...a subplot in which Ryan Jr gets a love interest is simply ludicrous. While readable, this is a flawed Clancy, with or without a co-author.

Synopsis

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.

Excellent
Reviewed by Joe Hartlaub on Dec 16 2011

Almost the size of three books, it has enough plots to sustain at least four. Yet it is almost impossible not to want more. Why? The ending.

Good
Reviewed by Jack Kelly on May 09 2012

Readers of adventure novels expect some implausibilities. The rest of the novel's premises are all too plausible -- which is what makes "Locked On" so exciting...it's hard to put down.
