Newly elected, Jack Ryan has found that being President is not easy: domestic pitfalls await him at every turn; there's a revolution in Liberia; the Asian economy is going down the tubes; and now, in Moscow, someone may have tried to assassinate the chairman of the SVR - the former KGB - with a rocket-propelled grenade. Were the potential assassins political enemies, the Russian Mafia, or disaffected former KGB? Or is something far more dangerous at work here? While Ryan dispatches his most trusted eyes and ears, including black ops specialist John Clark, to find out the truth of the matter, forces in China are moving ahead with a plan of truly audacious proportions. If they succeed, the world will never look the same again.

1 of my favorite of Clancy . 4 th listen
A+++. All characters active & participate in world wide plot to capture gold & oil from the Bear (Russia).
Great all around. You are either a fan or you're not of Clancy... But this was even better then reading it.
Can't recommend enough!!!
Retired and loving every minute!
Great Story well written and plotted. It was long....... At times I couldn't remember what all had happened earlier in the book. it's like two stories joined together.
The reality that a major war could start with the killing of two civilians by police is not too far fetched.
one of clancy's best
last of the big books
never tire of hearing it
and the reading also by one of the best
A middle-aged romantic who grew up reading Heinlen, Louis L'Amour and Richard Hooker. Expect and honest opinion, even if it's not PC.
It's hard to kick somebody when he's dead, but for any living Authors who want to take Tom's place: you can't keep saying that someone is a good, decent Christian - and then have every other word out of their mouth be the F-bomb, and also start each sentence by taking God's name in vain. Kind of makes me wonder if Tom actually knew what being a Christian means and where he is right now.
long engaging story, a little predictable, not many twists in the plot...
yes most of his work I have enjoyed
Lou diamond Philips
mostly, but I will not return to it like I have many other books
so much unnecessary swearing! why Clancy?
