I was saddened to learn that "True Faith and Allegiance" would be Mark Greaney's last book in the Tom Clancy Jack Ryan universe. He has crafted a number of great Jack Ryan novels both with Tom Clancy and after Clancy's passing. Fortunately, like Greaney's other novels, "True Faith" is a superb specimen and is a great sendoff for the author.
"True Faith" wastes no time in getting off the ground. An American war hero is targeted by an assassin in a restaurant, and he is only the first in a long line of American military and intelligence personnel to be targeted for arrest or elimination. It quickly becomes apparent to President Jack Ryan that a massive U.S. government data breach has put countless government employees at risk, but no one is sure who has perpetrated the breach, or how much information they have. U.S. intelligence services--including the clandestine group of heroes at the Campus--must put a stop to the deadly madness, but the longer they take, the more lives are put in jeopardy by a shadowy and unknown perpetrator.
Like all Jack Ryan novels, "True Faith" has a terribly interesting and engaging plot, made all the more effective by its realism. So much of the plot devices are drawn from today's headlines, whether they be ISIS, Bitcoin, or the dangers of social media, and all the elements are drawn together into an effective blend of intelligent and entertaining storytelling. The plot moves at a breakneck pace and will never leave you bored or feeling like it's time to move on. All the characters Clancy readers know and love are in the novel, as well as few new ones. All the characters behave like long-time readers would expect, a testament to author Mark Greaney's mastery of working in the Tom Clancy universe. The various plot threads are deftly handled and drawn together into an thoroughly entertaining and satisfying conclusion in the Clancy tradition.
Readers of the Tom Clancy brand should not miss out on "True Faith and Allegiance." It is a quality novel like one would expect and could not be a better finale for the excellent Mark Greaney.
Somehow, internal terrorists have figured out how to bombard the United States with highly specific targeting information about individual military and government personnel. Unraveling this process and stopping the terrorists is the US’s goal. Aided by the secret actions of “The Campus,” Jack Ryan, Junior, son of President Jack Ryan, Senior, ferrets out the information and figures out how the targeting is done.
Within “The Campus,” personnel changes are in the works, as one person’s promoted and another reliable shooter is brought into the fold. In other words, life moves on.
I rank this 742-page novel as family friendly with no steamy situations, little in the form of curse words, but somewhat heavy on the deaths. However, Clancy fans will feel right at home. There are a few mechanical problems with the actual writing, but most readers will not even notice.
Bring on the military hardware and the covert operatives!

Mark Greaney writes a great book anyway and combined with the Clancy characters it is extremely entertaining.
A typical America rescues the world story but so what, fantasy is fun sometimes.
A great pity the original Clancy books are not generally available in kindle format.
