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
    "Not bad"
    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    This book is a considerable improvement over the previous two installments in the series. Most of the inane political carping is gone, and the story is actually somewhat feasible; the vulnerability of government agencies and their contractors with regards to cyberattacks is a real threat, and Clancy does a very good job at explaining the technology. True, some key plot elements are quite far-fetched (such as bad guys being able to follow a person throughout the city of Washington, by hacking in to any security camera at will), but it's a work of fiction, and in all fairness the technologies described are worlds more realistic than most of the scenarios we see in film and TV.


    Have you listened to any of Lou Diamond Phillips’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    LDP continues the great work he did in the previous two installments of this series.

    "Another Great Tom Clancy book"
    What did you love best about Threat Vector?

    This book has all that we have come to expect from Tom Clancy with a new twist. A journey into cyber warfare. I loved it. It was easy to follow and very accurate. Just like Tom Clancy should be. I am glad to see all the familiar faces again. It doesn't dissappoint

    "fiction comes to reallity"
    Where does Threat Vector rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Classic Clancy novel. This is best of new series with Jack Jr


    What other book might you compare Threat Vector to and why?

    Clancy stand by himself in the attention to detail he gives in his books. If like Vince Flynn you should like Clancy's Threat Vector. The pace is little more deliberate but the payoff at is worth it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Best secene is when Clark visit the campus after retiring with Melody

    "Suprising, and well written."
    Where does Threat Vector rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I thought that this is the first book in a while from Clancy that I couldnt put down. "Locked On" the book just prior to this was good as well and gave a great background to this story.

    Story
    "A Clancy classic"
    If you could sum up Threat Vector in three words, what would they be?

    A Clancy classic


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack Ryan Sr because he is a true leader - wise, experienced and able to take responsibility.


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

    Amazing! When someone is able to perform multiple characters in a way that makes them real AND makes you forget who the perfomer is? Fantastic.


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

    No, I wanted to draw it out. I was disappointed when it ended. I could have listened to hours more.

    "Good Political Intrigue Story"
    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book. It was full of plots and subplots and always held my interest. Despite the complexity of the story it was easy to follow and was plausible (although plausibility was stretched a bit near the end). I listened to this book while I was working out and it made my workouts go faster as I was always anxious to see what was going to happen. I though this book was a real bargain.

    "Good Story a little unbelievable"
    What made the experience of listening to Threat Vector the most enjoyable?

    Some of the Virus stuff touches on what’s real but this book deviates from real life a little too much in some ways mostly towards the ending.

    "Chillingly realistic thriller"

    If you have wondered how vulnerable the US is to cyber warfare then you want to listen to this book. Lou Diamond Phillips does a great job portraying multiple characters here and delivering a compelling story about China threatening the world in a effort to boost its flagging economy.
    Big ups to LD for his Russian pronunciations. Well done, sir.

    "It's great to have Lou diamond Phillips back !!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Somehow it's like an old friend or the Author reading to me again.

    Great story, in the true Clancy tradition, back together with a great narrator.
