Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.
Meanwhile, Chinese cyber-warfare experts have launched a devastating attack on American infrastructure. It's a new combat arena, but it’s every bit as deadly as any that has gone before. Jack Ryan, Jr., and his colleagues at the Campus may be just the wild card that his father needs to stack the deck. There's just one problem: someone knows about the off-the-books intelligence agency and threatens to blow their cover sky high.

The book just reaches out and grabs you with so many intricate plot details that I would dig out more details on the second reading
Yes the book raced to a conclusion
He had a solid tone with extremely easy to discern voice - powerful
Lou Diamond Phillips was a really good narrator. Did voices and accents for the different characters and everything. The story was excellent, and if done right with a good screenplay, would make an excellent movie as well. Get the writers for Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, or Clear and Present Danger, get Harrison Ford to play the aged President Jack Ryan and Willem Dafoe to play the aged John Clark, it's almost perfect in terms of timing...
RIP Tom. We love and miss you, God knows, and I am certain it all looks far different from the Perspective at which you have now arrived. Mark Greaney represents you well, and Lou Diamond Phillips is keeping the flame burning.
Until we meet again.....
This is my second Tom Clancy book , and I have to say I love them . This book does not have a boring moment in it , keeps you wondering what's happening next . This is my first time listening to Lou diamond Phillips , and he is now among my favorite narrators . I think he gives great life to the characters
This is a great book whether you read it or listen to the audible version. Lou Diamond Phillips demonstrates good vocal range changing the tone and inflection for different characters.
