Publisher's Summary

In the latest electrifying adventure in Tom Clancy's #1 New York Times bestselling series, Jack Ryan, Jr., learns that sometimes the deadliest secret may be standing right next to you.
Former U.S. Senator Weston Rhodes is a defense contractor with an urgent problem. His company needs someone to look over the books of Dalfan Technologies, a Singapore company—quickly. He turns to his old friend Gerry Hendley for help. Hendley Associates is one of the best financial analysis firms in the country and the cover for The Campus, a top-secret American intelligence agency. Rhodes asks for two specific analysts, Jack Ryan Jr., and Paul Brown, a mild-mannered forensic accountant.
Both Ryan and Brown initially resist, for different reasons. On the long flight over, Ryan worries he’s being sidelined from the next Campus operation in America’s war on terror. Brown—who was never very good with people—only worries about the numbers, and finding a good cup of tea.
Brown has no idea Jack works for The Campus but the awkward accountant is hiding secrets of his own. Rhodes has tasked him with uploading a cyberwarfare program into the highly secure Dalfan Technologies mainframe on behalf of the CIA.
On the verge of mission success, Brown discovers a game within the game, and the people who now want to kill him are as deadly as the cyclone bearing down on the island nation. Together Ryan and Brown race to escape both the murderous storm and a team of trained assassins in order to prevent a global catastrophe, even at the cost of their own lives.

So bad I don't even know where to begin...

I'm scratching my head trying to figure out what the purpose was for this book. First, it could literally have been 1/2 as long. So much written that had nothing to do with the story. I'm guessing the author and publishers knew this and threw in a tropical cyclone to try and add some drama...fail.

The action was, well, unremarkable. No suspense whatsoever. No surprises. The only thing that kept me hanging on was the narration.

Don't waste a credit on this. It pains me to say it but it's true. Wait for the next one, which will hopefully be written by Greaney.

Ugh!

Give the guy a break!

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book. I bought it having very low expectations. I think that's because I was really unhappy with the last author (not Greany) that I returned the book. This one was such a surprise. I think Mike Maden did a great job. Not being an author I am only guessing but I think it would be very difficult to put aside my own style of writing and do every other book with another author who already has a following AND try to pick up from a story that you didn't write and give it continuity- KUDOS Mr. Maden, I for one think you did wonderfully!<br/>This is a really good book with a fantastic plot. Lots of irony as Ryan Jr and his partner, each unaware of what the other is doing and suspicious of each other work towards an explosive ending. <br/>Scott Brick, as always gives a great performance. <br/>HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. <br/>If you found this review helpful please indicate so. <br/>Thank You.

Starts well - then gets worse

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This started well with the usual parallel story lines. This approach then stalls with a growing focus on an increasingly implausible situation in a Singapore technology company. <br/><br/>Jack Ryan becomes more and more cartoon like in his behaviour and the 'in one jump he was free' type of narrative.<br/><br/>There was also lots of' '.....Jack knew he shouldn't....but somehow he couldn't help himself....'<br/><br/>Really?!

What was most disappointing about Mike Maden’s story?

Lack of pace, unlikely situations, non believable characterisations - even for a Jack Ryan story.

What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

The performance was generally good.

Was Tom Clancy Point of Contact worth the listening time?

I got bored about half way through.

Any additional comments?

Not one of the better books in the series.

good but not great

A good story and we'll narrated. the conclusion was a bit brief and disjointed. Not the up to the usual standard, but enjoyable none the less.

Enjoyable story and excellent narrator

Firstly, Scott Brick is an exceptional narrator who gives so much personality to every character in this audiobook, from our protagonist Jack Ryan to a sleep deprived Singaporean guard worried about his mother (not a spoiler).

The modern Tom Clancy stories are well crafted and well paced, with scenarios that feel grounded in reality. The story starts off with several disconnected parties all doing their own thing, then join together as the story unfolds.

This title is on par with the previous one in quality (True Faith and Allegiance).
