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.

I would as the book is well written and exciting.
There were many "players" in the book but they were all tied together well.
Good narative and accents.
lYes, as a good holiday read, thoughtful, serious subject but well handled by the author.
Is the U S President quite so 'hands on' and is the presidency quite such a family affair?
It was in keeping with Clancy's high standards of providing factual detail without becoming stale.
Yes. Locked On was very good. It had a solid and interesting story line and I believe Lou Diamond Phillips did a great job narrating.
Yes. The plot was very good. Not the best ever or anything, but very solid and entertaining.
There were definite times that I did not want to stop listening.
A great action book after the first couple of slow chapters.
Action finish of the book.
Jack Ryan Jr.
Spy thriller with loads of action.
Lou Diamond Phillips is a great narrator and his interpretations of the characters keeps the reader interested.
An extension of the Jack Ryan series, Clancy continues to mature the characters in a logical, natural progression from the previous novels.
Lou Diamond Phillips brings the characters to life with accents and variations. It's easy to follow the characters because of his consistency in voices. Amazing!
I would purchase another Clancy book, especially if LDP is the narrator. It's a no-brainer for me.
This audiobook would make a great movie.
It has all the plots that you expect from a Clancy novel.
It was a good read and Lou Diamond Phillips is a good narrator.
Yes Lou Diamond Phillips puts you right in the action.
Action and voice changes.
Yes but it would give the plot away
Clancy uses this book for an undisguised rant about the politics of the Obama administration. He is entitled to his opinion, but he is not entitled to sell me his opinion as part of a guilty pleasure novel. It should have a warning label.
I have indeed listened to it once already, and will probably do again in the very near future if only to track Jack Ryan
Executive Orders as it really shows how fantastic a fiction writer Tom Clancy is
Lou Diamond Philips - I am biased since he is a descendant of my race, the Filipino race, be that as it may, because of Locked On, being the first I have heard Lou, the next thing I did was to search another Clancy Book read by Lou..... I did not regret it, and I am still searching for other books Lou reads for us listeners
It thrilled me a whole lot!
What is there to say..... I am an avid Clancy, Ludlum and Patterson addict
