Commander In Chief, Mark Greaney

Commander In Chief opening line: The Norwegians sold their secret submarine base to the Russians, and they did it on eBay.

I first ‘met’ Jack Ryan when I read Tom Clancy’s book, The Hunt For Red October. I have followed his life with eager anticipation of each new novel since 1984 and was amazed at how well Tom Clancy predicted the situation in the Ukraine in his novel Command Authority. This novel was published posthumously and at the time I reviewed the novel I was unaware that Mark Greaney had co-authored the novel. I thought that the fate of the Ryan family would forever be left to my imagination with the passing of Tom Clancy, so I was really excited to read Commander In Chief. In doing some research for this review I see I have missed quite a few of the in-between novels so I shall be doing some book shopping shortly so that Dave and I can catch up on the missing bits of the family story.

Valeri Volodin is once again threatening world peace. At the same time he is working on his exit plan from Russia and here Jack Ryan Junior becomes entangled with the same man his father is fighting in Europe. Lithuania is now under attack and the NATO forces are not at all ready for the Russian troops. Can the plans the Americans have put into place save the city of Vilnius?

The whole way through reading this book I thought of Nida and whether this could ever be a real life situation that she would have to live through. That is how real the book is and if you are a Jack Ryan fan then you really have no choice but to buy this book.

First published in the United States of America by G P Putnum’s Sons in 2015

ISBN 978-0-718-18189-5

Paperback – 718 pages

Disclosure: I was sent the book to review by Penguin Books South Africa. I was not required to write a positive review. This post is in line with my blogging policy.
