Jack Ryan, Jr's race to stop an international criminal conspiracy is intertwined with the fate of an old friend in this blistering entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.
The CIA's deepest secrets are being given away for a larger agenda that will undermine the entire Western intelligence community. Director of National Intelligence Mary Pat Foley wants it stopped but doesn't know who, how or why.
Jack Ryan, Jr., is dispatched to Poland on a different mission. The clues are thin, and the sketchy trail dead ends in a harrowing fight from which he barely escapes with his life.
If that's not bad enough, Jack gets more tragic news. An old friend, who's dying from cancer, has one final request for Jack. It seems simple enough, but before it's done, Jack will find himself alone, his life hanging by a thread. If he survives, he'll be one step closer to finding the shadowy figure behind the CIA leak and its true purpose, but in the process, he'll challenge the world's most dangerous criminal syndicate with devastating consequences.
American novelist, Mike Maden, was born in the San Joaquin Valley of California in 1960. He worked in canneries, feed mills, and slaughterhouses that were part of the Valley where he grew up. His interest in history and warfare led him to work towards his Ph.D in political science, focusing on conflict and technology in international relations.
Maden's chosen genre of techno-thriller was born out of his love of Tom Clancy novels. His first book read was the iconic "The Hunt for Red October". After that, Maden pretty much devoted his writing career to the genre, having written: Drone, then sequels, Blue Warrior, Drone Command, and Drone Threat. He then joined "The Campus" as a novelist in Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, Jr. series. His first publication in this new series is "Point of Contact.
Along with his writing, Maden worked on political campaigns in Texas, both state and national. He also was a screenwriter and producer for TV shows and films originating from Hollywood.
