    Story
    (2706)

    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.

    Robert B. Wales says: "Same great Clancey - Great narration"
    "Dreadful"
    Overall

    I hadn't read or listened to Tom Clancy in 15 years. This was dreadful. Nothing like Red October or the other greats. It seemed like the author (I assume it was Blackwood) strung together a handful of old short stories with nonsensical political comments as transitions. I hope this wasn't written by Clancy.

    I thought the story, the writing and the reader were brilliant. I very much enjoyed the story.
