    Any additional comments?

    Another installment in the Jack Ryan series (both senior and now junior), this book picks up where the last left off. Scrambling to find a new base of operations after their last was compromised by the Chinese, the members of the campus split up and lay low. Jack Ryan junior takes a job in London as a financial analyst and quickly becomes involved in a case involving Russia's state owned oil company Gazprom. John Clark and the other members of the operations unit become interested in Russia's largest crime syndicate, which has set up shop in the Ukraine, and fly to Kiev where they offer their assistance to the CIA station chief. Meanwhile, President Jack Ryan (senior) is involved in diplomacy trying to keep Russian forces from invading the Crimea region of Ukrainia. Additionally, President Ryan flashes back 30 years, when he was a CIA analyst investigating rumours of a KGB operative involved in assassinations.All these characters actions converge and the result is a very good novel. Lou Diamond Phillips does an excellent job in his narration, providing character accents and emotions which add to the quality of the story.If you liked the previous Jack Ryan novels then you will like this one as well. If you have never read the previous novels in the series, this one can still be enjoyed as a stand alone story. However, I recommend reading the books in order as the character development becomes deeper as the novels proceed. The first book in the series, "The Hunt for Red October," is still one of my favorites.

    "Liked it from start to finish"

    It's hard not to like a Tom Clancy book. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. It's his last, of course. I'm hoping that Mark Greaney wrote enough of it to hint that the Clancy style will continue to provide us with such great reads. I loved the detail in Command Authority. Everything here could have actually happened. The historical relevance is captivating. This book goes fast and deep.

    "Like the movie "Frequency" without the bloopers!"

    Loved the way the story was woven back & forth between Jack & Jack Jr! Filled in some blanks on Jack, gave us a very good introduction to Jack Jr, while keeping the intrigue & action very lively!

    "ok not great"

    The narrator's breathing was annoying. I was hoping it would eventually stop but no it was clearly annoying the entire length of the book.

    "tricky story line, but good book"

    Lou Diamond Phillips does another great job with this book. it has a lot of twist, and turns so you have to listen carefully to the story line. awesome detail on all weapons and military strategy, makes you feel like you are there. it drags a little in the middle, but then picked up again all the way to the end. I enjoyed it very much. Good Book!!!
