Jack Ryan is dealing with an aggresive challenge from the Chinese government. Pawns are being moved around a global chessboard: an attack on an oil platform in Africa, a terrorist strike on an American destroyer and a storm tossed American spy ship that may fall into Chinese hands. It seems that President Zhao is determined to limit Ryan's choices in the upcoming G20 negotiations. But there are hints that there's even more going on behind the scene. A routine traffic stop in rural Texas leads to a shocking discovery--a link to a Chinese spy who may have intelligence that lays bare an unexpected revelation. John Clark and the members of the Campus are in close pursuit, but can they get the information in time?

I am generally not a fan of "books by committee" where a known author takes his idea and farms it out to another writer to do the leg work, or, in this case, books where an author's vision and characters are taken over posthumously by other authors. However er, in this, I am willing to make an exception. This book is not only well written, crisp, and tense, but it feels like something Clancy might have written himself. I truly enjoyed this book. I hope Cameron writes another one.

Marc Cameron takes the helm of a Jack Ryan novel, as has been the case for several books since the death of Tom Clancy (and realistically beforehand, as he'd been working with co-authors for some time). Weaving together narratives with President Ryan confronting enigmatic moves by a new Chinese government with the Campus operators hunting down a human trafficking ring, the book is helped along by putting a fair amount of emphasis on John Clark, with nods to his past providing motivations for his actions in this story.

Less action and more character development which was a nice change of pace. Faded into the end IMO though.
