Editorial Reviews

Review

"Each plotline comes to us mainly in a series of tightly written action scenes...as visual as anything on a movie screen, with the added enticement of crisp, accurate and hard driving prose." --Chicago Tribune

"Hard to put down." --Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

About the Author

Thirty years ago, Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore’s Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it “the perfect yarn.” Since then Clancy has established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense.

Mark Greaney has a degree in international relations and political science and is pursuing his master’s in intelligence studies with a concentration in criminal intelligence. In his research for the Gray Man novels, he traveled to seven countries and trained alongside military and law enforcement in the use of firearms, battlefield medicine, and close-range combat tactics.

In his latest novel, Tom Clancy pairs up with Mark Greany to produce Threat Vector, another great installment in his techno-thriller series. Late last year these two authors released Locked On, based upon the continuing adventures of Jack Ryan Senior and Junior. The Ryans are back again in a new, high stakes cyber war, with the fate of the world in the balance. After an action packed beginning, the younger Ryan and his secret agency go to war against Chinese hackers, who are bent on destruction. I read this book through in one day, interrupted only by my job. Although I had planned to save it for an upcoming plane trip, I couldn't stop reading. It is that good. I cooled on Clancy for years, but this one has brought me back to fan status again.

I fell in love with Tom Clancy's writing with The Hunt for Red October, a book that kept millions of us on the edge of our seats. In the 1980's his books were unique for their combination of fast paced action, solid characters, geopolitical intrigue and amazingly realistic details about tech and weapons, all brought together in exciting adventures. Unfortunately, his novels haven't always been excellent, especially when he began working with co-writers. I feel a little disappointed whenever I see his name sharing the front cover with someone else. None of his co-written books have been as good as the original Clancy works, with the exception of his second novel, Red Storm Rising (co-written with Larry Bond).

Clancy's writing has been criticized because his characters lack depth. They make clear cut decisions that are either good or bad, and the storylines portray an unapologetic American patriotism that has gone out of style in some quarters.

I grew up on the Tom Clancy Jack Ryan series. I've been a loyal reader ever since the first time I picked up a copy of Hunt for the Red October, buying and reading every subsequent Tom Clancy novel. Some were definitely better than others, some dragged on and took some time to read and get through. However, reading Threat Vector reminded me of the time I first read Hunt for the Red October. It kept me on the edge of my seat, not letting me put it down, even late into the night. The characters came alive on the page and you could feel yourself staring at the same computer screen that Jack Ryan, Jr., Ding, Dom, and others were looking at, just as you could feel yourself in the submarine with Jack Ryan Senior staring down at the cook who was trying to set off a missile. Threat Vector is now one of my favorite Tom Clancy novels.

If you decide to read it - allocate some time, because you'll find yourself at 4 a.m. still gripping the book, not able to put it down. Great read!

The last few Clancy novels haven't been quite the same as his early ones. With this one, it is very evident that the only thing that this shares with his early novels is the name. Mr. Greaney has done a decent job with the last one (Locked On) but this one has a couple of errors that are hard to ignore for die hard Clancy fans. First, it's mentioned that Jack Ryan Jr. is the eldest child of Jack Sr. If that's the case, what happened to Sally? Also, Ding's son, Clark's grandson, was given the name John Conor Chavez in the Rainbow Six novel. In Threat Vector he's referred to as John Patrick Chavez. We should all know that Seniors middle name is Patrick (Sir John Patrick Ryan). Those simple yet huge mistakes should never have made it into the novel. It's one thing if the inconsistencies were with non-regular characters but everyone knows that Ding and now Junior are major characters in the Ryanverse.

Many other reviewers have noted that this most recent work by Mr. Clancy doesn't live up to their expectations or keep them on the edge of their seat like "The Hunt for Red October" or "Clear and Present Danger". If however, one reviews this book without the nostalgia of one's youth, then I believe it stands on its own and is a very enjoyable thriller.

Realize we can't be nine years old again and watch "Star Wars" on a Sunday afternoon after church with our friends and compare every Sci-Fi movie to that experience any more than we can think back to how we felt when we first visited the Soviet submarine Red October 27 years ago and hold every Clancy novel up to that experience.

In my humble opinion, this is a good book and you will be glad you cozied up with it for a few hours.

I don't know why I keep buying Clancy's books. I guess I was spoiled by the first two which were absolutely awesome. Unfortunately it has been pretty much downhill from there. This one was no better or worse than the last half dozen. I consider these "money books" which an author pumps out to live off his great early books as long as he can. I suspect that Clancy lends his name and Greaney does most of the writing. This was a book to pass the time lying on the beach or on an airplane where you don't have to think to much. The plots are thin and often almost ridicilous and always end up the same way. Bad guys look invincible, goods guys are struggling, bad guys are blown to hell. I can see the plot for the next book already, John Clark takes over for the dead Sam Granger, Melanie comes back from making up with Dad and takes a job with "The Campus". Bad guys, maybe Iranians with nuclear bombs, threaten the world, Dom, Caruso, Jack Jr. and Melanie save the world. So I will probably buy it anyway. But if you want a really great spy/espionage series, forget Clancy, Vince Flynn and Brad Thor, read Alex Berenson or Daniel Silva or better yet Alan Furst who may be the best contemporary writer in this genre.

Why is this a Tom Clancy Book?
I haven't noticed the other author on the cover. I was just genuinely happy about a new episode of the Ryan saga. After reading few paragraph from the Prologue I knew there is something wrong going on. The style is just bad. And it makes me sad. Really.
I am now few pages into the first chapter... Read More

Price vs content
Yup...I didn't buy the latest Vince Flynn book until it hit $9.99 price point. And I left Clancy long time ago when he started prostituting himself by availing his name to any author that wanted to write a book (or it seemed to me). This one piqued my interest again, but it'll stay in my... Read More
