Overview

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?

It starts out slow and you get brief periods of action seperated by long periods of slow boring listening. It’s as if the authors sometimes look for stuff to write to fill up space. Towards the end it starts to pickup and becomes a good read. But if you want a book that holds your attention all the way through, this isn’t it.

I was really looking forward to this audiobook and want to be positive in reviewing. I however found this to be among the worst of the recent Tom Clancy books. The plot is pretty linear and at times confusing and for large swathes of the book, seemingly nothing happened. Often I found myself drifting away when listening to the book, which has never happened to me listening to audiobooks before. I actually started looking forward to getting to the end so I can get onto the next book. Overall I think I was just sad that the plot didn’t really offer anything new other than the final ‘twist’ of how a weapon was going to be used. I really hope the standard of writing improves, going forward or I wonder if the Tom Clancy series might be past it’s prime... The oration was great though!
