The gripping new thriller in Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan Jr series
On an abandoned ranch in Argentina, a team of elite counter-terror commandos prepare to assault a newly-discovered Hezbollah hideout.
What they don't expect is to be brutally ambushed themselves - slaughtered with no survivors.
And they don't realise that, on screens around the world, the enemies of the West are watching.
Back in Washington DC, the growing obstruction in the Senate has reached crippling levels, as a crucial treaty to strengthen NATO in Eastern Europe is inexplicably blocked. Suspecting that key politicians may have been compromised - but aware of the explosive consequences of making such accusations in public - the President dispatches Jack Ryan Jr to Poland to investigate.
In Warsaw, Jack partners with beautiful and brilliant Polish agent Liliana Pilecki, and it's not long before they find evidence of a tangled web of corruption. But what Jack and Liliana don't realise is that this conspiracy stretches further than they could ever have imagined, and the danger has already crept terrifyingly close to home...
Mike Maden grew up working in the canneries, feed mills and slaughterhouses of California's San Joaquin Valley. A lifelong fascination with history and warfare ultimately lead to a Ph.D. in political science focused on conflict and technology in international relations. Like millions of others, he first became a Tom Clancy fan after reading The Hunt for Red October, and began his published fiction career in the same techno-thriller genre, starting with Drone and the sequels, Blue Warrior, Drone Command and Drone Threat. He's honored to be joining "The Campus" as a writer in Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, Jr., series.
