Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Tom Clancy's Line of Sight by Mike Maden, read by Scott Brick. 

On a break between missions, Jack Ryan Jr is asked by his mother to visit Sarajevo and track down a girl whose life she saved during the Bosnian War. Finally, he thinks, life might be quietening down. 

That's until he meets Aida - grown from a child into a beautiful and selfless woman. Jack finds himself drawn to her, not to mention impressed by her dangerous work helping Syrian refugees enter Europe. 

But the region is increasingly unstable, and just as Jack lets his guard down, Aida is violently kidnapped by the Serbian mafia. 

With no official status, Jack's pleas for help fall on deaf ears, and he realises he must act alone to save the woman he loves. But as the simmering tensions threaten to bubble over, Jack will soon discover Bosnia is a dangerous place to fly solo....

Slow - boring story

Wasn't a very good story. Very slow. Not a lot happening. You're not going to be at the edge of your seat, that's for sure.

Bit slow

Not as good as the previous one by Mike Maden. Story was slow, no real action until the end of the book.

Lacking Ingredients of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan books

The story is almost lost amongst the overwhelming detail.

In this Tom Clancy Jack Ryan book, Jack Ryan’s role is only a cameo in the first half of the book.

The author Mike Maden, seems to have moved away from Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan & begun to transpose his own voice onto Jack Ryan.

When Mike Maden joined the Tom Clancy franchise, he was told, 'Feel free to add to the canon — just don't mess it up.'

Well, in ‘Line of Sight’, he has strayed too far. Jack Ryan Jr seems to have become less trained then he has previously been portrayed. He has also basically dropped ‘The Campass’ involvement in his Jack Ryan books.

Good apart from politics messaging

The overall book is worth reading but Mike’s clumsy attempts to add in current politics to polarize whoever he doesn’t like goes against the rest of the theme in the book.

Romantic novel meets TV script

No relation to a Clancy book. Lots of he-said-she-said dialogue, silly romantic storyline and an out of character performance by ‘Jack’. Might be my last purchase in the series. I thought the previous one was bad, but this takes the biscuit.

Thrilling listen

So Scott Brick always delivers and this is no exception. As with the great Tom Clancy he manages to run with several story lines and bring them together to one exciting ending.

Cannot wait for the next book

Oh so boring!

Just couldn't get to grips with this book. So disappointed. Too many difficult names to remember. Not at all a storyline I expected. Just couldn't follow it!!!!

Another good one

Very good story following the tried and tested formula. Entertaining.
The only down side, which is in all the books, is the rather nauseating saccharine sweet reminders about what wonderful saintly and morally upstanding people the Ryan family are. I found the historical background information interesting.

When will we see Jack Ryan Jr on Amazon?

I've been following the campus series since the beginning and this story doesn't disappoint. honestly there is enough content for a movie franchise now like with the Avengers.
