Number one bestselling author Tom Clancy's hero Jack Ryan returns in this latest thriller for 2015
International stalemate with North Korea continues into its seventh decade. A young, untested dictator is determined to prove himself by breaking the deadlock. His plans hang on the country's nuclear ambitions, a program previously impeded by lack of resources. However, there has been a dramatic change in the nation's economic fortune. A rich deposit of valuable minerals have been found and, coupled with their nuclear capabilities, the money from this will make North Korea a dangerous force on the world stage.
There's just one more stage to this perfect plan...the elimination of the president of the United States.
