Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Jack Ryan’s 13th adventure is published posthumously for Clancy died last month. Jack is the USA’s President serving his second term. His son, Jack Ryan Jr, is following his father’s footsteps and learning to be an intelligence analyst. He is currently posted to the city of London. The lad is investigating a Russian energy company. The search goes back to a time when Ryan senior was an agent so we get a dual-time adventure. If you put this down, and sadly the length, over 700 pages, demands that you do then it may take you a paragraph or two to place which Ryan you are following once you return! This is my only quibble for this is truly compulsive, mostly credible and certainly thriller stuff. It is almost as if Clancy kept the best for his swan song for it is an excellent read.

If you like Tom Clancy you might also like to read books by David Baldacci, Brad Thor and Brett Battles.

Synopsis

Command Authority by Tom Clancy

Command Authority sees the return of Tom Clancy's greatest hero, Jack Ryan. 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 clue to the mystery lies with a most unexpected source: President Jack Ryan. Tom Clancy's Command Authority is a brand new full-throttle all-action adventure for 2013. It follows Threat Vector and Locked On as the newest Jack Ryan novel. Praise for Tom Clancy: There's hardly another thriller writer alive who can fuel an adrenaline surge the way Clancy can . (Daily Mail). Exhilarating. No other novelist is giving so full a picture of modern conflict . (Sunday Times). Thirty years ago Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore's Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted on to the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it 'the perfect yarn'. From that day forward, Clancy established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. He passed away in October 2013. Mark Greaney has a degree in international relations and political science and is pursuing his master's in intelligence studies with a concentration in criminal intelligence. He is the author of The Gray Man, On Target, and Ballistic.
