Line Of Sight, Mike Maden | Book Review

Line Of Sight opening line: Dr. Guzman rubbed her tired eyes.

My blurb:

Jack Ryan junior is jetting off to Europe to do work for Hendley Associates. While there, his mother has tasked him to look up an old patient of hers. Jack does not mind the detour to Sarajevo. Especially when the patient turns out to be a beautiful young lady. Enamoured by her, Jack takes more time off work than he planned to. He wants a future with someone and he is wondering if Aida can be that person. But his infatuation turns into something more dangerous than he had bargained for.

Line Of Sight
On a break between missions, Jack Ryan Jr is asked by his mother to visit Sarajevo and track down a girl whose life she saved during the war. Finally, he thinks, life might be quietening down.
That’s until he meets Aida – grown from a child into a beautiful and selfless woman. Jack finds himself drawn to her, not to mention impressed by her dangerous work helping Syrian refugees enter Europe.
But the region is increasingly unstable, and just as Jack lets his guard down, Aida is violently kidnapped by the Serbian mafia.
With no official status, Jack’s pleas for help fall on deaf ears, and he realises he must act alone to save the woman he loves. But as the simmering tensions threaten to bubble over, Jack will soon discover Bosnia is a dangerous place to fly solo…
My verdict:

This is the 25th installment in the Tom Clancy series of novels. Mike Maden is the latest author to pen these novels. It appears we are moving away from the life of Jack Ryan senior and into the life of his son. This is a good read which will leave you wanting to know what happens next in the life of Jack Ryan junior and his friends at The Campus.

  • Ooh, I haven't read this one yet. Will have to track it down. I like a good escapist read now and then. :-)
