"A newly belligerent Chinese government leaves US President Jack Ryan with only a few desperate options in this continuation of the #1 New York Times bestselling Tom Clancy series. 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?"--

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.

I think Marc Cameron has done justice to Tom Clancy's characters. It was nice to see both Ryans (Jr. and Sr.) in action in a single volume and John Clark demonstrates that his past attitudes have not mellowed with age.

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