed Tom Clancy's last three collaborations. The new generation of characters blends well with the old timers. Mark Greaney is a good stand alone action thriller author as well. If you have enjoyed Tom Clancy's cold war era thrillers these books won't disappoint. When you've read these new stories try out Greaney's Gray Man series they are also hard to put down. I was a little put off by Phillips narration as it is a little monotone but he is by no means the worst I've heard and it doesn't hurt the story at all.
Wonderful book. I could not stop listening. Every word spoken was captivating. My favorite character was Jack Jr.
Very dull and to much detail about charcters. Takes way to long to get into the "meat" of the book.
I can't say, the story may be good, but see the headline
Not sure who I would have cast, but if a listener has the problem I have.... listening to a narrator inhale at the start of every sentence... and it puts them off.... I can't recommend listening to the book. Read it in print
No, couldn't get past the sound of LDP inhaling
As much as I respect and enjoy LDP as an actor, I will never "buy" another book with him as the narrator.
If it had actually been written by Clancy.
Greaney is not Clancy. He does not write with the same detail nor the same in depth, accurate and researched details. I didn't even finish the book. It was rushing towards an ending that was not plausible. The detail of a Clancy book was not there.
Lou does well.
Lou Diamond Phillips.
Last Clancy and anyone collaboration I will buy.
