Publisher's Summary

Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the "Campus" - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn't know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.
The Campus has now turned their sights on the Emir, the number-one terrorist threat to Western civilization. A reclusive figure and mastermind of vicious terrorist acts, the Emir has eluded capture by the world's law-enforcement agencies. But now - with the help of ex-CIA agent John Clark and protégé Marine Colonel Ding Chavez - the Campus is in on the hunt. The mission: to bring the Emir in - dead or alive.

Dead? Maybe this book?

Plowed through this book on the power of it's author, but wasn't too impressed. There was a lot of action, yes. But, even in it's condensed version, was 9 hours or so and contained a lot of droll discussion. What must the unabridged version be? That meant there was little character development--only the bad guys were new characters and they didn't last for the duration. The plot was pretty mundane...no, boring...chase after a terrorist. I'm not giving up on Clancy, yet!
