Publisher's Summary

The United States has stared down many threats with President Jack Ryan at the helm, but what if he’s not there when we need him? That’s the question facing a nation in the most shocking entry in Tom Clancy's number one New York Times best-selling series.

A shadowy billionaire uses his fortune to further his corrupt ambitions. Along the way, he’s toppled democratically elected governments and exacerbated divisions within stable nations. The competitors he’s destroyed, the people he’s hurt, they’re all just marks on a ledger. Now, he’s ready to implement his most ambitious plan of all. There’s only one force standing in his way - President Jack Ryan.

How do you compel a man like Jack Ryan to bend? He’s personally faced down everything from the Russian navy to cartel killers. It will take more than political headwinds or media disfavor to cause him to turn from his duty to the American people, but every man has an Achilles heel. Jack Ryan’s is his family.

The answer is as simple as it is shocking. The billionaire has assembled an international team of the most ruthless mercenaries alive. Their mission - kidnap the First Lady.

Just spent the day absorbing this Novel, Fantastic

Tom would be so proud to see how his characters have grown... I can't wait for the next Jack Ryan, Jack Ryan Jr, Campus Novel... Thanks to Scott for his voice acting which makes the story come alive!

Disappointed

Little real action. Little real intrigue. Not a good legacy book. I waited a long time for this.

Sooo disappointingly.

Just a constant description of chasing and weapons. No story, no love for Jack Ryan. Narration was done as if every line was the climax. No ups and downs. No story, just bs. So disappointing.

Another great entry in this series.

The FFirst Lady keeps a cool head in this situation, and Jack makes the right decisions in the crisis. Scott once again does an excellent narration performance, with the right tones, accents and more.

GET A NEW WRITER!

This was damn weak and so disappointing. it would be getting ripped a lot harder if not for a Jack Ryan novel. Lame story. disjointed. Thin characters. Just a mess. I never really connected with anything. It's time for Cameron to go. Brick is always good.

Best in series for the last several years.

I have read and listened to the entire Jack Ryan series several times. It’s the best in the series since Command Authority in 2014. My only critique would be that the ending seemed abrupt. There was a lot more to the story that needed to be told.

GREAT JACK RYAN BOOK!!

Another Jack Ryan book that takes so many twist & turns that keeps you on the edge of seat to the end. It's the kind of book that keeps up listening day & all through the night!! Takes you all around the world & back to DC. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

The first Jack Ryan novel that I've returned.

Where do I start with this review? Have you ever read a book or watched a movie and at the end you feel dirty for the experience? I've heard all of the Jack Ryan novels here on audible. Tom Clancy's stories were well written and featured good narattion. I felt that Mark Greaney stories were the highlight of the series. This Chain of Command story has a good premise, but Cameron continuously ambushed the story line by wandering off topic. I suspect that he thought that he were adding backstory, but it comes across as sapping and most times irrelevant. I generally like Brick's narration, but in this story, his emotional readings nearly made me sick to the stomach. You have sappy writing and a skilled narrator trying to cover the sappy writing with over-dramatization ... a very poor mixture. The last 1/4 of the story was 100% predictable. Yes, most books are a little predictable by the end because the motives, key players, and backstory are well understand by that point. However, this story reads as if Mr. Cameron extinguished his creative juices 3/4 into the story and just wanted to end the misery that he knowingly created. Or, maybe his editor said, "enough is enough" and told Mr. Cameron to wrap it up as quickly as possible. In any case, I am greatly disappointed in this book and believe it to be unworthy of the Tom Clancy franchise. The only recommendation that I have for this book is how not to write a novel.

best, Jack Ryan novel yet

Scott, brick is the best. narrator that I listen to, hands down. Jack, Ryan novel was so good. The only thing I don't like is that I have to wait another year for the next one.

Disappointed

This is the first book in the Campus novels that I was disappointed in. This had the makings to be a great story but was a huge anti-climatic let down.
