Publisher's Summary

Jack Ryan, Jr., will do anything for a friend, but this favor will be paid for in blood in the latest electric entry in the number-one New York Times best-selling series.

Jack Ryan, Jr., would do anything for Ding Chavez. That's why Jack is currently sitting in an open-air market in Israel, helping a CIA team with a simple job. The man running the mission, Peter Beltz, is an old friend from Ding's Army days. Ding hadn't seen his friend since Peter's transfer to the CIA 18 months prior, and intended to use the assignment to reconnect. Unfortunately, Ding had to cancel at the last minute and asked Jack to take his place. 

It's a cushy assignment - a trip to Israel in exchange for a couple hours of easy work, but Jack could use the downtime after his last operation. Jack is here merely as an observer, but when he hastens to help a woman and her young son, he finds himself the target of trained killers. Alone and outgunned, Jack will have to use all his skills to protect the life of the child.

Bentley did a great job!

Don’t know if Audible will post this or not. They’re hold my reviews and edits for a minimum of a week or more. Anyway, if they do post this I give this book my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!
Scott Brick’s narration is flawless.
Thank You for reading this review.

A bidge to far

I have read everything that Tom Clancy had written and all the books that came after his death, The lack of the rest of the characters in the Clancy universe in this book very much hurt the quality of the story. Too much was asked of one character that leads to the most impossible-to-believe story even for the Clancy universe. I wanted to believe, but this one just left me shaking my head. Of course Scott Brick once again brought the story to life even with all the improbable action.

Poor Excuse for a Jack Ryan Novel

I was looking forward to the release of this book, only to be severely disappointed. It is by far my least favorite in the JRJ universe. Scott Brick almost makes up for the poor content with his performance, but not quite. I disliked this installment from the beginning to the end. I am usually immersed in the books to the point that I don't notice errors, but the pace in this one is so off putting that I noticed multiple errors. This definitely decreased my enjoyment of the book. Most of the extremely positive reviews were posted within 24 hours of its release, so I am of the mind that they are the authors friends and/or from the publishing company. Rarely do I dislike a book enough to write a review, and I currently have almost 600 audio books in my library. Save your credit.

EXCELLENT LISTEN

When you combine an awesome well written story with the narration by Scott Brick you have one of the best books I have listened to in a very long time. I strongly recommend this listen to everyone.

Forgettable, zero character development...

There was a great concept here, but a weak actual story. Tons of mindless action with zero character development. Just Jack Jr being overly boy scout-ish. He never makes any hard or smart decisions. Don is a good writer, but not with characters or story. I'll give him another shot, but I'd be open to another new writer.

Brick gave a good read.

Less is more

Having read Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan books for years and year and years...whenever a new writer appears, I am concerned. Foremost, continue writing the principals true to character. On this point, kudos to Don Bentley. The first chapters are steady as you go. Very nice story and action. Unfortunately, as you get deeper into the book and especially in the last 20 chapters, we're completely off the rails with way too many subplots and new characters, and the JRJ scenes are definitely a cause for "eye-rolling." As you read a book, especially a series in which you're invested, you see the scenes in your head and in a good book, everything makes sense. I look forward to reading Mr. Bentley's next offering, hoping everything will make sense.

Exceptional! Stunning!

This book was exceptional!

Don Bentley did an excellent job of taking over the franchise.

The book was fast moving and action packed. Don Bentley's experience in combat came through.

I enjoyed Jack being on his own , and getting into his head for a change.

I even had tears in my eyes with the message Jnr sent his dad and with Daisy the pilot. Well done!

Poor Jnr really got worked over!

Scott Brick is THE BEST narrator and there is no one who can bring Jnr to life like him.

A winning combination!

It is going to be a looong wait for the next one!

Forget this one. A terrible example .

The only reason I gave this a two-star rating for the overall performance was because of Scott Brick. The Clancy Estate must be hard up for money for letting a preconceived amateur like Bentley write an episode involving Jack Ryan Junior. Some of the situations were totally unbelievable at least in previous books there was some sense of reality in the writings but not here. He made Jack Ryan look like a blundering idiot.

This guy must be from the Lee Child school of writing as there were many instances where it was obvious that he was just trying to fill in to get some words on paper to create volume.

This is the first time I put down a Clancy book because of the frustrations with the story. The only reason in going back was because of Scott Brick at least try to make it entertaining.

If I see his name again, I may get the book and if there is no substantial improvement that will be the last Clancy book, I'll will purchase written by this so-called author.
