Publisher's Summary

At what point does criminal activity threaten national security? When can a nation respond to it as to an enemy? These are the questions Jack Ryan must consider when he hears the awful news: Colombian drug lords, tired of being harassed by US law enforcement agents, have assassinated three high American officials, and that is just the beginning. The message is clear: Leave us alone. But they have pushed too far. Someone steps quietly over the line they have drawn, deploying covert-action teams in Colombia, intending to take the fight to the enemy. But does anyone know who the real enemy is? And how much action is too much? Who is doing what? Which line has been crossed? Ryan and his "dark side" counterpart, a shadowy field officer known only as Mr. Clark, must find out. They expect danger from without - but the danger from within may be the greatest of all.

Drug Cartels and terrorists. Explosive Action!

What made the experience of listening to Clear and Present Danger the most enjoyable?

The many twist and turns in the story and Jack Ryan unravelling all the deception.

What other book might you compare Clear and Present Danger to and why?

There is no other book of a similar type that could even compare.

Which scene was your favorite?

The Drug Cartels, the former Cuban spy and Cutter getting their comeuppance. Also the rescue of Domingo Chavez and his first meeting with John Clark.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes although it is too long to do that.
