A North Korean ICBM crashes into the Sea of Japan.  A veteran CIA officer is murdered in Ho Chi Minh City, and a package of forged documents goes missing.  The pieces are there, but assembling the puzzle will cost John Clark and his fellow Campus agents precious time.  Time they don't have.

The challenge facing President Jack Ryan is an old one, with a terrifying new twist.  While the international stalemate with North Korea continues into its seventh decade, a young, untested dictator is determined to prove his strength by breaking the deadlock.  Like his father before him, he hangs his plans on the country's nuclear ambitions.  Until now that program was impeded by a lack of resources.  However, there has been a dramatic change in the nations economic fortune.  A rich deposit of valuable minerals has been found in the Hermit Kingdom.  Coupled with its nuclear capabilities, the money from this find will make North Korea a dangerous force on the world stage.

There's just one more step needed to complete this perfect plan... the elimination of the President of the United States.

TOM CLANCY was the author of eighteen #1 New York Times - bestselling novels.  His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the bestseller list after President Ronald Reagan pronounced it "the perfect yarn."  Clancy was the undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense.  He died in October 2013.

MARK GREANEY has a degree in international relations and political science.  With Tom Clancy he is coauthor of Locked On, Threat Vector, and Command Authority.  He has written four books in his own Gray Man series.  In his research for these novels, he traveled to more than fifteen countries and trained alongside military and law enforcement in the use of firearms, battlefield medicine, and close-range combat tactics.

SCOTT BRICK has performed on film, television, and radio.  His stage appearances throughout the United Stares include Cyrano, Hamlet, and Macbeth.

  • 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.
