A North Korean ICBM crashes into the Sea of Japan. A veteran
CIA officer is murdered in Ho Chi Minh City, and a package
of forged documents goes missing. The pieces are there, but
assembling the puzzle will cost Jack Ryan, Jr. and his
fellow Campus agents precious time. Time they donâ€™t have.
The challenge facing President Jack Ryan is an old one with
a terrifying new twist. The international stalemate with
North Korea continues into its seventh decade. A young,
untested dictator is determined to prove his strength by
breaking the deadlock. Like his father before him, he hangs
his plans on the countryâ€™s nuclear ambitions. Until now,
that program was impeded by a lack of resources. However,
there has been a dramatic change in the nationâ€™s economic
fortune. A rich deposit of valuable minerals have been found
in the Hermit Kingdom. Coupled with their nuclear
capabilities, the money from this find will make North Korea
a dangerous force on the world stage.
Thereâ€™s just one more step needed to complete this perfect
plan - the elimination of the president of the United States.
