Summary:

In the suburbs of Maryland, the firm of Hendley and Associates meanders its way through financial transactions—but its true purpose is to identify and locate terrorist threats, and then deal with them in whatever manner necessary. “The Campus” is always on the lookout for new talent, and its eye happens to light on President John Patrick Ryan’s son: Jack Ryan, Jr. While his father moved through the ranks of the CIA and into the Presidency, Jack Jr. received the benefit of years of life experience in special ops, intelligence analysis, and the way the world really works. Now, the Arab terrorist world and the Colombian drug cartels are about to unite forces, and Jack Jr. must put all he has been taught to good use—or else.

    It was, as someone else said, a bridge from the old to the new. The new direction requires you to suspend reality a little too much of my taste.

    A bit of a disappointment coming off Tom Clancy's "The Bear and The Dragon", but I think this was more meant to be a bridge-book to a post 9/11 era. Just don't let me down again Tommy C!

    This is a fast paced action filled story which is the trademark of Tom Clancy. This book has Jack Ryan Jr following in his fathers' foot steps.

    I'm a long-time Clancy fan, and I read this book a few months ago. I kept picking it up thinking "It has to get better" but it never did. It was tedious and dull, painfully unbelievable, and the writing felt rushed and incomplete. I finally finished the book and sat there wondering two things: 1) why did I waste my time finishing it? and 2) where is the Tom Clancy of his glory days of writing?

    Wow! Fast paced and a thriller from the beginning. The Caruso brothers are awesome as a team. They have great heroic attitudes. The detail regarding intelligence gathering and missions is remarkable. Happy to see the U S A is proactive. Love the descreptive scenes..felt like I was there!

    I do not usually listen to abridged stories but this one worked. It was a little confusing at times as to who was speaking, but I found it pulled me back to listen to more.

    I was bound and determined not to like this book, because I love Clancy's normal characters so much. No Jack Ryan Sr., no Ed & Pat, no John Clark. However, I enjoyed myself listening to this book, despite myself. I was annoyed, yet again, by the fact that it was abridged (abridged books should be banned). If Tom is truly passing the torch from Jack Ryan Sr, to his son and nephews.... this was a very good start.

    I was really surprised that I could enjoy being read to... but while traveling to and from work and going to lunch each day I couldn't wait to get in my car... this story was so suspenseful and exciting from the time I pushed play.. it kept me wanting to drive more... The suspense was incredible and the characters alive and friends of mine... I will definately stay a member to keep up the imagination in my life... Thanks !!!!

    Tom Clancy stories are predicable but they strike the nerve of what we are all thinking.

    This was quite a let down. Although I enjoyed Clancy's early books, I haven't read him in quite a while. I kept waiting for the suspense, the action, the intrigue. When I finally reached the end, I was left with a "is that all there is?" feeling. I wouldn't recommend this one. Listen to some of his earlier works - skip this.
