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.

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.
I never listen to audible books again so most likely I wouldn't listen to it again. Loved it the first time!
Jack Ryan is always a favorite of mine because he's so likable
For sure! I have a long commute to work everyday and I didn't want to get out of the cars most morning!
More Tom Clancy books please!!!
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.
The action and the characters I've come to
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.
It was extremely entertaining and something I was anxious to resume everytime I had to pause.
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.
Yes, if you like to follow the on-going saga of The Ryans.
Greaney's Grey Man series is similar. If you had read both authors, Greaney's influence was noticable.
OK, not geat
It certainly kept my interest and of course set up the story line for the next book.
Looking forward to both Clancy's and Greaney's next books.
When Jack Ryan Jr killed the head terrorist
He keep it interesting.
It held my attention until the end.
This story was much better than his last and reminded me of the old Tom Clancy.
Lou Diamond Phillips still does a good job at narrating.
The last part suggests another edition coming soon.
Lou Diamond Phillips is fantastic, what a fabulous voice. Tom Clancy's characters are great, another great book, from a great writer. I can hardly wait for the next in this series, the ending leaves you wanting more.
No, I will not read another book by Tom Clancy as long as he continues his right wing rant.. It is just Fox News fodder
He should kept his nonsensical political views out of the story
Lou's performance is great.. But the story sucks
Tom Clancy believes Muslims are naturally terrorists, the environment is there to exploit, big oil should not be regulated or taxed. If those are your beliefs you may like his books. Tom Clancy has become a meaningless author. He has bloated his books with his right wing neocon politics. Save your money for intelligent authors.
Any of the Jack Ryan or Raibow six books. Very exact and well written spy thrillers.
When the Hyper Liberal Scum Paul Laska gets found out.
Jack Ryan is Back?
Nice way he has kept the characters evolving thru the many books and now on to a new generation.
