Jack Ryan, Jr. is out to avenge the murder of an old friend, but the vein of evil he's tapped into may run too deep for him to handle in the latest electric entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.
While on vacation in Barcelona, Jack Ryan, Jr. is surprised to run into an old friend at a small café. A first, Renee Moore seems surprised to see Jack, but then she just seems irritated and distracted. After making plans to meet later, Jack leaves, only to miss the opportunity to ever speak to Renee again, as the café is destroyed minutes later by a suicide bomber. A desperate Jack plunges back into the ruins to save his friend, but it's too late. As she dies in his arms, she utters one word, "Sammler."
When the police show up they are initially suspicious of Jack until they are called off by a member of the Spanish Intelligence Service. This mysterious sequence of events sends the young Campus operative on an unrelenting search to find out the reason behind Renee's death. Along the way, he discovers that his old friend had secrets of her own--and some of them may have gotten her killed.
Jack has never backed down from a challenge, but some prey may be too big for one man.
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.
