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.

    "EXCELLANT READ"
    Where does Locked On rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    EXCELLANT READ ! One of the top


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

    Most of the time, however during some of the longer narratives re political positions was a little dull.


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

    Excellant


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

    Yes, the personal interactions between father (Sr.) and son (Jr.) when father knew son was in a life threatening situtation.


    Any additional comments?

    Only hope is that Clancey has another in the works and that it will be out soon. This is a CAN NOT PUT DOWN BOOK!!!!!!!

    "Horrible"

    This starts out OK but soon devolves into a thinly veiled republican neoconservative propaganda tale. Military = Good, privatized military = Better. Republican = good, Democrats and liberals = bad, ugly, fat & traitors.

    I am no hippie terrorist lover, I actually used to work in WTC 2 in 2001 but this simplistic drivel is way below Tom and I hope Mark Greaney runs a mile from future projects, I really liked his past book.

    Avoid.

    "A Great American Story"
    Where does Locked On rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I can see why thin-skinned liberals would be offended by this strong story-line. I don't read fiction for political reasons, but this one certainly rings clear for any true American. Our enemies are everywhere and this book clearly reflects the reality of current day politics and beliefs. Tom does an excellent job as ever showing the true cost of freedom. Those who feel offended after hearing this book can certainly move away to another country and try to speak their opinions there (although there is little tolerance for freedom of speech in other countries. Good luck though.).

    "ultra right wing trash"
    What disappointed you about Locked On?

    Clancy used to be a very good writer. Now he just spouts Rush Limbaugh like trash talk. Every arab is out to get the U.S., and every liberal is undermining the country. This is the last Clancy book I'll ever buy. Don't waste your money or your time.

    "The campus continues their mission"

    The Campus-an off the book all out spy agent created by Jack Ryan and now has Jack Jr. as and operator has to try and stop the URC and the EMIR along with another enemy who everyone thought was dead. They are being investigated, turned on, and outright plotted against all in the effort to stop Jack Sr. from winning another chance at being President a second time. This is another solid book in the Jack Ryan universe having all the characters in play the book can be overwhelming especially if you try to read it in 18 hours, I don’t recommend you’ll miss something and not know it until you start to read the next installment. Enjoy Clancy fans.

    Story
    "Great Book."

    Before we get started let me warn my liberal friends to look away. This is not a sight you will enjoy.

    Locked On is the newest book in the "Ryanverse." For over 25 years Clancy has shared the history of Jack Ryan and company with us. In some ways this world is a parallel universe. Ryan experiences much of the same history, but he is there in ways that no true historical figure can be.

    The book starts off a short time after Dead or Alive and continues the story from there. Jack Ryan, Jr. is now the lead character. Along with his cousin Dominick Caruso, and Ryan stalwarts John Clark and Ding Chavez he continues to track down terrorists as part of the clandestine "Campus." Jack Senior is running for President again against a leftist president more concerned with social engineering than truly defending the nation. Behind this president is a wealthy businessman from Eastern Europe who wants to bring socialism to full fruition in the USA. Of course none of these characters resemble any actual people living or dead!

    In order to embarrass Ryan the president goes after John Clark, a man with a past. While Clark is on the run the rest of the Campus must track down a master terrorist and stop him before he carries out the most devastating terror plot ever launched.

    If my liberal friends are still here I warned you, you will not like this. This book is full of the useful idiots, left wing politicians, left wing lawyers, left wing billionaires, et. al. who make up our society. It is just painful for some folks to look in the mirror.

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

    Excellent book, good narrator, story is believable and flows naturally.
    Interestingly, author recognizes the fact that threat to Western civilization is coming from Muslim extremism, no matter what country they are from.


    Any additional comments?

    One thing, which doesn???t mean much to most people around here, but I have to mention it:
    I am a native Russian language speaker, and Narrator???s attempt (or lack thereof) of pronouncing Russian words and geographical locations to sound Russian is annoying beyond believe. I was so irritated with my efforts to recognize what he is trying to say, that I almost dropped the book altogether. How hard would it be to actually consult somebody? Hell, I would teach him myself???

    A very gripping and intricate story from Tom. It was awesome!


    What does Lou Diamond Phillips bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    "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.
