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.

    "Much better than last"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.

    "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!!!!!!!

    "Best read of the year."
    Where does Locked On rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the best book I have heard this year. I listen to app 5 books a week. This book is a great read. Do not let the political comments influence your decision. If you like this type of book, you will like this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story started at a quick pace and picked up from there.

    "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.).

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Is Clancy actually writing this drivel?"
    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you are serious fan of Fox News, maybe. And if you're genuinely convinced that there's a terrorist behind every rock and anyone who doesn't agree with you is an anti-American potential terrorist, you'll love it.


    What could Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    How about believable characters? A real plot wouldn't have hurt either.


    Did Lou Diamond Phillips do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The narrator was fine. The book was almost a parody of Clancy's earlier efforts. Is Tom Clancy actually writing the books at all any more?


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Locked On?

    I wouldn't have published it. If it were a different author, it probably wouldn't have sold.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the third disappointment in a row from an author who used to write great thrillers. I never agreed with his politics, but the books were good. Now, the characters are all stereotypes and the plots are simplistic and silly. The great wealth of detail and careful crafting of characters and plots that made his book outstanding are just gone. They've been gone for a while, but I kept hoping that they'd show up again. I have hoped and faithfully bought the books ... but now, I think it's over for me. I'm going to give up on this author. I seriously doubt Clancy is writing the books himself anymore. They don't sound like his writing. I don't even recognize the characters: they have the same names, but they don't act like they did. Sad.

    "right wing nonsense.. save your money"
    Would you try another book from Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney and/or Lou Diamond Phillips?

    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


    What could Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    He should kept his nonsensical political views out of the story


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

    Lou's performance is great.. But the story sucks


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    I am a registered nurse and a father of four great kids. I live in a rural part of Oregon and love it. I enjoy books, but Sci-Fi Fantasy has allows been the ones I reach for more than others.

    Story
    "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.
