A man named Mohammed sits in a café in Vienna, about to propose a deal to a Colombian. Mohammed has a strong network of agents and sympathizers throughout Europe and the Middle East, and the Colombian has an equally strong drug network throughout America. What if they were to form an alliance, to combine all their assets and connections? The potential for profits would be enormous—and the potential for destruction unimaginable.

In the Brave New World of terrorism—where anybody with a spare AK-47, a knowledge of kitchen chemistry, or simply the will to die can become a player—the old rules no longer apply. No matter what new governmental organizations come into being, the only truly effective ones are those that are quick and agile, free of oversight and restrictions...and outside the system.

Way outside the system.

In a nondescript office building in suburban Maryland, the firm Hendley Associates does a profitable business in stocks, bonds, and international currencies, but its true mission is quite different: to identify and locate terrorist threats, and then deal with them, in whatever manner necessary. Established with the knowledge of President John Patrick Ryan, "the Campus" is always on the lookout for promising new talent, its recruiters scattered throughout the armed forces and government agencies—and three men are about to cross its radar.

The first is Dominic Caruso, a rookie FBI agent, barely a year out of Quantico, whose decisive actions resolve a particularly brutal kidnap/murder case. The second is Caruso's brother, Brian, a Marine captain just back from his first combat action in Afghanistan, and already a man to watch. And the third is their cousin...a young man named Jack Ryan, Jr.

Jack was raised on intrigue. As his father moved through the ranks of the CIA and then into the White House, Jack received a life course in the world and the way it operates from agents, statesmen, analysts, Secret Service men, and black ops specialists such as John Clark and Ding Chavez. He wants to put it all to work now—but when he knocks on the front door of "the Campus," he finds that nothing has prepared him for what he is about to encounter. For it is indeed a different world out there, and in here...and it is about to become far more dangerous.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Pendergraft | 2/19/2014

    " Fun and serious at the same time. Fiction that makes you think. Jack Ryan Jr. is a chip off the old block. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom Landry | 2/11/2014

    " This was a typical Tom Clancy novel. Overall I liked the story but I did have one problem with it. There were none of the key characters from the previous novels in it. They were mentioned many times but they were not actually in the book. It didn't really hurt the story but for me it was like when a movie has many sequels but all of a sudden in one sequel all the characters are different. I also thought the ending was kind of abrupt. I like more of a conclusion at the end of the books I read. Maybe other readers won't be as bothered by those things but I almost gave it two stars because of them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Harrismatte | 2/8/2014

    " A good story but not as good as the Jack Ryan Sr series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne Macdonald | 2/7/2014

    " Tom Clancy always wries a good book. I'm glad that my brother - in - law turned me on to Clancy many years ago. I look forward to reading another one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason Burt | 2/5/2014

    " Really liked this one as I have enjoyed most of Tom Clancy's books. As normal, takes about 300 pages to get into the book, but I love how Clancy always ties the details together into a great story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adit | 1/31/2014

    " cool book, one of those that combines a lot of stranded plots in the beginning.. Clancy uses the sense of an "existing world & crime" in this book.. really enjoyed it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Misspennylane | 1/29/2014

    " Not as good as some, but it sets up Jack, Jr as his next "hero". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Craig | 1/27/2014

    " Good book, back to the older style of Clancy writing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wayne | 1/20/2014

    " This book is AMAZING. Well, that is if you like action and suspense like me. Some parts are kind of greusome but I got over it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ray S | 1/17/2014

    " Book was pretty good. Knowing its part of a series of books I still feel it ended far too abruptly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike Smith | 1/12/2014

    " As usual Tom Clancy delivers a driving thriller with smart, fun characters. But this installment felt more repetitive and less inventive than usual. It also bothered me that everyone kept referring to "the 'Net." It cost Clancy some of his technological expertise cache. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lucy_van_pelt | 12/18/2013

    " I can explain! See this was a mistake. Someone I used to know was meant to get me a Tom Wolfe book but bought this instead as he didn't have a clue about books. I guess I liked him enough to read it. I remember being quite astonished Tom Clancy's books are so popular. Awful macho shite. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Edward Truitt | 12/6/2013

    " not his best by a long shot - but it's still a Clancy.... so kept me up a couple nights until I finished it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Zachrobhan | 11/21/2013

    " Too much profanity. Story was a little formulaic also. The best part is when a mall that I used to work at (Provo Town center) was attacked by terrorists. Luckily in the book the Police stopped it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erik Orrantia | 11/8/2013

    " This was my first Clancy novel, I think, and I really enjoyed it. It turned me on to his other books which I didn't always find as compelling. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Billy | 2/22/2013

    " By far, my least favority of all Clancy's novels. He is still better than most writers, but the story was just too far fetched. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Virgil | 2/11/2013

    " I wish I could give this one negative stars, it is absolutely atrocious. I actually have liked most of Clancy's books, but he blew it with this one, he must of been on deadline. Stay away, stay far away from this or you will never look at a Clancy book again. Barf. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Russ | 12/29/2012

    " Not as good as the earlier Clancy, and Jack Ryan, Jr. is not as compelling a character. Still, a good airplane read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eddie | 11/25/2012

    " I thought this was an o.k. effort to get away from the loooonnnnggg Jack Ryan saga. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nathan | 7/10/2012

    " I really liked Clancy's first half dozen books but hadn't read anything more recent until this one and its follow - up, Dead or Alive. Frankly both are crap. I have a hard time believing Clancy actually wrote either of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Justin | 5/29/2012

    " Haven't read much Clancy, I can see why he's so popular. This was a good book, good ideas, keep you interested throughout. A bit predictable, but still entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brendan | 11/24/2011

    " This was the first Tom Clancy book I ever read and I probably won't read another one. The book was entertaining enough but not what I expected after hearing what great books this guy writes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brad | 5/11/2011

    " The most maligned work of the series. It's not Clancy's best but it's far from the disaster that some make it out to be. I enjoyed it very much. "The Bear and the Dragon" is a much different story... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 4/29/2011

    " Not as bloated as some of his other books (see Bear and the Dragon), but not as good as Clear and Present Danger. Not as much with the actual military in this one, which is Clancy's bread and butter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 4/29/2011

    " Clancy has done better. Just about the time the book started to have suspense, it saw over. I smell a sequel?
    "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John | 4/13/2011

    " never finished it. book just couldn't hold my interest. May try again some time. Too long ago to remember the detail but the characters weren't compelling enough. perhaps I was missing jack ryan, john clark, ding, etc. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Szetong | 4/12/2011

    " Now Clancy's taking the series a bit too far. Fine, Jack Ryan became US president, but honestly, dragging the series on with his kids is ridiculous. Also, where did Enzo and Aldo come from? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J.W. | 3/22/2011

    " This one has been on my to read shelf for some time. It is an excellent Clancy classic. The Ryan family continues in the forefront of world crisis. It held me on the edge of my seat. It is a must read for Clancy fans. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 2/12/2011

    " not as good as vintage clancy and Jack Ryan Sr, but entertaining nonetheless. Jack Sr has more of a personality than his son. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula | 1/26/2011

    " This was one of his better ones. Not so much technical description. I enjoyed the story line, plot, and action. "
