This is one of the best Jack Ryan novels, it starts out what I feel is the heart of the Jack Ryan saga. With the sad passing of Tom Clancy, this body of work may be now complete. If you want to experience a master at work - start with Debt of Honor and be ready to read at least Executive Orders - which picks up immediately where Debt of Honor leaves off.
If you go through the whole progression of these 9 novels you will not be disappointed. The realism of Clancy's work, always rooted in real technologies, agencies and geopolitical dynamics - and his ability to weave together dozens of fully defined characters and sub-plots is a thing of beauty. And if you look for some action in your reads - go no further. Tom Clancy will forever be a giant due to this body of work alone.
Read Debt of Honor, you will not be disappointed and you will probably jump right into Executive Orders. Older novel, but a great one, by the real Tom Clancy , it has an eerie relevance to current history. Military misadventures follow economic disasters.
An intellectual elite resorts to treason. The story could take place today with a slight rearrangement of not so superpowers, China, Russia, Japan and India. I keep reading because I've never left a book unfinished but I almost broke my record with this one and the next. It is lenghty and too much details that reading it some years later are absolutelly irrelevant and unnecessary.
I don't have any interest on how the submachine guns work or how the transmission of internet happens before. Or the motivations of every character in the book.
Also the action line is jumpy, going from a continent to another with just a couple of parragraph to let one find out who is this sections refer to. I barely finished it and plunged into the Executive order because I had already bought it. It is no better. You can add implausibility to the plot and subplots.
This may very well be Tom Clancy's most complex and satisfying novel. It links the bought-and-sold world of politics, the house-of-cards nature of industrial outsourcing and the pervasive though subtle nature of national history and pride. At the intersection of those 3 elements is the dark and ominous spectre of geopolitical ambition realized by the projection of military force.
An entirely believable cast of characters including some old friends from previous Clancy adventures breathes life into the complex plot that draws tighter, like a purse-string suture, until all the elements are within view In a final twist no spoiler here Get it! In all honesty its totally downhill from In all honesty its totally downhill from here. Some things that I like and don't yes this is spoilers if you never read.
Jack leaves government service back to the business sector. As much as he talks about leaving it and being done I made my money and I am out , you get no details on why he is back and did not go into academia. I consider this a flaw, while minor, but one that says things are going down hill. I like Clark and Chavez in the field. This is Mr. Clark at his best. I also like Chaves using his military benefits and getting a Master's degree in International Relations.
It saddens me quite a bit for them to leave field ops and become part of Rainbow Six another anti-terrorism special forces unit that like we already have Delta Force and the SEALS, sooo?? Oh wait its international? I really like Ryan as the National Security Advisor. Based on his relations with the Intelligence Committee, great fit. Vice-President and then President, pass the crack pipe. I am not so thrilled with all the cross characters always appearing.
Portegee happening to be on the island. Umm OK sure. Nice to resolve Kelly and Portegee but unnecessary. The story? Well its amazing how things change from what might have been.
I thought it was good. And heck, this whole thing it what I thought. This is another fantastic read in the Jack Ryan series. See all reviews.

Japanese industrialist Raizo Yamata has been plotting to bring back his country to a position of greatness for years, partly as revenge for the death of his family at the hands of American forces invading the island of Saipan during World War II. His opportunity comes when a car accident in eastern Tennessee , caused by faulty gas tanks made in Japan, results in the deaths of six American people.
The incident leads to the swift passage of a law allowing the U. Along with covert support from China and India , they plot to curtail the U. After the Japanese Prime Minister Mogataru Koga resigns in disgrace due to the economic situation, the zaibatsu installs Hiroshi Goto, an aggressive nationalist and critic of the U.
Japan launches the first phase of its assault, sending Self-Defense Force units to occupy the Mariana Islands , specifically Saipan and Guam , without casualties. However, during a joint military exercise, Japanese ships "accidentally" launch torpedoes at the U. Pacific Fleet , destroying two submarines and crippling two aircraft carriers. An immediate retaliation is forestalled by the second phase of the Japanese offensive: They also assassinate the chairman of the Federal Reserve.
The Japanese government then immediately sue for peace , offering international talks and seemingly free elections in the Marianas to delay a U. Meanwhile, Jack Ryan is pulled out of retirement from government service by U. Despite his typical focus on military issues, he advises the president to deal with the economic crisis first, realizing that Japan's deletion of trade records could be an advantage in responding to the economic threat.
He engineers a "do-over", where all of the transactions that were deleted on the day of the mass deletion are ignored and all trade information is restored to its condition at noon of that day.
The U. The United States military then proceeds to launch a counterattack on their Japanese counterparts using whatever resources they have. They later use an attack by stealthy F fighters to further damage Japan's air defenses. An Army special operations team is airdropped into Japan to support covertly inserted Comanche helicopters. One helicopter is used to attack another AWACS plane with air-to-air missiles while several others use Hellfire missiles to kill members of Yamata's cabal.
Meanwhile, Admiral Robby Jackson liberates the Marianas with few casualties by using a combination of cruise missiles and carrier air attacks to severely damage the Japanese aircraft stationed on the islands, which forces the Japanese commander to surrender his troops.
Outmaneuvered and cornered by the United States's military and economic response, Goto resigns, ceding power to his predecessor Koga, who was rescued earlier by Clark and Chavez from Yamata. Yamata and his surviving conspirators are arrested for treason, and the new Japanese government accepts the generous U. Throughout the book, President Durling faces another, less important political crisis: Vice President Ed Kealty is forced to resign after being accused of sexual misconduct.
With the crisis over, President Durling nominates Ryan as vice president for successfully handling the crisis. However, an embittered Japan Air Lines pilot, driven mad by the deaths of his son and brother during the conflict, flies his Boeing directly into the U. Capitol during a special joint session of Congress. The president, as well as nearly the entire Congress, the Supreme Court , and many other members of the federal government are killed in the attack.
Ryan, who is on his way to be confirmed as vice president, narrowly escapes the explosion. Debt of Honor was released during a time of American resentment towards the Japanese, which was further popularized by the publication of Michael Crichton 's crime thriller novel Rising Sun in In this case, Clancy avoided " Japan bashing " that is evident in Crichton's work, and instead presented a balanced picture of Japanese society, its government, business practices, and values.
In the novel, he also discussed currency trading , governmental corruption, car manufacturing and distribution, and power politics in the country. The novel also reinforces Clancy's belief that the recent downsizing of the military establishment after the Cold War "has so depleted our military resources that the country is vulnerable to aggression that can arise anywhere, anytime", according to Publishers Weekly ' s review of the book.
The novel received positive reviews. Publishers Weekly praised Clancy, who "spins out story threads in a rich but bewildering tangle of plot and setting, then vigorously weaves them together. Here, the heart-stopping climax is unexpected, but oddly appropriate. In later years, the novel became widely-known for predicting the September 11 attacks , especially regarding its climax, where an embittered Japanese pilot crashes his on a joint session of Congress in the Capitol.
While researching for the novel's ending, Clancy consulted an Air Force officer and described his reaction: Clancy, to the best of my knowledge, if we had a plan to deal with this, it would be secret, I wouldn't be able to talk to you about it, but to the best of my knowledge we've never looked at this possibility before. On April , United States senator Sam Nunn outlined a scenario similar to the novel's ending, in which terrorists attack the Capitol on the night of a State of the Union address by crashing a radio-controlled airplane filled with chemical weapons into it.
