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.

What can I say, Clancy along with Greaney has meant the very high expectation of a great novel! And the huge plus is Lou D. Phillips awesome job at narrating this masterpiece. The narrator can make or break a good book....so hats off to Phillips for doing his part to make this book fantastic to listen to!
The World According to JimG944
I rate the action/suspense novel Locked On by Tom Clancy 4 of 5 stars. This novel had more of a Ludlum feel to it than Clancy, but hey, I enjoyed it. A modern-day terrorist plot is at the heart of this story. The reason for four stars rather than five is that the story seemed to have several plotlines in flight that didn’t tie together in a meaningful way. In fact, the finale plotline seemed to start about ½ way into the book and it didn’t build from the pre-work done in the other plot lines. So, to me, the story was fragmented. That said, it was still a good solid story with richly developed characters. When you get to the finale story line, you’ll wonder “how the heck did we get here?”. I do recommend this book.
As a reader of EVERY Clancy fiction work (as well as sill knock offs bearing his name only) I was deeply offended by the relentless ad hominem attacks upon the character President Ed Keelty a "straw man" for President Barack Obama.
Clancy, a well known extreme neo con resort to personal insult and shallow jingoistic political attacks.
While the plot line is compelling the story evolves in a convoluted disjointed fashion un characteristic of his previous novels.
The almost 'Fox News" like personal attacks and belittling comments only serve to further diminish from the usual high level of satisfaction a Clancy novel provides.
Try "Against All Enemies" or "Red October" or any previous CLANCY novel each of which is far superior to this horribly flawed effort
Leave there tunnel vision political beliefs at home
Phenomenal performance! Outstanding modulation and distinct accents. His performance serves to raise a dismal work to acceptable for the listener.
Right blistering negative reviews... This is a first with Tom Clancy.
I shall far more cautious with Clancy's future works. For years I have purchased each of his novels with little for no thought.
never again, what happened to old tom? drinking to much of old Rush L. koolade i think.
had a good story line but had to try to tie Bush 2 fXXX ups to the thing that makes sence.
don't remember, i had no problem with Lou's work,
go back to Rian being a hero and not a mouth peace for the bush/ chany FXXXups.

He isn terrible. Bland and no emotion. He should never narrate a book again.
