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.

Yes I will listen to it again. Just to catch more of the action and the thought process behind the characters. The Internet has blesses our lives but I am reminded of a saying from one of my former bosses: No good deed goes unpunished. What would it be like to live in a world without threats?
The exposure of our exposure to cyber attack.
Well read, good easy to listen voice with emotions where needed.
No. While there were times when I slowed down or went around the block an extra time - there was too much happening to listen to the whole thing in one sitting.
This is a great, unputdownable book. Very good plot and quite on point given the recent cyber attacks. Quite a thrill. I thought the narrator was good but too fast -- I found myself rewinding a few times to catch up.
This is one of those audiobooks that you hate for it to end
One of the best.
Yes, but time would not allow.
Ive listened to a few other audio books, hunger games, harry potter... but this was my first Tom Clancy one. by far it scores highest. good voices by the reader. great story
I couldnt stop listening! cool story and good reader; good voices and narration
my favorite scene was when center finally made a cyberattack and made his power known by hacking and hijacking different USA UAV drones. I thought that was particularly frightening and impressive.
Familiar classic Clancy style.
The Chinese CIA agent was entertaining.
Air combat scenes were well researched.
No. Do not have such reactions to books.
"Threat Vector" is Tom Clancy back at his best. I have not been especially happy with some of Clancy's more recent books but this one it first class. Lou Diamond Phillips does an excellant characterization. Cyberterriorism is something that is real and people that can do at least most of the things that Clancy's villain does really exist and are doing damage all over the world. The sooner we become aware of such things the better off we will be.
It keep me guessing on who was behind the plot. This was another good write by Clancey
Yes, at first I was not use to his style, He is getting better though
I liked the technology as applied to the "real" world.
I liked the "good guy" characters.
I liked his portrayal of the different characters' voices.
I wanted to get to the end of the book to find out what happened but I didn't want the story to be over.
I really liked the narration by Lou Diamond Phillips. Somewhat chose the book because of this.

Sorry but so far I have not had time to listen to it ! When I do I will be glad to review it for you!
The characters who have wound their way throughout the Jack Ryan novels feel like family at this point. The members of this remarkably talented group struggle with everyday wishes and problems. You care about what happens to them.
I listened to this just days before the Chinese government hacked into several US companies. Their People's Liberation Army is believed to be behind cyber attacks which have, in 2013, been accused of hacking into Facebook, Apple, the New York Times, companies involved in the critical infrastructure of the United States such as the electrical power grid, gas lines and waterworks and and US government agencies, among others. While this is a work of fiction, Clancy has once again tapped into the events that are shaping life as we know it right now. The intricate chain of events and weaving together of the lives of each character keep you on the edge of your seat. The level of reality to what is really coming out of China today will scare the heck out of you.
Tense and scary
