Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island. Meanwhile, Chinese cyber warfare experts have launched a devastating attack on American infrastructure. It's a new combat arena, but it’s every bit as deadly as any that has gone before. Jack Ryan, Jr. and his colleagues at the Campus may be just the wild card that his father needs to stack the deck. There's just one problem: someone knows about the off-the-books intelligence agency and threatens to blow their cover sky high. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roland Mccarthy | 2/17/2014

    " I thought it was a good read, kept me entertained. Only thing negative to say is that I felt the book was too predictable, everything pretty much went as was expected, a few twists would have made it much more enjoyable. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Paula Mulroy | 2/14/2014

    " I realize I am probably not the Clancy target audience, but what an incredibly pompous piece of nonsense. I managed to make it halfway before I gave up. Definitely not recommended for people whose last encounter with Clancy was The Hunt For Red October, because in between Jack Ryan went from Buccaroo to warmonger in a handbasket! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randy Young | 2/11/2014

    " Another great book from Tom Clancy. It has been great following Jack Ryan and all the other characters over the year. Can't wait for the next book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda | 1/31/2014

    " Loved this book. As usual, it left me wishing Jack Ryan Sr. was our real life president. Interesting how timely the Chinese Hacker situation intersects with the present day headlines. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janett Wawrzyniak | 1/29/2014

    " Threat Vector by Tom Clancy with Mark Greaney. President Jack Ryan in the Oval Office; a former CIA agent and his son eliminate threats to interests of the U.S. Someone is working against them and their intelligence agency, threatening to expose them. Chinese experts in cyber-warfare launch an attack on the U. S. Chinese attacks escalate to satellites, dog fights and throughout the broad range of technology. There is much telling in narrative and at times it is not advancing the characters or story. Characters thoughts and dialogue could share more of the telling narrative or exposition advancing the plot. With suspenseful action the characters are believable and heroes work against fierce odds. A high tech thriller, blending general military knowledge realism and intricate plotting. "

    " OK read for audio book at the gym about a cyber attack on the US by China. I'm amazed at the technical detail this author seems to have at his command--flying fighter planes, hacking computers, military strategy and stuff.....but the story loses credibility for me with immortal main characters who slay adversaries with a single, quick stroke, and the dark haired beauty whom you really wish somebody would shoot but they never do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/19/2014

    " I some times got bored with the sections that were drawn out with details and this wasn't my favorite Tom Clancy book, this was a very good book which I couldn't put down for the last 300 pages or so. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debra Kaitschuck | 1/19/2014

    " This was the first Tom Clancy novel I've read. As I opened the book to see a list of all the various characters and who they were, I worried I would have a hard time following along. But the novel was so well written and the story flowed so well that it wasn't a problem at all. I will be reading more of his novels in the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 1/16/2014

    " Another fun story in the Jack Ryan series! This one wasn't as much of a cliff hanger as the last one so it will be very interesting to see what happens next. As usual I enjoyed the pace and the action and the story itself! "

    " I enjoy Tom Clancy's books but he needs to tone down the number of pages. 800 pages every time is just too much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don | 12/12/2013

    " I am afraid this book may become true. It will grab your intrest and not turn loose. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ko | 12/6/2013

    " A huge improvement over locked on, but I don't think the Jack Ryan series will ever be 5 stars without Clancy writing them himself. "

    " Classic Clancy. Another great book. Love the new kids too. Any book with John Clark is bad ass. "
