Publisher's Summary

In a nondescript office building in suburban Maryland, the firm Hendley Associates does a profitable business in stocks, bonds, and international currencies, but its true mission is quite different: to identify and locate terrorist threats, and then deal with them, in whatever manner necessary. Established with the knowledge of President John Patrick Ryan, "the Campus" is always on the lookout for promising new talent, its recruiters scattered throughout the armed forces and government agencies - and three men are about to cross its radar.

The first is Dominic Caruso, a rookie FBI agent, barely a year out of Quantico, whose decisive actions resolve a particularly brutal kidnap/murder case. The second is Caruso's brother, Brian, a Marine captain just back from his first combat action in Afghanistan, and already a man to watch. And the third is their cousin...a young man named Jack Ryan, Jr.

Jack was raised on intrigue. As his father moved through the ranks of the CIA and then into the White House, Jack received a life course in the world and the way it operates from agents, statesmen, analysts, Secret Service men, and black ops specialists such as John Clark and Ding Chavez. He wants to put it all to work now, but when he knocks on the front door of "the Campus," he finds that nothing has prepared him for what he is about to encounter. For it is indeed a different world out there - and in here. And it is about to become far more dangerous.

A starting point

The story is not great but important for painting a picture of the Ryan Jr. character as well as the campus organization. It's entertaining to the point that one doesn't want to drop it but not so much of a Clancy's thriller. The performance isn't good enough and takes away a star. A better performance could have elevated the impression significantly.

Great novel, but short.

Although I enjoyed the reader, there was many, many time lines were repeated. I thinks should have been checked in post production.

Doesn't feel like Clancy at all

This book serves as little more than an introductory entry to the Campus- which will help make the next three books make more sense. But the story is fairly simple, and the audio was messed up in post production causing some sections to be duplicated which is a little distracting.

Mediocre at best

If this has been my first Tom Clancy book it would have been my last. Very slow and little action. Somewhat tedious.

Decent listen

This story has a good plot. Probably a shade if too many minute details to draw the story out. The audible editing is horrible as there’s a pile of repeat sentences or paragraphs. Still recommend.

Not Great. Did Clancy write this? Or pull a "Trump

I truly like Tom Clancy. His work is like candy for the brain, admittedly, but a fun escape. By the time he got to this point in the Jack Ryan series, he got pretty thin. It feels as though ghost-written. Clancy just slapped his name on it.
The novel is decent but predictable. The reader is a little annoying and some passages are actually repeated. A fair read. 5 stars out of 10.

Not the best entry in the series

Although the book was fun, it is well below the typical standard of the Tom Clancy universe in terms of tension and excitement. It ends abruptly and is somewhat anticlimactic.
Also, numerous times throughout the book a sentence or two is repeated by the reader. Probably a production error that was never fixed.

Poor effort by all involved

At least a 6-7 times the reader re-reads the same line or 2. Didn’t really feel like Tom Clancy.

Extremely Racist

Story glorifies white supremacy and the acceptance of white Americans murdering other races as heroic. Extremely unacceptable for a 2002 era book

This could have been much better.

The characters all sounded the same. If they didn’t say their names often, I wouldn’t be able to tell them apart.
There were repeated sentences. Someone did a poor job of editing.
