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. ( )
