Threat Vector (Jack Ryan Novels)by Tom Clancy
Synopses & Reviews
Para Jack Ryan, Jr. y sus compañeros de la organización secreta conocida como el Campus, la lucha contra los enemigos de los Estados Unidos no tiene fin. Pero el peligro acaba de llegar a casa de una manera que nunca esperaron
VECTOR DE AMENAZA
El Campus ha sido descubierto. Y quienquiera que sepa de su existencia, sabe también que puede ser destruido. Mientras tanto, el presidente Jack Ryan ha llegado de nuevo a la Oficina Oval, y su sabiduría y valor se necesitan con más urgencia que nunca.
Los conflictos políticos y económicos internos han llevado al liderazgo de China al borde del desastre. Y aquellos que desean consolidar su poder están aprovechando la anhelada oportunidad de atacar Taiwán y a los estadounidenses, que han protegido a esta pequeña nación.
Ahora, mientras dos de las superpotencias mundiales se acercan cada vez más a una confrontación final, el presidente Ryan debe utilizar el único comodín que le queda: el Campus. Pero con su existencia a punto de ser revelada, tal vez no tengan siquiera la oportunidad de pelear una batalla antes de que el mundo sea devastado por la guerra.
"This highly readable if workmanlike techno thriller from bestseller Clancy and Greaney (Locked On) chronicles the epic struggle between the United States and a China bent on economic and geographic expansion. When China's President Wei Zhen Lin faces drastic economic problems, he becomes a pawn of Su Ke Qiang, chairman of the Central Military Commission of China, who begins to make aggressive moves in the South China Sea. Meanwhile, someone code-named Center is carrying out extremely sophisticated cyber-attacks against U.S. interests around the world. Various other high-stakes actions occur in Turkey, Russia, Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, and Washington, D.C. Fortunately, the Americans can count on U.S. president Jack Ryan, son Jack Jr., and ex — Navy Seal John Clark to combat the Chinese giant. Clancy fans will welcome all the high-tech data as well as heroes who can single-handedly take out whole teams of bad guys. Agents: Jennifer Rudolph Walsh and Tracy Fisher, William Morris Endeavor.

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.
