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.

    Excellent narration and performance. Compelling story. Near-perfect pacing. Highly recommended, and the best of the first three "Campus" books.

    "Did not disappoint "

    I love all the old characters in their new roles and the addition of Jack Jr in the mix. Fast moving, reckless, and fun. Listened as audiobook and didn't want to get out of the car!!

    "I thought this was a great read!"

    I saw some reviews citing complaints of inconsistencies in the story line of this book, and ibemoaning some various technical details concerning smo of the firearms mentioned in this story, etc. But to me, if you aren't looking to split hairs, this was a very good story, and with a fairly consistent plot as well. It was easy enough to follow for me, while still being intricate enough to be very compelling. If you are a "buff" of some sort, maybe this is not the one for you. But if you are just looking for a great read with much intrigue, allot of action, and for sure plenty of suspense, this novel shouldl not disappoint you.

    "excellent story / narrator."

    so up to date it is uncanny. Narrator needs to work on pronunciation of French words but the pacing and delivery of this most excellent tale is excellent of course now need to read the next book.

    "Politics"

    Neh. Tom Clancy, before he died, wrote pretty good military thrillers. This title (written by by ghostwriters, no pun meant) is quite heavy on evil liberal foreign born billionaires and heroic right-thinking straight arrow politicians. A few bits of action, but the bloom is off the rose of the Clancy franchise. We listened to something more than half, but the many and tedious characters plus the politics wore us out.

    "just eh"

    Plot was ok but Tom novels are usually heavier on technical information and Greaney really struggles in that aspect. Plus he slams liberals every chance he gets by making them complete idiots and incompetent characters. Lou D Phillips did an excellent job.

    "Another great story"

    As usual Tom Clancy weaves a wonderful nail biting story that will keep you up late at night spell bound with anticipation and expectancy. There is however one small fly in the ointment. Please, please, please, do not under any circumstances allow an American actor to try and do a welsh accent. It didn't work, it made me cringe, it fluctuated between a terrible Scottish accent to an even worse Irish accent, but it never even came close to being a Welsh one. Having said that is is still a great story.

    "Excellent book, really well read!"

    What can I say? For those that follow the Tom Clancy/Jack Ryan universe this is another excellent installment in the already first rate series. A good, solid (and fairly accurate, if the news is to be believed) story about political in-fighting within Pakistan and the US with the usual sub-plots and excellent pace that holds it all together. Lou Diamond Phillips reads the story really and, dodgy Welsh accents aside, does a great job of bringing the characters and situations to life - in short does exactly what I'd expect but never gets in the way of the story.
    Given the length of the story the end feels a little rushed but this really is only a minor gripe that doesn't detract from a really good audio book! Bring on the next one!

    "From start to finish"

    This was a fantastic listen. My first Tom Clancy and I loved it. Lou Diamond Phillips is a superb narrator. He can not do a Welsh accent, at all. Fortunately there were only half a dozen lines requiring it (as such worth a listen for that alone)
    I'm going for Dead or Alive, the book before this in the series next.
    Hope this helps
    :)

    "Great read let down by an abrupt ending"

    I have been a Tom Clancy fan for many years, so when I purchased an Audible membership I thought I would give his latest book a try!

    The story line is excellent with lots of action and intrigue, narrated well by Lou Diamond Philips.

    Unfortunately it is let down by an ending which felt like there was something missing. As with all Clancy novels I was expecting things to come to head for a grand finale, unfortunately I was let down somewhat. The ending was not as grandiose as I would have anticipated from previous Clancy novels.

    Other than the last couple of chapters I found the book an excellent read, however I would recommend listening to the previous Jack Ryan Jnr novel as this follows on chronologically form that.

    "Locked On"

    This is great list, fast pasted action. Lou Diamond Phillips really brings to live werther it be Jack Jr Be coming one of the sharp shooter or the torture of John Clark. This my favourite out of the serie so far and I Can not wait from next.

    "If you like Jack Ryan, you'll love his son"

    Although Locked On is a shorter tale than most of the old Clancy tales, the story races along at breakneck speed and across half the globe. The plot is every bit as complex as one expects from a Clancy story although I miss the incredible technical detail which is always spot accurate.

    It is nice that John Clarke and Ding Chavez have moved forward into these new tales, and one feels a dynasty coming on.

    Lou Diamond Philips does an excellent job as narrator and I looking forward to listening to Dead Or Alive after the holidays.

    The twist at the end which will carry forward until the sequel is well worth waiting for and I actually gasped out loud in a public train compartment "Oh my God!" which drew me a few curious stares.

    Impossible to put on pause.

    I liked it like most of these type of books, but like some of these book it protrays a certain way of handleling things in a right wing mannor and anything from a left leaning points of view is seen as somthing that is stupid, wrong or will bring down a nation
