It is fall. CIA analyst Jack Ryan, historian and former Marine, is vacationing in London with his wife and young daughter. Suddenly, right before his eyes, a terrorist group launches its deadly attack. Instinctively, he dives forward to break it up, and is shot. It is not until he wakes up in the hospital that he learns whose lives he has saved -- the Duke and Duchess of Kent. By his impulsive act, he has gained both the gratitude of a nation and the enmity of its most dangerous men -- men who do not sit on their hate. Patriot Games is a prequel to The Hunt for Red October and has all the excitement and energy of Clancy's famous first book. Download and start listening now!

    " This was my first Clancy read. Although there is a lot of language, I was hooked with the story. I like Jack Ryan as a character and I think I will read the rest of the series. There are so many intense parts of the book I thought I was reaching the main climax halfway through the book. "
