MASTER OF EXPLOSIVE
INTERNATIONAL INTRIGUE
TOM CLANCY
BRINGS TOGETHER
HIS GREATEST CHARACTERS
AND A NEW GENERATION
TO FIGHT THE WAR ON TERROR.


Although his father had been reluctant to become a field operative, Jack Ryan Jr. wants nothing more.  Privately training with a seasoned Special Forces drill instructor, he's honing his skills to transition his work within The Campus from intelligence-analysis to hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can - even as Jack Ryan Sr. campaigns for re-election as President of the United States.

But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and the personal have just become equally dangerous.  A devout enemy of Jack Sr. launches a privately funded vendetta to discredit him by connecting the presidential candidate to a mysterious killing in the past by John Clark, his longtime ally.  A shadowy mercenary team is dispatched to capture the former Navy SEAL.

With Clark on the run, it's up to Jack Ryan Jr., along with Ding Chavez, Dominic Caruso, and the rest of the Campus team, to stop a threat emerging in the Middle East: A corrupt Pakistani general has entered into a deadly pact with a fanatical terrorist to procure nuclear warheads, which can be used to blackmail any world power into submission.

With the breakneck speed and military action scenes that have made him the premier thriller writer of our time, Tom Clancy delivers a novel of high-tech warfare in which the enemy within may be even more devastating than the enemy without.

Back flap:

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.

MARK GREANEY has a degree in international relations and political science and is pursuing his master's in intelligence studies with a concentration in criminal intelligence.  He is the author of The Gray Man, On Target, and Ballistic.  In his research for these novels, he traveled to seven countries and trained alongside military and law enforcement in the use of firearms, battlefield medicine, and close-range combat tactics.

  • 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.
