Publisher's Summary

Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

Meanwhile, Chinese cyber-warfare experts have launched a devastating attack on American infrastructure. It's a new combat arena, but it’s every bit as deadly as any that has gone before. Jack Ryan, Jr., and his colleagues at the Campus may be just the wild card that his father needs to stack the deck. There's just one problem: someone knows about the off-the-books intelligence agency and threatens to blow their cover sky high.

    Story
    "Always an education!"

    When I first started reading Clancey I read a review of his research and ability to take public information to produce a dead-on story very close to the truth. Think his insight was deemed uncanny. Sometimes I get very uncomfortable reading him because I find myself running smack-dab into a wall of reality. This is no different as all or most of the book has been reflected in the news. China hacks into "unhackable" agencies with top level security. It's happening now. That's the tip of the iceburg.

    Mark Greaney is one of my favorites and I think he partners well with Clancey.

    And what a wonderful narrator Lou Diamond Phillips is. He pulls it all together with that melodious voice and command of accents.

    For me, a top notch listen!

    Story
    "Best Clancy or Greaney book yet."
    Any additional comments?

    I like several books by Clancy and Greaney seperately or together. But this had just the right mix of technical details, characterization, action, Political plausibility, etc that just kept me up at night listening, laughing, shouting and cussing. The cyber war aspects made this really interesting. This is one of my favorite books of all time. I don't need a depressing book where the bad guys kill your heroes, or clowns that are easily defeated. This had high stakes, but enough distance to the killing to keep from being overwhelming. ( I don't know your threshold, but some Clancy books are just a little too much for me.)

    Story
    "Loved this book!"
    If you could sum up Threat Vector in three words, what would they be?

    I wanted more


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot/story


    Which character – as performed by Lou Diamond Phillips – was your favorite?

    Adam Yeo


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Breaking news...


    Any additional comments?

    I did not want this story to end. To me, Clancy's characters are not boilerplate novel characters like so many authors out there. Like a lot of Clancy, this story could or will be going on in the near future. Worth the time and money. This would make a great summertime read/listen.

    Story
    "Very well done. Maybe a little too real"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended this book to several of my friends. I finished this book a couple of days before the news became very heavy with stories of the Chinese hacking the United States of America computing infrastructure. It is a case of going, WOW this could really happen and are we really prepared for the threats that are coming.


    What does Lou Diamond Phillips bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Lou Diamond Phillips does a great job of bringing out the emotion of the moment and bringing the characters to life. He has become one of my favorite readers.


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

    If I could have listened to this book in one sitting I would have. As it was I ended up listening on my ride to work and then continuing to listen while I was sitting at my desk doing my work.

    Story
    "The Ryan Series Repeats History"
    What made the experience of listening to Threat Vector the most enjoyable?

    Lou Diamond Phillips did an outstanding job. Though there is only so many conflicts that Jack Ryan can save the US from. And it was much more exciting the first time around.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I believe he took the ending from Sum of all Fears but put another enemy that hasn't yet learned to respect the Re Elected Jack Ryan.

    Story
    "Typical Clancy"
    Would you listen to Threat Vector again? Why?

    I can't stop listening to this book, I listen in the car and find myself sitting in the car after I reach my destination so engrossed in the story I can't get out of the car.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love how Clancy builds the details of a story and then suprises you with a crash of action before moving on.
