Product Description

Product Description

A North Korean ICBM crashes into the Sea of Japan. A veteran CIA officer is murdered in Ho Chi Minh City, and a package of forged documents goes missing. The pieces are there, but assembling the puzzle will cost Jack Ryan, Jr. and his fellow Campus agents precious time. Time they don’t have.

The challenge facing President Jack Ryan is an old one with a terrifying new twist. The international stalemate with North Korea continues into its seventh decade. A young, untested dictator is determined to prove his strength by breaking the deadlock. Like his father before him, he hangs his plans on the country’s nuclear ambitions. Until now, that program was impeded by a lack of resources. However, there has been a dramatic change in the nation’s economic fortune. A rich deposit of valuable minerals have been found in the Hermit Kingdom. Coupled with their nuclear capabilities, the money from this find will make North Korea a dangerous force on the world stage.

There’s just one more step needed to complete this perfect plan…the elimination of the president of the United States.

About the Author

Thirty years ago Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore's Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted on to the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it 'the perfect yarn'. From that day forward, Clancy established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. He passed away in October 2013. Mark Greaney is the co-author of three #1 New York Times bestellers with Tom Clancy. He has a degree in international relations and political science. In his research for these novels, Greaney travelled to seven countries and trained alongside military and law enforcement in the use of firearms, battlefield medicine and close-range combat tactics. He lives in Memphis, Tennessee.

When I started reading this book, I was expecting to give it a 3 star review. By the time I finished it, I was getting close to 5 stars. It's definitely a slow starter, despite some early action sequences. And it follows the same formula that previous Jack Ryan (senior) books have done; one international threat/crisis, one interlinked domestic threat/crisis, and a lot of intelligence work. It took me a while to realise that my early dissatisfaction with the book was really due to finding the formula, and the expositional build-up to the crises, repetitive.

Even though it's a book in the Jack Ryan (senior) series, the book spends a lot of time on Jack Ryan (junior) and his buddies from The Campus. If you haven't read the most recent book in the Ryan junior series -- "Support and Defend" -- then read it before you read "Full Force and Effect", because the latter contains some minor spoilers for the former.

When it did get going, though, Mark Greaney handled it pretty well, with a lot of the action, touches, and will-they-won't-they that made Clancy's earlier Ryan books (up to 'Executive Orders') superior to his later ones. I particularly liked a sequence where the Campus guys were scrambling to make a situation look completely normal -- it was almost hilarious in a Keystone Kops/Some Like It Hot fashion. On the other hand, Greaney sometimes overreaches himself; there is one action sequence that occurs in a very public location that is never referred to again after it concludes. There is no way that would happen in real life -- the incident would be all over the newspapers, the police and FBI would throw resources at it, and the guys involved would have to deal with the consequences.

Clancy books rely on masses of detail to carry them along and make you think the author really knows his stuff - unfortunately when easily researchable errors appear in areas the reader is familiar with it undermines the whole story - a couple of non-spoiler examples Eton is a high school not a university (or school in the US sense) so calling the teachers "professors" and having an MI6 recruiter suggest an attendee takes the civil service exams (for graduates not school kids!) is indicative of very poor attention to detail, also via Piave in Rome is a short, ugly street very near the British Embassy - hardly somewhere a supposedly clandestine British operative would choose for a romantic stroll with someone he shouldn't! Such basic errors deeply undermined my ability to suspend disbelief and left me wondering how many other, more crucial "details" are just plain wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Follow the new Clancy 21 Dec 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought with the passing of Tom Clancy that Jack Ryan would follow as well like so many fictional characters. Luckily Mr Clancy had been working with Mark Greaney and like his characters Mark has kept them alive and kicking. This book is a true tribute to Tom Clancy and hopefully will allow the characters to flourish in new adventures. Well worth a read, and again like his predecessor Mark manages to hit a controversial subject just as the Sony/N Korea incident occurs. Tom must surely be wringing his hands in pleasure that Jack Ryan is in safe hands.

Good read Moves along at a cracking pace Not as detailed and well researched as earlier Clancy novels and plot is a little disingenuous here and there. However kept me turning the pages til the early hours and that's a challenge! 0verall would'nt win any literary awards but for all that an enjoyable read. NDOC

4.0 out of 5 stars Cracking read 19 Dec 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A cracking read. Greaney moves Clancy's novels away from the forensic techno thriller to the area of airport fiction. He weaves familiar characters into today's geo-political headlines and wraps the whole up in a fast-paced story based on the DPRK's defence ambitions.
Really enjoyable and recommended.
