This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Jack Ryan, Jr., learns that sometimes the deadliest secret may be standing right next to you in this electrifying adventure in Tom Clancy’s #1 New York Times bestselling series.
Former U.S. Senator Weston Rhodes is a defense contractor with an urgent problem. His company needs someone to look over the books of Dalfan Technologies, a Singapore company—quickly. He turns to his old friend Gerry Hendley for help. Hendley Associates is one of the best financial analysis firms in the country and the cover for The Campus, a top-secret American intelligence agency. Rhodes asks for two specific analysts, Jack Ryan Jr., and Paul Brown, a mild-mannered forensic accountant.
Both Ryan and Brown initially resist, for different reasons. On the long flight over, Ryan worries he’s being sidelined from the next Campus operation in America’s war on terror. Brown—who was never very good with people—only worries about the numbers, and finding a good cup of tea.
Brown has no idea Jack works for The Campus but the awkward accountant is hiding secrets of his own. Rhodes has tasked him with uploading a cyberwarfare program into the highly secure Dalfan Technologies mainframe on behalf of the CIA.
On the verge of mission success, Brown discovers a game within the game, and the people who now want to kill him are as deadly as the cyclone bearing down on the island nation. Together Ryan and Brown race to escape both the murderous storm and a team of trained assassins in order to prevent a global catastrophe, even at the cost of their own lives.
Outstanding debut for Maden
Big fan of the Troy pierce series and was a little apprehensive about him writing jack jr..but..he killed it...10 times better than the last one. Love the story and what he set up for jr going forward. Can't wait for the next one
No point.........reading this book.
The only positive I can walk away with after reading this is knowing I did not pay full price for a hard cover. I expect to see this on sale at The Dollar Store before the summer ends. This is an insult to Tom Clancy's legacy. I am deeply disappointed Penguin Random House would allow this affront to Clancy fans be published. If this the lack of effort we can expect going forward with the Jack Ryan/The Campus universe then by all means please burn it all down and put these characters out of their misery,
Not up to par with previous Tom Clancy Jack Ryan Junior books written by the previous authors writing for Clancy. Plenty of suspense but not enough action until the final dozen or so chapters.
