Product Description

Product Description

Tom Clancy's new Jack Ryan thriller, Command Authority, is available to pre-order now.



The spies are being spied on in Tom Clancy's Threat Vector, the latest gripping addition to the Jack Ryan Jr series.



When Jack Ryan Jr, on a highly secret, off-the-books Campus mission in Turkey, discovers that his team's every move is monitored, he knows that US intelligence has been fatally compromised.



Back in the States, President Ryan watches in horror as China's weakened leader bends to a war-mongering general intent on turning the East into a bloodbath. At the same time, America comes under cyber attack from China, crippling government and military infrastructure. President Ryan needs to act: a covert team must go in and neutralise these threats, and the Campus is the perfect fit.



Except a sinister figure known only as the Center is watching the Campus and Jack Ryan Jr's every move. Any misstep will be their last . . .



Jack Ryan is back and he's got everything to play for in Tom Clancy's masterful Threat Vector. The Jack Ryan Jr series also includes The Teeth of the Tiger, Dead or Alive and Locked On.



Praise for Tom Clancy:



'Clancy creates not only compelling characters but frighteningly topical situations and heart-stopping action' Washington Post



'He constantly taps the current world situation for its imminent dangers and spins them into an engrossing tale' New York Times Book Review




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 has a degree in international relations and political science and is pursuing his master's in intelligence studies with a concentration in criminal intelligence. He is the author of The Gray Man, On Target, and Ballistic. In his research for these novels, he travelled to seven countries and trained alongside military and law enforcement in the use of firearms, battlefield medicine and close-range combat tactics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clancy finds his Form 12 Dec 2012
By Chris Hoare TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Threat Vector is a bit different from past Clancy books; over the series the story of the Ryan family went from a terrorist attack on his family; to over the course of several books multiple terrorist attacks on his Country. From small battles through Biological War to Ultrawar; and the last two The Bear and the Dragon and The Teeth of the Tiger portrayed a warfare and battlefield that was different to what we were seeing in Iraq and Afghanistan. Along the way; despite the vast lead character count, the books lost their soul - ceased being about a spy doing small things and became descriptions of how the USA could overpower anyway with its technological prowess.

With the reboot bringing Jack Ryan's Son as a new analyst / operations officer at the blacker than black Hendley Associates; Threat Vector takes us back to spies treading softly; to risks behind every door and to characters living with paranoia. The old faces are there; to the point that the book has a 3 page character list before you get to page 1. At 700 pages I had planned to read 100 a day for a week and make it to the end. I finished in 3 days. The changing scenary; and fast moving situations lead me to chasing down the last 300 pages on the third day. As with all Clancy books there is a lot of setup and a snap finish; but with threat vector he provides a denouement settling the characters down and handing over the baton from Ryan Sr to Jnr.

Threat vector is a vast improvement on the two books above; and provides a great story and look at how a war between technological superpowers might look today. If you like the Clancy of old the combined story with Mark Greaney has much to appreciate here.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as his original Jack Ryan novels 22 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book has an interesting plot-line but the development of the plot seems shallow when compared to Clancy's original Jack Ryan novels. There is still a level of detail which gives the feeling of authenticity, but without getting bogged down in too much detail, however the climax of the novel is a bit of anti-climax and my feeling at the end was one of disappointment.

I see Tom Clancy sadly died recently and I hope he will be remembered for his original novels (a favourite read of the late President Ronald Reagan apparently) and not his later offerings which had started to look formulaic.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read - quite involving 14 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Taking the old crew and continuing with their story, albeit the later books are not as good as Clancy's early works, but it amazes me that the authors can still keep coming up with new avenues to explore.

5.0 out of 5 stars An exciting cyber warfare tale. 4 Dec 2012
By J. Lesley TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Have you ever read a book before whose theme just stayed in your mind to such an extent that you found yourself thinking about it long after you had finished reading it? That is what THREAT VECTOR has been for me. Part of the reason is because I recognize that the basic plot ideas here could actually become reality in some form. Could. That is a very important word in that sentence. Another part of the reason this story has stayed in my mind so strongly is that this collaborative effort between Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney has characters who come so vividly alive on the pages that I accept that this just might have actually happened to them. Yes, it is fiction, but it certainly does open up the possibilities of "what if...............".

What if one nation had a secret cyber network in place now which could watch operatives of other governments carry out their missions in startling, minute, real time detail? What if they had unlimited resources to continue to develop their technology to take over the United States, indeed the world, using this cyber warfare? And what if loss of life meant absolutely nothing to them as long as they accomplished their goal? It is the mission of Jack Ryan, Jr. and everyone else at The Campus to find this Chinese government Ghost Ship - the technology center - and destroy it, no matter how impossible the mission may seem. Can everyone survive this mission?

I think this book was incredible. Quite a strong statement and yet, for me, it fits here. I had a love/hate reaction to the main plot because it is hard to face the fact that something like this might actually be possible. In the first sections of the novel some of the details seemed to take a long time to develop, but ultimately I understand the reasons it was necessary.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad...... 5 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not bad with some great detail, bit long winded at times. It's definitely worth a read if you're a Tom Clancy fan but it won't bring new readers to the series.
