Though his father had been reluctant to become a heroic field operative, Jack Ryan, Jr., wants nothing more...
Princely training with Special Forces, Jack Junior is honing his combat skills to continue his work within The Campus, limning down and eliminating terrorists wherever he canes= as Jack Ryan, Sr., campaigns to become President of the United States again.
But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and personal have just become equally dangerous. A devout enemy of Jack Senior launches a privately funded vendetta to discredit and connect him to a mysterious killing in longtime ally John Clark's past. All they have to do is catch him.
With Clark on the run, it's up to Jack Junior to stop a growing threat emerging in the Middle East, where a corrupt Pakistani brigadier general has entered into a deadly pact with a fanatical terrorist to procure two nuclear warheads they can use to blackmail any world power into submission -- or face annihilation.
