Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Jack Ryan returns in a explosive new thriller.

When brilliant and eccentric scientist Liu Wangshu disappears from his apartment in China, the Ministry of State Security is furious and certain they know what's happened: a defection to the Americans.

President Jack Ryan knows how valuable an asset Liu would be - the inventor is responsible for much of China's recent technological progress, with his latest project rumoured to be the biggest yet. The problem is that none of Ryan's team have any idea where Liu is.

And what's worse, Ryan discovers that China is already watching them closely: a mole, code-named SURVEYOR, has managed to infiltrate US intelligence, with a terrifying level of access.

The new Cold War is about to get very hot indeed....

Always exciting and excellent listening.

Great story but confusing at times changing from 1 story line to another. However would recommend to al Clancy fans.

OK if you are bored

I love the Jack Ryan books but this was pretty dull. Imagine an AI had read all the other books and had to write its own version. That would be Shadow of the Dragon. Nothing made it stand out.

Good but could be better

Always a good writer, the build up and story spoilt by a very rushed ending

Excellent, well written and executed superbly

Really enjoyed it.

Narrator did a great job and the Tom Clancy story was really good, this one the first book I have read of Tom Clancy and I was worried that I might not be able to follow the story as this was like book 19 or something. However, it turns out you don't need to have read the entire stories of the prior books.

Great job, highly recommend
