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 enjoy reading (and listening to) Books! I have enjoyed fantasy and history the most, but more recently I have been brodening my horizon.
Loh does a great job of giving each character a personal touch on the voice, and it is easy to tell who he is reading as.
I got this book not realizing that it was the middle of the series. It does stand alone as well. I loved the characters and the way that Clancy puts things together is phenomenal. His knowledge of all things military is amazing and he gives life to the story in a way that others in this genre don't quite achieve.
I loved it!!
I would rate this book in my top 25. I would have rated it higher but I cringe every time I hear a book like this take God's name in vain when there is no reason to do so to make their point!
The plot continues as you finally get more of a background on some of the characters that was missing in the movies.
The plot in itself was the best part of the book. In this day where the world is getting smaller but we are still impacted by other countries this brought this to focus on how important are intelligence community is for our protection.
No, I listen as I drive and this keeps me on the edge of my seat as the miles pass behind me.
Once is enough.
The military speak that Clancy expresses is fantastic. The difficult to pronounce names that Philips breezes through was very well down.
This is my second with Phillips. The last one was also a Tom Clancy book. I can't wait for the next one.
Excellant story that keeps you interested in all the characters from the Jack Ryan series.
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.
