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.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
A better story line and character development
Has Tom Clancy Under Fire turned you off from other books in this genre?
no, but now I am very sceptical of the Grant Blackwood direction of this series.
What three words best describe Scott Brick’s voice?
A good storyteller (but he need a good story)
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
It continued the Jack Ryan universe, but not really any development of the characters. I didnt even care about the main characters that have been previously developed.
Any additional comments?
THe story became less plausible the further along it went, and the characters nothing more than cardboard cutouts. I have been very caught up in all the previous Clancy books, and even enjoyed the previous Grant Blackwood stories, this just fell flat. I did not even finish the book. I really did not care at all about how anything concluded. That has never happened before in a book like this.

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.
