    Story
    "Could not wait to listen to more"

    On the negative side, there was just a few too many easy resolutions for Jr. And Sr. In this book. Knowing this genre well, I would expect this, but a little more difficulty for the protagonists would have gone a long way.

    On the positive, having two stories running in parallel and connecting them through a common set of characters was brilliant. The development of one character in particular was extremely fun to watch. I could not wait to get in the car or on the tractor (yes tractor, not everyone lives in the burbs) to listen to the next chapter. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

    Lou Diamond Phillips nails the Clancy Books and characters. His British sounds a little Aussie, but over all he is a fantastic performer for these books and characters.

    "Why is Lou Diamond Phillips not the narrator for all of Tom Clancy?"

    I'm glad to see the Jack Ryan Series continue. Great story and an even better narration. Worth the credit.

    "very good"

    I couldn't stop listening. I was worried that with less Tom Clancy that the story would suffer but it didn't

    "Great Jack Ryan Novel!"

    If anything, Lou Diamond Phillips makes this shine!!
    Although the parallel story line of "present day" and "30 years earlier" is a great blend of classic Jack Ryan and Jack Jr.

    Overall, very enjoyable.

    "If you're a fan of the genre"

    A great continuation of the story line tying in some classic Jack Ryan with some Jack Ryan Jr. As always, Lou Diamond Phillips performance brings the characters to life.

    "Worthy and Entertaining"

    Lou Diamond Phillips does a great job bringing the characters to life.
    Action packed. A bit slow after a quick start, but momentum builds again until you can't stop listening.

    "Dual Story Lines Homage to Tom Clancy"

    In many ways, this dual plot line is confusing but appropriate. It's like the official handing over of the character reins from Ryan to his son, and sadly from Tom Clancy (RIP 2013) to his apparent heir and quite competent Mark Greaney.

    As the series evolves, I hope that Greaney will see the advantage of strong and plot active female characters. The series has occasionally done this in the past, and modern warfare now allows for those female roles to be present.

    Military fiction with great tech and fight/battle scenes.
