Jack Ryan, der amerikanische Präsident, ist beunruhigt. Die ganze Welt scheint verrückt zu spielen: Revolutionen in Afrika, Unruhen in Russland und China. Jack Ryan muss handeln: Er schickt seinen besten Mann, den kampferprobten John Clark, der die Dinge vor Ort regeln soll.
President Jack Ryan faces a world crisis unlike any he has ever known in Tom Clancy\'s extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller.
A high-level assassination attempt in Russia has the newly elected Ryan sending his most trusted eyes and ears-including antiterrorism specialist John Clark-to Moscow, for he fears the worst is yet to come. And he\'s right. The attempt has left the already unstable Russia vulnerable to ambitious forces in China eager to fulfill their destiny-and change the face of the world as we know it...
