Recommendation of the week “Locked On” by Tom Clancy

“Although his father had been reluctant to become a field operative. Jack Ryan Jr. wants nothing more. Privately training with a season Special Forces drill instructor, he’s honing his skills to transition his work within The Campus from intelligence analysis to hunting down and eliminating terrorists whereever he can-even as Jack Ryan Sr. campaigns for relection as President of the Unted states.

But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and he personal have just become equally dangerous. A devout enemy of Jack Sr. launches a privately funded vendetta to discredit him by connecting the presidential canidate to a mysterious killing in the past by John Clark, his long time ally. A shadowy mercenary team is dispatched to capture the former Navy SEAL.

With Clark on the run, it’s up to Jack Ryan Jr. along with Ding Chavez, Dominic Caruso, and the rest of the Campus team, to stop a threat emerging in the middle east: A corrupt Pakistani General has entered a deadly pact with a fanatical terrorist to procure nuclear warheads, which can be used to black mail any world power into submission.”

Against this dismal backdrop, a SWAT team is ambushed and radioactive materials are stole by a group calling themselves the Knights of the True Republic. Is the battle against the goverment about to be taken to a new and deadlier level?

The Nevada Wing-led by retired Air Force Lieutenant-General Patrick McLanahan, his son Bradley, and other volunteers-uses their military skils in the sky and on the ground to hunt down violent terrorists. But how will Patrick respond when extremists launch a catastrophic dirty bomb attack in Reno, spreading radiological fallout for miles? And when Bradley is caught in a deadly double-cross that jeopardizes the CAP, Patrick will have to fight to find out where his friends loyalties lie: Are they with him and the CAP or with the terrorists”
