A brand new Jack Ryan paperback following hot on the heels of a successful movie reboot . . .

Decades ago, as a young CIA analyst, President Jack Ryan, Sr. inadvertently uncovered the existence of a KGB assassin, code-named Zenith. He never found the killer.

In the present, President Valeri Volodin has risen to power in the Russian republic. But the foundations of his empire are built on a bloody secret from the past, and he'll eliminate anyone who comes close to that truth.

When an old friend of the Ryans is poisoned by a radioactive agent, the trail leads to Russia. And for Jack Ryan, Jr. it's time to finish what his father started . . .

About the authors

Tom Clancy

Thirty years ago Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore's Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it 'the perfect yarn.' From that day forward, Clancy established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. He passed away in October 2013.
