Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Campus Murder, Inc"
    Where does Threat Vector rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Middle of the pack.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have made the CIA more of the hero than the campus.


    Which character – as performed by Lou Diamond Phillips – was your favorite?

    John Clark


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Who gave the Campus a license to kill? Oh that's right our hero Jack Ryan. I think Jack Ryan's original idea has gone astray. Jack needs to take ownership of the monster he has created and put it to sleep.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm tired of China being the enemy.

    "Couldn't stop listening to it"

    Tom Clancy is back on his game. Lately I have been dissapointed with Clancy's books I felt as if they were ghost written. This book was the best book since " A clear and preset danger" . The cyber war part was excellent. Im an IT professional and felt for the most part the computer technology parts were believable, I even learned some new things.

    This book started out immediately interesting I couldn' t stop listening to it. I felt the narrator did a great job the only thing I didn't like was the voice he used for the Russian.

    Story
    "One of Clancy's best!"
    If you could sum up Threat Vector in three words, what would they be?

    Suspenseful, intriguing, thriller


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All the characters were essential in weaving the story. There was no favorite.


    What does Lou Diamond Phillips bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Lou Diamond Phillips is one of the best narrators of a mystery thriller. His pace, cadence and drama are just right. Would love to hear more books by him.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Modern day warfare for the heart of America.


    Any additional comments?

    Besides "Debt of Honor" this probably is my favorite Clancy book. The Clancy stories are based on what could be, or may be, right now. That is why his books are so interesting as thrillers. The characters evolution from book to book lends to a familiarity that enhances the story line.

    "Scared the **** out of me!"

    Complex story, as usual for Clancy, but I was able to keep up with the plot and the characters. A scary look at the vulnerability of our nation in the internet age.

    What disappointed you about Threat Vector?

    I stopped listening to it after 5 sentences. Why does the reader breath so loud into the mic?

    "Really enjoyed this book"
    Would you listen to Threat Vector again? Why?

    I would listen to it again. Lou Diamond Phillips is great! He really brings it to life. I have no idea how he remembers and changes his voice for so many characters perfectly.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's very up to date and timely, makes you think of the non-obvious threats out there


    Any additional comments?

    I believe this is Lou Diamond Phillips's 3rd Tom Clancy Book. I think it would be cool if he went back starting from "Hunt for Red October" and performed them all!
