There’s a new strong man in Russia but his rise to power is based on a dark secret hidden decades in the past. The solution to that mystery lies with a most unexpected source, President Jack Ryan.
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 Jack Ryan, Jr. 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. 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 nation’s economic fortune. A rich deposit of valuable minerals have been found in the Hermit Kingdom. Coupled with their 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.
The newest electrifying thriller in the #1 New York Times—bestselling series has President Jack Ryan and his allies facing a treacherous foe threatening to unleash chaos around the globe…
When Russian President Valeri Volodin’s ambitions are foiled in Dagestan, he faces a difficult choice. The oligarchs who support him expect a constant flow of graft, but with energy prices cratering, the Russian economy sputters to a virtual halt. Unable to grow the Russian market at home, his hold on power relies on expansion abroad — a plan that has been thwarted by the United States in the past.
But this time Volodin has determined that an indirect approach is the best. A floating natural gas facility in Lithuania is blown up. A Venezuelan prosecutor is assassinated. A devastating attack on a Russian troop train kills dozens. A chaotic world is the best camouflage for a series of seemingly unrelated attacks.
Only one man recognizes an ominous pattern in the reports of terror from around the globe. U.S. President Jack Ryan sees a guiding hand in the worldwide chaos, but before he can act he needs proof.
While his intelligence agencies race to uncover the truth behind the attacks, the President struggles to unite a fractious and distrustful coalition of Western nations against the schemes of the Russian dictator.
With five thousand Russian troops poised to invade a NATO nation, can Jack Ryan move swiftly enough to stop Volodin’s grand plan of global conflict and conquest? Or will he succeed in changing the balance of world power forever?

Лебединая песнь великого Тома Клэнси и самая масштабная компиляция всех жутких историй о России последнего десятилетия в одном флаконе! Леденящие портки истории про Эстонию, Крым, полоний, секретные капиталы КГБ, vory v zakone и siloviky (в русском языке, как известно, нет не только слова «свобода», но и единственного числа) вообще и злого президента Пути… Володина в частности и в особенности. I mnogo, mnogo russkikh slov translitom. А также еще больше качаний головой и пожиманий плечами.
В память о номерных колхозах, спецназе с опознавательными татуировками и завоевавшем Россию китайце Чингисхане, на злобу дня и просто по приколу. Ибо, читая эту книгу, я понимаю чувства того Рабиновича, который любил читать антисемитскую литературу. Почитаешь наше — кругом враги, кругом жЫды, нас всех предали и сдали с потрохами, бандиты, менты хуже всяких бандитов… А здесь… Россия вертит кого хочет на чем хочет и как хочет, запросто отключает газ всей Европе, ФСБ травит диссидентов прямо в Белом доме, по российскому ТВ несут любой бред, и весь мир верит, а американцам — нет, и даже российское военное вторжение приходится срывать не американскими танками с суперброней и мегаснарядами, а… Впрочем, читайте сами чем. Уверяю, такой поворот событий забудется нескоро.
Спи спокойно, дорогой Том, вечный клюквороб-стахановец. Ты умер, но дело твое живет! Твои произведения и твое творчество очень много дали нам, и мы будем с благодарностью вспоминать это. Мы помянем тебя самоваром водки, а медведи дадут троекратный залп из Калашниковых в твою честь!

A newly belligerent Chinese government leaves US President Jack Ryan with only a few desperate options in this continuation of the #1 New York Times bestselling Tom Clancy series.
Jack Ryan is dealing with an aggressive challenge from the Chinese government. Pawns are being moved around a global chessboard: an attack on an oil platform in Africa, a terrorist strike on an American destroyer and a storm tossed American spy ship that may fall into Chinese hands. It seems that President Zhao is determined to limit Ryan's choices in the upcoming G20 negotiations.
But there are hints that there's even more going on behind the scenes. A routine traffic stop in rural Texas leads to a shocking discovery — a link to a Chinese spy who may have intelligence that lays bare an unexpected revelation. John Clark and the members of the Campus are in close pursuit, but can they get the information in time?
Marine officer. CIA analyst. President. Jack Ryan has devoted his life to protecting the United States. What if this time, he can’t? President Ryan and the Campus return in the latest entry in Tom Clancy’s #1 New York Times-bestselling series.
Freedom may have finally arrived in Iran. As protests break out across the country, the media rejoices over the so-called Persian Spring. Western leaders are ecstatic. Members of Congress and the Cabinet clamor to back the rebels. Only President Jack Ryan remains wary.
Meanwhile, he has plenty to handle at home. A deadly strain of flu is ravaging the United States as spring floods decimate the Southeast. An unethical senator wants to bring down the Ryan presidency and is willing to lean on fabricated bot-planted stories to do it.
But the scariest story is the most closely guarded one. Two Russian nuclear missiles have been hijacked. The Campus gets their first break when Jack Junior connects with a rogue Russian intelligence officer in Afghanistan — only to be abducted soon after arriving. John Clark and the rest of the Campus team race to track the missiles and rescue their colleague.
As sensationalized stories spin out of control and the stolen missiles remain out of reach, President Ryan’s toughest challenge emerges: How do you meet an enemy head on, when he won’t even show you his face?
