Publisher's Summary

Marine officer. CIA analyst. President. Jack Ryan has devoted his life to protecting the United States. What if this time, he can't? President Ryan and the Campus return in the latest entry in Tom Clancy's #1 New York Times-bestselling series.

Freedom may have finally arrived in Iran. As protests break out across the country, the media rejoices over the so-called Persian Spring. Western leaders are ecstatic. Members of Congress and the Cabinet clamor to back the rebels. Only President Jack Ryan remains wary.

Meanwhile, he has plenty to handle at home. A deadly strain of flu is ravaging the United States as spring floods decimate the Southeast. An unethical senator wants to bring down the Ryan presidency and is willing to lean on fabricated bot-planted stories to do it.

But the scariest story is the most closely guarded one. Two Russian nuclear missiles have been hijacked. The Campus gets their first break when Jack Junior connects with a rogue Russian intelligence officer in Afghanistan--only to be abducted soon after arriving. John Clark and the rest of the Campus team race to track the missiles and rescue their colleague.

As sensationalized stories spin out of control and the stolen missiles remain out of reach, President Ryan's toughest challenge emerges: How do you meet an enemy head on, when he won't even show you his face?

There's a whole lot going on here...

I think Marc Cameron has done a really good job with this book. I have previously not been a fan of his and had returned the last Jack Ryan book he had written. I hesitated with this one but figured what the hey? If I don't like it I can always return this one too. I just don't like returning books. Anyway, this time I am so very glad I decided to buy the book! I think the plot is a little over the top with the rash of bad luck and number of conspiracies all going in at the same time. One thing is certain, no reader could possibly say there wasn't enough going on. There is SOOO much happening you really need to pay attention or you might miss something important. I had to rewind a few times. There is action, strategizing, real "fake news", Russians fishing in toxic waters,torturing people and acting all sorts of stereotypes, a deadly viruses, public manipulation and a two missing Russian missiles! Whew...
Cameron deserves five stars just for getting this all in one book and having it all make sense!
Scott Brick is Scott Brick. Need I say more!
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATIONS.

Great espionage thriller!

Oath of Office includes almost all of Tom Clancy's Ryan series characters from Jack Ryan Sr, to Jack Ryan Jr. to Cathy Ryan to John Clark to Dingo Chavez to Mary Pat Foley to Arnie van Damm to Dom Caruso to Adara Sherman. Both Ryan Sr., as President, and Ryan Jr. as covert agent play protagonist roles in this outstanding espionage thriller. The novel deals with situations ripped from the headlines including Iran's nuclear ambitions and Russia's generally bad behavior. OATH OF OFFICE is author Marc Cameron's second consecutive Jack Ryan novel. Both Oath of Office and Power and Empire are superb. Author Cameron seems to have abandoned novels (at least for now) in his outstanding Jericho Quinn series. Cameron joins the great Mark Greaney as the best writers in the series ever (both are better than Clancy).

Mike Maden has taken over the associated four novel Jack Ryan Jr. series and is doing very well. Hopefully, Grant Blackwood will write no more novels in either series.

What can one say about the narration of Scott Brick except he is stellar as usual?

If you like espionage thrillers Oath of Office is highly recommended.

Clancy's legacy continues.

The new author to take over from the late Tom Clancy does a fine job, the narration is also excellent. A compelling storyline, with an idea that is unlikely, and yet possible. 10/10.

Exciting Read

This is a continuation of the Jack Ryan Series started by Tom Clancy. This is March Cameron’s second book in the series.

The book is well written. The story twists and turns and the suspense builds throughout the story. There are multiple plots and subplots along with many characters in the Clancy tradition. Jack Ryan is president and Russia, along with Iran is giving him problems. If you are looking for a good get-away-from-it-all book, this is it.

The book is fourteen hours nineteen minutes. Scott Brick does a great job narrating the story. Brick has won over fifty Earphone Awards and five Audie Awards. He also was named Publisher Weekly’s Narrator of the Year and the Audiofile Magazine’s Golden Voice Award.

Tom Clancy would be Unimpressed.

out of all the books in this series , this is not that good. Im a Truck Driver who's SPENDING a lot of time in my semi truck, Just driving. Listen to do many Tom Clancy books, I can usually follow them just fine. This one has To much going on and was to short for The Jack Ryan Jr. Series. He did ok , unlike last Book . Now as a follow up to that , this don't compare. The "Fake News" and Russia media meddling was not well thought out for me. I don't like Bashing Clancy's Books but sorry book 19 , well I'm not impressed. Hopefully they'll have a
RE-DO and Mark Grainy Will do the next one , Hes brought this series to life and caught me even time. His Grey Man Series is Outstanding. Authors like him are whom should be doing these books. Hey it's just one guy's opinion. Im sorry, but I'll be asking for a REFUND....

Another great Jack Ryan adventure

Tom Clancy Oath of Office is the latest book in the #1 New York Times Best-Selling Jack Ryan series of Thrillers and I am very glad to report that Marc Cameron did a fantastic job writing the new adventure and that Scott Brick delivers another perfect performance.

As you might know, if you follow my reviews, I hate spoilers so, without me giving any of the key plot points away, I will tell you that Jack Ryan is back for another heart stopping adventure! Oh, yeah, and it’s not only Jack, since we have the entire Campus team back in action. The story is great and the plot is strong and very well thought out.

The plot is filled with twists and turns, the action moves at breakneck speeds from the United States to Iran, from Portugal to Russia and after that from Cameroon to Afghanistan and so on.

The story is so good and so brilliantly written that I found myself keeping my breath from time to time… Near the end are some explosive moments, filled with non stop action that will keep you on the edge of your seat… There are guns, terrorists, gadgets, hackers, espionage, tech details about weapons, aircrafts and computers, there are spies, hand to hand combat, hostage rescue missions, helicopters, planes, boats, bombs, politics and lots of fast paced drama…

Beware, once you start reading, you might not want to stop!

Scott Brick is one of the best narrators out there, in an industry full of talented artists, and his contribution to this series makes it even more immersive and highly enjoyable!

The amazing Scott Brick returns once more to the Jack Ryan universe and brings to life old friends. He reads, he acts, he uses his accents in order to help the listener differentiate between the vast variety of characters of different nationalities. At the same time it’s clear that he enjoys the story and has a good time delivering another Stellar performance. Scott changes with ease between President Ryan, Jack Jr., John Clark, Ding, a Russian spy, a sadistic Iranian assassin and many others.

If you are a Tom Clancy / Jack Ryan fan, or just prefer thrillers and espionage, you will absolutely love Tom Clancy Oath of Office. Mr. Cameron is on his second Jack Ryan book, after he took over from the talented Mark Greaney in 2017, but he manages to deliver a great Jack Ryan adventure in the style of its original creator...

Great! Too short! Maybe a little more simple than expected

I enjoy these books. I’ve been looking forward to this book as I am the next. Very entertaining but a little on the short side and maybe a little too simple. This one seemed to be in a hurry. It was light on descriptions and back stories. It’s missing a little of the older books in which there was a deeper mystery that was unraveled at the end. So I’m a little disappointed but still happy to have a new book. Definitely worthy of the time. So enjoy readers. Writers please step it up and thank you! Also thank you Mr Scott Brick. As always it’s a pleasure to listen to your narrative.

Another Good Jack Ryan Novel

A suspenseful Clancy novel with multiple characters and story lines, which somehow all come together to solve an international problem. Jack Ryan Jr and his clandestine group face many obstacles, but manage to save lives and keep the US safe. Scott Brick does his usual excellent job with narration.
I really liked this Clancy novel by Marc Cameron, but my favorite is Clancy novels by Mark Greaney.

Difficult to stop listening

I totally enjoyed the book. Having all of the previous characters that have been incorporated in the story made hearing the book a most pleasurable experience. Scott Brick’s narration was just about perfect.

Great Addition to the franchise

Very good story, the last couple in the series have been flat. Written like Tom Clancy wrote it himself. Hopefully they continue on this path. Scott Britt did a great job as always
