Publisher's Summary

Although his father had been reluctant to become a field operative, Jack Ryan Jr. wants nothing more. Privately training with a seasoned Special Forces drill instructor, he's honing his skills to transition his work within The Campus from intelligence analysis to hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can—even as Jack Ryan Sr. campaigns for re-election as President of the United States.

But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and the personal have just become equally dangerous. A devout enemy of Jack Sr. launches a privately funded vendetta to discredit him by connecting the presidential candidate to a mysterious killing in the past by John Clark, his longtime ally.

A shadowy mercenary team is dispatched to capture the former Navy SEAL. With Clark on the run, it’s up to Jack Ryan Jr., along with Ding Chavez, Dominic Caruso, and the rest of the Campus team, to stop a threat emerging in the Middle East: A corrupt Pakistani general has entered into a deadly pact with a fanatical terrorist to procure nuclear warheads, which can be used to blackmail any world power into submission.

With the breakneck speed and military action scenes that have made him the premier thriller writer of our time, Tom Clancy delivers a novel of high-tech warfare in which the enemy within may be even more devastating than the enemy without.

Take another thrill ride with Jack Ryan.
Play the Jack Ryan Quiz Game to join the team at "The Campus". A passing grade gets you a free preview of the book, along with an interview with narrator Lou Diamond Phillips.

    "A Good Narrator Really Makes a Difference"

    But, a great narrator can make a terrific story unforgettable.

    That is what Lou Diamond Phillips does for Locked On. Phillips is fabulous!

    It would be my greatest wish fulfilled to have Phillips re-narrate all of the Tom Clancy classics. I would buy (or re-buy) every one.

    Locked On is one of my top-three favorite Clancy novels. It sets up a smooth transition from the old-Clancy characters to the 2nd-generation characters. Within this story, ALL the old characters are present and involved with the new characters. Nicely done.

    The story is first-rate. The depth of plot, full-bodied characters, and pacing are all what you'd expect from Clancy. This is tight, high-action, intrigue at its best.

    Clancy's hallmark is intelligent plotting and writing. It's difficult, even painful, to read many of the other authors in this genre after having read so much Clancy.

    "Great Story. More Lou Diamond Philips please"
    Where does Locked On rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's a good story, and I'd agree that the political stuff can be too much sometimes, but overall I really like these books since I've listened to all the Mitch Rapp series at least twice and need some other sort of fix :-)
    Lou Diamond Philips really made the experience great, however. Listening to older books such as The Bear and the Dragon, really make you appreciate the style of Lou Diamond Philips... especially when there are so many different characters and so much dialog. It definitely helps me follow the story since I'm not great with remembering all the names!


    What about Lou Diamond Phillips’s performance did you like?

    The voices. He makes the story really easy to follow.

    Story
    "Vince Flynn wannabe"
    Would you try another book from Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney and/or Lou Diamond Phillips?

    No I would not.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney again?

    No


    Have you listened to any of Lou Diamond Phillips’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Haven't, but his good.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Locked On?

    I would cut out the rightwing wackadoodle screeds included in the book. This Mark Greaney doesn't build characters but caricatures built on his political ideologies. As with Vince Flynn what started as good characters and story lines just becomes ponderous prose and not good reading, unless your some rightwing reactionary.


    Any additional comments?

    Isnt it about time these OLD authors just give it up rather than farming out the franchise to wannabe's.

    "Clancy and Greaney weave a great plot!"
    What made the experience of listening to Locked On the most enjoyable?

    Lou Diamnond Phillips narration makes you think that you are in the same room with the characters listening to real conversations.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Locked On?

    The ending leaves you wnating to read the next book immediately! Hurry up Tom!


    What about Lou Diamond Phillips’s performance did you like?

    Lou Diamond Phillips makes the characters come alive. I never knew he could do so many voices and accents so well.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I haven't read (listened) to a Tom Clancy book in years because of his work straying from hie early days. I took a chance and was not disappointed! Great fast paced story. Great story telling by Lou Diamond Phillips. I hope to hear another book he reads. Classic Tom Clancy with great details of a crazy area in the world.

    "Another amazing one from Tom Clancy"

    Another amazing book from Tom Clancy. After listening to this one, I'm wishing that the next one will be out soon -- I won't spoil it but there's a cliff-hanger at the end that's leaving me wisihing the next one was already out. Definately a must-"read"

    "Action packed tedium"
    What disappointed you about Locked On?

    TMI !
    too much information
    too much repetition (are we morons with limited memory, or what?)
    it was a major struggle to finish this


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Charles Dickens without a doubt, you can keep this third rate action packed drivel.


    Which character ??? as performed by Lou Diamond Phillips ??? was your favorite?

    Lou Diamond Philips was an excellent narrator- the only thing that kept me with this until the miserable and inevitable end


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment, boredom, annoyance


    Any additional comments?

    I took this book to apply some light relief after a couple of Jo Nesbo books. Guess what ? for me now it is DIckens and then a couple more Nesbo real thrillers!

    "Lou Diamond Phillips is an awesome narrator"
    Where does Locked On rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    2nd best Tom Clancy book I've listened too. Among all the audio books???? A Tom Clancy book is like watching an action movie, it doesn't make you any smarter, but it's enjoyable and a good diversion. Not to say I'm ashamed to be a fan, I'm not, I just can't compare his work to Mark Twain.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was hard to stop listening. LDP is a great narrator, he makes the story come alive.


    What does Lou Diamond Phillips bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His accents, intonation, and style kept me interested. Some narrators can really be tedious and boring, but LDP seems enthusiastic and works hard to get the characters right. I will definitely listen to any Tom Clancy book he reads.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I really like the action in Tom Clancy's books, I'm not as big of a fan of the politics, but overall they're worth it and I will continue to listen especially with a great narrator.

    "Another great story"

    As usual Tom Clancy weaves a wonderful nail biting story that will keep you up late at night spell bound with anticipation and expectancy. There is however one small fly in the ointment. Please, please, please, do not under any circumstances allow an American actor to try and do a welsh accent. It didn't work, it made me cringe, it fluctuated between a terrible Scottish accent to an even worse Irish accent, but it never even came close to being a Welsh one. Having said that is is still a great story.

    "Excellent book, really well read!"

    What can I say? For those that follow the Tom Clancy/Jack Ryan universe this is another excellent installment in the already first rate series. A good, solid (and fairly accurate, if the news is to be believed) story about political in-fighting within Pakistan and the US with the usual sub-plots and excellent pace that holds it all together. Lou Diamond Phillips reads the story really and, dodgy Welsh accents aside, does a great job of bringing the characters and situations to life - in short does exactly what I'd expect but never gets in the way of the story.
    Given the length of the story the end feels a little rushed but this really is only a minor gripe that doesn't detract from a really good audio book! Bring on the next one!

    "From start to finish"

    This was a fantastic listen. My first Tom Clancy and I loved it. Lou Diamond Phillips is a superb narrator. He can not do a Welsh accent, at all. Fortunately there were only half a dozen lines requiring it (as such worth a listen for that alone)
    I'm going for Dead or Alive, the book before this in the series next.
    Hope this helps
    :)

    "Great read let down by an abrupt ending"

    I have been a Tom Clancy fan for many years, so when I purchased an Audible membership I thought I would give his latest book a try!

    The story line is excellent with lots of action and intrigue, narrated well by Lou Diamond Philips.

    Unfortunately it is let down by an ending which felt like there was something missing. As with all Clancy novels I was expecting things to come to head for a grand finale, unfortunately I was let down somewhat. The ending was not as grandiose as I would have anticipated from previous Clancy novels.

    Other than the last couple of chapters I found the book an excellent read, however I would recommend listening to the previous Jack Ryan Jnr novel as this follows on chronologically form that.

    "If you like Jack Ryan, you'll love his son"

    Although Locked On is a shorter tale than most of the old Clancy tales, the story races along at breakneck speed and across half the globe. The plot is every bit as complex as one expects from a Clancy story although I miss the incredible technical detail which is always spot accurate.

    It is nice that John Clarke and Ding Chavez have moved forward into these new tales, and one feels a dynasty coming on.

    Lou Diamond Philips does an excellent job as narrator and I looking forward to listening to Dead Or Alive after the holidays.

    The twist at the end which will carry forward until the sequel is well worth waiting for and I actually gasped out loud in a public train compartment "Oh my God!" which drew me a few curious stares.

    Impossible to put on pause.
