Synopses & Reviews
Aunque su padre se ha mostrado renuente a convertirse en un heroico agente de campo, Jack Ryan hijo no quiere otra cosa que eso…
Entrenando privadamente con las fuerzas especiales, está perfeccionando sus habilidades de combate para continuar su trabajo dentro del Campus, persiguiendo y eliminando terroristas donde quiera que pueda—incluso mientras Jack Ryan padre hace campaña para convertirse en presidente de los Estados Unidos de nuevo.
Pero lo que ni el padre ni el hijo saben es que la política y lo personal han pasado a ser igualmente peligrosas. Un enemigo devoto de Jack padre lanza un venganza financiada privadamente para desacreditarlo y conectarlo con el misterioso asesinato, tiempo atrás, de su viejo aliado John Clark. Todo lo que tienen que hacer as atraparlo.
Con Clark a la fuga, le toca a Jack hijo detener un creciente amenaza emergente en el Medio Oriente, donde un corrupto general paquistaní ha hecho un pacto mortal con un terrorista fanático para conseguir cuatro cabezas nucleares y con ellas chantajear a cualquier poder del mundo para que se someta a sus deseos…o enfrente la aniquilación total.
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 dont 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 countrys nuclear ambitions. Until now, that program was impeded by a lack of resources. However, there has been a dramatic change in the nations 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.
Theres just one more step needed to complete this perfect plan the elimination of the president of the United States.
One of Tom Clancy's most storied characters, Dominic Caruso, is the only one who can stop America's secrets from falling into enemy hands in this blockbuster new novel written by Clancy's longtime coauthor.Ethan Ross was a mid-level staffer for the National Security Council.

Only Caruso stands in their way, but can he succeed without the aid of his Campus colleagues?
