Summary
  • "In the latest electrifying adventure in Tom Clancy's #1New York Timesbestselling series, Jack Ryan, Jr., learns that sometimes the deadliest secret may be standing right next to you. Former U.S. Senator Weston Rhodes is a defense contractor with an urgent problem. His company needs someone to look over the books of Dalfan Technologies, a Singapore company--quickly. He turns to his old friend Gerry Hendley for help. Hendley Associates is one of the best financial analysis firms in the country and the cover for The Campus, a top-secret American intelligence agency. Rhodes asks for two specific analysts, Jack Ryan Jr., and Paul Brown, a mild-mannered forensic accountant. Both Ryan and Brown initially resist, for different reasons. On the long flight over, Ryan worries he's being sidelined from the next Campus operation in America's war on terror. Brown--who was never very good with people--only worries about the numbers, and finding a good cup of tea. Brown has no idea Jack works for The Campus but the awkward accountant is hiding secrets of his own. Rhodes has tasked him with uploading a cyberwarfare program into the highly secure Dalfan Technologies mainframe on behalf of the CIA. On the verge of mission success, Brown discovers a game within the game, and the people who now want to kill him are as deadly as the cyclone bearing down on the island nation. Together Ryan and Brown race to escape both the murderous storm and a team of trained assassins in order to prevent a global catastrophe, even at the cost of their own lives"--

Review
  • Maden (Drone Threat and three other Troy Pierce technothrillers) bases this taut, exciting thriller—an entry in the Jack Ryan Jr. division of the Tom Clancy universe—on the seemingly mundane premise of a corporate audit. Jack Ryan Jr., partnered with forensic accountant Paul Brown, is working for Hendley Associates, a top financial analysis firm, on a study of Dalfan Technologies, a Singaporean company that former U.S. senator Weston Rhodes intends to acquire. Rhodes has a clandestine secondary mission for Paul: installing a CIA diagnostic program to sniff Dalfan’s files for potential cyber-espionage. Tight security delays Paul’s infiltration, and as the deadline nears and Rhodes becomes more agitated, Paul suspects his mission is far more sinister. The not-merely-accountants must outrace international assassins and a massive typhoon to thwart a global financial disaster. Clancy fans can rest assured that the state of the franchise is strong. Agent: Jennifer Rudolph Walsh, WME. (June)

  • Checking out a German company for the investment firm that acts as cover for the Campus, Jack Ryan Jr. takes along back-office employee David Kraft to help run numbers and carry the bags. Unfortunately, David's secret past gets them both in trouble. --Barbara Hoffert (Reviewed 02/01/2017) (Library Journal, vol 142, issue 1, p50)
  • Scion of Clancy's family of all-American heroes, Jack Ryan Jr. usually goes armed as a special-ops warrior for The Campus, but this time he's equipped with a Zebra F-701 pen as Maden (Drone Threat, 2016, etc.) offers his first entry in the late master's oeuvre (Tom Clancy True Faith and Allegiance, 2016, etc.).The Campus is a supersecret unit of Hendley Associates, a private equity management company. Former U.S. Sen. Weston Rhodes has approached Hendley for help. The ex-public servant now fronts for defense contractor Marin Aerospace Systems, which wants to buy Singapore's Dalfan Technologies, making an audit necessary. Rhodes requests Hendley's ace fraud accountant, Paul Brown, and Jack Jr., trained as a financial analyst, to do the work. There's a hidden agenda, of course, linked to Rhodes' and Brown's long-ago CIA service. Behind that curtain lurks North Korea, a Bulgarian assassin, and a disloyal son. There's the lowdown on Singapore, good, bad, and monsoon season, plus a three-way fight among Dalfan's owners, the superwealthy and secretive Eurasian family Fairchild. As revealed in back-story anecdotes, Brown, who looks like a schlub, has more hidden assets than Dalfan, whose finances are suspiciously clean. In this turbocharged narrative, technology—supercomputers, smartphones, OnStar, and Google maps—gives the bad guys the plausible ability to wage economic warfare from Shanghai to the United States. On the Brave New World front, Dalfan's ready to launch Steady Stare, a solar-powered drone. Steady Stare would make the National Security Agency drool. It can see every movement of every person plus "time travel" into the past. But isn't that nothing more than the unlimited ability to rewind? With typhoons; deadly Chinese and North Korean operatives wielding bats, knives, and guns; and a weaponized thumb drive, the action reaches Clancy levels early and stays there.(Kirkus Reviews, June 1, 2017)
