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.

    "Keeps you listening"

    Clancy and Phillips make a good team. Phillips doesn't have the voice ranges some of the other readers have when making characters come to life. He does make the story sound as if the main character is telling you what happened. Long story short, it's worth the listen...

    "Serviceable Clancy"

    You know how Clancy books (most books) go; someone is attacking the US, it looks bad, gets worse, the tide turns, the good guys win with only minor injuries via displays of brilliance and bravery. Jack Ryan and progeny come out shining like a rose.

    Knowing that going in, this book is serviceable, but not exceptional. Good plot line, fun locations, reasonable action, characters you know and love. Better for old time Clancy fans than for newbies trying their first (start with Patriot Games, or Without Remorse).

    Story
    "Clancy and Greaney are a good duo"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Threat Vector to be better than the print version?

    I am addicted to audio and seldom purchase anything in print.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I don't have one. After the release of the Teeth of the Tiger with a new set of characters Tom Clancy has breahed new life in his books.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I rarely have favorite scenes and usually view a book after I have completed it and able to absorb the total content.


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

    I do not have one after all the movies made from his books they speak for themselves.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope he continues to write with Mark Greaney and would recommend to anyone who has not listened to Mark's books to purchase one they will not be disappointed.

    Story
    "Diamond brilliant reading Clancy Classic"
    What made the experience of listening to Threat Vector the most enjoyable?

    This was a true Clancy novel. The story line of Jack Jr. is much more comfortable than previous novels.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Plot was always changing but believable.


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

    Maybe it is from watching Phillips on the Military Channel but he seemed to be perfect fit.


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

    suspenseful


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the next one.

    "tough listen"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    So many sentence repeats, the narrator sounded like a comedian with a very distinctive, dry delivery. Cannot remember his name, kept thinking about this throughout the story. His other reads don't seem to affect me the same way

    "Absolutely HORRIBLE Naration"
    What did you like best about Threat Vector? What did you like least?

    Did not finish


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney ? Why or why not?

    Yes, as long as the narration is improved


    What didn’t you like about Lou Diamond Phillips’s performance?

    His breathing during the narration ruins the book. I kept wondering when the next intake of breath would occur which over-powered my interest in the book. I put it away for another day, possibly, and will seriously reconsider listening to any book that he narrates.


    Was Threat Vector worth the listening time?

    Did not finish.

    "Clancy Delivers Again!"

    Really interesting story. Great insights about cyber threats to US security. As always, well researched and presented. Reader is good, not great.

    "Completely serious- try listening at 0.5 speed!"

    When I first started listening to Threat Vector, I almost gave up immediately due to how fast the reading was. Then I tried listening at half speed. It's a little odd getting used to it for about 3-5 minutes, then, at least for me, it became totally listenable. Give it a try! About halfway through and loving the book so far! New to Clancy and very happy; I'm always excited to learn about good authors : )

    Story
    "Tom Clancy is Back!"

    A page-turning (if not listening to the audio version, of course), believable thread that you can't stop listening to. In true Tom Clancy form, Threat Vector is filled with interesting characters, complex subjects which are explained in detail, and exciting action scenes that you hope will one day make it to the big screen. I had recently been turned off by some of Clancy's later work, however this book brought back some of the Tom Clancy of old.

    Lou Diamond Phillips gives the best performance of any audio book I have listened to. For the first time, I have sought out other books based solely on the narrator. It was almost like having an ensemble cast with his various feelings and accents. Outstanding!

    If you are looking for an adventure to listen to during drive time, this one will make the time fly by. You may find yourself parked in the garage to see what happens next.

    "Cyberattack"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Threat Vector to be better than the print version?

    I have only read the first Jack Jr book. The rest have been audible and great


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

    Does a creditable job with all the characters.


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

    A great listen. Took two sessions to finish it.


    Any additional comments?

    The cyber attack lacked the detail of some of Clancy's previous technical descriptions. However it had at the same time all the anomalies of a cyber attack and like horror pictures of old was scary because of what you didn't see
