Product Description (Source: NBD):
A newly belligerent Chinese government leaves US President Jack Ryan with only a few desperate options in the latest in the #1 New York Times bestselling series. 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 Premier Zhao is determined to limit Ryan's choices in the upcoming G20 negotiations and there are hints that there's even more going on behind the scenes.
Product Review (NBD):
Praise for Tom Clancy Power and Empire "Marc Cameron has written a perfectly played 'chess match' that would certainly make Tom Clancy proud. Jack Ryan has remained, through more than a few authors who have taken on the job, a formidable hero that no one has been able to match. Having the new 'spice' that Cameron has added to the series offers a fresh voice to a world that will continue for some time."--Suspense Magazine"Superior...Cameron delivers plenty of action along with the spycraft and weapons details that Tom Clancy fans have always loved...Cameron successfully juggles the three separate plot lines, each engrossing on its own, and seamlessly stitches them together by novel's end...All the writers who have contributed to this series since Clancy's death have been good, but Cameron's formidable performance puts him at the head of the pack."--Publishers Weekly "[Cameron] enters Clancyworld with the chops to allow the formidable Clark and the president-we-wish-we-had Ryan to save the world again...Another turbocharged, take-no-prisoners Ryan yarn."--Kirkus Reviews "Picks up the mantle of Tom Clancy's epic Jack Ryan series, and delivers a solid initial entry...Cameron does a particularly good job of capturing the complexity of John Clark, one of the series most beloved and complex heroes."--New York Journal of Books "Cameron rises to the challenge of replacing Mark Greaney to continue Tom Clancy's franchise in high-powered fashion...A terrific, high-concept political thriller written with the same finesse and style that Clancy's fans have come to expect."--The Real Book Spy Praise for Tom Clancy "Heart-stopping action...entertaining and eminently topical."--The Washington Post "[Clancy] excites, illuminates."--Los Angeles Daily News "Highly entertaining."--The Wall Street Journal Praise for the books of Tom Clancy "Heart-stopping action...entertaining and eminently topical." --Washington Post "[Clancy] excites, illuminates." --Los Angeles Daily News "Highly entertaining." --The Wall Street Journal Praise for the books of Tom Clancy "Heart-stopping action...entertaining and eminently topical." --Washington Post "[Clancy] excites, illuminates." --Los Angeles Daily News "Highly entertaining." --The Wall Street Journal
About Author (NBD):
A little more than thirty years ago, Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore's Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt For Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it "the perfect yarn." From that day forward, Clancy established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. He passed away in October 2013. A native of Texas, Marc Cameron spent twenty-nine years in law enforcement. Early in his career, he served as a uniformed police officer, mounted (horse patrol) officer, SWAT officer, and detective. In early 1991 he accepted a position with the United States Marshals Service where he moved through the ranks to finally retire as Chief of the District of Alaska. Specializing in dignitary protection, his assignments took him from rural Alaska to Manhattan, from Canada to Mexico, and points in between. Cameron is conversant in Japanese, and travels extensively researching his New York Times bestselling Jericho Quinn novels. A second-degree black belt in jujitsu, he often teaches defensive tactics to law enforcement agencies and civilian groups.
