Publisher's Summary

The newest electrifying thriller in the #1 New York Times–bestselling series has President Jack Ryan and his allies facing a treacherous foe threatening to unleash chaos around the globe. . . .

When Russian President Valeri Volodin's ambitions are foiled in Dagestan, he faces a difficult choice. The oligarchs who support him expect a constant flow of graft, but with energy prices cratering, the Russian economy sputters to a virtual halt. Unable to grow the Russian market at home, his hold on power relies on expansion abroad—a plan that has been thwarted by the United States in the past. But this time Volodin has determined that an indirect approach is the best. A floating natural gas facility in Lithuania is blown up. A Venezuelan prosecutor is assassinated. A devastating attack on a Russian troop train kills dozens. A chaotic world is the best camouflage for a series of seemingly unrelated attacks.

Only one man recognizes an ominous pattern in the reports of terror from around the globe. U.S. President Jack Ryan sees a guiding hand in the worldwide chaos, but before he can act he needs proof.

    "Good old Russia"

    No matter who the writer is Russia is always the perfect adversary in Tom Clancy novels. Tom Clancy books are best when the story is pertinent to current events. This one is perfect. Well written, Technically accurate and disturbingly possible.

    "Both Jack Ryans Continue"

    Mark Greaney has done an admirable job of continuing Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan characters as well as continuing with the political/military technical details that made Tom Clancy famous. In addition, the plot carrying these characters and details was well-crafted and intriguing. Some readers/listeners may object to the length and pace of this novel ... but both the length and pace were typical of Clancy's work. Frankly, I enjoyed both.

    As always, Scott Brick brings the characters, both good and bad, to life.

    If you have liked Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney's guardianship of the Jack Ryan saga, you'll enjoy Commander-in-Chief.

    "This one will be a Jack Ryan classic!"

    The series just keeps getting better and better! Mark Greaney did a fantastic job filling Clancy's shoes in this thriller! The plot, ripped out of current headlines - who knew - left me wishing Jack Ryan was president and the Campus was out there to straighten things out! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    "Fantastic"

    One of the best novels I've heard in a long time. Using similar historical events with real life historical events was amazing. The authors ability to see where the current idea of social justice compared to real world application of justice was wonderful. Very well done.

    "As usual follow the $$$$"

    I am not a big Scott Brick fan, but I thought he turned a really well done performance !
    Story written by Greaney was well written, certainly done better than the other Tom Clancy wannabes.
    I for one really consider it a bonus when Jack Sr, Jr, John Clark, Ding, Jr's cousin are in the cast of characters.
    Greaney kept the plot moving, allowed a love interest with out getting sloppy, and the young in cheek humor, along with the verbal banter really made for a good page turning book.
    Russian greed, and treachery is exploited throughout the book, and when certain characters die the touch of greed and deception are passed on to the next talking head.
    I know the book is long but it moves right on along, and all of my favorite characters are true to form, just getting older.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    Story
    "Great novel!"

    Action? Suspense? This novel has it all! To set it up the president of Russia plans to invade Lithuania and President Jack Ryan tries to get NATO to honor its commitment to defend all member states against aggression. This is a complex novel with lots of different events occurring at the same time. 67 tear old John Clark plays a major role as does Jack Jr. and his cousin as well as Domingo Chavez. The main character in this book is President Jack Ryan, not Jack Jr.

    Mark Greaney has already established himself is one of the very best espionage thriller writers. I believe this is his best book. Scott Brick is absolutely brilliant as narrator.

    VERY, VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

    "Best Story overall for Mark Greaney following Clancy."

    This was developed so good by the author. I think he has grown into a great story teller like his mentor Clancy.

    Scott Brick is an excellent narrator, but how did he mispronounce 'salon' as saloon of the Wild West!!! Please fix this detraction.

    By all accounts, this book surpassed all of Mark Greaney's books in the Tom Clancy's series. Thank you for a good read.

    "Very relevant to today's geopolitical environment"

    Highly recommended.

    I generally think of these types of books as smut for men and usually don't acknowledge reading them except to guys who like to read this type of smut. Now that I am outed, I have to admit I really enjoyed this book. Realistic military tech, geopolitics along with man pandering was a great recipe for Clancy especially his early books and I felt that recipe worked very well in this book. I used to know the military tech much better than I do now. I found some of the military tech implications to be highly troubling and this will probably spur some research during my spare time. The geopolitical and energy piece of this I am better acquainted with and found the scenarios to be very relevant today and very interesting. The man pandering stuff has changed and I can say even though I am certainly older school and probably somewhere between Jack Jr and Clark, I like the Jack Jr character and look forward to seeing what the next books bring.

    Geopolitics, military tech, and man smut. Great formula that worked well for me in this book. That I actually will do some research on real issues as a result of reading it a big bonus and probably why I outed myself and wrote the review.

    "Terrible narrator ruins this audiobook"

    For the life of me, I don't know why they keep using Scott Brick as the narrator for the Tom Clancy novels. He is horrible. He has near zero ability for voice characterizations. All the characters sound alike. And his acting has all the range of a defective air soft gun. Lou Diamond Philips, on the other hand, is excellent as a Tom Clancy narrator. Why not continue to use him? This is the last audiobook I get with Brick as narrator.
