Ryan is right to wonder. For even while Russian investigators pursue the case, and some of his most trusted eyes and ears - including antiterrorism specialist John Clark - head to Moscow, forces in China are moving ahead with a plan of truly audacious proportions. Tired of what they view as the presumption of the West, eager to fulfill their destiny, they are taking matters into their own hands. If they succeed, the world as we know it will never look the same. If they fail...the consequences may be unspeakable.
Blending the exceptional realism and authenticity that are his hallmarks with intricate plotting, razor-sharp suspense, and a remarkable cast of characters, this is Clancy at his best - and there is none better.
"Frank Muller puts out an amazing performance, whipping off endless Chinese and Russian names - even in dialogue - as if they were his native tongue." (AudioFile)
"When the door blows open and the shooting starts, nobody does it better than Tom Clancy." (The Dallas Morning News)

Another Tom Clancy Classic
Ryan makes another appearance in this Tom Clancy novel. The build up and creating the atmosphere of the problems that Ryan face is tremendous. The description of what takes place on the boarders of China and Russia is fantastic. It was a good read.

Clancy's World is Fun
In Clancy's World, Jack Ryan is president, and man are we ever glad. The Russian's are our friends, the Chinese are our enemy, and even some of the people we think of as our friends, like India, simply are not as great as we'd like them to be. Clancy spins a web where the asian continent would like nothing more than to dominate the west, and would do so through the taking of the world's oil supplies. The premise of the book, a conflict between Russia (the Bear) and China (the Dragon) and the entry of the U.S. on the side of the Bear makes for an enjoyable read. If you like living in Tom Clancy's world, you'll like the technical details and the spying that goes on in this book. It is yet another reason to be glad Tom Clancy is on our side.

Good, once you get over the Narrator's voice!
This was my first audiobook download, and at first I must say, I was dissapointed! Straight away the Narrator's way he ended the sentences struck a nerve and I thought I'd give up after a few minutes.
I stuck with it over my 45min journey, and although I found it slow going to begin, the story got good enough to over-power my opinion of the Narrator.
Once into the story, I really enjoyed it! I found the Narration got better as the book progressed, and I really looked forward to the next time I got to listen. Overall it was a positive experience, but I can see how others don't like the Narration.
