Jack Ryan Jr. is going out on an ordinary audit. Hendley and Associates, the investment firm that acts as cover for the Campus is looking to invest in a German company. Along for the ride is David Kraft a back office employee who will help run numbers, but is mostly useful to help carry Jack's bags. But all isn't what it seems. Kraft has a secret past. One that may be very much closer to the surface than it first appears, and one that has put both men in terrible danger.

I haven't read any Tom Clancy in ages. I picked this one up (by Mike Maden) and only then realized I had been so out of touch that the hero of this one is Jack Ryan Jr. and not his dad. It is an interesting read and the story was engaging. The ending was a bit abrupt, but that seems to be an industry standard these days - maybe publishers pushing authors to meet deadlines set many months in advance, who knows. One big disappointment with the ending, was a closure failure that address the relationship between Ryan and a lead character (female) in Singapore. While not essential to the story line, it certainly left a hole in the story. Anyway, this book was good enough that I will probably try another Clancy book or two to see if I really want to re-engage with him and 'must-read' author. Right now I am on the fence.

Another in the Campus series of posthumous Clancy novels, this has Jack Ryan Jr. paired with an accountant from the white side of the company on what's supposed to be an audit of another company in Singapore on behalf of a former Senator, but of course there are secrets and skulduggery along the way. And there are plot holes, as well as the simple fact that the young Jack just isn't as interesting as his father was as a character.

I did not care for this and stopped reading it halfway through. It was too heavy on techno/computer lingo which slowed the flow to a standstill. I do agree with those comments which said that this novel is not up to 'Clancy' standards. Of course, he is dead and a variety of writers are carrying on. I hope this co-author does not write any more Clancy books.

This is not a Clancy!! It was an interesting book but not up to the Clancy standard. The idea of the book was good since I worked in IT I understood where it was going. Will read more by Mike Madden and see if his other work is fits his writing style.

Readable. Maden keeps Clancy's stable of characters but........not a Clancy. IT techies will get off on this book.
