by doing a pretty good job and covering the right blend of techno thriller, big political view and guys at the sharp end providing intelligence or intel Jack Ryan Sr is President the polar opposite of Trump and his son, Jack Jr, is part of a covert team that is off the Government books gathering intelligence but with a range of capabilities Jack Sr is dealing with a number of issues that seem to have been generated from abroad, but is not sure what the big plan is Meanwhile his son and his colleagues are chasing down gun runners and agents and locating pieces of the big picture jigsaw.There is some kind of world changing event coming, but who is responsible, who is the target and can it be stopped.Marc Cameron has revived my faith in these books somewhat He holds together a fast paced story pretty well and avoids some of the traps other authors have fallen into He leaves a couple of threads dangling a flu crisis that is pretty soon pushed into the background but pretty much ties this up in a satisfying way flag 5 likesLike see review Dec 18, 2018 Will rated it really liked it Shelves military action, political intrigue, thriller SUBJECT READER REVIEW WITH PLOT SPOILERS

Office was unique because of the dastardly storyline Marc Cameron put together the Russians up the ante on deniable plausibility by losing a couple of anti ballistic missiles Now on the surface this didn t shake my world, not until the best minds in government finally figured pointed out by a midshipman that if one single satellite in low earth orbit were to, say, be obliterated the shrapnel space junk would likely disable every LEO satellite within two weeks All business and entertainment comms go poof Now the spooks might rely on geosynchronous orbiting satellites for the key systems, but any traversing low earth would likely kill any launched vehicle Interesting that Reagan brought the Russians to their knees in fear of ABMs remember SDI, Star Wars , refusing to move that option off the table in exchange for arms reductions That was a bitter, bitter pill for the Russkies to swallow, and they obviously ain t forgot about it, according to Cameron Operation AVIDA, where the 51T6 Gorgon anti ballistic missile targets a key US LEO satellite, say like a Keyhole or its successor Orion, and the kinetic energy blows it to smithereens, is played out by unlikely bedfellows The Russians give the conn to GRU to lose the ABMs, specifically to an apparent Iranian dissident Reza Kazem, who utilizes a clearly excited Ayatollah to launch the two missiles from Iran s Mashhad Air Base The ABM misses the satellite by a shade of gray, or silk degrees, when Jack Jr figures it all out, calls it in and the powers that be figure out which satellites would be most likely targets One of the ABMs successfully launches, and the USAF Satellite Control Network engages repositioning thrusters two minutes following launch It woulda been a dastardly thing indeed to allow a thermonuclear device to detonate in low earth orbit, but the Russkies knew that d kill their own ops, so no magic codes The ABM was to be a kinetic energy weapon that would obliterate anything traveling at full thrust Two things of personal interest happened in the book Jack Jr s mind won t allow him to perceive Campus Transportation Director Lisanne Robertson, the later day Adara Sherman, as the smoking hot fearless but approachable woman she is because of Hendley Associates official policy on fraternizing Well, Ding Chavez hooked up with Adara without either getting fired, so you gotta pay to play, and Junior knows it and is trying to ignore the denial Helping this somewhat was when the Hendley enablers were playing small fry games in Portugal Spain when old flame Ysabel Kashani calls Junior in a tizzy, tipping off the first of the clues to Operation AVIDA Of course Junior goes to hell, otherwise known as Afghanistan, to glimpse and clutch her once again, but by the time he and Ding get there, the proverbial shit has hit the fan No time for romance when everyone except the SVR espionage traitor is trying to kill you Read Oath of Office and enjoy your time with the Tom Clancy Universe It s

was rescued,and her father went so far as to hire ex SAS bodyguards for her, and suggested Jack jr leave her alone because him being around put her in danger now she shows up working for the U.N in Afghanistan for some Anti Drug smuggling commission,close to the Iranian border,and basically on her own one local bodyguard an Unescorted Muslim woman in a third world country that has a sordid history on it s treatment of women and women s rights in general.what is that her idea of hiding in plain sight the only reason Jack went to Afghanistan was her calling for Erick she later has a minute emotional breakdown of her perceived issue of him abandoning her, and disappearing from her lifefusing to acknowledge the fact that it was her own father who suggested to Jack that was in her best interests then at the end , when all is said and done , she announces she is going to work in Russia Not because of Erick, just Becauseess the employment opportunities at the U.N are extremely flexible Mary Pat Foley tells Ryan Sr This Erick is our greatest penetration into Russian Intelligence since CARDINAL so WHY would the Director of national Intelligence risk their best newest assets exposure by being close to an Iranian who is basically as far as Iran is concerned, an Enemy of the state , and whom the Russians would turn over to Tehran in a Heartbeat am I overstating the guilt by

Tom Clancy Either the author is getting better at writing in the TC vein or I m starting to accept a lesser standard that that established by TC himself.More Russian plots against the West using stolen nuclear missiles Keeping up with all the characters and their allegiances is a bit difficult at times but overall the story is an acceptable thriller and provides some reading enjoyment flag

chapter, everyone knew about it, even though there was no dialog indicating that the information had been communicated Then, there s the problem with Jack Jr being indestructible In every book, he

    1. I had than a few reservations when I initially heard that Tom Clancy s bestselling Jack Ryan series was going to continue after his death as the potential for it to completely ruin one of the most respected thriller franchises of all time was rather high but actually it paid off for author Marc Cameron You never know what to expect in this situation but you can tell that Cameron has carried out meticulous research in order to make an action packed story that moves at breakneck speed as rea I ha [...]


    2. The interwoven subplots, the pacing and the way the story slowly comes together and leads up to a tense, suspenseful fourth quarter, this book actually felt like Clancy himself could have written it But Cameron does it in half the length The book actually would have benefited if the subplots with the senator, the stand off in Cameroon, and a few others were given attention, but better to have too little than risk having too much going and dragging the book out Cameron is definitely a gre The in [...]


    3. This is a continuation of the Jack Ryan Series started by Tom Clancy This is March Cameron s second book in the series.The book is well written The story twists and turns and the suspense builds throughout the story There are multiple plots and subplots along with many characters in the Clancy tradition Jack Ryan is president and Russia, along with Iran is giving him problems If you are looking for a good get away from it all book, this is it.I read this as an audiobook downloaded from Audi This [...]


    4. Number twenty six in the Jack Ryan series Interestingly enough, thirteen written by the man himself and now the thirteenth written by other authors And, despite the cover blurb of Inspiration for the thrilling TV series Jack Ryan this is the original book timeline and not the complete re imagining of the TV series which I liked by the way Mark Greaney did a very good job at writing the post Clancy books and quite a few other authors have done average to poor jobs And now we have the firs Number [...]


    5. SUBJECT READER REVIEW WITH PLOT SPOILERS FOLLOWS Completely ignoring all the plot twists that predominated the first part of the book, Oath of Office was unique because of the dastardly storyline Marc Cameron put together the Russians up the ante on deniable plausibility by losing a couple of anti ballistic missiles Now on the surface this didn t shake my world, not until the best minds in government finally figured pointed out by a midshipman that if one single satellite in low earth orb SUBJEC [...]


    6. Knew it was coming one day After Tom Clancy passed, they tried to keep the gravy train going and frankly, several of the books were very good But as teh Campus Jack Ryan Jr series quickly fell to a poor level, it was clear the Jack Ryan series was doomed This was the version that ended it for me, cluttered, choppy with no real direction or sense of intrigue Oath of Office is the biggest loser of the 26 volume series.And with this, I m out Christmas used to be a time to devour the latest fro Knew [...]
