The plot is capturing, the political attitudes to say the least extremely one sided. ( )

If you are a fan of the Jack Ryan and the campus universe at all, this one takes a slightly different approach in that this book completely focuses on Dominic Caruso. Mark Greaney co-wrote (basically finished the last 3 or four books before Tom Clancy died) so the transition is very smooth.


This is basically Edward Snowden in the Jack Ryan Universe, with some twists. ( )

This book had Cliché moments. The bad guy thought he was something else. The stand-off-ish hot lady who in the end warmed up. The hero saving the girl in the bar. Just about the whole thing - nothing original and very predictable. Oh well, I loved every moment. Like those well written action books with feel good endings. Going to pick up the next one soon. ( )

This was one of those books that started out with a bang, in the tradition of Tom Clancy, but ended up with a whimper. I have no idea how much input Tom Clancy had on this book before his death, but there was a place three quarters of the way through the book where I swear the writing style changed and the story lost me, forever. This place in the book was where any reality left the book, like a vanishing wind in sails. I struggled to finish the novel and the further I went, the more difficult it was. The best word I can describe the last quarter of the book is cheesy and unrealistic, i.e. the hero racing on a high speed chase through a blizzard on a motorcycle, please, please, please. One of the talents Tom Clancy had with such books as Patriot Games, Red October, and Clear and Present Danger was convincing readers the story could actually happen. Support and Defend was unconvincing. One thumb up. Mildly entertaining. ( )
