Description

Tom Clancy returns with a #1 New York Times bestseller that will remind readers why he is the acknowledged master of international intrigue and nonstop military action.
 
It is The Campus. Secretly created under the administration of President Jack Ryan, its sole purpose is to eliminate terrorists and those who protect them. Officially, it has no connection to the American government—a necessity in a time when those in power consider themselves above such arcane ideals as loyalty, justice, and right or wrong.

Now covert intelligence expert Jack Ryan Jr. and his compatriots at The Campus—joined by black ops warriors John Clark and “Ding” Chavez—have come up against their greatest foe: a sadistic killer known as the Emir. Mastermind of countless horrific attacks, the Emir has eluded capture by every law enforcement agency in the world. But his greatest devastation is yet to be unleashed as he plans a monumental strike at the heart of America.

On the trail of the Emir, Jack Ryan Jr. will find himself following in his legendary father’s footsteps on a manhunt that will take him and his allies across the globe, into the shadowy arenas of political gamesmanship, and back onto U.S. soil in a race to prevent the possible fall of the West…

  • Wow!

    This is the second Clancy book I've read and all I can say is wow, he grabs you, hooks you and then plays your emotions like a violin. I shed a tear at the "death", almost like I had skin in the game. Great book, great read!

    Great book but a little bit long thought. Good to see key characters back such as: John Clark and Ding Chavez.
  • Wasn't boring

    Certainly helped pass the time. But I would never recommend it to anyone. I was also weirded out about torture stuff.
  • Great plot, but cumbersome writing style

    Clancy lovers beware, the narrative and writing style of the co-author is mind numbingly cumbersome. His style almost ruins a good plot.
  • G.O.A.T

    I always like reading Tom Clancy's books. Its written so you are in the middle of what is happening. Wish he would come out with some other Net Force books. Keep writing and i will keep reading.
  • Definitely not a Clancy book

    Oh, Tom Clancy... What happened to you? You used to be such an amazing author, but your stuff has become nigh unreadable. See exhibit A: "He reached the corner and stopped, weapon held in the Weaver stance double-handed grip, barrel pointed downward. Not like Hollywood or cop TV shows, he thought, where they carried the gun pointed barrel-up beside their faces. Sure, it looked cool... but this wasn't about cool, this was about staying alive and putting down the bad guys." Seriously, did you have a stroke? Sigh... At least we'll always have "The Hunt For Red October" and "Without Remorse," Tom.
  • One of the best books TC has given us!!!
