A newly belligerent Chinese government leaves US President Jack Ryan with only a few desperate options in this continuation of the #1 New York Times bestselling Tom Clancy series.

Jack Ryan is dealing with an aggressive challenge from the Chinese government. Pawns are being moved around a global chessboard: an attack on an oil platform in Africa, a terrorist strike on an American destroyer and a storm tossed American spy ship that may fall into Chinese hands. It seems that President Zhao is determined to limit Ryan's choices in the upcoming G20 negotiations.

But there are hints that there's even more going on behind the scenes. A routine traffic stop in rural Texas leads to a shocking discovery—a link to a Chinese spy who may have intelligence that lays bare an unexpected revelation. John Clark and the members of the Campus are in close pursuit, but can they get the information in time?

    Tom Clancy always provided details woven into his stories and I liked it. This book has too many details which I consider as Minutia. Very boring reading at times. Not enough Jack Jr action. Next time a new book comes out I’ll read the first few chapters to see if it is better written before I buy . I have every Tom Clancy Book in every series he had written. However, if his style is compromised again, you’ve lost me as a reader.

    Very good— almost as good as Clancy.
  • Disappointing

    By Gary43
    Tom Clancy continues to slip as the one-time premier spy thriller author. This is a really, really boring book.
  • Skipped more pages than ever

    I am a huge fan of the Jake Ryan novels, even after the passing of the great Tom Clancy, but I have skipped more pages in this novel due to the trivial blandness of the authors methodical descriptive prose is beyond anything I have ever experienced before. His knowledge of the characters and dialogue are spot on, however, his descriptive sequences are worse than reading about paint drying on a wall. This novel is a great 150 Page read, if you can skip all of the useless drivel than the author throws at you. Tom could draw out sequences of events, but it was an educational waste of description. This is simply a waste of time. The story is good. Characters are good. It could have been told in 1/4 of the pages though. Sorry.

  • Pathetic

    By Sus L Scrofa
    Another cranked out novel, implausible, with a contrived, simplistic finale
  • Cameron is a Dud

    By kc75070
    this was the worst Clancy ‘franchise’ book yet!! Cameron understands nothing about pace; plot development…..
  • Sorry to say

    By Bubbaks
    This is not the kind of subject matter( child slavery) that I like to read in my spy story.
  • One of the best!

    By SBonner
    Action everywhere, highly recommended!
  • Worthy of the Clancy name

    This was the first book in a long while that lives up to a Clancy novel. Cliff hangers at the end of chapters and multiple plot lines were very good. Good to see John Clark get a major part.
