Publisher's Summary

The newest electrifying thriller in the #1 New York Times–bestselling series has President Jack Ryan and his allies facing a treacherous foe threatening to unleash chaos around the globe. . . .
When Russian President Valeri Volodin's ambitions are foiled in Dagestan, he faces a difficult choice. The oligarchs who support him expect a constant flow of graft, but with energy prices cratering, the Russian economy sputters to a virtual halt. Unable to grow the Russian market at home, his hold on power relies on expansion abroad—a plan that has been thwarted by the United States in the past. But this time Volodin has determined that an indirect approach is the best. A floating natural gas facility in Lithuania is blown up. A Venezuelan prosecutor is assassinated. A devastating attack on a Russian troop train kills dozens. A chaotic world is the best camouflage for a series of seemingly unrelated attacks.
Only one man recognizes an ominous pattern in the reports of terror from around the globe. U.S. President Jack Ryan sees a guiding hand in the worldwide chaos, but before he can act he needs proof.

Great novel!

Action? Suspense? This novel has it all! To set it up the president of Russia plans to invade Lithuania and President Jack Ryan tries to get NATO to honor its commitment to defend all member states against aggression. This is a complex novel with lots of different events occurring at the same time. 67 tear old John Clark plays a major role as does Jack Jr. and his cousin as well as Domingo Chavez. The main character in this book is President Jack Ryan, not Jack Jr.

Mark Greaney has already established himself is one of the very best espionage thriller writers. I believe this is his best book. Scott Brick is absolutely brilliant as narrator.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Good old Russia

No matter who the writer is Russia is always the perfect adversary in Tom Clancy novels. Tom Clancy books are best when the story is pertinent to current events. This one is perfect. Well written, Technically accurate and disturbingly possible.
