One of Tom Clancy's most storied characters, Dominic Caruso, is the only one who can stop America's secrets from falling into enemy hands in this blockbuster new novel written by Clancy's longtime coauthor.
Over the course of three decades, Tom Clancy created a world alive with prescient action and remarkable individuals. In Tom Clancy Support and Defend, Dominic Caruso is presented with the deadliest challenge of his career.
Dominic Caruso. Nephew of President Jack Ryan. FBI agent and operator for The Campus, a top secret intelligence agency that works off the books for the U.S. government. Already scarred by the death of his brother, Caruso is devastated when he can't save a friend and his family from a terrorist attack.
Ethan Ross was a mid-level staffer for the National Security Council. Now he's a wanted fugitive on the run with a microdrive that contains enough information to wreck American intelligence efforts around the world. The CIA is desperate to get the drive back, but so are the Russians and various terrorist groups all of whom are closer to catching the fugitive. Only Caruso stands in their way, but can he succeed without the aid of his Campus colleagues?

Loved it. The usual international intrigue, excitement and globe-trotting you'd expect from Clancy. I really appreciated that the narrator didn't attempt to use a "goofy falsetto" for the female characters. Much better the way he did it.
The story started a little slow as the players were introduced & developed. Even so, I enjoyed the novel. The pace & intensity definitely picked up as the store line progressed.
Overall, very enjoyable, although not my favorite of Clancy's works.
I enjoyed the book, but the narrator was exceedingly dramatic in every situation, even the lighthearted ones. It detracted from the book. Bring back Lou Diamond Phillips.
Please spay/neuter your pets! Adopt your next pet from your local shelter/rescue group!
Scott Brick comes over a bit melodramatic in his presentation but he can be listened to. Not the best in the series but readable. Clancy himself is sorely missed!
Enjoyed listening to this. Love the way the story develops.
The ending was fantastic,
Filled in the story for me as I had missed this somehow along the way.
A action packed story and a neat look into the character of one of the founding operators of the Campus. Greaney continues to deliver solid, compelling characters and stories.
Too many bull shit side stories. Clsncy should be embarrassed, Excessive details
Ended chap 8 !
