Locked On | [Tom Clancy, Mark Greaney]

Locked On

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.

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.

    "ultra right wing trash"
    What disappointed you about Locked On?

    Clancy used to be a very good writer. Now he just spouts Rush Limbaugh like trash talk. Every arab is out to get the U.S., and every liberal is undermining the country. This is the last Clancy book I'll ever buy. Don't waste your money or your time.

    I am a registered nurse and a father of four great kids. I live in a rural part of Oregon and love it. I enjoy books, but Sci-Fi Fantasy has allows been the ones I reach for more than others.

    "The campus continues their mission"

    The Campus-an off the book all out spy agent created by Jack Ryan and now has Jack Jr. as and operator has to try and stop the URC and the EMIR along with another enemy who everyone thought was dead. They are being investigated, turned on, and outright plotted against all in the effort to stop Jack Sr. from winning another chance at being President a second time. This is another solid book in the Jack Ryan universe having all the characters in play the book can be overwhelming especially if you try to read it in 18 hours, I don’t recommend you’ll miss something and not know it until you start to read the next installment. Enjoy Clancy fans.

    Story
    "Great Book."

    Before we get started let me warn my liberal friends to look away. This is not a sight you will enjoy.

    Locked On is the newest book in the "Ryanverse." For over 25 years Clancy has shared the history of Jack Ryan and company with us. In some ways this world is a parallel universe. Ryan experiences much of the same history, but he is there in ways that no true historical figure can be.

    The book starts off a short time after Dead or Alive and continues the story from there. Jack Ryan, Jr. is now the lead character. Along with his cousin Dominick Caruso, and Ryan stalwarts John Clark and Ding Chavez he continues to track down terrorists as part of the clandestine "Campus." Jack Senior is running for President again against a leftist president more concerned with social engineering than truly defending the nation. Behind this president is a wealthy businessman from Eastern Europe who wants to bring socialism to full fruition in the USA. Of course none of these characters resemble any actual people living or dead!

    In order to embarrass Ryan the president goes after John Clark, a man with a past. While Clark is on the run the rest of the Campus must track down a master terrorist and stop him before he carries out the most devastating terror plot ever launched.

    If my liberal friends are still here I warned you, you will not like this. This book is full of the useful idiots, left wing politicians, left wing lawyers, left wing billionaires, et. al. who make up our society. It is just painful for some folks to look in the mirror.

    "Exciting book"
    What made the experience of listening to Locked On the most enjoyable?

    Excellent book, good narrator, story is believable and flows naturally.
    Interestingly, author recognizes the fact that threat to Western civilization is coming from Muslim extremism, no matter what country they are from.


    Any additional comments?

    One thing, which doesn???t mean much to most people around here, but I have to mention it:
    I am a native Russian language speaker, and Narrator???s attempt (or lack thereof) of pronouncing Russian words and geographical locations to sound Russian is annoying beyond believe. I was so irritated with my efforts to recognize what he is trying to say, that I almost dropped the book altogether. How hard would it be to actually consult somebody? Hell, I would teach him myself???

    "Not my favorite...but will read the next one"

    I think that this novel got too bogged down with technical details for me. The parts that involved Jack and the rest of the central characters, I found extremely interesting and gripping. I will continue to listen to the Jack Ryan series. Hopefully the next book will be as good as previous ones.

    "Very Boring"
    What would have made Locked On better?

    If Tom Clancy had actually written the story


    What was most disappointing about Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney ’s story?

    One of the worst novels I have listened to


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lou Diamond Phillips?

    Very slow and monotone voice


    What character would you cut from Locked On?

    Latin America was worn out years ago, just bury it for a while.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read and listened to many of Clancy's books,but will not be listening to anymore.

    "Very Intriguing"
    What made the experience of listening to Locked On the most enjoyable?

    The story line is very intriguing and keeps you wondering what is going to happen next. Lou Diamond Phillips does an outstanding job with all the character voices and making them special.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    John Clark - one tough dude.


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

    LDP adds a dimension to the characters that I would not have factored in. His ability to bring the different voice and mannerism to each character really adds to the reading enjoyment.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me want to get the next book as soon as I could to keep the story going.


    Any additional comments?

    Listening to creative stories and well presented dialogue makes long driving trips a lot more pleasurable.

    "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.

    "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.
