Threat Vector by Tom Clancy with Mark Greaney. President Jack Ryan in the Oval Office; a former CIA agent and his son eliminate threats to interests of the U.S. Someone is working against them and their intelligence agency, threatening to expose them. Chinese experts in cyber-warfare launch an attack on the U. S. Chinese attacks escalate to satellites, dog fights and throughout the broad range of technology. There is much telling in narrative and at times it is not advancing the characters or story. Characters thoughts and dialogue could share more of the telling narrative or exposition advancing the plot. With suspenseful action the characters are believable and heroes work against fierce odds. A high tech thriller blending general military knowledge, realism and intricate plotting.
