Peace may finally be at hand in the Middle East - as Deputy Director of the CIA Jack Ryan lays the groundwork for a peace plan that could end centuries of conflict. But ruthless terrorists have a final, desperate card to play: They have their hands on a nuclear weapon and have placed it on American soil in the midst of an escalation in tension with the Soviet Union. The terrorists hope to rekindle cold war animosity and prevent reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians. With one terrible act, distrust mounts, forces collide, and the floundering U.S. president seems unable to cope with the crisis. With the world on the verge of nuclear disaster, Ryan must frantically seek a solution - before the chiefs of state lose control of themselves and the world.

Great story line
I read the original book when it first was published and am now working my way through the series as audiobooks to refresh what happened to who and where.
This book was yet another great story and it's interesting to read the plots now that technology has moved forward some what.
However it was a bit long winded in places and I struggled slightly with the scene changeover from one part of the story to the next as the narrator didn't pause long enough and sometimes it was quite confusing however I did enjoy it overall and would recommend it to others

Lots of details for the "fans"
What did you love best about The Sum of All Fears?
I love the way Clancy always acknowledges his readers are intelligent enough to manage several "back" stories. He doesn't have to step you through the characters, they are so well written you don't need reminders or prompts. The Sum of All Fears is just such a story.. Clever, well proportioned and credible characters.
What other book might you compare The Sum of All Fears to and why?
Matthew Reilly gives the reader the same impression of deep research. and having done same wants to share every morsel with the reader. I feel I'm not just being entertained I am learning... Very satisfying experience
What does John MacDonald bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Nice to hear someone who can read without taking breathes and gasps midsentence (like Lou Diamond Philips) this destroys the story. I have sought out and listened to more McDonald and he is good.. Wish he could re-read all the ones Phillips has mutilated..
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Ryan saves the world (again) .....

Almost as good as Patriot Games
As with a lot of Tom Clancy it takes a while to wind up and has some very slow portions but that's the price you pay for a well developed story. Well worth it. Best Narrator so far on the Jack Ryan series.
