Here at All about Vince Flynn, we’re not just fans of Vince Flynn but the whole Crime, Mystrey, Thriller Genre. Another of our Favourite Authors is Tom Clancy, who has also written a series of books around a characther in the CIA – Jack Ryan.
Dead or Alive is a welcome new book in this series as the last was published all the way back in 2003. Dead or Alive brings back a range of popular characthers from the Jack Ryan Series including – Jack Ryan, Ed and Mary Pat Foley, Clark and Chavaz and Rainbow Six and more.
The Lanch of Tom Clancy’s Dead or Alive in the UK was like no other. The UK Red Devils delivered six copies of Dead or Alive to the Tower of London to be guarded by the Queens Yeoman Warders. 500 copies are also being flown out to Troops in Afganistan.
It is called the Campus. It was secretly created under the administration of President Jack Ryan, its sole purpose to hunt down, locate and eliminate terrorists and those who protect them, at will, without sanction or oversight. A self-sufficient entity, it has no official connection to the American Government – a necessity in a time when those in power consider themselves above such arcane concepts as loyalty, justice, and right or wrong.
Covert intelligence expert Jack Ryan Jr. and his compatriots at the Campus have waged this silent war in every corner of the world. Now joined by two of his father’s closest allies, black ops warriors John Clark and ‘Ding’ Chavez, as well as Brain and Dominic Caruso and Mary Pat Foley, the Campus has come up against its greatest foe: a sadistic killer known as the Emir.
The mastermind of countless horrific attacks, the Emir has eluded capture by every law enforcement agency in the world- a fact that the Campus is determined to change. But his greatest devastation is yet to be unleashed, as he plans a monumental single strike that will destroy the heart of America, unless the Campus can take him, dead or alive.
On the trail of Emir, Jack Ryan Jr. will find himself following in his legendary father’s footsteps on a deadly manhunt that will take him and his allies around the globe, into the shadowy arenas of political gamesmanship, and back on to US Soil – in a battle to prevent the fall of the West . . .
Together for the first time, and all-star cast of Tom Clancy’s characters race to ensure the nation’s survival and to complete their mission: the desperate search for a madman who may be hiding in plain sight.
