Jack Ryan, Jr., learns that sometimes the deadliest secret may be standing right next to you in this electrifying adventure in Tom Clancy’s #1 New York Times bestselling series.
Former U.S. Senator Weston Rhodes is a defense contractor with an urgent problem. His company needs someone to look over the books of Dalfan Technologies, a Singapore company—quickly. He turns to his old friend Gerry Hendley for help. Hendley Associates is one of the best financial analysis firms in the country and the cover for The Campus, a top-secret American intelligence agency. Rhodes asks for two specific analysts, Jack Ryan Jr., and Paul Brown, a mild-mannered forensic accountant.
Both Ryan and Brown initially resist, for different reasons. On the long flight over, Ryan worries he’s being sidelined from the next Campus operation in America’s war on terror. Brown—who was never very good with people—only worries about the numbers, and finding a good cup of tea.
Brown has no idea Jack works for The Campus but the awkward accountant is hiding secrets of his own. Rhodes has tasked him with uploading a cyberwarfare program into the highly secure Dalfan Technologies mainframe on behalf of the CIA.
On the verge of mission success, Brown discovers a game within the game, and the people who now want to kill him are as deadly as the cyclone bearing down on the island nation. Together Ryan and Brown race to escape both the murderous storm and a team of trained assassins in order to prevent a global catastrophe, even at the cost of their own lives.
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.
