This book started off with potential with a pretty good fighting sequence, but soon descended into a confusing and totally uninteresting spy, action, plot, with ill-defined characters, such as the 'Devil'. I could hardly wait until I got to the last page.

Jack Ryan, Jr., son of the Jack Ryan, intelligence analyst extraordinaire and now President of the United States, is given his first command post and mission from The Campus, a shadowy clandestine government organisation that is a cross between the CIA and military black ops. Initially a low-grade, low-risk operation, events quickly escalate to the point that Jack, Jr. is fighting to stave off war between the USA and China and to rescue an old friend from certain death at the hands of an extremist organisation.

This book is essentially a set of combat set pieces in various exotic locations (a la James Bond) strung together by rather unconvincing and muddled plot expositions. Is this about the geopolitics of the South China Sea, a revenge novel or corporate greed? Clancy himself was just as good at the politics and geopolitics in his stories as he was at the combat and military hardware pieces.

For existing Clancy fans this is an OK but second division entry to the canon. Beginners might be better served by the early genuine Clancy books.

The book had a rough start. Jack Ryan Jr. was driving and he witnessed a two car accident. He gets out to help and ends up in a shoot out. When I was in my 20's maybe early 30's I would have gone with it. Now that I am in my late 50's I can't let it go. It just doesn't happen. Jack Jr sees it all the time. I loved The Incredible Hulk TV series that was on in the late 1970's. Today, I think I would have the same complaint about the situations Bill Bixby's character kept stumbling into.

Tom Clancy has been dead for a decade, but his tentpole Jack Ryan franchise goes on without him. I doubt whether the thirty-sixth novel in the series is where many readers will start with things Clancy. Weapons Grade has all the usual military-techy glitter, tense drama, bad baddies, women and children in distress, smart but likable villains, and in JR, jr., an action hero who takes more lumps than Fearless Fosdick (I know, kids. Look it up!). Here is a plot hint: it would be bad if someone hacked your self-driving Tesla; it is worse when someone does it to the AI in your hypersonic fighter plane.… (mais)
