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?

I enjoyed the story and was entertained throughout. However, I had a couple of issues: 1) the narrator read too slow and a bit over dramatic--so I increased the speed to 1.25 and it was better than normal speed and 2) I don't recall Tom Clancy's characters swearing as much and was disappointed to hear that kind of language used often by Mark Greaney. The story and characters would still be good without a proliferation of such language. I think the author caved into popular culture. The downside is that I would not recommend this to my kids (even the older ones) because I don't want this to be he example for them.
The first half of this book was very slow, drawn out and much to heavy with details.
The second half of the story was it's redemption.
Another good Tom Clancy book. This book is a little different with the main characters but stand up to any of the other Campus series books.
I am beginning my Audiobook experience, and this is only the second I have listened to. However, I have read several Tom Clancy books, and as usual, this one did not disappoint. Twists and turns all the way through.
Very much so. Just when you think you know what is going to happen, a curveball gets thrown at you.
I have not.
I don't want to ruin it for anyone, so I will keep that one to myself :)
this story features Dominic Caruso as the main character. The campus is not involved very much in this book however it is very very good.
This is the first audiobook that I've gotten from Audible. I'm a Tom Clancy fan and I wanted to pick up the work after his death. Mark Greany did a great job with this work and the narration was excellent for driving. Very pleased.
A little disjointed but an entertaining read. I would recommend this book. I powered through the end when the action really started.
