Publisher's Summary

Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.
Meanwhile, Chinese cyber-warfare experts have launched a devastating attack on American infrastructure. It's a new combat arena, but it’s every bit as deadly as any that has gone before. Jack Ryan, Jr., and his colleagues at the Campus may be just the wild card that his father needs to stack the deck. There's just one problem: someone knows about the off-the-books intelligence agency and threatens to blow their cover sky high.

A great Tom Clancy!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book is very easy to listen to - so perfect for doing two things at once, in my case listening and crafting. If you have seen any of the Tom Clancy films with different actors playing Jack Ryan it is simply a case of picking your favourite 'Jack' and then imagining his son in action.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Threat Vector?

There is an action scene where a key character realises that there are more than two parties involved in an event and he is the only person who has oversight of the actions of the different groups and what is about to take place.


What about Lou Diamond Phillips’s performance did you like?

Good, clear narration - not too slow but well enunciated.


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Jack's Back!


Any additional comments?

Have purchased several of the Tom Clancy books, all ready by Lou Diamond Phillips as preferred his narration from the samples, and was not disappointed.

Excellent

Would you consider the audio edition of Threat Vector to be better than the print version?

Not read the printed version, but then again why would I, when the audio is so good. Lou Diamond Philips does an excellent job.


What other book might you compare Threat Vector to, and why?

This is classic Tom Clancey, even if it was probably written by Mark Greaney. All the usual characters appear , Ryan, Clarke, Ding etc. along with some new additions. The storyline is fast paced and exciting. As you would expect from a Tom Clancey novel the technical data is spot on.


Which scene did you most enjoy?

The scene when the American pilots go up against the Chinese is fantastic real edge of the seat stuff.


Any additional comments?

Overall I would recommend Vector Threat to any Tom Clancey fan.
