Tom Clancy Shadow of the Dragon: A Jack Ryan Novel, Book 20 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
A missing Chinese scientist, unexplained noises emanating from under the Arctic ice, and a possible mole in American intelligence are just some of the problems that plague President Jack Ryan in the latest entry in Tom Clancy's number-one New York Times best-selling series.
Aboard an icebreaker in the Arctic Ocean, a sonar operator hears an unusual noise coming from the ocean floor. She can't isolate it and chalks the event up to an anomaly in a newly installed system. Meanwhile, operatives with the Chinese Ministry of State Security are dealing with their own mystery - the disappearance of brilliant but eccentric scientist, Liu Wangshu. They're desperate to keep his crucial knowledge of aerospace and naval technology out of their rivals' hands.
Finding Liu is too great an opportunity for any intelligence service to pass up, but there's one more problem. A high-level Chinese mole, codenamed Surveyor, has managed to infiltrate American intelligence. President Jack Ryan has only one choice: Send John Clark and his Campus team deep into China to find an old graduate student of the professor's who may hold the key to his whereabouts. It's a dangerous gamble, but with John Clark holding the cards, Jack Ryan is all in.

The group is broken up into groups searching for a woman and her daughter. The CIA and FBI are searching for a mole who is giving secrets to China.
I thought the book was too scattered. It seemed folks were all over the place and the book didn’t flow easily. Mr. Cameron is an excellent author, not sure what happened with this book. It’s just not up to his usual writing.
This book was interesting, I found myself going to the internet to learn about the Uyghurs. I had read some but this inspired me to do more research. I loved that there seemed to be different stories going on that all intersected at the end, I really enjoyed action sequences. Interesting characters, good and bad.
Mr. Cameron does not write a book that is not enjoyable. If you have not read his Jericho Quinn series and his Arliss Cutter series, you have some reading ahead of you. As far as continuing the Jack Ryan books and the Tom Clancy world of characters, I’m so relieved he has this!

The Campus operatives are slowly being replaced by gradual introduction of others who we'll probably see more of as the books progress with Jack Ryan Jr. taking a more leading role.
A thoroughly good read
The book is well-written, but does not engage. I only finished by skipping many paragraphs.
