    I was charmed by the first book in the series. I too had problems with the second book. I did however pursue it to the end. The third book only maintained my attention for three chapters and I was finished.

    Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

    "Too good to pass up!"
    Overall

    An enjoyable and timely read. I particularly appreciate the high level of research that is obvious in the story. The pacing is great with interesting side notes as to the how of things happening in the story. Also an insiders view of the workings of government that are not apparent to the typical viewer of the 6 o'clock news. The reader of course nails the characters with animation and accent renditions that would have you believe there is an entire cast. I will be looking forward to more titles narrated by Lou Diamond Phillips.
    GET the book, you will love it!
