    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.

    Overall

    I was really looking forward to this audio book, but it has been a chore to get through. If this had been Mr. Clancy's first book, we never would have heard from him again. Slow, plodding, overly political and over descriptive--even in the abridged version. There is nothing special about the plot and the story takes forever to move along. I did think Lou Diamond Philips did a wonderful job--too bad the literature is so weak. Time to forget this author and try out someone at the top opf their game instead of at the end of it... like John Sanford's new Virgil Flowers series.
