Jack Ryan defends the USA against economic sabotage from the East that escalates into war in Tom Clancy’s record-breaking Sunday Times No 1 bestseller – now reissued in a new cover.
It begins with the murder of an American woman in the back streets of Tokyo. It ends in war…
Called out of retirement to serve as the new President’s National Security Adviser, Jack Ryan quickly realizes that the problems of peace are fully as complex as those of war. Enemies have become friends, friends enemies, and even the form of conflict has changed. When one of those new enemies readies a strike not only at America’s territory, but at the heart of her economy, it is Ryan who must somehow prepare an untested President to meet the challenge. For there is a debt of honour to be paid – and the price will be terrifyingly high…

Razio Yamata is one of Japan's most influential industrialists, and part of a relatively small cabal who exert tremendous authority in the Pacific Rim's economic powerhouse. He has devised a plan to cripple America's pre-eminent standing, humble the U.S. military and elevate Japan to a position of dominance on the world stage. Yamata's motivation lies in his desire to pay off a Debt of Honour to his parents and to the country he feels is responsible for their deaths: America. All he needs is a catalyst to set his plan in motion. When the faulty gas tank on one Tennessee family's car leads to their fiery death, an opportunistic U.S. congressman uses the occasion to rush a new trade law through the system. The law is designed to squeeze Japan economically. Instead, it provides Yamata with the leverage he needs to put his plan into action. As Yamata's plan begins to unfold, it becomes clear to the world that someone is launching a fully integrated operation against the United States. There's only one man to find out who the culprit is: Jack Ryan, the new president's National Security Advisor.Review:
From the reviews of Debt of Honour:
‘Tom Clancy’s latest magnum opus – another blockbuster.’
‘With the grip of a born storyteller, Clancy casts a potent spell.’
‘Tom Clancy’s mammoth new thriller is a convoluted cracker.’
