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.

    Lou did a great job on this book keeping the listener engaged and entertained with his narration. Tom does a great job spinning this tail. Probably a little deep in the details at times, might lose some readers, but for those of us who enjoy the action thriller, this won't let you down.

    "Lou Diamond shines"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Locked On to be better than the print version?

    Audio books can either be far superior to reading a novel, or ruin it completely. Locked On is superior. When you listen to a novel, you are accepting how the narrator interprets the characters and the whole impression of the story is in their hands, but it removes a lot of your own imagination in creating characters. Lou Diamond's brilliant reading and character voices makes it come so much more alive. There is no way this book would have been as good if I read it. I would have skimmed (or glossed) over technical terms, acronyms, and generally missed details.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Locked On keeps the pace moving and Clancy can sometimes go into detail and backgrounds far beyond what may be necessary in other books - which allows a vivid world to be imagined and keeps interest high.


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

    This is my first Lou Diamond Phillips book, and I will be seeking him out from now on. This guy has a gift and made the story great. He has the perfect cadence with a smooth voice and excellent character reproduction. Things like gun model names or difficult foreign person names roll off his tongue with ease. He even pulls off a voice with dual accents for a Pakistan man who lived in England!I did not hear the last Clancy novel that he narrated but it will be my next, and I'd bet Lou Diamond Phillips is Clancy's go-to narrator from now on.

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

    So easy to fall into the story. Smooth as velvet. Easy to listen and follow.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I kept thinking I knew what was going to happen. Each outcome was a surprise.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When her boss told her to keep spying.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end.


    Any additional comments?

    The S.O.B. left me hanging and hating her for betrayal and succumbing to the establishment against the truth.

    Any additional comments?

    This is Tom Clancy at his best and though I'm not familiar with Mark Greaney yet (will be though), the writing is seamless from Tom Clancy's style. Wonderfully exciting, ripped from today's headlines, and thrilling to the end. It's good to still have heroes in books and these are the best. Thanks Mr. Clancy and audible! I will be looking for more. As always Lou Diamond Phillips does an excellent job.

    "Action!"

    Although the book is a novel, I wouldn't consider the plot or the story line as "novel." Since the terrorists come from the middle east their names and 3 letter organizations become somewhat difficult to remember and/or relate to. But the action scenes are many and well detailed. The political portion is very contemporary and somewhat believable. It was good enough to tempt me to read a sequel...if written.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Locked On to be better than the print version?

    I love the book, and also the fact that it is narrated by Lou Diamond Phillips!! I haven't heard the whole thing yet, but the idea of having a book read to me while I relax, or even do housework is great. The price is nice too and I can get one free book per month. There are so many to choose from.

    Try it! Its a great deal!! :)

    Love all of them, especially the son.


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

    His sexy voice.

    Same name as book.

    "Couldn't listen fast enough - good read"
    Would you listen to Locked On again? Why?

    The text is complicated and requires your full attention because of the technology used, so I might listen again just to see what I missed the first time around.


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

    Similar to other clancy books


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

    Have not heard this performer before, but would look for him again. Outstanding reading.


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

    I wish I had had that much time in one sitting!

    "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.
