    It is really important to put this book into perspective along with the recent Clancy works and understand it is a book written in the style of Tom Clancy and the direction of the publishers.Clancy s last good book was Executive Orders average USscore of 4 stars , he dipped slightly with Rainbow Six Average of 3.5 before turning out the turgid Bear And The Dragon average of 2.5 stars and then the final book written by him, the very weak Red Rabbit average of 2 stars Then the ou It is really important to put this book into perspective along with the recent Clancy works and understand it is a book written in the style of Tom Clancy and the direction of the publishers.Clancy s last good book was Executive Orders average USscore of 4 stars , he dipped slightly with Rainbow Six Average of 3.5 before turning out the turgid Bear And The Dragon average of 2.5 stars and then the final book written by him, the very weak Red Rabbit average of 2 stars Then the outsourcing began with Teeth Of The Tiger 2 stars and Dead or Alive 2.5 star average.It is really important to understand that Tom Clancy lost it some time ago and those that claim this new book is a poor shadow of Clancy actually are referring to the golden days of Clancy because this is a lot better than the last three books Clancy actually wrote and certainly a vast improvement on the previous outsourcing.Mark Greaney makes a good job of this, slightly ham strung by the Clancy suits insisting we presume on the use of The Campus and young Jack Ryan as an all action hero Mr Greaney presents a story where Ryan senior is trying to get back into the White House and the incumbent President is willing to resort to dirty tricks to smear him, including using ex Rainbow Six leader John Clark as a sacrifice While Clark goes on the run, The Campus and Ryan Junior are on the trail of a rogue Pakistani intelligence chief who is orchestrating a deadly plan.In the true style of Clancy, this is a blend of politics and action with a few familiar faces amongst the newer characters The pace really picks up at the point Clark goes on the run and the book became increasingly hard to put down I think Greaney has sort of rescued the franchise and you feel the influence of Clancy s publishers has held it back rather than pushed it forward The portrayal of Ryan junior as an action hero, and a swing to the right wing just don t feel right There is also a scene where Ryan junior speaks to his Dad before going off on a dangerous mission his message Dad, when you get in the White House, please get the CIA back to where it belongs It made me shudder,But for the minor faults that I suspect were imposed on the author Locked On is a page turning thriller, I enjoyed it and would be delighted to see Mark Greaney have another go at being Tom Clancy

    I went through a phase years ago when I read nearly every Tom Clancy book in quick succession I found them fascinating and of course exciting If you haven t read his books, you may have seen films based on them The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, The Sum of All Fears, etc So, having read some of his best work, this book completely fell flat for me It hurts my soul to say this, but this book is so below average that I finished it and actually said, Terribl I went through a phase years ago when I read nearly every Tom Clancy book in quick succession I found them fascinating and of course exciting If you haven t read his books, you may have seen films based on them The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, The Sum of All Fears, etc So, having read some of his best work, this book completely fell flat for me It hurts my soul to say this, but this book is so below average that I finished it and actually said, Terrible, and threw it on the bed beside me If you ve read classic Tom Clancy, you ll recognize immediately when the fine print co author Mark Greaney has penned sections It s painfully apparent when Clancy looked at a page, inserted a few lines and let Greaney fill in the blanks Ugh Awful Besides all this, the plot is a little convoluted which, being Clancy, is not that unusual since he s known for using intricate plotlines and lots of government military details But, if you haven t read any of his books before, I can imagine you d be entirely confused by the characters since there is absolutely no character development whatsoever None Although I get frustrated with authors that see the need to recap who characters are with every subsequent book in a series Charlaine Harris, for one , there has to be some catch up in order to appeal to someone who maybe doesn t want to read 15 500 page novels in order to figure out who Jack Ryan is or what Rainbow Six members do The last quarter of the book was exciting and fast paced, but it felt increasingly forced as it sped toward the finish and I was almost insulted by Clancy including Jack Ryan in the book, only to mention him enough to call this a Jack Ryan Tom Clancy book UGH Oh, one last thing It s also terribly political and right leaning and takes place in the middle of an election year and, umm, I see what you tried to do there Clancy, but stick to submarines and Jack Ryan and stop this conservative agenda nonsense It added nothing to the story and made an amateur book look evenso.In short, don t bother

    I liked a lot of what Clancy has written over time.I read and reread everything that he wrote up to Rainbow Six.There are several reasons that I think this book is far inferior to his old work other than being probably ghost written.Clancy has always written with a politically conservative slant That isn t a problem to me What is a problem to me is that I think that in this book, the political tangents take me out of the story It s not the political aspect that bothers me, but it is sloppily I liked a lot of what Clancy has written over time.I read and reread everything that he wrote up to Rainbow Six.There are several reasons that I think this book is far inferior to his old work other than being probably ghost written.Clancy has always written with a politically conservative slant That isn t a problem to me What is a problem to me is that I think that in this book, the political tangents take me out of the story It s not the political aspect that bothers me, but it is sloppily incorporated and adds nothing to the story.The biggest problem with this book is that nearly every character in this book acts exactly the same The biggest appeal to the Ryan books was that we actually got to know the characters This book made everyone 1 dimensional.The last problem that I will talk about is that Clancy is stretching the bounds of plausibility to find a villain He started this trend in Rainbow Six, and while it got slightly better with Teeth of the Tiger as the threat wasn t a global threat, he s back at trying to find a new Soviet Union to cause a threat of global catastrophe This book is a poor echo of the original Ryan books It has the same characters, but most of the life has been sucked out of them

    Another great addition to the Jack Ryan Saga, by the master of espionage, and one of my all time favorite writers And I also enjoyed the writing style of Clancy s co author Mark Greaney.Locked On picks up not long after the events in Dead Or Alive Jack Ryan Sr is once again running for President of the United States, being fed up with the bull from his successor Ed Kealty, and his running the Country into the ground, with Jack Jr still honing his combat skills and being a field man for t Another great addition to the Jack Ryan Saga, by the master of espionage, and one of my all time favorite writers And I also enjoyed the writing style of Clancy s co author Mark Greaney.Locked On picks up not long after the events in Dead Or Alive Jack Ryan Sr is once again running for President of the United States, being fed up with the bull from his successor Ed Kealty, and his running the Country into the ground, with Jack Jr still honing his combat skills and being a field man for the top secret Campus But in the midst of events, Kealty will do whatever it takes to remain in office, and launches a private vendetta to disqualify Ryan as a Presidential Candidate, and connecting him with a killing that took place years ago by John Clark, dating back to Ryan s days in the CIA Now Clark is on the run from a shadowy mercenary team that has been assigned to capture him.And to make matters worse, with Clark s absence, there is a new threat emerging in the Middle East, a ruthless Pakistani General has made a pact with Terrorists to accessing nuclear warheads, which he tends to use to blackmail any world power into submission, even if it means nuclear war Now it s up to Jack Ryan Jr Dominic Caruso, Ding Chavez, and the rest of the Campus, to stop this Madman, where it s up to John Clark to battle the ghosts of his past and to clear Ryan s name.Non stop thrills and action throughout, many twists and turns, never a dull moment Another winner by Mr Clancy

    Despite my steadfast loyalty to Mr Clancy, I will always buy his books I must admit this book disappointed me I recognize the best days of the Ryan Franchise are probably past, but I was hopeful forI agree the political diatribes were too much sometimes felt as if I had turned on Fox News halfway through one chapter , and could have been utilized in asuccinct manner I agree with his position, but to beat down the opposition accomplished little in the book, except to bore me fo Despite my steadfast loyalty to Mr Clancy, I will always buy his books I must admit this book disappointed me I recognize the best days of the Ryan Franchise are probably past, but I was hopeful forI agree the political diatribes were too much sometimes felt as if I had turned on Fox News halfway through one chapter , and could have been utilized in asuccinct manner I agree with his position, but to beat down the opposition accomplished little in the book, except to bore me for 20 minutes or so The chasing of John Clark could have been its own book perhaps it should have been It was energetic, required constant attention and provided such sharp detail Yet, it s end was far too quick and a bit unrealistic And the endingfor Tom Clancy it was so pedestrian One of his best attributes is leaving you to believe the bad guys will succeed, even if only to be punished severely ala Executive Orders But this ending it could have been so muchAnd this new trend of using the last few pages to set up the next book What has Mr Clancy become A hollywood screenwriter who has run out of ideas That being said, its Tom Clancy Its Jack Ryan Its John Clark You have to buy it and read it Its better than most of the material out there today Mr Clancy at 25% is still better than most writers at 100%

    By far the best Clancy novel since Rainbow Six Against All Enemies was difficult to muddle through in parts, but this was a gripping, can t put it down Clancy original I am really enjoying seeing Jack Ryan, Jr develop as a character For long time readers of Clancy like myself, it s hard to imagine Jack Jr all grown up He s becoming quite the bad ass in his own right The twisting plot leaves you in many different places at once, but it all ties together nicely in the end If you are a liber By far the best Clancy novel since Rainbow Six Against All Enemies was difficult to muddle through in parts, but this was a gripping, can t put it down Clancy original I am really enjoying seeing Jack Ryan, Jr develop as a character For long time readers of Clancy like myself, it s hard to imagine Jack Jr all grown up He s becoming quite the bad ass in his own right The twisting plot leaves you in many different places at once, but it all ties together nicely in the end If you are a liberal, beware Clancy and Ryan are clearly no longer fans of the Obama er Kealty administration There were certainly a few plot issues with the story John Clark operating in Russia with no one to call This is John Clark that we are talking about Also, only one year out of heading up Rainbow and he acts like Clark no longer has any contacts He was head of Rainbow just a year ago Regardless, the few minor issues that I have with the plot don t distract away from this great read As always, I love Ding Him and Clark make such a great team Oh, and the last couple of pages will put you on the edge of your seat waiting on the next one And make you want to slap someone

    I ve read a great many of Tom Clancy s books and liked most of them I do have to say that the last few weren t quite as good in my opinion of course as his earlier books When I read The Bear and the Dragon it occurred to me that possibly Mr Clancy s sales were so good that editors were doing less and less with the manuscript I don t know But it seemed to me that the book was just wordythan they had been before I think the theme continued through what I read after that one.There I ve read a great many of Tom Clancy s books and liked most of them I do have to say that the last few weren t quite as good in my opinion of course as his earlier books When I read The Bear and the Dragon it occurred to me that possibly Mr Clancy s sales were so good that editors were doing less and less with the manuscript I don t know But it seemed to me that the book was just wordythan they had been before I think the theme continued through what I read after that one.There s a little of that here, but not so much If this book has a flaw it s that the plot plots are a bit convoluted As the terrorist plots spin there are also a couple of other underhanded situations growing and of course we re still keeping up with Jack Ryan Sr s bid for the presidency.Still it s all handled well and comes together This is also the first Clancy Jack Ryan book that ends in aor less blatant cliff hanger.Now all that said, I like this book I ve moved the rating up the 5 star column I don t give many 5s and I was thinking of calling this one a high 4 but on reflection I think it crosses the line to the highest rating I can give maybe just by a bit, but then a wins a win There is a lot that s satisfying about this one and a lot that rings true It has a good deal of action that s handled well and folded well into the overall story While the plot threads spread out a bit and had to be pulled back in it felt choppy or forced I like it.How much of this is due to the co authorship of Mark Greaney I have no way of knowing I ve read his first two Gray Man books, The Gray Man and On Target by him I liked them greatly and have the next one already I m just waiting till I can make room on my currently reading list to fit it in I keep getting library books that have to read so I can turn them back in So a good action thriller with the coherent feel of a well crafted political thriller, maybe a littleof the old Clancy feel than we ve had in a wile with the addition of a great new writer that I ve already recommended for his own work Sounds pretty good huh Recommended

    Locked On I personally did not like the book Locked On by Tom Clancy I did not like it for a few reasons One reason is that the book was a bit slow paced at times I am a kind a of reader that likes books to be fast paced and on going For example at the beginning of the book it was all about chasing terrorists, so I thought I was going to like it Then as I got into the book a littleit started talking about the presidents kids I thought that that this would tie into the terrorist situa Locked On I personally did not like the book Locked On by Tom Clancy I did not like it for a few reasons One reason is that the book was a bit slow paced at times I am a kind a of reader that likes books to be fast paced and on going For example at the beginning of the book it was all about chasing terrorists, so I thought I was going to like it Then as I got into the book a littleit started talking about the presidents kids I thought that that this would tie into the terrorist situation seeing that it was talking about the president and his family, but as I kept reading the book just got into how the president and his wife did not like their sons job The rest of the book was basically about the same thing Who makes the conflict in the book parents not liking their kids job Even though the son was a secret agent the author did not go into details about nerve racking missions Another reason I did not like the book was because some events that happened did not relate to the problem or conflict at all Like I said at the beginning of the book the author talked about terrorists missions, but after that first paragraph the word terrorist was probably only mentioned about threetimes Throughout the whole book all I heard was your mother and I are scared about your safety, even though it was the president I did not really care about what the parents thought of their kids job I wanted to hearabout how terrorist were captured This book was very boring Another thing I do not like about this book is that the problem was resolved by just talking problems out By the middle of the book I was bored with all the talking and all of the dullness I mean the guy that wrote the book was a naval captain himself how can a guy with that type of experience not be able to write an action packed book I do not think I would really recommend this book to anyone unless you like boring books, but come on now who really likes to read a boring book Do not be deceived by this books cover I give credit to who ever drew it The cover is nice to look at The book though is bad therefore I would rate it a two out of ten

    This is a superb Clancy novel, and one of my all time favorite thrillers overall Re reading it for the third time, I was just as enthralled as the first time Mark Greaney is always an excellent writer, and here he is collaborating with Clancy himself, producing a novel of the size and scope of Executive Orders or The Sum of All Fears with the action and writing style of a modern thriller This book is massive The story is wonderfully intricate and tightly plotted, featuring a huge cast of This is a superb Clancy novel, and one of my all time favorite thrillers overall Re reading it for the third time, I was just as enthralled as the first time Mark Greaney is always an excellent writer, and here he is collaborating with Clancy himself, producing a novel of the size and scope of Executive Orders or The Sum of All Fears with the action and writing style of a modern thriller This book is massive The story is wonderfully intricate and tightly plotted, featuring a huge cast of characters, with jack Ryan running for president oncewhile his son and The Campus unravel a global conspiracy that involves an assortment of spies, terrorists, politicians, and a rogue general It is truly a global thriller, with threads stretching from the Cold War to the Global War on Terror, and a plot that moves from France, Germany, and Russia, to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, India, and the UAE This book also features Clark in a subplot that goes back to one of his first missions for the CIA behind the Iron Curtain, and the most intense Rainbow Six mission in the series so far The Campus is also at its most interesting here, when it has to truly operate outside the normal Intelligence Community and stay below the radar of a hostile administration in the White House As expected with a Clancy book, this book is packed with an almost exhaustive amount of detail and information on just about everything, adding an air of real world authenticity to the story, even the parts that otherwise might seem highly improbable This book, and it s follow up, Threat Vector, definitely stand out as two of the high points of the entire Ryanverse
