Synopses & Reviews
A major motion picture starring Ben Affleck, Morgan Freeman, James Cromwell, Alan Bates and Michael Byrne!
Peace may finally be at hand in the Middle East—as Deputy Director of the CIA Jack Ryan lays the groundwork for a peace plan that could end centuries of conflict. But ruthless terrorists have a final, desperate card to play: they have their hands on a nuclear weapon and have placed it on American soil in the midst of an escalation in tension with the Soviet Union. The terrorists hope to rekindle cold war animosity and prevent reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians. With one terrible act, distrust mounts, forces collide, and the floundering U.S. president seems unable to cope with the crisis. With the world on the verge of nuclear disaster, Ryan must frantically seek a solution—before the chiefs of state lose control of themselves and the world.
CIA Deputy Director Jack Ryan returns to the screen in Paramount Pictures' film adaptation of this novel of intrigue, set for release in May and starring Ben Affleck as Ryan. The Gulf War is over and an Israeli nuclear weapon is missing. The balance of power in the Mideast--and the world--is about to change forever. Jack Ryan returns to face the challenge of his career when his proposal for a Middle Eastern peace plan erupts into chaos.
