Tom Clancy’s Duty And Honour, Grant Blackwood

Tom Clancy’s Duty And Honour opening line: Jack Ryan, Jr., would later wonder what exactly had saved his life that night.

My blurb:

Jack is on a forced leave of absence when an attempt is made on his life. Deciding to not let his friends at The Campus, or the Secret Service know about this, he decides to discover the reasons behind this alone. Along the way, Jack joins forces with a young man not skilled in the way Jack is. Together they uncover a plot which is certain to put them in harm’s way. Will this be the deciding factor for Jacks future?

Tom Clancy’s Duty And Honour: 
Covert operative Jack Ryan Jr is enjoying some well-earned R&R when an attempt is made on his life. He survives, only to learn that another attempt on his life is imminent. Jack sets out to find out who wants him dead, and why.
Using clues left by his would-be assassin, Jack follows a trail that leads through France and Switzerland to Rostock, a shadowy security firm based in Germany. Jack knows its head, Jurgen Rostock, from a previous operation – one that has apparently drawn the man’s fury.
Without the resources of The Campus – the elite agency from which he is on a leave-of-absence – but with the help of an investigative journalist, Jack embarks on his own secret campaign to uncover the truth about Rostock. And what he finds is that they are up to something both big and very, very bad.
But what can one man do against all Rostock’s might?
The world is about to find out.
My verdict:

It took me four days to read this brilliantly written book. Grant Blackwood has seamlessly taken over from where Tom Clancy left off and I for one am a very grateful reader. I cannot wait for the next episode.
