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 LINE IMPOSSIBLE TO FOLLOW. I'M HALF WAY THROUGH BOOK AND ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT I HAVE LEARNED ABOUT MALWARE VIRUS WHICH IS GREAT BUT I WAS EXPECTING TO HEAR AN EXCITING "RYAN" NOVEL. DON'T THINK I WILL BOTHER HEARING REST OF THE BOOK. JUST TOO BORING.
NO, JUST WON'T SPEND MONEY AND TIME ON ANYTHING MORE WRITTEN BY TOM CLANCY
NOTHING. HIS PERFORMANCE WAS FINE, IT WAS ONLY THE BOOK THAT WAS AWLFUL.
LEARNED ABOUT MALWARE VIRUS
Very good. Love the story
Developed like one side was close to supreme then it all fell apart way too quick
Keep me in touch with characters.
Interwoven thoughtout reboot
John Clark - because he is John Clark
thought provoking cyber angle
After all these years, we still wait for the next one, hurry
Lou D.P.'s narration is what I liked best: top flight, as alsways, with great characterizations. I least liked, actually disliked, the neo-con right wing bent of the marque author that always percolates through the main characters often snotty, William-F.-Buckley comments about those that don't think just like them.
It had a beginning, middle and end
Just about everything.
Two things: re-think giving book narration a try and stop paying money/credits for Tom Clancy books (can you say library?).
China & cybersecurity are problems for the US, as clearly eloquent & gripping in this book.
Cyberwar in stealth.
Lou Diamond phillips has a great voice and does a great job telling a story
Jack Ryan Jr.
enough differentiation in character voices to identify each character
Tom Clancy at his finest, Threat Vector is packed with action and technical detail that allows the reader to truly experience the moment.
I don't know how much Mark Greaney actually had to do with this book but I suspect quite a bit. This is by far the best Tom Clancy in many, many years. I've been disappointed with the last couple of Clancy efforts and was torn as to whether or not to read this book. But having read The Gray Man series by Greaney (which is terrific!) I gave this one a chance... and am GLAD I did! Excellent story and Excellent performance by Lou Diamond Phillips!
After years of mediocre books this is the first that equals of his early works. The cyber war scenario feels real and is well developed. Even the Chinese threat is developed enough to be believable. The final action scenes with Jack Jr. are a little far fetched but no more so than Jack Sr.'s fights on a nuclear sub. Good fast read.
