In this Jack Ryan thriller, #1 New York Times bestselling author Tom Clancy delivers an electrifying story of intrigue, power, and a family with two generations of heroes....

Decades ago, as a young CIA analyst, President Jack Ryan Sr. was sent out to investigate the death of an operative--only to uncover the existence of a KGB assassin codenamed Zenith. He was never able to find the killer....

In the present, a new strongman has emerged in the ever-chaotic Russian republic--the enigmatic President Valeri Volodon. But the foundations of his personal empire are built on a bloody secret from his past. And none who know of it have lived to tell. For he has set a plot in motion--a plot to return Russia to its former glory.

And Jack Ryan Jr.--aided by his compatriots John Clark and the covert warriors of the secretive Campus--must delve into an international conflict thirty years in the making, and finish what his father started.

With President Ryan fighting the political battle of his life, and his son fighting a silent war against a ruthless foe, global conflict becomes imminent--and the possibility of survival may soon be lost for all....

Earning the prestigious job of collaborating with Tom Clancy on his iconic Jack Ryan series further solidified his position in the world of espionage literature. Together, they produced several international bestsellers, and after Clancy's death, Greaney continued the series solo in honor of his colleague. Despite spending a considerable amount of time researching, writing, and travelling for his book tours, Mark Greaney's dedication to authenticity never wavers. Famed for his commitment to realism, he has trained alongside military and law enforcement officers in order to deliver the most accurate narratives possible. His strongest attribute, however, is his ability to create tension-filled thrillers that keep readers on edge from start to finish - proof of an author truly at the height of his storytelling power.
Tom Clancy was one of America's most acclaimed authors, best known for his ingeniously crafted military science and espionage novels. Born on April 12, 1947 in Baltimore, Maryland, Clancy developed a fascination for naval history at an early age, a passion he carried into his adult life resulting in highly detailed novels featuring American military. Known for his precision and extensive research, his works hauntingly echoed the geopolitical events of the late 20th century. Clancy's first novel ‘The Hunt for Red October’ published in 1984 brought him to immediate recognition. Thanks to its publication by the Naval Institute Press, he tapped into the thirst for intricate technical details about military operations and hardware. His gripping storytelling resonated with audiences, propelling him to international fame. This success spawned a prolific writing career that involved a series of bestsellers such as ‘Red Storm Rising’, ‘Patriot Games’, and ‘Clear and Present Danger’. Besides his authorial career, Tom Clancy was a co-founder of the video game developer Red Storm Entertainment, where many titles, like the popular "Splinter Cell" series, were inspired by his thrillers. His influence extended beyond the literary world, leaving an indelible mark in popular culture. Despite his passing in 2013, Tom Clancy's legacy endures in his numerous novels and adaptations, reverberating his masterful narratives on global espionage and military strategy.
