Tom Clancy Code of Honor Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
As president of the United States, Jack Ryan has faced many challenges, but none have been as personal as this, and never has he been this helpless in the face of evil in the latest entry in Tom Clancy's number one New York Times best-selling series.
Father Pat West, SJ, was a buddy of the young Jack Ryan when they were both undergraduates at Boston College. Father West left a comfortable job in the philosophy department at Georgetown to work with the poor in Indonesia. Now, he's been arrested and accused of blasphemy against Islam.
President Ryan is desperate to rescue his old friend, but he can't move officially against the Indonesians. Instead, he relies on the Campus team to find out who is framing the priest.
There's one other twist to the story. President Ryan discovers a text on his private cell phone from the priest warning about a coming attack against America....

Although Mark Greaney's additions were more entertaining and exciting, Marc Cameron is probably the technically better writer, and his books are very Clancy-like. They actually read like something Clancy himself may have written. Cameron's prose comes very close to replicating Clancy's voice, and he writes slow building plots involving disparate threads that slowly weave together. His books also have a little less action than Greaney's, but a heavier focus on espionage spycraft and law enforcement. Cameron also excels at developing his characters, including his original, non-Clancy characters.
This addition is no exception. It's a well written and realistic story involving Chinese spies conspiring to steal a sophisticated artificial intelligence and a plot to bring down President Ryan. It's a bit different in that the first half of the book barely features Ryan or The Campus cast of characters, instead mostly focusing on secondary characters and setting up the suspenseful second half of the book that delivers original plots and scenarios for the characters.
So, while the President Ryan/Jack JR Campus stuff is becoming a bit worn out, Marc Cameron delivers a competently executed thriller.
Highly recommend reading this book.

The central idea of this book is very current - an AI programme that can get into any system and cause chaos. What would happen if that was unleashed on the world? I'd read that.
But the execution is all a bit underwhelming. The resolution, in particular, is a real let down. I won't spoil it, but it's rubbish.
There are the typical chases, gun fights, military/spy guff and lots of slightly worrying right wing world views, which are all good fun, but the overall experience was disappointing. Now that Mr Clancy has passed on, I wonder if the time has come to call it quits?
