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.

I liked that it dealt with current issues regarding computer security and the Chinese threat.
Lou Diamond Phillips does another great job of making the characters come alive.

clark faking the heart attack?

A truly interestering techo-thriller follow up to Clancy"s last book. It really gets you into the plot and does a masterful job of weaving an outstanding plot into what could quickly become real life. I have been a Tom Clancy fan since the Hunt For Red October and this one did not let me down. I can't wait for the next one. Gonna miss Melanie- Hope she comes back. The Chi-coms get what is coming to them. lou Diamond Phillips is excellent .
Clancy has continued to improve with age and this is another example. Whereas many of his earlier books set the stage and background in exhausting detail for 150-200 pages before any action started, this book is an example of the change made beginning with Rainbow Six where some of the action starts right up front. Great book and gets harder and harder to put down as the story progresses. This is continuing along those lines with our familiar story and I am eagerly looking forward to the next addition.

Threat Vector (TV) was a typical Tom Clancy genre novel so I felt secure that I was about to have a good read. The concept was very timely and cutting edge, with a realistic scenario albeit a little far-fetched that technology has really made it that far. The PRC communist government were portrayed in a bad light, but in this novel they were the enemies. After I read this novel i heard all kinds of concepts from it being used in US Congress even so far as Obama's State of the Union Address. Certainly, a cyberthreat to take down GPS satellites and parts of the internet would have a major impact on the USA economy, and probably also, the military.
Geeks watch out, Uncle Sam still packs a punch.
Allowing that it is a typical Clancy novel, it is imperfect but quite a fun read. Escapist. I went back and updated all my antivirus programs.
Fast Action and intrigue from Jack Ryan . True to life story and execution of the plot add to the readability.
Jack is everyman who falls into difficult situations and uses everything at his disposal to rectify matters.
Makes one wonder if the Super Bowl Lights Out episode was more than a simple power outage.
Based out of Bangalore and working for a MNC financial services Organization as head of IT infrastructure. Have been a audible member for the last three years.
A reality today
I would compare this to any book on cyber security
It is gripping but a bit too long to listen at one go
Felt it was bit too lengthy
