    Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

    Would you listen to Threat Vector again? Why?

    Great listen - I love those tech related plots - makes you think about things. I was on the edge of my seat (so to speak) through the whole thing.

    Summoned by Military Intelligence to Washington, D.C., Reacher is sent undercover. The assignment that awaits him: The army is meeting with its Capitol Hill paymasters for classified talks on a new, state-of-the-art sniper rifle for U.S. forces. But vital details about the weapon are leaking - straight from the Capitol and probably into the hands of unidentified foreign arms dealers.

    The short story was fun. Leaves you wanting more, but sometimes quick book is just right.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Smelser made a huge mistake reading this book herself. I don't mean to be rude, but my 8 year old son reads with more fluidity. It was horrible! I don't mind a weak story, but this was by far the worst narration I have come across and I read a lot.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lynne M. Smelser again?

    Most likely not.


    What didn’t you like about Lynne M. Smelser’s performance?

    Poor characterization, stuttering, repeating entire sentences and just an obvious lack of reading skill.
