    Jungles come in many forms. There are the steamy rain forests of the Burmese highlands. There are the lies and betrayals of the world of covert operations. And there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination. To pull off their latest mission, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon must survive them all.

    Noreen says: "Another great story"
    "Give the narrator some oxygen"
    Overall

    Great story but----- What's wrong with the narrator. Much of the time there are definite gasps for breath that are extremely distracting. Perhaps a bottle of oxygen would help. Made it through the book and the story truly was great. I can only imagine how much better it would have been if Culp had a better, or at least quieter set of lungs. Two stars lost by the narrator.

    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.

    What did you like best about Threat Vector? What did you like least?

    Did not finish


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney ? Why or why not?

    Yes, as long as the narration is improved


    What didn’t you like about Lou Diamond Phillips’s performance?

    His breathing during the narration ruins the book. I kept wondering when the next intake of breath would occur which over-powered my interest in the book. I put it away for another day, possibly, and will seriously reconsider listening to any book that he narrates.


    Was Threat Vector worth the listening time?

    Did not finish.
