The #1 New York Times bestseller...Tom Clancy is back! After almost a decade, Tom Clancy returns to the world he knows better than anyone: a world caught in the crossfire of politics and power, placed on the edge of annihilation by evil men. But there are those who are honor-bound to protect their homeland by any means necessary. Those men work in the covert force known as the Campus. Led by Jack Ryan, Jr.-son of the legendary Jack Ryan-they are the best line of defense against a terrorist mastermind who has vowed to destroy the West...
After stumbling with The Teeth of the Tiger (2003), bestseller Clancy is back at the top of his game, aided by Blackwood (An Echo of War), with this update on the Jack Ryan story, both father and son. While the senior Ryan is sitting at home quietly penning his memoirs, the real action is taking place at "The Campus," the independent secret intelligence agency he set up when he was commander in chief. Jack Ryan Jr., who works for The Campus as a researcher, has, unbeknownst to his father, begun involving himself in field operations. Uppermost in the sights of The Campus is the deadly Emir (read Osama bin Laden), who has set in motion a new round of attacks. Jack Sr. is furious at current President Edward Kealty, whose liberal administration is stripping the CIA and other intelligence agencies of funding and manpower. In-depth research, continuous suspense, and scores of fascinating characters prove again why Clancy, the man who virtually invented this genre, reigns supreme in the crowded thriller field.
