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.

For Jack Ryan, Jr., and his comrades at the covert organization known as The Campus, the fight against Americas enemies is never over. But the danger has just hit home in a way they never expected
The Campus has been discovered. And whoever knows they exist knows they can be destroyed. Meanwhile, President Jack Ryan has been swept back into the Oval Office—and his wisdom and courage are needed more desperately than ever.
Internal political and economic strife has pushed the leadership of China to the edge of disaster. And those who wish to consolidate their power are using the opportunity to strike at long-desired Taiwan, as well as the Americans who have protected the tiny nation.
Now, as two of the worlds superpowers move ever closer to a final confrontation, President Ryan must use the only wild card he has left—The Campus. But with their existence about to be revealed, they might not even have a chance to enter the battle before the world is consumed by war.
For the first time ever, Tom Clancy's greatest characters come together in one electrifying thriller.
For years, Jack Ryan, Jr., and his colleagues at the Campus have waged an unofficial and highly effective campaign against the terrorists who threaten Western civilization. The most dangerous of these is the Emir. This sadistic killer has masterminded the most vicious attacks on the West and has eluded capture by the world's law enforcement agencies.
Now the Campus is on his trail. Joined by their latest recruits, John Clark and Ding Chavez, Jack Ryan, Jr., and his cousins, Dominick and Brian Caruso, are determined to catch the Emir, and they will bring him in . . . dead or alive.
