    Story
    (3163)

    Although his father had been reluctant to become a field operative, Jack Ryan Jr. wants nothing more. Privately training with a seasoned Special Forces drill instructor, he’s honing his skills to transition his work within The Campus from intelligence analysis to hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can—even as Jack Ryan Sr. campaigns for re-election as President of the United States. But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and the personal have just become equally dangerous.

    Jackie says: "WHAT? WHEN? WHO? WHY? WHERE?"
    "WAY too much detail!"

    What disappointed you about Locked On?

    Though I am usually a Clancy fan, and thought Lou Diamond Phillips is a superb narrator, this book is beyond tedious. There are too many meandering unrelated story lines and the book is so full of extraneous technical detail that it could use another round or two of heavy editing! Indeed, it feels like the authors are just showing off their technical knowledge without regard to pacing of the story.


    Has Locked On turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Have you listened to any of Lou Diamond Phillips’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not, but will now look for books read by him. He's one of the best narrators I've heard, and I've listened to over one hundred audible books.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Locked On?

    I'd cut most of the technical information and jargon. I'd also spin off some of the story lines for another book.
