A NEW WORLD ORDER...ON THE BRINK OF DESTRUCTION
Peace may finally be at hand in the Middle East — as Jack Ryan lays the groundwork for a plan that could end centuries of conflict. But ruthless terrorists have a final, desperate card to play; with one terrible act, distrust mounts,forces collide, and the floundering U.S. president seems unable to copewith the crisis.
With the world on the verge of nuclear disaster, Ryan must frantically seek a solution — before the chiefs of state lose control of themselves and the world.
The chilling, action-packed #1 bestseller The New York Times Book Review calls a whiz-bang page-turner—from the author of The Hunt For Red October and Clear and Present Danger. As Deputy Director of the CIA, Jack Ryan faces the challenge of his career when his proposal for a Middle East peace plan is thwarted by terrorists who intend to destroy Israel—after detonating an atomic bomb on American soil. Very nearly scoops reality.— Chicago Tribune.
