Even though he's on forced leave from the clandestine intelligence group known as The Campus, Jack Ryan, Jr., still finds himself caught in the crosshairs after an attempt on his life is thwarted when he turns the tables on his would-be dispatcher. Convinced that the attack is linked to his recent covert actions with the convalescing Iranian national Ysabel Kashini, Jack sets out to find out who wants him dead - and why. Using clues found on the now dead assassin, Jack pursues the investigation, following a growing trail of corpses to the European Union's premier private security firm, Rostock Security Group, and its founder, Jurgen Rostock - a former general in the German Special Forces Command. Without any Campus resources, Jack launches his own shadow campaign to uncover the truth about Rostock and a long-running false-flag war of terror that has claimed thousands of lives. Yet all of that bloodshed is but a precursor to a coming catastrophic event that will solidify Rostock's place among the global powers - an event that Jack must stop at any cost.

Jack Ryan Jr. is a little off his game in this book. Without Google earth, GPS and tracking devices Jack would still be wondering who wanted him dead. To be honest I didn’t care. I miss the old Jack Ryan.

Shouldn't have wasted my time. Jack travels the globe, literally stumbling from one incident to another... With no plan or job, where's the money coming from?

A continuation of Clancy's Campus series, carried on since his passing. The characters remain a pale shadow compared to the older characters, and that will never change. This one features Jack Ryan Jr., on leave from the Campus group, facing a direct threat to his own life that leads to a proverbial wolf in sheep's clothing and a shadowy group of special operators.

If Jack Jr had made a phone call to a couple of his former associates the book could have been 250 pages shorter, and should have been.
Clancy is probably rolling in his grave.

Not worth the time. Poor plot and worse dialog. Ònce I read a harlequin romance out of curiosity and it had better plot and dialog than this. For example: "Rene lay in a pool of blood". I thought that the next chapter would start with "it was a dark and stormy night". I read the book in about 6 hours and would have been better to go for a walk in in tha sun.

Off the record only means as much as a journalist integrity weighs.
