The US President, along with most of the Cabinet and Congress, is dead. Dazed and confused, the man who only minutes before had been confirmed as the new Vice-President of the United States is told that he is now President.
President John Patrick Ryan.
With stunning force, Ryan's responsibilities crush on him. He must calm an anxious and grieving nation, all while attempting to reconstitute a Cabinet and a Congress with the greatest possible speed.
But that is not all. Both within Washington DC and across the globe, there are those eager to act on the animosity towards the United States and others from Jack Ryan's past that harbour a grudge towards the new President himself. Soon they will present Jack Ryan with a crisis so big even he cannot imagine it.

"His plotting here is masterful, as is his strumming of patriotic heartstrings. This is heavyweight entertainment." (Publishers Weekly, Starred Review)
"Vintage Clancy ... The conclusion features the most harrowing battlefield prose Clancy has written since Red Storm Rising." (Bookpage)
I enjoy reading fantasy, crime and mystery thrillers, as well as historical novels.
I recommend this audiobook to anyone who enjoys great political thrillers. Tom Clancy was a master of the genre.
Jack Ryan for his ability to step up to plate.
Once again too lengthy but I gave it a red hot go.
"Tom Clancy in audio form really delivers"
It is the best book by far and have listening to it multiple times in the few weeks I have had it.
I don't want to spoil the ending but listening to the final sevens really made the hairs on my arms stand on end. The audio is delivered so well
On the whole yes. Some narration seems very robotic but then that has a lot to do with the Way Tom Clancy writes
It would be difficult as lots of stuff imagined is earily true to life.
Keep up the good work some more clanceys heading my way next month
