Don't Miss the Original Series Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan Starring John Krasinski!
Tom Clancy delivers a #1 New York Times bestselling Jack Ryan novel that will remind readers why he is the acknowledged master of international intrigue and nonstop military action.
It is The Campus. Secretly created under the administration of President Jack Ryan, its sole purpose is to eliminate terrorists and those who protect them. Officially, it has no connection to the American government - a necessity in a time when those in power consider themselves above such arcane ideals as loyalty, justice, and right or wrong.
Now covert intelligence expert Jack Ryan Jr. and his compatriots at The Campus - joined by black ops warriors John Clark and “Ding” Chavez - have come up against their greatest foe: a sadistic killer known as the Emir. Mastermind of countless horrific attacks, the Emir has eluded capture by every law enforcement agency in the world. But his greatest devastation is yet to be unleashed as he plans a monumental strike at the heart of America.
On the trail of the Emir, Jack Ryan Jr. will find himself following in his legendary father’s footsteps on a manhunt that will take him and his allies across the globe, into the shadowy arenas of political gamesmanship, and back onto U.S. soil in a race to prevent the possible fall of the West....
“Heart-stopping action...entertaining and eminently topical.” (The Washington Post)
“The best characters from all of Clancy’s previous novels are on the case.... For fans of the genre, Dead or Alive is likely to provide a long weekend’s pleasure.” (Los Angeles Times)
“Clancy is back at the top of his game.... In-depth research, continuous suspense, and scores of fascinating characters.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))
Ce que les auditeurs disent de Dead or Alive
- Robert B. Wales
Same great Clancey - Great narration
I've got every Tom Clancy book Audible has done, but they all suffer - BADLY - from Michael Pritchard's narration.
Lou Diamond Phillips does a superb job of performing this latest Clancy thriller.
Don't be deceived by thinking the Lou Diamond Phillips, the actor you see in movies and on TV is the extent of his dramatic range. He is absolutely wonderful at capturing the characters, accents, genders, etc in this Audiobook

Superb! More Clancy/LDP!
Lou Diamond Philips?! MORE! I've been a member of Audible since it started, and I can say this for the first time- "LDP reads this book to me better than I could read it to myself". LDP has played enough military and police roles in movies that he understands where TC is coming from (I'd love to see him in a movie as Ding Chavez!) I usually read the ebook first, and if it's good, listen to it on audible later while I'm driving or doing work around the house. I deleted the ebook this time!
I've read every Clancy book and have liked most of them. He has an undeniable style and finesse. I must caution you; if you're squeamish to the military or have a liberal bone in your body you should probably click away from this page with haste. As a veteran I can tell you that Clancy's books are realistic, right down to the thoughts and attitudes of the troops and analysts. This book was no exception. Welcome back Clancy, John, Chavez, and the Ryans, and 'well met' to the new players.
THIS IS A MUST LISTEN... MULTIPLE TIMES!

Dead or nearly dead
Good golly, this book is boring. Clancy and Blackwood churn up adventure and take f o r e v e r to tell it. Every t is crossed, every i is double-dotted, events telegraphed and texted and carbon copy sent by carrier pigeon to make sure you get it. Lou Diamond Phillips is a fine narrator, but even he can't do anything with this sloggy mush.

Great read. Lou Diamond Phillips does an excellent job narrating. He has a masterful command of pronunciation of names in many languages. Fully enjoyed the insight into the workings of the "spy" world. Makes me believe there's a place and time for "torture".

I found myself leaving the house early for class just so I could listen to this audiobook in the car. Really great narration by Lou Diamond Phillips. Wonderfully taut and gripping action throughout. Couldn't "put it down!" Highly recommended!

Book 5: Narrator 2
I am a long time Tom Clancy fan and waited expectantly for this book. The plot line is complicated due to the many different story lines that run concurrently...there is also some confusion at times, if you are not paying close attention, when 'Jack' is sometimes Jack Sr and sometimes Jack Jr.
The over all story line is not particularly inspired as it revolves around international and domestic terrorism and the continued action of the Rainbow special forces group. However, if you like this genre, you will be entertained.
I see others enjoyed Lou Diamond Phillips as the narrator and he does a very good job with accents> However, he uses a reading style like he is a TV golf announcer on the 18th green - kind of a whisper/talk voice...he seems to use whispers as a point of emphasis...whatever it was, I often found that many minutes had passed before I realized that I had not been listening...I ended up buying the hardcopy book.

Tom Clancy is at his most excellent - true to form on this book. Same old players chasing new, sneaky bad guys. You get detail without getting gore. The current headlines weave into the story with just enough scare to keep you reading. Ties all the ends together. Just a great book.

Lou Diamon Phillips Rocks
Seriously LDP is crazy good. The book is great too, but Lou is a surprising star as the Narrator.

Dead Or Alive
Lou Diamond Phillips did a super job narrating this story. I had read or listen to all of Tom Clancy's books. Glad to see him writing again I had almost given up hope for any new books from him. The only negative part of the book was the pushing of right wing politics. I would prefer sticking to the story and leave out the politics. I do like the pro military story he tell and all the military detail is great as well as his in-depth story of analysis techniques of the CIA and related agencies. Hope the next book comes along soon.

Too good to pass up!
An enjoyable and timely read. I particularly appreciate the high level of research that is obvious in the story. The pacing is great with interesting side notes as to the how of things happening in the story. Also an insiders view of the workings of government that are not apparent to the typical viewer of the 6 o'clock news. The reader of course nails the characters with animation and accent renditions that would have you believe there is an entire cast. I will be looking forward to more titles narrated by Lou Diamond Phillips.
GET the book, you will love it!

fast im alten Stil
Diese Roman ist fast wieder so wie die früheren Romane von Tom Clancy, nicht ganz die Klasse wie Roter Oktober oder Executiv Order, aber wirklich hörenswert.
