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 spend about 55 hours a week driving and really enjoy having a good book to pass the miles.
I have really enjoyed Tom Clancy's last three collaborations. The new generation of characters blends well with the old timers. Mark Greaney is a good stand alone action thriller author as well. If you have enjoyed Tom Clancy's cold war era thrillers these books won't disappoint. When you've read these new stories try out Greaney's Gray Man series they are also hard to put down. I was a little put off by Phillips narration as it is a little monotone but he is by no means the worst I've heard and it doesn't hurt the story at all.
I have been listening to audiobooks when I commuted more than an hour to work. I enjoy fiction mostly. I can't put down a good classic.
Wonderful book. I could not stop listening. Every word spoken was captivating. My favorite character was Jack Jr.
I can't say, the story may be good, but see the headline
Not sure who I would have cast, but if a listener has the problem I have.... listening to a narrator inhale at the start of every sentence... and it puts them off.... I can't recommend listening to the book. Read it in print
No, couldn't get past the sound of LDP inhaling
As much as I respect and enjoy LDP as an actor, I will never "buy" another book with him as the narrator.
If it had actually been written by Clancy.
Greaney is not Clancy. He does not write with the same detail nor the same in depth, accurate and researched details. I didn't even finish the book. It was rushing towards an ending that was not plausible. The detail of a Clancy book was not there.
Lou does well.
Lou Diamond Phillips.
Last Clancy and anyone collaboration I will buy.
I'm a guy. I like books about war and sci-fi. I listen to 2 or 3 books a week.
The latest story of the Ryan family exploits delivers once again! Lou Diamond is the perfect reader for the modern Clancy novel. This story is modern and topical for today's cutting edge military and diplomatic subjects! A must read!!
...this book gave me a thrill just like his earlier works. Lots of action. Highly recommended!
Threat Vector is in the top 5% of audio books.
Hard to say! Jack Ryan and John Clark are ranking the same. Both are a hero and like a cat they have many lives.
Trash's dog fight!
audio books are Theater of the Mind when done right. They lift words from a page written by an author and transport you into another world
The way Tom Clancy can tell a story from using his classic story telling from the cold war days and bring that right up to the modern age to spin a masterful suspense filled story that will have you on the edge of your sit.
It still is John Clark as he is now in his 60's and he is still as bad ass as ever. The whole team of these characters just blow your mind.
if I had to pick one it would be when John Clark shows up at his office and the bad guys are there. Masterful classic Tom Clancy story telling and made my mouth fall open.
It made me cheer and think of what a great country I live in knowing there are real life people that really would or do do the things Tom Clancy writes about. Freedom in real life is not Free it comes with a high cost and Tom I think uses his Characters to relate that to all of us.
If you like Tom Clancy you will love this book so much, if you haven't given Tom a try you should listen to this book you will love it if you love action, suspense and mystery. Lou Diamond Phillip does an amazing job reading these books. I hope He will be reading all of these books from now on. The last couple he has done have be wonderfully done.
Yes, the story is good, but just too much description of every last detail in every scene... As since his 2nd book, Clancy just never does cut enough out...
