Nov 26, 2019 rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
Just me thinking out loud here, but hasn't Jack Ryan been POTUS for a very, very long time?? Oh well, I guess even great books can have their flaws. This entry in the Tom Clancy series introduces us to Calliope, a next generation computer program that is creepily human in its behaviors. The Campus is called on once again to help save the world. John Clark ponders on the vagaries of life after being a Navy SEAL. If you are new to Clancy, start from the beginning with the Hunt For Red October. If ...more

I look forward to every one of these Ryanverse novels. No one will ever match Clancy himself.. but all these are still rather good.

#28 in the Jack Ryan universe (#3 authored by Marc Cameron). This 209 series entry by author Marc Cameron is a worthy addition. At 500 pages there are segments that could have been trimmed or excised, but in keeping with the philosophy of original author Tom Clancy, never tell anyone what time it is if you can tell them how to make a watch instead. Basically a tale of advanced AI technology hijacked by the Chinese and used against the US Navy. For such a terrifying weapon, apparently it was ...more

So, sometimes you find books that tickle your fancy and other times not so much.
However, with this said I did enjoy this one much better than I did Active Measures so with that I presume you'll want to know why?!
Well, the intensity was much more to my liking along with the characters and the plot with a setting that was not stagnant but ever changing throughout the scenes.
The plot enticed me to read on while captivating my interest and making me want to not just go along to get along but to get

I liked this Jack Ryan story as much as the others, BUT had a very hard time keeping all the foreign places and characters, and technical and military terms straight. Thank goodness for the list of Principal Characters at the front of the book, but a few more characters on the list and lists of technical and military terms would have saved me a lot of effort going backwards to find explanations. So not an easy book to read. Reminded me of The Hunt for Red October, the first Clancy book I read. I ...more

Cameron’s third Clancy follow-on book (and number 28 in the ongoing series) is a page turner in the tradition of many of its predecessors! This time Chinese actors (a PLA General) plot to steal AI gaming software to upload into US defense systems to start a war with the US. A complex web of related storylines converge between President Ryan, his wife (who assists in the eye surgery of a granddaughter of a PLA General), and Campus operatives to of course make things right and bring justice and ...more

I liked the focus on Ding — the portions focusing on him were a breath of fresh air. We get plenty of John Clark, Jack Ryan Sr./Jr. but compared too other offerings in recent year this addition was anemic.

I found the book almost whimsically plausible and ends a resolution akin to a warmed up dinner taken out of the microwave. I didn’t hate it. I also would not recommend it. Maybe at 33 I am aging out this style of techno thriller. Hopefully the Jack Ryan Jr. novel this summer is a great
Chris Garth
This series is beginning to read like a television crime procedural where everything always wraps up neatly in a bow at the end. The best part of Tom Clancy when he was alive was his ability to keep you hooked without predicting what would come next. In the 28th entry into Jack Ryan's world of global intrigue, there are some very cool surprises, that show Cameron is capeable of surprise, but not enough to make this book something I would recommend to another.

I received an ARC of this book as a gift with no strings. My copy is a pre-pub that hasn’t gone through final edits.

I have to say that Marc Cameron brings Tom Clancy’s characters and world alive and tells a great story based on possible political/social/technological developments we’re seeing today.

I’m no expert on Tom Clancy, but I’ve read and enjoyed some of his books and plan to read others. It’s good to see Cameron carry on the good work Clancy started.

Thanks for a great read.

Marc Cameron has nicely transitioned into the Tom Clancy novels, to add to his Jericho Quinn series. I really enjoyed this book and the continued story of Jack Ryan Sr. and Jr. and their progress in running the country, home and abroad. Cameron grabbed my interest from the beginning and held the suspense throughout, never having a drop in either action, suspense or continuing multiple storylines. Great job and great novel!!

Another solid entry in the Jack Ryan universe from Marc Cameron. Jack Sr, Clark and Chavez are the main characters with Jack Jr and the other Campus operators having smaller parts in the story. Cathy Ryan has a bigger part than usual. The story was a little too predictable to earn five stars so I’m giving it a four.
Dec 02, 2019 rated it it was amazing
Code of Honor was a great read. Tom Clancy was a special author that passed too soon. Marc Cameron has done another exemplary job and the plot flowed and built with very real intensity. You’ll find all the old characters in the Washington elite and go along on a suspenseful journey with “The Campus” operators. The story explored AI and cyber war scenarios in a very real and frightening way. Great read!
Linda Schmidt
Marc Cameron’s Tom Clancy’s Code of Honor features President Jack Ryan, his wife Cathy, as well as agent John Clark and his son-in-law Ding Chavez. These heroes interact with Chinese terrorists who use AI to take over American assets. Code of Honor is not only exciting, it is an eye-opening look at espionage and technology.

Jack Ryan, Jr. and the Campus team are on the go again, doing what they do best. This time, they are aided and abetted by the President's wife, Cathy, although not in a violent manner. How does Fr. Pat West, S. J., figure into the activities? Is computer gaming software getting too sophisticated? You be the judge.

Pure Tom Clancy!

I may be slightly prejudiced, as I've been a voracious reader of Tom Clancy for more than two decades, but this is but another homerun in the pantheon of Clancy novels. They just never get old.

Tom Clancy started the ball rolling and Marc Cameron has added his influence. I'm not sure if I can find a way to make the distinction between the two men.
Highly recommend reading this book.

Cameron has the characters of the Clancey atmosphere down Pat. This book could very well have been by the original author himself. It is full of spying, feelings, treason, violence and cliffhangers. Yup it is well worth some free time.

Enjoyed this yarn. As time has gone on the style of Marc Cameron's storytelling has gotten closer to that of the master and this was the best effort yet. Did a very good job of including all the characters we know and love

Good read but predictable

The Clancy books are becoming form efforts _ same story unfolds in a pattern. Revise the story to be unique.

Start of the book was a bit awkward and slow but built steadily to an engrossing spy novel. Thoroughly enjoyed it and finished reading it in under two days. Nice job Mr. Cameron!

You can hardly tell it's not Clancy writing. A great story with lifelike characters. I will be ready for the next book.
