Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

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.

Over the course of three decades, Tom Clancy created a world alive with prescient action and remarkable individuals. In Tom Clancy Support and Defend, Dominic Caruso is presented with the deadliest challenge of his career.

Dominic Caruso. Nephew of President Jack Ryan.  FBI agent and operator for The Campus, a top secret intelligence agency that works off the books for the U.S. government.  Already scarred by the death of his brother, Caruso is devastated when he cant save a friend and his family from a terrorist attack

 

Ethan Ross was a mid-level staffer for the National Security Council. Now hes a wanted fugitive on the run with a microdrive that contains enough information to wreck American intelligence efforts around the world.  The CIA is desperate to get the drive back, but so are the Russians and various terrorist groups all of whom are closer to catching the fugitive. Only Caruso stands in their way, but can he succeed without the aid of his Campus colleagues?

Synopsis:

Though his father had been reluctant to become a heroic field operative, Jack Ryan, Jr. wants nothing more…
 
Privately training with special forces, he’s honing his combat skills to continue his work within the Campus, hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can—even as Jack Ryan, Sr. campaigns to become President of the United States again.
 
But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and personal have just become equally dangerous. A devout enemy of Jack, Sr. launches a privately-funded vendetta to discredit him and connect him to a mysterious killing in his longtime ally John Clark’s past. All they have to do is catch him.
 
With Clark on the run, it’s up to Jack, Jr. to stop a growing threat emerging in the Middle East, where a corrupt Pakistani general has entered into a deadly pact with a fanatical terrorist to procure four nuclear warheads they can use to blackmail any world power into submission—or face annihilation.

About the Author

Tom Clancy's debut novel, The Hunt for Red October, catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it "the perfect yarn." Since then Clancy has established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and suspense. He lives in Maryland.

Tom Clancy again finds a way to continue the story of the Ryan family, along with the rest of the colourful personalities we have come to know, without getting redundant. Clancy tortures his characters as well as anyone. The story is timely and relevant as always and he manages to bring together multiple story lines seamlessly for the conclusion. I was sorry to see it end and I eagerly await the next installment. No Clancy fan will be disappointed with his latest effort.

One of the best Clancy books in years. Not only do we get Jack Ryan Jr. & the Campus, but we get the original Jack Ryan as well. Jack Sr's mad at the current wimpy administration & lack of intelligence in the spy community so he decides to run for President again. John Clark & Domingo Chavez return as well!
