Publisher's Summary

Although his father had been reluctant to become a field operative, Jack Ryan Jr. wants nothing more. Privately training with a seasoned Special Forces drill instructor, he's honing his skills to transition his work within The Campus from intelligence analysis to hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can—even as Jack Ryan Sr. campaigns for re-election as President of the United States.

But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and the personal have just become equally dangerous. A devout enemy of Jack Sr. launches a privately funded vendetta to discredit him by connecting the presidential candidate to a mysterious killing in the past by John Clark, his longtime ally.

A shadowy mercenary team is dispatched to capture the former Navy SEAL. With Clark on the run, it’s up to Jack Ryan Jr., along with Ding Chavez, Dominic Caruso, and the rest of the Campus team, to stop a threat emerging in the Middle East: A corrupt Pakistani general has entered into a deadly pact with a fanatical terrorist to procure nuclear warheads, which can be used to blackmail any world power into submission.

With the breakneck speed and military action scenes that have made him the premier thriller writer of our time, Tom Clancy delivers a novel of high-tech warfare in which the enemy within may be even more devastating than the enemy without.

Take another thrill ride with Jack Ryan.
Play the Jack Ryan Quiz Game to join the team at "The Campus". A passing grade gets you a free preview of the book, along with an interview with narrator Lou Diamond Phillips.

    "Terrible performance speaks so fast I can't unders"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    A better actor to narrate. Better develop characters. I can't understand narrator's words and he has no emotion in his speaking.


    Has Locked On turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Never buy anything narrated by Lou Diamond Phillips.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Please give us a better sample of the narration. I've read most of Tom Clancy's books and this one just doesn't measure up at all.


    Did Locked On inspire you to do anything?

    Check out narrator's past performance and sound.


    Any additional comments?

    I wasted almost $20.00 for a book I will never finish. I feel cheated!

    Story
    ""Mein Kampf" in a fiction book. Exudes hate."

    I read and enjoyed all of the early Clancy books and a number of the later ones. I could not finish this one.

    I consider myself to be an ordinary Democrat. I hold the views that I do because I believe they are what is best for this country. Others may disagree, but I do not consider them to be evil because of it. I try to consider what other people really think about issues, and why. I try to see both sides of issues.

    Judging by this book, Mr. Clancy does not look at political disagreements in the same way. Rather, the book takes political views that resemble mine, then twists them into perverse caricatures that do not match those of anyone I know. It is an old tactic: demonize the people that disagree with you. Charge all of a group, half of the nation, with beliefs that can only be found in the rarest extremists, and if you can't find real extremists that believe something sufficiently despicable, just make something up. Fiction is the perfect tool for that. The writer of "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" could have learned lessons from this book.

    Call me thin skinned if you want, but I felt like the book was exuding hate toward me in very personal way. It was dripping with utter disdain for my views (or really its absurd perversions of my views).

    If I feel the need to experience being despised so vigorously, I can listen to Rush Limbaugh, or I can write something totally evil like "I am against torture" on any number of website forums. I do not need it in a book that I have paid for.

    Story
    "Fox News Thinly Veiled"

    I had to stop this book after a few hours which, for me, is a rare event. I quickly became distracted by the Right Wing talking points not-so carefully hidden within the plot. Characters would spout lines about how Liberals are completely unaware of any Arab threat, or that the economy is being ruined by over-regulation of the oil companies. Foreign affairs and the economy are complex issues that deserve complex exploitation, but all we get here is obvious party rhetoric. If you watch Fox News, then maybe these ideas resonate, but they have little basis in reality.

    After stopping this recording I researched Mr. Clancy and found that he appeared on Fox News after 9/11 and blamed Liberals for that too. If only I had seen that first I could have saved a credit.

    "Blocked Off"
    What would have made Locked On better?

    The only way this story could have been better would be to start over, or don't even write this at all. Now I know why people ask for ratings of less than one star.


    What was most disappointing about Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney ???s story?

    This is not a story, it is uber right wing political propaganda. It is paranoid, stereotypical, and shallow.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was the one where my husband and I decided to shut this off and choose to listen to a real story.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Locked On?

    There is nothing redeeming to keep. It is unfortunate that this was ever written, printed, or spoken.


    Any additional comments?

    Lou Diamond Phillips is a wonderful reader.

    What did you like best about Locked On? What did you like least?

    Expecting special ops story... Got a right wing extremist diatribe, not a fun listen for an independent thinker. Don't mind a sprinkle of politics in stories... But this was extreme. Listened half way, couldn't stomach it.. Deleted.


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

    A+

    Story
    ""TOO MANY CHARACTERS!""
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I'm not sure. There are parts of the book that I enjoyed and parts that I didn't. But I spent too much time trying to remember the characters and how they fit into the plot. It was very frustrating.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Streamline the plot just a bit more. I'm not saying to make it predictable and ordinary, but when readers have to struggle to keep up with too many twists and turns it becomes a chore to finish the book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The action scene at the hotel where Jack Ryan, Jr. is on one of his first real missions. He is tasked with driving the getaway car and guarding the exit of the hotel his team is about to inflltrate to catch a guy involved in some bad business. While his team is getting in place for thier take-down, Jack notices some curious activity going on at the next hotel. Trusting his instincts, he leaves his post for a minute to follow five shady-looking guys until he's able to reognize one of them as a terrorist. He quickly relays this info to his team and they immediately recognize a trap. At the last minute they have to change plans in order to save a group of unarmed surveillance guys that are unaware that they are about to be ambushed by the five guys that Jack Jr. identified.

    "Couldn't stop listening- thoroughly enjoyable"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Locked On to be better than the print version?

    This was the second audio book i have purcahsed and was not disspointed. I listened to it on my walk to work and in the car ride home. I pottered around the house and was able to do chores and make dinner while listening. A great way to tune out. Love it! <br/>Names and acronyms were sometimes hard to reference as you cannot go back and recheck them like you would in a book, but if you have read the books you shouldn't have much trouble. I have missed a few in the series and still found it enjoyable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Lots of characters to get to know, very descriptive, easy to picture and action packed.


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

    I didn't recognise his voice at all, but he was very good, especially with the multitude of characters he had to keep up with.


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

    Yes I finished the whole book in about three days...a mighty feet considering its approx 17 hrs long.

    Ninety percent of the book is A+. Solid Clancy. At the end, the end he pulls Wolfe "Man in Full" style plot twist. What?! Other than that... Great book.

    This was a great book to listen to. It reminded me of Tom Clancy's earlier books. It is well written and you don't want to turn it off.

    The Jack Ryan series has be out there so long, I was curious to see how this book would evolve the characters, especially Jack Jr. It was well worth the credit. LDP does a good job narrating and giving the book additional life.
