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.

    I enjoy reading (and listening to) Books! I have enjoyed fantasy and history the most, but more recently I have been brodening my horizon.

    "Excelent!!"
    What about Lou Diamond Phillips’s performance did you like?

    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.

    "Locked on - Right on target"

    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!!

    Story
    "Another great Tom Clancy Yarn!"
    Where does Locked On rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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!


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

    The plot continues as you finally get more of a background on some of the characters that was missing in the movies.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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.


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

    No, I listen as I drive and this keeps me on the edge of my seat as the miles pass behind me.

    "Lou Diamond Philips is one of the best narrators!"
    Would you listen to Locked On again? Why?

    Once is enough.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The military speak that Clancy expresses is fantastic. The difficult to pronounce names that Philips breezes through was very well down.


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

    This is my second with Phillips. The last one was also a Tom Clancy book. I can't wait for the next one.
