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.

    Story
    "Couldn't stop listening- thoroughly enjoyable"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Locked On to be better than the print version?

    This was the second audio book i have purcahsed and was not disspointed. I listened to it on my walk to work and in the car ride home. I pottered around the house and was able to do chores and make dinner while listening. A great way to tune out. Love it!
    Names and acronyms were sometimes hard to reference as you cannot go back and recheck them like you would in a book, but if you have read the books you shouldn't have much trouble. I have missed a few in the series and still found it enjoyable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Lots of characters to get to know, very descriptive, easy to picture and action packed.


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

    I didn't recognise his voice at all, but he was very good, especially with the multitude of characters he had to keep up with.


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

    Yes I finished the whole book in about three days...a mighty feet considering its approx 17 hrs long.

    "Meh..."

    Ninety percent of the book is A+. Solid Clancy. At the end, the end he pulls Wolfe "Man in Full" style plot twist. What?! Other than that... Great book.

    "Clancy is back with his old style"

    This was a great book to listen to. It reminded me of Tom Clancy's earlier books. It is well written and you don't want to turn it off.

    The Jack Ryan series has be out there so long, I was curious to see how this book would evolve the characters, especially Jack Jr. It was well worth the credit. LDP does a good job narrating and giving the book additional life.

    "Waiting for next one"

    Lives up to the Clancy tradition. This book was easy to listen to and not need a flow chart of characters to keep track of like his earlier books. Phillips was able to execute the foreign names and places flawlessly like having lived there. Overall a captivating book that you hated to see the fast paced end come to and as usual leaves you anxiously waiting for the next one.

    Jack Ryan is always a favorite of mine because he's so likable


    Which character ??? as performed by Lou Diamond Phillips ??? was your favorite?

    Jack Ryan

    For sure! I have a long commute to work everyday and I didn't want to get out of the cars most morning!

    Story
    "Locked On delivers!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    For those who enjoy action and suspense, this book delivers both in a way that marries the story to the current geo-political reality of our times. Tom Clancy never fails to deliver and Lou Diamond Phillips reads it beautifully.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The action and the characters I've come to


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

    He reads it as I would in my own head, which makes this question tricky to answer. For me, his acting ability helps him bring the characters to life in a believeable, genuine way.


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

    It was extremely entertaining and something I was anxious to resume everytime I had to pause.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible's audiobooks are a great way to enhance the time one must spend on the more mundane activities of life maintenance, and a fantastic travel companion on short or long trips.

    Story
    "Tom Clancy Continues"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if you like to follow the on-going saga of The Ryans.


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

    Greaney's Grey Man series is similar. If you had read both authors, Greaney's influence was noticable.


    What three words best describe Lou Diamond Phillips’s voice?

    OK, not geat


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

    It certainly kept my interest and of course set up the story line for the next book.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to both Clancy's and Greaney's next books.
