Publisher's Summary

On a routine intelligence gathering mission in Tehran, Jack Ryan, Jr., has lunch with his oldest friend, Seth Gregory: an engineer overseeing a transcontinental railway project. As they part, Seth slips Jack a key, along with a perplexing message.
The next day Jack is summoned to an apartment where two men claim Seth has disappeared - gone to ground with funds for a vital intelligence operation. Jack's oldest friend has turned, they insist.
They leave Jack with a warning: If you hear from Seth Gregory, call us immediately. And do not get involved.
But they don't know Jack. He won't abandon a friend in need.
His pursuit of the truth will lead him across Iran, through the war-torn Caucasus, and finally deep into territory coveted by the increasingly aggressive Russian Federation. Along the way, Jack is joined by Seth's primary agent, Ysabel, an enigmatic Iranian woman who seems to be his only clue to Seth's whereabouts.
Jack soon finds himself lost in a maze of intrigue, lies, and betrayal where no one is who they seem to be - not even Seth, who's harboring a secret of his own that harkens back to the Cold War. A secret that is driving him to the brink of treachery.
Racing against the clock, Jack must unravel the mystery: Who is friend and who is foe? Before it's over, Jack Ryan, Jr., may have to choose between his loyalty to Seth and his loyalty to America.

Mark Greaney is much better than Grant Blackwood

What did you like best about Tom Clancy Under Fire? What did you like least?

Mark Greaney's Jack Ryan novels are much better than Grant Blavckwood's. In fact, Greaney is a better writer than Clancy himself. If Blackwood continues to write the Ryan series, this will be my last Ryan novel.


Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to Scott Brick's narration of dozens of novels. He is simply one of the best.


Do you think Tom Clancy Under Fire needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I'd love to read future Jack Ryan Jr. novels unless they are written by Grant Blackwood.

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

Not really a Clancy Novel

Written like a piece of fan fiction. A real disappointment. The Greaney books at least felt like a Clancy work. This book completely lacks the authenticity of other novels in the series.
