Review

“Tom Clancy has passed the torch to a new generation.”--St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Clancy still reigns.”--The Washington Post

“The man who virtually invented this genre.”--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Product Description

Though his father had been reluctant to become a heroic field operative, Jack Ryan, Jr. wants nothing more…

 

Privately training with special forces, he’s honing his combat skills to continue his work within the Campus, hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can—even as Jack Ryan, Sr. campaigns to become President of the United States again.

But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and personal have just become equally dangerous. A devout enemy of Jack, Sr. launches a privately-funded vendetta to discredit him and connect him to a mysterious killing in his longtime ally John Clark’s past. All they have to do is catch him.

With Clark on the run, it’s up to Jack, Jr. to stop a growing threat emerging in the Middle East, where a corrupt Pakistani general has entered into a deadly pact with a fanatical terrorist to procure four nuclear warheads they can use to blackmail any world power into submission—or face annihilation.

I was an old fan of Tom Clancy back in the day of "Red Storm Rising" and "Cardinal Of The Kremlin". I even enjoyed "Without Remorse" and "Rainbow Six", even though it started to become cowboy-ish. However I stopped reading his books when the Ops-Center and Net Force series came out. I found them to be schlocky and simply not worth my time.

Recently I received "Locked On" as a gift and upon reading the first couple of pages I thought perhaps Clancy had gone back to his old style of writing. What a mistake...

1 - This book is ghost written. It's clear by the style of writing. Not to say this is a bad thing, but it's quite noticeable. The level of detail is poor. There are glaring character development mistakes and it feels simply unreal and/or unbelievable.

2 - I've admittedly missed some of Clancy's books just prior to "Locked On", so I haven't seen the evolution of his writing or his personality. However I was absolutely shocked at the level of political partisanship. I'm neither right or left but I found his obtuse and generalized view of both political parties to be a disservice to him, his readers and dare I say his fellow countrymen.

3 - Clancy has always had an American slant. America always has the edge in his books. I never begrudged him that. It's his country, his book. Why not. But I couldn't believe that the entire book had essentially 4 characters hopping around the globe solving everyone's problems. Not only that, but there was a conscious effort to make every government institution (American or otherwise) appear useless if not corrupt and damaging to it's citizens.

I loved that book from cover to cover......... It is smart, imaginative and filled with enigma and thrill. I can't wait for the sequal of sort. Yes there will be a sequal and I suspect as I write this down it is being either written or at proof reading . If anyone does not beleive me, read the last page.

With James Patterson, David Baldaci and Clive Cussler Ton Clancy is KING

Amazon better send me a notice when that is published

Locked On has all of the standard Clancy traits: interwoven story lines, lots of military detail, and some good twists and turns to keep you interested. Certainly not his best, but a good ready for any Clancy fan.

Really typical Clancy fare. Not his best work but definitely not his worst. Pretty straightforward plot with only one or two twists. Prefer Clancy when several apparently disparate plots come together in the end. This one really only had two and a bit of deus ex machina used to pull them together. Maybe the villain's role was underdeveloped in this one. However, at the end of the day, I enjoyed it and rushed through the last 100 or so pages because I couldn't put it down.

You can never go wrong with a Tom Clancy story. Clancy's original writings were 100% pure excitement to read! Since he just uses his name to sell novels written by someone else, they are not as good as the pure Tom Clancy books.
Nevertheless, I am about half way through "Locked On" and I am enjoying it very much.
