Threat Vector | [Tom Clancy, Mark Greaney]

Threat Vector

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.

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
    "Intricate weave of many heroes."
    Would you listen to Threat Vector again? Why?

    Threat Vector transitions Jack Ryan Jr. into his father's former role without much difficulty. Mr. Clancy did his homework and appears to understand what is a very plausible attack of the United States by a very likely enemy. I had to hear more right up until the book ended.


    What other book might you compare Threat Vector to and why?

    Threat Vector was similar to Silver Tower written by Dale Brown in 1988. An action thriller based on little thought about but current and applicable events.


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

    This book impressed me. I laughed out loud at times and at other times I wanted to cry. I wanted to tell Jack and Dingo what I knew from other chapters of the book. I got involved and caught up in the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Everyone must read this great book.

    Would you listen to Threat Vector again? Why?

    Great listen - I love those tech related plots - makes you think about things. I was on the edge of my seat (so to speak) through the whole thing.

    "Riveting"

    The book kept my attention from beginning to end. Lou Diamond Phillips rendered each character uniquely. The storyline was not canned at all and it did not end as I thought it might.

    Story
    "Typical Clancy"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Typical Clancy. Spot on and extremely well written. As usual, there are twists and turns.

    I appreciate Clancy for his technical knowledge. He does not miss the details like everyone else. You get the feeling that he has actually studied, or used, the devices he writes about instead of using typical literary "beliefs".


    What about Lou Diamond Phillips’s performance did you like?

    Believable, voices are well done.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    Story
    "The old Clancy book is back"
    Would you listen to Threat Vector again? Why?

    Threat Vector is a very contemporary story. Cyber warfare risks are very disturbing. The potential threats from a non-middle eastern government are thought provoking.

    The characters are engaging even if they are the "old gang".

    "Threat Vector is captivating"
    If you could sum up Threat Vector in three words, what would they be?

    holds your attention


    What other book might you compare Threat Vector to and why?

    I've listened to everyone of the Jack Ryan series and this one holds your attention as well or better than any before. Tom Clancy along with Mark Greaney at their very best!


    Have you listened to any of Lou Diamond Phillips’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He is a wonderful reader - I've listened to many of the books he has read and this one is every bit as good as any before, maybe better.


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

    No real extreme reaction just hard to turn off.


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to books on my drive to and from work and was hard pressed to turn it off once I got to my destination. Just really held you attention from the opening sentence to the very end.
