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.

since there is no way to mark books as read in the library I thought this might be a way to mark them
I enjoyed the book so much that I went right back for a second listening! Now that he is gone, I'm not sure what else is worth listening out there!
This is a great story with a wonderful performance by the narrator. Suspenseful, intriguing, engaging.
Lou and some of the content made it mind numbing at times. I am a huge Clancy fan... But this one missed it.
The narration was a bit eh... Also they tend to get really long and boring in setting up some of the characters. Actually made the book boring. I guess I just need to stick to Clancy classics.
Great story line and subplot, I found myself talking and yelling the characters.
The capture of the chinese death squad leader, he folded like a deck of cards, coward!
The rescue of the Hornet pilot
This was my first audio book by Clancy, It shall not be the last!
Love excellent narrators like Ray Porter. Love the Joe Ledger series.
The author is not alive. So there is no next novel.
The book starts off very well. But ending was hurried and unbelievable.
Having spent years growing older with these characters, its nice to see they are feeling the years too!!
Pity Mr Clancy died before his time, however I look forward to the book that's already done.
Absolutely I would recommend this book to a friend, it is probably more accurate that the news.
I really like Gavin Biery, the behind the scenes computer whiz who can do just about anything in the cyberworld.
Such a great and consistent portrayal of the characters.
It made me shudder, thinking that this cyber-warfare is really happening, and hoping we really have some folks that are as good as Jack Jr. and Ding and Gavin to defend us.
Tom Clancy will be missed greatly!
Tell us about yourself! Lifelong reader and passionate pursuer of knowledge. I love Audible because I never have to stop reading.
I finished this listen just before Clancy's death. His passing took me back 30 years to The Hunt for Red October. What set him apart as an author was the depth of his research, and his respect for his reader, and his country. He will be missed. I thought Threat Vector the best I had listened to in the last decade. Listen. You will not be disappointed. The future of modern warfare could not be made clearer.
Clancy and Greaney are great writers and I cannot tell you not to buy this book. It was good but not great. I felt all the small details made the book too long, at times causing me to lose interest. If you can get it on sale all the better. Would I purchase it at full price, I don't think so.
