Not long ago Tom Clancy died. Like many of you I read each of his books as they came out. I enjoyed the story of jack Ryan as he moved through the ranks of government to the presidency.

It was a sad day when he passed. Other thriller writers have gone and their names continued along with others writing their series and or franchises.

Now Mark Greaney has picked up Tom Clancy's fallen banner so to speak and he's doing an excellent job.

Mark Greany is one of my favorite writers. His Gray man series i

Mark Greaney has done a bang up job on this Tom Clancy inspired book featuring Jack and Jack Jr Ryan. It grabbed my attention from the start and never let go! I am looking forward to his next Ryan father and son adventure,but in the meantime I will be reading his Gray Man series.

I have become a fan of Mark Greaney and enjoy reading the books that he has written under the Tom Clancy syndicate. Most of his books up to this point have been middle range books that have had good intrigue and lots of action. This is what I would consider a more daunting longer read epic in the style that Clancy made famous.

The story is well conceived and well written. It has that overarching epic feel of a huge political situation that has multiple fronts and threats that have to be analyzed

A timely story of intrigue based upon North Korea's ambition to become a nuclear power.

The young and untested leader of the north, suspiciously similar to Kim Jong-Un, tasks his minions to develop a nuclear missile program within three years. The stated aim is to force the U.S. and it's allies to soften restrictions on the beleagured country. The reality is a despot exerting his will to expand his own power.

I found the relationships between the dictator and his subjects to be of particular inte

What Mark Greaney has done to the world of Jack Ryan is nothing short of sacrilege. Gone are the carefully thought out and deftly interwoven plots of Tom Clancy, gone are the multitude of highly detailed characters, gone are the perfect understanding of the geopolitical situation of the Ryan universe.

What's left is yet another standard issue airport techno-thriller, and if I wanted that I'd read someone I actually like, like Dale Brown.

SUBJECTIVE READER REVIEW FOLLOWS:

For a couple of years now I've been wondering how Tom Clancy is still publishing from the after-life. It turns out that Clancy's last five books were 'written in collaboration with' Grant Blackwood, Peter Telep and Mark Greaney. A little snooping revealed that the collaborationists did most of the legwork, all of the travel and most of the geopolitical research. Now Mark Greaney's published two Tom Clancy books that he's written, has another one in the hopper and

I'm starting to wonder if Mark Greaney and Tom Clancy are blood-related, because Greaney has his writing style, he crosses every T and dots every I, it's unbelievable. Normally I don't like to continue a series written by an author that's passed and it picked up by someone else, but with Mark Greaney I'll make an exception.


When the new power-hungry supreme leader of North Korea wants to increase his country's Nuclear Weapons arsenal, but while it is being hindered by the US and it's allies, Kore

Another partial audiobook on YouTube. Why upload 3/4 of a book? Guess I will have to cough up the cash to finish and I think it will be worth it. "
President Jack Ryan faces a global threat on the verge of going nuclear.

A North Korean ICBM crashes into the Sea of Japan. A veteran CIA officer is murdered in Ho Chi Minh City. A package of forged documents goes missing. The pieces are there, but assembling the puzzle will cost Jack Ryan, Jr., and his fellow Campus agents precious time. Time they do

So, I'll admit it. I never read a Tom Clancy novel, but I loved the movie The Hunt for Red October for the twist. Then, being a huge Harrison Ford fan, the Jack Ryan movies were on my must see list.

Then came the aging of Harrison Ford - doesn't matter, I still love you Harrison - but the series pettered out with the character's election to President. So, I was intrigued when this popped up on Audible.

I'm glad to revisit the series. mark Greaney did a good job continuing the flavor of the other b

As with all the books in the Tom Clancy series, this one will not disappoint.

A well constructed plot, with in fact one main plot and few other secondary plots unfolding in the background will keep you on the edge. You'll find plenty of action, suspense, adventure, intricate geopolitical strategy, interesting characters, great locations, colorful scenes and much more, all this will definitely make you come back to see the outcome.

A great motion picture type of book, very entertaining, and worth

This gets 4 stars even though I can't even say how many times I wanted to put this in my DNF pile in the beginning. It was so heavy on the narrative for the set up. I only stayed with it because Scott Brick was the narrator. But I'm glad I stayed with it, because the last half was a page turner for me, even though the government couldn't seem to keep people alive.

What I liked most were the twists in the story and the character development. Those two things were well done.

The story of Jack Ryan, his son, John Clark and the gang continues, even after the unfortunate passing of the characters' creator. By this point it is hard to imagine that Tom Clancy was involved in the planning and development of these novels up to this point - although I'm sure keeping his name involved (as part of his franchise) means it will sell a whole lot more copies.

However, this story was actually quite good. Mark Greaney has done a remarkable job of taking the torch. And this particula

Full Force and Effect, reminds me of vintage Clancy. There are hints of the same command of detail and relentless pacing that we were treated to in Clear and Present Danger. Tom Clancy may have left his mortal body in 2013, but the soul of Clancy the epic storyteller lives on in Mark Greaney.
But one question for Mark Greaney, "Why all this temporal hop scotch in the beginning?" I can understand a prologue or a chapter or two of historical context to anchor the plot. But all this jumping back an

I really wanted to quit reading Tom Clancy after he died...but I just cant. Mark Greaney is really doing a nice job of continuing his legacy. Gone are the days of really in depth information on submarines or airplanes. Now its a bunch of chasing people around and entertaining gun fights. Its kind of become my guilty pleasure. After so many books you want to see what happens with so many characters you have gotten to know. I would like to say that this would be my last, but as soon as the next bo ...more

If I had any qualms at all about Mark Greaney continuing Tom Clancy's characters they are totally gone now.

This novel is as good as any of Clancy's best. I especially enjoyed the premise which was unique while also adding believability to the scenario. Totally captivated throughout and while you always know the good guys will win out - there was enough tension to not be sure how that was going to play out.

This is Tom Clancy's 6th novel based on the clandestine privately-funded American intelligence and special ops company called the "THE CAMPUS". The book was written after Tom Clancy's death by ghostwriter Mark Greaney.

The Campus was created by a former senator on the encouragement of President of The United States Jack Ryan (a former CIA director), during his earlier term as POTUS. His son, Jack Ryan, Jr. works there as an analyst/operator. In the 5 past novels, The Campus has been involved with

It amazes me how much better the Mark Greaney books are in comparison to the later Tom Clancy novels in this series. Whereas Clancy seemed to have lost his way and his understanding of the Geopolitics of the world, the newer novels definitely have their finger on the pulse of what is going on in our world. Full Force and Effect mirrors much of what is going on today with North Korea. In this novel, the North Korean dictator, a proxy for Kim Jong Un, is hell bent on getting ICBMs with nuclear cap ...more

It’s the Jack Ryans and the CAMPUS versus The Rocket Man(A clone copy of Kim), in this long espionage/military thriller epic which continued the Clancy legacy universe in 2014 after he died. Mr. Greaney’s attention to detail and ability to weave all the subplots & the buildups will keep any reader of this genre hooked till the end.

Don’t get me wrong, this does not read like an actual Clancy book from the 80s & 90s. People who want books like the ones Clancy wrote will have to only reread his c

Highly predictable Clancy-style book, Greaney definitely has the writing style and storytelling style down to make it seem like Clancy himself was involved. Story was still compelling and timely about North Korean shenanigans with a rare earth minerals mine worth trillions of dollars once it comes online and an assassination attempt on President Jack Ryan. Formula? Yes. Enjoyable and a good read? Yup, that too. Recommended.

As a Tom Clancy fan for his books, Mark Greaney delivers!

1) the author gracefully integrates multi-level, complex plots into one major plot that reveals North Korea's intention

2) the plot is action packed from beginning to end.

3) the book was technically long but not too long for integrating multiple major plots!

I read and liked many of Clancy’s novels – The Hunt for Red October (great), Patriot Games (very good), Clear and Present Danger, Cardinal of the Kremlin (both good), The Bear and the Dragon (passable), I forget if I read The Sum of All Fears. The only other one I started but got bored with was Debt of Honor, I think. I haven’t read any of the co-authored books because I have a bit of a prejudice against them. I think co-authored books are often a bad money-making scheme, bad in that they’re bad ...more

I'm not sure why I keep doing this to myself. The "franchise" has run its course. There isn't enough character development or meaningful dialogue to create tension when figures such as Ding Chavez and Sam Driscoll come under fire. In fact, Jack Ryan Sr. has become such a benign figure that the assassination plot scarcely moves the needle. John Clark is a mere shadow--and not just because he's aged. Sad "end" to some once-compelling characters. ...more

We got a bit more of Jack Ryan Sr than some of the more recent novels so that was nice. It felt a little more like the early Ryan books.
