Publisher Description

Debt of Honor ends as Jack Ryan is confirmed vice president minutes before a mammoth act of terrorism kills the President, most of his cabinet, all but a few members of Congress, the entire Supreme Court and all of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Suddenly Ryan is President, which is where Executive Orders begins.

Ryan's responsibilities crush in on him. Where should he begin? He must calm a nation, pacify world leaders, arrange a massive funeral -- while he rebuilds a government as quickly as possible. But that's not all. Enemies abroad and at home see opportunities, and they'll soon present President Ryan with an unimaginable crisis. How will he tackle his greatest challenge ever?

    " Jack Ryan becomes President of the US following a terrorist bombing. Written pre 9/11 it is a mixture of unbelievable prescient description of troubles in the middle east combined with descriptions of dated technology. "

    " Starts well and ends terribly. Mostly interesting as a frightening study of the insanities of right wing America. This book foretells many of the disorders of the W. Bush administration. Only die-hard Clancy fans should consider it. One of his worst in my opinion. "

    " Great suspense with Jack Ryan as POTUS. Very, very LONG with 874 Pages especially for a slow reader like me. "

    " Too much ebola description. When I was reading this I was working two jobs and could only read while eating. After the (30th?) description, I finally lost my stomach for the story. And I have a strong stomach. As always the action was fine, but I couldn't finish it. "

    " Quite possibly my favorite book of all time. Jack Ryan becomes President and gives the orders. "
