This electrifying thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling series has President Jack Ryan and his allies facing a treacherous foe threatening to unleash chaos around the globe...

When Russian President Valeri Volodin’s ambitions are foiled in Dagestan, he faces a difficult choice. The oligarchs who support him expect a constant flow of graft, but with energy prices cratering, the Russian economy sputters to a virtual halt. Unable to grow the Russian market at home, his hold on power relies on expansion abroad—a plan that has been thwarted by the United States in the past.

But this time Volodin has determined that an indirect approach is the best. A floating natural gas facility in Lithuania is blown up. A Venezuelan prosecutor is assassinated. A devastating attack on a Russian troop train kills dozens. A chaotic world is the best camouflage for a series of seemingly unrelated attacks.

Only one man recognizes an ominous pattern in the reports of terror from around the globe. U.S. President Jack Ryan sees a guiding hand in the worldwide chaos, but before he can act he needs proof.

While his intelligence agencies race to uncover the truth behind the attacks, the President struggles to unite a fractious and distrustful coalition of Western nations against the schemes of the Russian dictator.

With five thousand Russian troops poised to invade a NATO nation, can Jack Ryan move swiftly enough to stop Volodin’s grand plan of global conflict and conquest? Or will he succeed in changing the balance of world power forever?

    Definitely not Clancy but still an overall good book. Author seemed to jump through and over parts of the book and kind of left you out to dry.
  • Not Clancy

    By Shordan1
    A fairly good read but not Clancy. Tends to move a bit slow here and there.

    A page turner. As in the previous books of this series, exciting as always. Hope the series continues.

    A good read
  • Could’ve been so much more

    This read like an outline of the real story, and would have been great had it been written like Red Storm Rising. Gone is the detail about military hardware and tactics so loved in the early Clancy books, instead we get an armed conflict — with a love story intertwined — driven by character study rather than action.
