Review:

Tom Clancy goes to the White House in this thriller of political terror and global disaster. The American political situation takes a disturbing turn as the President, Congress and Supreme Court are obliterated when a Japanese terrorist lands a 747 on the Capitol. Meanwhile, the Iranians are unleashing an Ebola virus threat on the country. Jack Ryan, CIA agent, is cast into the middle of this maelstrom. As a result of a recent sex scandal, Ryan had been appointed vice president, but it's an office he doesn't hold for long when he finds himself suddenly thrust into the Chief Executive's chair. He goes after the Iranians and then tries to piece together the country and his life the only way he knows how--with a fury, which is what we've come to expect in Clancy's intricate, detailed and accurate stories of warfare and intrigue.
