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.

    "Could not stop listening!"

    I am a Clancy addict, I freely admit. This book was so action packed and fast paced I could not stop listening. I listened to it for 10 hours at work and the 15 minute trip home. Some of Clancy's book get so detailed they kind of bog you down with information. There is some of that here but overall I think the duo of Greaney and Clancy is excellent. If you enjoy Clancy or Greaney you can't go wrong with this book. The narration by Phillips is excellent as well.

    Story
    "Dull and longwinded"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I felt this story just dragged on and on, the author I am sure felt the details were meant to add perspective to the story but I found it interrupted the flow and lost interest many times and in fact for the first time when listening to a book I tuned out whole sections of the book.

    "Lou Diamond Phillips is the best"
    What did you love best about Locked On?

    Lou Diamond Phillips is the very best narrator I have heard - he has a mastery of accents and language. He is the audible book!

    Story
    "Good cliff hanger movie but very partisan"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Less political


    Would you recommend Locked On to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. Too partisan.


    Did Lou Diamond Phillips do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes.


    Could you see Locked On being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Tom Clancy has a great page turner style. If your political views are anyting other than far right, some of the passages may make your neck hairs bristle.

    "Exactly what you expect from Clancy"
    Where does Locked On rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's a great book that keeps you entertained.


    What other book might you compare Locked On to and why?

    Most of Clancy's other books. Especially his newer books.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The final firefight in Soviet Russia.


    Any additional comments?

    Clancy does a great job of not only wrapping up some story lines and he leaves a few open for the next Jack Ryan book. Taking the direction of developing Jack Ryan Jr. is turning into a good one.

    "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.

    One of the best Tom Clancy's I've read.

    "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.
