Light troops - an Eleven-Bravo light infantryman, according the United States Army's MOS (military occupational specialty) system - are supposed to be "pretty" spit-and-polish troops with spotless uniforms and clean-shaven faces, but First Sergeant Sam Driscoll wasn't one of those anymore, and hadn't been for some time.

Tom Clancy Brings Together His Greatest Fictional Characters
To Jointly Face the Threat of Modern Terrorism


Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the "Campus" - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy.  But what Ryan doesn't know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus.  While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

The Campus has now turned their sights on the Emir, the number one terrorist threat to western civilization.  A reclusive figure and mastermind of vicious terrorist acts, the Emir has eluded capture by the world's law enforcement agencies.  But now - with the help of ex-CIA agent John Clark and protégé Marine Colonel Ding Chavez - the Campus is in on the hunt.  The mission: to bring the Emir in - dead or alive.

TOM CLANCY'S GREATEST
CHARACTERS FACE THEIR
DEADLIEST CHALLENGE.


After almost a decade, Tom Clancy - the acknowledged master of international intrigue and nonstop military action - returns to the world he knows better than anyone: a world of chaos, caught in the crossfire of politics and power, placed on the edge of annihilation by evil men.

But there are other men who are honor-bound to stop the bloodshed and protect their homeland - by any means necessary....


It is called the Campus.  It was secretly created under the administration of President Jack Ryan, its sole purpose to hunt down, locate, and eliminate terrorists and those who protect them, at will, without sanction or oversight.  A self-sufficient entity, it has no official connection to the American government - a necessity in a time when those in power consider themselves above such arcane concepts as loyalty, justice, and right or wrong.

Covert intelligence expert Jack Ryan Jr. and his compatriots at the Campus have waged this silent war in every corner of the world.  Now joined by two of his father's closest allies, black ops warriors John Clark and "Ding" Chavez, as well as Brian and Dominic Caruso and Mary Pat Foley, the Campus has come up against its greatest foe: a sadistic killer known as the Emir.

The mastermind of countless horrific attacks, the Emir has eluded capture by every law enforcement agency in the world - a fact that the Campus is determined to change.  But his greatest devastation is yet to be unleashed, as he plans a monumental single strike that will destroy the heart of America, unless the Campus can take him, dead or alive.
(Continued on back flap)



Back flap:

(Continued from front flap)

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

Together for the first time, an all-star cast of Tom Clancy's characters races to ensure the nation's survival and to complete their mission: the desperate search for a madman who may be hiding in plain sight.

Thirty years ago TOM CLANCY was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history.  Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore's Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel.  His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it "the perfect yarn."  Since then Clancy has established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense.

GRANT BLACKWOOD, a U.S. Navy veteran, spent three years aboard a guided missile frigate as operations specialist and pilot rescue swimmer.  He is coauthor, with Clive Cussler, of the New York Times bestsellers Spartan Gold and Lost Empire.  He is also the author of the Briggs Tanner series - The End of Enemies, The Wall of Night, and An Echo of War.  He lives in Colorado.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
